Johnny Depp said he loves playing Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean series.
The actor relishes the chance to play him because there is no limit to what he can do.

'You can do whatever you want, essentially. He's a free spirit,' Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

Depp will be seen again as Jack Sparrow for the fourth time in the forthcoming film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

He admits that loving his character can cause a problem because he is never ready to let go and performs scenes multiple times.

He said, 'The problem with me is that I enjoy every scene to the point where the director is saying, ''Do you have this yet, are you done?' '

Sir Paul McCartney is reportedly urging India to declare a National Vegetarian Day and Hindus have thrown their weight behind his call to celebrate meat-free living and compassion toward animals.

Well known Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that vegetarianism, besides reducing greenhouse gas emissions, was good for ethical and health reasons also.

McCartney reportedly sent a letter to India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh saying such a day could save animals while helping to protect both the environment and people's health and 'it would be a celebration of life.'

Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that Hinduism promoted strict vegetarianism insisting on ahimsa (non-violence) and non-killing, and renouncing animal slaughter and meat eating. It suggested taking of sattvik (vegetables and fruits) and avoiding rajasik (eggs) and tamasik (meat and intoxicants) foods.

Rajan Zed argued that there was extensive protection of life in Hinduism and ahimsa was a command. All the major religions of the world were opposed to killing, he added.

Zed further said that as eating less meat would help the environment; more celebrities should come out in support of staying away from meat, thus contributing to a healthier world.

To reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the world's livestock, which was one of the most critical contributors to global warming, McCartney is also advocating Meat Free Monday. McCartney, who has been a vegetarian for over 30 years, finds vegetarianism 'very simple, tasty, and most enjoyable'.

According to reports, meat is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than transport's 13 percent.  According to an estimate, around 42 percent of India's about 1.2 billion people are vegetarian.
