1/18. Robert De Niro was originally offered the role of Captain Jack Sparrow. However, he turned down the role because he thought that the film would do poorly in box offices.
2/18. Keira Knightley admitted that she constantly had to pad her chest in order to make it appear as though there was “something there”.
3/18. Davy Jones’ tentacles were partially real and partially created by special effects.
4/18. When Orlando Bloom was filming Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of the Rings in 2001, he got an elvish tattoo on his right wrist. It is covered during most of the Pirates films, but is mistakenly revealed when he raises his right arm in the sword fighting scene in Curse Of The Black Pearl. You can also see it later in the movie when he reaches out to grab the medallion from Elizabeth’s chest.
5/18. Keira Knightley felt very under-qualified for the role of Elizabeth Swann. She packed as little as possible when she left to start filming because she was convinced that she would be fired within the first few days of production.
6/18. During filming, Johnny Depp wore contact lenses that acted like sunglasses so he wouldn’t have to squint while facing the sun.
