Two months ago, Johnny Depp had the scare of a lifetime when his 7-year-old daughter Lily-Rose was rushed to the hospital after falling seriously ill.

Fortunately, she’s doing fine now. And off-camera, the very private Depp was appreciative when “Access Hollywood’s” Maria Menounos expressed her concern for his daughter, but Johnny was not ready to share the details of what happened with the rest of the world.

Instead, Johnny shared the story of Lily-Rose, himself… and Barbie.

“Actually one of the only things I’m good at is playing Barbie,” Johnny smiled.

Yep, that’s right. Daddy Depp plays Barbie with his daughter, who is on the mend after being hospitalized with a life threatening infection back in February.

Lily turns 8 on May 27 and last year, Johnny threw two big parties for her. So what comes next?

“Are you planning three parties this year? Will it be the biggest celebration yet?” Maria asked.

“I think we might stick with two birthdays,” Johnny said.

But for Johnny, three is the number on the high seas as “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” is getting ready to hit theaters.

So is this third installment the last pirate plunder for Johnny’s popular Captain Jack Sparrow?

“Is this really 100 percent it?” Maria asked.

“I don’t know. I don’t know if you can ever say for sure,” Johnny explained. “But there’s a part of me that would love to see Captain Jack again.”

However, if that’s the case, Johnny may have to set sail without his “Pirates” co-star Keira Knightley.

“Keira Knightley recently said she wants to quit movies,” Maria told Johnny.

“Oh really?” he responded.

“She said she wants to pursue a more normal life. Do you have any advice for her? Any thoughts?” Maria asked him.

“I would say that if Keira is ready to give it up and walk away, I would salute her and say ‘Absolutely. You’re right,’” Johnny said.

“Did you ever have thoughts like that of just wanting to get away from all the madness?” Maria asked.

“I probably have the thoughts regularly about every 11 minutes for the last 20 years,” Johnny grinned.

“Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” hits theaters May 25.
