Washington, June 17 : Johnny Depp is certainly a man of words, as the actor kept a promise he made to a 12-year-old fan by sending him the fedora he wore as bank robber John Dillinger in his latest film 'Public Enemies'.
Young Jack Taylor requested the 'Pirates Of the Caribbean' star for his hat after he met the actor on the sets of the movie and Depp had good humouredly agreed to pass it on after 'I'm done with it".
When Taylor's parents reminded Depp of his promise to the boy, by writing a letter to the movie star's production company, the young fan got a package on his doorstep.
The box carried the hat and various other promotional items from Depp's past films. The actor's gifts thrilled Taylor's parents, Kris and Matt Brand as the box contained enough goodies for Jack and his four siblings.
"It's not exactly the easiest thing to make all five kids happy, but they did a good job. It's finally nice to see a celebrity being nice and following through on his promises," Contactmusic quoted Kris Brand, as saying.
In fact, the 45-year-old star also sent Jack a short, personal note telling him to enjoy the hat.
"It was pretty awesome when it came. I didn't think it actually would come," the thrilled youngster told TheNorthwestern.com.
