Johnny Depp has been forced to promote his new movie with a crooked set of teeth because he hasn't yet found a dentist to remove the false set he wore for his role in the latest Pirates Of The Caribbean film.

The Hollywood actor has spent the last few months filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and he has been wearing unsightly semi-permanent dentures for his portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow.

But Depp failed to have the teeth removed before he hit the promotional trail for upcoming thriller The Tourist, so he has been attending red carpet events and interviews with a crooked smile.

He tells Access Hollywood, "(I will have them in) until I can find a dentist to rip them out, essentially. They sort of have to be yeah, yanked out... we just literally finished (filming) like, you know, last week."
