Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards once used heavy duty household glue to fix his teeth when his veneers fell out, according to his bandmate Ronnie Wood.

Wood opened up about his own dental make-over in an interview with Britain's "The Guardian" newspaper, revealing his porcelain caps frequently come loose and his girlfriend Ana Araujo often has to help him fix them back in place with special dental glue.

And he also revealed that Richards once tried the same trick - but used an extra-strength adhesive to mend his smile.

Wood says, "A couple of these (teeth) have fallen out. I got the ...

Keith Richards
Rocker Keith Richards spends a fortune on storing his collection of 3,000 guitars, but he only ever plays 15 of them onstage or in a recording studio.

The Rolling Stones star has amassed a huge haul of instruments during his five decades in the music industry, but most of his prized collection is gathering dust in a warehouse.

And the legendary hellraiser is also humble about his plucking skills, insisting he's not a very good guitarist.

He tells Britain's BBC Radio 2, "The storage costs me more than they're worth. I don't even consider myself a guitar player. I am not a Hendrix or Clapt...

Johnny Depp initially confused Disney bosses with his Pirates Of The Caribbean rogue Jack Sparrow - they assumed the character was gay or drunk.

Depp was confronted by movie executives after his first performances as the flamboyant pirate, who the actor has admitted was inspired by Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards.

He tells Vanity Fair magazine, "They just couldn't stand him. (I got calls from) upper-Disney-ites, going, 'Is he, you know, like some kind of weird simpleton? Is he drunk? By the way, is he gay?'"

However, Depp refused to change the eccentric Sparrow, who has since hel...

Keith Richards had no idea who Johnny Depp was when they first met at the Rolling Stones star's house - he assumed the actor was one of his son's "dope dealer" friends.

Depp has cited the guitarist as the inspiration behind his swashbuckling Pirates of the Caribbean character Jack Sparrow and the pair even starred as father and son in the franchise's third installment in 2007.

However, Depp failed to make an impression on his idol at their first meeting - the rocker just thought he was a friend of his son Marlon.

The Rolling Stones are in talks to stage a 50th anniversary tour in 2011, according to drummer Charlie Watts.

The rocker, who will turn 70 next year, admits the supergroup can no longer afford to make distant plans, and so they're talking about an extensive, perhaps final, world trek sooner rather than later.

Watts tells Le Parisien, "We said that if we do something, it will be next year or the year after... We've reached an age where you can't look too far into the future."

His co-founders Mick Jagger and Keith Richards will both turn 70 in 2013.

The depths of the Rolling Stones' drug-fueled 1971 recording sessions in the South of France have been exposed by the eight year old who was used as a drug mule just so Keith Richards could give bandmate Mick Jagger cocaine as a wedding gift.

Our Favorite Movie Cameos
There are a lot of modern movies that love to give little winks at the audience, and one of the easiest ways to do that is through the use of cameo appearances. A cameo is when a well known celebrity or important person shows up for a brief appearance in a movie. It can be a non-speaking random role, or perhaps a whole scene that steals the show. Whatever the case may be, oftentimes in a film the cameo ends up being the most memorable part of the whole movie. Take "Zombieland" for example, out in theaters now, but there's no spoilers here. Just go see the film and you'll see. Here's a look ...

Johnny Depp's Best & Worst Films - Do You Agree?

June 30th, 2009 9:36am EDT

The problem with an actor like Johnny Depp is finding movies in his history that aren't fantastic. Then you have to consider the movies that aren't that good, but that he was great in anyway (which covers basically everything else).

The truth is, this Kentucky-born actor is one of the best in his or anyone's generation, and he also is an accomplished producer, director, screenwriter, and yes, even has quite a set of singing pipes. Good thing he's just so unattractive or he might just be the perfect Hollywood hunk ... oh wait. He's gorgeous. Damn you, Johnny Depp!
