Is Disneyland the sexiest place on earth? Well, not anymore. Apparently the actors who were hired by the theme park to play Jack Sparrow, the "sexy, rockstar pirate" from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies have gone to see Davy Jones' locker. Their swashbuckling crime? Driving young female visitors so wild they've been flashing their breasts at the fictional character.
Earlier this year, one such faux-Sparrow discussed his audition in Los Angeles Magazine. "Disney warned us we were going to have a lot of horny women coming on to us," said the anonymous actor. This gives a whole new meaning to "All hands on deck."
Now, because of the Jack Sparrow's supposed power over women, all of the actors playing the character have been fired.
Suzy Brown, a rep for Disneyland, tells momlogic that story is "absolutely untrue." "They were not fired," insists Brown, explaining Disneyland's choice to give pirates their pink slips with a storybook twist. "Jack Sparrow recently set sail for other high-seas adventures."
According to Brown, the rumor was concocted by an actor named Brandon Pinto, a former Jack Sparrow walk-around character, who was featured in the LA mag article. Brown says Pinto hasn't worked for Disneyland for over a year. "This is a disgruntled former cast member," claims Brown.
So is it true that hired Jack Sparrows were engaging in "randy" pirate behavior? One local mom said she witnessed some unsavory behavior from a Jack Sparrow and female park guests first-hand:
"I was at the ride with my two kids. And there were three ladies there carrying on and two exposed themselves repeatedly and the other kept slapping her posterior and pointing -- all directed at Jack Sparrow. They giggled throughout and began winking at my sons -- ages 12 and 11. I was appalled! I immediately filed a complaint with Disney. Nothing was done. I am thrilled they finally realized what was going on. So long Jack Sparrow! This concerned mother is glad to see you go!!!"
When asked about this mom's experience, Brown had no comment, but did stress that Jack Sparrow is still alive and well at Disneyland. "Guests can see Jack Sparrow in our 'Pirates of the Caribbean' attraction." Ay Ay captain!
