Senorita Cruz wasn't exactly the best Spanish teacher.

During a Thursday press conference to promote Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Johnny Depp, 47, said his costar Penelope Cruz helped him brush up on the foreign language -- including its more filthy words.

"She taught me the raunchiest Spanish that I've ever been told. It's so foul that I couldn't bring myself to repeat it, here and now," Depp told reporters. "It's a bad idea. I would carry that on my back for the rest of my days."

Kidding aside, the actor said he had a blast teaming up with Cruz again after working together in Blow 10 years earlier.

"The weird thing was that, when we saw each other again, it felt like we'd wrapped Blow the week before. It just clicked instantly," Depp recalled. "Whatever exists, in terms of chemistry, was just instantly firing on all cylinders. It felt completely right."

"It was Rob Marshall's brilliant idea to bring her in, and when he brought up the idea to me, I went, 'Great idea!' I was very, very excited to have Penelope come into this film," he continued. "I knew she would be, not only a worthy opponent, but someone who would just kill the scenes, and she did. She was incredible."
