Hollywood star Johnny Depp collects celebrity dolls.

Aside from acting the movie star's passion is accumulating star figurines.

"He owns dozens of limited edition Barbies," a source close to the 49-year-old thespian told the Daily Star newspaper.

"He's also got dolls based on Beyoncé and Destiny's Child, the High School Musical cast, New Kids on the Block, Elvis and even Donny Osmond."

The insider continued to explain that Johnny even accessorises his dolls to reflect the goings-on of showbiz news stories.

"The weirdest one is a Lindsay Lohan, complete with ankle monitoring bracelet from when she was under house arrest," the source revealed.

The strange hobby could help the Pirates of the Caribbean actor take his mind off more serious matters.

His mother was recently hospitalised.

Betty Palmer was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles where she is being treated in the facility's respiratory intensive care unit.

The actor visited his beloved mother on Sunday night.

This is the latest blow for him following his split from Vanessa Paradis, the mother of his two children, Lily-Rose, 13, and 10-year-old Jack, after 14 years together.

It was recently revealed he is desperate to rekindle his relationship with Vanessa, and he flew to the south of France in a bid to patch things up with the model, giving her an antique gold pendant bearing the message "my heart is always with you".

A source close to the couple said: "They are having a family holiday to show the kids they are still a strong family even if those two are split or not.

"But the fact he presented her with such a touching gift, it's almost as if they could make another go of things.

"Johnny wants to be with his family, he's a very family orientated man. His kids mean everything to him.

"What they need more than anything is to get together far away from Hollywood and that is what they are doing."
