Actor Johnny Depp has painted a picture of Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards surrounded by cigarette rolling papers.

The 48-year-old has amassed a huge collection of artwork and a collection of rare manuscripts in his mansion in Hertfordshire, East England.

'I don't know how Johnny gets everything done. With the books, it isn't just a first edition of T. S. Eliot, it's the manuscript. He showed me the first edition of 'Les Fleurs Du Mal' inscribed by Baudelaire,' quoted Depp as saying.

'I couldn't believe it. Then when I got home, I found Johnny had slipped it in my suitcase,' he added.
