The more we hear about the quirks and hijinks that took place during filming, the more convinced we become that "On Stranger Tides" is the perfect name for the latest installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise (in theaters May 20th).

First, star Penelope Cruz revealed that her co-star Johnny Depp used his fart machine on producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Rob Marshall, and now Cruz — who plays a butt-kicking mermaid with a potty mouth in the film — is revealing that she wasn't opposed to peeing in the ocean while filming the movie. "They left Johnny and I on a deserted island with no bathrooms to do a helicopter shot. That for a pregnant woman can be a little bit of a problem," she said . "So for those few hours I had to keep going into the water every 15 minutes. That was one of those things that you remember forever."

Penelope's son Leo was born in January 2011 and a close friend of the Spanish actress says that she and her hubby Javier Bardem are doing a great job as first-time parents. "They have taken to parenting so naturally," a friend of the couple tells Us Weekly. "Having Leo is a huge dream for them."
