TIM Burton has revealed why he’s obsessed with working with Johnny Depp!
The director — who’s worked with Depp on eight movies — says the actor’s brings something different to every role, which he why he always casts Johnny in his films.
“It’s enjoyable working with him. I like actors that like to become characters. Some actors make a career out of being themselves in a movie,” he said.
“But I’ve always enjoyed those real character actors that just like to become different creatures, and he’s that way. In Scissorhands, he didn’t speak. On Ed Wood, he didn’t shut up! On Sweeney Todd he sings. He’s always trying something different on every movie. It’s always a new territory with him.”
“He can do almost anything. I’ve seen it. It’s just a process really. I remember on Scissorhands, same thing. In your heart, simply he’s the guy and everybody knows it. But the thing that always amazes me about Hollywood, they see somebody do one thing and that’s the thing they think they do. So somebody like him, who really does change, I think it makes people uncomfortable. They don’t know what he’s going to do.
“I’ve had that same thing for myself. I think some people recognize that we do good things together and some people get freaked out by that.”
