Director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have a professional relationship that spans several years, having had collaborated on such films as “Edward Scissorhands,” “Ed Wood,” “Sleepy Hollow,” “Corpse Bride,” and now “Sweeney Todd.” When Burton chatted with press to promote his most recent film, he admitted that Johnny Depp doesn’t seem to exhibit much vanity–a rare quality in an actor.
“I like actors who don’t look at themselves all the time, on the monitor after takes, and Johnny’s one of them.”
“I’m not sure he’s seen any of the movies we’ve made together.”
Burton also revealed that Depp’s wild and crazy hairdo in “Sweeney Todd” was all Johnny’s idea, indicating that the actor’s inspiration come straight out of the world of high-fashion.
“He modeled it after that Vogue editor.”
Only, I have a feeling that Johnny’s character of “Sweeney Todd,” the homicidal barber is probably a lot less terrifying than her.
