Helena Bonham Carter talks ‘The Lone Ranger,’ work with Johnny Depp who’s ‘one of the most beautiful men in the world’
Helena Bonham Carter has worked with Johnny Depp atleast six times including “Alice in Wonderland” and this summer’s “The Lone Ranger.”
Now the wife of director Tim Burton talks about working with Depp and the film “Lone Ranger” in a new interview with MSN UK.
“He is funny because he’s one of the most beautiful men in the world and he just covers himself up to such a degree, but he does make me laugh. It’s always fun with Johnny because you’ve no idea what he’s going to come as. His make-up and his costume is always like – pile it on more… he’s somewhere in there.” She adds, “Actually the first time I worked with him he was 120 years old, old, old, make-up, so it might not have been Johnny, in fact it probably wasn’t!”
The “Les Miserables” actress confessed it was strange working with Depp without her husband around.
“It was a bit weird when I walked on set and there was Johnny in his usual crazy make-up, tons of make-up. And me looking actually a bit strange too – I had one leg and a peg leg. And there was no Tim. And then we got used to it. Gore Verbinski is very funny. He’s worked with Johnny a lot and it was fun.”
Set for July 3, 2013, “The Lone Ranger” also stars Armie Hammer at the title character, Ruth Wilson, Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper and James Badge Dale.
