“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.

    Looks like the Depp PR team is trying to convince us that Johnny is still attractive. Helen has been quoted a few times now showing admiration for Johnny as an actor and even a godparent. I find nothing attractive about a man who allegedly cheated and abandoned family life with Vanessa, the mother of his two minor children, to allegedly go chasing after his latest, Amber Heard, who reportedly played him for a fool with another woman.

    Many will argue that Depp and Vanessa were long over before the split was announced. It is equally unattractve that he would be a poser “family man” for as long as the Disney POTC4/5 money was good. Real family men (and women) committed to a family unit take exception with the thought of Mr. Depp making money off our backs by pretending to be one of us (Dec 2011 Larry King). Philandering doesn’t play well to the Disney crowd, especially when he made such a big deal (fall 2012 Ellen Show) about not wanting to be that 21 Jump Street “product” and his authenticity.

    Fans and former fans from the 21 Jump Street era have grown up and know Depp is not the same attractive young man he used to be, nor do we take acceptance cues about his likely deception of fans from Helena Bonham Carter.

    PR stunts with “leaks” of a necklace given to Vanessa on a family vacation and holding hands at the French market make us wonder how much extra settlement payment she received to do it for the appeasement of his fans.

    My family, friends, and I are all aware of how we vote for our family values with out pocketbooks at the box office of the silver screen and any other venue we will boycott Mr. Depp.
