It's hard to believe this is Johnny Depp's first ever appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, but the Oscar nom was all smiles as he joined co-stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Chloe Grace Moretz to promote the upcoming Tim Burton flick Dark Shadows , on Monday afternoon.
Depp, who plays a vampire in the dark comedy, dished on where he gets inspiration for the zany characters he plays onscreen, while Michelle revealed that the newly single star is on her bucket list!
The Pirates of the Caribbean star says of his inspiration for characters:
- "The idea behind Will Wonka, certain ingredients you add to these characters like Willy Wonka for example. I imagined what George Bush would be like incredibly stoned. And, thus was born my version of Willy Wonka ... Scissorshands was a combination. It was the idea of like a newborn. Like a newborn seeing things for the first time and also a dog that I had. Sort of, this dog that I had This unconditional love, this sort of purity in my dog. Those were the basic ingredients…"
The Scarface star dished on working with Depp:
- "He has been on my bucket list but at one point I was leaving out to “work with” part and um… I realized that might not sound so good…"
"I fear it more than anything in the world," the father of two revealed to Ellen. "Doing a film when it’s choreographed and you’re a character. It’s all right but in life I’d rather swallow a bag of hair…."
Yikes! See the stars greeting their fans at the movie's premiere in the video below.
