She’s done really interesting films - she’s like the female Johnny Depp. She could be Hollywood, but it’s the film choices she’s made that set her apart. And what I love about her is that she has her own style, she loves what she loves and she’s an incredibly confident woman, but she’s totally up for change. Most celebrities want to repeat what they’ve honed and are comfortable in, but she’s up for doing anything which is unusual in an actress. - Lucinda Chambers
"She’s like a female Johnny Depp"
No, she’s not.
She’s Helena Bonham Carter. She’s an amazing actress and she doesn’t need Johnny’s name to lift her to that status.
That was probably a joke considering how many films they costar in. Even not directed by Tim Burton.
I think I’ve read a quote about the actors, where Johnny Depp joked about how it seems like they try to “out weird” each other.
