Edward Scissorhands
A scientist has named a fossil after Johnny Depp after he saw a resemblance to Edward Scissorhands.

David Legg, a british scientist from Imperial College London, discovered a 505 million-year-old fossil that appears to have been an ancestor of lobster and scorpions. The fossil had large, scissor-like claws.

Legg thought the claws looked like the titular character in Edward Scissorhands, and decided to name it Kooteninchela deppi after the movie's star.

Legg says, "When I first saw the pair of isolated claws in the fossil records of this species, I could not help but think of Edward Sciss...

Helena Bonham Carter Calls For Tim Burton To Be Knighted

Helena Bonham
Helena Bonham Carter has called for her American partner Tim Burton to receive an honorary knighthood, because his love of all things English has helped provide thousands of jobs for British film workers.

The California-born Edward Scissorhands director has lived in the U.K. ever since he fell in love with London while scouting for locations for Sleepy Hollow in 1999.

Since his relocation, Burton shoots many of his big budget movies in the U.K., helping keep country's tight-knit film industry in business. And his long term partner Bonham Carter is adamant he should be made a honorary kn...

Winona Ryder refuses to date anyone outside of the movie industry because she mistrusts "normal" guys.

The Edward Scissorhands beauty has been linked to a number of famous hunks over the years and was engaged to Johnny Depp in the early 1990s. And Ryder admits she is reluctant to become involved with anyone who isn't part of Hollywood after a chance encounter with a fan left her "mistrustful" of men and their motives.

She tells Elle magazine, "I remember being at this bar called Tosca in San Francisco, and I met this guy one night. He was really cute, and we were talking, and then, like...

Keith Richards Thought Johnny Depp Was A 'Dope Dealer'

Keith Richards
Keith Richards had no idea who Johnny Depp was when they first met at the Rolling Stones star's house - he assumed the actor was one of his son's "dope dealer" friends.

Depp has cited the guitarist as the inspiration behind his swashbuckling Pirates of the Caribbean character Jack Sparrow and the pair even starred as father and son in the franchise's third installment in 2007.

However, Depp failed to make an impression on his idol at their first meeting - the rocker just thought he was a friend of his son Marlon.

Johnny Depp was so desperate to team up with his movie collaborator Tim Burton for Alice In Wonderland - he would have happily played the female lead.

Depp and Burton struck up a friendship after the Hollywood hunk appeared in 1990's Edward Scissorhands, and they have made a series of movies together over the last 20 years, including Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

Spotlight On Dramatic Actors Who Choose To Go Comedic

Matt Damon may have once started out as a serious thespian with small parts in films like Courage Under Fire and The Rainmaker, but he really didn't make a name for himself until 1997's Good Will Hunting, for which he also won an Oscar for screenwriting. There the blond-mopped young man played deep, pensive, and somewhat brooding characters, so it's a far cry to see him years later donning prosthetic noses and busy mustaches in order to get some added laughs for quirky, somewhat socially awkward characters. But Damon, in movies like the Ocean's Eleven series and now The Informant has proven...

Writer's Viewpoint: Tim Burton Has Become A Fad Disguised As Art

August 19th, 2009 10:40am EDT
Tim Burton
I'm not against fads per se, but this Tim Burton mess bothers me. It's not the kind of harmless era-defining fad that jelly bracelets and scrunchies were in the 80s, and it's certainly not as subtle as Apple's catchy use of the lower-case "i."

Since the turn of the new millennium, Tim Burton has emerged as a kind of self-perpetuating cultural organism, eating other fads and franchises as it grows overstuffed and unable to control its own ego. And now it might be too late for us to do anything about it. It's like a monster straight out of, well - a Tim Burton film.

The kind of people...

Johnny Depp's Best & Worst Films - Do You Agree?

June 30th, 2009 9:36am EDT
Pirates of the Caribbean
The problem with an actor like Johnny Depp is finding movies in his history that aren't fantastic. Then you have to consider the movies that aren't that good, but that he was great in anyway (which covers basically everything else).

The truth is, this Kentucky-born actor is one of the best in his or anyone's generation, and he also is an accomplished producer, director, screenwriter, and yes, even has quite a set of singing pipes. Good thing he's just so unattractive or he might just be the perfect Hollywood hunk ... oh wait. He's gorgeous. Damn you, Johnny Depp!

Workplace Romance: Costars Who Fell In Love

It is widely acknowledged that workplace romances are a definite no-no; clearly, some famous actors and actresses didn't get the memo. From classic romantic duos Bogey/Bacall and Spencer/Tracy to contemporary pairings like "Bennifer" and "Brangelina", since the inception of cinema, thespians have taken on-set relationships from reel-life to real-life.

Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland's hearts skipped a beat while filming Flatliners (1990). Tom Cruise admired a young Aussie actress named Nicole Kidman and had her cast opposite him in Days of Thunder. The movie Seven ended with Gwynet...

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

April 17th, 2008 8:00am EDT

There's the quintessential romantic comedy, and then there's the romdramedy. Similar to a dramedy (in which there is an equal balance of humor and serious content), a romdramedy combines comedy and drama with that mushy thing we call romance.

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....

Turning Twenty: A Look Back At 1988's 'Beetlejuice'

Half "Bloody Mary" and half decomposing sleezeball, Beetlejuice is the titular anti-hero that helped put Tim Burton into the who's who of Hollywood. Now at its 20th anniversary, let's take a look back at a sparkling example of dark comedy that stands as a precursor to Burton's magical films.

The Movie

Reading the cast list will illicit at least one "oh yeah, he/she was in this" reaction. The ensemble would also make a 1990s romantic comedy cast director salivate: Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, an appearance by the late Robert Goulet, and...

'Sweeney Todd' A Perfect Fit For Burton And Depp's Dark Sensibilities

December 18th, 2007 8:58am EST
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
''Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street'' is the quintessential Tim Burton movie, even though it springs from somebody else's celebrated mind.

Everything about Stephen Sondheim's revered musical, which provided the inspiration for the film, seems tailor-made for the director's sensibilities. Truly, what other filmmaker could tell the story of a vengeful barber (Johnny Depp) who slits his customers' throats and the lovesick baker (Helena Bonham Carter) who grinds up the dead bodies for her meat pies?

It's strangely beautiful and beautifully strange, with horrific subject m...
