With its mixture of singing and killing, Sweeney Todd is set to be one of the biggest and most fun movies of 2008. And who better to take us behind the scenes of the flick than Johnny Depp – who plays the Demon Barber Of Fleet Street – and director Tim Burton. Below they chat about everything from learning to sing to how “lathering up Alan Rickman” was the most uncomfortable moment of Johnny’s life.
Johnny, Can you talk about your relationship with the razors?
Depp: Having worked with sharp objects before, everything was fine until I had to shave someone.
Burton: He didn’t have trouble with the razors, he was freaked out by the shaving cream.
Depp: It made me a little nervous.
Burton: Am I right was that one of the hardest things to do was lather up Alan Rickman?
Depp: It was one of the most uncomfortable moments of my life as it would be.
Burton: Poor Alan.
Was he screaming?
Burton: Inside he was.
Depp: He really didn’t enjoy it. So in that sense I’m sure he probably hated working with me.
