Burton/Depp Love Interests

He gave it to me to read, I think just because I’m a friend obviously. I made a child with him – so he just wanted me to read it anyway, you know, just to see what I thought. And I did think it was a beautiful script and really moving. Actually, a brilliant script. And that’s the thing with animated films – I often feel that puppets get the better parts compared to us normal actresses.

Burton’s 12 Days of Christmas

Well, first of all he gave it to me to read, I think just because I’m a friend obviously. I made a child with him – so he just wanted me to read it anyway, you know, just to see what I thought.

(on her involvement with Corpse Bride)    

I love it, actually. Because it’s sort of intense acting. You know, film acting can be so boring because you’re waiting around 90% of the time. And with doing a voice for character, you still have to act. There’s no way you can just phone it in. You have to be even more committed to it because there’s so little to help you actually get there. You’re on your own and you just sort of invite this psychosis that I think, you know, this completely imagined world.
