Johnny Depp is featured on the latest cover of “Entertainment Weekly” in full character as Barnabas Collins from his new flick, “Dark Shadows”. In the magazine, they talk to Johnny as well as director Tim Burton. The magazine talks about the longtime friendship between Johnny and Tim, who have worked together on eight movies over the past twenty years.
Helena Bonham Carter said, “None of us gets their jokes, but they get their jokes and they’re laughing, so whatever.”
Johnny said, “I feel as though he’s my brother. It’s a weird understand, this kind of shorthand we have. I truly understand him and know him, I think, just as well as anybody can. He certainly knows me as well as anybody can.”
Tim said, “We don’t wear our ‘This Is Our 8th Movie Together!’ t-shirts every day.”
The movie centers around Barnabas who is a 200-year-old vampire who is looking to exact his vengeance on a witch who changed him into a vampire. This issue is out today, May 4th.
Whitney Houston’s tragic death on the eve of the Grammy Awards was a shock to the music community and the world. Her fans and colleagues have struggled with her legacy in the days since her passing, reconciling her one-of-a-kind talent with her battle with substance abuse and troubled personal life. In this week’s issue of EW, we explore Houston’s life, her influences, and how she will be remembered.
At the Grammys, Houston’s impact was apparent. Bonnie Raitt, Diane Warren, and other major music industry figures spoke to EW about her influence on their own work and on the music business as a whole. ”She broke the glass ceiling for female R&B singers to cross over,” Raitt said.
Houston’s music is what will live on. From “How Will I Know” to “I Will Always Love You,” we’ve compiled an ultimate Whitney playlist, featuring 25 of Whitney Houston’s best songs, as well as a collection of her life in photos.
True Blood’s Anna Paquin and Alexander Skarsgard revamp (ha!) the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly in their version of the famous American Gothic painting.
And if that’s not enough for you Truebies, we’ve also got the second and third versions of the covers, featuring Anna with Stephen Moyer and her with Joe Manganiello.
Alexander spoke of his female fanbase, saying, “I’ll never get used to that. It’s just very, very humbling and flattering. The character Eric means so much to me and I’m having so much fun playing him. Of course it means a lot when you meet fans and you can actually tell there are people out there who really do care about the character. It means something to you, then. That’s kind of why you do this whole thing.”
If you’ve been fans of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, then you know that the upcoming season is filled with nothing but Sookie and Eric goodness. Of course, Alan Ball has loosely based the hit show on the books, with season four dedicated to Dead To The World. In that book, Eric is cursed by witches and has amnesia. He takes shelter in Sookie’s house and completely devoid of power and politics, they fall in love. (And, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the shower scene!)
Alexander isn’t giving up any of the details on the upcoming season, but he did tell us one thing. He said, “I did some crazy stuff last year. I almost had sex with a Greek man and I was covered in his goo. Everything from here on is pretty childish. Everything’s quite innocent.”
The Greek man he’s referring to, of course, is Talbot, of whom he murdered as a retaliation to Russell’s murder of his human parents a thousand years ago.
The fourth season starts on Sunday, June 26th on HBO. WAITING SUCKS! But to tide you over, sink your teeth into the smaller images below and click twice for the larger sizes.
Which cover is your favorite??? Let us know in the comments!
In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, Robert Pattinson discusses his future in the movie industry and says that his Water For Elephants co-star Reese Witherspoon isn’t annoying. Well, if that’s not a bonus, I don’t know what is!
When speaking about his future plans after Twilight is wrapped up, he said, “You can never really predict what an audience wants or how to maintain a career…other than doing what you think is cool. Generally, what I think is cool is what everyone else hates.”
When talking of Reese, he said, “There’s something about her. She’s just this genuinely nice person. I don’t know if she puts an effort into creating a nice aura, but her mood dissipates over the whole set. It was a completely different environment from when she wasn’t there. All the kids and the animals were just drawn to her. It made it incredibly easy to do my part – all my reaction shots are just watching her work brilliantly. She’s really cool and she’s just….never, ever annoying. God, that’s the worst description, isn’t it?”
Was that a dig on his other co-stars? And yes, that was the worst description ever.
Our new Superman: Man Of Steel, Henry Cavill, appears on the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly!
Speaking to the magazine about his latest role, he said, “All I could think was, Oh, God, they’re going to look at me and go, ‘He’s not Superman. Not a chance.’”
He went on to say, “The actor inside me was going, ‘You’re not ready! You’re not ready!’”
Do you think he’s ready to take on the role??? And we still don’t have a Lois Lane, yet! Who should take that part???
