Johnny Depp doesn't care to see himself on the screen or television.
Depp doesn't even know how wacky he will look on the big screen in his latest film... because he doesn't watch his movies.
Depp told Terri Seymour of Extra that he hasn't seen "Alice in Wonderland" yet (it opens March 5), and he has only seen one movie he and director Tim Burton ever did together... "Edward Scissorhands."
"It's not just Tim's movies, you know, I prefer not to watch myself," says Depp.
When asked what his kids thought of his crazy Mad Hatter look, the actor says, "They stared at me for a minute and a half, like 'Oh my god, it's you!' They were a little freaked out initially, but they liked the Mad Hatter."
And what about this new "Alice in Wonderland" dance craze "The Futterwack?" Burton explains Depp injured himself on set, doing the funky moves, inspired by Lewis Carroll's text.
"The doctor said he can't Futterwack for three months. And I only Futterwack in the privacy of my own home. You know, like a singer or dancer. I do it privately." Depp chimes in, "I'm itching to Futterwack. Just don't have it in me today."
Depp was also once again tagged "Sexiest Man Alive" by People magazine. "Oh, boy. One is never really ready for something like that, especially ripe as I am," sighs Depp, to which Burton adds, "Have they seen the 'Mad Hatter' yet?"
Burton also shared with the Los Angeles Times that the White Queen was modeled in part after celebrity UK chef Nigella Lawson and some of the inspiration for the Red Queen was the loathed lated billionaire hotelier Leona Helmsley.
To Depp's fans, the sexiest Mad Hatter alive comes early March, except in England where the British Odeon chain nearly boycotted running it.
