Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors. I know “The Nightmare Before Christmas” by heart and left the theater with goosebumps after seeing his twisted remake of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Not to mention that I admire his constantly casting Johnny Depp! Which is why I could not contain my excitement upon seeing the new promotional photos for Burton’s upcoming rendition of “Alice in Wonderland.” It’s just like Burton to take a children’s fairytale and warp it, and by the looks of these pictures, we’re in for one dark fall down the rabbit hole. In this creepily surrealist version, Alice lands back in Wonderland 10 years after her first visit, but she has absolutely no recollection of being there the first time around. Oh, and did I mention that this movie will be shown in 3-D and that you can explore the CGI scenery thanks to this cool USA Today gadget?
Sadly, the movie won’t be out until March 5 of 2010. So to tide you over, here are our favorite of the publicity images. Keep reading »
The new issue of Vanity Fair comes out today, and it’s graced by Johnny Depp’s tousled hair and Mona Lisa smile. The interview took place in paradise on Johnny’s private Caribbean island. In between sipping daiquiris and plunging into the deep blue, writer Douglas Brinkley pieced together an oddly revealing portrait of the mysterious hunksicle. After the jump, the juiciest bits on Johnny. Keep reading »
Holy hotness—Johnny Depp is on the cover of Vanity Fair that’s coming out tomorrow. And this dude really can’t get enough of the Caribbean. After filming three movies there, in 2004, he decided to buy his own private island in the Bahamas. Depp and his family bask in the sun on Little Hall’s Pond Cay Island, which has six beaches. Three are named after members of Johnny’s family, another is called “Brando,” and yet another is “Gonzo” after his idol and friend, Hunter S. Thompson. Johnny likes to keep things in the family. His 156-foot yacht is dubbed Vajoliroja—a word made-up of syllables of his family’s names.
Interestingly, many celebs own private islands. I guess they need somewhere paparazzi-free to escape from all the parties, premieres, and their own fabulousness? Here are a few celebs that sunbathe in solitude.

Terry Gilliam is an out there director—he’s the one behind “12 Monkeys” and “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” His newest flick, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” premiered at Cannes on Friday. Heath Ledger was originally the star, and filming was about halfway done when…well, you know. Gilliam decided to rework the role so that Heath shares it with Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law. Hello, hot back-ups!
“Imaginarium” involves a deal with a devil, which allows people to go through a magical mirror and explore their imaginations. Uh, strange? Obviously, we wish it could have been Heath the whole way through, but we figured we’d take a look at the three megastars who filled in at the last minute. And while it’s tempting to just throw all three of these guys in the “shag” column and walk away, here’s how we’d divide ‘em up… Keep reading »

They may need to change Hollywood to Holly Woods after the man-beasts of Tinseltown showed some serious scruff at last night’s Golden Globes. From lumberjack-like beards to “Johnny Be Good” side burns, I bet there was more hair on hunky faces than bush on starlets’ va-jay-jays. And some of the whiskers were seriously sexy! Here are our facial hair highlights from the Golden Globes. Keep reading »
