Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie only work together for the first time in the 2010 movie, The Tourist. Since then, they have been plagued with romance rumors, as Brad Pitt’s ex-wife revealed she has a big crush on Amber Heard’s former husband.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are both Hollywood A-list stars. However, despite being two of the industry’s biggest names, they didn’t formally know each other until they made The Tourist.
Jolie’s obsession with Goth stuff
When Jolie was young, she was fond of death and knives. In the book Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography, it revealed, via CheatSheet, she started collecting knives at a young age.
She also became so obsessed with death that she dreamt of becoming a funeral director.
As she loved everything gothic, she became obsessed with the 1990 Tim Burton film, Edward Scissorhands.
She also developed a massive crush on its lead actor, Depp. From here, she also became an avid fan of the 56-year-old actor’s other Goth movies.
“At the same time, Angie dressed like a punk and identified with outsiders like the hero of Edward Scissorhands,” the book read. “The cult movie released in December 1990 that was a must-see for every Goth worth her black mascara.”
At the time, Jolie was so smitten with Depp for playing the role of Edward.
“The movie’s themes of alienation and self-discovery spoke to the angst-ridden Angie,” the book continued.
Jolie even confirmed to The Japan Times she had a crush on him in Edward Scissorhands.
Depp, Jolie’s working time together
Meanwhile, in the premiere of Jolie and Depp’s movie, the 45-year-old actress revealed it was their first time to meet in the film’s set.
“We just got put together in the film and we both like each other’s movies but had never met,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “And we met and we talked about kids for the first hour and France for the second and had a good laugh.”
Jolie confessed they both enjoyed working with each other and hoped it would come across.
On the other hand, Depp gave a tip to Jolie about France, where he used to live with his ex-wife, Vanessa Paradis.
“[Drink] lots of good wine!” he joked.
Talking about the film, Jolie said she hoped The Tourist would be a pleasure for everyone at the time.
“I hope it’s one of those movies that has a little bit of everything, that doesn’t take itself so seriously,” she said. “[It] has a good time, and has a bit of romance and a bit of mystery, and a lot of fun, and a lot of different characters.”
