“One of the sweetest, funniest human beings you can possibly imagine”–Paul Bettany talks about Johnny Depp

In an interview with Kara Warner at Comic Con, Paul Bettany offered his reaction to shooting “a little indie movie” in Venice last spring — “The Tourist, with two unknown actors called Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie,” Bettany joked. “I think it was the first Paul Bettany movie they had ever been in and they were a little nervous.” And what was it like to work on the film? “I sort of fell massively in love with Johnny Depp,” said Bettany, “who’s just one of the sweetest, funniest human beings you can possibly imagine. [. . .] It’s so nice when you meet one of those people who make that much cash, that you kind of go, ‘I’m really glad it happened to you.’ It’s awesome.”
