Rome – At the Italian press junket for Bride Wars, we asked Anne Hathaway abour her experience in the world of Tim Burton. She plays the White Queen in Alice in Wonderland (March 2010), a part live-action, part performance-capture movie. She told us about working with such a genious, how she was excited in working with Johnny Depp and her greenscreen experience.
“I play the White Queen – Hathaway said – I filmed this past fall. I worked for two weeks. I had an absolute ball. I was very lucky I had a couple of weeks to create this character. The thing about Tim is that whenever you are working with an auteur like that, your limits for the character are the limits for their imagination and in the case of Tim Burton there are no limits to his imagination. It was wonderful living in a very creative word everyday, it was odd I have never done full greenscreen before: there was a room four times the size of this room, with ceilings they go three times as high and it’s all green. You feel like you live in a kind of ant colony… a very green one. That was strange… but it was just new. I loved working with Johnny Depp . And Mia, the girl who plays Alice – people are gonna love her portrayal, she is a very exciting young actress… I loved it. I just loved playing my character”.
At that point, Kate Hudson said on the mike: “It Sounds like a very psychedelic experience”.
Bride Wars will be released in Italy on the 20th of February.
