Dark Shadows Costume Designer Colleen Atwood On Working With Johnny Depp, Eva Green And Chloe Moretz
Grazia Daily: You’ve worked on so many amazing movies together, is there any particular favourite memories you have from them at all?
Colleen: Just a general over-memory of Jonny and who he is and watching him have his family and his children, and what joy he’s had with them, and how I feel a bit like a proud mother – I’m very thrilled for the life that he’s had.
Grazia Daily: You get to work with actors very closely, and get to know them beyond their celebrity persona – would you say that there is anyone who is not like how they’re portrayed in the media?
Colleen: Probably just about everyone is not like how they’re portrayed in the media, because the media is an interpretation of who that personality is. And I think when you work with people and you collaborate with them you see who they are in their heart. And you see them on all their days and coping with the media for big stars is a very difficult thing. It’s not easy to have someone taking your picture when you’re going to the grocery store – it’d be the last thing I’d want. And after a while you just put on a face for it and get through the day – but I have a huge sympathy for people who are in the public eye so much. The need for privacy is huge in the human soul I think.
