Designer: Johnny Depp a 'Real Gentleman'

Johnny Depp and costume designer Colleen Atwood

Johnny Depp has twice landed the title of Sexiest Man Alive, but to the cast and crew of his films -- he's simply a "real gentleman."

"He's a real gentleman in a modern time where a lot of people aren't. He's a step apart," says Oscar-winning designer Colleen Atwood, who has worked with Depp on everything from "Edward Scissorhands" to "Public Enemies."

"He is a real artist -- he's also very respectful to the people he works with. He's very good to the crew," continues Atwood.

Next up for Depp? He stars as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" (out March 2010). For Atwood, who designed the costumes for the fantasy flick, it's "an amazing chance to do some serious creative work. That's why I love working with Tim."
