The PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN star claims his eccentric persona made him unpopular in Hollywood, but his film-making friends made sure he broke through into the mainstream.
He says, "John went out on a limb for me with Cry-Baby and Tim's risk was quite a bit higher, and that's something I will never forget. He has fought long and hard to get me in, and won.
"Because of that there's a bond and a love and respect that will be there forever and the other side is that he happens to be one of the most interesting film-makers."13/07/2005 05:25
