Johnny Depp & 'Black Mass' Director Scott Cooper Praise Each Other in 'GQ'

Johnny Depp & 'Black Mass' Director Scott Cooper Praise Each Other in 'GQ'

Johnny Depp poses in GQ magazine’s latest issue with his Black Mass director Scott Cooper.

In the interview, the 52-year-old actor and 45-year-old director praise each other for their work on the film.

Johnny calls Scott a “collaborative genius,” while Scott praises Johnny as a “national treasure.”

“Nobody has the range that Johnny has,” Scott continued. “To create Ed Wood and also be in Dead Man and Edward Scissorhands and The Libertine and Sweeney Todd. To play Jack Sparrow and John Dillinger, Hunter S. Thompson and Joe Pistone [in Donnie Brasco] and George Jung [in Blow]. And yet, for all his parts, I was mesmerized to see him turn from the man he is—gentle-natured, soulful, sweet—to Jimmy Bulger. Whitey is always in control. If you stood 18 inches away, Jimmy was going to make that 12. And Johnny captured him.”
