Dark Shadows: Chloe Grace Moretz, Johnny Depp & Michelle Pfeiffer


Ellen: Chloe Grace Moretz

What’s better than two stars of The Avengers? Ellen DeGeneres is betting the answer is three stars of Dark Shadows.

Joining Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer on Ellen’s set today was their young, rising co-star, Chloe Grace Moretz, whom you might have seen in Kick-Ass or (500) Days Of Summer.

Ellen: Johnny Depp Fear Of Dancing

The ladies were happy to dance their way onto the stage, but Johnny Depp has never danced and said he’s totally afraid to do it in real life.

“Doing a film, when it’s choreographed and you’re a character, it’s all right,” he said. “But in life, I’d rather swallow a bag of hair.”


That’s an oddly specific statement, and I am surprised Ellen didn’t have a bag of hair on hand. It’s the kind of thing she’d do, though maybe not to someone as reclusive as Johnny Depp.

Her co-stars, and Ellen’s audience, who screened Dark Shadows before the Ellen taping, seemed to approve of Chloe’s turn in the new movie. At just 15, she’s gotten to work with Joseph Gordon Levitt and now Johnny Depp. Her friends are impressed.

Chloe said she felt embarrassed when she first met him, because she was wearing sweatpants and all she could think to say was a compliment about his necklaces.

Chloe was a fan of Michelle’s from roles such as Catwoman, but Michelle Pfeiffer revealed that she “foolishly didn’t keep” the iconic suit from that role, though she did save the whip.

Ellen and Johnny both claimed that they have the real suit, but despite Ellen’s Photoshop skills, I think they are both lying.

Chloe said she hasn’t yet caught up to Johnny Depp in terms of tattoos. But Michelle admitted that she doesn’t have any either. It’s got to be a lot of work every day for makeup artists to cover up his tattoos.

Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Chloe are just three of the stars in the new movie Dark Shadows, opening in theaters Friday May 11 2012.
