Channing Approves Of Depp's Wish To Play Her

22 July 2009 6:36 PM, PDT | From wenn.com | See recent WENN news

Musical legend Carol Channing has given her blessing to Johnny Depp's gender-bending plans to portray her in a film.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star regularly changes his appearance for films, and even dressed as a woman in 1994's comedy Ed Wood.

Earlier this month he revealed his "dream role" would be to play 88-year-old Channing because "she's amazing".

And the legendary singer/actress has given her approval - because she'd love to see how he would interpret her on the big screen.

She says, "It is not a new concept to me. Not at all. Men have been imitating me for as long as I can remember. In fact, most of the impersonations I have seen have had a five o'clock shadow.

"I imagine, when or if Johnny should portray me, he will succeed. Because a true artist, such as himself, is one who loves his or her creation and therefore represents their honest view of that which they are creating. I think he is a gifted performer and I would be very proud, as well as interested in seeing what his vision of me would be."
