Johnny Depp likes wearing "skirts".

The actor portrays the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's new movie 'Alice in Wonderland' with a Scottish accent, and says he particularly enjoyed one scene where he got to wear a kilt, the national dress of Scotland.

He said: "The Scottish accent was something I did mess around with on 'Finding Neverland'. That was a bit more Aberdeen, and Tim Burton and I talked about the Hatter being made up of different people and going to extremes… go dark and dangerous with the Scottish accent. I hope I arrived there. And I like wearing skirts too!"

The 46-year-old star - who last year was named the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine for the second time - is also unsure why he is still considered a teen idol.

He added to BANG Showbiz: "Clearly someone's Photoshop is working really well if people are buying posters of me.

"I just keep doing a bunch of movies. I never really thought about whether they were teen movies or not. You always feel that you cross some sort of boundary that allows a film to be enjoyed by kids from the age of five to the age of 85."
