Burton Tired Of Dark Reputation

Quirky movie maker TIM BURTON has had enough of his dark image, insisting there's more to him than his gothic side. The EDWARD SCISSORHANDS director's obsession with the afterlife and Frankenstein myths have earned him a black reputation, but he claims it's "obviously not true". He says, "Really, I could come out in a light-blue leisure suit and it still wouldn't change people's take on you. We all have our moments of depression or darkness but it's not like I'm hanging out in a cave."
