Channing approves of Depp's wish to play her

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 (Jul09) 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."
