Must List 2005: ''Tim Burton's Corpse Bride''
We spotlight two of the characters from the animated flick
Names Victor, Corpse Bride
Ages 19, ”forever 21”
Mustworthiness For marrying two of the year’s biggest stories — oddball celebrity pairings (exhibit A: Tom and Katie; exhibit B: Kenny and Renée) and missing wedding participants (”You can’t blame me for Jennifer Wilbanks,” maintains Ms. Bride) — in one package. On the eve of his nuptials, Victor goes MIA and ends up married to his unintended (the titular bride) — one of those Hollywood women who’s all skin and bones. We tracked down the press-shy pair in her hometown of the Land of the Dead. On
Those Eating-Disorder Rumors Bride: ”I’m just lucky, I guess. I don’t have to watch what I eat. Although I do have a hard time keeping my skin soft and supple. Thank God for formaldehyde!”
On That Uncanny Johnny Depp Resemblance Victor: ”I get that a lot, but I don’t think he could do my accent. Besides, I’m not that animated. Did you see Pirates of the Caribbean?”
Next Bride opens Sept. 23.
