'Into The Woods' Star Lilla Crawford: Johnny Depp Was My Father Figure

"Into The Woods" star Lilla Crawford has recently revealed "Black Mass" and "Yoga Hosers" actor Johnny Depp acted her father figure on the set of Disney's first theatrical adaptation of a Broadway musical.

"Johnny has two children, and he would always talk about them and seemed like such a great dad," Crawford told Page Six at the Libertine fashion show.

"He was so fatherly to me," the young actress said of the 51-year-old father of two.

"They accidentally dumped a bucket of leaves on my head and all the makeup and hair team came rushing over to me. But Johnny Depp was like, 'I got this,' and he started picking the leaves out of my hair one by one," Crawford added.

On the other hand, Depp told Contact Music, "'I love kids. I have two, and they're perfect. Man, I'd make 100. But I've got the easy gig, right?"

Currently engaged to actress and model Amber Heard, Depp has two children 15-year-old Lily-Rose, who plays a debut role in "Yoga Hosers," and 12-year-old Jack from his previous relationship with Vanessa Paradis.

Also joining the "Into The Woods" ensemble cast are Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, Mackenzie Mauzy and Billy Magnussen.

Based on James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award-winning Broadway musical of the same title, "Into The Woods" is set to be released on Dec. 25.

Crawford's role Red Riding Hood in the musical was reportedly offered originally to Sophia Grace Brownlee.

At 13, Crawford has already performed with Broadway stars such as Lea Salonga and Norm Lewis.

Meanwhile, Crawford was recently spotted at The Salon at Lincoln Center in New York City to attend the Erin Fetherston Fashion Show as part of the Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015, Just Jared Jr. reported.

Joining her in the front row were "The Hunger Games" actress Willow Shields, "Sharknado" star Cassie Scerbo and "Graceland" star Serinda Swan.
