Co-starring Helena Bonham Carter, Mia Wasikowska, Crispin Glover, and Anne Hathaway.
There’s one person, in particular, who is the main ingredient for the Hatter and if I said who it was they’d probably be upset. It’s someone I came into contact with and was fascinated by the way this person spoke. And I knew then, when I met the person, that I was going to sponge off them as much as I could, and use them one day as a character. And I did.
