Actor Johnny Depp enjoyed wearing women's clothing during the filming of Ed Wood, in which he played a real life, cross-dressing movie director.

According to, in his upcoming biography The Secret World of Johnny Depp author Nigel Goodall says that Depp, like Wood, liked angora sweaters when he was young.

Goodall quotes Depp as saying, "I love angora sweaters. Oh man, they're unbelievable. They really feel good. This girl I dated when I was a teenager, she had an angora sweater. When we broke up, I was upset, but not about her. It was the sweater."

Depp's love for angora sweaters peaked when Burton asked him to play Wood and began walking around as a woman to get into character. Burton was concerned initially but Depp did a great job and pulled it off.
