Johnny Depp recently shared with Vanity Fair that his "The Tourist" co-star Angelina Jolie has a very specific sense of humor. He told the magazine that his lovely leading lady in the film, which opens Friday, has what he calls "a wonderfully kind of dark, perverse sense of humor."

Noting that she was very "normal," Depp likened Jolie's personality to that of a certain screen legend's, one that is a fitting choice, given that she's rumored to assume the role of Cleopatra: "I've had the honor and the pleasure and the gift of having known Elizabeth Taylor for a number of years," he says in the magazine. "You sit down with her, she slings hash, she sits there and cusses like a sailor, and she's hilarious. Angie's got the same kind of thing, you know, the same approach."

When MTV News caught up with Depp, we tried to get him to clarify what he meant. He explained, "It can go in many directions. There's a degree of certainly sophomoric kind of humor, but that always leads up to some sort of, unfortunately, some degree of scatological kind of interpretation."

While that didn't really clear up what exactly makes Jolie such a jokester, the actress admitted to MTV News that Depp's claim is valid: "It's true. I will agree."

So, does Depp also have a perverse sense of humor?

"Yes, he does," Jolie revealed, adding that figuring out which of them is more perverse "was a part of the question during the film, but I don't know if it was completely answered. That's a whole other interview."

Check out everything we've got on "The Tourist."
