Actress Kathy Baker says critics have been describing her performance in the new movie "Edward Scissorhands" as "funny" and she couldn't be happier.
"This is my first screen comedy. Until now there was this attitude in Hollywood that Kathy Baker can't do comedy," she said.
In "Scissorhands," Johnny Depp plays a creature built by Vincent Price with blades instead of fingers. Baker's predatory suburban housewife fails to seduce him, then claims he attacked her.
Before "Scissorhands," moviegoers saw her in such darker films as "Jacknife" with Robert De Niro, "Clean and Sober" with Michael Keaton and "Dad" with Ted Danson and Jack Lemmon.
