Los Angeles: Actress Krysten Ritter is a huge fan of director Tim Burton but she made sure her admiration does not affect her work while working with him for their upcoming film 'Big Eyes'.

The 33-year-old actress said her admiration for Burton started at a young age and she liked how his films were about an outcast or someone different, reported Us magazine.

"It's really exciting to be in a Tim Burton movie... I'm kinda overwhelmed by it all. I think he likes a certain aesthetic. I also just gravitate towards his stories and movies, and I watched them as a little kid, because he was always making movies about an outcast or somebody that was different," she said.

Ritter recalled she even dressed up as Michael Keaton's devious ghost Beetlejuice, from Burton's 1988 cult classic, for Halloween as a child.

"When I was growing up in my house we were very into Halloween, and Warner Brothers had this catalogue with just really, really intricately designed, accurate masks. I was Bugs Bunny, and then I was Beetlejuice," she said.
