From hell, you say. (the Buzz).

JOHNNY DEPP AND HEATHER GRAHAM may uncover startling truths about Jack the Ripper in Albert and Allen Hughes's From Hell, but none so surprising as the twin directors' recent revelation about their gay parentage. "Our mother is a lesbian," Albert recently told Vanity Fair while discussing the brothers' films, which have examined gangsta teens (Menace H Society), embittered Vietnam vets (Dead Presidents), mack daddies (American Pimp), and now Victorian serial killers.

What's the common thread? "Our dad's a pimp," Albert says. "We're interested in the underclass."
