British actress Kate Winslet has taken a veiled swipe at Americans - insisting Johnny Depp is too nice to be one of them.

The curvy beauty, who wed director Sam Mendes in a secret ceremony last month (MAY03), admits she adores Sleepy Hollow actor Depp, who stars in her new film Neverland.

She giggles, "Johnny's a very gifted actor but also a great laugh and f***ing gorgeous.

"I swear to god he can't be American because he's the softest, meekest, gentlest, funniest guy I've ever met. He's just really wonderful."
