Afterward, guests filed into the museum’s second-floor atrium for a seated dinner where DeVito received a special birthday cake (he’s 65) and Depp gamely signed autographs for the swooning women in attendance.

“One woman came up to me and said, ‘You have to introduce me to Johnny Depp. My two fantasies are Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp and one of them is dead,’” laughed Kravis.

As dinner wound down, many headed to the third floor to check out MoMA’s exhibit, which includes 700 drawings and objects from Burton’s vast archives.

Even the filmmaker’s paramour and longtime muse Bonham Carter seemed overwhelmed by her partner’s boundless creativity.

“It’s an honor to be so featured in Tim’s imagination. I don’t put any energy into being a muse,” she said. “Cooking and feeding him — that’s a different thing.”
