The loud divorce of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard did not increase their popularity. In the media, it is a failure for both of them. The couple has been in one of Hollywood’s most famous breakups for over 5 years, and the marriage did not even last two years.
They began dating in 2011 and got married in 2015. As early as May 2016, Heard filed for divorce, accusing her spouse of physical and psychological abuse. Thanks to the divorce settlement, the actress got $ 7 million, but in return she pledged not to accuse Depp of domestic violence against her in the future.
Johnny Depp won a court battle with his wife. It went about $ 7 million that evaporated somewhere!
However, this did not happen. In 2018, the actress published a letter in the Washington Post in which she introduced her ex-husband as a brutal tyrant.
The Sun magazine called Johnny Depp a “muggler.” In response, the actor sued both the journalist behind the text and the publisher of the newspaper for defamation. A British court, however, disagreed with the actor and in November 2020 concluded that the newspaper had not made a mistake and the allegations were “essentially true”, as 12 of the 14 allegations of domestic violence corresponded to reality. In March of this year, Depp’s appeal was lifted.

This is the end of Johnny Depp’s career? After the court verdict, he had to resign from the role
In 2020, at the request of the Warner Bros. Depp left the Fantastic Beasts movie series. In 2021, new problems appeared on the horizon – his latest film has not been premiered in the United States for over half a year. Is it the actor’s fault?
The movie “Minamata” premiered in February, but American viewers were still unable to see it as MGM has still not set a US release date.
Johnny Depp has not given interviews since the court verdict in November last year, but now he has decided to speak up and start fighting for his film.
As he explained in The Sunday Times, he feels that this is an important film and the fact that it is boycotted by the industry for personal reasons should not prevent the film from being shown in cinemas.
“Minamata” tells the story of a war photographer who travels through Japan. The film tells the dramatic story of people from the town of Minamata, who became poisoned with mercury as a result of industrial pollution.
A metallic taste in the mouth – is there anything to worry about?
On the other side of the ocean
While the American film community has excluded the actor from the cream of society, Depp is showered with awards in Europe.

Next month, it is to receive the most important award at the San Sebastian Film Festival. Despite loud criticism from Spanish women’s film organizations who decided to boycott the festival, San Sebastian Film Festival officials said they were not backing down on their decision because Depp was not convicted of any kind of violence against women.
Not only the Spanish festival stands behind the actor, Johnny Depp will be honored at the festival in the Czech Republic.
