The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor receives support from his former co-star in ‘Dark Shadows’ amid his legal battle with the ‘Aquaman’ actress, who allegedly defamed him in her 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post.
AceShowbiz –Johnny Depp has received support from Eva Green amid Amber Heard defamation trial. According to his former co-star in “Dark Shadows“, the actor’s life “will be better than ever” at the end of his legal battle with his ex-wife.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” actor is suing his ex-wife for $50 million for defamation over her 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post, in which she spoke about being a victim of domestic abuse. Meanwhile, the “Aquaman” star has countersued for $100 million and their explosive court case has been taking place in Virginia over the last few weeks.
While Amber has alleged during her testimony that she was beaten and threatened by her husband and accused him of abusing drugs and alcohol during their volatile marriage, Johnny’s “Dark Shadows” co-star is standing by her friend. Sharing a photo of her and the 58-year-old actor promoting their 2012 movie on Instagram, Eva wrote, “I have no doubt Johnny will emerge with his good name and wonderful heart revealed to the world, and life will be better than it ever was for him and his family.”
The “Black Mass” actor has denied Amber’s allegations of abusive behavior and recently declared in court he has lost “nothing less than everything” as a result of the claims. Asked what he has lost following the publication of his former spouse’s essay, he said, “Nothing less than everything.”
“When the allegations were made [and] rapidly circling the globe, telling people I was a drunken cocaine-fueled menace who beat women, suddenly in my 50s, it’s over. You’re done,” Johnny said. “So what did it do to me? What effect did it have on me? I put it to you this way, no matter the outcome of this trial, the second the allegations were made against me, the accusations, the second that more and more metastasized and turned into fodder for the media, once that happened, I lost then.”
And the “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” actor thinks the allegations will follow him forever. He added, “That is to say, I lost because that is not a thing that anyone is just going to put on your back for a short period of time. I will live with that for the rest of my life because of the allegations and because it was such a high profile case.”
“So I lost then, no matter the outcome of this trial,” Johnny stressed. “I’ll carry that for the rest of my days. It never had to be that way. It never had to happen, and I don’t quite understand why it did in the way that it did.”
