Johnny Depp cried at the Cannes Film Festival because of the audience's reaction to his first role in a long time
Hollywood movie star Johnny Depp was moved to tears during the applause for his role as Louis XV in "Jeanne du Barry," which lasted about 7 minutes. It's no secret that the loud applause at the Cannes Film Festival is one of the symbolic awards for film crews, so the longer they are, the more successful they consider the film.
For the performer of the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, the premiere of "Jeanne du Barry" was a landmark, because it is his first role after his high-profile divorce from actress Amber Heard in late 2016. OBOZREVATEL decided to tell how the opening of the Cannes Film Festival went for Johnny Depp (to see the photo, scroll to the end of the page).
The screening of the film starring Johnny Depp opened the film event. After watching the film, the audience burst into applause, which did not stop for about 7 minutes.
The emotional actor wiped away his tears, gestured to the audience and then hugged the French actress Maivennes, who also starred in the film, who accompanied him. The film will be seen on the big screens in 2023, but the exact date has not yet been announced.
Recall, Amber Heard filed for divorce after 15 months of marriage to Depp in 2017 and accused the actor of systematic domestic violence. As a result of the court hearings, the woman received a warrant prohibiting the man from coming within 100 meters of her. Depp's own lawyers called all the accusations against him "nonsense.
Despite the fact that the actor's guilt was not proven, the scandal greatly affected his career. After The Sun wrote that the actor had beaten up Amber Heard, movie companies turned their backs on him. Thus, Warner Bros. refused to cooperate with the star in the project "Fantastic Beasts", and Netflix removed all the films with his participation.
As OBOZREVATEL wrote, in 2022 Johnny Depp won a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard and won $15 million in compensation.
