Debuting His Latest Movie
Johnny Depp has found happiness again after debuting his latest movie a year after his defamation trial against Amber Heard. Last week, the actor’s French-language film Jeanne du Barry opened the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, where Depp signed autographs and posed for selfies with applauding fans, later speaking about his movie “comeback” at a press conference afterward.
Doing Fantastic Now
A source tells PEOPLE that Depp, 59, “is doing fantastic” now, one year removed from the controversial Virginia trial with ex-wife Heard. “Johnny is doing fantastic. He really enjoys working and touring again. He has managed to turn his life around,” says the source of Depp, who will next direct the movie Modi after touring with his band The Hollywood Vampires. “He is prioritizing his health and work.”
Not Feeling Boycotted by Hollywood
At the Cannes press conference, Depp was asked whether he feels boycotted by Hollywood after his highly publicized legal battles. “Do I feel boycotted now? No, not at all,” he said. “But I don’t feel boycotted by Hollywood because I don’t think about it. I don’t think about Hollywood. I don’t have much further need for Hollywood myself.”
Busy with Film and Music
Depp has been keeping busy since his defamation trial against Heard. In addition to filming “La Favorite,” he has also been performing multiple music shows in Europe with Jeff Beck. Depp joined Beck on his 29-date US tour and the pair released an album called “18” in July. Depp is currently dating Joelle Rich, one of the defense attorneys who represented him in his failed 2018 libel lawsuit against the Sun.
