In a defamation case he brought against his ex-wife Amber Heard, who wrote about surviving domestic violence, Johnny Depp is testifying.
The first installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which launched actor Johnny Depp to international fame, has never been seen by the actor, according to Depp. The 58-year-old was speaking during his $50 million defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard when he discussed his early days as an actress.
In 2003’s Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Depp portrayed Captain Jack Sparrow. In the sequels Dead Man’s Chest, At World’s End, On Stranger Tides, and Dead Men Tell No Tales, he played the same character again.
“I missed it,” I said. But it appears that the movie fared fairly well. And they desired to continue and produce more. And I was okay to do that, he declared today in court.
Depp continued by describing how his life was affected by the release of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
“The topic was pirates. All of it changed. It simply became strange. People would attempt to scale the gates to view Captain Jack Sparrow. There are those attempting to breach the gates while dressed like Captain Jack Sparrow. Or follow you, your family, or both,” the actor stated.
Depp continued, “I got into acting by accident.” I had no intention of becoming an actress. But the outrageous sum of money that these folks intended to pay me… It was worth $12,800 weekly. In my entire life, I had never seen that kind of dough.
To “reveal the truth about his relationship” with his ex-wife, the actor accuses Heard of slander. Heard, 35, has also filed a 100 million dollar libel lawsuit against Depp.
The basis for Depp’s action is an opinion piece Heard wrote about being a domestic abuse survivor for the Washington Post in December 2018.
Although Depp was not specifically addressed in the piece, his attorneys informed reporters that it was obvious that Heard was alluding to the leading man of Hollywood.
Depp has denied all of the charges and charged Heard with damaging his career by making up violent crime allegations. Meanwhile, Heard claims in her lawsuit that Depp defamed her by labeling her a liar.
