At Cannes Film Festival, Johnny Depp says 'I have no further need for Hollywood
Cannes, May 17 (PTI) Appearing at the Cannes Film Festival the day after premiering his first film in three years, Johnny Depp said Wednesday that he has “no further need” for Hollywood.
Depp made a rare public appearance to face questions from the press following the opening-night premiere of “Jeanne du Barry,” in which Depp plays King Louis XV. The film, directed by and starring Maiwann, is Depp's first film since a jury last year largely sided with him in his legal battle with his ex-wife, Amber Heard.
Part of Depp's argument in that 2022 defamation trial was that he had lost work due to Heard's allegations. Heard was ordered to pay Depp USD 10 million in damages, vindicating his allegations that Heard lied about Depp abusing her before and during their brief marriage.
