Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s legal battle is taking some turns. While the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star has taken the stand to answer questions from Heard’s attorneys, several celebrities have come forward to show their support for the actor.
Winona Ryder, Depp’s “Edward Scissorhands” co-star defended him saying, he is a good person and that she does not believe he is an abuser.
Vanessa Paradis and Depp were together for fourteen years, and share two kids. “He is a generous, attentive, kind and non-violent man. I know the allegations Amber Heard made publicly. This is nothing like the Johnny I know. He was never violent or abusive to me,” she has said, according to media reports.
While Penelope Cruz has said, “I was always impressed by his kindness, his brilliant mind, his talent and his sense of humour. I’ve seen Johnny in different situations and he’s always kind to everyone.”
She also noted that he is one of the most generous people she knows. “I recorded ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ during my pregnancy, my husband and I will never forget their sweetness, protection and kindness in that time,” she added.
Sharon Osbourne also supported the “Black Mass” actor saying, “It takes two for tango. I think they had a vulnerable relationship. Both are bad for each other. She gave what she received. I have no idea who did what, but I know the two of them drank and it was a toxic relationship.”
Renowned actor Javier Bardem has said, “I support Johnny because I always saw him as a kind and caring man. An extraordinary artist who listens to everyone who needs his help. Not only do I love Johnny, but I also respect him deeply and thank him for being that free guy in his art, and the mature, kind man in his daily life. I love Johnny because he’s a good human being, caught up in the lies and manipulations of toxic people.”
Depp has sued Heard for $50 million after she accused him of abuse before and during their roughly two-year marriage.
