Amber Heard Is Being Blacklisted By Hollywood, Brian Cox Says He ‘Feels Sorry’ For Her Because She ‘Got The Rough End Of It’ In Johnny Depp Trial

Published

Brian Cox has said he “feels sorry” for Amber Heard in regards to her highly publicised defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp.

The actor, who plays Logan Roy on Succession, spoke about the former couple briefly in a new interview.

Asked about Depp, who Cox said he regrets once calling “overrated”, the star told The Times that “the public love him”.

Responding to the interviewer’s suggestion that the jury for the trial also love Depp, Cox replied: “Well, they did.”

He continued: “I feel sorry for the woman [Heard]. I think she got the rough end of it.”

Earlier this year, Depp won his high-profile defamation case against ex-wife Heard.

Depp sued Heard for $50m (£39.8m) over a Washington Post op-ed titled: “I spoke up against sexual violence – and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change.”

The article does not mention Depp by name, yet his lawyers said it falsely implies he physically and sexually abused Heard while they were together.

Heard countersued for $100m (£80.9m), accusing Depp of orchestrating a “smear campaign” against her and describing his lawsuit as a continuation of “abuse and harassment”.

In June, a jury found that Heard defamed Depp on all three counts and awarded him $10m (£8m) in compensatory damages and $5m (£4m) in punitive damages. Heard was awarded $2m (£1.6m) in compensatory damages, but no punitive damages.

During the trial, Heard testified about the death threats she and her baby were receiving from fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean star.

In her emotional testimony, Heard told jurors: “People want to kill me, and they tell me so every day. People want to kill my baby in the microwave, and they tell me that.”

Cox was in attendance at the Emmy awards ceremony on Monday night (12 September).

Hotly-tipped Emmys favourite Succession had a good night, winning Outstanding Drama Series at the very end of the night as well as a writing award for creator Jesse Armstrong and a supporting actor award for Matthew Macfadyen.

“Big week for successions,” Armstrong said on stage. “New King in the UK, this for us. Evidently a little bit more voting for us than Prince Charles. I’m not saying we’re more legitimate in our position than he is, we’ll leave that to other people…”

When Johnny Depp was in love with ‘beautiful and brilliant ’ Amber Heard: “ I am a lucky man”

Published

By

Johnny Depp, who recently won a blockbuster defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard, once talked very fondly of her and called himself’ a lucky man’ to have her in his life.

The couple were married for two years. In 2016, Amber filed for divorce and secured a temporary restraining order against Johnny. However, the two were recently involved in a high-profile defamation trial.

During their six-weeks trial that ended on June 1, the couple accused each other of abusive behaviour in their marriage.

The Pirates of The Caribbean star, 59, emerged victorious in his $50m defamation case against Heard after three days of deliberations by a jury, which also handed Heard a partial win in her countersuit.

Following this, an old interview of Johnny has resurfaced over the internet as he says good words for Heard.

In 2015, during Amber’s film The Danish Girl’s premiere, Johnny told Eonline, “We connect on a lot of levels but the first things that really got me was she’s an aficionado of the blues. I would play a song, some old obscure blues song, and she knew what it was. She’s very very literate. She’s a voracious reader as I have been, so we connected on that as well and she’s kind of brilliant and beautiful. I am a lucky man.”

Lily-Rose Depp net worth: What is the fortune of Johnny Depp’s daughter?

Published

By

Born on May 27, 1999, Lily-Rose Depp is a very normal little girl… except that her parents are international stars: Johnny Deppand Vanessa Paradis. Lily-Rose is followed by her little brother, Jack John Christopher, on April 9th 2002. Their parents are married since June 1998, and symbolize the glamour of the Hollywood couple.

The interpreter of Jack Sparrow in Pirate of the Caribbean and the singer of Joe the Taxi do everything to preserve their children of the flashes of the celebrity. They grow up far from the cameras, between France and the United States.

During her childhood, Lily-Rose Deppshows a certain affinity with music: according to her mother, it is she who would have sung the first notes of the song New Year (released on the album Love Songs in 2013): “My daughter, who was 6 years old at the time, began to hum something sublime. That melody has stuck, along with the first sentence of the text, just as she sang it at 6 years old.” Lily-Rose is therefore credited on the album! In 2012, her parents separated and their divorce was highly publicized.

If one could imagine a career in music, it is towards the cinema that the teenager turns. In the summer of 2014, at the age of 15, she made an appearance in the film Tusk by Kevin Smith. An extra that everyone defines as her first film role.

Dreams of the big screen become a reality in 2016 with the release in September of The Dancer by Stephanie Di Giusto, starring Gaspard Ulliel, Soko and Melanie Thierry, among others. The film is presented a few months earlier in the selection Un certain regard at the Cannes Film Festival. The general public discovered Lily-Rose Depp. The same year, we find the actress on the poster of Planetarium, by Rebecca Zlotowski, where she shares the poster with Natalie Portman.

In 2018, she plays in Les Fauves by Vincent Mariette with Laurent Lafitte and in L’Homme fidèle by Louis Garrel with Laetitia Casta. In 2019, Lily-Rose Deppplays Queen Catherine of Valois in The King by David Michôd, a historical fiction produced by Netflix. She rubs shoulders with the French-American actor Timothée Chalamet, with whom she has been in a relationship since 2018.

In February 2019, Lily-Rose Depp paid a poignant tribute to the artistic director of the house of Chanel, the German couturier Karl Lagerfeld, who had just passed away at the age of 85. “Karl, we love you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are eternal,” wrote in particular the one who became a Chanel muse from the age of sixteen.

What Is Lily-Rose Depp’s Net Worth?

In her short but important career, Lily-Rose has accumulated a fortune of 2 million dollars. She has won several awards such as the Los Angeles Film Award, the Cesar Award, the Lumieres Award, the Romy Schneider Award and the CinEuphoria Award.

In the past, Lily-Rose has suffered from anorexia, and in 2016, she confided in “French Elle” about her followers on social networks who commented on her weight, stating, “It hurts me a lot and makes me depressed, because I spent a lot of energy fighting the disease.” She added, “I have been battling an eating disorder for a long time and I am very proud of the results I have achieved.”

Quentin Tarantino Pushed Back on Studio Head’s Request to Cast Johnny Depp Over Tim Roth in Pulp Fiction

Published

By

Quentin Tarantino revealed that he had to push back against studio demands to have Johnny Depp as first choice for key Pulp Fiction role.

Pulp Fiction is one of those movies that seems to have the perfect cast in just the right roles. However, a recent viral post has suggested that the actors who made up the iconic ensemble could have been different, and one role, in particular, had director Quentin Tarantino at odds with the head of the studio. The list of potential actors who could have been in line to take on some of the roles in the action movie included Johnny Depp, who was second on Tarantino’s “wish list” for the Tim Roth role of Pumpkin. However, the director was adamant that Roth was who he wanted, even if that went against how the studio saw it.

While appearing on the 2 Bears, 1 Cavepodcast, Tarantino responded to the viral post, which showed the actors he potentially wanted to play key roles, including Vincent and Lance. While the compiled list shows Tarantino’s options and overall preference, the director explained that it was not simply a “wish list” of who he wanted in the movie. He said:

“On the internet there’s a thing floating around about my wish list of the cast of Pulp Fiction, it’s kind of floating around and it’s not. It’s not that, not really. I didn’t know exactly who I wanted to play this part or that part, so I wrote a giant list with a ton of names. I wanted to get them all pre-approved sure and I didn’t know if it’s gonna work out, if I would like vibe with the person or if they would even do a good job but I wanted to get them approved…It’s kind of all over the place but that was kind of the idea, I wanted to be able to explore it and go all over the place but then I’m also really very opinionated.

How Did Johnny Depp Not Get A Role In Pulp Fiction?

As part of Tarantino’s list of possible stars, Johnny Depp appeared as his third choice for Pumpkin and was also a possible inclusion for the role of Lance, which eventually went to Eric Stoltz. When Tarantino put forward his list, it seemed that the head of the studio wanted to know why they would be offering the role of Pumpkin to Roth over Depp. Tarantino also noted that they told him that they would not offer the role to Roth until three others had turned the role down. In response, the director asked them:

‘Do you think Johnny Depp playing the role of Pumpkin in this movie, which is the opening scene and the closing scene that’s it, do you think that will add that much to the box office?’”

As it turns out, they didn’t believe it would add anything in terms of box office success. Still, as Tarantino concluded, many studios at the time thought having a big-name star on board would help if the movie ended up being a critical failure. But, of course, we all know that even without Johnny Depp bookending the film, Pulp Fiction managed to do just fine.
