Johnny Depp Shifts Into Making Art, Shares ‘Never Fear Truth’ Design

Published

on

While primarily known to the world at large as an actor, Johnny Depp has never hidden his artistic aspirations in other fields. However, on top of being a musician, the former Pirates of the Caribbean star has also nurtured another passion, which he’s now returned to. Unveiling a campaign he calls Never Fear Truth, Mr. Depp has shifted to the world of art through a special series of portraits.

Naturally, there’s a bit of a double meaning behind this new project that Johnny’s been focused on. Part of this new venture is the sale of NFTs from this exploration into the world of painting; which is probably what helped inspire the branding. However, as he’s made the rounds talking about the debut of this new venture, through Instagram posts and various interviews, Mr. Depp revealed this deeper meaning to the cleverly named series:

For many years I limited myself away from any painting or showing any paintings. Because the idea of making it or succeeding, having success in one field and then using that to instigate some other thing altogether, I was afraid of that. I had far too much respect for art to try and put myself into that world just because people know me as an actor. I didn’t like that, It didn’t sit well with me.

Painting portraits of friends and collaborators like Tim Burton and Hunter S. Thompson, as well as art inspired by his children, Johnny Depp hopes to create an online artistic community. At the same time, he’s intending to support the UK based Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, as well as Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, through the sales of these exclusive pieces; which only compliments his patronage of such institutions through costumed appearances as Captain Jack Sparrow. The community part seems to be off to a great start, as there are reports that the official Discord server for Never Fear Truth crashed the entire platform upon opening to the public.

It all circles back to the introductory purpose behind this new collection: Johnny Depp’s fear of displaying his paintings. As noted above, the fame of past roles like Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was something that he didn’t want to use to boost his artwork’s notoriety. As he’s now got time on his hands at the moment, this new project feels like a potential future career shift for Depp. Continuing to explain the rationale behind Never Fear Truth, this is the statement that seems to signal as much:

So basically after so many years of limiting myself, not allowing myself to show anything that I’ve painted, although I’ve painted for many years and always stuck with it. I think now is a really good time to embrace the fear or whatever and show it. So to kick things off I’ve decided to release a series of NFT portraits of dear friends that matter to me a great deal. They will be released under the title of ‘Never Fear Truth.’

It’s not exactly an announcement of retiring from acting, as Johnny Depp is already lined up for his first movie role since last year’s Miniamata. What this could mean is that we’ll see less of Mr. Depp at the movies, as he forges his path in the art world. If a project as irresistible as that potential reunion with Tim Burton comes along, he’ll probably jump at the chance. For the time being, he seems to be keeping busy with this rekindled excitement about creating painted art.

If you’re one of the many fans that miss Johnny Depp’s work in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, you can catch those films among the many other Disney+ movies available on that particular platform.

Jenna Ortega’s Biggest Regret? Wednesday Scene Fans Can’t Stop Talking About

Published

Despite the ultimate fan love she received for the viral Wednesday dance, the actress seems to think she could have done better.

Quickly becoming one of Netflix‘s biggest hits ever, Wednesday is marching through Twitter threads, TikTok videos, and Instagram reels and garnering views and likes months after the premiere. All of this thanks to the show’s most popular scene — the Wednesday dance to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck at the school disco at Nevermore.

However, speaking with Entertainment Tonightat the Golden Globes ceremony, the show’s main star Jenna Ortega revealed that she isn’t fully satisfied with the final result.

“There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me,” the actress said, commenting on the Wednesday dance’s viral popularity.

Ortega choreographed the dance herself, somehow managing to combine improvisation and old goth moves. Besides, she also revealed that she had to film the scene while having coronavirus — something that the actress and the production were heavily criticized for.

Still, despite Ortega’s apparent regrets, the dance scene is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Netflix’s Wednesday. This all started with a TikTok edit that popularized the dance, but with a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga‘s Bloody Mary instead of the original soundtrack.

Now, Netflix has greenlit Wednesday for a second season — and even used Bloody Mary to promote the upcoming sequel, apparently nodding to the viral song choice. The premiere date for Wednesday season 2 is yet to be announced.

Does Jenna Ortega have a boyfriend?

As far as we know, Ortega isn’t dating anyone at the moment. However, fans have speculated that Ortega and Hyne White could be an item because she invited him as her date for the Golden Globes. However, anything is confirmed and they can just be friends.

On the other hand, per Netflix Life, J-14 magazine reported that Ortega left the Globes after-party with ‘The Fabelmans’ star Gabriel LaBelle. Certainly, that doesn’t mean anything either but it’s another rumor that is around.

Also, as we said before, Ortega has always been private about her love life. In the past, she has been linked with actor Asher Angel and singer Jacob Sartorius. But, per Capital FM, Ortega denied that she dated any of the guys she has been linked to online during a podcast appearance in 2019.

Per the source, when asked what the craziest thing she ever heard about herself was, she said: “Probably relationships. According to the internet, I dated like six guys, [but I] dated none of them.”
