Are audiences ready for the return of Johnny Depp?

The controversial actor is playing his first lead role in three years in “Jeanne du Barry," which opened Cannes Film Festival Tuesday. The movie, which stars Depp as King Louis XV and French actress Maïwenn as the king's mistress, reportedly received a seven-minute standing ovation, and festival attendees are talking about the film's tense news conference Wednesday, to which Depp arrived late.

The star's comeback is taking place nearly a year after Depp's explosive defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard garnered widespread interest. After both Depp and Heard accused each other of physical and verbal abuse, a civil jury awarded $10 million in damages to Depp and $2 million to Heard − a win for Depp, and a partial win for Heard.

  1. The world is heading into a depression due to the economic destruction of the pandemic, I am very happy that even with the current situation I am still making $17,400 on my original $3,000 shares. Getting into stocks would be the best way to recover from this global inflation and stay afloat.

    1. I don’t know who needs to hear this! Stop depending on the government and savings. Absolutely, crypto investing is a safer way to make more money now because they have made as much as $352,000 recently

    2. Same here, I will praise Wallace over and over again because he has great skills, I started with $6000 and after 2 weeks I got a return of $26,000 and then continued with him since he has been delivering.

    3. Profits can be made anytime in the market wether bearish or bullish, with the right signal and strategy it’s all good.

    4. I have heard so much about Mrs Lizzy,she is my crypto account manager,and her signals are simply the best.congrates mate

    5. Great advice on crypto and passive platforms. Tells it like it is, honest opinion. Buying crypto does not always ensure profits for you, in that case the market price determines your profit, people need to stock

  2. As a Canadian living in Paris and in the crazy Fashion/Celebrity Biz for more years than I can count I wish to say that, Mr Depp has more integrity in his pinky than most of the “being famous for being well known” disgusting examples of the Hollyweird “press…” The Hollyweird press looking for juicy salacious soundbites makes me want to vomit. Johnnys direct pointing at the insignificant plebian miscreants chomping down on a Big Mac or their mashed potatoes in front of their computer screens bashing people they do not know was perfect. Useless, pedestrian, plebian human wastage with the I.Q of a newt pontificating all of the usual predictable crap we have all come to know and detest! Johnny Depp at his best!!! Hear, Hear! I am personally so proud of you! 💥

  3. As JD said, he was only 45 minutes away .. he didn’t need to make a comeback because he never left. Hollywood found him guilty until proven innocent, so yeah, who needs Hollywood?
