After the UK court ruled against Johnny Depp in his libel action against former wife Amber Heard and The Sun, the publication that had called him a “wife-beater,” the actor found himself in a difficult spot with Hollywood moguls.
As of now, the American star has lost out on his role in the Fantastic Beasts movie series as a direct consequence of the verdict, not to mention that even the Mouse House is also keeping its distance at the moment, and considering where things stand, it’s highly unlikely that they’ll ask him back for future installments of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Still, in this messy legal feud that has caused much controversy on the internet, the talented thespian has something his former flame doesn’t; legions of innumerable fans that have continually supported him over the past year.
Currently, those fans are busy praising Dior for their bravery in standing by the actor because of the new Sauvage fragrance ad. The video, titled “Sauvage – Game of Notes,” is basically a chat between Depp and perfumer François Demachy in a dimly lit room. The two creatives talk about their inspirations and at one point in the video, the actor strums his guitar. So, in essence, it’s pretty much everything you’d want to see from an advertisement featuring Johnny Depp.
A lot of fans are now celebrating the incident after many a tough month for their favorite actor, and here are some of the reactions they’ve been sharing on Twitter:
