Johnny Depp speaks about ‘Hollywood’s boycott of’ him amid ‘messy’ split with ex-wife Amber Heard

Johnny Depp said that he’s being boycotted by Hollywood amid ‘an unpleasant and messy situation’ in his split with ex-wife Amber Heard.

The 58-year-old actor spoke with The Sunday Times about his new drama Minamata, which has not yet secured a U.S. release.

The Kentucky-born actor chalked up the professional difficulties to the ‘absurdity of media mathematics’ in the wake of a ‘surreal five years’ following his 2016 split with Heard amid allegations of domestic violence.

The actor, who’s played roles such as Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka and Jack Sparrow, last year lost a libel case against the outlet The Sun over their reporting of the split, labeling him a ‘wife-beater.’

Amid the headlines, MGM has suspended the release of Minamata, which is directed by Andrew Levitas and in which Depp plays the role of photojournalist W Eugene Smith, in his 1970s work in Japan. 

Last month, Levitas wrote a letter to MGM accusing it of ‘burying’ the motion picture as result of Depp’s legal issues, Deadline reported. The movie was acquired by MGL last fall, via its American International Pictures, after its February 2020 debut at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Depp told The Sunday Times: ‘Some films touch people and this affects those in Minamata and people who experience similar things. And for anything … for Hollywood’s boycott of me? One man, one actor in an unpleasant and messy situation, over the last number of years?’

Depp, who was replaced in the Fantastic Beasts anthology last year by Warner Bros., said he was ‘moving towards’ bringing ‘things to light.’

Amid the career crisis in the U.S., Depp is set to be honored by Spain’s San Sebastian film festival next month, and the Czech Republic’s Karlovy Vary International Film Festival later this month.

The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival stated it would ‘recognize and pay tribute to the acclaimed actor’s extensive career and lasting legacy on the film industry globally.’

For the San Sebastian film festival, Depp is set to be given the Donostia Award for his ‘outstanding contributions to the film world.’

That decision came under scrutiny from female filmmakers organizations in Spain.

The country’s Association of Female Filmmakers and Audiovisual Media’s president Cristina Andreu last week told the AP that the decision ‘speaks very badly of the festival and its leadership, and transmits a terrible message to the public: “It doesn’t matter if you are an abuser as long as you are a good actor.”‘

Depp in March was denied an appeal in the Heard case, with a British court saying his efforts had ‘no real prospect of success.’

He also remains in litigation in the states in a $50 million suit against Heard, which has been delayed until next year.
