Penélope Cruz’s description of Johnny Depp goes viral as his fans get #AmberHeardIsAPsychopath trending online.
Depp launched a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard in 2019 after the Aquaman star described herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 article she penned in The Washington Post. Heard never mentioned Depp by name but the actor argued that the article she wrote tarnished his reputation and ultimately his acting career. The trial began Monday 11 April in Fairfax, Virginia.
Cruz was one of the first Hollywood stars to defend the actor. The 48-year-old actress described Depp as “one of the most generous people” she knew who was “always kind to everyone around.”
The Spanish actress’ kinds words have since gone viral amidst the defamation trial between Depp and Heard, causing fans to share the now viral hashtag #AmberHeardIsAPsychopath.
Cruz has worked with Depp on many films, including Blow, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Murder on the Orient Express.
‘I’ve always been impressed by his kindness, his brilliant mind, his talent, and his peculiar sense of humour.’
‘I’ve seen Johnny in so many situations and he is always kind to everyone around. He is one of the most generous people I know.’
‘During six months of my first pregnancy, I spent every single day with him while we shot Pirates of the Caribbean,’
‘My husband [actor Javier Bardem] and I will never forget the sweetness, protection, and kindness he treated me with during every single step of that process.’
‘We love him very much and I feel lucky to have someone so special in our lives.’
Depp has accused his ex-wife of abuse, including claims that she severed his fingertip off with a glass bottle.
