It looks like Johnny Depp, 59, is back as the face of the Dior Sauvage fragrance he’s been representing since 2015. However, the brand never abandoned the actor, and even during his litigation with Amber Heard, he did not remove photos and videos with Depp from his website, preferring to simply remain silent during the trial. So they have been friends for a long time, and, according to TMZ insiders, they are preparing a new advertising campaign, the shooting of which has already started in Paris.
It is known that the deal was concluded recently: the famous fashion photographer Greg Williams and Dior representatives supported Johnny at one of his joint rock concerts with guitarist Jeff Beck in London. The photographer published several black-and-white photos taken backstage of the concert, and the same scent got into the frame. Apparently, the Dior bosses are grateful to Johnny for the fact that his image brought huge revenue to the brand (during the trial with Heard, Depp’s fans swept perfume from store shelves simply as a sign of solidarity with the actor), therefore, according to sources, they did not regret the fee several tens of millions of dollars.
Note that the history of the debate between Johnny and Amber is not over. On July 21, 36-year-old Amber Heard filed an appeal with a Virginia court demanding a review of the jury’s decision, which had previously unanimously found her guilty of defamation of her ex-husband. In turn, Depp filed a return appeal on the same day. And recently, court documents that have accumulated during the trials have been made public, and they are full of intimate details of the actors’ married life. Particularly shocking was Amber’s statement that Johnny Depp suffers from erectile dysfunction. The actress believes that the attacks of aggression and violence, which she spoke about from the very beginning, were associated with her ex-husband precisely with this.
Despite everything, Johnny Depp’s career is on the rise. Not so long ago, he delighted fans with the announcement of the upcoming studio album, and now he has begun to build a career in art. At the end of July, Johnny’s work was exhibited at the renowned Castle Fine Art Gallery in London, marking his debut as a professional artist. There are also relentless rumors about the actor’s return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, for which he is allegedly offered an eight-figure sum, but so far it seems unlikely.
