Johnny Depp will emerge from trial ‘with his wonderful heart revealed to world', Eva Green says
The pair starred together in 2012 film Dark Shadows
Eva Green has voiced her support for Johnny Depp as his multi-million dollar defamation trial against Amber Heard continues.
The French actress, who starred in Bond film Casino Royale and appeared alongside Depp in 2012's Dark Shadows, took to Instagram to give her backing to the 58-year-old.
“I have no doubt Johnny will emerge with his good name and wonderful heart revealed to the world, and life will be better than it ever was for him and his family ,” she wrote in the caption.
Since she uploaded the post, with also featured a picture of her and Depp, it has racked up just under 200,000 likes.
Green isn't the first star to have publicly voiced their support for Depp throughout his bitter and protracted legal battle with his ex-wife.
Back in March 2020, his Pirates of the Caribbean co-star Penelope Cruz described him as "one of the most generous people I know."
Depp is currently suing his former wife Heard for defamation over an op-ed she wrote in 2018 in which she discussed the subject of domestic abuse.
Depp and his lawyers argue that the Washington Post piece falsely implies that Heard was physically and sexually abused by Depp while they were married from 2015 to 2017. He is seeking $50m in damages.
Heard is in turn suing her former husband, accusing him of orchestrating a "smear campaign" against her and labelling his lawsuit as a continuation of "abuse and harassment."
She has asked for immunity from Depp's complaint, and $100m in damages.
The court is now in its fifth week of hearing the case with closing arguments set to take place on May 27. It will then be up to the jury to decide the outcome.
