Johnny Depp: ‘Hollywood power players tried to bring me to my knees’ – Film News |




Johnny Depp is still reeling from the media assault on his private life, insisting it hurt to be considered “a violent man”.

In a new British GQ interview, the Pirates of the Caribbean star opens up about the last three years worth of drama, which began with the messy break-up of his marriage to Amber Heard and led to lawsuits from former managers and attorneys and stories about his sanity, health and allegedly dwindling finances.

Keen to set the record straight, the 55-year-old actor tells the magazine the last few years “felt like a perverse situation that was in?icted on me”.

Admitting he’s still smarting from the press attacks, Johnny feels Hollywood’s power players were piling on when it looked like he was heading for a fall from grace.

“Big money was being thrown about,” he tells GQ. “People (were) suing me at every opportunity. I mean, it’s all so obvious. Listen, I know I was never going to be Cinderella – I know this and accept it – but it felt like within a very, very short period of time that suddenly this version… of Cinderella had been immediately turned into the beast. He’s Quasimodo.

“I could feel people look at me differently, because of the accusations towards you (sic). And then people start putting things in magazines: ‘He’s insane!’ ‘He needs to take a sanity test…’ You know, ludicrous stuff.”

Depp stood his ground, adding, “Ultimately, the truth will come out in all of this and I will be standing on the right side of the roaring rapids.

“I hope other people will be too. I know the truth and if I had to walk away from all of it today – the job, the career, all of it – and go toodle-oo (goodbye), then ?ne.”

But it was the allegations he abused his wife that really hit him hard, because he insists he’s not a violent man.

“The thing that hurt me (most) is being presented as something that you’re really as far away from as you could possibly get (sic)… To harm someone you love? As a kind of bully? No, it didn’t (happen). It couldn’t even sound like me.

“Initially, I just kept my mouth shut… I knew it was going to stick on me and it would get weirder. Keep going, you know? Go nuts. I ain’t going to get into a p**sing contest with someone about it. Spit out what you need to spit out and, you know, my attorneys will take care of the rest. I never went out and spoke about the s**t.”

Depp’s full interview with GQ will be available to download on Wednesday (03Oct18).
