Johnny Depp Talks Going From Hollywood Pariah To Playing The King Of France

Johnny Depp Talks Going From Hollywood Pariah To Playing The King Of FranceJohnny Depp is slowly rebuilding his life following the whole overblown Amber Heard defamation case. Once one of Hollywood’s most sought-after stars, he’s since been blacklisted following ex Amber Heard‘s claims he sexually and physically abused her during their relationship.

As a result of this, Depp lost his roles in “Fantastic Beasts” and “Pirates of the Caribbean,” along with some others. While he’s not where he used to be career-wise, he’s grateful for having been giving a shot in Maïwen’s ‘Jeanne Du Barry.’

Johnny Depp -Says It Was “Perversely Lucky” To Play “the King of France”

Johnny Depp’s French-language movie is finally coming to the UK months after it premiered in France.

At the UK premiere of the movie, Depp stepped onstage alongside the film’s co-star and director Maïwenn and shared a few words about the movie.

“I feel very lucky to have been [offered the role] – strangely, oddly, perversely lucky,” he said on stage at the Curzon theater in Mayfair. “Because when Maïwenn and I first actually met and talked about the notion of me doing the film and playing Louis XV, the King of France — see that’s when instantly what happens in your brain is you instantly go back to Kentucky, where, like, everything is fried. So you realise that you’ve come from the bellybutton of nowhere and suddenly you end up playing the King of France.”

Why Johnny Depp Tried To Talk Maïwen Out Of Casting Him

Depp’s reputation took a massive hit following the whole “wife beater” incidence, and while he went on tour with Jeff Beck right after the whole court circus, he wasn’t sure returning to film so soon was the right call.

“It made no sense to me, I tried to talk her out of it,” he continued. “But she wasn’t hearing it and she had great courage to take me into her cast. Whatever we did, whatever we experienced I think and I hope you’ll find it was well worth the agony of this kid trying to make a film for that length of time.”

Maïwen also took the stage and talked about the reason she wanted to make the movie since 2016. According to her, she was “obsessed by Jeanne for many years because she was a feminist before everybody else.”
