Eva Green showed support to Johnny Depp on social media amid his defamation trial against Amber Heard. Green and Depp starred together in Tim Burton's 2012 fantasy horror comedy Dark Shadows, an adaptation of the television soap opera of the same name.
Depp is suing Heard for defamation for US$50mil after she alluded to their alleged abusive relationship in an op-ed written for The Washington Post.
"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," Green wrote on Instagram. The post was accompanied by a photo of her with Depp on a red carpet for Dark Shadows.
Green is one of several actors who have publicly voiced support for Depp during the trial, which has been taking place in Virginia since April 11.
Comedian Bill Burr came forward on his podcast to support Depp and urge the actor's haters to apologise if Heard ends up losing the defamation case.
Burr said, "From what I've seen, the guy is f****** destroying. And what's great about this, is if he really does expose this woman for lying. I'm wondering if all these people that, you know, just accepted her lies about him, if they're going to apologise somehow."
Burr noted that people have "publicly trashed" Depp and said "it'd be nice if they publicly apologised and said, 'Maybe next time we won't jump to conclusions.'"
Chris Rock also made pro-Johnny Depp jokes while performing a comedy routine in London earlier this month. The comedian grilled Heard for allegedly defecating on Depp's bed pillows, an anecdote that has been referenced several times during the trial.
"Believe all women, believe all women, except Amber Heard. What the **** is she on?" Rock said about Heard. "She s*** in his bed! She's fine, but she's not s***ing fine. She s*** in his bed! Once you s*** in someone's bed, you just guilty of everything. What the f*** is going on there? Wow. And they had a relationship after that."
The Depp-Heard trial is expected to continue through Memorial Day weekend. – Reuters
