Johnny Depp was asked questions about his career during a press conference before his Donostia Awards reception at the San Sebastian Film Festival. But in response to a journalist’s social effort to analyze the actor’s thoughts on the so-called “void culture” and how social media can affect the public, Depp did not back down.
Depp called it a “complex situation” because it could be seen as “an event in history that lasted as long as it lasted, whether it was a culture of abandonment or a rush to judge based on the amount of this immediately polluted air …” he sighed. He let out a sigh. “
Asked if he felt safe in such an interconnected world, Depp replied: “Yes, I do,” followed by a series of lies before his own conflict. “The various movements that have come up, I’m sure the best motives …”
Perhaps, he went back a bit in search of the right words, expressing his opinion, saying, “It is now out of hand that I can assure you that no one is safe. None of you. None of you… as long as someone is willing to say a sentence. It only takes one sentence and there is no more ground. The carpet has been pulled. ”
Depp and his ex-wife, actor Amber Hard, are very publicly embroiled in the aftermath of the split. Dempsey is currently suing his ex-wife Hard, when he wrote a 2018 op-ed in the Washington Post about surviving domestic violence. He did not name Depp in the op-ed, but after the divorce in 2016 he accused her of domestic violence.
Earlier, in November 2020, Depp lost a UK defamation lawsuit against the publisher of the UK tabloid The Sun, alleging that he was a “wife watchdog” in a 2018 article. The judge ruled that the words were “true enough.”
In San Sebastian, the actor didn’t just mourn for himself. “It’s not just me,” he hinted, but did not directly mention what happened to him. “It simply came to our notice then. This kind of thing happens to women, men and children who are suffering from all kinds of unpleasant problems and they sadly start to think at a certain time that it is normal.
“I believe that if you are armed with the truth, then this is what you need.” Mentions.
Concluding his reply, he appealed to the assembled media and those watching online, “When something is wrong, whether it is against you or someone you love, or someone you trust, stand up, don’t sit down. Don’t sit on them, they need you.
Another question about Depp’s off-screen issue was raised by a reporter who was immediately reminded that Depp had only come to the press conference to discuss his career and the Donostia award he was receiving in Spain. The question referred to the ongoing protests by a group of Spanish women filmmakers that began on the day of the announcement of Depp’s festival honors.
Given another chance to ask questions about Depp’s career, the journalist declined and the conference moved on.
