Johnny Depp smiled and waved to fans as he arrived in France to promote his new film.
Depp looked dapper in a blue-grey suit Sunday at the 45th Deauville American Film Festival in Deauville, France, during a photocall for his upcoming movie, “Waiting for the Barbarians.”
Depp clasped his hands in front of himself and flashed a smile while keeping cool behind a pair of blue-tinted sunglasses.
Fans were going wild for the 56-year-old movie star, as his role in “Waiting for the Barbarians” has been getting rave reviews.
The film is based on a 1980 novel by South African-born writer J. M. Coetzee, centered around a magistrate in a small colonial town.
Depp plays the role of Colonel Joll, who stars alongside Robert Pattinson as villains in the story.
The film premiered on September 6 at the Venice Film Festival.
Depp also walked the red carpet during the premiere, and was photographed alongside producers Monika Bacardi and Andrea Iervolino at Sala Grande.
While Depp handles his professional life on foreign soil, his legal team has been hard at work on the domestic front in the ongoing battle with ex-wife, Amber Heard.
As we reported, Heard recently went to court and requested certain details of her ongoing lawsuit to be kept private, out of fear she will be “demonized” over information that may be made public.
Depp’s legal team fired back, making it clear that his entire defense is based upon details, which he describes as “objective facts.”
The fight between the former couple is extremely personal, and Depp’s legal team most recently accused Heard of, “falsely accusing Mr. Depp of abuse in an apparent effort to promote her acting career and masquerade as an ‘abuse survivor’ while damaging the reputation of her former husband.”
