New Delhi: 'The Dreamers' actor Eva Green has come out in support of her co-star Johnny Depp amid his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.
Green, who has starred alongside Depp in Tim Burton's 2012 fantasy horror comedy 'Dark Shadows', recently took to her Instagram handle and shared a throwback picture featuring her and Depp. In the post's caption, she wrote, "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 is just one of the several actors who have publicly voiced support for Depp during the trial. The list of supporters includes comedians Bill Burr and Chris Rock among others, as per Variety.
Johnny Depp's ex-agent Tracey Jacobs also made a video-recorded appearance on the 19th day of Depp's defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, whom he alleges ruined her career with false accusations of domestic violence. Jacobs testified that in the past 10 years when portraying him, Depp was often late for filming. She said that he eventually gained a reputation that made it harder to find work. "Initially crews loved him. He was always so great with the crew. But crews don't love sitting around for hours and hours and hours waiting for the star to show up," she said.
Jacobs said she sometimes got yelled at, and she tried to make her client realize he is damaging his own career. In addition, she also noted an increase in the use of alcohol and drugs. "His star had dimmed due to it getting harder to get him jobs. People were talking. The question was out there about his behaviour," Jacobs said.
In his testimony, Jacobs said Depp went to United Talent Agency (UTA) and asked them to give him $20 million. He had a meeting with UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer and President Jim Berkus, at which they refused to do so.
"They said we're not in a position to give our clients that kind of money. We're not a bank," Jacobs testified.
As per the Variety, Depp has sued Heard for USD 50 million in defamation after she alluded to their alleged abusive relationship in an op-ed written for The Washington Post.
