Depp sorry but film back­lash

Daily Express - - DAY& NIGHT -

JOHNNY DEPP feels guilty for all the flak Harry Pot­ter au­thor JK Rowl­ing got for cast­ing him in her new film.

“I felt bad for JK hav­ing to field these feel­ings from peo­ple out there. I felt bad she had to take that,” said the 55-yearold, who will reprise his role as a wizard in the Fan­tas­tic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindel­wald movie, which is re­leased next month.

There was a back­lash af­ter Johnny was un­veiled as one of the stars ow­ing to Am­ber Heard’s al­le­ga­tions of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence when their mar­riage broke down last

“But ul­ti­mately there is real con­tro­versy: the fact re­mains I was falsely ac­cused,” he added. The Pi­rates Of The Caribbean ac­tor also ad­dressed his on­go­ing re­la­tion­ship with Rowl­ing, with whom he worked on 2016 Academy Award-win­ning movie Fan­tas­tic Beasts And Where To Find Them. “JK knows I was falsely ac­cused and that’s why she has sup­ported me. “She doesn’t take things lightly. She would not stand up if she didn’t know the truth.”
