Depp sorry but film backlash
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.”
