Johnny Depp will return to theaters in 2023 with a movie that will officially raise the screen in his movie act. Not only will Jeanne du Barry make her first feature film in three years, but she will begin a new stage in her career after hearing a defamation case against her ex-wife Amber. An act that is far from the big productions, the most famous filmmakers and the most profitable blockbusters that have kept him among the top actors in Hollywood. However, his latest deal makes it clear that he probably doesn’t even need the movie mecca to recoup the millions of dollars he allegedly lost along the way.

Because it turns out that the actor from Scissorhands Young does not live only from the movies, these musicals or his concerts as a guitarist and composer. He also makes millions as a painter. And it happened that Johnny Depp collected pictures called “Friends & Heroes” with pictures of people who inspired him throughout his career. In the first instance there were pictures of Al Pacino, Elizabeth Taylor, Bob Dylan and Keith Richards that, in July 2022, were sold in a matter of hours by a London gallery (Castle Fine Art). 780 copies were sold, bringing in $4 million. nothing more, nothing less. And now, less than a year later, he’s doing it again.

Apparently, his career as a painter is proving to be very lucrative, as he is launching another limited edition series of works starring writer Hunter S. Thompson and actors Heath Ledger and River Phoenix. The collection took about five days, according to the Daily Mail.

Each image is valued at around $5,400 (or £4,500), for a total profit of $5.4m (£4.5m). That is, in the matter of seven months, the actor had generated more than 9 million dollars for the work of the painter. A shameless proverb when we remember the decline experienced at the professional level in recent years and the removal from Hollywood’s radar.

Because, as everyone now knows, Depp asked Amber to be heard in March 2019 in the United States courts, accusing her of defamation due to the editorial she published in the Washington Post in 2018. In the text, the actress spoke about the many women in cases of sexual abuse, describing herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” And while he didn’t mention Depp by name, the actor accused him of being infamous, demeaning and the decline of his career.

As a result, Depp’s agent Jack Wigham testified in court that the actor lost a “$22.5 million verbal agreement” with Disney to release the sixth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean. While accountant Mike Spindler added in another testimony that Depp lost an estimated $40 million in earnings after the article was published (Source: Time).

According to the Daily Mail, Depp is “really touched” by the positive reception of the work he does “outside of his job”, as if to suggest that drawing and painting is a side hobby that brings him huge benefits.

“For many years I really limited myself strictly to the day-to-day work of the film business, although I always had to get away to a blank piece of paper, whether it was writing, drawing or painting a blank canvas; “, he said, now on the basis of “For the first time to see these things, how they act, so positively, to what I did very moving.”

Johnny Depp rode the crest of Hollywood’s waters for two decades with a high eight-figure salary. It was counted from 10 million for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Cursed Pearl Megra (2003) to 90 million, having earned a third and a fifth, or $68 million for Alice in Wonderland (Source: IMDB ). And as he testified in the first defamation trial – filed in London against the editor who publishes The Sun newspaper – he came to amass a fortune of $650 million, explaining that he lost it due to the malice of his predecessor. financial managers. . He also explained that he used HS 100 million to the treasury for 17 years of unpaid taxes in his name.

And while the lost figure was still greater than what he had now sought from his table, he would certainly have found an equal way to add millions to his bank table. There is no need to be wise, or to be expected to be great or important.
