He was greeted with thunderous applause from the audience.
The overwhelming reception from the audience left the actor astonished. Renowned Hollywood star Johnny Depp had a memorable moment at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, where he received an extraordinary seven-minute ovation.
Depp attended the Cannes event to attend the premiere of the film “Jeanne Dubarry,” in which he portrayed the French King Louis XV. This marked his first appearance at such a significant event since his highly publicized and scandalous divorce from actress Amber Heard, who had accused him of domestic violence three years ago.
As Depp rose to his feet, he was met with loud applause from the audience, which continued uninterrupted for a stunning seven minutes. Overwhelmed by their warm reception, Depp couldn’t contain his emotions, and tears welled up in his eyes.
Also present at the premiere was Maïwenn Le Besco, the director of the film, who also played the lead role of Jeanne Dubarry, the favorite companion of Louis XV.
It is worth noting that Johnny Depp’s portrayal of Louis XV in “Jeanne Dubarry” marked his comeback to the screen after the consequences of his scandalous divorce from Amber Heard. After Heard accused Depp of domestic violence, harassment, and infidelity in 2016, the actor faced contract terminations and lost several major roles in Hollywood productions. However, Maïwenn Le Besco remained steadfast in collaborating with Depp, being the only person who continued to work with him.
