While being chauffeured from court where Johnny Depp is fighting his ex-wife Amber Heard in a $50 million defamation case, the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star interacted with a horde of fans with his iconic voice of Captain Jack Sparrow.
Fans greeted Depp and showed their support with cheers and kind words as the leading man addressed his fans through the SUV’s rear seat window.
As one fan yelled, “We love your hair!” Depp waved and flaunted his ponytail for the crowd of admirers.
In which viral clipa supporter is heard exclaiming, “You’ll always be our Captain Jack Sparrow!” to which Depp responded in the drunken and rebellious character’s iconic voice.
“He’s still around somewhere. I see him every now and then. He pops up every now and then,” Depp said in the recognizable voice in the video shared on Twitter.
In 2018, Heard wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post alleging that she was a victim of domestic violence while married to ex-husband Depp.
Depp claims the play led to the actor being disqualified from the Pirates of the Caribbean reboot, though Heard notably never mentioned him by name.
The comment eventually led to Depp filing a defamation lawsuit against Heard for damage to his career following the story’s publication.
The pending lawsuit is currently the subject of a publicly disclosed court battle between the formerly married couple.
