Johnny Depp is a versatile and talented actor known for his captivating performances in films such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands, and Finding Neverland. With his distinctive style and ability to embody a wide range of characters, Depp has solidified his status as a beloved and iconic figure in Hollywood. The actor is sweeping headlines once again, but not for any of his films.
The actor was recently spotted in Manchester, England, sporting a medical boot and relying on crutches for mobility. Photographed leaving his hotel, Depp appeared in black pants, a checkered shirt, and a khaki jacket, with the boot securely fastened to his left leg. His right hand supported his weight as he leaned on the crutch for assistance. This sighting comes weeks after Depp reportedly fractured his ankle.
Johnny Depp’s Hairline Crack Turned Into Fracture
With the aid of crutches and a medical boot, the 60-year-old actor made his way to the tour bus for Hollywood Vampires. The renowned supergroup, which includes Depp as a member, has scheduled performances in Scarborough, Swansea, and London.
Five weeks ago, Johnny Depp took to Instagram to share the unfortunate news of his injury. In the announcement, he expressed his disappointment that the band, Hollywood Vampires, had to cancel several tour dates in Europe due to his injury.
“My dear friends, I am sorry to say that I have fractured my ankle, which is a drag,” he said. “It began as a hairline break but somewhere between Cannes and The Albert Hall, it got worse rather than better. Several medical professionals have strongly suggested I avoid any and all activity for the moment and so am sadly unable to travel at the time.”
Following a temporary hiatus, the band consisting of Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, Tommy Henriksen, and Joe Perry, triumphantly returned to the stage on June 8. During their comeback, they also announced their charitable initiative by pledging to donate the proceeds from their upcoming show in Istanbul on June 10 to the Disasters Emergency Committee.
Johnny Depp Injured Himself While Promoting His Film
Johnny sustained the ankle injury while he was in France, actively promoting his latest film, Jeanne du Barry. The film delves into the intriguing tale of King Louis XV and his controversial love interest, Jeanne. In the movie, Johnny portrays the tumultuous king, while talented French actress Maiwenn Le Besco not only stars as Jeanne but also helms the directorial duties.
After a three-year hiatus from feature films, Johnny Depp returns to the big screen with Jeanne du Barry. The movie marks his first project since his high-profile legal battle against ex-wife Amber Heard, which concluded with a jury awarding him over $10 million in a defamation case.
