The WandaVision star has come forward to show his support for Johnny Depp amidst the entire Johnny Depp Amber Heard fiasco. Bettany has even gone so far as to show his vocal support for the Pirates of the Caribbean actor while Amber Heard’s attorneys do their best to character assassinate Depp.

The WandaVision star recently testified in court in Johnny Depp’s favor. He helped refute some claims regarding some expletive text messages between the two actors, where the subject of discussion was Amber Heard’s “corpse.” Bettany had tweeted this about Depp before the trial:

“Known Johnny Depp for years and through several relationships. He’s the sweetest, kindest, gentlest man that I’ve ever known. Just saying.”

Team Amber Heard: Amanda de Cadenet

A famous British talk show host, Amanda de Cadenet is not actively involved in the trial. But she did show her show of support and solidarity by retweeting several message posts on Frida and Saturday.

The British celebrity has been a vocal online supporter of Amber Heard from day one of the entire scandal. After allegations of domestic abuse in the Depp-Heard marriage first surfaced, de Cadenet shared a picture of her, model turned actor Amber Valletta, and Heard during Cadenet’s May 23 birthday party.

Team Johnny Depp: Javier Bardem

Oscar winning actor Javier Bardem has made quite a name for himself in Hollywood. From No Country For Old Men to Skyfall, he has had quite a distinguished film career. Bardem stood by Johnny Depp when Heard threw heinous allegations his way. Here are his exact words:

“I love Johnny because he is a good human being, trapped in the lies and manipulations of toxic beings and yet smiling and loving us all in spite of it. How? Through his music, through his acting, through his silence. This means a lot. Thank you, Johnny. Millions of others like me love you deeply.”

Team Amber Heard: James Franco

The Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy actor is amongst a list of potential witnesses in favor of Heard’s side for the trial. If summoned, he is liable to appear via video link. Amber Heard and James Franco go way back. There were rumors that Heard cheated on Depp with Franco, all the while her marriage was supposedly going strong.

It is now in the grapevine that Depp gets visibly upset when James Franco is mentioned. The very mention of Franco’s name would cause violent fights between Heard and Depp in the past.

Team Johnny Depp: Sia

But she, like the rest of us, heard those infamous tape recordings that were presented to court in a previous trial and that helped her decide. Here is what she tweeted on the issue:

“Just showing my public support for Johnny Depp. I mean, I’d love him to get clean and stop with the jewelry, but he is clearly the victim after hearing those tapes.”
