Johnny Depp had been stuck in between the turmoil of legal disputes and ostracization from the Hollywood industry for the better part of this year and last, which finally came to an end after the defamation lawsuit’s verdict was given in his favor. And with the victory in the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s favor, it has become a monumental win for his supporters, and it was all thanks to the various friends and acquaintances from the industry and beyond that helped Depp achieve this victory.
Among the names, one of them happened to be of Harry Potter star Helena Bonham Carter, one of the few stars that were rooting for his win.
After the initial case that was put in court, Bonham Carter’s old tweets started going around the internet, where she appeared to be shocked by the allegations that Amber Heard made against Johnny Depp.
Helena Bonham Carter’s Support For Johnny Depp
During the tough times when Johnny Depp was accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife, Amber Heard, it seemed like the whole world had turned against him all of a sudden. He was being fired from movie projects, ostracized by the industry, and blasted by the public for his claimed acts of violence against his wife, all of which seemed that just came out of the blue. But even in those times, Depp had a couple of people that supported him through it.
One of those few happened to be none other than Helena Bonham Carter, his co-star who had worked with him a number of times in the past. She felt that she was not hearing about the same Johnny Depp that she knew and had shared the screen with when she heard the allegations that were made against him. In an interview with The Guardian, Bonham Carter stated:
“There’s something quite old-fashioned about Johnny, with these manners – none of it makes sense. But the man’s not stupid. He wouldn’t have gone to this length if he thought he was in the wrong”.
This statement was more than enough of a confirmation from a colleague to make Depp supporters believe in the Pirates of the Caribbean star. And after a long and arduous legal battle, the rightful came into the light.
Helena Bonham Carter’s Relation With Johnny Depp
To say Helena Bonham Carter knows Johnny Depp very well would be putting it mildly. These two actors have been working on so many blockbusters together that it feels like the casting director just needs an excuse to put them together in a project. from being together in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and Alice In Wonderland, the two of them have been with each other that it seems like favoritism when it comes to her support, but it also means that she knows what kind of a person Depp is more than the most.
