The actress met the Pirates of the Caribbean star on the set of Fear and Loathing in 1997. She is 10 years his senior. And the two started dating, which was later labeled as “casual” by Depp. Previously, Ellen Barkin has called the actor violent. She said, “there was always an air of violence around him…there was just this world of violence…He is a yeller. He is verbally abusive.”

She also accused him of throwing a bottle of wine at her but said that he never physically hurt her. But the claims could’ve been false. Though Johnny Depp stated that the reason behind Barkin’s such claims was him not reciprocating her feelings in the relationship. Also, she did not like the way the actor ended things with her.
