Actor Johnny Depp blasted the news media Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival in France, charging that the majority of what you read is “fiction.”
The actor was asked about his relationship with Hollywood during a press conference for the movie Jeanne du Barry, in which Depp stars as King Louis XV.
Depp blasted the news industry’s coverage of his personal life.
“The majority of what you read is fantastically, horrifically written fiction,” Johnny Depp said said of the media.
“It’s like asking the question: ‘How are you doing?’ But the subtext is, ‘God, I hate you,'” Depp said.
Last year, Depp won his libel lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard, vindicating his assertion that Heard lied in her op-ed that he abused her before and during their marriage.
Notably, the media sided with Heard and her allegations against Depp until the verdict.
Due to the ongoing negative coverage of Heard’s claims, Depp reportedly lost his role in the Fantastic Beasts movies.
Depp n Wednesday blasted cancel culture, asserting he doesn’t think about Hollywood that much anymore.
“I don’t feel boycotted by Hollywood because I don’t think about Hollywood,” he said at Cannes.
