Johnny Depp’s birthday has been met with a lot of love, as the actor’s name has been trending on social media, with countless birthday wishes coming in from all over the world.
It goes without saying that Depp’s birthday is the best he’s had in a long time. After years of public back-and-forth with ex-wife Amber Heard, in which each former lover accused the other of abuse, Depp was vindicated when a jury ruled in his favor, finding Heard’s allegations “false and defamatory.”
Depp appears to have more support than ever following the verdict. It has given him a resurgence in popularity, as evidenced by the large number of fans who participated in Depp’s online birthday celebration.
#HappyBirthdayJohnnyDepp is also trending on Twitter, with new messages arriving every minute.
Johnny Depp will be back on screen soon
Johnny Depp’s career had slowed significantly during his legal battle with Amber Heard. He claims the allegations cost him the chance to reprise his role as Jack Sparrow in another Pirates of the Caribbean film, though millions of fans are hoping Disney will apologize and persuade him to return.
Depp was also asked to resign from his role in the sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore by Warner Bros., and Depp fans boycotting the film as a result may have contributed to the film’s box office underperformance.
But now that Depp’s name has been cleared in a trial, things are looking up for him. His next big role will be as King Louis XV in a new film, and with Depp’s immense popularity following the trial, Hollywood offers are likely to start pouring in quickly.
Maybe they’ll get their wish for Depp to reprise his role as Jack Sparrow in another film. In any case, Depp will soon return to the big screen, but for the time being, he is celebrating his birthday with the help of his fans all over the world.
