Johnny Depp emotional Cannes 2023 Comeback:
The troubled actor, who hasn’t appeared in public since 2022’s protracted legal battle with ex-girlfriend Amber Heard, received a seven-minute standing ovation at the premiere of the film “Jeanne du Barry” last night, the opening night of the Cannes Film Festival.
Depp broke down in tears as the crowd in the south of France burst into applause for his performance as King Louis XV. He shook hands with onlookers in the balcony and seemed taken aback by the reaction.
The film’s director and star Maiwenn also started crying bitterly as soon as she handled the mic. “I want to share this moment with my lover, with my producer, with Le Pacte,” she said. “This was a production that was difficult to finance … and I want to share this moment with our entire team at the theater.”
Depp arrived in Cannes to be greeted by thousands of supportive fans who carried placards outside the Palais and trembled as they tried to touch their idol. Several people were able to make eye contact with Depp, who worked the fan line outside for a full five minutes before walking the carpet.
Star Cast of Jeanne du Barry:
Maiwenn stars in “Jeanne du Barry” as Jeanne Vubernier, a working-class woman in 18th-century France who rises through the social ranks and becomes the lover of King Louis XV. Her working-class roots make her a social outcast in the king’s court. The supporting cast includes Benjamin Lavernhe, Pierre Richard, Melville Poupaud and Pascal Grégory.
Maiwenn’s latest controversy erupted long before the opening night of Cannes. The film marks Depp’s most high-profile acting role since the conclusion of his 2022 legal battle against ex-wife Amber Heard. Although the jury sided with Depp, the actor remained on the fringes of Hollywood as a result of allegations of misconduct that surfaced during the trial. Festival director Thierry Fremaux spoke to the press before opening night and addressed Depp’s presence in Cannes.
