How Amber Heard ruined Johnny's Depp life

9 months ago

Johnny Depp has long been a favorite of Hollywood and the idol of the audience. He starred from an early age, played in the films of Tim Burton, Jim Jarmusch, Emir Kusturica, Terry Gilliam, and Roman Polanski, and was nominated three times for an Oscar and a dozen times for a Golden Globe. Already in the 2000s, he played Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean blockbuster series, which made him one of the richest Hollywood actors - the fees for this role reached great values.


Johnny Depp and Amber Heard


He was also a regular gossip column thanks to his relationships with famous actresses and models, including Jennifer Grey, Winona Ryder, and Kate Moss. His long romance with Vanessa Paradis attracted the attention of the press and the public for almost a decade and a half. But in 2012, Johnny Depp broke up with Paradis, began dating actress Amber Heard, and thus signed the verdict on himself and his successful career.


Who is Amber Heard?

She was born on April 22, 1986, when Johnny Depp was already playing his first role; she began her acting career right after school - from the age of 17, she already starred in separate episodes of various TV series, then moved on to feature films. True, the projects with her participation were not the most stellar - for example, the series "Mysteries of Palm Springs," where she had one of the leading roles, was closed in the middle of the first season, and films like "Never Back Down" or "Welcome to Zombieland" only worked on the recognition of the actress.


Her acting fate changed in 2011 after participating in the film The Rum Diary, an adaptation of the novel of the same name by writer and journalist Hunter S. Thompson. It was a production project by Johnny Depp, who played the title role in the film; Heard got the part of Depp's character's lover. This relationship suddenly went off the set. The actress was 23 years younger than Depp, but such an age difference between Hollywood and show business, in general, is considered insignificant.


Here comes Johnny

In principle, little interfered with the relationship between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp. Later it became known that Depp had broken up with Vanessa Paradis for several years already - despite two typical children, they were not married, so the gap went relatively smoothly, although unexpectedly for the couple's fans. However, according to another version, the dates of Depp and his partner in the Rum Diary made Paradis finally decide on their joint future. Hurd took the newly-made bachelor into such a turn that his previous passions should have turned green with envy.


First of all, she put her career in order - it still appeared thrash like "Machete Kills," but there was also "The Danish Girl" by Tom Hooper, which received four Oscar nominations and won one of them (Alicia Vikander became the winner - for the female role of the second plan). And then Amber Heard became a part of the DC Universe in general, playing the superheroine Mera in the Justice League; she would later reprise the role in Aquaman and appear in Zack Snyder's Justice League.


Everything was okay with her on the personal front. Heard and Depp announced their engagement in 2014 and got married in February 2015.


Exile from paradise

The idyll continued, however, for a very, very short time. In May 2016, after a year and three months of marriage, Amber Heard filed for divorce, citing some "irreconcilable differences." She chose the time “suitable” - literally the day before, Depp’s mother died, and he was, to put it mildly, not in the best shape for such news. The divorce proceedings continued for several more months and officially ended in January 2017, unofficially still dragging on.


The fact is that Heard did not limit herself to one streamlined formulation about disagreements. She told the press rather ugly details about Depp's personality, his addiction to drugs and alcohol, and that the famous actor does not shy away from assault; there was even photographic evidence that Depp likes to spread his arms. And later, when the divorce was over, Heard wrote a lengthy column in The Washington Post, in which she called herself a victim of domestic violence and Depp - the culprit that her career almost ended. There was also a publication in the British The Sun where Depp was not called the devil.

Hell for Johnny

In reality, Johnny Depp's relationship with Amber Heard led to not her career-ending but his. In 2017, Potter fans called on Warner Bros to remove the actor from the Fantastic Beasts franchise, in which he played the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald; then it was defended, but not for long. The fact is that simultaneously with the divorce of this couple, the general situation in world show business was unfolding - the careers of producer Harvey Weinstein and Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey were collapsing, the #MeToo movement was gaining strength, and revelations about the antics of former stars followed one after another. Depp got into this wave, and he was on the wrong side.


His trials with The Sun and personally with Amber Heard were not very successful, although there was not too much clear evidence of domestic violence on the part of Depp. On the contrary, a lot said that the actress herself had a bad temper and that, perhaps, the victim was precisely her husband. There were even calls on social networks to cut off Heard's oxygen professionally, such as removing her from all DC films. But it did not work with her, and Johnny Depp, as of 2021, has already been effectively expelled from the cinema. He retired from Fantastic Beasts (in the 3rd part, he will be replaced by Mads Mikkelsen), has no new offers, and the only film with his participation that reached the rental this year is City of Lies, filmed back in 2017- m.



Amber Heard, meanwhile, seems to be doing relatively well. Recently, a series with her participation was released - "Confrontation" by Stephen King; she will soon appear in the second "Aquaman." The ongoing trials with Johnny Depp do not bother her too much - in any case; she is still considered a victim of their relationship, and, most likely, she will remain so.


After five years of litigation, ex-wives Johnny Depp and Amber Heard met in Virginia at the next and, as expected, the final stage of the hearings. Kino-Teatr.Ru decided to restore the chronology of the conflict and highlight the turning points in its history.


Accusations of violence

Against the background of the divorce proceedings in 2016, Heard repeatedly spoke about the domestic violence she allegedly had to endure, which symptomatically led to Depp's "cancellation" and the loss of roles in big-budget blockbusters. Later, after the divorce, Johnny lost a case against the British newspaper The Sun, which called him a "wife-beater," based solely on Heard's allegations. However, after that, the situation between the actors turned in the opposite direction: circumstantial evidence of Depp's innocence began to appear in the media, and the police confirmed that they had not found signs of a crime on Heard's body when she called them to the scene of the alleged offense. According to Depp's lawyer Adam Waldman, the footage from the chest cameras of police officers proves that the actor is innocent and his ex-wife lied.


Trying to justify

In 2018, Amber wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post in which she openly stated that she had experienced domestic violence. Now Depp has filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard to verify and prove the authenticity of the facts that the actress brought against him. On the eve of the court hearing on April 12, Amber backtracked, saying that in her article, she speaks abstractly, not referring to her relationship with Depp.


Hollywood Codependency

On April 19, Depp personally testified against his ex-wife for the first time. The actor began by talking about how his mother abused him as a child. The meeting was attended by a clinical psychologist who was Depp and Heard's family therapist in 2015. She said that both spouses were victims of childhood abuse, so they created a “mutual abuse” situation in the marriage. The court also released photos, videos, audio, and messages regarding the personal lives of Amber and Johnny. From them, it turned out that Depp insulted his ex-wife and expressed the hope that her "rotting corpse was decomposing in the damn trunk of a Honda Civic." The actor admitted that he loves black humor and is ashamed of these messages, but he never allowed himself to be beaten in quarrels with Amber. In addition, he stated that during arguments, Heard constantly threatened to commit suicide: “Many times when I tried to leave, she stopped me at the elevator with guards, cried and shouted:“ I can’t live without you. I will die!" And we had to leave."


Depp also claims that it was Amber who was the aggressor in quarrels. According to him, once the actress got angry because Johnny insisted on signing a marriage contract. Then she launched two bottles of vodka into him, one of which crashed against the wall and cut off the actor's fingertip. He had to be sewn up, but Depp called the cause of the injury an accident in the hospital - he did not want Amber to have problems. After injuring his finger, Johnny, as it turned out in court, left messages for Amber on the walls, written in blood. Heard's lawyer said that Depp then allegedly painted a penis in one of the paintings, but the actor said he did not remember this. He also accused the ex-wife of defecating on his bed.


Amber is caught in a lie

Depp and Heard repeatedly presented photographs of bruises on their faces left due to the alleged beatings, but third parties accused both of aggression. In addition, the actress's lawyer showed the jury a palette of Milani Cosmetics brand correctors, which Hurd was forced to use every day to hide the bruises that Johnny allegedly left her. However, the All In One cosmetic set from Milani, which Heard used, was not released until 2017, when Amber and Johnny had been divorced for a year. The producers confirmed this on their social networks; they published a video convicting the actress of a lie. Now the world press is waiting for Amber's testimony, which is expected to differ from Depp's testimony. Also, the actress's lawyers will invite actor James Franco and businessman Elon Musk to the following meetings, with whom Amber had relationships at different times.

The divorce of Hollywood actor Johnny Depp and actress Amber Heard is overgrown with new scandals and details. Depp's friends, Hollywood stars, are divided into two camps: some defend Johnny, others sympathize with Amber.


Johnny Depp and Amber Heard divorce


In the United States, one of the most high-profile litigations of modern Hollywood continues - the lawsuit of Johnny Depp against Amber Heard in a libel case.


What's happening


In the United States, a trial has begun in the case of former spouses Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The first court hearings collect millions of views on YouTube, and clippings of the best moments become hits on social networks. And it already looks like the most captivating media series of the spring season.


Main characters


Johnny Depp is an actor who we love primarily for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. His career in Hollywood began back in the eighties, since then Depp has managed to star in a large number of cult films: “Edward Scissorhands”, “What's Eating Gilbert Grape” (one of DiCaprio's first notable films), “Fear and Loathing in Las- Vegas" and beyond.


You could see Amber Heard in Aquaman, Pineapple Express, The Danish Girl, and The Rum Diary, where Depp also starred.


Why is this such a big deal


As a rule, celebrities solve such issues behind closed doors - first of all, so as not to make “dirty laundry” public. Here, two movie stars for six weeks will openly discuss the details of their life together live.


Depp and Heard's relationship


They met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009. Three years later, Depp broke up with his wife Vanessa Paradis and started dating Heard. In 2015, the couple got married, but already in May 2016, Hurd filed for divorce and demanded that Depp be banned from approaching her, saying that in marriage he showed emotional and physical abuse while under the influence of alcohol and drugs.


The actress brought a statement to the court with bruises on her face: "He gets turned on quickly. He often suffers from paranoia, and his temperament often frightened me, as he often showed me physical aggression and threatened my life."


The parties came to a settlement agreement, according to which Depp paid Hurd $ 7 million (gave them to charity). The divorce was finalized in early 2017.



The plot took a new turn a year later. Amber Heard wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post titled “I spoke out against sexual assault – and faced an angry culture. This must change.” In it, she describes the experience of difficult relationships, where she experienced different types of violence. Depp's name is not mentioned there, but the actress refers to the time period that coincides with their relationship and divorce. Depp says the column hurt his career - more on that below.


In 2019, Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard for $50 million for defamation and ruined career. A year later, Hurd responded with a counterclaim for 100 million because she faced harassment and attempts by Depp fans to deprive her of big roles and important advertising contracts.


The case reached open court in April 2022.


What's with the cancellation culture?


In fact, Johnny Depp was canceled in Hollywood. After 2018, he did not star in any film by major Hollywood studios. He was fired from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise (acted in five films) and asked to turn down a role in Fantastic Beasts.


If the court sided with Depp, it would surely raise a new wave of discussion about cancellation culture.


What do the parties want?


Depp insists that all allegations of violence are false, and Heard deliberately ruined his career and reputation.


The Amber Heard side is sure that Depp will try to turn the case into a “soap opera”, but it is he who remains the real monster in this story.


"During this process, you will see the real Johnny Depp, who hides behind fame and pirate costumes. I'm sorry that Amber has to go through these moments, but this is the decision of Depp's side. We are not going to stand by and let him drag my client into the mud and do inflated false statements," is a brief retelling of the opening remarks of lawyer Amber Heard.



“Today, the name Johnny Depp is associated with the lie that he committed violence against Amber Heard. You will find out that Ms. Heard is a problematic person who manipulates people around her, including Mr. Depp. Publicly spoken words can have devastating consequences and ruin forever reputation of a person. And when your career depends on reputation, the effect only gets worse, "these are the words of Depp's side.


Depp has testified in court


Depp was questioned in court last week. This was his opening speech: "The truth is the only thing that interests me. Lies lead nowhere, I am obsessed with the truth. I feel responsible not only to myself, but also to my children. I find it disgusting that my children should had to go to school and watch their friends show them the cover of People magazine with Miss Heard with a bruise on her face. All the accusations against me are false, there is not a shred of truth in them.


He later added: “The accusations against me quickly spread around the world. People were told that I was a drunken, cocaine-infused threat to society, which suddenly began to beat women in my 50s. media, I've already lost"


In the course of the jury meeting, they showed a lot of evidence of Depp's problems. Among them is a video where the evil actor aggressively slams the doors in the kitchen in the morning, yells at Heard and pours himself wine; photographs showing alcohol and drugs, as well as a number of messages that Depp wrote to friends. In one of them, he invites actor Paul Bettany (Vision from The Avengers) to “burn Heard” and abuse her after that, and also calls her a “dirty whore”. These messages were written in 2013 at the beginning of their relationship.


Depp did not deny that he wrote these messages, and said that he "regrets the tone chosen in a moment of anger": "Sometimes the pain is treated with humor, sometimes with black humor. I grew up on Monty Python, and I am quite expressive in correspondence."



One of the key moments of this conflict in the media over the past years. On the set of the fifth "Pirates of the Caribbean" something happened - and Johnny Depp lost part of his finger on his hand. There are two versions of what happened: a drunken Depp cut off his own finger and this happened during a conflict with Heard.


Depp's version sounds like this: the quarrel began because of a dispute about a marriage contract. “I locked myself in the bathroom, after which I went down to the bar. I poured myself a few shots of vodka - it was my first alcohol in a long time. Then Miss Heard found me. She started screaming that I was drinking again and called me a "monster". She threw a bottle of vodka at me, which flew past and broke. At first I didn't feel any pain, just heat and a feeling that something was running down my arm. I looked down and realized that the tip of my finger had been chopped off, and I was looking at my bone and a piece of meat on my finger. I don't know what a nervous breakdown feels like, but I've never been this close to it. At that moment, I realized that this is not life, and no one should go through this."


Amber Heard's version will surely be heard during her speech in court.


Depp turned interrogation into stand-up


All the time in court (more than five hours in total), Depp behaved with restraint, periodically answering questions from Amber Heard's lawyers with humor.


On spending time with Marilyn Manson: "Yeah, we used to drink and do cocaine together, maybe a few times. I once gave him a pill just to make him talk less."


Was there cocaine in this box: “No. But it looks like you can put cocaine in it. In my experience, you usually get cocaine in a plastic bag. And if you put it in such a box, there is a high chance of leaving a long trail of cocaine behind you while walking down the street


How feces ended up on Johnny Depp's bed: "I was about to go back to our house, but my security guard said that now is" not the best time for this. "And then he showed me a photo of our bedroom, where human feces could be seen on my side of the bed. It was so wild, it was so grotesque that I could only laugh"



What Depp thinks of this video: “Yes, I attacked a couple of lockers. But I didn’t attack Ms. Heard. Maybe I was drunk. Obviously, it was not the best day. the fact that your fiancee is recording you on video goes well with the rest of the photos and audio she took. What is most interesting is that she tried to hide the camera, smiled and laughed at the end. "


Depp does not deny that his addiction and character created problems


Answering questions from lawyers, Depp admitted that he could behave intemperately. "I've been jealous at times, yes." The court included a recording of the conversation between Depp and Heard, where the actor says: "I become irrational when you act in films. I become jealous, I act strange, we swear a lot more." He accused her of cheating with actors James Franco and Billy Bob Thornton. With the latter, she starred in the film "London Fields". After filming, Depp left an inscription made in paint and blood on the mirror in their house: "Starring: Billy Bob and Available Amber"


In 2014, Depp and Hurd flew to the actor's personal island, where he was undergoing an opioid detox with the help of doctors. Depp did not deny this, but accused Heard of not giving him the necessary medicines when he needed them.


The court was also provided with messages that Depp wrote to Heard's parents. In one of them, Depp tells the mother of the actress: "Without Amber, I would go swimming and swallow a significant part of the ocean" and "Without her, I would not have survived." He later wrote to her father that he had gone "too far" during one of his "physical fights".


But still denies all accusations of violence


This is how he comments on the difficulties in his relationship with Heard: “She needed conflicts and cruelty. They appeared out of nowhere. Even as a child, I realized that the only way out of this situation was to leave. Quarrels could start with anything: a slap, a push, a TV remote or the glass of wine that went to my head. It was a constant part of our relationship."


And this is the answer to the question of whether Depp admits that in 2015 "butted" Heard: "I tried to restrain Ms. Heard. And when I succeeded, we were very close to each other. And when you are at such a distance, your heads may collide, but to say that I headbutted her is an exaggeration."


Important Amber Heard Quotes


The court also heard a recording of the dialogue between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, which took place when they were still in a relationship. In it, Amber Heard discusses the physical conflict with Depp, where she already acted as the aggressor.


"I didn't beat you, but gave you a crack" (You didn't get punched, you got hit" - we open a competition for the best translation). I'm sorry that this happened, but I didn't beat you. I don't know exactly how I moved my arm. But you're fine, I didn't hurt you or hit you, I just slapped you. Grow up, Johnny."


This is a noticeable detail, because the accusations of Heard's side are based, among other things, on the fact that Johnny Depp was the only abuser in their relationship.


Depp's interrogation ended with an audio recording in which Heard says: "So tell the world, Johnny. Say:" I, Johnny Depp, a man, am a victim of domestic violence. "After that, Depp's lawyer asked him how he would answer Amber Heard. Depp's remark : Yes, I am a victim of domestic violence.


What will happen next


Now the court will interrogate other witnesses. Among them are Elon Musk (met with Heard), as well as actors Paul Bettany and James Franco. Amber Heard will also appear before the court.


The meetings are shown live on the Law & Crime Network channel, and highlights of key moments are also posted there later.

Twitter is a micro-blogging social networking site that is popular with a growing user base. In addition to directors Joe and Jane, there are many celebrities on Twitter, from controversial politicians to actors, writers, and comedians. Some Twitter stars will tell you about the things they do and their lives. And the celebrities on this list are also funny.


Top celebrity's posts on Twitter


1. Valentine’s Day


2. Cookie


3. Never apologize


4. Peeing


It's more fun to believe that celebrities are the ones who manage their own Twitter accounts, giving us a complete real-time view of their lives, opinions, and opinions. But much for fun, most celebrities hand over their social media responsibilities to trusted PR reps to tweet on their behalf.


After all, outsourcing social media is probably the easiest way to keep busy celebrities visible to fans and to effectively manage their brand and reputation. Ashton Kutcher, Kanye West, Adam Levine, 50 Cent, and Britney Spears are among the celebrities whose Twitter accounts are managed from the assistants' smartphones.


There is always an exception to this rule. Some celebrities prefer to be their social media managers whether tweeting about other stars, inventing hashtags, cracking a witch's line, or responding to fans.


5. About love


6. Memories


7. Not me


Like a TV star, Khloe Kardashian doesn't fake it when it comes to tweeting. Most of her tweets are about family related, and some photos of her siblings, Kim, Kiley, Kourtney, and Kendall, can be found throughout the feed, as well as clips from the new reality TV show, Kocktails with Khloe.


Khloe's other tweets are mostly selfies of costumes, makeup, hair, promotions for her application, and mentions of personal drama. But no matter what she tweets, one thing is for sure - she gives fans exactly what they want to see: the real Khloe.


You can say for sure that Cher runs her own Twitter account because she uses it as a channel to express her opinions - and we like it.


Most recently, the 69-year-old singer-songwriter voiced her opinion on the 2016 US presidential election, and Donald Trump has been a hot topic of contempt in several tweets.


Cher also tweets occasional family photos, frequently types blocking caps, and uses a lot of emojis to express her thoughts (especially poop emojis when referring to Donald Trump). Cher's Twitter account is a treat to watch for her fans because she is uncensored and genuine and gives us a real insight into her life even when she keeps it in the media.


It is rumored that the retired star, known as Shaq, said: "If I speak, it will come from me." A quote he also applied to his social media accounts.


8. I Love these


9. Perfect


10. Molly


Shaq uses Twitter to communicate directly to fans while resuming and mentioning other celebrities such as Anna Faris and Ellen DeGeneres. He also uploads videos and photos from his NBA career behind the scenes for fans to see. It is doubtful that his 12 million followers are disappointed with what he sees in his Twitter feed.


When it comes to Dean McDermott's Twitter account, it is debatable whether or not all of his tweets are written by the reality TV star himself. While some of his tweets are slightly bland and sound generic (suggesting that a third party is tweeting him), Dean made an authentic appearance on social media before defending his wife, Tori Spelling.


Dean McDermott has also been known to post videos to speak directly to fans and lets fans know when he will be tweeting live. In the latest tweets about his new show, Slasher Series, Dean announced that he will be watching the first episode simultaneously with his fans and will be communicating with (and returning fans) during the show. What do you think it is - Dean is running his own Twitter account?


Kardashian star keeping is no stranger to social media. His followers would probably be worried if a day had passed when an infamous Kim "butt selfie" did not appear in their news. In addition to posting provocative photos, Kim communicates with fans and other celebrities on her Twitter account.


Most recently, Kim received another Twitter allegiance for throwing hot tweets at Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Moretz when they embarrassed her by posting a nude selfie. Many people thought that her husband, Kanye West, had hijacked her Twitter account based on the tone of the insults - but Kim insists that was all.


11. Empire


12. National Pet Day


13. Congrats


Miley Cyrus took to Twitter to call her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, several times or twice. Personal tweets suggest running your Twitter account at least part of the time.


Miley was also known for uploading the egotisms of her smoking weeds, videos talking about her political views, doing yoga, and supporting the LGBT community. The rest of Miley's tweets are mostly about brands, with upcoming concert dates, TV appearances, and make-up approvals. Anyway, Miley has always had our attention for one reason or another (though it's usually something to do with her language), and she seems to keep fans engaged on her Twitter account.


Ellen says her tweets arefundamentall in her Twitter biology, so we'll believe her. After all, her tweets are as hilarious as she is and make for a fun Twitter feed to scroll through.


She posts the best moments of her show, Ellen, and posts photoshopped episodes that receive tens of thousands of retweets. In one of her recent tweets, Ellen changed Jennifer Aniston's face on the cover of People magazine when Jennifer Aniston was named "the most beautiful woman in the world." Ellen also regularly tweets to other celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Seth Rogen, and Kelly Clarkson.


Lena Dunham ran her own Twitter account until she became the center of a conversation that was sparked when she uploaded a semi-nude selfie. After the verbal attack from Twitter users, which the 29-year-old actress called "verbal violence","Lena decided to hand over the responsibility of her Twitter account to someone else and declared it an unsafe space for her.


Although it is a shame that the negativity surrounded her Twitter account, Lena said that she decided not to close her Twitter profile due to the relationship with her fans. Although she says she does not have access to her Twitter account, she still controls what is said in the tweets and has a send assistant.


14. Shout Out


15. Waiting room


16. Plenty of time


Jimmy Fallon usually references Twitter on his show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, so it makes sense that he would be an active user on the social network.


The TV host also invented hashtags, such as #MySiblingIsWeird and #WeddingFail and #IfIWonPowerBall, to spark conversations with fans on Twitter and share the answers to her show.


Jimmy also hires fans by responding directly to their tweets. In one of his recent tweets, a fan asked him to follow three marked friends and Jimmy replied "Sure!". His Twitter feed also shows tweets for other celebrities, such as Russell Crowe, Cameron Diaz and Steve Martin.


Adele has always been responsible for running her own Twitter account, until she admitted to a drunk tweet in an interview.


On the BBC's Graham Norton, she was quoted as saying: "I'm not drinking anymore, but when Twitter first came out, I was tweeting and I almost got my foot in it a few times, so my management decided that you have to go through two people and then it has to be signed by someone ", referring to any tweets or messages that can be posted. However, she took credit for her tweets and added that "they are all my tweet messages. Nobody writes me tweets. They just post them for me."


Adele has made many comebacks in her music career, maybe she will do it with her Twitter account.

Celebrities are the same people, only with money and more opportunities than ordinary citizens. But since nothing human is alien to them, then celebrities can do strange things from time to time. For example, resorting to strange, dangerous, harmful and simply ineffective diets.

Kim Kardashian's weight loss, Adele's diet, and why Joe Rogan only eats meat and fruit

We've rounded up 30 world-famous foreign celebrities who pride themselves on or openly promote their methods of losing weight or staying in shape by restricting or avoiding certain types of foods.

We strongly DO NOT recommend following their experience, but we will only give it as an example of how NOT to do it. After all, science, nutrition experts, and the scientific community do not in all cases stand up for the chosen tactics of losing weight or nutrition (although it would seem that rich and far from stupid people should have the best nutritionists in the world). Alas, money does not save from folly.

But the main difference between celebrities and ordinary people is that in case of undermined health, they will have the necessary amounts for subsequent treatment. Still, we should bypass such "experiments."

So here are some of the weirdest celebrity diets of all time.

1. The "sirtfoods" diet was made famous by Adele, but the singer said she had never tried it.

It was rumored that Adele lost weight with the help of the Sirtfood diet, which is based on the consumption of berries, herbs, and red wine.

The sirtfoods diet is claimed to help reduce inflammation, slow aging, and speed up weight loss while enjoying berries, herbs, dark chocolate, and red wine.

The meal plan was popularized in 2019 following rumors of an affair with pop star Adele.

However, in a recent interview with Vogue, she said she doesn't follow any particular diet.

What the science thinks: It's worth noting that the diet also includes a 1,000 to 1,500-calorie-per-day strict calorie reduction phase, which experts say is extremely dangerous for an adult.

2. Joe Rogan tried a trendy meat diet that eventually became a social movement.

After repeatedly telling guests on his podcast about the "carnivore" diet, Joe Rogan also tried mainly eating or only meat for an entire month.

Joe Rogan said he was on meat and fruit-only diet in early 2022.

The controversial podcast has previously hosted prominent meat-only advocates, including Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson.

What the science thinks: While research on a meat-only diet continues, the long-term health effects are unclear. Eating only meat may have health implications, as studies show that plant-based nutrients such as fiber and polyphenols protect against heart disease and cancer, and meat does not.

3. Kim Kardashian went on a strict carb-restricted diet to lose 7 kilos in 3 weeks for the Met Gala

Kim Kardashian reportedly dropped 7kg for the 2022 Met Gala, but experts say the result is not sustainable or healthy.

Kim Kardashian is no stranger to diet controversy, but her weight loss in 2022 for the Met Gala sparked concern from experts who said the "extreme" tactics could be unhealthy.

Kardashian said she lost 20 pounds in a few weeks by cutting sugar and carbs and eating "only the purest vegetables and protein."

What the science thinks: For healthy weight loss, nutrition experts recommend aiming for between 0.5 and 1 kilogram per week, ideally through small but essential changes in lifestyle and daily habits.

4. Heidi Montag went on a 'predator diet' by eating raw liver

'Two Hills' star Heidi Montag has noted that she occasionally snacks on raw bison heart, which she says is part of a meat-rich diet to boost fertility.

Heidi Montag said she started eating raw meat to improve her fertility, part of her interest in anthropology and "the way people should eat."

What science thinks: Let's say that raw meat is DANGEROUS; it can potentially be contaminated with bacteria and parasites that can lead to serious health problems! Potential pathogens in raw meat and organs include E. coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter, Ascaris, and Listeria.

5. Victoria Beckham said she had a "disciplined" diet with many healthy fats. David Beckham noted that she mainly eats fish and vegetables

Former Spice Girl member Victoria Beckham followed the same diet for over two decades, eating almost exclusively fish and vegetables.

Football star David Beckham said in early 2022 that while he is a gourmet, his wife "very rarely deviates" from her favorite dish of grilled fish and steamed vegetables.

Mono-diets, especially over a long period, are likely to hurt health. Food variety is an excellent way to get enough vitamins and minerals, so eating the same foods daily can lead to nutrient deficiencies and should be avoided.

What the Science Thinks: Try to include protein and foods like vegetables and fruits every time you eat a healthy, satisfying meal, recommends nutritionist Bridget Zeitlin. She says that eating these foods can be convenient and beneficial if you get enough nutrients.

6. Rebel Wilson reportedly used the "Meyer Method" to lose weight by eliminating sugar, dairy, and gluten by thoroughly chewing each bite 40 times.

Rumor has it that Rebel Wilson followed the Mayr Method, a diet plan popularized 100 years ago by an Austrian physician.

Actress Rebel Wilson overhauled her lifestyle in 2020, declaring it the "Year of Health."

As part of the changes, she reportedly followed a diet based on health theories developed by an Austrian physician 100 years ago.

The Mayr Method, named after Dr. Franz Xavier Mayr, is a complex set of habits that experts say is a mixture of good advice and pseudoscience.

For example, the diet emphasizes "mindful eating" or slowing down to enjoy food, which can be a great way to tune in to your appetite and avoid overeating. However, according to nutritionists, the diet's prescription to chew each bite at least 40 times is excessive.

What the Science Thinks: Likewise, the Mayr Method principles of cutting out caffeine, sugar, and dairy, not snacking between meals, or eating raw food after 4:00 pm are not based on science or proven to be a healthy habit.

7. Arnold Schwarzenegger indulges in alcoholic protein shakes.

Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2022 (left) and 1975 (right). The bodybuilding legend said that he continues to train almost every day and loves protein shakes with schnapps.

Seven-time Mr. Olympia Arnold Schwarzenegger eats a primarily plant-based diet and is open about its health benefits, including lowering cholesterol and "feeling younger."

But the iconic bodybuilder also sometimes treats himself to a steak or an Austrian Wiener Schnitzel and, he says, a sip of alcohol in his protein shakes.

Schwarzenegger said he started adding booze to protein shakes hoping that the protein would be absorbed faster, but now he enjoys the extra flavor of tequila or schnapps, he told Insider.

What the science thinks: While alcohol won't necessarily stop your fitness progress, too much alcohol can make it harder for you to absorb protein for recovery and muscle building, multiple studies show.

And being overly drunk or hungover can make exercising, eating well, and practicing other healthy habits more complex over time.

8. Professional American football player Aaron Rodgers does a purge that includes a strict diet, warm ghee in the morning, and laxatives at night.

Green Bay Packers athlete Aaron Rogers said the 12-day cleansing with Ayurveda (a system of alternative medicine with historical roots in India) is helping his mind and body.

NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he cut out sugar, sex, and alcohol and consumed warm oil and laxatives as part of an intensive 12-day cleanse.

The cleansing, called panchakarma, has its roots in Ayurveda, a traditional Indian healing practice, and is meant to heal the body and mind.

What the Science Thinks: According to experts, this practice has no evidence-based health benefits. Your body naturally completes any necessary detoxification through the liver and kidneys, and supplements that help cleanse the body often don't work or do more harm than good, leading to dehydration or digestive issues.

9. Venus Williams and Anne Hathaway went raw

Venus Williams is a vegan athlete who previously followed a raw diet to cope with the symptoms of an autoimmune disease.

Numerous celebrities have attempted a raw, plant-based diet on a raw vegan diet, including tennis star Venus Williams and actress Anne Hathaway.

Williams became a vegan in 2011 after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and said the raw food diet has helped with her symptoms.

What the science thinks: Scientists say that going vegan can bring health benefits, including for athletes, such as more energy and better recovery. However, vegans may have difficulty getting enough of some nutrients. Plant-based foods are low in calories, incredibly when raw, which can be a problem for athletes trying to make up for a calorie deficit.

10. Intermittent fasting is a famous celebrity diet by stars like Chris Hemsworth and David Harbour.

Thor actor Chris Hemsworth usually gains weight to play a superhero but has used intermittent fasting to lose weight quickly for other roles.

Intermittent fasting, or limiting food intake at specific times each day, has become a popular diet to speed up weight loss and reduce the risk of chronic disease.

Some celebrities have picked up this diet to help transform their bodies for specific roles.

What the science thinks: The evidence for intermittent fasting is mixed, despite its popularity. Yes, it can help people lose weight by reducing total calories, but a 2020 study found that intermittent fasting may not always promote weight loss and may be more likely to cause muscle loss.

11. In 2006, Beyoncé said she lost weight for her role in Dream Girl using the Master Cleanse diet, which limited juice fasting. Now she's pushing another extreme plan

Master Cleanse is a ten day course.

Master Cleanse is a 10-day juice cleanse that requires dieters to eat nothing and drink only a mixture of lemon, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper.

What Science Thinks: Restricting calories to just a lemon drink means you won't get all the nutrients you need. A lack of fiber, protein and healthy fats is also likely to cause a Master Cleanse dieter to feel sluggish and hungry throughout the diet.

"It can be dangerous for the average person to follow it without a team of nutritionists and trainers like Beyoncé," nutritionist Daniel O'Shaughnessy said.

12. Mariah Carey admitted that she only eats Norwegian salmon and capers daily.

Carey said she tries to eat as much protein as possible.

"It's tough," Carey told E! in an interview from 2016. “My diet—you would hate it. All you eat is Norwegian salmon and capers daily - that's it."

What the Science Thinks: While eating protein can help you feel full, eating only salmon means you won't be getting essential nutrients found in foods like vegetables, fruits, and grains. Carey's diet is not designed for the long term.

13. Chris Pratt stuck to a post called "Daniel's Diet."

Pratt spoke about the diet plan and encouraged fans to join the program.

According to Daniel's diet, people on it eat only fruits, vegetables, and unleavened bread for 21 consecutive days.

Like other restrictive diets, it is based on the idea that the body needs to cleanse itself of toxins.

What the science thinks: Diets that severely restrict calories or the types of foods you eat usually don't lead to long-term weight loss and may not provide you with all the nutrients you need, experts warn.

14. Actress Shailene Woodley regularly eats clay, allegedly for its detoxifying properties.

“Clay is one of the best things you can add to your body,” Shailene Woodley said on a beauty blog. The experts disagree.

One of the weirdest diets on the list is eating clay... as a supplement. It supposedly cleanses the body.

What Science Thinks: This is a bogus medical claim. Your kidneys and liver don't need help to process toxins.

Clay may contain trace amounts of some beneficial minerals, such as iron and calcium, but there are better ways to get them (for example, eating foods rich in these minerals, such as spinach, broccoli, kale, and nuts).

15. Marilyn Monroe ate a lot of raw eggs, steaks, and chocolate syrup ice cream.

The Monroe diet may increase the risk of salmonella poisoning.

In a 1952 interview, Monroe called her diet choices "absolutely bizarre," and she was right. Eating raw eggs beaten with milk can lead to salmonella poisoning, and skipping a meal before dinner of steak and five carrots can easily cause a dieter to lose essential nutrients.

What the Science Thinks: The late actress's diet appears to be an attempt at calorie restriction and a high-protein diet, but eating so little fiber and fresh foods can lead to nutritional deficiencies, heart problems, and feelings of lethargy.

16. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, of The Beach fame, ate cookies to lose weight.

According to the official Cookie Diet website, the unique cookie contains a "secret protein blend of amino acids," but it tastes like regular cookies.

To lose weight, Snooki followed a biscuit diet, which includes eating nine 90-calorie cookies daily in addition to a small meal at dinner.

This "eating plan" was developed by Dr. Sanford Segal in 1975 to help his patients consume fewer calories.

What the science thinks: Although the exact ingredients of the cookie are kept secret, the basic concept of eating the same food in almost every meal is unhealthy. Dieters will need one dinner a day to be rich in fresh vegetables, protein, and other essential nutrients, and even then, a person may not be meeting their daily nutrient requirements.

17. Many celebrities, including Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr and actresses Jessica Alba and Blake Lively, have been on a juice diet.

Proponents say the juice diet detoxifies the body and acts as a dietary "reset."

Juice cleansing has become synonymous with celebrity diet culture. These cleaners are designed to detoxify the body and act as a dietary "reset" even though they are not science-based weight loss methods.

What Science Thinks: Whether the cleanse involves cutting out food altogether or replacing individual meals with juice, the concept of a juice cleanse doesn't fit with human biology. The body has a built-in detox system that gets rid of toxins without expensive sugary water.

And yet, such a strict calorie restriction can certainly lead to weight loss, but at the expense of feeling constantly tired, hungry (and irritable), with the inability to diet for more than a week. Experts say that if you tried for longer, you would probably run into nutritional deficiencies.

18. Twitter founder Jack Dorsey only eats once a day and fasts all weekend.

Jack Dorsey said he loves intermittent fasting.

For one meal a day, Dorsey eats protein (fish, chicken, or steak), vegetables (arugula or spinach salad, asparagus, or Brussels sprouts), and mixed berry or dark chocolate dessert, all of which he eats after 6:30 p.m. and before 9:00 p.m. :00.

What the science thinks: The problems here are similar to any kind of intermittent fasting. Science does not very much approve of such experiments on the body.

19. Athlete and American football star Tom Brady does not eat eggplant and tomatoes, but drinks liters of water daily, which he claims prevents sunburn.

Brady doesn't eat certain foods because he believes they have negative effects on his body.

Brady even came up with a name for his unique diet - the TB12 diet - and wrote a book about it. As part of his 12-step plan to stay in top shape, Brady said he doesn't eat nightshades, a group of vegetables including eggplant and tomatoes, because they cause inflammation and raise the body's pH.

What the science thinks: Studies show that eating or abstaining from certain foods cannot change the body's pH enough to produce the results Brady suggested. In addition, vegetables such as eggplant and tomatoes are rich in fiber (eggplant) and vitamins A and C (tomatoes). Vitamins A and C are known to help reduce inflammation, unlike what the TB12 diet suggests.

Brady said he also drinks more than 5 liters of water daily to protect himself from sunburn, but there is no scientific evidence that drinking water prevents sunburn.

20. Tracey Anderson put celebrities on a baby food diet of up to 14 cans of baby food a day with a regular dinner meal, but no more than 1,400 calories in total.

Anderson recommends eating baby food at every meal except dinner to lose weight.

Celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson endorsed this weight loss diet.

The rules are simple: baby food for every meal except dinner, which should be a low-calorie mix of lean meats and vegetables.

What the Science Thinks: If you try this diet (you shouldn't), you will probably spend most of your time with a tiny spoon and feel unbearably hungry.

21. Chanel fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld drank up to 10 Diet Coke daily and limited his calories in the name of fashion.

Lagerfeld consumed only 1,200 calories a day.

The story goes that one day Lagerfeld woke up and decided he didn't like his body anymore. He hired a doctor to help him lose 35 kilograms, and then, as a duo, wrote a book about it called The Karl Lagerfeld Diet.

Lagerfeld, who died at age 85, drank up to 10 Diet Coke daily and ate small meals to limit his calories. For breakfast, he ate toast, one egg, juice, yogurt, and what is said to be a can of Diet Coke. For dinner he had quail eggs, salmon and Brussels sprouts or veal with plums.

What the science thinks: So he limited the number of calories to 1200 per day, while men are recommended to eat from 2000 to 2500 calories per day.

In addition, drinking large amounts of Diet Coke without enough food can cause nervousness and other body problems. For example, it has been proven that drinking a drink can increase the risk of stroke or heart disease.

22. Steve Jobs followed a strict fruit diet, sometimes limiting himself to only apples and carrots.

Eating only fruits and some vegetables was part of Steve Jobs' eccentric behavior.

The Apple founder named the corporation after one of his favorite foods after visiting an orchard. But Jobs' passion for fruit goes further. He practiced a "fruit" diet, a stricter form of veganism limited mainly to fruits and some vegetables.

Jobs' biography states that his skin sometimes took on a "sunset orange tint" due to his odd diet, and his obsession with fasting and extreme dietary restrictions has been described as a full blown eating disorder.

Ashton Kutcher ended up in the hospital after a month of this diet, which he followed to prepare for the role of Jobs in the biopic.

What Science Thinks: Fresh fruits and vegetables are part of a healthy, balanced diet. But alone, they lack sufficient protein and fat, as well as essential nutrients such as vitamin B, calcium, and zinc. This amount of fructose can also put stress on the liver and heart.

23. Elizabeth Taylor wrote a diet book based on her own weight loss recipes, including a hamburger and peanut butter sandwich recipe.

Elizabeth Taylor had an eccentric list of recipes she created and ate for weight loss, including some really bizarre combinations.

The basis of the diet included peanut butter, tuna and grapefruit, as well as a Rock Hudson cocktail (Hershey's syrup, vodka and Kahlua liqueur).

What the Science Thinks:Needless to say, in a diet where alcohol is present, not everything is good and normal.

24. Madonna eats a macrobiotic diet (recognized as a pseudoscientific diet) consisting of soy, sea vegetables and fermented foods.

This plan is not only restrictive, but also makes it difficult to get enough essential nutrients such as calcium, iron, and B vitamins.

Macrobiotic foods, including whole grains, soy, sea vegetables, and fermented foods such as sauerkraut and miso, are Madonna's staple foods. She does not eat wheat, eggs, meat or dairy products.

What the Science Thinks: While fermented foods are well known in the medical community for their ability to cultivate gut flora, this plan is mostly full of flaws. Not only is this a severely restricted diet (and therefore nutrient-poor), but it also makes it difficult to get enough essential nutrients such as calcium, iron, and B vitamins.

25. TV presenter and actress Kelly Ripa uses an alkaline diet to optimize her PH levels. She prefers legumes and vegetables. Banned meat, grains, alcohol and caffeine

Trying to balance your body's pH level doesn't work and is reportedly an unnecessarily restrictive diet.

Kelly Ripa follows a diet plan designed to optimize pH balance with alkaline foods like fruits and vegetables, soy, legumes, and nuts. The diet plan eliminates meat, dairy, grains, eggs, meat, processed foods, caffeine, and alcohol.

What the Science Thinks: Diet is also unnecessarily restrictive of nutrients, and in order to follow it correctly, you should check your urine pH levels regularly. While there are some nutritional plan benefits, they tend to be based on common sense, such as eating more vegetables and less red meat and junk food. In addition, coffee (natural) has many benefits, so giving it up is not very healthy for most people.

26. Elvis Presley was one of the early proponents of the Sleeping Beauty Diet, which involves sleeping 10 or more hours a day to fight hunger.

Elvis Presley resorted to long sleep in his later years to lose weight, a trend now called the Sleeping Beauty Diet.

The king of rock and roll was known for his eccentric eating habits. In his later years, when he was battling obesity and related health problems, his doctor recommended that he use the extra sleep as a means to lose weight. There were even rumors that this unknown doctor with a bad reputation went so far as to use a medically induced coma to help Presley shed a few extra pounds.

What the science thinks: Studies show that getting enough sleep is important for a healthy metabolism, but overdoing it can have the opposite effect and lead to muscle loss.

27. Brooke Shields made the grapefruit diet famous. It includes 800 calories per day and lots of pink citrus fruits.

Brooke Shields' grapefruit diet involves a severe calorie deficit.

The grapefruit diet can help you lose weight, but only because of severe calorie restriction, not because of some magic fruit enzyme.

The diet plan limits calories to 800 per day, including eggs in the morning, grapefruit throughout the day, and a small piece of meat with vegetables for dinner.

What the Science Thinks: Such malnutrition can lead to loss of muscle mass, slow metabolism and, in severe cases, serious problems due to malnutrition. It can also be dangerous for people who are at risk for eating disorders.

28. Gwyneth Paltrow's health brand Goop wrote about numerous questionable dietary practices, including a goat's milk cleanse.

Gwyneth Paltrow created the infamous wellness brand Goop in the US.

In a 2017 Q&A on, a "naturopathic doctor" (a suspicious alternative medicine type who uses natural remedies to treat patients) named Linda Lancaster suggested that readers drink goat's milk and nothing else for eight days. in a row to get rid of any parasites that may be in the body.

What the science thinks: Not only is this advice lacking scientific evidence, but eating raw dairy products can also lead to foodborne illness and subsequent hospitalization.

29. Christina Aguilera follows the 7-Day Color Diet, which involves eating a different color of food every day of the week.

The same effect can be achieved if a person eats colorful, nutrient-rich foods every day of the week.

Dieters are advised to eat only one color group each day, consuming white, red, green, orange, purple, yellow and rainbow colored foods in a specific order. The thought is that this way of grouping foods ensures that dieters get all of their nutrients, because different colored foods offer different nutrients.

What Science Thinks: While limiting yourself to one color of food every day is not bad for your health (assuming you eat mostly unprocessed, fresh foods), the same effect can be achieved if a person eats colorful (not pale like tomatoes in winter), nutrient-dense meals every day of the week.

30. Katy Perry's M-Plan Diet Calls for Mushrooms to Replace One Meal a Day

Eating mushrooms like Katy Perry does may not help you lose weight in problem areas, but it can still be good for you.

Pop star Katy Perry reportedly turned to M-Plan, the so-called "mushroom diet", in 2013. She encourages replacing mushrooms with one meal each day.

No one knows who came up with this idea, and its benefits for weight loss have not even been proven.

What the science thinks: Mushrooms are healthy nonetheless, and replacing them with meat or pasta can help cut calories and add nutrients like zinc. They may even be good for your brain - some research suggests that eating mushrooms can help keep your mind sharp later in life.

And once again we repeat: everything that was said above is NOT an instruction for action, but a warning! Beware of strange diets, exercise better and eat mindfully, but that's it. Meat, fish, vegetables and fruits. Eat less fast food and soda with alcohol. Do not overeat, and everything will be fine with you, without harm to the body!

Everything changed in a young man's life after meeting Nicolas Cage, who was already an actor at that time and suggested that Depp leave his career as a musician to pursue a career as an actor.


11. Random role in A Nightmare on Elm Street

The actor got a role in the classic horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street, although he went to audition with his friend. The film not only became one of the best films with Depp but also allowed the young guy to “light up” in Hollywood.

In 1987, his acting career took a significant leap. He was invited to play a police officer in the popular serial film 21 Jump Street. He replaced the actor playing the main character - Jeff Yeager.


14. Burton's first film

Starting with the picture "Edward Scissorhands," Depp began to work closely with film director Tim Burton. They formed a natural, unique tandem.


And the film, by the way, became one of the best in Depp's career, and only “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” could get ahead of him in terms of rating.



15. More and more leading roles

Between 1993 and 2003, Depp starred in films such as Arizona Dream, Ed Wood, Last Moment, Dead Man, Don Juan de Marco, Donnie Brasco (with Al Pacino), "The Brave," "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," "Sleepy Hollow," "The Astronaut's Wife," "The Ninth Gate" and others.

18. The actor owes his leading role in life to Keith Richards

On the set of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie in 2003, he told a magazine that Keith Richards was the inspiration for Jack Sparrow's character.


19. The role of Willy Wonka

But the actor won another Empire Award for Best Actor for his work in the film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.


Having worked out the image of Willy Wonka in a film about a chocolate factory, Depp admitted that he had a severe allergic reaction to chocolate products as a child.



20. Tourist

The subsequent surge in his career occurred in 2010 in the film The Tourist, where Depp's partner on the set was the beautiful Angelina Jolie.


"Tourist" brought high commercial profits and once again confirmed the status of an excellent actor. Johnny received several world-class awards for this role.


21. Continuation of the pirate saga

This was followed by work on new parts of "Pirates" and an important event in the actor's career - his production company, where he was an actor and developer, and his sister is president, released his first film, "The Rum Diary" based on the book of the same name by Thompson. The author of the book is a friend of Depp.


22. There were anti-prizes in his career

But in an actor's career, there were not only high awards. He was also awarded the Golden Raspberry Anti Prize twice.


The first time for the role of an Indian in the film "The Lone Ranger," and the second for the image of Mordecai in the comedy film of the same name. I would like to note that this did not affect his fees and demand.


23. Billion Dollar Actor

The actor has three films in his arsenal that brought the creators over a billion US dollars: two parts of Pirates of the Caribbean and Alice in Wonderland.



24. Fruitful tandem with Burton

Together with Tim Burton, Depp worked on seven films.


25. Modern musical career as an actor

In 2015, Depp, Alice Cooper, and Joe Perry formed the rock band Hollywood Vampires.


In the very beginning, the group was created to honor the memory and revive the spirit of the famous bar called "The Hollywood Vampires." At that time, the group focused mainly on performing covers. But after she had her songs.


In 2019, the Hollywood Vampires released a new album called "Rise," featuring brand new material. Covers are available but in smaller numbers.


In 2019, the band performed on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, performing a song from the new album. The band members held a small concert to reminisce about the old school of rock.


Personal life


26. Marriage to Laurie Ann Ellison

The actor entered his first marriage at the age of 20. She was the bass player's sister from the group where Depp performed before meeting Nicolas Cage. It was Lori who introduced the actor to Nicholas.


27. Jennifer Gray and Sherelyn Fenn

Two years later, the marriage with Lori broke up, but Johnny did not lose heart and married Jennifer Grey.


This marriage was not long, and soon he got engaged to a new beloved - Sherelyn Fenn. This union also did not last long.


28. Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder

During the filming of Edward Scissorhands, the actor met Winona Ryder. Such feelings captured him and inspired him for the first time; he made himself a tattoo "Vyonna forever."


After parting, this inscription turned into "Alcoholic forever." Officially, the relationship was not recorded.


29. Kate Moss

One actor's severe relationship with women has developed with supermodel Kate Moss. They lived together for four years, from 1994 to 1998. These were the first real and powerful love feelings, not the previous love.


Hooligan and rowdy Depp was twice handcuffed for disorderly conduct. The first time it happened was in 1994. After a big fight with Kate in a New York hotel, he trashed the room, causing $1,200 damage.


30. Depp and Vanessa Paradis

And in 1998, as the actor himself says, a meeting with Vanessa Paradis completely changed his life.


Then he was arrested for the second time. Now he has lashed out at the paparazzi chasing the actor on a date with Vanessa.


In union with Vanessa, Johnny had beautiful children: a daughter - Lily-Rose Melody Depp (born 1999), and in 2002 a son - John Jack Christopher Depp.


The family lived in Paris, in the homeland of Paradis.



31. Daughter's illness

In 2007, misfortune struck the family - little Lily became seriously ill. The problem was in the kidneys, and the girl spent a long time in the hospital.


After the baby fully recovered from her illness, Depp visited the hospital in a Jack Sparrow costume and entertained sick children for several hours. He later donated $2 million to this medical institution.


32. Divorce from Paradis

In 2012, the amorous Depp again wanted romantic adventures. Hiding and experiencing a break within the family for a long time, Vanessa Paradis and Depp announced their divorce and finally broke up.


33. Amber Heard

The reason for the gap was the young and charming Amber Heard, with whom the actor began an affair during the filming of The Rum Diary.


In 2013, the actor proposed to the girl, and a year later, the couple formalized the relationship.


2016 was a challenging year for him. Depp's mother died, and three days later, his wife announced her intention to divorce.


Depp and Heard divorced in early 2017, officially.


34. Relationship with Polina Glen

The actor's romance with Glen lasted almost a year. The girl moved into Depp's apartment in Los Angeles and continued to teach choreography lessons. After meeting for a while, the couple started talking about the wedding. Depp wanted to ask the parents of the Russian dancer to marry, but this did not happen.


Polina soon broke off relations with the actor, saying that his extraordinary popularity was to blame. At that time, there was a noisy divorce from Hurd, which took the actor a lot of time and energy. The girl did not like such close attention, which is why she fled to Russia.



35. Romance with Jolie

For the first time, Depp and Jolie started talking during the filming of The Tourist. The whole world held its breath in anticipation of any action from the stars, and the press had already begun to release various assumptions.


But the matter did not go beyond rumors. Other sources stated that there was no mutual understanding between the actors on the set. Jolie allegedly did not like Johnny's crumpled appearance.


Coincidentally, both celebrities divorced almost at the same time. Rumor has it that Angelina once helped the actor cope with bankruptcy after numerous court cases, but these data were not confirmed either.


Depp once said that Jolie is brilliant and profound, in addition to being impeccably beautiful.


36. Amber Heard Scandal

When the couple got married in 2015, after filming together in the film The Rum Diary, many of Depp's entourage were not happy about this news and advised him to start drafting a prenuptial agreement. But the actor was overwhelmed with love, and he did not consider this option.


Almost immediately, the scandalous disassembly of the couple began to seep into the network. Amber wrote that 1.5 years of marriage with Depp was a nightmare for her. According to the star, she was repeatedly abused by her husband.


Hurd began to provide evidence in the form of bruises, after which the actor's career cracked at the seams. Litigation dragged on, entailed a colossal waste of Depp's funds, and cast a shadow on his reputation.


But finally, the actor stood up for his defense, saying that he was a victim of violence. Johnny provided the court with dozens of videos showing inappropriate behavior and aggression of his ex-wife. Depp said that the actress regularly insulted him and beat him.


Later, a video from a psychologist appeared on the network, where Hurd confessed to throwing heavy objects at her husband, as a result of which he lost a piece of his finger. She said she often raised her hand to him.


On social networks, people massively came to the defense of Depp, demanding that Heard be punished for whitening the name and reputation of the actor.



37. Exes stood up for Depp

Vanessa Paradis, Johnny's ex-wife, officially announced that the actor was not involved in the violence against Amber. The actress is sure that Hurd's words are slander. Depp is kind, loving, and utterly incapable of violence.


Winona Ryder, who met with the actor, considers their relationship the most beautiful in her life.

Other facts


41. Scandalous nightclub

In 1992, The Viper Room opened in Los Angeles, a nightclub owned by Depp. On October 31 of the following year, the budding young musician and actor Phoenix River died of drug intoxication.
