Johnny Depp debuts newly clean-shaven look while rocking out with Jeff Beck at Finland tour show
Johnny Depp looked noticeably different as he hit the stage on Jeff Beck’s tour over the weekend. The Edward Scissorhands actor is continuing to perform as a special guest on Jeff’s world tour, which has moved over to mainland Europe following a stint in the UK earlier this month. On Sunday, the pair shared the stage in Finland to perform at the Helsinki Blues Festival, and some fans no doubt did a double-take as Johnny arrived sporting a fresh look. It appears the 59-year-old has given himself a mini makeover in the middle of the tour, having debuted a clean-shaven look after getting rid of the goatee beard he wore during his six-week libel trial against ex-wife Amber Heard. Johnny seemed to be in great spirits as he soaked in the warm reception from the audience, and waved and smiled at them while strumming the guitar on-stage alongside his frequent musical collaborator Jeff. The pair have grown close in recent months and are even set to release a joint album in July. Last week, they dropped the first single from the record, This Is A Song For Miss Hedy Lamarr, which was inspired by the early Hollywood starlet. Johnny and Jeff, 77, first met in 2016 and the album’s been in the works since 2019, when the actor was also working with Alice Cooper’s supergroup Hollywood Vampires.Sources close to the Pirates of the Caribbean actor have said he is now focusing on rebuilding his career after going through the gruelling trial against Amber. Johnny filed a lawsuit against the Aquaman actress over an article she wrote detailing her experience with domestic abuse.

Amber Heard takes aim at Depp’s winning, now-famous lawyer Camille Vasquez
just attack ex-husband Johnny Depp in her first interview about her humiliating courtroom loss — she also took direct aim at his now-celebrity attorney Camille Vasquez.Speaking to NBC News for a one-hour “Dateline” special, Heard, 36, showed clear disdain when Savannah Guthrie asked about Vasquez’s repeated argument that the actress gave “the performance of her life” and was merely acting in her explosive courtroom testimony.“Says the lawyer for the man who convinced the world he had scissors for fingers,” Heard shot back, her voice dripping with sarcasm while referring to Depp’s performances in the 1990 fantasy “Edward Scissorhands.”“I’m the performer? I had listened to weeks of testimony insinuating that — or saying quite directly — that I’m a terrible actress.“So I’m a bit confused how I could be both,” she said snapped in a teaser of the interview released Tuesday.Heard only mustered backhanded praise when Guthrie bluntly asked her if she thought she lost because her ex-husband “just had better lawyers” than her.“I will say his lawyers did certainly a better job of distracting the jury from the real issues,” the actress replied, without ever directly naming Vasquez or her colleague, Benjamin Chew.Vasquez’s winning performance during the explosive six-week trial made her an unexpected star as well as a newly promoted partner in her firm.She had both opened and closed her case by suggesting that the actress would merely be performing on the stand.“She has been living and breathing this lie for years now, and she has been preparing to give the performance of her life in this trial,” Vasquez said during opening statements in April.Then in closing arguments late last month, she told the court, “She came into this

Dame Emma Thompson argues Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial ‘isn’t representative’ of MeToo: ‘It’s not going to be derailed’
supports HTML5 videoDame Emma Thompson has said the MeToo movement shouldn’t be measured on the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial, which she feels ‘isn’t representative’ of the wider cause. Edward Scissorhands actor Depp, 59, filed a lawsuit against ex-wife Heard, 36, claiming an op-ed she wrote about her domestic abuse experience defamed him by suggesting he was physically and sexually abusive towards her throughout their marriage, which ended in 2017. Aquaman star Heard then counter-sued her former husband, accusing him of defaming her by claiming her domestic abuse account was false. The pair hashed it out in court during a televised six-week trial, which resulted in a jury finding that Heard did defame Depp with the article, which was published by The Washington Post in 2018. In her first statement after the verdict last week, Heard said the jury’s decision was a ‘setback’ for victims of domestic violence. Dame Emma, 63, has been an outspoken campaigner for the MeToo movement, which gathered momentum when sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein began to emerge in 2016. The Love Actually actress said she hasn’t been keeping up with the legal drama between Depp and Heard, but that it was important not to base the core of the MeToo movement on the case. ‘One of the things that’s very difficult to do is judge an issue like the MeToo issue brings to the fore when you’re dealing with very very famous people.

Johnny Depp jury asks judge question about domestic abuse article after four hours of deliberations in Amber Heard trial
The jury making the decision in Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s libel trial emerged to ask the judge a question as deliberations continued on Tuesday. Lawyers for Depp, 58, and Heard, 36, have spent six weeks arguing the case for either side after the Pirates of the Caribbean actor sued his ex-wife over a 2018 article she wrote for The Washington Post about her experience with domestic abuse. The article – which featured the headline: ‘I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change’ – did not name Depp but his lawyers argued it was clear it was written about him and suggested he was physically and sexually abusive towards her. On Tuesday, the jury resumed their deliberations in Fairfax, Virginia, where they sent the judge a question after around four hours of reconvening. The seven-person jury asked Judge Penney Azcarate to clarify whether they should consider the entire article or just the headline. Judge Azcarate said she would tell the jury that the headline was the statement they should consider to reach their verdict. Aquaman actress Heard has kept a low profile since their respective legal teams gave their closing arguments on Friday, but Depp flew over to the UK last weekend to join Jeff Beck on tour. The Edward Scissorhands actor made a surprise appearance at Beck’s concert in Sheffield, where they sang their 2020 collaboration Isolation, a cover of John Lennon’s 1970 song, before also making an appearance on stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Sunday. The Hollywood star seemed to be in cheerful spirits as he performed and waved to the audience as he received a standing ovation.
