Johnny Depp cuts a relaxed figure as he prepares for his first movie in over TWO years


Johnny Depp caught the eye as he headed to the airport in Paris after undergoing a costume fitting for a new movie – his first in more than two years. 

The actor, 59, looked handsome with a freshly shaven face as he wore a fringed suede jacket and styled his hair in braids for the trip.

The planned film, director by French filmmaker Maiwenn Le Besco, sees the actor portray King Louie XV and will be his first movie since winning his recent defamation trail against Amber Heard.

Heard has said she plans to appeal the verdict as she teeters on the brink of bankruptcy.

Heard admitted through her lawyer that she cannot afford the $8.3 million in damages awarded to Depp.

Lawyers for Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have now failed to reach a last-minute agreement which might have seen the damages the actress owed to her former husband be reduced, following their six week defamation trial which ended earlier this month. 

Instead, the judge in the trial made the jury’s award official on Friday with a written order for Heard to pay Depp $10.35 million for damaging his reputation by describing herself as a domestic abuse victim in an op-ed piece she wrote.

Judge Penney Azcarate finalized the verdict as she entered a judgment order into the court record after a brief hearing in Fairfax County Circuit Court. Neither Depp nor Heard were present.
