Hollywood, truthfully speaking, can often turn out to be a strange place. Co-stars often make strange bedfellow, pun definitely intended. Actors who say they have a camaraderie with the others, actually have anything but that. Rivalries are often the way to set the cash registers ringing. You are the best friend of the other unless one strange twitter takedown or demeaning Facebook post highlights some sort of duplicitous nature.
But then, is everyone here bad? Is everyone actually succeeding in forging rivalries and enemies in the pretext of being good friends or offering that so-called spotless character? Surely, not everyone can be dark-hearted, right?
Well, surely, exceptions are there and marvelous ones at that. Some that apparently offer the bright hope that not all are so awful in character in Hollywood and that, regardless of the success that box-office sellouts and relative stardom, what one cherishes is friendship, at the end of the day.
Take the case of famous Spanish actor Javier Bardem. Everyone who reads a paparazzi magazine or simply is in sync with what’s happening in the glitzy but tumultuous world of Hollywood knows that Javier Bardem supports Johnny Depp.
But that’s the question, after all!
Just why is it so. Just why Javier Bardem supports Johnny Depp, an actor who’s often courted controversy in his career just like rich plaudits for his highly immersive characters. Take Edward Scissorhands for example.
Well, the truth of the matter behind why Javier Bardem supports Johnny Depp is that he’s not, for starters, the only actor who has stepped in to support the famous actor from films like The Tourist and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.
In the lawsuit case against Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard, many actors have vocally supported Depp, who’s sued his former wife who had written an article previously highlighting how “her husband had abused her.”
In that regard, among the other actors who had already stepped in to offer their support to Johnny Depp were Winona Ryder, Penelope Cruz, among the others.
Two gigantic Hollywood stars who’ve time and again passionately defended Depp. Now, whether or not the famous actor wins his $50 million lawsuit against Amber Heard- who one can note has been sued for a massive sum- what’s clear is that Javier Bardem supports Johnny Depp and that’s really great for the latter. Right?
What else does one need during such difficult times? While surely, if the Pirates of the Caribbean star is proven wrong, he must pay for his misdeed (if any). But it not, then what one must cherish is that true friendship also blossoms in contemporary Hollywood. And it seems, it’s here to stay.
The following is what Javier Bardem (known for films like Vickey, Christina, and Barcelona, Skyfall among others) is known to have said in his passionate defense of Depp:
‘I love Johnny because he is a good human being, trapped in the lies and manipulations of toxic beings and yet smiling and loving us all in spite of it.
‘How? Through his music, through his acting, through his silence. This means a lot. Thank you, Johnny. Millions of others like me love you deeply.’
