UNITED STATES – Johnny Depp seems to have found a way to pass the time during the long hours of hearing in his lawsuit against Amber Heard, his ex-girlfriend. The star actor of Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed on April 26 drawing in the middle of a trial, as you can see in our video at the top of the article.
He offered his work to his lawyer Benjamin Chew. The latter took out his glasses to admire the drawing of his client and seemed delighted with the gesture.
The sketch, drawn on a yellow sticky note, seemed to represent a woman’s face. The scene, broadcast on American television obviously did not go unnoticed on social networks, in particular on TikTok where it was seen more than seven million times.
The next day, April 27, Johnny Depp even appeared in court in Fairfax (Virginia) with his sketchbook which he carefully blackened during the hearing.

“He must have been so bored with Mister Rottenborn (Amber Heard’s lawyer) that he started drawing again I guess.”
Married from 2016 to 2018, the former spouses accuse each other of defamation during this trial, very followed and partly broadcast on American news channels.
In a column published in 2018 in the washington postAmber Heard did not name Johnny Depp, but she mentioned the accusations of domestic violence that she had brought against her husband in 2016. Last week the actor had assured that he had lost “everything” because of these accusations of violence.
The former companion of Vanessa Paradis will still be able to perfect his pencil stroke since the trial against Amber Heard must be held until May 20.
