Earlier this week, Depp responded to suggestions that he was “boycotted” by Hollywood following the abuse allegations from his ex-wife, Amber Heard.
At Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday (May 17), the actor answered questions during a press conference after his new film premiered at the festival the day prior.
During the conference, Depp addressed his forced exit from the Fantastic Beasts franchise in 2020 after the abuse allegations came to light.
“Did I feel boycotted by Hollywood? You’d have to not have a pulse to feel like, ‘No. None of this is happening. It’s a weird joke,’” Depp said (via Variety). “When you’re asked to resign from a film you’re doing because of something that is merely a function of vowels and consonants floating in the air, yes, you feel boycotted.”
He added: “I don’t feel boycotted by Hollywood, because I don’t think about Hollywood. It’s a strange, funny time where everybody would love to be able to be themselves, but they can’t. They must fall in line with the person in front of them. If you want to live that life, I wish you the best.”
Meanwhile, Depp’s defamation case against Heard will be the subject of a new documentary series, Depp vs Heard, which is set to premiere on Channel 4 this Sunday.
