Johnny Depp was greeted with cheers and fans hooting for him at the Cannes Film Festival 2023, where his latest film, ‘Jeanne du Barry’, was premiered. This is his first crucial role following his much-talked about defamation battle with ex-wife Amber Heard. At the festival, Depp got quite emotional. The internet is already overloaded with videos of Johnny Deep breaking down after receiving a seven-minute standing ovation after the screening of his film.
In ‘Jeanne du Barry’, Depp plays King Louis XV. As footage of Depp crying circulated on social media, the internet had a mixed reaction to it. Some were glad for him, while others were not. “SEVEN-MINUTE STANDING OVATION, Johnny Depp brought to tears,” one user said. Another user wrote, “My friends, this is what sweet transformation looks like.”
