Johnny Depp suffered a “painful” broken ankle, as revealed by the actor and his band Hollywood vampires on Instagram today, Monday.
In a letter posted to his Instagram Stories, Depp explained the rift. “It started out as a small hiatus, but somewhere between Cannes and the Royal Albert Hall (in London), it got worse rather than better,” Depp wrote. “Several medical professionals have strongly advised me to avoid any activity for the time being, and unfortunately I am unable to travel at this time.”
Depp’s supergroup The Hollywood Vampires, which he is a part of with Aerosmith’s Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, said on their Instagram account that Depp’s “painful injury” caused the group to postpone all three dates of their tour. in the United States, which were scheduled for next week.
Depp “is devastated by this turn of events but can’t wait to rest so the four vampires can give their all on their European tour,” the group wrote on Instagram. Then the concerts in Boston; Manchester, New Hampshire, and Bethel, New York will take place on July 28, 29, and 30, respectively. The group is preparing to start their European tour next June.
The news comes after Depp attended the Cannes Film Festival, where he was present at the opening, to promote his new film. Jeanne-du-Barrywhich is his first film since winning the media defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber heardexactly one year ago.
At Cannes, Depp stood up to people calling the project a “comeback.” “I didn’t go anywhere,” he said during a press conference following the film’s opening night screening. “I actually live about 45 minutes from here. Maybe people stopped calling, out of fear at the time, but I got nowhere. I’ve been sitting.”
He also said he no longer felt “boycotted” by Hollywood, “because I don’t think about Hollywood. I don’t feel the need for Hollywood much anymore.”
In Jeanne-du-Barry Johnny Depp brings to life King Louis XV, in love with a woman who does not come from the court, who is the title character, which director Maïwenn has also reserved for herself.
Jeanne Bécu was an illegitimate daughter, born in 1743, who rose at the court of Louis XV to become his last official mistress. She was Madame du Barry, or Comtesse du Barry until 8 December 1793, when her head literally rolled off: she was beheaded.
Courtesan -a euphemism to say she was a luxury prostitute-, she didn’t get along with the king’s daughters, and the film follows all that is at the bottom of the story. But it’s boring, it’s a failure, it has a voice- above which tells what you see, or at the end, tells everything that happened to the protagonist while the camera points to the sky.
Maïwenn is neither a great performer nor an outstanding director. If some of all the money she had available in this expensive production had been invested in hiring a screenwriter, perhaps, in one of those, the result would have been different.
