Johnny Depp is planned to get a San Sebastian Film Festival award disregarding his constant legal battle with his ex Amber Heard, and the conversation including it. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor will get the Donostia Award, the film festival’s most important honor.
According to a report by People Magazine, Johnny Depp will get San Sebastian Film Festival’s most raised honor, which is the Donostia Award. The award has as of late been given to actors like Meryl Streep, Ian McKellen, Denzel Washington, Danny DeVito, Dame Judi Dench, Hugh Jackman, Bette Davis and a couple of other merit-estimable actors. The festival will begin on September 17 and end on September 25.
According to the report, the festival depicts Depp as, “one of contemporary film’s for the most part gifted and adaptable actors”. The report moreover communicates that Depp will acknowledge his award, mid-festival, on September 22. The Sweeney Todd actor went to the festival last year to present the documentary Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane McGowan, for which he filled in as a producer. Depp will be regarded with the award paying little heed to his constant problematic and significantly progressed legal battle with his ex Amber Heard.
Upon Johnny Depp’s division with Amber Heard in 2017, the Aquaman performer was permitted a $7 million settlement which she said she vowed to the ACLU and the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. While the two seemed to have settled their issues by then, with Heard regardless, detailing that their relationship was simply “passionate” yet sometimes “volatile”, in 2018 things continued.
In 2018, Heard formed an analysis piece for Washington Post where she ensured she was an overcomer of domestic violence. This consequently incited Depp then recording a $50 million defamation lawsuit against her, which is at this point a consistent battle. Depp and his lawyers furthermore archived a request for approval to investigate if Heard had donated the money she committed to the ACLU.
