Two months after the jury ruled in his favor in his trial against Amber Heard, the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star made a guest appearance at the MTV VMAs.
Johnny Depp made his first major TV appearance since winning his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard at the 2022 MTV VMAs on Sunday, August 28. Johnny, 59, addressed/didn’t address the controversy surrounding the trial against his ex, 36, as he appeared as a Moonman in a video at the famed award show.
Johnny was seen on-screen, floating in the astronaut outfit as the award show kicked off! His suit was made to emulate the famous VMA trophy that every winner takes home. He floated above the stage before host LL Cool J took the stage. He joked about being “available” for appearances at major events like birthdays and weddings. “Any old thing you need,” he quipped.
While Johnny has certainly kept busy since the jury ruled in his favor against the Aquaman star, he hasn’t made any major televised appearances until the award show. Before the verdict came back, the Ed Wood actor had flown to England to perform alongside his friend Jeff Beck at some of the guitarist’s concerts. The duo also put out a new record, and Johnny is planning to tour with his supergroup the Hollywood Vampires in 2023.
