Johnny Depp has shared a behind-the-scenes video from his recently released movie “Jeanne du Barry”. The video, which features Depp strumming a guitar while smoking, was posted on his TikTok account before being shared on his Instagram stories.
The movie, written and directed by Maïwenn, stars herself and Johnny Depp in leading roles. “Jeanne du Barry” had its world premiere as the opening film at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival on May 16th, 2023. It was then released in France on the same day.
During a news conference, Depp pushed back at suggestions he was making a comeback with the movie. “I keep wondering about the word comeback, because I didn’t go anywhere,” he said. “Yeah, maybe people stopped calling out of whatever their fear was at the time, but no, I didn’t go nowhere.”
“Jeanne du Barry”, in which Depp plays King Louis XV, received a seven-minute standing ovation at the luxurious Grand Theatre Lumiere.
