Penélope Cruz defends Johnny Depp over 'violent' Amber Heard divorce
20 March 2020 @ 19:34

HOLLYWOOD'S best-known Spanish actress Penélope Cruz has spoken out in defence of Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp, who is embroiled in bitter divorce proceedings from Amber Heard.

The media has spared no detail in the ugly split, reporting on accusations of domestic violence, lawyers presenting medical reports in court, audio footage in which Amber appears to admit she hit Depp and others in which she describes how he 'dragged her by the hair', 'spat on her' and 'nearly strangled her', and even high-profile witnesses called in, including James Franco.

Penélope, who is now 46 and first met Depp when she was 19, around the time of his central rôle in Edward Scissorhands, insists he is 'very friendly and kind indeed', with a 'great sense of humour', 'treats his friends really well' and is an 'exceptional person'.

“We love him very much, and I feel grateful to have someone so special in our lives,” Penélope says.

Her 'royal we' refers to herself and 'Bond villain' husband Javier Bardem, who worked with Depp on the fifth film in the Pirates of the Caribbean series.

Penélope herself worked with Depp on the fourth film, and also in Blow, and the recent adaptation of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express.
