Johnny Depp Calls Hollywood A ‘Vile F**king Circus’ In Candid GQ Chat, Twitter Is Not Impressed With Actor’s Cover Shoot

To say the last few have been tumultuous for Johnny Depp would be an understatement.

The “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” star had a messy divorce with Amber Heard, settled a lawsuit with his ex-managers and has also dealt with suits against a “City of Lies” crewmember, and his former bodyguard.

“The last three or four years have felt like a perverse situation that was inflicted on me,” Depp reflected in a new interview for the cover of British GQ. “It hurts.”

“Listen, I know I was never going to be Cinderella – I know this and accept it. But it felt like within a very, very short period of time that suddenly this version – for lack of a better word – of Cinderella had been immediately turned into the beast. He’s Quasimodo,” he continued. “I could feel people look at me differently, because of the accusations towards you.”

What arguably hurt the 55-year-old most is being labelled a violent man. “The thing that hurt me is being presented as something that you’re really as far away from as you could possibly get, you know? But to harm someone you love? As a kind of bully? No, it didn’t, it couldn’t even sound like me,” he told the publication. “So, initially, I just kept my mouth shut, you know?”

“I knew it was going to stick on me and it would get weirder. Keep going, you know? Go nuts. I ain’t going to get into a pissing contest with someone about it,” he explained. “Spit out what you need to spit out and, you know, my attorneys will take care of the rest. I never went out and spoke about the s**t.”

One person who did not appreciate GQ‘s coverage was Amber Heard’s lawyer. “It is outrageous that GQ never spoke to any of the multiple witnesses to Mr. Depp’s physical abuse of Ms. Heard prior to publishing its article,” the actress’ attorney said in a statement published by PageSix. “If GQ had done even a basic investigation into Mr. Depp’s claims, it would have quickly realized that his statements are entirely untrue.”

“Mr. Depp has blatantly disregarded the parties’ confidentiality agreement and yet has refused to allow Ms. Heard to respond to his baseless allegations, despite repeated requests that she be allowed to do so,” the statement continued. “Mr. Depp is shamefully continuing his psychological abuse of Ms. Heard, who has attempted to put a very painful part of her life firmly in her past. One need only look at the physical evidence to draw the proper conclusion.”

After Depp’s interview emerged online, Twitter users immediately took to social media to slam the mag for having him as their cover star, given the domestic abuse allegations previously made against him by Heard.
