Johnny Depp’s Fans Notice His ‘Rotting’ Teeth after He Held Back Tears Following 7-Minute Standing Ovation

Johnny Depp made a triumphant return to the spotlight after a prolonged legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard. Following a highly publicized defamation trial, where Heard accused Depp of abuse, the actor emerged victorious, and his latest appearance at the Cannes Film Festival marked a notable comeback.

Depp received a standing ovation lasting seven minutes during the opening of the 2023 Cannes Film Festival for his role in the biographical drama “Jeanne Du Bary,” where he portrayed King Louis XV. Emotions overwhelmed the actor as he fought back tears, acknowledging the heartfelt reception from the audience.

The film, directed and produced by Maïwenn, stars Depp alongside other talented actors, recounting the story of Jeanne Vaubernier—a working-class woman in the 18th century who became the lover of King Louis XV.

In an interview at the Cannes Film Festival, Depp expressed his refusal to let the legal battle with Heard define him. He urged people not to pass judgment without understanding the challenges and experiences someone has faced.

Despite Depp’s positive reception at the festival, friends of Amber Heard criticized the organizers for inviting him. Festival director Thierry Fremaux defended the decision, emphasizing freedom of thought and speech within a legal framework.

However, alongside the accolades and controversy, online discussions focused on Depp’s physical appearance, particularly his teeth, which some fans described as “literally rotting.” This sparked debates on social media, with comments ranging from concerns about his dental health to humorous speculations about a new movie role.
