Johnny Depp has denied being a violent man and said the reaction to his ex-wife’s abuse allegations turned him ‘from Cinderella into Quasimodo’.
In his first interview about his ‘volatile’ marriage to Amber Heard, the actor said the past three years have ‘felt like a perverse situation that was inﬂicted on me.’
He said he could feel people looking at him differently after the actress alleged he ‘violently attacked’ her in their Los Angeles penthouse, which he firmly denied.
Also in the extraordinary interview, Depp accused Hollywood ‘power-mongers’ of ‘trying to shut him up’ and said he is prepared to quit if what he calls a conspiracy against him continues.
But he insisted that ultimately the truth ‘will come out’ and his reputation as a Hollywood hero will be restored.
Depp and 32-year-old actress Heard divorced in January 2017 after she applied for a domestic violence restraining order the year before.
She claimed the couple had an explosive row and he threw an iPhone in her face, bruising her eye and cheek.
