Johnny Depp and Amber Heard might have once been known as a celebrity power couple, but that reputation has changed course – now, their dirty laundry is playing out in real time all over the world. Whether the allegations are true or the whole thing is just a big stunt to help the pair get back into the limelight, one thing’s for sure – the court case has provided plenty of entertainment, with the judge even having to warn Depp’s fans to stop laughing during the proceedings. Heard also appears to have her heart set on acquiring one, if not all, of Depp’s fabulous LA penthouses. Known for being a somewhat dark, idiosyncratic actor, Depp has appeared to have followed his instincts on character roles since his acting debut in 1984’s Nightmare on Elm Street . Before landing his big break, he dropped out of his Florida high school at age 15, played in several garage bands and got married early. It was by chance – and good luck – that Depp met Nicolas Cage on a trip to Los Angeles with his then wife, make-up artist Lori Anne Allison. They hit it off immediately and it was Cage who suggested his new buddy get into acting too. This led to Depp’s first film role and quick successes in Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow and the Pirates of the Caribbean series. He then moved on to more serious parts portraying drug and gangster criminals in Blow , Public Enemies and Black Mass. The Oscars slap aftermath: what will happen to Will Smith’s career?
