With his career in a major crisis at this moment, Johnny Depp should take any help he can get.
Hollywood can be a harsh place – for insiders and outsiders, both. A streak of failures and you’re bound to be forgotten, no matter if you once reigned in terms of box-office numbers and popularity with the audience. And, when the details of your personal life come on the public radar, things can change drastically.
- What did Johnny Depp do?
- Here’s how Robert Downey Jr. is helping his friend
But when the courts and the police get involved, the chances of things going back to normal for you ever again are super slim.
Once a Hollywood favourite, Johnny Depp and his career in the industry have taken a massive hit following serious accusations against him by his ex-wife, Amber Heard.
However, rumours suggest that Depp might find help in the form of his long-time friend, Robert Downey Jr.
What did Johnny Depp do?
Amber Heard, Depp’s ex-wife, has charged him with serious allegations of domestic abuse on multiple occasions. Depp has denied them all, even though Heard’s allegations are detailed and backed by people such as her ex-acting coach, Kristina Sexton.
Depp is also suing the tabloid “The Sun” after it accused him of being a “wife-beater”.
Following these shocking revelations and accusations, Depp’s career has hit a major low. Those at the high offices at Disney have pointedly excluded Depp, not calling him back to take on his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in their plans for a new pirates adventure project. Other than this, the actor has also been delivering a string of box-office fails, sadly cementing his outcast position in the industry.

Here’s how Robert Downey Jr. is helping his friend
It seems that Depp’s situation may have struck a special chord with Downey Jr., who himself went through a rough patch in his career in the late 1990s and early 2000s after he was arrested for the possession of illegal drugs.
So, it isn’t such a wonder that Downey Jr. would help Depp out. To the effect that Robert Downey Jr. and Johnny Depp may even appear together in the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ franchise – all brought about by Downey Jr.
Moreover, Depp is a fan of the Marvel Universe and reportedly wants to star in the ‘Ghost Rider‘ series. Would Downey Jr. help him with that too?
However heartening it is to see friends help friends out of tricky situations in an industry known to be unkind, with such serious accusations against the star, it remains to be seen if he will be forgiven by the audience at large.
