Javier Bardem Defends Johnny Depp Against Amber Heard's Allegations: He's Trapped in Lies of 'Toxic Beings'

Javier Bardem is defending his Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales co-star Johnny Depp against Amber Heard‘s allegations.

The Oscar-winning actor filed a declaration in the defamation case that Johnny is pursuing against Amber, who has accused him of domestic abuse.

”I love Johnny. He has always been a true gentleman and an extremely generous and caring friend to my family and myself,” Javier wrote in his statement (obtained by the Blast). “On top of that, I’ve had the gift of working with him twice and have experienced his respectful attitude towards every single member of the crew alongside his unique and hilarious sense of humor. I stand by Johnny because I have always seen and felt a true caring and loving man in him … an extraordinary and unique artist who has listened to anyone who needed his help.”

He continued, “I not only love Johnny but respect him deeply and I thank him for being the free and careless little boy he is in his art and the mature and loving man he is in the lives of others, always there when we need him.”

“I love Johnny because he is a good human being, trapped in the lies and manipulations of toxic beings and yet smiling and loving us all in spite of it. How? Through his music, through his acting, through his silence. This means a lot. Thank you, Johnny. Millions of others like me love you deeply,” he added.

Javier‘s wife Penelope Cruz also spoke out about Johnny Depp’s defamation case – see how she reacted to Amber Heard‘s allegations.
