Paul Bettany Addresses His Graphic Texts with Johnny Depp, Which Were Released as Part of His Libel Trial

Paul Bettany is speaking out to address his private text messages with Johnny Depp, which became public as part of the actor’s libel case against The Sun.

If you don’t remember, Johnny sued The Sun for libel over the paper’s use of the term “wife beater” to describe him. He lost the case and also lost a bid to have the ruling overturned.

The two actors have worked together on several films and have remained friends throughout the years. When Johnny was facing accusations from ex-wife Amber Heard, Paul tweeted, “Known Johnny Depp for years and through several relationships. He’s the sweetest, kindest, gentlest man that I’ve ever known. Just saying.”

Paul and Johnny texted each other in 2013 and wrote some graphic messages about Amber. The messages were made public in February 2020 when they were read aloud during a preliminary hearing for the trial.

The couple kept it casual in tees, comfy jackets and jeans, as they checked into their flight after attending the 2021 Emmy Awards the night before.

If you didn’t see, Paul was mentioned during Seth Rogen‘s call out of the award show’s COVID safety protocols.

“Let me start by saying there’s way too many of us in this little room. What are we doing? They said this was outdoors. It’s not. They lied to us,” Seth pointed out on stage just before presenting Outstanding Supporting Comedy Actress. “We’re in a hermetically sealed tent right now. I would not have come to this.”

Seth continued, “This is insane. I went from wiping my groceries to having Paul Bettany sneeze in my face.”

Claire Foy & Paul Bettany Will Get Divorced In New 'Very British Scandal' Series

Things between Claire Foy and Paul Bettany are about to get ugly as they have both signed on to star in A Very British Scandal.

The two actors will star as the Duke and Duchess of Argyll in the limited series from Amazon Prime and BBC One.

Here’s a short summary of the series: Famed for her charisma, beauty and style, Margaret (Foy), Duchess of Argyll, dominated the front pages as a divorcee featuring accusations of forgery, theft, violence, drug-taking, secret recording, bribery and an explicit Polaroid picture all played out in the white-hot glare of the 1960s media.

The limited series will be presented in three 60-minute episodes that will investigate the role institutional misogyny played in how the duchess was shamed in society and vilified by the press and the judicial system.

“I’m so excited to work with [director] Anne [Sewitsky], Sarah [Phelps] and Paul on this extraordinary project,” Claire shared in a statement, via TV Line. “To explore through this story how often shame, judgment and controversy surrounds a woman’s sexuality.”

The casting comes just days after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s explosive interview that pulled the veil back on the British monarchy.

Claire and Paul are the stars of two of the most popular streaming shows, The Crown and WandaVision!
