Just days after finalizing his divorce from Amber Heard, Johnny Depp surprisingly showed up last night to the People’s Choice Awards! E! Online reports the actor accepted his Favorite Movie Icon award and thanked fans for being so loyal…because, you know, he was accused of hitting his ex-wife. Not exactly a reason to be.
“I came here for one reason tonight, for one reason and one reason only, for you, the people,” he began. “Through whatever good times or bad you’ve stood by me and trusted me. You very graciously invited me here once again tonight so I appreciate that very much. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.”
He added, “I’m very deeply affected by the kindness of your well wishes. It’s especially meaningful to me to be here in front of you to say thank you and to tell you that I truly feel that need to thank you,” before continuing, “Because in all honesty we all know we wouldn’t be standing up here tonight if it weren’t for you.”
Interesting. How do you feel about him in this situation?
