MTV’s Video Music Awards: Johnny Depp appears as astronaut, says ‘I needed the work’

Must Read

Actor Johnny Depp appeared as a floating astronaut as he hovered above the crowd at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards. Taking to his Instagram, Johnny posted a video and wrote, “Guess who? #VMAs.” In the video, Johnny said, “I just want you guys to know I’m available for birthdays, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, weddings, wakes. Any old thing you need.”

After Jack Harlow, Fergie and Lizzo’s performance, Johnny digitally appeared floating over the Prudential Center arena. As per Deadline, he also said, “Hey VMAs, let’s get back to the f***ing music, shall we?” In a later segment, Johnny also said, “…ANYTHING, you name it. So, oh, I’m also a dentist.”

Although Johnny isn’t in contention for any awards this year, he has taken home five Moonmen statues throughout his career. These include awards for Best Male Performance, Best Villain, Global Superstar and the Generation Award in 2012. Johnny made an appearance at the VMAs months after his defamation case with his ex-wife, actor Amber Heard.

In June this year, Johnny won his legal battle with Amber who had accused him of physical abuse. A Virginia jury found that Amber defamed Johnny in a 2018 Washington Post opinion piece about sexual violence and ordered her to pay him $15 million.

‘Fantastic Beasts 4’: Mads Mikkelsen teases Johnny Depp’s return as Grindelwald

After Johnny Depp lost his libel case against the UK tabloid The Sun, which had called him a ‘wife-beater’, Warner Bros removed him from the role of Gellert Grindelwald, the primary antagonist of the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise.

Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen took his place the third movie in the series, ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore’. Mikkelsen has confessed that he found replacing Depp ‘intimidating’, he said there is a possibility that Depp returns to the role.

While speaking to Deadline, Mikkelsen, also known for ‘Hannibal’ and ‘Doctor Strange’, said, “Obviously, well, now the course has changed—he won the suit, the court [case]—so let’s see if he comes back. He might. I’m a big fan of Johnny. I think he’s an amazing actor, I think he did a fantastic job.”
