Helena Bonham Carter recently expressed her views on pop culture and social criticism in an interview. She also offered her support for Johnny Depp, her co-star, and friend.
In response to canceling culture and how it has impacted some of her colleagues in the business, Helena Bonham Carter is expressing her views clearly.
As a result of Johnny Depp’s victory in the defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard, she defended her Sweeney Todd co-star and friend in a statement.
The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Tim Burton, a director, is acquainted with both actors and frequently works with them.
The British actor responded, “Oh, I believe he’s absolutely vindicated,” when asked if Johnny Depp would have a shot at a comeback in Hollywood following accusations of domestic abuse. He seemed to be doing well right now. Absolutely fine.
Helena weighed in on cancel culture by asking, “Do you prohibit a genius for their sexual practices? Millions of individuals would be disqualified if you looked deeply enough at their private lives. No one may be banned. I detest the cancel culture.
It’s grown fairly frenzied, and there’s a sort of witch-hunt and a lack of empathy,” she remarked. The actor made reference to Johnny Depp’s well-known defamation trial, which occurred earlier this year against ex-wife Amber Heard.
In that case, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor sued Aquaman’s star, claiming she had defamed him in a 2018 op-ed on domestic abuse.
Johnny Depp received more than $10 million in compensation, while Amber Heard later prevailed in one of her defamation counterclaims and received $2 million.
Amber Heard wanted to “get on the bandwagon” and “be the poster girl for” when Helena questioned whether this situation was an instance of the “pendulum of #MeToo swinging back.”
