Clip Shows Johnny Depp Change Since Trial Started: 'Getting His Glow Back'

A clip purporting to show Johnny Depp getting his "glow" back has gone viral as the actor's court battle with ex-wife Amber Heard comes to an end.

Fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor have consistently shown their support on social media throughout the trial with several moments from the courtroom going viral over the past month.

Depp 58, sued his ex-wife Heard for defamation over an op-ed published by The Washington Post in 2018, in which she said she was a victim of domestic abuse. While Heard didn't name her ex-husband in the piece, his legal team has argued it was obvious she was referring to him. Heard, meanwhile, has countersued for $100 million for nuisance.

TikTok user Louise Pugsley shared a compilation of clips of Depp from the beginning of the trial up until now with the caption: "Depp Trial Day 1 to 22. Johnny getting his glow back."

The video had clocked up more than 800,000 views on TikTok at the time of writing.

"He is more confident now!! He got his truth out there and we his relatives are behind him," reads one comment.

While another added: "I feel like his legal team just really has his back. you can tell they truly support him and have some genuine feels."

Another comment reads: "the way he suddenly started wearing his hair back, like he realized he didn't have to hide his face."

Depp's team scored another victory in court yesterday when Kate Moss cleared up the rumor that the actor once pushed her down a flight of stairs when they were dating.

"No he never pushed me, kicked me, or threw me down any stairs," Moss said during questioning from Depp's legal team.

Moss, 48, dated Depp in the 1990s and her testimony today as a rebuttal witness had been highly anticipated after Heard previously mentioned the English model during her testimony earlier this month.

On May 5, Heard cited Depp's earlier relationship with Moss and an unverified rumor that Depp had once pushed Moss down a flight of stairs.

"I don't hesitate and wait—I instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs," Heard said at the time.

Depp later took the stand himself and was asked about the staircase incident as well. He once again recalled the incident in Jamaica as Moss had recalled it, and then said he told Heard about it.

"Miss Heard took the story and turned it into a very ugly incident, all in her mind," Depp testified. "There was never a moment where I pushed Kate down any set of stairs, yet she's spewed this three times before.

"That's the whole story. But then the rumor of it, I had never heard a rumor of that before Miss Heard grabbed hold of it. It's like that, I'm sorry."
