Watch: Johnny Depp reportedly signs new seven-figure deal with Dior
Johnny Depp has returned as the face of Dior’s Sauvage scent after winning his defamation suit against ex-wife Amber Heard.
The French fashion house shared a series of photos to Instagram on Monday, featuring monotone stills of johnny–depp/” data-ylk=”slk:the actor and musician” class=”link “the actor and musician, 59, before he joined Jeff Beck on stage in Paris, as well as a video of him talking about the cologne.
Depp began his collaboration with Dior back in 2015 and continued it throughout his divorce from Amber Heard. Dior paused airing the Sauvage commercial on TV when accusations of domestic violence circulated but it doesn’t seem that the brand ever completely dropped the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
At the time, the move was seen as controversial by some, with calls from the public for Depp to be removed as a Dior ambassador. But since his win at the defamation trial against Heard in the US in June, the actor’s now firmly back in the Dior fold and his ads are airing again. There are reports swirling that he’s signed a seven-figure deal with the luxury label.
Fans have largely responded positively to the partnership’s revival. “This is awesome news!” commented one Instagram user one of posts shared by Dior Beauty.
Others commented, “Good to see Johnny back!”, “What a come back story!” and “we love you forever”.
Another said, “Well Johnny, it’s wonderful to see you have found your inner tranquility. It’s all in your smile! Welcome back beautiful man!”
