We see celebrities who we admire as "friends". We support their work, we cheer them on, and we ardently defend them when someone makes an accusation against them. In the eyes of millions of people, Johnny Depp is a hero, an onscreen buddy, and who wants to believe that your best film buddy abused his wife?
I can't believe I'm writing this about Johnny Depp, one of the coolest actors to ever grace the screen: but what the hell happened to him? He used to be untouchable, but now he's just unrecognizable. When I picture Depp now, he's either wearing a brightly coloured hat, grown a moustache, or he's donned some ridiculous outfit and is traipsing across the screen. A lot of the time, it's all three, and that's not an exaggeration.
