Johnny Depp has said he "felt bad" for author JK Rowling after the backlash she received for supporting his casting in the 'Fantastic Beasts' film series.
In December, Rowling said she was "genuinely happy" about Depp's casting, despite accusations of domestic violence by his ex-wife Amber Heard."JK has seen the evidence and therefore knows I was falsely accused," Depp said."That's why she has publicly supported me. She doesn't take things lightly."He continued: "She would not stand up if she didn't know the truth."
Heard filed for divorce from the actor after 15 months of marriage in May 2016.Her filing alleged a history of abuse throughout the relationship, which the actor has denied.
Depp made a fleeting appearance as the wizard Grindelwald in the first' Fantastic Beasts' film in 2016, but will play a much larger part in 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald', which is due for release in November.Some fans threatened to boycott the sequel because of his role.
