‘I have no doubt!’ Johnny Depp’s co-star Eva Green supports actor over Amber Heard trial | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

French actress Eva Green, 41, said Johnny Depp, 58, will “emerge” from the defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, 36, with his “wonderful heart revealed to the world”. The actress made the comments publicly via her Instagram page.

The Dark Shadows star shared a photograph of herself and Mr Depp at the film’s London premiere in 2012.

In the caption, she penned in view of her one million followers: “I have no doubt Johnny will emerge with his good name and wonderful heart revealed to the world.

“Life will be better than it ever was for him and his family.”

Mr Depp is suing Ms Heard for £38.2m ($50m) over an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in 2018.

The actor’s lawyers say the article falsely implies he physically and sexually abused her while they were in a relationship.

He has denied all accusations.

Ms Heard has countersued for $100 million, arguing that he smeared her by calling her a liar.

Her attorneys have argued that she told the truth and that her opinion was protected free speech under the US Constitution’s First Amendment.

Ms Barkin says that she was friends with Mr Depp before their relationship became sexual.

The actress testified that Mr Depp once “threw a wine bottle across the room” and she described him as a “jealous” and “controlling” man.

Mr Depp’s former agent, Tracy Jacobs, also gave evidence via video deposition.

She said that the actor turned up late to set on “virtually every movie” and that made people in the film industry “reluctant to use him”.

She testified that his “unprofessional behaviour” increased because of his use of drugs and alcohol.

The trial will resume on Monday.

It is set to conclude on May 27.

Bear replied: “Well, you know, we’re not announcing anything yet.

“So yeah, nothing official to say yet,” he added.

He went on to address the prospect of environment campaigners Harry and Meghan appearing on the show, which has previously seen the likes of former US president Barack Obama take on the elements.

Bear said: “That would be a great one and talk about stuff that, you know, the environment is so key.

“It’s very key for all of us.

“You know, not just young people, so that message is always front and centre for us and Running Wild anyway, because we live in these extremes.

Speaking about the celebrities on the show, Bear said: “We always get these great guests, we try not to jinx it beforehand by announcing them.

“But I think the reason we get these sorts of guests is that they don’t need the fame or the money.

“You know, they’re not there for that, they’re there for what the wild can give them,” he explained.

“You know, what challenge and what adventure can give them we should sort of pride you know, light in their eyes,” the explorer added.

Elsewhere in the interview, Bear admitted that it was “nerve-wracking” to launch his family festival for the first time since the Covid pandemic.

He said: “I think it’s been a pretty tough couple of years to launch a Festival and it was always a nerve wracking thing, but it had incredible support from so many people.

“I think families are hungry for an adventure type festival in a safe space where they can enjoy making music, making food and get access to fresh experiences and so many cool adventures.

Gone Wild Festival is on from 25 – 28 August. Tickets are available to buy here.

‘They call me anorexic and gaunt’ Megan McKenna hits back at trolls criticising her weight | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Megan McKenna, 29, says trolls have said “really nasty things” about her weight since she began her career in reality television. Megan has been in the public eye since 2015 when she appeared on MTV’s Ex On The Beach. Since then, she has starred in numerous other shows including Celebrity Big Brother, The Only Way Is Essex and X Factor: Celebrity.

Behind her TV persona, Megan has struggled with coeliac disease and a wheat allergy since she was a child.

This means that she cannot eat wheat or gluten or she could suffer a range of excruciating symptoms including stomach pain, diarrhoea and unexpected weight loss.

As a result of being one of the most famous reality stars in the country, Megan says the downside is that she is frequently faced with trolling on social media.

She told Express.co.uk: “They call me anorexic, skeletal and gaunt. There is a list of things… just really nasty things about my weight.

“I have openly spoken about the fact that I have bowel issues, so people should really lay off because they don’t know, I might be having a bad episode or a flare up and suffering a bit.  
“If I ever eat something that has wheat or gluten in it by accident, it can really affect me for weeks which affects my bowels and I lose weight.”

Megan says that the trolling “used to bother her” when she was younger, but now she has got to a point where she can “completely brush it off”.

After years of being unwell, doctors eventually diagnosed Megan with coeliac disease when she was 10 years old.

Megan has now decided to help others by releasing a gluten-free cookbook, Can You Make That Gluten-Free?

It features 80 recipes with everything from “starters to cakes, posh dinners and cheaper meals”.

Discussing the book, Megan explained: “I think people get so scared when you say ‘gluten-free’. 

“They think they have to eat something really plain and boring, but you can make everything gluten-free.”

Megan also proved her culinary skills when she took part in Celebrity MasterChef last year.

She amazed judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode with her gluten-free dishes and made it all the way to the final.
 
Megan stated: “One of the main reasons why I wanted to do that show was to prove to people that you can eat good food that is gluten-free.

“John and Gregg used to say that they would never be able to tell that it was gluten-free, and that was my aim, so I was so happy.”

Can You Make That Gluten-Free? By Megan McKenna is published by Hamlyn, £20.00, www.octopusbooks.co.uk

Serena, better known by her fans as Mammy Banter, said the show rang true to her because she also attended an all-girls Catholic school.
