Is Johnny Depp right or left-handed?
However, confusion may arise because the Hollywood star has used his left hand to write when fulfilling roles in movies. As per IMDb, when starring in 1993 film Benny & Joon, Depp used his left hand to make it seem as though he was an inexperienced writer.
The trivia page reads: “Johnny Depp used his left hand in the writing sequence. Being right handed himself, using his left hand gave off the squiggly impressions of a child’s writing.”
When will the Depp-Heard case end?
The case was scheduled to come to an end on Thursday, 19 May but this date has been extended.
The proceedings are now set to conclude on Friday, 27 May.
For now, the case is set to continue.
