(M) “JOHNNY DEPP: HOLLYWOOD CAN’T ‘BOYCOTT’ ME, BUT HERE’S WHY I’M NOT SWEATING IT.”

The selection of Jeanne du Barry raised eyebrows from the moment it was announced in April, and the questions continued as the festival began this week.

At the opening press conference, the festival’s director, Thierry Frémaux, defended the choice. “I don’t know about the image of Johnny Depp in the US,” he said. “I care about Johnny Depp as an actor.”

At the jury press conference, jury member Brie Larson, who has been an advocate for abuse survivors, was asked about her stance on the film’s inclusion. “You’ll see, I guess, if I see it. And I don’t know how I’ll feel about it if I do,” she said.

On Wednesday, it was finally time for Depp to face the press, along with his cast and French director Maïwenn, who helmed the historical drama.

But anticlimactically, the press conference was delayed by about 25 minutes, and eventually Maïwenn and the cast took the stage without Depp.

The director insisted he would join them soon.
