However, Depp has secured his first starring role in three years.

The 59-year-old is slated to take on the lead role in an independent French film titled Jeanne du Barry. This biographical drama portrays the story of Madame du Barry (Maïwenn, who also directs the film) and her romantic involvement with King Louis XV (portrayed by Depp).

The actor known for his role in Alice in Wonderland made a comeback on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, where the movie was showcased and received resounding applause from the audience.

According to Variety, he was met with thousands of fans enthusiastically shouting his name and chanting: "Johnny, Johnny, we support you."

According to reports, even a young woman cried while attempting to grab Depp's attention.

As Variety reported, Jeanne du Barry debuted at the festival and garnered praise, receiving a standing ovation of seven minutes from the audience.

The actor from What's Eating Gilbert Grape fought back tears as the audience in the South of France cheered him on for his portrayal of King Louis XV.

Depp acknowledged the audience from the balcony with a wave, clearly surprised by the reaction he received.

Fans of the actor took to social media to congratulate Depp on his comeback.
