Johnny Depp, 60, Cuts His Long Hair after ‘Looking Unhealthy’ for a While, Igniting Stir


Johnny Depp’s striking new hairstyle, unveiled at the London premiere of “Jeanne du Barry,” has ignited a whirlwind of reactions on social media, marking a dramatic departure from his iconic look. Some noted his healthier appearance compared to his past looks.

At the London premiere of “Jeanne du Barry,” Johnny Depp dazzled netizens with a dramatic new look reminiscent of his early career. He debuted a short haircut, a departure from his usual long, tousled locks.

Depp’s new look sparked a flurry of reactions on social media as netizens quickly voiced their opinions. A fan noted, “He has been looking unhealthy for awhile. I’m glad he’s past that now.” Another reacted, “He looks so much better with short hair. It makes him much younger.”

The sentiments were further reinforced by others who felt the change was significantly positive. A fan remarked “He looks great, 10 years younger,” while another echoed, “Looking sharp.” One user commented, “About time he cleaned up his act.”

The film marks one of Depp’s major film comebacks since his 2022 defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard. His new hairstyle has sparked fan discussions, some linking it to the aftermath of their publicized legal battle.

A critic commented, “He looks like he hasn’t washed his hair since the trial,” while one unconvinced netizen said, “He’s not aged well but I guess his lifestyle shows that. He was so good-looking, shame.”

Meanwhile, another offered a mix of critique and support, stating, “Hey, he’s got back to his base normal. After living that mess of a woman. Give him a break.” Meanwhile, many still expressed optimism about Depp’s comeback.

The actor’s recent transformation was for his role as King Louis XV in “Jeanne du Barry,” directed by Maïwenn, who also stars alongside Depp. Despite his initial reluctance to star in the film, he felt fortunate to receive the opportunity to play the French royal.

Depp said, “I feel very lucky to have been [offered the role] – strangely, oddly, perversely lucky.” While he revives a French monarch on screen, he has set his sights off-screen on a historic $4 million castle in Turin, Italy, which has stirred some local controversy.

Renzo Galletto, the mayor of Montaldo Dora, expressed reservations about the Hollywood star owning this property. “A celebrity buying a historic monument like the Montalto Dora castle would bring a lot of attention to the area, but we’re not sure if it would be the right ‘economic synergy’ for the community,” he said.

As Depp’s personal tastes evolve, from eclectic property acquisitions to diverse style changes, his adoption of Comanche-inspired looks and move to the English countryside sparks discussions among netizens.

These sentiments reflect a broader discussion on aging, celebrity culture, and the expectations placed upon public figures to remain unchanged despite the passage of time.

Since his legal feud with Heard, Depp’s shifted focus to music, minimizing screen time. Fans were surprised by a photo of the actor in Boston, showing him with a cane, wearing baggy trousers, a half-buttoned flannel shirt, and a matching coat.

Depp also accessorized with layers of necklaces, blue sunglasses, and a navy blue hat. Some fans couldn’t believe it was him and left comments on the post. “He looks so different!” one person said. Meanwhile, another commented, “He looks rough!”

As part of their local tour, the actor-turned-musician spent a few days in Boston with his band, Hollywood Vampires. During the last week of May, the band had to reschedule some tour dates due to Depp’s sustained injury.

At that time, Depp had just finished filming “The Lone Ranger” and did several dangerous stunts himself. Fortunately, he did not sustain serious injuries. He again talked about aging in 2018 and claimed he was unbothered by his looks and focused on feeling young.

Continuing the trend of attracting public attention, Depp’s daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, also captured the public’s curiosity. In December 2023, she was spotted enjoying a night out, filled with public displays of affection, with her girlfriend, Danielle Balbuena, better known as 070 Shake.
