Johnny Depp Net Worth 2022: Amber Heard's Ex Still Have 'Substantial' Wealth?
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s respective net worth are under scrutiny as their legal battles continue. This has then seemingly led many individuals to wonder whether he still has substantial wealth these days.
Marca recently reported that the “Fantastic Beast” alum “lost an exorbitant $650 million” between 2003 and 2016. As stated, the actor’s “eccentric lifestyle” and vast “monthly expenses” were the reasons behind the massive losses.
But, even so, Depp still reportedly has a significant net worth. He is said to be worth around $100 million to $150 million in 2022.
Reports recalled that the 58-year-old celebrity began his career in Hollywood in the early ‘80s. Some of his early works include “Platoon” and “Nightmare on Elm Street.”
Johnny Depp’s rise to fame was said to have arrived when he worked on the series, “21 Jump Street.” He even previously told The Guardian that he was “broke” at the time, adding that he “did not want to do a television series.”
With the fame and success of the material, the veteran actor went on to star in several more film projects that led him further to stardom. These titles include “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,” “Donnie Brasco,” "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," and “Benny and Joon.”
Parade noted that Johnny Depp’s “greatest commercial success” was when he played the lead role of Captain Jack Sparrow in Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. He allegedly earned over $300 million for the five films.
Celebrity Net Worth claimed that the actor started with a $10 million salary for the first movie in the film franchise. The base amount of his payment increased in increments as he worked on the sequels.
The base salary does not reportedly include the additional payments that were “off the backend.” By the fifth installment’s release, he was said to have made over $90 million in total.
In 2015 and 2016, Johnny Depp topped Forbes’ list of the “most overpaid” actors in Hollywood. As noted, the box office returns were $2.80 for every $1 he received for payment. The year prior, the actor returned $1.20 for every dollar he was paid.
To date, the Willy Wonka actor is suing his former wife, Amber Heard for defamation. The $50 million lawsuit is still ongoing in Virginia, and it centers on the actress’s 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post.
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old celebrity, who was married to Depp from 2015 to 2016, has filed a $100 million countersuit. She is worth $8 million, reportedly including the $7 million pay-out from their divorce settlement.
