Amber Heard appears happy and relaxed as she chats to pals while book shopping in Madrid after relocating to the Spanish city… as ex Johnny Depp makes victorious Cannes return
Amber Heard was seen going about life as usual in her new home of Madrid while her ex-husband Johnny Depp took to the world’s stage in Cannes on Thursday.
The actress, 37, was seen in the Spanish capital, where she now lives with her daughter Oonagh Paige, two, chatting to pals and looking happy and relaxed.
Her outing comes after her ex Johnny, 59, was pictured at the 76th annual film festival in Cannes to mark the debut of his new movie Jeanne du Barry, during which he was given a hero’s welcome and even a lengthy standing ovation.
Following the couple’s legal dramas last year, Amber appears keen to move on as she took to the streets of Madrid for her day out.
As well as nabbing some books and a wall sign, the blonde beauty was also seen snapping selfies with delighted fans and chatting warmly.
In Cannes meanwhile, Amber’s ex-husband Johnny, who plays the role of King Louis XV in biographical drama Jeanne du Barry, was seen making his entrance to the movie’s premiere at the French film festival.
He was seen with the movie’s director Maïwenn in his entrance, and pictured taking selfies with fans and signing autographs.
Amber was seen shortly after DailyMail.com reported earlier this month that she has retreated from the bustle of Hollywood – in the wake of her ex-husband’s mostly successful defamation trial against her in Virginia last year.
Now, she has set up camp in a home just outside Madrid with her daughter. But it’s unclear if or when she attempt to make her wake back to Hollywood and to restart her acting career.
Amber announced that she had welcomed Oonagh into her life via surrogacy through a post that was shared on her Instagram account in July of 2021.
The actress wrote a lengthy message in her post’s caption where she revealed that her daughter, whose father has not been publicly revealed, had arrived that April.
She also also expressed her thoughts about parenthood in the statement, which partially read: ‘I hope we arrive at a point in which it’s normalized to not want a ring in order to have a crib.’
Heard’s daughter was born a year before the much-publicized legal case which centered on allegations of defamation that were made by both the actress and her former husband.
The pair were married from 2015 until 2017, and the Pineapple Express actress alleged that the Pirates Of The Caribbean star had been physically abusive over the course of their marriage, which he denied.
Heard also had an op-ed published by The Washington Post in 2018, in which she outlined how she felt as if speaking out about the alleged abuse she suffered during her marriage negatively affected her career.
The performer went on to file suit against News Group Newspapers for printing various allegations about his marriage through The Sun in 2020, although he ultimately lost his case.
