The ongoing trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has been making the headlines for weeks now. With no end in sight, the two celebrities are said to have spent millions of dollars on their legal defence and PR. While we are yet to find out how much exactly Depp and Heard have been spending on their defence, here’s a look at their net worth to see what’s helping in signing the cheques.
Both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are A-list Hollywood celebrities and hence multi-millionaires by default. However, there’s a stark difference between how much each of them are individually worth. According to celebritynetworth.com, Depp is said to be worth around $100 million. In comparison, Amber Heard is reported to be worth around $8 million.
Thanks to an early career start and a series of successful franchises in his portfolio, Depp is rumoured to charge around $20 million per film, with 20 per cent of the back end from the film’s earnings. This has helped the 58-year old in amassing a fortune of $650 million between 2003 to 2016.
On the other hand, Heard’s career trajectory hasn’t been as successful as Depp’s. Despite appearing in movies like Friday Night Lights, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane and Pineapple Express, her big role came as Mera in the DC Extended Universe’s Aquaman franchise in 2018. The actress was rumoured to be paid around $5 million for the first Aquaman movie, and $10 million for the sequel.
Johnny Depp started his own production company back in 2004 with his sister, Christi Dembrowski. Called ‘Infinitum Nihil,’ the company has produced movies like The Rum Diary and Hugo over the years. In terms of property, Depp is said to have multiple houses spread across the globe.
The highlight of which includes a massive 7,430 square feet 8-bedroom home in the Hollywood Hills which he bought for $1.8 million back in 1995. The 58-year old also once owned an entire French village called “Le Plan-de-la-Tour,” which was built in 1812. It is reported that Depp had spent an additional $10 million on restoring the old stone buildings.
Since 1995, Depp has owned a massive home in the Hollywood Hills which he bought for $1.8 million at the time. The main house is 7,430 square feet with eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.
Some of Depp’s other properties include a three-island property in the Bahamas purchased for $5.35 million and five more houses in Hollywood Hills, collectively worth $19 million. Depp is said to spend $3,50,000 monthly on staff, wine and supplies.
Meanwhile not much is known about Amber Heard’s individual assets. Although, there have been claims of the actress being in a “dire financial situation” before the trial began. The 36-year old is said to have been struggling to pay the donation pledge of $3.5 million to ACLU.
Johnny Depp has built quite a garage for himself, which includes a 1959 Corvette, and a 2015 Range Rover both worth over $54,000. He also owns a Rolls Royce Wraith, which is rumoured to cost around $3.28 million. At one point, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor also owned a massive yacht worth around $22 million, which he then sold to author J.K. Rowling in 2016.
Amber Heard, on the other hand, is reported to own an impressive collection as well. The Aquaman actress owns a Vintage Dodge Charger RT, Dodge Journey, Tesla Model S, Range Rover Sport, a 1968 Ford Mustang and a 1967 Mercedes 250SL.
