Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are preparing to go head-to-head in court again as their $50 million defamation trial rages on. The bombshell case recently took a week break due to Judge Penney S. Azcarate having prior work obligations but is scheduled to resume on Monday, May 16.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor sued Heard in 2019 after she wrote an inflammatory op-ed claiming to be a victim of domestic violence, which Depp believes irreparably harmed his personal reputation and career opportunities.
Viewers around the world tuned in and watched the shocking court proceedings for the past few weeks, and many noticed several recurring quirks from the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory actor.
Scroll through the gallery below to see things fans have noticed about Johnny Depp's quirky habits in court.
Depp Carries A Personalized Notebook
Depp is regularly seen carrying around a small, black notebook with a personalized cover. The front appears to be made up of small drawings and handwriting — likely done by the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actor — cut out individually and pasted onto the cover. The letters spell out the hopeful phrase: "BUILT TO LAST".
Depp Doesn’t Look Amber Heard In The Eye
Throughout the ongoing defamation trial, Depp seemingly refuses to make eye contact with his estranged ex-wife, instead opting to keep his head down for most of the court proceedings. Heard, on the hand, has been frequently spotted staring directly at the Black Mass actor.
Depp Refers To Her As Ms. Heard
Depp tends to refer to the Aquaman actress as only "Ms. Heard" rather than by her first name, allegedly avoiding all appearances of affection or a level of comfort the use of a first name might imply. Inversely, Heard more often than not refers to Depp as "Johnny."
Depp Has A Sweet Tooth
The actor has notably been seen munching on a few different sweet treats including mints, gummy bears and jelly beans during the past two weeks of the trial.
