I don't think money is the motivation for JD, I find it unlikely he wins any financial damages out of this. But he may (or may not) have improved his reputation to the extent that he can get major future roles. His legal strategy has been mostly a very good PR strategy, to get social media attention and clear his name in the industry and among his fans. We'll see in the next few years if he's able to get his career back.Yeah, this was my thought from day 1 but money isn't the biggest motivation here.
This is more about coming away with a positive image and I think the trial has already
improved things for Depp. Time will tell how this affects their careers.
Yeah AH had to one-up JD so she sued for 2x the amount Even though her own sum of lost earnings wouldn't amount to $100 million.Yeah no doubt. Working out loss of income is highly speculative.
I think AH’s countersue of $100 goes to show how her mentality works - like a bully. If someone does something to me, I am going to double down and do it twice as much to them. I don’t think she s been given best legal advice but also she probably doesn’t listen to her legal team either. They probably told her not to mention Kate Moss yet she still did.
It would be wonderful if she release the lawyers and somehow the lawyers on her side able to do a tell-all story. I think a lot of the **** we hear about it rumours might be quite juicy in the background. Does that further affirm public opinion about her or supports her side of stories - who knows.
It's a PR mistake. She will lose the countersue (even though it wasn't dismissed outright) and this does not help her reputation. Her lawyers are fine though, apart from a couple of smaller mistakes and despite social media mockery their legal strategy has been exactly what you'd expect in defamation cases.
Her long-term career is over regardless of legal outcomes. Even if she doesn't lose her role in Aquaman 2, nobody is going to pick her for another big budget role again and they will likely get rid of the character (or recast her) in sequels and other DCEU movies. But I also think this will be the case for JD. Bringing him on is just an unnecessary risk so studios will probably take a pass on him for new big budget projects.It's already over for AH, all the videos and sound clips make her look unhinged and a crazy bitch. No one is going to touch that with a bargepole. The best she can hope for is tiny budget straight to streaming indy movies after a few years, if she's lucky.
I think Depp will take a few year's break and probably come back with a big fanfare in a big budget movie
