Johnny Depp wore blindfold and red lip tint for first movie role since winning highly publicised defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
The Pirates of The Caribbean star looks unrecognisable as he dons a blonde wig, red lip tint and 18th-century clothing to bring the character of King Louis XV to life for his debut French feature.
The 59-year-old actor takes on the role of King Louis XV in French director Maïwenn Le Besco's historical love story Jeanne du Barry, in which the female director will also co-star alongside Depp.
Following the verdict being delivered on June 1, Depp took to Instagram to share a statement in which he thanked his fans for their support and credited the jury for "giving me my life back".
A number of celebrities, including Paris Hilton and Jennifer Aniston, quickly liked Depp's celebratory post - with publisher Buzzfeed compiling a record of all the famous names amongst the now-almost 20million 'likes' on June 2.
In the wake of unsealed court documents being released earlier this month, few showbiz stars, including Sophie Turner and model Bella Hadid - have seemingly removed their 'like' from Johnny Depp's victory Instagram post.
