Johnny Depp has won the Favorite Movie Icon People’s Choice Award again – actually for the fourteenth time. Not many people expected him to make an appearance at the ceremony, which held on the evening of January 18th .
The reason he may have stayed away? – Depp’s ongoing divorce from Amber Heard, the proceedings of which were only finalized last week.
Depp thanked his fans for their support during a difficult period for him in his acceptance speech. Albeit it began awkwardly, what the actor said was really humble and heartwarming.
“I came here for one reason tonight, and one reason only,” the 53-year-old actor began. “I came here for you. The people. Who, through whatever good times or bad, have stood by me. Have trusted me.”
