Johnny Depp is, allegedly, using Margot Robbie as his ticket back into the Hollywood A-list circle.
According to New Idea, Depp is wooing Margot Robbie by giving the Australian actress gifts and flowers. However, no concrete pieces of evidence can confirm that these hearsays are correct as of this writing.
Johnny Depp encouraging Margot Robbie to star in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise?
But an insider claimed that Depp has been pulling for Robbie to star in the female-lead spinoff of Pirates of the Caribbean.
“Margot can’t believe it. You know you’ve made it when Johnny Depp thinks you have the pull in Hollywood to get him a role. He’s sent her a bunch of black rose heads ‘from one pirate to another,” an unnamed source said, as per New Idea.
However, Gossip Cop busted the claims made by the tabloid. They said that the headline was misleading because it suggests that Depp is wooing Robbie romantically. But what the actor is, allegedly, doing is he’s wooing the actress professionally.
The rumor-debunking site said that it is unlikely for Robbie to star in the franchise alongside Depp because of her busy schedule.
Margot Robbie rumors
New Idea has been publishing dubious stories about Robbie for years. In 2018, the tabloid claimed that Jennifer Lawrence was jealous of the Australian actress.
Earlier this year, the tabloid claimed that Robbie requested not to be seated next to Brad Pitt at the Golden Globes ceremony. However, both claims made by the tabloids are untrue.
There was no jealousy between Lawrence and Robbie. And the actress didn’t make such a request at the awards show.
Johnny Depp, Amber Heard domestic violence case
Meanwhile, Depp is still single after his divorce from Amber Heard. In fact, it is unclear when would go back to the dating scene because he’s busy with his ongoing court hearing.
The Edward Scissorhands actor sued The Sun’s publisher, NGN, and editor Dan Wootton for calling him a wife-beater in their article. The accusations that Depp beats his wives came after Heard penned an op-ed piece for The Washington Post.
Heard said that she’s a victim of domestic violence in the op-ed piece. The Aquaman actress did not directly mention Depp’s name in her article but she just divorced the actor when she wrote it.
Depp and Heard have been seeing each other in court. But they have not spoken to each other.
As for Margot Robbie, the actress is busy supporting the Black Lives Matter movement following the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
