Johnny Depp, fresh out of his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, surprised his fans with a short appearance at the 2022 MTV VMAs. Dressed as the show’s mascot- the iconic moon person, a hologram of the actor’s face was imposed on the suit that got the fans jumping of out their seats.
 
The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star while floating in the air joked that he needed work. This was the 59-year-old actor’s very first appearance on TV after he came as a guest on the Jimmy Kimmel Live talk show in 2017. Johnny Depp as a moon person digitally floated over the Prudential Center arena at the award show right after the crowd enjoyed the performances from Jack Harlow, Fergie, and Lizzo.

‘I needed the work’, jokes Johnny Depp

While digitally hovering over the 2022 MTV VMAs arena, Johnny Depp quipped, “And you know what? I needed the work.” The Hollywood biggie then made another cameo in the same avatar saying, “Hey VMAs, let’s get back to the f***ing music, shall we?” If this was not over, the actor made another appearance to offer his professional services.
 
Joking about the same, he stated, “I just want you guys to know that I’m available for birthdays, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, weddings, any ol’ thing you need…anything, you name it. So, oh, I’m also a dentist.” He shared the same video on his Instagram with close to 28 million followers and captioned it, “guess who?” On the personal front, Johnny Depp won a whopping $10 million in compensatory damages after winning the defamation trial against Amber Heard.  The jury also awarded Depp $5 million in punitive damages, although the judge reduced that penalty to $350K.
