Salma Hayek welcomes Johnny Depp to Instagram with HOT ‘90s photo, sparks rumors of siding against Amber Heard
In the throwback snap from 1995, the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor is seen holding a drink as he posed beside Hayek, who was wearing a white dress with a plunging neckline
Salma Hayek welcomed Johnny Depp to Instagram by sharing a sexy throwback photo of the both of them on her own social media page on Thursday, May 7.
The photo in question was clicked at Frank Sinatra's 80th birthday bash back in 1995. In the snap, the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor is seen holding a drink as he posed beside Hayek, who was wearing a white dress with a plunging neckline. She also added a second picture in the same post, which was the poster of the movie they starred in together, 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico,' seemingly paying tribute to that time in their lives.
"Welcome @johnnydepp to the Instagram madness! Bienvenido Johnny Depp a Instagram! #tbt" she wrote in the caption of the post.
Fans were delighted to see the pair together, even if it was in an old picture. "Ah Desperado and Once upon a time in Mexico brings back memories when I first crush on you Salma" one fan wrote, while another said, "two of the most beautiful people ever."
A third fan got greedy, saying, "We need a pic of you, Johnny and @penelopecruzoficial all together would be iconic"
Although Hayek has not publicly commented on the accusations-filled battle going on between Depp and his ex-wife, Amber Heard, who has previously accused the actor of domestic abuse and has recently had the same allegation flipped on her, media outlets started speculating whether the 'Frida' actress' post silently hinted at the fact that she was taking Depp's side in the controversy against Heard.
Meanwhile, within hours of joining Instagram on April 16, Depp racked up millions of followers after he shared an 8-minute-long video about coronavirus as well as the announcement of a cover of John Lennon’s 1970 song 'Isolation' as his first post. "I don't think I've really ever felt any particular reason to [join social media] until now. Now is the time to open up a dialogue, as the threat of this invisible enemy has already caused immeasurable tragedies and damage to people's lives," he said in the video.
Amid all the talk of the pandemic, Depp also discussed his own musical leanings, specifically that he has been recording an album over the past few years with former Yardbirds guitarist and one of his “all-time guitar heroes,” Jeff Beck, and that's when he announced released their cover of 'Isolation'.
“The profundity of his lyrics seem to Jeff and me especially fitting for what’s happening right now. The song’s about isolation, fear, and the existential risk to our world, so we wanted to give the song to you,” the actor offered. “We truly both hope in our own little way, it helps you get through these unusual times that we’re experiencing, even if it just helps to pass the time as we endure isolation together.
After he urged his fans and followers to "care for one another" and get creative as the world battles the COVID-19 outbreak, Depp hinted at the ongoing feud with his former wife. "On a more personal note, thank you all for your kindness, your unwavering support and your strength over these years," he said at the end of the video.
