Johnny Depp’s career continues to flourish after his $50 million defamation trial against Amber Heard. The actor clinched a 7-figure deal with Dior, reviving his original campaign from 2015.
Depp’s popularity continued to soar after the courtroom drama unfolded for a grueling 6 weeks. Man fans proved their unwavering love and support for Depp by lining up in front of the court in Fairfax, Virginia, for hours, just to catch a glimpse of him. Dior seems to have taken notice and managed to secure Depp for a multi-year deal that sees his return as the face of the fragrance, according to TMZ.
Sources close to the deal revealed that Depp will be the star of upcoming ads for Dior’s Sauvage men’s cologne, according to TMZ. The report indicates the massive contract has already been inked with Depp’s signature, and fans are officially about to see a whole lot more of his famous face, according to TMZ.

It appears that Dior worked diligently to secure Depp’s involvement in their campaign. Upper level representatives from Dior reportedly attended Depp’s live concert with Jeff Beck in Paris alongside fashion photographer Greg Williams.
Depp reportedly took part in a photo shoot with Williams before and after his musical performance, and the content is reportedly going to be included in Dior’s upcoming advertisements, according to TMZ. Depp is featured playing a guitar in the original Sauvage campaign. (RELATED: Johnny Depp’s Artwork Sells Out In Hours For $3.6 Million)
Dior first featured Depp in their Sauvage cologne ads in 2015, but ceased the rotation of these commercials when Heard began making allegations of abuse against Depp. There was a resurgence of the commercials in June 2022. They were shown on FOX during prime-time shortly after Depp was victorious in his legal suit against Heard, according to TMZ.
