Following a long acting hiatus and a highly publicised court case agains his ex-wife Amber Heard, 60 year old Johnny Depp is making comeback after comeback – and one of them paid off heftily.
The Pirates of The Caribbean actor has just been featured in a new commercial for the Dior fragrance Sauvage called ‘The Call Of The Blazing Sun’.
His paycheck? It is estimated that Depp was paid a whopping $20 million to once again be the face of the brand.
Depp has just come off the winning ends of the Depp-Heard court case, with the jury awarding him $15 million in damages and Heard bagging $2 million.
But now, Dior are said to have signed a three year deal with the actor, worth more than $20 million, making it the biggest men’s fragrance deal ever reported.
To compare, Robert Pattinson made $12 million to serve as Dior Homme’s spokesperson, whereas Brad Pitt promoted Chanel No. 5 through $7 million.
It is understood that Depp’s deal could be the actor’s route back onto the big screen.
