British actor Greg Ellis, who played Theodore Groves in Pirates of the Caribbean, is releasing a book called The Respondent: Exposing the Cartel of Family Law.
When writing it, the actor decided to rely not only on his own experience of divorce and battles for custody. Greg included Johnny Depp and Alec Baldwin’s stories about their high-profile divorce proceedings. Baldwin even wrote a foreword for this book.
Greg Ellis himself said that with his work he wanted to expose the “archaic and inhuman” court system with its “gender biases.”
Johnny Depp praised his co-star’s work, describing it as “both a daunting reminder and a necessary therapy for anyone going through the blame and trauma of today’s American divorce,” writes the Daily Mail.
Meanwhile, Depp’s litigation with his ex-wife Amber Heard has been going on for more than four years. The actress accused her husband of domestic violence, which is why he lost his role in “Fantastic Beasts” and the opportunity to return to the image of Captain Jack Sparrow.
The actor’s career is still ruined, despite the fact that later Amber was caught in a lie. Heard herself is not facing any punishment for perjury due to the expired statute of limitations.
