Johnny Depp Stars in First Dior Sauvage Commercial Since Amber Heard Trial – Johnny Depp returns as the face for Dior’s Sauvage fragrance, starring in a fresh commercial for the brand. This marks his inaugural endorsement of the fragrance since his legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard in 2022.
In the ad, Depp recites poetry while wearing an all-black ensemble. “An eagle cries as it circles its prey. The blazing sun high in the ozone blue sky. A trail of cold wind stirs a land of dry wood and stone,” he states, before concluding, “This is the call of Sauvage Eau.”

Depp reportedly signed a three-year deal with Dior “at upwards of $20 million,” according to Variety. The outlet said that the partnership marked the largest men’s fragrance deal in history. Dior celebrated Depp’s latest spot with a post on Instagram, writing alongside a still of the actor: “Bold and powerful, in his essence, his truth, @JohnnyDepp embodies the soul of Sauvage.”
Depp’s comeback as a Dior spokesperson occurred over a year after his defamation trial against 37-year-old Heard. In the trial, a seven-member jury, comprising five men and two women, found both Depp and Heard responsible for defamation but largely favored the Pirates of the Caribbean star. He received a $10.35 million damages award, while the Aquaman actress was granted $2 million.
In recent times, Depp spent the summer on tour with his band, The Hollywood Vampires, which includes Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, and Tommy Henriksen. Additionally, he made a return to the big screen at the Cannes Film Festival in May, featuring in the French-language film Jeanne Du Barry, where he portrayed King Louis XV.
Coming up, Depp is slated to direct the upcoming movie Modi, which is based on the play Modigliani by Dennis McIntyre. “He’s 60. He’s on tour. He’s directing a movie. He can’t do what he was doing at 20 years old,” a source told a news outlet in June of the actor. “He’s taking care of himself. Everything in moderation.”
