Khan steps on Khan’s red carpet over sexual assault festival Johnny Depp domestic violence controversy
“Do you really think Khan is a festival of sex offenders?” (Executive Chairman Thierry Fremo)
Hollywood star Johnny Depp (60) announced his splendid comeback at the 76th Cannes Film Festival after overcoming controversy over domestic violence with his ex-wife Amber Heard, who caused a stir around the world.
Johnny Depp stepped on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival at 7 p.m. on the 16th (local time) to attend the screening of the festival’s opening film “Jan Duvari” at the Cannes Lumiere Grand Theater in France.
Johnny Depp’s return film, “Jan Du Bari,” tells the story of Mrs. Du Bari, a working-class government who was the lover of Louis XV. Johnny Depp played Louis XV and director and actor Maiwen played Mrs. Dubari.

As “Zan Du Bari” was selected as the opening film, there was also considerable controversy. Actor Adele Enel, who starred in the movie “Portrait of a Burning Woman,” pointed out, “The Cannes Film Festival celebrates sex offenders.” In fact, the Cannes Film Festival won the Palme d’Or in 2002 for director Roman Polanski, who was involved in child sex crimes.
In response, Thierry Fremo, chairman of the executive committee, said in a meeting ahead of the opening on the 15th, “Do you really think Khan is a festival for sex offenders?” and added, “I don’t know about Johnny Depp’s image in the United States. However, if Johnny Depp was banned from acting in the movie or if he was banned from the movie, we wouldn’t have talked about the movie here.”
Meanwhile, the Cannes International Film Festival will begin its 10-day journey from July 16 to the 27th. Seven Korean films were invited to non-competitive categories, including “Spider House” starring Song Kang-ho, “Hwaran” starring Song Joong-ki, and “Sleep” starring Lee Sun-kyun. Although it is not a Korean production, K-pop star Black Pink Jenny will also attend the Cannes Film Festival with the HBO series “The Idol” invited to the non-competitive category
