Johnny Depp 's friendship with lifelong pal Paul Bettany has caused fans to ask questions after a court were read out chilling texts between the Pirates of the Caribbean and the Avengers star.
Johnny Depp and Paul Bettany's friendship has been blown-up in the spotlight after chilling texts between the two were read out to a court room this week.
The texts were read made public on Wednesday, July 8, during the second day of Depp's court case at London's High Court, where he is giving evidence in his libel trial against News Group Newspapers and its executive editor Dan Wotton over a story published in The Sun in 2018.
In the story, the Pirates of the Caribbean star was labelled a "wife beater" in the publication's headline - which he strongly denies.
The courtroom, which Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard sat in, heard how Depp messaged Avengers actor Paul to discuss his former wife, and the alleged texts have shocked the showbiz world.
But how did the pair become friends? What do they do together? Daily Star Online has taken a look in the pair's lifelong bromance.
There is a stigma in Los Angeles that it is harder to make friends as you age but for two Hollywood stars, that simply was not the case.
For Johnny and Paul it was apparently love at first sight as the pair immediately sparked up a bromance.
They met while filming The Tourist in Venice in 2010 and Paul says it was love from first sight.
During press for their most recent film together, Transendence in 2014, Paul spilled on the moment they released they would be best friends for life to a publication called Toronoto Sun..
"Johnny and I met across a crowded room, and I just had a feeling we would be lifelong friends. And that transpired," says Bettany.
"It was on the set of The Tourist in Venice. I looked at him and he looked at me, and we haven’t stopped laughing since."
And funnily enough in the artificial intelligence thriller Transendence, Bettany plays the best-friend colleague of the neuroscientist played by Depp, whose consciousness is preserved on the Net after he dies.
