Penelope Cruz has come out in support of Johnny Depp
Here’s what Penelope Cruz wrote in the deposition which was obtained by The Blast:
I met Johnny when I was 19 years old. He was in Madrid and Pedro Almodovar introduced him to me. The only sentences I knew how to say in English at that time were, ‘how are you’ and ‘I want to work with Johnny Depp.’
Many years have passed and I have not only made 3 movies with him, but I also count on him as a great friend. I’ve always been impressed by his kindness, his brilliant mind, his talent, and his peculiar sense of humor.
I’ve seen Johnny in so many situations and he is always kind to everyone around. He is one of the most generous people I know.

Cruz then went on to add how Depp even helped her and her husband whilst she was pregnant with their son, Leo Encinas Cruz.
During six months of my first pregnancy, I spent every single day with him while we shot Pirates of the Caribbean. My husband and I will never forget the sweetness, protection, and kindness he treated me with during every single step of that process.
