Actress Helena Bonham Carter has defended Johnny Depp and JK Rowling, who she sees as victims of “some sort of witch hunt”.

British actress Helena Bonham Carter (56) is causing a stir with new interview statements. “The Sunday Times” asked the twice Oscar-nominated actress about the controversial stars Johnny Depp (59) and JK Rowling (57), and in a broader sense about cancellation culture, which is generally understood that a person seeks after an alleged or actual misconduct was excluded from public life, that is to say cancelled.

According to Bonham Carter, her former co-star Depp is “completely redeemed” after his victory in the defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard (36). According to Bonham Carter, “Harry Potter” inventor Rowling has been “hunted” by public opinion. The actress literally declared, “I hate cancellation culture.”

Helena Bonham Carter calls Amber Heard a ‘free rider’

Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard accused the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star of domestic violence in a sensational trial, but the Virginia jury largely did not believe her. Asked by The Sunday Times whether the outcome of the trial would mark the end of the #MeToo movement, Bonham Carter said: “My view is that [Heard] is a free rider. That’s the problem with these things – that people jump on the bandwagon because it’s the trend and to be the poster child for it.”

Bonham Carter and Heard’s ex-husband Depp have been in front of the camera several times – in films such as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, “Dark Shadows” and “Alice in Wonderland”, all of which Bonham Carter’s ex. -man Tim Burton (64) performed. Depp is also the godfather to Burton and Bonham Carter’s two children together.

JK Rowling ‘is allowed to have her opinion’

“Harry Potter” author JK Rowling has been criticized for her anti-trans statements. Along with Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, the stars of the “Harry Potter” films have publicly criticized Rowling over this. Actress Bonham Carter said: “It’s horrible, a load of bullshit. I think she’s been hunted.”

Rowling tried to justify her statements to some extent by the fact that she herself had been a victim of domestic and sexual violence in the past. Bonham Carter said: “[J.K. Rowling] She is allowed to have her own opinion, especially if she has been abused.” According to the actress, who played in front of the camera as Bellatrix Lestrange in four “Harry Potter” films, people’s past and past pain must be respected.

Helena Bonham Carter criticizes cancel culture in general

According to Bonham Carter, the aforementioned “Harry Potter” stars Radcliffe, Watson and Grint have publicly spoken out against Rowling because they wanted to protect their “own fan base and generation.” The actress also spoke out against cancellation culture in general. It became “very hysterical”. Bonham Carter also speaks of “a kind of witch hunt and a lack of understanding”. She laments “people’s willingness to judge” and continues: “You don’t all have to agree on everything – that would be crazy and boring.”
