On Wednesday, the jury in the Fairfax, Virginia, unanimously ruled in favor of the Pirates of the Caribbean star after he attempted to sue his ex-wife for $50 million. Depp was seeking damages over comments Heard had made in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post.

Heard, 36, referred to herself as a "public figure representing domestic abuse" in the op-ed, and despite not mentioning Depp by name, his attorneys argued that the comments were about the Pirates of the Caribbean star and resulted in him losing work.

Watch the moment the verdict was revealed in court:

After reportedly deliberating for around 12 hours over three days, the court ruled that Depp, 58, was entitled to $10 million in compensatory damages and punitive damages of $5 million. However, per Virginia state law, the punitive damages were reduced to $350,000.

Throughout the trial, fans of either party have been taking to social media to voice their support for the stars. But considering Depp's popularity on social media and the result of the case, fans may be surprised to learn that Depp actually has fewer films in production than Heard.

Per IMDb, Depp has not acted in a movie since 2020 Minamata, and only has one movie in production.

The 58-year-old actor will appear as Louis XV in Maïwenn's Jeanne du Barry. However, fans may be happy to hear that he has also provided his voice for a character called Johnny Puff for the children's television show Puffins.

Meanwhile, Heard is set to star in three movies that are currently in production.

Heard is set to star in the upcoming thriller, In The Fire, which is currently in post-production and does not have a release date.

Of course, Heard is also set to star in the upcoming DC movie, Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom. Amid the high-profile defamation trial, a petition to have Heard removed from the movie has amassed more than 4 million signatures.

Amid the trial, Heard testified that she said that she had performed a "very pared-down version" of her role for the Aquaman sequel.

"I fought really hard to stay in the movie," she said on the stand, adding: "They didn't want to include me in the film." ("They" presumably referring to the movie's officials.)

Heard added: "I was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it that depicted my character and another character - without giving any spoilers away - two characters fighting with one another.

"They basically took a bunch out of my role. They just removed a bunch out."
