Johnny Depp poses behind bars while accepting Camerimage Festival prize

The image was taken in the Bahamas over the weekend and it sees the Pirates of the Caribbean star showing off his newly-acquired trophy for Actor With Unique Visual Sensitivity, awarded by the Cameraimage Festival in Poland.

Just weeks after losing his libel battle against bosses at The Sun newspaper over an 2018 article calling him a "wife beater" in reference to allegations of domestic abuse made by his now ex-wife Amber Heard, the Pirates of the Caribbean star shared the freakish snap via Camerimage's official social media accounts.

In the movie, the star plays war photographer W. Eugene Smith, who travels to Japan to document the devastating effects of mercury poisoning in coastal communities in the 1970s.

Depp did not collect the award in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

EnergaCamerimage wrote, in a prior post announcing Depp's award, that he is "one of the most versatile performers of modern cinema". "It was a joy to come to work every morning, since we never quite knew what was going to happen".

Warner Bros. has now officially confirmed that Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One) has signed on to replace Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald in the third Fantastic Beasts movie.

Depp was recently removed from the Fantastic Beasts franchise by Warner Bros after he lost his libel case against the United Kingdom newspaper The Sun for referring to him as a "wife-beater". The Sun alleged that Depp physically abused his now ex-wife Amber Heard, which Depp denies.

He added of his legal judgement, "The surreal judgement of the court in the United Kingdom will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal".

Depp wrote: "My resolve remains strong and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false".
