    We should all remember that there are Dirty Empaths, and we’re imperfect. It’s quite possible he is an empath, but is normal still a possibility?

      Listening to today’s videos, this was brought home to me also. He sounds so much like I have been at times

    Thank you HG, for this analysis of Johnny Depp. The aspects you discussed are very interesting and also telling.

    Some details that stand out to me:

    1. While Johnny has described his childhood as chaotic – and his mother as physically, emotionally and psychologically abusive, and his father as stoic and unresponsive to his mother’s provocations – both parents sound like they had a consistent work ethic and did provide for the family even though their incomes were modest.
    This suggests to me that Johnny learned from them how to be accountable with regard to his work ethic.

    2. Johnny stated in his Rolling Stones interview in 2018 that he grew up in a ‘ghost household’ where the family hardly talked to each other. To me, that sounds like the ‘communication’ between family members manifested as physical – throwing things, hitting or beating, angry outbursts, psychological put-downs etc.
    Perhaps Johnny’s mother responded to Johnny’s father’s controlled, emotionally stoic silences by becoming more emotionally and physically erratic and demonstrative. Perhaps his father’s ‘silence’ was a provocation in his mother’s eyes. One thing about communication is that, no matter what you do, you cannot *not* communicate.
    Another thing may be that Johnny communicates in relationships through sex, demonstrative actions, physical or verbal outbursts, etc, rather than considering the situation and the dynamic in a more detached and analytical way.
    Johnny has repeatedly jumped into marriage with his relationship partners, after knowing them for a short time or when he was very young. This suggests to me that he has magical thinking. What does he think ‘marriage’ is about? Does he consider the relationship in a family sense where he will raise children with his partner, or have a long-term union together, sharing their lives and being monogamous? Is it because he is possessive and wants the person all to himself? Is it because he is insecure in a relationship and wants the marriage to cement his access to sex with his partner? Is it because he has ET and thinks he can ‘fix’ his partner? It makes me wonder how he ‘sees’ marriage and what his drivers are to marry someone.

    3. After listening to HG list Johnny’s films, I have to admit I do believe he is talented as an actor. I enjoyed his roles in a number of films and I can see that he brings an emotional subtlety and resonance to them. I acknowledge that.
    After listening to HG’s analysis so far, I now separate the aspects of ‘Johnny the actor’ from ‘Johnny the relationship partner’ and ‘Johnny the husband/father’ and ‘Johnny the addict’.

    4. HG, you may want to look away and not read the next point. As for myself, I’m going to brace myself and not ‘self-monitor’…
    Here goes:
    I thought it was interesting that HG described Johnny as having ‘accountability’ and a responsible ‘work ethic’ despite his ‘hedonistic lifestyle’ when he continued to work in films and take on roles.
    Meanwhile, HG just had to mention that Kate Moss was not a very nice person and had bad skin even though Kate Moss also worked to become rich and famous (accountability & work ethic). Kate Moss also had a ‘hedonistic lifestyle’, just like Johnny Depp. However, the terms used for her work ethic and her lifestyle were derogatory, consisting of the denigration of her personality and physical appearance. Double standards much HG?
    I’m going to be honest here… this kind of hyping up the sympathy for one and stomping on the characteristics of the other reeks of misogyny.
    There – I’ve said it. Let’s see how this goes down…

    Overall, even though I think the whole marriage saga and legal trial is ‘unsavory’ it is an interesting case when considering narcissism and different personalities.

      Rather entertaining for you to throw the label of double standards around.

      I know Kate Moss, she is not a pleasant person and she does have bad skin. Nothing to do with double standards, but simply observations based on what she is.

    HG,
    I was waiting with baited breath throughout this video. Talk about teasing us, you bad man. Will be getting ready for the rest of the videos. Very interested to hear your analysis.
    Best,
    DB

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Plenty of evidence for you to assess.

  4. Another Cat says:

    Without having seen but little of these proceedings, I have a very very hard time trying to see Johnny Depp, Winona or Vanessa as narcissists. All three seem to have it. Empathy.

  5. A Victor says:

    Well, it sounds a lot like Johnny must be an empath, from just Pt 2.

    Hey HG, very eager for your analysis. Did you find the clip where he talks about assassinating Trump?
    I find this whole thing interesting because he does keep engaging.. Which to me is a red flag. On the other hand if I were losing millions of dollars because of somebody’s behavior I guess I would engage, too. I’ll be curious to see what your analysis says.

  9. In so many words says:

    Let’s start predicting. I went back on forth several times. He comes across as genuine on the stand, but unlike Amber Heard, he is a very good actor. Given past behavior (a lot of things smashed and destroyed, broken engagements, suing his manager of many years, overspending, text with Paul Bettany), I now think, not an empath. But his concern for his son on taped recording seemed genuine. But then again, he recorded it. He also recorded himself trying to get away from her, to take a break. Other celebrities describe him as a nice person. But it could be a facade. His lawyer must have advised him that his chance of winning this lawsuit is low, the legal burden is hard to meet. And she does not have $50 million. He fought hard to allow cameras in the courtroom. I think this, all along, this is a battle for our hears and minds and he is winning it. If his goal was to destroy her, and to revive his career and stay in the spotlight, he is is achieving it. I am leaning toward narcissistic but not a narcissist.

    In my opinion, he is empath. One that knows quite a bit, understands himself very well because he appears confident while in court. He has a good sense of humour, I like that about him 🙂
