Johnny Depp’s Jeanne Du Barry Director Explains Why It Was ‘Difficult To Shoot’ With Him


Maïwenn is not afraid to talk about the difficulties that came with working alongside Johnny Depp on her movie Jeanne Du Barry. While she doesn’t regret casting the actor – and he said he’s “endlessly grateful” for her taking a chance on him – ahead of the project’s premiere on the 2024 movie schedule, she opened up about the challenges that came with Depp being in her movie. 

In the film, Maïwenn, the director, also plays the titular Jeanne, a sex worker who gets the attention of Louis XV, who is played by Depp. While speaking with The Independent, she went into detail about the challenges she faced while working with the Pirates of the Caribbean star. She claimed he wouldn’t show up to set on time, and they were “waiting for Johnny, a lot of the time.” She also talked about him showing up after rewriting parts of the script, not attending rehearsals and being hard to communicate with generally. Talking about this experience, she said:

I have to be honest. It’s difficult to shoot with him… all the crew were scared because he has a different kind of humour and we didn’t know if he was going to be on time, or if he was going to be OK to say his lines… I mean, even if he was there on set, on time, the crew were afraid of him.
