On his Instagram Story, Johnny Depp revealed that his injury started out as a hairline crack on his ankle, and he believes he sustained it sometime after the Cannes Film Festival in mid-May. Depp received a standing ovation from the audience of his film, “Jeanne du Barry,” in which he plays France’s King Louis XV. After that warm reception, the actor told Deadline, “I don’t feel boycotted by Hollywood because I don’t think about Hollywood. I don’t have much further need for Hollywood myself.”
But while Depp and his fellow rockers — Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, and Tommy Henriksen — don’t have to worry about a boycott keeping their band off the stage, a doctor told Depp that his minor ankle injury eventually became a full-blown fracture. In other words, he can’t just whip off one of his many scarves, wrap it up, and rock on; it’s going to keep him off of his feet and out of the air for a bit. “It got worse rather than better,” Depp wrote on Instagram. “Several medical professionals have strongly suggested I avoid any and all activity for the moment and so am sadly unable to travel at this time.”
According to Depp, his ankle was already fractured when he performed during the Jeff Beck tribute concert at Royal Albert Hall in London on May 22. But the show can’t always go on.
