Things are beginning to look up for Johnny Depp. Can you smell it?
Johnny Depp just signed a new contract with Dior, according to TMZ. This is good news because he recently won a defamation suit against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
The $1 million dollar deal will see the three-time Oscar nominee resume his role as the face of the company’s Sauvage scent for men.
Dior Beauty and Depp partnered to post pictures of him on stage in Paris. The pictures were taken by fashion photographer Greg Williams.
“Fearless yet human, just like Sauvage,” the caption reads.

Insiders say that Depp’s photos will be used in a new campaign for Dior.Depp’s ad for the cologne disappeared from TV following Heard’s allegations of abuse, but they eventually returned to the small screen even before Depp’s win.
Earlier this year, the former couple’s tumultuous relationship was in the news because they went to court and fought about something. Depp wanted $50 million and the “Aquaman” star, 36, wanted $100 million. They both countersued each other.
A jury in Virginia found that Heard’s 2018 Washington Post op-ed warranted Depp receiving $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. However, the final verdict was for Depp to receive $10.35 million.
Meanwhile, Heard’s countersuit was successful. The suit focused on allegations by Depp’s lawyer Adam Waldman that her allegations against the actor were a hoax. As a result, she was awarded $2 million in damages.
