Actor Johnny Depp made a visit to the Hemswell Antique Center in Hemswell Cliff, England, recently, where he arrived in his helicopter outside the entrance. Depp sought to keep his visit discreet, opting to view the guitars on sale without being bothered by his fans, as reported by sources close to the actor.
A Secret Operation Revealed
The visit was arranged in secret between the Hemswell Antique Center and Pinewood Studio, with the employees at the center unaware of Depp's arrival. Nevertheless, the news of the actor's visit quickly spread after the owner of the antique store shared it on the center's official Facebook page. "Hollywood meets Hemswell ? Starstruck staff can’t quite believe who walks through the door!
As a secret operation is revealed within the last half hour of their working day! ?I think they may have got that Friday Feeling!," read the Facebook post.
Depp's Passion for Antiques and Art
Depp ended up purchasing several items at the antique store, including a chair, three guitars, paint sets, easels, paintings, posters, and decorative items, according to the store's owner, Miller.
One guitar in particular caught Depp's attention, as it had a skull drawn on it. Miller stated that Depp even played the guitar before making the purchase. Depp found out about the Hemswell Antique Center due to their collaboration with England's Pinewood Studios, according to Miller.
Depp was in the news last year for a nearly seven-week trial in Virginia, where a jury declared that his ex-wife Amber Heard had defamed him, awarding him $10.35 million in damages. Heard was awarded $2 million in her countersuit, as the jury found that Depp had defamed her through his attorney.
She later filed an appeal. Johnny Depp's visit to the Hemswell Antique Center in England showcased his passion for antiques and art, as he made several purchases during his discreet visit. Despite being arranged in secret, news of the actor's visit quickly spread, much to the excitement of the staff at the center.
