Johnny and Angelina? The actress has sought advice from Mr. Depp


If anyone knows what it's like to go through a high-profile separation, it's Johnny Depp.

And now the actor, whose split from Amber Heard made headlines all over the world, has been offering advice to Angelina Jolie in the aftermath of her divorce announcement last Tuesday.

The stars, who performed opposite each other in The Tourist back in 2010, have kept in close contact, and it looks like Angelina has put a lot of trust in the Pirates of the Caribbean star.

"Angelina idolised Johnny for years before she worked with him on The Tourist, and then the pair of them really hit it off on set," a source told The Sun.

According to insiders, Johnny sought solace in their friendship during his media storm earlier this year, and is keen to advise Angelina during this time.

"The two of them have stayed in touch ever since then, and spoke regularly during the storm that surrounded Johnny’s break up with Amber."

The Maleficent actress turned to the actor's attorney in recent weeks, with the source adding: "They have been speaking about the situation, and Angelina hired Johnny’s lawyer to represent her based on the advice that he has given her."

The news will surely come as a blow to Brad who is reportedly holding out hope for a reconciliation, with a source close to the former couple revealing:"It's a very tricky time for the family but Brad hasn't given up hope yet."
