Eva Green says she fully supports Johnny Depp in his trial with Amber Heard.
The French actor starred alongside him in the 2012 movie Dark Shadows, and said she is certain he will be vindicated.
Depp is currently in the midst of a defamation case against his ex-wife over an article she wrote in 2018, in which Heard claimed that she was a survivor of domestic abuse.
While Depp wasn't named specifically, he is suing the Aquaman star for $50 million over allegations of a loss of earnings. In turn, Heard is countersuing him for $100m.
But while the couple's relationship has been played out in the media, with a series of distressing claims being made, Green says she stands by Depp.
Sharing a photo of them both from a red carpet event, Green wrote: "I have no doubt Johnny will emerge with his good name and wonderful heart revealed to the world, and life will be better than it ever was for him and his family."
This week, a video deposition from one of Depp's ex-partners was played to the court.
Ellen Barkin dated the Pirates of The Caribbean star in the 90s, and said there were a lot of issues with his drinking and drug use.
She also recalled an altercation between Depp and a friend in a hotel room in Las Vegas, claiming he threw a wine bottle across the room.
While it didn't hit anyone, Barkin said he threw it in her direction.
"He's just a jealous man, controlling," she said. "'Where are you going? Who are you going with? What did you do last night?'
"I had a scratch on my back once that got him very, very angry because he insisted that it came from me having sex with a person who wasn't him."
Barkin's comments come after Heard claimed during her testimony that Depp had thrown bottles at her in the past.
She also claimed that Depp sexually assaulted her with one.
Heard recalled: "I remember not wanting to move because I didn’t know if it was broken – I didn’t know if the bottle that he had inside me was broken.
"I couldn’t feel it. I didn’t feel pain. I didn’t feel pain. I didn’t feel anything. ... I looked around and I saw so much broken glass... I just remember thinking, 'Please God, please. I hope it’s not broken'."
Depp, however, has denied ever abusing Heard, claiming instead that he was the victim of abuse in the relationship.
He told the court during his testimony that she put cigarettes out on his face and severed his finger when she threw a vodka bottle at him in 2015.
