Johnny Depp is taking a moment to thank his fan base as his very public legal war against ex-wife Amber Heard continues.
The Edward Scissorhands star, 57, took to his Instagram Friday with a nostalgic-feeling video showing him seated at a desk, penning a letter of gratitude.
The text was copied into the caption of the post, which read: 'Hello All! I just wanted to thank you all once again for your constant and loyal support throughout many long and interesting episodes of my life...

Seen on Instagram in his new film Waiting For The Barbarians: These posts come as Depp received word Friday from a Virginia court that there will indeed be a delay in the new defamation trial he is bringing against ex Amber Heard
As reported by Deadline, Circuit Court Chief Judge Bruce White has delayed the trial from January 11, 2021 to to May 3, 2021 – due to continued concerns over coronavirus.
Depp had initially filed a motion on August 21 to have the upcoming $50M defamation trial delayed so he could begin filming Fantastic Beasts 3 in London.
The Cry Baby actor filed court documents in a Fairfax County, Virginia court requesting the trial be delayed until anywhere between March and June of 2021, once filming was completed.
His ex Amber, 34, in turn filed a motion opposing the request.
The court had initially set the trial to run from January 11, 2021 to January 28, 2021, though Warner Bros. recently revealed they plan to start filming Fantastic Beasts 3 in October in London, which will run through the end of February.
