Johnny Depp was gifted flowers by a fan through his car window as he left a photo call and press conference at the San Sebastian Film Festival on Thursday.

The 58-year-old actor, who has claimed his career has been harmed by the spread of cancel culture amid a $50million defamation lawsuit, appeared in great spirits. 

Depp, who has appeared as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise from 2003 to 2017, said at the festival that he'd be happy to reprise the role at children's birthday parties 'at this point'.

With adoring fans lined up outside hoping to catch a glimpse of the A-list star, one lucky follower got up close and personal as they handed him a bouquet of flowers. 

Speaking at the festival that day, Depp said: 'The beauty of Captain Jack Sparrow for me is that I can travel with Captain Jack in a box, literally Captain Jack in a box...

'And when the opportunity is right I'm able to go and visit people and places where the smiles and the laughs and the things that are important, the most important things in the world, are on the line.

'So I still travel with Captain Jack and if I have the opportunity, whenever I do, I will go to these places. I'll go to somebody's house - man, I'll perform at your kid's birthday party at this point!'

Depp appeared upbeat on Thursday as he emerged from his hotel at the festival after claiming his career has been harmed by the spread of cancel culture. 

The Hollywood star waved at fans while making his way towards a waiting car in the picturesque Spanish coastal city. 

Depp was the recipient of the Donostia Award on Wednesday evening at the event.

The actor had previously claimed he is a victim of cancel culture, warning that 'no one is safe' and urging those affected to 'stand up' for themselves. 

Speaking in San Sebastián, before accepting his honorary award at the film festival, Depp said the situation had become 'so out of hand'. 

In July 2020 he lost a high-profile case at the High Court in London, after The Sun newspaper described him as a 'wife beater' and he sued.

His ex-wife Amber Heard filed for divorce in 2016, accusing him of verbal and physical abuse, and she testified in London.

Depp lost his lucrative role in the Fantastic Beasts franchise in the aftermath of the case. 

Back in the U.S., Depp has recently won the right to proceed with a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard.  

Depp told the audience in Spain that he saw himself as a victim, and was concerned about the wider implications for society.

Ahead of taking to the stage to accept his award, Depp offered his thoughts on cancel culture, and called on people to 'stand up' for those facing 'injustice'.

'It can be seen as an event in history that lasted for however long it lasted, this cancel culture, this instant rush to judgement based on what essentially amounts to polluted air,' he said, according to Deadline

'It's so far out of hand now that I can promise you that no one is safe. Not one of you. No one out that door. No one is safe.

'It takes one sentence and there's no more ground, the carpet has been pulled.'

Depp said that his concern was not just for himself.

'It's not just me that this has happened to, it's happened to a lot of people,' he said.
