Johnny Depp, who last month lost his high-profile label case against British newspaper The Sun over an article that called him a “wife beater,” posted a holiday message to his fans on Instagram Saturday.

“This year has been so hard for so many,” the Pirates of the Caribbean wrote. “Here’s to a better time ahead.”

While Depp likely refers to the devastating coronavirus pandemic, which has taken the lives of 1.8 million people worldwide, 2020 has been difficult for him too, both personally and professionally, with his career in jeopardy. Shortly after a High Court court ruled against the actor, he also lost his starring role in Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts movie franchise.

But earlier this month, Depp turned to the UK Court Of Appeal in a bid to overturn the verdict.

Depp’s wrote his holiday message next to a black-and-white photo with Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan on the set of the documentary Crock of Gold, which Depp produced. It was the first time Depp addressed his fans directly since he announced last month that he had “been asked to resign by Warner Bros.” from his role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
