Rick Wood was hired in 2015 to serve as bodyguard to Johnny Depp and Amber Heard while in Australia. At the time, Johnny Depp was shooting the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean saga, Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge. Here is what Rick Wood would have told 9News Queensland about Depp’s behavior:

“He’s in the character all the time so he’s practically Jack Sparrow – good guy. I can’t see him that way and in my environment you know who beats women and who doesn’t.”

Rick Wood’s interview clearly refers to the lawsuit that sees Johnny Depp pitted against his ex-wife Amber Heard, who accused him of violent servants. Depp sued the ownership of the English newspaper The Sun for defamation, who in an article called him “wifey beater” by rejecting any accusation of violence.
