That's just is proof he's a farking good actor when he wants to be.

There is a difference between a role and player's real life subby. What's next, are we to believe Kevin Spacey is an amoral deviant sociopath whose only concern is personal power and appearing likeable even though he's a horrible person?

You're not alone. I've made it a mission of sorts to maintain the last vestiges of integrity when it comes to language via text. This includes the use of proper punctuation, spelling, and grammar- whenever possible. I don't care if it makes me seem old or snobby. I don't want to be some drooling simp texting only emoticons and shortening words because it's just too hard to type full sentences. These phones nowadays make it even easier to text full sentences with little difficulty. If you don't use it, you lose it.

I order drugs by smoke signal.  If you stop seeing smoke, send more weed.
How little do you have to have going on socially to care what any actor does off-screen?  My dentist could dress up like a raggedy Ann doll and dance on tables for money, and if he does a good job on my teeth, I couldn't care less.

Nadie_AZ: joker420: Drugs should be legal.

Which is why this story means nothing to me. So what if he texted for drugs?


FTFA: ' The messages were sent in early 2015, shortly before an alleged incident in Australia between Depp and Heard that she claims was "a three-day ordeal of physical assaults". '

Perhaps they plan to contend that un-prescribed and un-monitored drug use contributed to a mental state that encouraged violence against his spouse, thus supporting their claim that the alleged violence did occur.

That doesn't mean he's an wife beater. Or any other kind of human beater. It just means he maybe abuses his own damn body with substances.
