Johnny has tried to keep his children out of the spotlight during the trial although has made several references to them over the last few weeks, including a rare insight into raising children in the public eye. 

When discussing the level of fame that occurred after the first Pirate of the Caribbean movie in 2003 - which he described as a "completely different way of life my family and I were plunged into" - he admitted to fearing for his children's safety.

"There was no other way but to hire more security guards and I was certainly worried for my kids' safety," he said.

Johnny is even said to be going through the lengthy trial for the sake of his children.

"Since I knew there was no truth to it whatsoever, I felt it was my responsibility to stand up for myself, not only in that instance but to stand up for my children, who at the time were 14 and 16," he reportedly said.

He added: "I wanted to clear my children of this horrid thing they were having to read about their father, which was untrue."

Johnny's $50m defamation case against Amber stems from a 2018 op-ed article she wrote for the Washington Post in which she said she was a "public figure representing domestic abuse".

While the piece did not identify Johnny by name, his attorneys have said it "incalculably" damaged his career, costing him acting roles. She has countersued him for $100m.
