Los Angeles | Johnny Depp may be in news for his short-lived marriage with Amber Heard but Disney CEO Bob Iger is confident that it will not affect the actor on the professional front. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Iger didn’t seem to worry himself with what’s going on in Depp’s private life.

Heard has filed for divorce and has also accused the actor of abuse. Not worried about it, Iger said in response to Depp’s personal problems. When asked if it’s because the scandal will pass, Iger said, I don’t know whether it passes or not. We have Jack Sparrow. Iger believes people are able to separate Depp and Sparrow.

The actor has been a part of many Disney blockbusters including the Pirates of the Caribbean series and most recently he reprised his role of Mad Hatter in Alice Through the Looking Glass Depp has stayed mum about his ongoing legal battle concerning his ex though his team released a statement after Heard filed for divorce.

Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly, his representative had said.
