A body language expert has weighed in on Johnny Depp’s relationship with his lawyer, Camille Vasquez.
According to the Daily Mail, Judi James has said that although the pair appear ‘flirtatious,’ there’s most likely a reason behind this.
She told the publication: “It looks flirtatious but that’s probably the point.
Watch attorney Camille Vasquez cross-examine Amber Heard in the clip below…
“If a picture paints a thousand words, these ‘words’ look straight out of the pages of [romance publishing company] Mills & Boon.
“Her behaviour in court places Depp back in the role as the romantic hero.
“For Depp’s loyal fans these dramatic rituals will seem like validation, ‘If this smart, beautiful woman thinks he is okay then maybe he is,’ will be the implied message.”
James also weighed in on the pair hugging during the defamation trial, which she labelled a ‘moving piece of body language theatre’.
It comes as Vasquez also responded to the speculation when leaving the Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia.
At the time, she was questioned by reporters and simply responded: “Sorry,’ when asked if she was dating the 58-year-old.
Several clips of the moment have since circulated online, and the attorney appears to laugh off the question when pressed to answer either ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
According to numerous reports, Vasquez is actually in a ‘serious’ relationship with a Brit who works in real estate. Apparently, they’ve been dating for ‘several months’.
