A highly anticipated return that was planned to the millimeter by his team, especially since it was his return after his legal conflicts with his ex-wife, Amber Heard, who had left the image and reputation of he severely touched.

A team that had a whole challenge ahead, because everyone knows that the actor is not exactly concerned about his image. The followers of the protagonist of Pirates of the Caribbean are used to seeing him with his scruffy outfits and apparently untidy rock star appearance, so his team had to subject him to a real transformation to appear visible in Cannes. Of course, they did not have a huge problem: his teeth.

A set of teeth that has reached that state, as everyone can imagine, as a result of poor hygiene and the actor's years of bad habits, especially his high consumption of tobacco and drinks such as red wine, which help them lose weight. its natural colour.

As if that were not enough, the actor would have also left the occasional unfinished dental procedure, worsening the state of his cavities and other problems. In addition, he had metal veneers for a while that left visible wear on his teeth.

The actor, who will turn 60 on June 9, returned to his usual rock star look the next day. On the night of Monday, May 23, he surrounded himself with some of the most famous guitarists of all time -such as Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton or Ronnie Wood- to pay a heartfelt tribute to his friend, Jeff Beck, who died at the age of 73. .
