He shared a video of himself seated at a desk in front of a large, stocked bookcase as he wrote out a thank-you letter. Johnny rehashed the text of his note in the caption, which read: "Hello All! I just wanted to thank you all once again for your constant and loyal support throughout many long and interesting episodes of my life… I am only here because of you — and I'm only here for you!!!"
Musician, writer and activist Patti Smith was among the many fans who replied to the star, commenting, "As the Libertine said: Ink not drink. Watching you write fills me with happiness. We all love you always. ☕️."
Johnny's grateful vibes could be related to the news his case against his ex-wife has been rescheduled from January to May 3, according to Deadline.
The actor recently asked the court to delay proceedings in the case — which he brought against Amber over her December 2018 op-ed about domestic violence for the Washington Post — because of his new filming dates for the next "Fantastic Beasts" movie. Amber opposed the change, telling the court she needs to be on-set herself during the time Johnny wanted to reschedule.
Johnny ultimately got the date change he wanted, but not because of his request.
"Right now, the Virginia Supreme Court has not authorized us to conduct jury trials," a judge in Virginia said via video conference on Friday, according to Deadline.
The judge decided to push back Johnny and Amber's trial because of the pandemic, but the Daily Mail points out that because criminal cases will be given priority, the delay could prevent the former couple from facing off until later in the year.
Johnny is accusing Amber, 34, of defaming him in the Post piece by implying the domestic violence she claims to have been subjected to was perpetrated by him during their marriage.
He has denied her abuse claims, saying it was she who abused him, not the other way around.
