In his first post-divorce public appearance, Johnny Depp took to the stage at the People's Choice Awards yesterday to thank his fans for sticking by his side during the bleak aftermath of his marriage to Amber Heard.

As one would expect, his presence was met with gleeful screams from dutiful followers who've not faltered in their dedication to the 53-year-old Fantastic Beasts actor, despite the domestic-abuse rumors circulating around his divorce.

Collecting his award for the People's Choice for "Favorite Movie Icon," Depp addressed the crowd with the following candid speech:

“I came here for one reason tonight and one reason only — I love you, too, kid, thanks — I came here for you, the people who through whatever good times or bad, you know, have stood by me, trusted me. Thank you. You very, very graciously invited me here once again tonight. So I appreciate that very much. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.”
