The Most Googled Celebrities of 2022
Whether they were causing scandals or becoming a social media sensation, these celebrities racked up millions of searches this year. Google compiled data to determine which stars were the most searched on their names in 2022.
Actor Johnny Depp was top of the trending list this year after his defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard unfolded from April to June. He also topped the search entertainment category.
1. Amber Heard
One of the most-googled celebrities of 2022 is Amber Heard, a talented actress and model. She started her career at a young age and has appeared in a number of films, including Jack & Bobby and Friday Night Lights.
She is an ambassador for the American Civil Liberties Union, which supports women’s rights and works to promote human rights campaigns around the world. She is also a supporter of social welfare and children’s rights.
Heard grew up in Texas, where she learned to ride horses and fish. She competed in beauty pageants and attended a Catholic school before pursuing a career in acting.
When she was sixteen, her best friend died in a car accident, and Heard became an atheist. Nevertheless, she left her high school to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles.
After several attempts to find work, Heard finally found a role in the 2004 film Friday Night Lights, which became her first film to receive critical acclaim. From there, she went on to star in movies such as Never Back Down and Pineapple Express.
Her most recent movie, Aquaman, was released in 2018. She has appeared in a number of other films and television shows since then, as well as in music videos.
As a result, Heard has an estimated net worth of $2.5 million. This is primarily made up of her acting fees, as well as endorsements from beauty brands.
However, she has been accused of defaming Johnny Depp in a lawsuit. This has impacted her net worth significantly, as she is expected to lose out on her earnings.
Heard’s case has drawn a lot of criticism from fans. In fact, the hashtag #JusticeForJohnnyDepp has racked up billions of views on social media. Many have compared the trial to the mockery Britney Spears was subjected to in 2007.
2. Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp is an actor and musician, known for his flamboyant appearances and performances in films like Edward Scissorhands and Ed Wood. He has also earned a spot in the Guinness World Records as the highest-paid actor of 2012.
He made his film debut at age 16 with a small role in the horror movie A Nightmare on Elm Street. He later worked with Nicolas Cage, who introduced him to an agent. After that, Depp landed a part in the teen cop TV show 21 Jump Street.
As an actor, he has performed in many critically-acclaimed films and he is considered to be one of the best actors in Hollywood. He has a talent for playing freakishly eccentric outcasts who are often misunderstood by society. He has also played a number of characters that are very dangerous or violent.
His most recent film is Murder on the Orient Express, which was adapted from Agatha Christie’s 1933 novel. He has also appeared in other films like Alice Through the Looking Glass and Tusk.
In addition to his acting, Depp is also a famous musician and rock star. He has a band called Hollywood Vampires with his former wife, Amber Heard.
He has a huge collection of luxury cars, and it is estimated that his collection is worth crores. He also owns a luxury yacht and a private jet.
Another thing about Depp is that he can imitate various accents. He frequently uses British, Scottish or Australian accents for his characters.
He has been criticized for using these accents because he is a former alcoholic and it’s believed that he does it for attention. He was also accused of sexually abusing his wife Amber Heard before they divorced in 2022.
3. Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian is a businesswoman and reality television star who earned the title of richest woman in the world before she turned 30.

Before she became a household name, Kim was an assistant to Paris Hilton and a stylist for Brandy Norwood. But she really gained public attention when she released a sex tape with her then-boyfriend Ray J that went viral on the internet.
She became a pop culture sensation because of the video, which was distributed by Vivid Entertainment, an adult film company. After suing the distributor, she settled for $5 million.
The sex tape boosted her celebrity status, which in turn led to her debut of a reality TV series called Keeping Up With the Kardashians. It starred Kim; her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe; her mother Kris; former stepfather Bruce Jenner (now known as Caitlyn); and the two youngest daughters of Kris and Bruce, Kendall and Kylie.
This year, she launched her second line of clothing and a beauty line, which reportedly has a $3.2 billion valuation. She also sold a 20% stake in her KKW Beauty line to Coty Inc. This boosted her net worth to $780 million.
In addition to her starring roles, Kardashian has made a name for herself as a self-help coach and social media personality. She has appeared at conferences like Glamour’s Women of the Year Summit, Create & Cultivate, and Re/Code.
She has also helped a number of celebrities, including Amber Heard, Johnny Depp, and the late Queen Elizabeth II. Her efforts landed her in the top ten of Google’s most searched people in 2022.
