Amber Heard Breaks Down As She Says Johnny Depp's 'Threat' Has Come True

Amber Heard Breaks Down As She Says Johnny Depp's 'Threat' Has Come True

Amber Heard reacted to a text from Johnny Depp promising her ‘total global humiliation’

Amber Heard broke down in a recent interview after revealing a ‘threat’ from her ex-husband Johnny Depp came true. 

The Aquaman actress, 36, reacted to a text from Depp promising her ‘total global humiliation’ in a new interview with NBC News. Watch below: 

The emotional actor said all she did was ask the jury to see her as a human being 'and hear [Depp's] own words, which is a promise to do this. It feels as though he has.'

The revelation was made to Savannah Guthrie in an interview where Heard also revealed she wasn’t surprised by the jury ruling in Depp’s favour.

She was sued over a 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post, about her experience of domestic abuse, which Depp claims defamed him, even though he was never named.

It was titled: “I spoke up against sexual violence - and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change.”

In the wake of the article, Depp lost a number of acting jobs, including his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. 

“How could [the jury] not come to that conclusion?” Heard said of the verdict that she had defamed Depp. 

“They had sat in those seats and heard over three weeks of nonstop relentless testimony from paid employees and, towards the end of the trial, randos, as I say.”

She continues: “I don’t blame them, I actually understand. [Depp]’s a beloved character, and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.”

Following the verdict, Heard was ordered to pay Depp $10m in compensatory damages and $5m in punitive damages.

However, this amount was capped at $10.35 million by Judge Penney Azcarate.

Amber Heard has broken her silence on the 'unfair' verdict during her trial with Johnny Depp.

The interview is Heard's first since the civil case, which is the second prompted by her op-ed.

The jury in the UK civil trial against The Sun newspaper ruled against Depp when he sued them for calling him a 'wife beater'.

Heard told NBC that despite everything, she still 'loves' her ex-husband.

She said: “Absolutely. I love him. I loved him with all my heart.”

“I have no bad feelings or ill will to him at all,” she explained. “I know that might be hard to understand, or it might be really easy to understand if you’ve ever loved anyone, it should be easy.”

The actor also expressed her fears that she will be sued again by Depp, telling Guthrie: “I’m scared that no matter what I do, no matter what I say or how I say it, it will present another opportunity for silencing.”

Heard's full interview is airing this Friday at 8:00pm ET (1:00am BST).
