Amber Heard spoke about what happened in her media trial against her ex-husband Johnny Depp. The actress gave an interview with Savannah Guthrie that will be rebroadcast on NBC’s Today show.
Overshadowed by the actor’s image
In a preview of what will air in the coming days, the performer issued surprising statements about the jury’s verdict and also about the celebrated actor.
“I actually understand it. He’s a beloved character and people feel like they know him. He’s a fantastic actor,” Heard said about Depp regarding the jury’s verdict.
The actress who plays Mera in the Aquaman saga also explained what the social media frenzy entailed. When questioned about people’s “media judgment,” Heard said she didn’t think the treatment she received online was fair.
“Even if you think I’m lying, you couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think on social media there’s been fair representation,” Heard explained.
No hard feelings
Despite this, the 36-year-old didn’t want to blame anyone for everything that happened and emphasized that she didn’t take it personally.
“I don’t care what one thinks of me or what judgments you want to make about what happened in the privacy of my own home, in my marriage, behind closed doors. I don’t presume that average people should know those things,” he said.
The truth is that the jury ruled in the city of Fairfax, Virginia, that there was defamation of Amber Heard towards her ex-husband.
In this sense, the actress was ordered to pay more than 10 million dollars in damages.
However, her lawyer confirmed that they will appeal the sentence arguing possible defects of form of the jury during the process.
In addition, she also said that the interpreter cannot pay the full amount stipulated in the sentence.
