Amber Heard says she still loves Johnny Depp

Amber Heard has described speaking out about alleged sexual violence as the “scariest, most intimidating thing” in her first interview since a jury ruled against her in her defamation case with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Ms Heard’s full interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie aired on Dateline on Friday night, where the Aquaman actor claimed that a “binder” of therapist’s notes and text messages could have led jurors to reach a different verdict.

In one of the messages, Ms Heard appeared to tell her therapist that Mr Depp “did a number on me tonight”.

Mr Depp has denied ever abusing Ms Heard.

The messages were not allowed as evidence in the case after the judge ruled them inadmissible.

On Thursday, Mr Depp’s team responded to Ms Heard’s interview saying: “It’s unfortunate that while Johnny is looking to move forward with his life, the defendant and her team are back to repeating, reimagining and re-litigating matters that have already been decided by the court and a verdict that was unequivocally decided by a jury in Johnny’s favor.”

Heard sent father text claiming Depp kicked her on plane

Amber Heard sent her father a text message claiming that Johnny Depp kicked her on an airplane, the actress revealed in her interview with NBC’s Dateline on Friday night.

The message, from 2014, read: “I keep not fighting back. He literally kicked me and called me a [redacted] in front of everyone on the plane. It’s humiliating”.

At the trial, Ms Heard testified about the alleged incident on an airplane where she accused Mr Depp of assaulting her.

Mr Depp denied the allegations.

The text was among those Ms Heard’s legal team shared with NBC, claiming it was evidence of the alleged abuse that she suffered.

The messages were not presented as evidence to the jury in the defamation trial after the judge deemed them inadmissible in court.

‘I don’t blame jury,’ says Heard

Amber Heard said she doesn’t blame the jury for handing down its verdict in the defamation case, telling Savannah Guthrie that she’s not surprised with their decision because Johnny Depp is a “beloved character”.

Ms Guthrie told Ms Heard: “There’s no polite way to say it, the jury looked at the evidence you presented, they listened to your evidence and they did not believe you. They thought you were lying.”

Ms Heard replied: “How could they make a judgement, how could they not come to that conclusion? They had sat in those seats and heard over three weeks of non-stop relentless testimony from paid employees, and towards the end of the trial, randos.”

“So you don’t blame the jury,” Ms Guthrie asked.

“I don’t blame them. I actually understand. He’s a beloved character and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor,” Ms Heard said.

Heard insists she never ‘instigated violence’

Amber Heard denied Johnny Depp’s claim that she instigated violence in her sitdown interview with Savannah Guthrie.

“I never had to instigate it, I responded to it,” she said.

“When you’re living in violence and it becomes normal, as I testified to, you have to adapt, you adopt strategies to cope with it, and if it meant, as I testified to, if it meant the difference between a broken nose or a sore cheek, I would do it.”

Heard says she ‘tried her best’ at marriage to Depp

“I know that might be hard to understand, or it might be really easy to understand.

“If you’ve just ever loved anyone, it should be easy.”

Heard says Depp fans outside court made her feel ‘less than human’

Amber Heard said that Pirates of the Caribbean fans who gathered outside the courthouse in Virginia made her feel “removed from humanity”

Ms Heard described to Ms Guthrie in her NBC interview how she would have to pass swarms of supporters of her ex-husband when she arrived at court each day.

“Every single day I passed from three, four, sometimes six city blocks filled with people, holding signs, saying ‘Burn the witch’, ‘Death to Amber’,” she recalled.

“After three and a half weeks I took the stand and saw a courtroom packed full with Captain Jack Sparrow fans, who were vocal, energised…

“This was the most humiliating and horrible thing I’ve ever been through,” she continued. “I have never felt more removed from my own humanity. I felt less than human.”

Heard says speaking out about alleged sexual violence is ‘scariest thing’

Amber Heard described speaking out about the alleged sexual violence that she suffered as the “scariest, most intimidating thing” in her first interview since a jury sided with Johnny Depp in their defamation case.

The Aquaman actor told Savannah Guthrie in her interview on NBC’s Dateline on Friday night that she was “terrified” about being cross-examined by her ex-husband’s legal team and “not being believed” about her allegations.

“The scariest, most intimidating thing for anybody talking about sexual violence is not being believed, being called a liar, or being humiliated,” she said.

Ms Heard told Ms Guthrie, whose husband has worked as a consultant for Mr Depp’s legal team, that she was not being “vindictive” by sitting down for an interview in the aftermath of the case.

Heard suggests Depp’s exes are too afraid to speak out

Amber Heard has suggested that Johnny Depp’s other former partners may be too afraid of a backlash to come forward with accusations of abuse against the Pirates of the Caribbean star.

In her interview on NBC’s Dateline on Friday night, the Aquaman actor responded to a question from Savannah Guthrie about why she is the only one of Mr Depp’s exes to publicly accuse him of violence.

“Look what happened to me when I came forward,” she said. “Would you?”

Throughout the couple’s explosive defamation trial in Fairfax, Virginia, Ms Heard testified about multiple alleged incidents of abuse.

Mr Depp denied ever abusing Ms Heard and instead claimed that she was the abuser in their relationship.

In a dramatic moment of the trial, supermodel Kate Moss testified that her ex-boyfriend Mr Depp was never violent to her when they dated in the 1990s.
