Heard oddly stated that she “didn’t have any bad feelings or ill feelings towards Depp at all” despite recently trying to sue him for $100 million.
Amber Heard has insisted that she “absolutely still loves” her ex-husband Johnny Depp despite repeated claims that he abused her.
In the final episode of her high-profile interview for the NBC Today show, the actress bizarrely stated that she “has no bad feelings or ill will towards him at all” despite recently trying to sue him for $100 million. .
Asked if she still loves Depp, Hurd replied, “Yes. Absolutely. Absolutely. I love him. I loved him with all my heart and tried my best to mend a deeply broken relationship. And I couldn’t.
“I don’t have any bad feelings or ill will toward him at all. I know it can be hard to understand, or it can be very easy to understand if you’ve ever loved someone.”
Hurd, who lost a libel case with Depp and was ordered to pay A$14.4 million, also criticized Depp’s lawyer’s claims that she feigned bruising on her face.
“Again, the point is that if you have bruises, if you have injuries, it is fake. If you don’t have them [then] You weren’t hurt, she said.
She later said that the Washington Post article in which Depp sued her, alleging that she was a victim of domestic violence, was not meant to “cancel” it.
“This article was not about my relationship with Johnny. You know what, the article was about me lending my voice to the larger cultural conversation we had at the time. It wasn’t about him.”
In an earlier part of the interview, Hurd, 36, branded Depp, 59, as a “liar” and said the jury was convinced by viral social media posts mocking her.
When asked if she supported her accusations against Depp, she said: “Until the day I die, I will stand for every word in my testimony.”
In the second part of her three-part interview after the trial, Heard admitted that she “made a lot of mistakes” during her marriage to Depp.
“I have done and said terrible, regrettable things throughout my relationship. I behaved horribly, almost unrecognizable to myself. I am very sorry.
“I talked about terrible expressions, I talked about being driven to such an extent that I did not know the difference between right and wrong.
“I will always continue to feel like I was a part of it, like I was the other half of that relationship because I was. And it was very ugly, it could be very beautiful, and it was very toxic.
“We were terrible for each other and I made a lot of mistakes, a lot of mistakes, but I always told the truth.”
The actress also admitted that during the trial, the feuding couple came across as “brats”.
“I wouldn’t blame the average person for looking at this and the way it was covered and thinking it was Hollywood boys at their worst,” she said.
Heard described walking past people chanting “Death to Amber Heard” and “Burn the witch” as she arrived at court.
She said the trial was “the most humiliating and horrible thing I have ever gone through.”
“I have never felt more distant from my own humanity. I felt less than human,” she said.
Responding to claims by Depp’s attorney Camilla Vasquez that Heard had put on a “performance of a lifetime” during her time on the podium, the actress hit back by citing Depp’s performance in the 1990 film Edward Scissorhands.
“Says the lawyer of the man who convinced the world he had scissors for fingers.
“Am I a performer? I spent weeks listening to testimonies hinting or outright saying that I was a terrible actress. So I’m a little confused, how could I be both.”
Depp was awarded A$14.4 million in damages after a jury found Heard slandered him by calling himself a “domestic abuse public figure” in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed.
Heard did not name Depp in the article, but he sued her for implying that he was a domestic abuser.
Hurd later filed a countersuit, alleging that Depp’s lawyer Adam Waldman defamed her by saying that her abuse claims were a “hoax”. The jury awarded her $2 million.
