Amber Heard fears Johnny Depp will sue her again

Amber Heard shared her fears of being sued for defamation again in an interview with NBC.

Amber Heard said she was “horrified” that Johnny Depp would sue her again for libel in her first interview since the Aquaman actor lost a high-profile defamation case against her ex-husband three weeks ago in Virginia.

“I took for granted what I thought was my right to speak, not just what I experienced, but what I knew,” the actor said of the incident in Friday’s get-together with Savannah Guthrie on the program Dateline NBC. New York Post.

“I’m terrified,” Heard added when asked if she was afraid Depp would sue her again.

“I think that’s what a defamation suit is for, it’s designed to take your vote.”

The full interview with Guthrie aired at 8:00 pm after several teasers were dropped throughout the week.

Despite a jury decision earlier this month that Heard, 36, slandered her Pirates of the Caribbean ex with allegations of abuse, she insisted she stood by “every word” of her testimony.

In fact, Heard doubled down on accusations that Depp abused her during their “ugly” marriage and directly accused him of lying after he repeatedly denied her claims on the podium during a six-week trial.

At one point in an interview, Guthrie noted that Depp testified that he never hit Heard during their relationship, and that “no woman claimed he physically hit them.”

In response, Hurd hinted that Depp’s other ex-girlfriends may have been too scared to publicly accuse him of the alleged abuse.

“Look what happened to me when I stepped forward. Could you?” she said.

She went on to explain her motivation for speaking in public after being questioned by Guthrie.

“One thing I can tell you is that I am not vindictive. No part of me sees… That would be a really lousy way to get revenge,” Heard said.

“I’m not the best victim, I understand. I’m not a pleasant victim. I’m not the perfect victim, I understand. I’m not a saint. I’m not asking anyone to love me,” she said.

“In the course of this trial, I learned that he will never be good enough,” she said of the jury not believing her testimony.

“If you have proof, then it was a scheme, it was a hoax. If you don’t have proof, it didn’t happen. If you have a bruise, it’s fake. If you don’t have a bruise, then the abuse obviously didn’t hurt you. If you told people, then you are hysterical. If you didn’t tell anyone, it didn’t happen.”

Hurd said she plans to appeal the court’s decision to award Depp more than $10 million in damages and hopes the interview will balance “the very real concerns of others.” [abuse accusers] you might have to come forward and speak out.”

“Hopefully this doesn’t have the chilling effect that I fear it might have on other people,” she said.

Heard also admitted that she “absolutely” still loves Depp and has “no bad feelings” for him.

Asked if she wanted the jury to see anything else during the trial, Hurd said there are documents from her doctor that “are years, years of real-time explanations of what’s going on.”

“There are long-term notes dating back to 2011, from the very beginning of my relationship, that were made by my doctor to whom I reported the abuse,” Hurd said at one point in an interview.

Deadline went through the folder entries and found that her therapist had written things like “He hit her, threw her on the floor” and “He threw her against the wall and threatened to kill her.”

Hurd said she was unsure on the day of sentencing, arguing that the trial appeared to have already been decided in court.

“I think that most of this process, unfortunately, played out outside the courtroom. I think the vast majority of this process played out on social media. And I think this trial is an example of that insanity,” Hurd said, arguing that the jury must have been influenced by Depp’s fans in the courthouse and online.

The jury ultimately sided with Depp due to “continuous ruthless testimony from paid employees,” she claimed.

“I don’t blame them. I really understand that he is a beloved character and people feel like they know him. He’s a fantastic actor,” she said, admitting that she should have confessed to her bad behavior in order to curry favor with the jury.

“I’ve done and said terrible and regrettable things throughout my relationship,” Heard Guthrie said. “I am very sorry”.

“You know, Savannah, as stupid as it is to say out loud… my goal, the only thing I can hope for at the moment, is just to want people to see me as a person.”
