Amber Heard ‘supports every word she says’ at Johnny Depp trial

Amber Heard insists she “stands up every word she said” during her high-profile defamation trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Amber Heard insists she “stands up every word she said” during her high-profile defamation trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

But the actress admitted that during the trial, the feuding couple appeared to be “brats”.

In the second part of her NBC interview after losing to Depp for $14.4 million, she refused to back down due to allegations that she had been a victim of domestic violence.

“Until the day I die, I will stand by every word in my testimony,” Hurd said.

She later added, “I wouldn’t blame the average person for looking at it and the way it was covered and thinking it was Hollywood boys at their worst.”

Hurd said yesterday that she doesn’t blame the jury for siding with Depp during their explosive trial.

“I don’t blame them,” Hurd said.

“He is a beloved character and people feel like they know him. He is a fantastic actor.”

But Hurd, 36, called the verdict “unfair” and accused Depp of luring the jury to his side by putting “paid employees and randos” on the podium.

“I will say this: how could they judge, how could they not come to this conclusion,” Hurd said.

“They spoke in those places and for three weeks they listened to non-stop, relentless testimony from paid employees, and towards the end of the trial, rando, as I said.

“Again, how could they, after listening to three and a half weeks of testimony about what an unreliable person I am, and not believe a single word that came out of my mouth.”

Depp was awarded $14.4 million (AUD) 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 claims of abuse were a “hoax”. The jury awarded her $2 million.

Heard also stated in her Today interview that viral social media posts supporting Depp during the trial were “unfair”.

“I don’t care what people think 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 think the average person needs to know these things. And so I don’t take it personally,” she said.

“But even someone who is sure that I deserve all this hate and sarcasm, even if you think I’m lying, you still can’t look me in the eyes and say that you think fair representation has taken place on social networks .

“You can’t tell me that you think it’s fair.”

After the trial, Depp signed up for TikTok and was otherwise busy playing shows with Jeff Beck.

Heard’s rep said of today’s interview: “Johnny Depp’s legal team bombarded the media with numerous statements and TV interviews in the days following the sentencing, and Depp himself did the same on social media.

“Ms Heard just set out to react to what they did aggressively last week; she did so by expressing her thoughts and feelings, most of which she was not allowed to do on the witness stand.”
