Amber Heard has decided to speak out in a television interview days after losing a defamation suit against her ex-husband Johnny Depp. In a one-hour primetime special on NBC, the actress is expected to discuss the six-week-long courtroom drama.
According to Deadline, Heard was interviewed by Savannah Guthrie on June 9 in New York City, but the show was not filmed at NBC’s 30 Rock HQ due to security concerns. ‘The Rum Diary’ star allegedly told Guthrie during the interview that she does not “blame” the jurors for the June 1 verdict. “How could they make a judgment, how could they not come to that conclusion [that I couldn’t be trusted]?” she asked. They had said and heard over three weeks of nonstop, relentless testimony from paid employees and, towards the end of the trial, randos, as I put it. I don’t blame them; in fact, I understand; he’s a well-liked character, and many people believe they are acquainted with him. He’s a great performer. After three and a half weeks of testimony about how untrustworthy I was and not to believe a word I said, how could they?”
Amber Heard’s alleged tell-all book deal is being slammed by Johnny Depp fans as a “fiction novel.”
Although Johnny Depp’s popularity is declining among Boomers and Democrats, Gen Z continues to adore him.
During the trial, the 36-year-old is said to have criticized the “unfair” social media attack against her. “I don’t care what people think of me or what judgments you want to make about what happened behind closed doors in the privacy of my own home, in my marriage,” she said. I don’t think the average person should be aware of such information. As a result, it doesn’t bother me.”
