Amber Heard Says she Still Loves Johnny Depp


Amber Heard has spoken out after the ‘Unfair’ Johnny Depp Verdict and has claimed that she still loves her ex husband.

Depp launched a defamation lawsuit for $50 million against his ex wife in 2019 after the Aquaman star described herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 article she penned in The Washington Post.

Heard then countersued for $100 million as she claimed Depp’s legal team started a “smear campaign” against her.

Depp won the legal battle and the Aquaman star has been ordered by the court to pay more than $8 million to Depp in damages.

Heard had her first sit-down interview since losing in court. She spoke to Savannah Guthrie in a pre-recorded interview for Today, which is scheduled to air on Tuesday and Wednesday on NBC. 

Watch below:

The actress announced on the first day of the trial that “[she] still has love for Johnny Depp”.

When Guthrie asked Heard if that was still a “true” statement, the 36-year-old responded “yes”.

Heard told Guthrie:

“I actually understand. He’s a beloved character and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.”

“I don’t care what one thinks about 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 presume the average person should know those things. And so I don’t take it personally.”

“But even somebody who is sure I’m deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation. You cannot tell me that you think that this has been fair.”

Heard released a written statement shortly after the jury’s verdict.
