Amber Heard has been slammed after Megyn Kelly called her ‘unemployable’ after losing the defamation case to her ex husband Johnny Depp.
Hollywood experts have suggested that there is ‘no way back in Hollywood’ for the 36-year-old, adding that she is ‘too icky for a studio’ creating doubt about whether she will be able to pay her ex husband the damages ordered by the court.
It was announced by the jury on Wednesday that Depp had won the case against Heard which started over her 2018 Washington Post op-ed where she claimed to be a victim of domestic abuse.
The Aquaman star has been ordered by the court to pay more than $8 million to Depp in damages.
It is not know what sort of financial backing the actress has but it did come out during her appearance in court that she was paid $1 million for her appearance in Aquaman. Many are scratching their heads at how she is going to be able to pay Depp what she owes.
Journalist and commentator, Megyn Kelly, said:
“I think she’s professionally ruined for the time being. I’m not sure whether she comes back from this, even in a town that’s very liberal and that would be much more in the knee jerk ‘I believe all women’ camp. The problem for her in Hollywood is the nation watched this trial, and they decided she was a liar and Depp was a truth-teller.”
“There was already a petition with, I don’t know, between 3 and 4 million. Maybe it’s more now to get her booted out of the next Aquaman sequel. They don’t wanna see her. She’s come to represent more than a woman who falsely accused a beloved actor. She’s come to represent all women, who women and men feel have made false accusations. Now that’s unfair, but that’s where we are. And that’s why I say she’s probably unemployable,”
Heard could reportedly file for bankruptcy, in which case this would likely wipe away the $8 million, only leaving her with the $350,000 in punitive damages to pay Depp.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor has stated from the beginning that “the goal of bringing this case was to reveal the truth, regardless of the outcome.’
