A body language expert has said that Amber Heard’s first sit-down interview following her defeat in court shows arrogance.
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.
A sneak peak was released of the interview before the official release on 17 June at 8pm EST.
Behavioural analyst Jesús Enrique Rosas, aka The Body Language Guy on YouTube has analyzed the footage and has spoken to Indy100.
In regards to Heard’s interview, Rosas said there were:
“rapid changes contradicting emotions” with “sadness to arrogance, to sadness again, in a matter of seconds.”
He also added that there were:
“rapid bursts of blinking signalled anxiety and a lack of facial sync between the upper and lower area of the face.”
“she tried to express emotions with her mouth, but her eyes stayed emotionless most of the time.”
