Amber Heard says she still loves Johnny Depp

Amber Heard has given her first interview since losing her multi-million dollar defamation battle against her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Having sat down with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie last week, segments have been previewed on the Today show with the full interview scheduled for 8pm EST on 17 June.

Heard says she will stand by her testimony in the trial “to my dying day”, but with the trial played out on social media, she believes even the best-intentioned juror would’ve found it difficult to avoid.

Describing the trial as “humiliating” and that she felt “less than human”, Heard admits she did not feel confident ahead of the verdict but maintains she “spoke truth to power” and paid the price.

Asked whether Depp had made good on his promise of “total global humiliation”, Heard says it feels as though he has, but also says she still loves him.

Depp sued Heard for $50m for implying he abused her in a Washington Post op-ed. She pursued a $100m counterclaim, accusing him of conducting a “smear campaign” against her.

What is Savannah Guthrie’s connection to Johnny Depp?

Hollywood actress Amber Heard has given her first interview since a Virginia jury found her guilty of defaming her former husband Johnny Depp, sitting down with NBC journalist Savannah Guthrie to reflect on her side of the story.

What is surprising is not that the Aquaman star is speaking out about her experiences but that her choice of broadcaster to confide in happens to have a known connection to her former husband.

Heard asked if she feels ‘total global humiliation’ threat text came true

Ms Guthrie asks if Ms Heard feels that a promise from Johnny Depp in a text came true, that she would experience “total global humiliation”.

“I know he promised it… and I testified to this… I’m not a good victim, I get it, I’m not a likable victim, I’m not a perfect victim, but when I testified I asked the jury to just see me as human and to see his own words, which is a promise to do this. It feels as though he has.”

Why Heard is speaking out now

A spokesperson for Heard offered responded to the news of her first TV interview in a statement to The Independent,

“Johnny Depp’s legal team blanketed the media for days after the verdict with numerous statements and interviews on television, and Depp himself did the same on social media.

“Ms. Heard simply intended to respond to what they aggressively did last week; she did so by expressing her thoughts and feelings, much of which she was not allowed to do on the witness stand.”

In an awkward back and forth, Ms Guthrie challenges Ms Heard about the pledge to donate $7m to charity from her divorce settlement that did not happen and whether it undermined her credibility with the jury.

Ms Heard says it was one example of the Depp team casting aspersions on who she is as a human and her credibility and call her a lawyer.

Ms Guthrie points out that was the trial and it was a credibility contest.

Doubling down the actor says she shouldn’t have had to say she was going to donate the money in an effort to be believed, to which Ms Guthrie responds that she shouldn’t have had to but she did.

Ms Heard says she still intends to honor the pledge to the ACLU and the LA Children’s Hospital.
