“We were terrible to each other. I made a lot of mistakes. A lot of mistakes. But I’ve always told the truth,” Amber Heard said in a recent interview
In her first post-trial interview with Savannah Guthrie, Amber Heard discusses her loss at the hands of Johnny Depp’s lawyers and claims she will always stand by her testimony. She’s been spotted here and there, but this is the first time she’s raised the issue, aside from the statement Heard released after losing the defamation lawsuit. Now, Heard has accepted that she acted “terribly” and “unrecognizable” in her relationship with Depp.
While speaking with Savannah on NBC’s Today interview, she said, “I’ve said and done unfortunate things throughout my relationship. I’ve been behaving in horrible ways I didn’t even recognize – so much regret, horrible language, being pushed so far that I no longer know the difference between right and wrong. I will always continue to feel like a part of this other half of this relationship and it was ugly. This came to light when Savannah Heard asked about claims by Johnny Depp’s lawyers, Camille Vasquez and Ben Chew, that the ‘Aquaman’ actress lost her case because she didn’t accept responsibility for her actions.
Beautiful but toxic relationship?
This high-profile defamation case put the two celebrities’ lives to the test, but the support Johnny Depp has enjoyed on social media has been incredible. Statistics show that the famous #JusticeforJohnnyDepp received almost 19.2 billion tweets. Separately, the jury found both sides liable for defamation, awarding Depp $15 million in damages and Amber Heard $2 million. “Until the day I die, I will stand by every word I say,” Heard said.
The intensive process dragged on for weeks. Both sides attacked each other with intense evidence, allegations and whatnot, only to find Johnny Depp on the winning end. In the same interview, Amber Heard said: “We were horrible to each other. I made a lot of mistakes. Many errors. But I’ve always told the truth.” And, of course, the internet didn’t respond well to that claim of hers. One user said: “I would say Amber Heard but I’m pretty sure she’s never been nice. Thank goodness Johnny Depp got away from this psychopath and cleared his name in court. #AmberHeardIsALiar #AmberHeardlsApsychopath #AmberHeardlsAnAbuser,” another user said, “Tell Amber Heared to stop her efforts at being the face of abused women when she is the abuser herself.”
One angry user wrote: “……..no. Sorry but you can’t poke fun at a man’s mental health for years and then suddenly claim you support it, damn attention listening to Bernstein wannabe.” Another user said, “OJ Simpson & Amber Heard should get together to write a book about the comfort of lying. #AmberHeardIsALiar.” Surprisingly, a few people went ahead and supported her as well. In her recent interview, she went on to claim that the jury was affected by the social media campaign aimed at slandering her name.
