Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard: a review of the actor’s interventions during the trial against his ex-wife

At times irascible, at others incoherent and poetic, johnny depp plays a family role in the defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard: the protagonist.

For three days the actor, a three-time Oscar nominee, has been trying to convince the jury that Heard’s accusations of domestic abuse are false and have destroyed his career.

The lawyers of Amber Heard36, responded by detailing Depp, 58,’s long drug and alcohol history to undermine his credibility.

The star of “Pirates of the Caribbean” He remained calm during questioning by Heard’s lawyers, although he occasionally let his anger show.

Urged by his ex-wife’s lawyer, Ben Rottenborn, to respond with a “simple yes or no question”, Depp said: “Nothing is simple in this case.”

The actor has also learned the dynamic at play in Virginia court, where lawyers from both sides constantly interrupt each other to accuse each other of rumors.

“Those are rumours, I guess,” Depp said of one of his own comments, drawing laughter from the audience, which included some of the actor’s fans. “I am learning”.

At other times, he displayed poetic eloquence during his responses, which are often lengthy.

Asked about the domestic abuse allegations against him, Depp compared it to “running through lava drops.”

“You try to run between drops that kill you and destroy you.”

Johnny Depp a “monster”, according to Amber Heard’s lawyers

johnny depp She went to trial at the Fairfax County Circuit Court in Virginia, near Washington, with her hair tied in a ponytail, earrings and large rings.

He favored three-piece suits, and on Thursday he wore all black: a black suit, a black vest, and a black shirt and tie.

Amber Heardwho starred in the film “Aquaman,” opted mostly for black dresses and a change of headdress each day.

She remained stoic over Depp’s testimony, listening intently, whispering with her lawyers and taking notes on a yellow pad.

He showed his emotions, however, when video was released Thursday of an irate Depp slamming his kitchen cabinet doors.

The actress was also clearly dismayed when the jury heard a tape of her pleading with Depp not to cut himself with a knife.

Heard’s lawyers have argued that Depp became a sexually and physically abusive “monster” when drunk or high, and questioned him extensively about his substance use.

“We drank together. We did cocaine together maybe a couple of times,” Depp said when asked about dating rocker Marilyn Manson.

In a text message to another friend, actor Paul Bettany, Depp spoke about taking a flight without having “food for days, powders, half a bottle of whiskey, 1,000 Red Bulls and vodkas, pills and two bottles of champagne.”

Text messages

In the first week of the trial, the names of so many celebrities have come out to fill a tabloid.

johnny depp said he suspected actor James Franco of having an affair with Heard.

Heard, meanwhile, was jealous of a Depp tattoo that read “Winona Forever” (“inona forever”), a reference to his ex-girlfriend Winona Ryder. Depp said he had the last two letters removed and the tattoo now reads “Wino Forever.”

The actor was questioned about his text messages in which he asks for help to stay sober to Elton John and others to the singer Patti Smith in which he admits to drinking too much.

Domestic abuse is at the center of the trial and Depp and Amber Heard they accuse each other of being violent during their short marriage from 2015 to 2017.

Depp said he told several people about being beaten by Heard, including director Tim Burton, one of “his dearest friends,” and Alice Cooper, a member of the band “The Hollywood Vampires.”

The jury also heard Depp read out obscene text messages to various people calling Heard a “sneaky whore.” among other epithets.

In a message, Depp refers to his ex-partner, the singer Vanessa Paradis, mother of his two children, as a “French extortionist”.

On those messages, Depp acknowledged that it may have been excessive, but he defended himself: “When I write a message… it’s a canvas, it’s a painting.”

Depp sued Heard over a 2018 column describing herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.”

Heard did not mention Depp in the text published in the Washington Post but he accuses her of implying that he was an abuser and is seeking $50 million in damages.

Heard countersued in response, demanding $100 million and claiming she suffered “unbridled physical violence and abuse” at the star’s hands.

The trial resumes on Monday.
