‘We were awful to each other. I made a lot of mistakes. A lot of mistakes. But I always told the truth’, said Amber Heard in her recent interview
In her first post-trial interview with Savannah Guthrie, Amber Heard speaks about her loss at the hands of Johnny Depp’s lawyers and claims that she will always stand firm by her testimony. She had been spotted here and there, but this is the first time she has addressed this issue apart from the statement that Heard released after losing the defamation trial. Now, Heard has accepted that she had behaved in a “horrible” and an “unrecognizable” way in her relationship with Depp.
While talking to Savannah in NBC’s Today interview, she said, “I did say and do regrettable things throughout my relationship. I behaved in horrible, unrecognizable to myself, ways — so much regret. I freely and openly talked about what I did. The horrible language, being pushed to the extent of not knowing the difference between right and wrong. I will always continue to feel like I was part of this, the other half of this relationship, and it was ugly.” This came to light when Savannah asked Heard about the claims made by Johnny Depp’s lawyers, Camille Vasquez and Ben Chew, that the ‘Aquaman’ actress lost her case as she didn’t take any responsibility for her actions.
This high-profile defamation case put both the celebrities’ lives under extreme scrutiny but the support that Johnny Depp enjoyed on social media was unbelievable. Statistics indicated that the famous #JusticeforJohnnyDepp received almost 19.2 billion tweets. Regardless, the jury held both sides liable for defamation and awarded Depp $15 million in damages and Amber Heard $2 million. “To my dying day, I will stand by every word of my testimony,” said Heard.
Beautiful yet toxic relationship?
The intense trial was stretched out for weeks. Both the sides attacked each other with intensive proof, accusations, and whatnot, only to find Johnny Depp on the winning end. During the same interview, Amber Heard said, “We were awful to each other. I made a lot of mistakes. A lot of mistakes. But I always told the truth.” And of course, the internet did not react well to this claim of hers. One user said, “I would say Amber Heard, but I’m pretty sure she’s never been nice. Thank God Johnny Depp got away from that psycho and got to clear his name in court. #AmberHeardIsALiar #AmberHeardlsApsychopath #AmberHeardlsAnAbuser” Another user said, “Tell amber heard to stop her efforts to be the face of abused women when she is the abuser.”

One angry user wrote, “……..no. Sorry but you do not get to go around making fun of a man’s mental health for years then suddenly claim you support it, f*cking attention seeking amber heard wannabe.” Another user said, “OJ Simpson & Amber Heard should come together to write a book on how comfortable it is to lie. #AmberHeardIsALiar” surprisingly, some people went ahead and supported her as well. In her recent interview, she has continued to claim that the jury was affected by the social media campaign that was designed to smear her name.
