For several weeks, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were the center of attention during a trial that was highly publicized. This one caused a lot of talk on social networks and a documentary was made by the media TMZ. Titled Johnny vs. Amber: from love to hate, it will be available on the 6play platform this Friday, July 1. In it, unpublished images will be unveiled and, among them, there is in particular a great regret of Johnny Depp which is mentioned. “I shouldn’t have felt that way,” he explained on the stand. What is he talking about? His attraction to Amber Heard. The two actors met on the set of Rhum Express in 2009. While their characters kissed in front of the camera, Johnny Depp then said: “It was just a scene, and she had a wife, and I had Vanessa”. For her part, Amber Heard recalled that at the time of the facts, she was “only an unknown actress. He was a world star”. A simple scene for a movie that finally became a reality as the two quickly grew closer.
In this documentary, many anecdotes follow one another. A producer from TMZ then recalls that Johnny Depp was “45 years old and Amber Heard was only 22”. However, she specifies that “the chemistry between them was undeniable”. If the two actors were attracted to each other, they had chosen not to show it before this famous kissing scene. “It was no longer cinema”, assured Amber Heard. Words confirmed by Johnny Depp but both first made the choice to leave it at that. It was only two years later that they reunited for the film’s promotional tour. At this time, they are both single. They first started a secret relationship before finally wanting to formalize it in 2012. If this relationship experienced a real descent into hell, Johnny Depp said that it was “incredible for a year and a half”. A happiness that was short-lived since it was in 2016 that Amber Heard assured to be the victim of domestic violence on the part of the actor.
Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard: what was the verdict of the trial?
From April 11, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp faced justice in a highly publicized trial. As a reminder, the actress accused her ex-husband of domestic violence and claimed 100 million in damages for the moral damage suffered. For his part, the star of Pirates of the Caribbean accused his ex-wife of wanting to smear his reputation and of having lied all along the line. He claimed 50 million from her for the loss of earnings lost since 2016, when Amber Heard had filed for divorce, claiming to be a battered woman. After several weeks, the judges voted unanimously in favor of the actor on June 1st. Amber Heard was found guilty of defamation with malicious intent against Johnny Depp and damages to the tune of $15 million. The actor had quickly reacted on his Instagram account. “After six years, the jury has brought me back to life. I am truly touched,” he simply wrote.
