Amber Heard gave her first interview since Johnny Depp’s defamation trial. Heard told Today’s Savannah Guthrie she doesn’t blame the jury for their decision. During her conversation, the actress discussed freedom of expression.
Amber told Guthrie she worries about more defamation lawsuits from Johnny Depp. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor sued her in 2019 for defaming him in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. “I took my freedom to speak for granted,” she said about her recent trial loss.
Heard continued, “I’m concerned that no matter what I do, what I say, or how I say it, every step I take will present another potential for silencing, which is what a defamation case is supposed to do; it’s meant to take your voice,” via Today.
In a separate interview, the Aquaman star said she stands by her court statement and it was truthful. Heard says she’ll appeal the verdict. She said she didn’t mean to harm or annoy anyone with her anonymous op-ed.
