Amber Heard blamed her stunning court loss on paid employees giving evidence to back her ex-husband, Johnny Depp — and the jury falling for the “fantastic actor.”
In her first interview since her $10.4 million defamation loss, Heard, 36, told the “Today” show that she was not surprised by the jury’s verdict.
The “Today” show dropped a teaser for the bombshell talk on Monday, with the “Stepfather” star divulging her point of view over the trial.
She revealed that while she doesn’t blame the jury, she believes they fell for the “fantastic actor.”
“He’s a beloved character and people feel they know him,” she said in a clip released by “Today.” “He’s a fantastic actor.”
She went on: “Even somebody who is sure I’m deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t tell me — look me in the eye and tell me — that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation. You cannot tell me that you think that this has been fair.”
A spokesperson for Heard told The Post about the forthcoming interview, “Johnny Depp’s legal team blanketed the media for days after the verdict with numerous statements and interviews on television, and Depp himself did the same on social media.”
“Ms. Heard simply intended to respond to what they aggressively did last week; she did so by expressing her thoughts and feelings, much of which she was not allowed to do on the witness stand,” they continued.
While the full interview will air Friday on “Dateline NBC” at 8 p.m. EST, portions will air Tuesday and Wednesday on NBC’s “TODAY” show.
