Amber Heard, a Hollywood star and Johnny Depp’s ex-wife, has opened up about feeling “overwhelmingly afraid” after Johnny Depp won the defamation case against her.
Heard confessed to this during an interview on a programme, which she opened with the quip “Of course, I took for granted what I assume was my right to speak.”
Heard added that he was afraid that no matter what he did, no matter what she said or how she said it, he would never be able to make her stop. Every action I take, he insisted, “will present another opportunity for the sort of silencing.”
After the highly publicised defamation trial, reports that Amber Heard had been dropped from the Aquaman sequel have been refuted by a spokesperson for the actress.
Heard was supposed to return to the role of Mera, Aquaman’s love interest, in the upcoming movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The position, according to a source on Tuesday, had been recast.
Following a screening of the film, Warner Bros. chose to recast Amber Heard’s part. Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman will be used in new filming, they announced. The rumour mill, on the other hand, is still inaccurate, insensitive, and slightly insane, according to a spokesperson’s statement earlier this week.
In Justice League and the 2018 Aquaman prequel, Heard previously portrayed Mera. Heard claimed she had to “fight really hard” to keep the role because of the bad publicity surrounding Depp’s alleged abuse of her during the defamation trial.
