AMBER HEARD'S FIRST INTERVIEW POST DEFAMATION TRIAL WITH EX-HUSBAND JOHNNY DEPP
In actor Johnny Depp's defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard, the jury sided with the actor. In a new interview since the verdict, Amber said that the trial was the most ‘horrible and humiliating’ thing she has been through. The actor added that she stands by the testimony she gave during the high-profile six-week trial. “To my dying day, I’ll stand by every word of my testimony. I made a lot of mistakes, but I’ve always told the truth. His lawyer did a better job at distracting the jury from the real issues. This is the most humiliating and horrible thing I’ve ever been through. I did do and say horrible, regrettable things throughout my relationship. I behaved in horrible, almost unrecognizable to myself ways. I have so much regret,” Amber told NBC in the second part of her interview, which was aired on Tuesday.
