Amber Heard reportedly contradicted herself when she opened up about her perception of Johnny Depp – after an old interview surfaced.
Depp and Heard have both taken a stand in their televised defamation trial, accusing each other of verbal and physical abuse during their relationship.
The couple, who were married for two years from 2015 to 2017, met on the set of The Rum Diary.
In early 2019, Depp sued Heard for defamation over an article she wrote about her experiences as a victim of domestic violence.
The actor has accused Heard of being the abuser and brought it up witnessesText messages and photos during the trial.
Social media accuses Amber Heard of perjury
A TikTok user merged Heard’s footage on the stand with a throwback interview to show the apparent shift in her description of how she perceived Depp.
The creator of the video, known on TikTok as @courtneymack, shared an October 2011 interview on The Rum Diary and paired it with footage of Heard on the witness stand in court earlier this week.
“I knew who he was,” Amber said, as captured in the TikTok video on the stand, continuing, “I wasn’t familiar, you know. I wasn’t a fan of his work. I did not know him.”
In the throwback interview, Heard had a different answer as to whether she was a Pirates of the Caribbean star fan growing up.
“I mean, who isn’t a fan of Johnny’s? It goes without saying,” she said in response. “For as long as I can remember he’s been a cultural icon and a talented actor.”
For the actress’ critics, the video seemingly confirms her belief that she is untrue during her testimony.
Before taking the stand, Amber Heard reportedly fired her PR team.
The move arrived as a petition Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman gained a lot of popularity after the first week of the defamation trial. It has collected around two million more signatures in the last two weeks, for a total of nearly four million.

“I didn’t know if the bottle he had in me was broken. I couldn’t feel it. I couldn’t feel anything,” she said in an emotional state.
The incident allegedly happened in 2015 while Depp was filming a film in Australia after a dispute broke out over his drinking habits.
