Amber Heard is set to interviewed by Savannah Guthrie, marking her first public interview following the verdict of the defamation trial with Johnny Depp. The one-hour primetime interview airs this Friday, June 17 on NBC.
Amber Heard says she understands why a Virginia jury reached their verdict in favor of her ex-husband Johnny Depp “I don’t blame them. I actually understand. He’s a beloved character and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.” she added, “Even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation.“
Amber Heard lost $45 million to $50 million in endorsements and TV and film income over claims that she faked domestic violence allegations against ex-husband Johnny Depp. Depp was awarded $15 million in damages, including $5 million in punitive damages, which the judge capped at $350,000, the legal limit in Virginia. In total, he is entitled to $10.35 million. The jury awarded Heard $2 million, with the finding that former Depp attorney Adam Waldman had defamed her.

A statement made available to ET by a spokesperson for Amber Heard made reference to Depp’s first TikTok, where he talked about “moving forward” after the verdict, but said that in her opinion, the rights of women are moving in the other direction. The statement reads…
As Johnny Depp says he’s ‘moving forward,’ women’s rights are moving backward. The verdict’s message to victims of domestic violence is…be afraid to stand up and speak out.
