Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s trial captured the attention of the whole world and it is not hard to see why. The two are locked in a legal battle. The actress recently claimed that Depp did not assist her in obtaining a role in the DC film, to which her ex-husband replied that “it’s not exactly true.”
In his defamation trial against Amber Heard, Johnny Depp testified that he helped win her breakout role as Mera in Aquaman. According to The Hollywood Reporter, He spoke with Warner Bros. officials who were concerned about Heard’s legal difficulties in Australia, where the film was shot. Heard was charged in Australia for bringing her pets into the country illegally in 2016.
In exchange for the charges being dropped, Heard agreed to plead guilty to making a false customs declaration by claiming she had no animals when she arrived. Depp added that after Heard auditioned for Warner Bros. in 2015, she was concerned about Warner Bros.’ reservations regarding her ability to shoot in Australia. He recalled how she requested him to speak to the studio.
I made a phone call, and I spoke to three upper-echelon Warner executives, Kevin Tsujihara, Sue Kroll, Greg Silverman. I can only say that, ultimately, she did get the job in the film. Hopefully, I had curbed their worries to some degree.
On Tuesday, DC Films president Walter Hamada testified that Heard’s Mera in Aquaman was nearly recast owing to “chemistry” concerns with star Jason Momoa. The testimony contradicted Heard’s assertion that she was on the verge of being booted from the film because her ex-husband portrayed her abuse allegations as a fake.
Depp was supposed to testify as a witness Monday during Heard’s case in chief, but he didn’t show up. The trial will come to a close on Friday with closing arguments. To get latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
