Amber Heard came out on the losing end of her high-stakes defamation trial with Johnny Depp. The public quickly chose sides in the case, with the vast majority going on the defense of Depp. Now, Amber Heard will get a chance to speak her mind to a national audience.
Deadline reported that the Aquaman star will speak publicly for the first time since the contentious legal battle. Amber Heard will sit down with Savannah Guthrie for NBC for the prime-time special. It will air at 8 PM eastern on Friday.
The interview was filmed in New York City on June 9th. Security on set was extremely tight. IT was even shot at a secret undisclosed location. A spokesperson for heard said she will be able to say more than she was on the witness stand.
“Johnny Depp’s legal team blanketed the media for days after the verdict with numerous statements and interviews on television, and Depp himself did the same on social media. Ms. Heard simply intended to respond to what they aggressively did last week; she did so by expressing her thoughts and feelings, much of which she was not allowed to do on the witness stand.”
Amber Heard talked to the “Today” co-host about her thoughts on the case. She plans to tell her whole story for the first time outside the constraints of a courtroom. It should be interesting to see what she has to say.
Heard feels she didn’t get a fair shake before what her legal team believes was a tainted jury. She will now get the opportunity to say whatever she wants. Amber is hoping this is the first step toward her public rehabilitation.
