Johnny Depp Thought Amber Heard Was 'Too Good To Be True' When They Started Dating

Johnny Depp Thought Amber Heard Was 'Too Good To Be True' When They Started Dating

The actor said she was 'attentive', 'loving', 'smart', 'kind', 'funny' and 'understanding' at the start of their relationship.

Johnny Depp has opened up about the beginning of his relationship with Amber Heard while testifying in his high-profile defamation case against her.

He took the stand to try and clear his name against the accusations he was a domestic abuser.

The trial has heard the couple had many fights over the years, however Depp was asked what things were like at the start.

The actor paused to find the right expression and then said: "It was as if she was too good to be true."

He added that she was 'attentive', 'loving', 'smart', 'kind', 'funny', 'understanding', and that they had 'many things in common' with each other.

Depp revealed that Heard was like this for a year or year and a half and even described his relationship as 'amazing'.

“I worked quite a lot," he explained. "When I would come home from work, I would come in the house, hotel, and she would sit me down on the couch and give me a glass of wine and take my boots off, set them to the side.

"And I’d never experienced anything like that in my life.” 

But then, something changed.

“I sat down on the couch and I took my boots off and suddenly Miss Heard approached with this look on her face and she just said, ‘What did you just do?’” Depp said.

“Within a year, year and a half, she had become another person, almost.”

Heard seemed unmoved by the claims while she sat in the courtroom.

The pair was married from 2015 to 2017. When they broke up, Heard published an article in The Washington Post about being an abuse survivor, however she never named Depp directly.

Depp also took aim at Heard’s allegations against him, calling her claim to have been a victim of domestic abuse 'quite heinous and disturbing'.

Depp decided to sue her for defamation, arguing that the claims made in the op-ed derailed his career.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star explained when he took the stand at Fairfax County courthouse in Virginia that he has never assaulted his ex-wife.

"Never did I myself reach the point of striking Miss Heard in anyway, nor have I ever struck any woman in my life," he explained.

"Since I knew there was no truth to it whatsoever, I felt it my responsibility to stand up, not only for myself in that instance, but stand up for my children."

Depp went on to discuss his children, who were 14 and 16 at the time the allegations gained international attention, saying he thought it was 'diabolical' that they'd have friends or people at school approach them with the People magazine cover that featured Heard with a bruise on her face.

He continued: "I was always a very private person, so for me to come up here and sit before you all and spill the truth is quite exposing, and it's unfortunate that it's not only exposing for myself, it's exposing for my family, it's exposing for Miss Heard, it never had to go in this direction."

But the actor said that he can't say it's embarrassing, adding: "I know I’m doing the right thing."

Depp has called Heard's allegations against him 'heinous', 'disturbing' and 'not based in any species of truth'.
