Amber Heard Says Johnny Depp Achieved His Goal Of Globally Humiliating Her
| Last updated
Amber Heard has called her defamation loss against ex-husband Johnny Depp as the most 'horrible thing' she has ever gone through.
During the defamation case, Heard told the court that Depp promised that 'he would ruin me, that he would ruin my career'.
She added: "He promised global humiliation."
In an interview with Savannah Guthrie on NBC, Heard revealed that her ex-husband has certainly succeeded in that mission.
"This was the most humiliating and horrible thing I've ever been through," Heard told Guthrie.
In the NBC interview Heard insisted that she 'always told the truth' and she 'paid the price' for it.
"You know, I made a lot of mistakes. A lot of mistakes. But I've always told the truth," the Aquaman star said.
Heard added that while she stands by her claims against her ex-husband, she does admit that her behaviour was not without fault during the relationship.
"I will always continue to feel like I was a part of this, like I was the other half of this relationship because I was,” the 36-year-old said.
“And it was ugly, and it could be very beautiful, it was very, very toxic. We were awful to each other."
In another segment, Guthrie brought up the viewers who were 'disgusted' by the trial and 'don't have much sympathy' for either of them.
When asked if she could understand this perspective, Heard replied: "Absolutely. I would not blame the average person for looking at this and how it's been covered and not think that it is Hollywood brats at their worst."
Johnny Depp won his defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard on June 1.
The jury unanimously found in favour of Johnny Depp, finding that what Amber Heard wrote in her op-ed piece for The Washington Post was defamatory, and awarded him $15 million ($AUD 20.6 million, £11.9 million) in damages.
These charges were later capped at $10.35 million (AU $14.2 million, £8.2 million) by Judge Penny Azcarate.
The jury awarded Heard $2 million ($AUD 2.7 million £1.5 million) in compensatory damages, finding that in her countersuit, Heard did not prove all elements of defamation.
The second part of the NBC special aired Wednesday (15 June) on the network's Today show.
The full interview will be released on Friday (17 June) on Dateline NBC.
