Amber Heard Says Loads Of Her Scenes From Aquaman 2 Have Been Removed
| Last updated
Amber Heard has revealed to a jury in Virginia that loads of scenes from her upcoming film, Aquaman 2, have been cut since she spoke out about her relationship with Johnny Depp.
Depp has sued his ex-wife for defamation after she wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post in 2018, where she alleged she was a survivor of domestic abuse.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star claimed the article ruined has career as he was subsequently booted from the huge Disney franchise, as well as from Fantastic Beasts 3.
However, Heard has revealed how her acting career has also suffered since she made allegations against her ex-husband.
She told the court (via Entertainment Weekly): "I had to fight really hard to keep my career after I got my [restraining order against Depp].
"I lost opportunities. I got dropped from jobs and campaigns.
"I fought to keep my job and the biggest movie opportunity I had to date [with] Justice League with the option to [star in] Aquaman.
"I had to fight really hard to stay in Justice League because that was the time of the divorce."
She added that while she managed to nab the role of a lifetime in the superhero flick, where she starred alongside Jason Momoa, the sequel has been a bit of a rocky road since her messy divorce was made public.
Heard said she had to fight hard for her spot in the Aquaman 2 film but her role in the movie has been gradually reduced.
"I was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it, that depicted my character and another character, without giving any spoiler aways, two characters fighting with one another, and they basically took a bunch out of my role," Heard testified.
"They just removed a bunch out."
According to Entertainment Weekly, Heard will only appear in about 10 minutes of the sequel.
Warner Bros. hasn't responded to the claims that her role has been cut down since she came forward with allegations about her ex-husband.
She said that she hasn't been cast in many other roles in the last few years.
"I have done one small independent film," she told the court. "I shot a film in Guatemala. It's a small independent, meaning it doesn't have distribution or anything; it's a lower budget film that I had been attached to for many years called Into the Fire."
