People Baffled By Heard’s Claims That Depp ‘Convinced The World He Had Scissors For Fingers’
| Last updated
In her first interview since her loss in the defamation battle against Johnny Depp, Amber Heard has left viewers baffled by saying the actor 'convinced the world he had scissors for fingers'. You can watch the clip below:
The Aquaman star opened up to NBC News' Savannah Guthrie about the highly-publicised trial, with a segment of the one-hour special aired this morning, 14 June, on the network's TODAY show.
While many of her latest statements have been reported on, none have left people quite so perplexed as the reference to Depp's 1990 film Edward Scissorhands.
The moment came about when Guthrie highlighted how Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez described Heard's testimony in the trial as 'the performance of a lifetime'.
To which Heard replied: "Says the lawyer for the man who convinced the world he had scissors for fingers? I'm the performer?
"I had listened to weeks of testimony insinuating that or saying quite directly that I'm a terrible actress. So I'm a bit confused how I could be both."
It didn't take long for the online community to latch onto the bizarre comparison, with many questioning over whether the clip was edited – news flash: it wasn't.
"I had to watch the whole thing BC I thought it must be one of those bad lip reading things," said one. "I'm just aghast!"
Another quipped, "I hate to tell you this Amber, but they were gloves," while a third chimed in, "She's genuinely lost the plot."
A fourth joked: "I'll never forget the disappointment and anger I felt after we were all told that Edward Scissorhands wasn't a biopic. Never really forgiven Depp for that."
Elsewhere in the interview, the 36-year-old actor admitted she did 'horrible regrettable things' in her relationship with Depp but that she 'always told the truth'.
In response to the claim she 'never took responsibility for anything', Heard said: "I did do and say horrible, regrettable things throughout my relationship. I behaved in a horrible, almost unrecognisable to myself ways."
She explained that she has 'so much regret', adding: "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.
"And it was ugly, and it could be very beautiful, it was very, very toxic. We were awful to each other.
"You know, I made a lot of a lot of mistakes. A lot of mistakes. But I've always told the truth."
Another segment of the NBC special airs tomorrow, 15 June, on TODAY before the full interview is released on Friday, 17 June, on Dateline NBC.
