Amber Heard is worried about being sued again by her ex-husband Johnny Depp, even though she still loves him.
Heard stated this in the second half of her exclusive interview with NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie, which was her first since the high-profile defamation trial between her and Depp.
When Gutherie questioned if she “still has love” for Depp despite everything, she answered “certainly,” as she said in court during their defamation lawsuit.
“He is one of my favorite people. I adored him and would do everything for him, “Heard said. “I tried everything I could to make a profoundly broken relationship work, but it was impossible.”
While acknowledging that it may be difficult for anybody to comprehend, particularly for those who have never loved anyone before, Heard acknowledged her admiration for Johnny Depp while also acknowledging that she had no negative feelings for him.
Amber Heard said she believes “the vast bulk of this trial was played out on social media” in part one of the interviews, which aired Tuesday, and she spoke of the hostility spewed at her by Depp supporters.
In the discussion on Wednesday, after Gutherie asked Heard about a text in which Depp threatened her with “complete global disgrace,” she elaborated on her public image.
Depp filed a $50 million lawsuit against Heard, alleging that she defamed him in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed on her experience with domestic violence, but he was not named.
They were both found liable for defamation, though the jury awarded Depp significantly more damages. She countersued him for $100 million, and they were both found liable for defamation.
Heard told Guthrie that she “took for granted what I assumed was my right to speak” and that she is now afraid to say anything.
In terms of her future plans, the “Aquaman” actor stated that she can now devote her complete attention to her one-year-old kid.
The interview will air on “Dateline” on Friday at 8 p.m. EST, with a preview available on Peacock on Thursday.
