Amber Heard’s New Interview Isn’t ‘Vindictive,’ She Claims: ‘This Would Be a Horrible Way to Get Retaliation.’

Amber Heard’s New Interview Isn’t ‘Vindictive,’ She Claims: ‘This Would Be a Horrible Way to Get Retaliation.’

Amber Heard explains her reasons for speaking out after the Johnny Depp verdict in a nationally aired interview.

An Amber Heard: After the Verdict special appeared on Peacock Thursday, including largely of excerpts that were pushed out on the Today show earlier this week, ahead of NBC News’ complete Dateline special airing Friday on NBC. The 20-minute programme, on the other hand, was peppered with new moments.

Savannah Guthrie began by asking Heard, 36, why she agreed to do the interview, which was her first on-camera interview since the contentious June 1 verdict. “You’ve arrived. Some may inquire as to why. Are you a brave person? Are you a risk taker? Are you vengeful? Why did you want to undertake an interview in the first place? “Guthrie, 50, enquired.

“One thing I can tell you is one thing I’m not is vindictive. There’s no part of me that sees any…. This would be a really lousy way to get vengeance,” said the actress with a laugh. Guthrie then asked, “What do you hope to get across here? You’ve had everything said about you. What do you wish people knew?”

“You know, Savannah, as silly as it is to say this out loud,” Heard responded, “my goal, the only thing I could hope for at this point, is I just want people to see me as a human being.”

Despite the trial and their rocky relationship, she told Guthrie that she still has feelings for Depp, 59. “I have no ill will or unpleasant feelings toward him at all,” Heard stated, acknowledging that “that could be difficult to understand.” She also described herself as a “survivor” and stated she will stand by every word of her testimony “till my dying day.”
When Guthrie reminded out that Depp testified that he never hit Heard and that none of Depp’s past partners had ever accused him of being physically abusive, Heard responded: “Take a look at what happened to me when I spoke up. Would you do it?”
In a Virginia defamation case brought by ex-husband Depp, a seven-person jury generally sided with him, awarding him more than $10 million in damages. They determined that Heard defamed Depp in her 2018 op-ed, despite the fact that she didn’t mention him by name. A jury also awarded Heard $2 million in damages after deciding Depp defamed her through his lawyer, which was one of the three accusations she made in her countersuit. She intends to appeal the decision.
“It’s unfortunate that while Johnny is looking to move forward with his life, the defendant and her team are back to repeating, reimagining, and re-litigating matters that have already been decided by the Court and a verdict that was unanimously and unequivocally decided by a jury in Johnny’s favour,” a spokesperson for Depp told NBC News in response to the interview.
Heard’s spokeswoman said in a statement before to the revelation of the tell-all interview, “For days after the verdict, Johnny Depp’s legal team bombarded the media with comments and interviews on television, and Depp himself did the same on social media. Ms. Heard merely wanted to respond to their violent behaviour last week, and she did so by expressing her thoughts and feelings, which she was not permitted to do much of on the witness stand.”
