Johnny Depp lashed out after body double had sex scene, Amber Heard testifies

After mistaking Amber Heard for a body double taking part in a sex scene in the film London FieldsJohnny Depp slapped the actress in the face and punched her in the jaw in blind rage, she testified Monday.

“I didn’t actually film the scene. He demanded that we look at it,” Heard said on the witness stand, adding, “So I have an incredibly jealous man who’s already mad at me for breaking the ‘rule’ about being in a sex scene. He was angry. He called me a liar and a whore.”

Heard said the incident quickly turned violent at a remote French chateau where the two lived alone, claiming Depp at one point “slapped me in the face in the bedroom, in the chateau where we were staying.”

“Another moment he punched me in the jaw. At one point he pushed or threw…. I flew into this old church furniture,” Heard added. “Later I thought I had a concussion.”

The violent outburst was just another example of the abuse Heard endured during her explosive, short-lived union with the actor. After a week-long hiatus in her civil defamation lawsuit against Depp, Heard, more stoic on the stand in Fairfax County, Va., added that after the fight she found a folder on the ex-husband’s computer titled “No fun for JD.”

In the folder, she said, are photos of her “on different red carpets.”

Heard is trying to settle a $50 million defamation lawsuit Depp filed against her, claiming it “devastated” his career after it was published in 2018 Washington Post op ed. In the play, which didn’t mention Depp’s name but years after Heard filed for a restraining order against him, the actress appeared as a domestic violence survivor. Heard has since sued Depp for $100 million and alleged defamation after at least one of his ex-lawyers claimed her account was a “hoax”.

Throughout the trial, Depp and his legal team have portrayed Heard as a physically and verbally abusive liar who essentially takes advantage of the MeToo movement. Heard’s team began telling her story two weeks ago, painting a picture of serial, drug-fueled domestic violence at the hands of Depp.

A source close to Heard told The Daily Beast last week that after the actress finishes her own testimony and will be cross-examined this week, her legal team will call Depp and actress Ellen Barkin – who has accused the actor of drinking a wine having thrown the bottle at her in the 1990s — on the stand. Heard’s sister, Whitney Henriquez, was also willing to testify sometime after Aquaman Actress finishes her own testimony.

“There’s an old litigator’s adage: if the facts are on your side, argue the facts. If the facts aren’t on your side, hit the podium,” a spokesman for Heard told The Daily Beast on Monday. “Today we expect that Depp’s lawyers will instead beat the victim. We fear it will be equal parts embarrassing and desperate. And the overwhelming evidence – the truth – is not on Depp’s side.”

“The one thing we suspect Depp’s attorneys will avoid is the central question of this trial: Does Amber or any other woman have the first amendment right to free speech?” the rep added.

Two weeks ago, an often emotional Heard told jurors how her relationship with Depp turned violent in 2012 after the couple got into a fight over the actor’s tattoo that read “Wino forever” in a former tribute to Winona Ryder. The duo met on the set of the 2011 film The Rum diary and were married in 2015.

“It will change your life forever. You never forget that,” Heard said Monday of the first time she claimed Depp hit her.

Heard also reported multiple incidents of abuse, noting Monday that the pair’s fights were so normalized that they even created the safe word “couch,” which could be invoked during one of their fights to indicate relaxation. “[Couch was] a word like “truce,” where you put down the proverbial arms and say, “We’re not fighting anymore,” Heard said. “Unfortunately, just towards the end, the violence became almost normal.”

In an audio recording played in court on Monday, Heard calls Depp “a baby” for claiming he was hit – a case the actress said on the witness stand showed the “inequality in our struggles”. Heard admitted that she punched Depp at her Los Angeles penthouse during that altercation, but only after he punched her first.

“No matter what I did, he still hit me,” Heard said, adding that she tried to take as much responsibility as possible to de-escalate the situation.

Heard also mentioned the aftermath of a harrowing incident in Australia in 2015, in which Depp allegedly repeatedly penetrated her vagina with a liquor bottle, which ultimately caused her to vomit. After the attack, which she said left scars on her arms, Depp was “obliged to get clean,” and the couple even talked about having children and buying a farm in Australia.

“I thought he was going to hit me, I felt this pressure on my pubic bone … I remember looking around the room,” Heard said of the incident on the stand two weeks ago. “I remember looking at all the broken bottles and glass and I remember just not wanting to move because I didn’t know if it was broken or if the bottle he had in me had, was broken. I couldn’t feel it, I didn’t feel pain, I felt nothing… I just remember thinking, ‘Please God, please, I hope it’s not broken.'”

Depp’s abuse isn’t just limited to Heard, the actress claimed Monday. She said she witnessed Depp harm himself at least once and almost called 911 in 2014 after seeing him put out cigarettes for himself.
