Amber Heard flinched when Johnny Depp walked up to her in tense face-to-face after she gave her testimony on Wednesday.
Before the moment, Heard, 26, told the court room that Johnny Depp, her divorced husband, had threatened to kill her in 2015 and sexually penetrated her with a liquor bottle.
In the tense moment, Depp can be seen turning away then shrugging and kind of smiling as Heard can be seen wincing.
Depp is seeking $50 million in damages after a Washington Post op-ed in which Amber said that she was the victim of violence. Depp has repeatedly denied the charges and his legal team has consistently argued that his reputation and career were damaged because of her allegations.
Heard said that in a fight in 2015 while they were in Australia that Depp took MDMA and then argued with Heard about if she had slept with Eddie Redmayne, a co star in her movie at the time. Heard said that Depp threw her on the table and then “whacked her.”
Heard said that Depp had been drinking and then used a broken bottle to tell her that he would “carve” her face with it.
Depp had previously recalled that night and said Heard through a vodka bottle at him and severed his fingertip. Heard didn’t recall this.
“I remember being terrified,” Heard said on the stand. “I couldn’t move. I couldn’t go anywhere.”
“At some point he’s on top of me, screaming I f**king hate you, you ruined my f**king life,’ Heard testified through tears. ‘I’m on the countertop, he had me by the neck and was on top of me.”
Heard continued later getting emotional,
‘Next thing I remember I was bent over backwards on the bar, I was staring at the blue light. My back was on the countertop. I thought he was punching me. I felt this pressure on my pubic bone and I could feel his arm moving. It looked like he was punching me. I could just feel this pressure.”
Depp’s legal team is claiming that the actress is changing her story conveniently and look forward to exposing her on cross-examination.
