Johnny Depp Breaks His Silence About Amber Heard

The actor grants an extensive interview in which he admits that it was painful to be defined that way.

Johnny Depp Breaks His Silence: Amber Heard complained of physical and verbal attacks during her relationship in 2016, Johnny Depp’s career has never been able to return to the status that he enjoyed before 2016.

Perhaps one of the best examples of this is the reaction in social networks to his signing for Fantastic Beasts, the new saga of the universe of Harry Potter in which the actor will play the villain Gellert Grindelwald. Himself Daniel Radcliffe showed his displeasure in an interview a few months ago. Radcliffe compared the treatment a castmate had received in the original Harry Potter movies, which they fired for possession of marijuana, with the “far worse” accusations that have been made against Depp. Now, with the premiere of Fantastic Beasts: The Grindelwald Crimes so close, the actor has finally stopped much of what has been written about the accusations against him.

“The last three or four years have been like a perverse situation that has hurt me,” says Depp in an extensive (and intense) interview with GQ UK. The actor describes the Hollywood industry “bloody infamous circle” that has allowed many powerful Hollywood figures to try to silence him. “There were people suing me for anything, it’s very obvious, look, I knew I was never going to be Cinderella, I know and I accept it, but it was as if in a very, very short period of time, that version of Cinderella that was I would have been immediately transformed into that of the beast … In Quasimodo … I could feel how people looked at me differently because of the accusations against me … And then people started writing those things in magazines: ‘He’s crazy. to do an analysis of sanity. “You know, ridiculous things, but all I could do was know what I still know. In the end, the truth will come out and I’ll be standing on the right side of the roaring rapids. I hope other people are too. I know the truth. And if I had to get away from everything today; of my work, my career, everything, and disappear, it’s worth it “.

The narrative around Depp as a violent person is something that has stayed very close to his career. Last May, several sources told PageSix that Depp had assaulted a LAbyrinth employee after spending the day drinking. The director of the film denied everything. But it is Heard’s accusations that still reverberate.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor was never officially accused of gender-based violence and the dispute with Heard was resolved behind closed doors and without leaks to the press, but the image of Heard with the right eye in purple on a selfie widely published in the media continues very valid in the framework of Depp’s career. The actor defends that the day in which he allegedly threw Heard an iPhone in the face after an argument in May 2016, the actress did not let the medical services attend her and that the police did not see signs of the aggression.

“She was at a party the next day and did not have her eye closed,” Depp says of the photos. In an image of Amanda de Cadenet’s party that was deleted from Instagram shortly after its publication, Heard appeared posing next to two friends with hair covering his right eye. “I had hair over my eye, but you could see it was not closed, I was seven meters away from her, how the hell are I going to hit her? Something that, by the way, is the last thing I would have done, I may seem stupid, but I’m not so fucking stupid. “

Journalist Jonathan Heaf explains in his Depp profile that with his interview he does not intend to do a piece of research on what happened between the actor and Heard, but to ask Depp for his version of the story, one that had not yet been heard from. so direct way. Depp is also concerned about what readers can conclude about their words. “We probably should not be talking about this,” says Depp at one point in the conversation. “But I’m worried, I’m worried that people have believed it and I’m worried about it, it’s not right, I’ll never stop fighting, never, they’ll have to shoot me, an episode like this takes time to get through, it’s a period of mourning over someone you thought was … good, something … I ended up marrying her in some way.

“What hurt me was that they presented me as something that is as far away as possible from who I really am,” confesses Depp. “I’ve said it on previous occasions if a paparazzi gets his picture, he’s far away and takes a picture of my son and me, well, that’s his role, but if I catch you, I’ll eat your ear. I’ll chew it and swallow it in front of you and you’ll think twice next time, I mean it, but … […] hurt someone you love, like a bully? I do not even look like who I am, so at the beginning, I kept my mouth shut, you know, I knew it was something that would chase me and that would degenerate, move on, you know, go crazy, I’m not going to get into a contest to see who pisses further with someone about it, release what you have to release and, you know, my lawyers will take care of the rest. I never went out to talk about all this shit. “

But for Depp it is important what his family and children can think about it: “I know it was not easy for my 14-year-old son to go to school, you know what I mean? With people saying, ‘Hey, look at this magazine, uncle, what’s up, your father hits the aunts or what? “Why did he have to go through this? Why did my daughter have to go through that?”
