Amber Heard gets in front of the camera to speak out about the trial in a sit-down interview with NBC's Savannah Guthrie
Amber Heard has come out of hiding and is back in the limelight. And she obviously isn't speaking about the new season of Stranger Things.
The Aquaman actress sat down with NBC's Savannah Guthrie. In speaking about the trial and the verdict Heard said:
“I actually understand. He’s a beloved character and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.”
Amber Heard was sued for $50 million by her ex-husband for defamation surrounding an op-ed article in the Washington Post.
During the interview Heard also said that she was not deserving of all the hate being dished out to her via Social Media. She told Guthrie:
“Even somebody who is sure I’m deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t tell me — look me in the eye and tell me — that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation. You cannot tell me that you think that this has been fair.”
Guthrie then told Heard that the jury did not believe any of the evidence that was presented by her attorneys. In response, Heard said:
“How could they [believe me] after listening to three and a half weeks of testimony about how I was a non-credible person. Not to believe a word that came out of my mouth."
Below is a short clip of the interview. More of the interview is set to air on Tuesday and Wednesday.
