Amber Heard Admits She Still Loves Johnny Depp Despite It All

Almost two weeks after a jury found Amber Heard had defamed ex-husband Johnny Depp, she admits she still loves him.

“Absolutely. I love him. I loved him with all my heart,” Heard told Savannah Guthrie in an exclusive interview for NBC News. “I have no bad feelings or ill will toward him at all.”

In the interview, which aired in two parts Tuesday and Wednesday, heard spoke on the trial, which was rooted in a 2018 Washington Post opinion piece in which she claimed to have survived domestic abuse.

And while she did not name Depp as an abuser in the piece – the actor’s attorneys said she cited claims she made during their 2016 divorce. Attorneys for Depp, who denies all allegations of abuse, claim the op-ed impacted his career. 

Heard fought with Depp’s lawyers for a total of six weeks, where they probed her mental health, behavior, and credibility. But despite it all, Amber informed Savannah she still has a love for the man she has accused of physical and psychological abuse and who accused her of the same.

The trial came to a close with the jury finding Heard defamed Depp and awarding Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. However, a judge reduced the punitive damages to $350,000. The jury went on to award Heard $2 million in compensatory damages in her counterclaim.

Speaking on an Instagram statement the actor issued ahead of the six-week-long defamation trial, Savannah inquired about Heard’s stating that she still loved him.

“On the first day of the trial, you issued a statement,” Savannah remarked. “And part of the statement said, ‘I still have love for Johnny.’”

Heard did not budge from the statement.

“I tried the best I could to make a deeply broken relationship work. And I couldn’t. I have no bad feelings or ill will toward him at all,” she said. “I know that might be hard to understand, or it might be really easy to understand,” she said. “If you’ve just ever loved anyone, it should be easy.”

During the trial, as well as after, Heard has not budged that her motivation for creating the piece was to be a part of the #MeToo movement. “Legions of powerful men being canceled, losing their jobs,” Savannah noted to Heard in the interview. “Did you want that to happen to Johnny Depp?”

“Of course not,” Heard replied. “It wasn’t about him.”
