Heard’s in-depth interview with Savannah Guthrie on NBC’s TODAY show revealed the revelation. At the start of the segment on Tuesday, the ‘Aquaman’ actress talked about seeing crowds of people waving signs calling for her death.
According to her, she still has romantic feelings for Depp, as she stood by the allegations of violence against him at trial:
“I love him. I loved him with all my heart. And I tried the best I could to make a deeply broken relationship work. I couldn’t. No bad feelings or ill will towards him at all. I know that might be hard to understand, or it might be really easy to understand. If you’ve ever loved anyone, it should be easy.”
Her interview also revealed that she fears Depp, with whom she shared a four-year relationship before splitting in 2016, may sue her again.
“I’m scared that no matter what I do, no matter what I say or how I say it, every step that I take will present another opportunity for this sort of silencing, which is what I guess a defamation lawsuit is meant to do. It’s meant to take your voice.”
In addition, she admitted the trial fulfilled Depp’s promise in a text message that she would suffer “total global humiliation” if the trial went forward.
She said: “I’m not a good victim, I get it. I’m not a likable victim. I’m not a perfect victim. When I testified, I asked the jury to just see me as human and hear his own words, which is a promise to do this. It feels as though he has.”
When asked what she would do now, Heard replied:
“I get to be a mom like full-time, where I’m not having to juggle calls with lawyers.”
Guthrie questioned how she would one day go about explaining what she’d been through to her 1-year-old daughter, Oonagh Paige Heard.
Heard answered: “I think no matter what, it will mean something. I did the right thing. I did everything I could to stand up for myself and the truth.”
