Amber Heard is speaking out and showing her face for the first time since losing big in the Johnny Depp case — saying she holds no ill-will toward the jury, but social media is another story.
The actress sat down for an interview with ‘Today,’ which is going to be aired in pieces throughout the week … but right out the gate, NBC is teasing a couple juicy soundbites from her chat with Savannah Guthrie in which AH gets into her feelings about the trial.
For starters, she discusses the social media coverage — which was overwhelmingly in favor of her ex, Johnny Depp, and which she was clearly aware of during the 6-week proceedings.
She says even if you don’t believe her/think she lied, you can’t deny the posts in the digital world have been lopsided, suggesting there hasn’t been a “fair representation” of both sides online.
Interestingly, Amber’s attorney, Elaine Bredehoft, also tried to deflect blame toward the viral aspect of the saga, rather than take ownership of the loss.
As for the 7 men and women who said they didn’t buy her account, Amber says there’s no hard feelings, but she thinks it was Depp’s personality and super-stardom that won them over.
Watch the clip, she seems to think JD charmed their pants off, and she also believes the fact Depp’s side was able to present witnesses first also helped.
While Guthrie seemingly tries to point out Amber lost because her team presented a poor case, so far … it doesn’t sound like Amber is accepting that as a reality for how things went.
