Amber Heard says she 'absolutely' still loves Johnny Depp after defamation trial

Amber Heard claims she still has feelings for her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

Heard admitted that she is not a "perfect victim" and that she still loves Depp despite their "seriously broken relationship" in the second part of her first interview since the defamation trial.

The 36-year-old Aquaman star was speaking to NBC News' Savannah Guthrie on the Today show when she made the comments

which came just two weeks after she was forced to pay over $10 million in damages to Depp for defamation.

When asked if she still has feelings for Johnny Depp, Heard said, "Absolutely." He is one of my favourite people. 

I genuinely cared about him and did everything I could to salvage a shattered relationship. I couldn't do it.

"I have no ill will or nasty feelings against him," she stated emphatically. "I realise that may be difficult to comprehend.

Depp pledged in a text message to a buddy that he would bring her "complete global disgrace," and the interviewer asked Heard if he had succeeded in bringing her "total global humiliation."

Amber Heard said, "I know he promised it." "This is something I testified about. I understand that I am not a good victim.

 I'm not a particularly sympathetic victim. I'm not a victim who is without flaws.But, when I testified, I requested that the jury perceive me as a human being, and it appears that he has done so in his own words, which is a pledge to do so."

Heard insisted that her op-ed for The Washington Post in 2018 — the subject of Depp's $50 million defamation suit – was about abuse in the context of the #MeToo movement, not just the Pirates star.

She clarified, "The op-ed was not about my connection with Johnny." "The op-ed was about me lending my voice to a larger cultural discourse we were having at the time," she says.
