Johnny Depp: There’s No Way I Could Have Abused Amber Heard! | Wireler
There was a time — not all that way back, in actual fact — when folks truly seemed ahead to the promotional excursions that preceded the discharge of Johnny Depp’s big-budget studio movies.
Depp was Hollywood’s most charming oddball, and followers liked the thought of the notoriously press-shy actor being lured away from a lot cooler pursuits — presumably smoking opium with Keith Richards or one thing — to offer a pointy distinction to the sunny demeanor of some bubbly morning present host.
But an entire lot has modified for the reason that days when Depp used to mumble his means by pre-taped interviews with Matt Lauer.
And evidently, it is all been dangerous.
Over the previous few years, the once-beloved actor’s popularity has taken one hit after one other.
Last yr, Depp sued his administration workforce, and the weird court docket battle that ensued painted an image of a drug-addled egomaniac who’s vulnerable to bullying and endangering the much less highly effective for the sake of his personal amusement.
In June, Rolling Stone revealed an interview with Depp that appeared to verify suspicions that years of heavy substance abuse and a variety of poisonous persona traits had brought on the 55-year-old to rework right into a kind of unhappy self-parody.
But nothing did extra harm to Depp’s public picture than his ugly divorce from Amber Heard.
Heard accused Depp of savagely beating her, and secretly recorded video (under) confirmed a heavily-intoxicated Depp berating his then-wife.
Most actors would have launched into an apology tour after one thing like that, however Depp maintained his innocence, and in a stunning new interview with British GQ, he is doubling down and as soon as once more claiming that Heard is the true bully:
Asked point-blank if he ever hit abused Heard, Depp had this to say:
“To hurt somebody you like? As a form of bully? No, it didn’t, it couldn’t even sound like me.
“So, initially, I simply stored my mouth shut, you realize? I knew it was going to stay on me and it will get weirder. Keep going, you realize? Go nuts. I ain’t going to get right into a pissing contest with somebody about it.
“Spit out what you must spit out and, you realize, my attorneys will deal with the remainder. I by no means went out and spoke concerning the sh-t.”
Yes, evidently within the basic style of Hollywood egomaniacs all through historical past, Depp believed his attorneys would make the entire mess go away.
He went on to supply up a type of “well, why didn’t she report it sooner?” arguments that we have been listening to solely an excessive amount of of currently:
“Why didn’t that person speak to the police? I mean, they spoke to the police, but the police saw nothing and they offered her an emergency medical technician,” Depp mentioned.
“She said no. Police see nothing on her. Police see nothing broken in the place, no marks, and then they offer her an EMT to have a look at her and she says no and I don’t know if it was the next day or a couple of days later, but then there was a bruise,” he added.
“There was a red mark and then there was a brown bruise…. She was at a party the next day. Her eye wasn’t closed. She had her hair over her eye, but you could see the eye wasn’t shut.”
Depp concluded his feedback on Heard by stating that it will be “stupid” to hit her, and including:
“I would possibly look silly, however I ain’t f–king silly.”
We’re unsure about that, Johnny … you are actually sounding awfully silly lately.
