Amber Heard said he would not blame the jury for the defamation battle with his ex-husband Johnny Depp.
The 36-year-old actress also details the “hate and vitriol” she faced online in a clip of an upcoming interview with NBC Today journalist Savannah Guthrie.
The full interview (for the first time since the Virginia trial ended two weeks ago) will air on the Dateline program this week, today and Friday.
In the preview, Hard said of the jury: I really understand. He is a beloved character and people feel he knows him. He is a great actor. “
In response, Guthrie said: Their job was to see facts and evidence, and they did not believe in your testimony or evidence. “
“Again, how can I disbelieve the words that come out of my mouth after hearing the three and a half weeks of testimony that I was an unreliable person?”
Regarding the message she received online, she said:
“I don’t think the average person should know them, so I don’t take it personally.
“But even those who are convinced that I deserve such hatred and Vitriol can’t see me, even if I think I’m lying, and are fair on social media. Expression.
“I don’t think this is fair.”
The jury inflicted $ 10.35 million (£ 8.2 million) in damages to Depp in a 2018 article by Hard on the Washington Post about her experience as a survivor of domestic violence. I found that.
Depp’s press responded to her counterclaim, alleging that her allegations were “abuse hoaxes” aimed at taking advantage of the #MeToo movement, and that she had successfully defamed her. I won with one count.
The jury has inflicted $ 2 million (£ 1.5 million) in damages to her.
Since the deliberation began, Depp has been on stage during a UK tour with veteran rock guitarist Jeff Beck (77), who recently also released a collaboration album.
Deadline reported that the interview was filmed in New York on Thursday, June 9th, under strict security and secrecy.
Depp had previously lost a similar trial in Britain and filed it with the publisher of the Sun newspaper after an article in 2018 that called him a “beater of his wife.”
The Hard interview will first air on Tuesday and Wednesday in the NBC News Today program, with more sit-in broadcasts on Friday’s special Dateline Show.
The interview will be available on Today.com after the broadcast.
