Amber Heard alleged that her ex-husband Johnny Depp was controlling her career and appearance. She also claimed that Depp was uncomfortable with her doing nudity.
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp separated three years ago, but their court battle continues. Just recently, Heard opened up about her ex controlling her when they were still together during the trial.
Amber Heard claimed Johnny Depp was controlling
Trust had been reportedly broken in the last stages of their two-year marriage. Depp allegedly prevented her from wearing revealing dresses on the red carpet. Besides, he also stopped her from taking parts in movies with nude scenes. Depp admitted that he was jealous.
Heard’s assistant also revealed that they didn’t share her daily schedule with Depp’s team. According to her lawyers, Heard made the decision because she feared Depp’s reaction to any nude scenes that she might be required to shoot.
Depp responded to Heard’s allegations
Johnny Depp denied Amber Heard’s allegation. According to him, he did not interfere with her wardrobe choice. Also, what he told her was only a response to what she said to him.
“Ms Heard was uncomfortable being thought of as a sex object, and she was hoping to do better films with more meat to the part, if you will, and did not want to be objectified and did not want to have to do nude scenes any more,” Depp explained.
Depp also denied that Amber Heard asked for his opinion on what she should wear or what roles she should accept.
“Well, I would never tell her what to wear, but I would certainly make mention if I thought what she was wearing was completely against the grain of what she told me her wishes were, because I did not find it very helpful to what she was looking for in terms of being taken seriously as an actress. I told her she did not have to be naked in films,” Depp continued.
Depp explained the “actress bullsh—” statement during the trial too.
“She was telling me how she did not want to be looked at as the pretty girl or did not want to have to get her breasts out or be nude in a film any more. And I said, ‘You do not have to.’ She wanted my advice, and I gave her my advice,” Depp explained.
“Unfortunately, or fortunately, she continued to do the same type of films, and I thought to myself that she was above them.”
Heard had agenda to marry Depp
During the trial, Johnny Depp also shared how Amber Heard presented herself to him. She allegedly mimicked him and pretended that they have the same interest, thoughts and taste in music and art.
He fell for Heard’s agenda. It was already too late when he realized her purpose for approaching him.
“It was not until much later that I understood that she had an agenda, namely to get married to me in order to progress her own career and/or to benefit financially, and she knew how to bring it about,” Depp said.
