Heard also said that Depp regularly accused her of having affairs with her male co-stars one movie after another. The celebrities that Depp accused Heard of having an affair with include Eddie Redmayne, Jim Sturgess, Kevin Costner, Liam Hemsworth, Billy Bob Thornton, Franco, and Tatum.
“He also accused me of having affairs with stars I auditioned with, like Leonardo DiCaprio. He would taunt me about it – especially when he was drunk or high – and had derogatory nicknames for every one of my male co-stars he considered a sexual threat,” Heard said.
Amber Heard reportedly only became abusive to Depp to defend herself
The Rum Diary star also responded to the claims that she was the one who’s physically violent towards her ex-husband. Heard said she only started to defend herself from Depp years into their relationship. Before this, Heard, reportedly, just checked out.
Heard also responded to the allegations that she might have lied about the bruises and marks on her face and body. Depp’s lawyer said that when the actress went out a few days after the alleged assault incident, there were no marks on her face.

Depp’s former security guard, Rick Wood also took to the stand to defend the actor and expose Heard.
Wood said that Johnny Depp is very laid back and similar to his character Jack Sparrow.
