The Johnny Depp – Amber Heard defamation trial went on for weeks and it seemed that the whole world was fixed on the case. It was a high-stakes battle. In the end, however, Johnny Depp prevailed and secured a massive sum of money as damages for the defamation done by Heard.
On the other hand, Amber Heard lost and was also at the receiving end of criticism and ridicule in the media. She recently gave a one-hour interview to NBC News where she opened up about her thoughts on the case. In the interview, she attacked Camille Vasquez, Depp’s lawyer.
Amber Heard Attacks Camille Vasquez
Heard seemed to pull no punches when she was asked about comments made by Camille Vasquez in the trial, by NBC News. The Aquaman star said: “Says the lawyer for the man who convinced the world he had scissors for fingers,” I’m the performer? I had listened to weeks of testimony insinuating that — or saying quite directly — that I’m a terrible actress.“ So I’m a bit confused how I could be both,”
When asked about the lawyers in the case, she said: “I will say his lawyers did certainly a better job of distracting the jury from the real issues,”
On the other hand, Vasquez too had not-so-nice things to say about Amber Heard in the trial. In her opening arguments, she had said, “She has been living and breathing this lie for years now, and she has been preparing to give the performance of her life in this trial,”
And the famed lawyer said this, during the closing arguments: “She came into this courtroom prepared to give the performance of her life, and she gave it.”
It seems that the long and hard-fought trial has made the parties bitter. What do you think of Amber Heard’s comments on Camille Vasquez? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
