In her testimony, the actress revealed the intention behind writing the op-ed in the Washington Post. She said, “I believed in some of the causes that the op-ed was seeking to advance. There was a lot of intention and energy around gender-based issues and gender-based violence issues in general. I just recently had become the ambassador for the ACLU.” She also added that she wanted to lend her voice to the cause. Also, to support the gender issues the country was having at the time.

The lawyer also asked if the article was written as a way to promote her upcoming movie, Aquaman. To which the actress replied that her intentions were quite the opposite. She wanted to use the popularity of her character and the movie to support the cause that was being dealt with in the op-ed. She also said that the op-ed was about women facing backlash when they speak up against stronger men. Also, she added that Johnny Depp was proving her point with the trial.
