The world is waiting for the outcome of the trial. Also, with the trial available online, the clips are being edited going viral all over social media. It is almost hard to know what is true and what is just edited. Fans are even coming up with crazy theories. Recently, it has been claimed that Amber Heard lifted testimony from The Talented Mr. Ripley. But has she?
Amber Heard lifted testimony from The Talented Mr. Ripley
On May 6, the actress testified against her ex-husband. She shared details of the times the actor allegedly abused her. A Twitter user @TheBuzzerUK shared a tweet that compared Heard’s opening statement to the lines from The Talented Mr. Ripley. While another Twitter account @AuditTheAbsurd also compared the two. They wrote, “OMFG. Check this out. Amber Heard on the stand yesterday and what she said compared to the lines in The Talented Mr. Ripley. Holy smokes this is CRAZY. #JusticeForJohnnyDepp.”
The lines from the film are, “The thing with Dickie… it’s like the sun shines on you, and it’s glorious. And then he forgets you and it’s very, very cold … When you have his attention, you feel like you’re the only person in the world, that’s why everybody loves him so much.”
While the alleged opening statement of Amber Heard is, “The thing with Johnny… it’s like the sun shines on you, and it’s glorious. And then he forgets you and it’s very, very cold ….”
Amber Heard did not copy her testimony
After fact-checking the tweets, it was found that the rumors were false. She did not lift her opening statement from The Talented Mr. Ripley. Her real opening statement was, “When I was around Johnny I felt like the most beautiful person in the world—then he would disappear.” Though there are certain similarities in the statement it is not what the Twitter users claimed it to be.
With Amber Heard finally taking the stand this week. The Aquaman star has presented her case with a lot of details. She has been receiving a lot of hatred on social media as the number of Johnny Depp fans is far more than hers.
