During one of the hearings, Amber Heard stated how Johnny Depp was “very jealous,” when they were in a relationship and considered her male co-stars a “sexual threat.”  She continued explaining that the Sleepy Hollow actor had accused her of “having affairs with each of my co-stars.”

The London Fields actress continued, that Depp would “taunt” her about it when he was intoxicated, calling Leonardo DiCaprio as “pumpkin-head” and Channing Tatum as “potato-head” or “Jim Turd Sturgess.”

“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,” she said in the statement.”

“For example, Leonardo DiCaprio was ‘pumpkin-head,’ [Magic Mike XXL co-star] Channing Tatum was ‘potato-head’ and ‘Jim Turd Sturgess.’”

Heard continued her testimony, adding how Johnny Depp would often tell her that he knew about her affairs, despite her claims to be faithful during their relationship.


“He would try and catch me out by taking my phone or telling me someone had told him I was having an affair and act as if he had information proving it — when I really hadn’t.”

Even though Amber Heard claims that Johnny Depp had wrongly accused her of cheating on him, the chemistry between Heard and Tatum was striking in the film, and it did not end till the cameras were rolling, forcing Tatum’s then-wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum, to regularly visit the set of Magic Mike XXL.
