Johnny Depp ‘Excited’ for Comeback, Amber Heard Has ‘New Energy’ 1 Year After Trial Began

Posted April 12, 2023 by: Admin #News

In June 2021, Johnny Depp won his defamation case against Amber Heard, who was found liable on all three counts of defamation related to her 2018 op-ed about abuse allegations. The trial was televised and controversial, lasting six weeks. Heard was ordered to pay $10.35 million in damages, while Depp was to pay $2 million due to her winning one of the three claims in her countersuit. Both parties made appeals, but they eventually settled in December, with Heard paying Depp $1 million to be donated to various charities.


A source close to Heard reported to PEOPLE that the actress and her daughter Oonagh Paige, who turned 2 years old recently, left the US for Spain after the trial. The source stated that Heard felt stressed during the trial and wanted to start fresh in a more private location. Despite feeling exhausted and disappointed by the trial, Heard is excited to get back to work and is focused on things that she loves.

After the trial, Johnny Depp has been focused on work, according to an insider close to the actor. Depp toured with guitarist Jeff Beck last year and returns to the big screen in the upcoming French-language film Jeanne Du Barry, which will open the prestigious Cannes Film Festival on May 16. Depp is also slated to direct the upcoming movie Modi, based on the play Modigliani, and is touring Europe with his rock band Hollywood Vampires, including Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.


A source told PEOPLE in November that Heard was spending most of her time in Europe, where she was enjoying being a mom and spending time with her daughter. The Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom sequel, in which Heard appears, is scheduled to hit theaters on December 20. Heard celebrated her 37th birthday on April 22.

When the settlement with Depp was announced in December, Heard released a statement saying she felt her life was destroyed by the trial, and she had lost faith in the American legal system. However, she was glad to have finally emancipated herself from the situation and had not made any admissions. There were no restrictions or gags on her voice moving forward.
