It wasn’t just the public who questioned Amber Heard’s credibility during the trial of Johnny Depp …
Two weeks after the verdict was delivered, one of the seven jurors in the trial that pitted Johnny Depp against his ex-wife Amber Heard took some confidences. This anonymous testimony was broadcast on Thursday June 16 on American television, on the program “Good Morning America”. The man explained in particular why the jury had finally ruled in favor of the actor, accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife. It’s been six years now since the two actors got divorced.
During the highly publicized trial, Amber Heard’s particularly demonstrative attitude earned him strong criticism. Even on the part of the jury, her “crocodile tears” did not play in her favor: “It didn’t seem credible. It seemed like she was able to activate her emotions. She was answering a question and she was crying and two seconds later she was freezing. She didn’t seem natural, “explained the juror. According to the latter, Johnny Depp appeared” a little more real in the way he answers questions “.
“The crying, the facial expressions he had and his gaze fixed on the jury … We were all very uncomfortable,” adds the juror, evoking the insistent gaze that Amber Heard gave them in answering questions, as his team would have advised him. To this attitude considered not very credible, were added doubts about the photos of the actress with the swollen face, but also about her sincere intention to donate the divorce money to associations. For the jury, each of the spouses abused the other, but the actress from the film “Aquaman” appeared more as an “attacker”.
