Amber Heard’s sit-down interview is now streaming on NBC’s Dateline – three weeks after the Aquaman actress lost her bombastic libel case against ex-husband Johnny Depp.
The full interview with Savannah Guthrie aired after several teasers were dropped throughout the week.
Despite a jury finding earlier this month that Heard, 36, smeared the abuse allegations against her Pirates of the Caribbean ex, she insisted she stood by “every word” of her testimony.
In fact, Heard doubled down on allegations that Depp had abused her during their “ugly” marriage – and bluntly accused him of lying after repeatedly denying her claims on the witness stand during the six-week trial.
At one point in the interview, Guthrie noted that Depp testified that he never hit Heard during their relationship and that “no woman came forward and said he physically hit her.”
Heard responded by suggesting that Depp’s other ex-boyfriends may have been too scared to publicly accuse him of alleged abuse.
“Look what happened to me when I came forward. Would you?” she said.
She went on to explain her motivation for speaking out publicly after being investigated by Guthrie.
“One thing I can tell you, one thing I’m not: vindictive. There’s no part of me that sees anything… That would be a really lousy way to take revenge,” Heard said.
“You know, Savannah, as silly as it is to say that out loud… my goal, the only thing I can hope for at this point, is for people to see me as a person.”
Heard also admitted that she “absolutely” still loves Depp and has “no bad feelings” about him.
When asked if there was one thing she wished the jury could have seen during the trial, Heard said there are documents from her doctor that represent “years, years of real-time explanations of what was going on.” .
“There’s a binder full of year-long notes from 2011 from the beginning of my relationship that were made by my doctor that I reported the abuse to,” Heard said at one point in the interview.
