She made her acting debut in the 2006 horror movie All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, and since then, she’s appeared in movies including The Ward (2010), Drive Angry (2011), and London Fields (2018). She has also appeared in supporting roles in movies including The Danish Girl (2015), Paranoia (2013), Machete Kills (2013), The Joneses (2009), Never Back Down (2015), Pineapple Express (2008), and The Joneses.

Heard performs the role of Mera in the DC Extended Universe films Aquaman (2018), Justice League (2017), and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (2023). She has also appeared in TV shows like the post-apocalyptic The Stand (2020) and the teen drama Hidden Palms on The CW.

Heard joined the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) as a volunteer in 2016 and was appointed an ACLU Artist Ambassador, a position designated for people who support civil rights and civil liberties. Heard also worked with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights as an ambassador for human rights.

Heard wed actor Johnny Depp in 2015, and the union ended in divorce in 2016. Since then, the two have participated in numerous protracted and high-profile defamation lawsuits and accusations of domestic violence against one another, most notably in the widely reported trial of Depp v. Heard, when she was convicted guilty of abusing Depp.

Amber Heard Early life

Heard was born in Austin, Texas, as the middle of three daughters of construction firm entrepreneur David Clinton Heard (born 1950) and internet researcher Patricia Paige (née Parsons; 1956–2020).The family resided outside of Austin. Heard’s father trained horses in his spare time, and she spent her formative years with him riding horses, going on hunts, and fishing.[8] She also competed in beauty pageants, though she later said that she could no longer “support the objectification” as an adult.

Heard, who was raised Catholic, started identifying as an atheist when she was sixteen, following the death of her best friend in a car accident.The following year, Heard left her Catholic high school to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles because she was no longer at ease in “conservative, God-fearing Texas”. She eventually completed a home study course and received a diploma.

Amber Heard Career

2003–2007: Early roles

Heard’s early acting credits include modest supporting roles in the television programs Jack & Bobby (2004), The Mountain (2004), and The O.C. (2005), as well as cameos in two music videos, Eisley’s “I Wasn’t Prepared” and Kenny Chesney’s “There Goes My Life.”

She made her screen debut in a small role in the sports drama Friday Night Lights (2004), and since then, she has appeared in a number of movies in supporting roles, including Drop Dead Sexy (2005), North Country (2005), Side FX (2005), Price to Pay (2006), Alpha Dog (2006), and Spin (2007). She has also appeared as a guest star on an episode of the police procedural crime drama television series Criminal Minds. Heard played the lead in the unusual slasher movie All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, which had its world premiere at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival but was delayed in its release in the US and Europe owing to distribution issues until 2013 and 2008, respectively.

Heard portrayed the main character’s love interest in Hidden Palms, a teen drama that The CW aired in 2007 to take the place of summer reruns of other teen-targeted shows. After receiving mixed reviews and low ratings at its US premiere in May 2007, the series was canceled by the CW after only eight of its twelve planned episodes had been shown. In the same year, Heard also had appearances in the short film Day 73 with Sarah, the teen drama Remember the Daze, and a Californication episode on Showtime.

2008–2016: Mainstream recognition

Heard became well-known in 2008 thanks to supporting parts in the financially successful martial arts movie Never Back Down and the stoner comedy Pineapple Express, both directed by Judd Apatow. She additionally participated in an ensemble cast in the 2008 film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ book The Informers, however the project was not well received by critics. Heard appeared in The Joneses (2009) the next year alongside David Duchovny and Demi Moore. According to Variety, Heard “more or less steals the show” from Moore.

Heard’s other movies during this time, aside from a brief cameo in the box office success Zombieland (2009), were either independent movies with sparse theatrical distribution, like ExTerminators (2009), The River Why (2010), and And Soon the Darkness (2010), or critically panned horror movies, like The Stepfather (2009) and The Ward (2010).

Drive Angry, a supernatural action thriller in which she starred alongside Nicolas Cage, was Heard’s first movie to be released in 2011. She “does everything that can possibly be done” with her character, a waitress who becomes involved in an undead man’s effort to save his daughter from a cult, according to film reviewer Roger Ebert, even though the movie garnered mostly negative reviews and did poorly commercially. Heard also made an early 2011 appearance on the British television show Top Gear as a celebrity driving a cost-effective vehicle, finishing 33rd out of 41 on their Cee’d ranking. The Playboy Club on NBC, a crime drama about the original Playboy Club in 1960s Chicago, was the next project for Heard.

The show was terminated after only three episodes had aired due to unfavorable reviews and ratings, as well as objections from feminists and conservative organizations. In the Hunter S. Thompson adaption The Rum Diary (2011), Heard portrayed the main character’s love interest opposite Johnny Depp. The movie garnered poor reviews and was a financial flop, making $30 million on a $45 million budget[31].Heard’s role was allegedly underdeveloped in Heard participated in a 2011 ad campaign for the clothing company Guess on the runway.

Next, Heard starred in the critically and financially unsuccessful thriller Paranoia (2013), exploitation movie Machete Kills (2013), and parody movie Syrup (2013). All the Boys Love Mandy Lane had a limited US release throughout the year. Heard’s portrayal was praised as her “most definitive to date” by the Los Angeles Times and “psychologically interesting” by The Washington Post, despite the film’s generally mediocre to unfavorable reviews. Heard made a cameo appearance in the critically acclaimed action movie 3 Days to Kill in 2014.

Heard was Channing Tatum’s love interest in the comedy-drama Magic Mike XXL in 2015, and the part was one of her more notable supporting roles. The movie enjoyed significant box office success, much like its predecessor. Heard also starred alongside James Franco and Ed Harris in the independent criminal thriller The Adderall Diaries (2015), and played a minor supporting role in Tom Hooper’s period drama The Danish Girl (2015). Heard, according to IndieWire, “displays much potential and has succeeded in a bid to be taken more seriously” despite being “miscast” in The Adderrall Diaries.

Her fourth performance in 2015 was in the Starz television movie One More Time, which starred Christopher Walken. She learnt to play the piano and guitar as well as sing in preparation for her role as a struggling singer-songwriter. The Film Stage and The Los Angeles Times both praised Heard for her “admirable job” and “superb” performance, respectively. In a November 2015 episode of the American car reality series Overhaulin’, the actress additionally made an appearance. Her Mustang was given a makeover. Additionally, at Depp’s request, the cast played a practical joke on Heard.

Heard portrayed the female lead in the Martin Amis adaption London Fields, which was about a clairvoyant femme fatale who foresees her own murder. The 2015 Toronto International Film Festival hosted its world premiere. The movie was pulled from theaters shortly after the screening as a result of disputes between the filmmaker and producers and legal action.[a] For allegedly breaking performance and promotional obligations, Heard was sued for $10 million. In a countersuit, the actress claimed that the producers had broken a nudity clause in her contract. A settlement was made in September 2018, and the movie was eventually released.

Heard subsequently said that it was “one of the most difficult movies to film and it has proven to be difficult even now”[59] as it received extremely poor reviews. I’m not confident that I performed the character justice. According to Jane Mulkerrins of The Daily Telegraph, Heard gave “a decent enough turn as the enigmatic [Nicola Six]” but it was still insufficient to save the adaptation, and Peter Sobczynski of claimed that she “just does not project the kind of mystery and allure” that the character demands. Heard’s work in the movie earned her a nomination for the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress in 2019.

2017–present: DC Extended Universe and other projects

Heard joined the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) cast as Mera, a princess of an Atlantean realm, in the superhero movie Justice League in 2017. Heard also had an appearance as a member of the ensemble cast in Lake Bell’s indie comedy I Do… Until I Don’t. In the following year’s Aquaman, which also starred Jason Momoa and gave Heard her first significant role in a studio movie, she reprised the part. She mentioned Mera’s quality of being “a strong, independent, self-possessed superhero in her own right” as one of the factors contributing to her interest to the role, who prefers to be known by her own name rather than Aquawoman.

Mixed reviews were given to Aquaman. It made over $1 billion in sales, making it a commercial success.[68] Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune and Geoffrey Macnab of The Independent, respectively, wrote that Heard “lends a blasé air of early ’50s B-movie cheese” and that she “camps it up entertainingly” as Mera. Heard was named the L’Oréal Paris cosmetics company’s worldwide ambassador the same year.

Heard played minor parts in the independent dramas Gully and Her Smell in 2019. The Stand, a miniseries based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, was her lone project that was made and published in 2020. She portrayed Nadine Cross, a teacher who was one of the few people to survive a devastating virus. The first episode aired in December 2020 on CBS All Access, and the series finale followed in February 2021. Heard returned to the role of Mera in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, a director’s edit of the blockbuster movie from 2017, in which she had also shot additional scenes.

Heard will play the lead role in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom in 2023. Following her ex-husband Depp’s defeat in his UK libel action and his replacement in the Fantastic Beasts movies in 2020, an internet petition to have Heard removed from the movie was started. The petition “charges Heard with lying about her allegations against Depp and charges Heard with being a ‘known and proven domestic abuser’.” The film’s co-producer, Peter Safran, announced that Heard would feature in the sequel after Heard called the campaign “paid rumors and paid campaigns on social media”. The petition had amassed 2 million signatures by the time the Depp v. Heard trial in the US began in 2022.

In her evidence, Heard said that although “they didn’t want to include me in the film” and only “shot a very pared-down version” of her part, she “fought really hard to stay in the movie.” According to DC Films President Walter Hamada, who testified on behalf of Depp, they had thought about recasting Mera, but it was because of issues with Heard’s compatibility with Momoa rather than the allegations of abuse. Furthermore, according to Hamada, the role’s diminished significance in the sequel was due to the movie’s original intention to center on the bond between Momoa’s and Patrick Wilson’s characters.

Heard’s first acting performance following the trial was in Conor Allyn’s movie In the Fire. The Taormina Film Fest hosted the movie’s world premiere in June 2023.

Amber Heard Charity and activism

Heard collaborated with Amnesty International on a bilingual campaign in 2012 to increase understanding of American immigration policy at the border with Mexico.

Heard promised in August 2016 to give the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) her $7 million divorce settlement with Johnny Depp. Even though Depp had not yet finished paying her the $7 million, in November of that same year, she released a statement disputing claims from TMZ that she had not yet made the donations as she had promised.

By October 2018, Depp had paid Heard the entire $7 million divorce settlement. Heard had already been acknowledged as a donor by CHLA by being formally listed on their “Honor Roll of Donors” list for the fiscal year 2017. She was also listed among their donations for the fiscal year 2018 in the year after, in 2019.

The Daily Mail published a claim made by Depp’s attorneys in January 2021 that Heard had not finished her donations. Heard expects to “eventually fulfill her pledge” in full, but has “been delayed in that goal because Mr. Depp filed a lawsuit against her, and as a result, she has been forced to spend millions of dollars,” according to Heard’s attorney in reaction to this assertion.

Media publications subsequently covered Heard’s earlier statements. Heard claimed to have “donated” $7 million to the ACLU and CHLA during her appearance on the Dutch talk show RTL Late Night in October 2018. Heard claimed to have “donated” the “entire amount” of her divorce settlement to charity in her testimony in the Depp v. News Group Newspapers Ltd litigation in the UK in February 2020.

The corporate designee of CHLA testified that as of 2021, Heard had paid them $250,000 during the Depp v. Heard trial in 2022. The ACLU’s chief operating officer stated in testimony from December 2021 that the organization anticipated the pledged funds to be received over a 10-year period and that Heard had not made any contributions since 2018. This testimony was previously cited in the trial. A total of $1.3 million had been given to the ACLU up to that point between 2016 and 2018, of which $350,000 came directly from Heard, $500,000 from a donor advised fund thought to belong to Elon Musk, $350,000 from another donor advised fund, and $100,000 from Depp as part of the settlement.

The ACLU was informed by Heard in 2019 that she was “having financial problems and could not fulfill the remainder of the pledge.” Heard claimed in court that the legal bills she incurred to fight the case totaled more than $6 million. She further stated that the $3.5 million she had pledged to donate was not affected by Musk’s donation on her behalf and that she intends to resume her donations as soon as she is able.

Heard was filmed in November 2016 for the #GirlGaze Project’s public service announcement (PSA) about domestic violence. She discussed the value of women supporting one another in the PSA, as well as the fact that women experiencing violence against women (VAW) are not alone and should “speak up.” She also emphasized the significance of accepting accountability for how VAW is handled and discussed “in the media and in our culture” in order to encourage survivors to speak up and advocate for themselves. Similar feelings were expressed in a letter she wrote to “[her] silent sisters everywhere” and was printed in Porter magazine’s December 2016 issue.

She stated in the letter, among other things, that “No matter how terrible or terrifying surviving trauma may be, unfortunately it can pale in comparison to what follows” and that “It isn’t easy to raise your voice, to stand up for yourself and your truth and to do it ‘alone’.” She also told “any woman who is suffering in silence” that “you are not alone” and “You may not see us, but we are there. Your sisters are all over, and you have our support.

Heard brought up the underrepresentation of LGBTQ characters in the Hollywood film business (henceforth referred to as Hollywood) in an interview she gave for The Economist’s Pride and Prejudice event in March 2017 when she described her stance as an openly and activist “sexually fluid” woman. Heard also discussed the significance of more gay males coming out in Hollywood, saying that this would significantly increase the industry’s LGBTQ inclusivity. Heard created a little video for The Economist in August of the same year in which she discussed the underrepresentation of women in the business and the gender wage gap in Hollywood.

Heard accompanied the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) in April 2018 as a Goodwill Ambassador on a multi-specialty medical mission to the Al-Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan. She met Weam, a 12-year-old girl with thalassemia who required costly medications and blood transfusions, when she was there. She subsequently collaborated with SAMS to assist raise funding for Weam and 12 other thalassemia-affected children in the camp, in addition to raising awareness of SAMS’ charitable medical work in Jordan.

Heard agreed to the ACLU’s invitation to join the organization as an ACLU Artist Ambassador that same year, supporting the organization’s advocacy for gender equality. She also agreed to collaborate with the ACLU on an opinion piece to raise awareness of the problems of sexual assault and domestic abuse. This collaboration produced the opinion piece that was initially published in her name by The Washington Post on December 18, 2018, and was then republished by ACLU on December 27, 2018. Depp sued her in late February or early March 2019 claiming that her op-ed had defamed him.

Heard spoke at the 9th Annual Social Good Summit hosted by the UN in September 2018. She discussed her history of activism and volunteer work during her speech, ranging from her early school years to her more recent work with SAMS. She emphasized the importance of people and human relationships in all aspects of life and spoke passionately on the importance of justice and fairness as they are reflected in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Heard delivered a speech for the HagueTalks event ‘Imagine the World We Want’ in October 2018 in advance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights’ 70th anniversary. Heard visited numerous Smile Train initiatives in Mexico later that year during a week in November. She visited many youngsters with cleft lips and palate who were receiving medical care from Smile Train. She also spoke with the children’s families and the doctors who were delivering the care.

Heard traveled to Lebanon in February 2019 with SAMS on a medical mission with the goal of providing care to poor Syrian refugee women. She visited a number of slum areas in the Bekaa Valley while on the mission, including Al-Omaria. Along with this, she collaborated with SAMS to generate money for the establishment of psychosocial programs, expanded access to educational opportunities, and vocational training for the majority of bereaved women and orphaned children living in these communities.

Heard participated in the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights’ Stand Up for Human Rights campaign as a Human Rights Champion. She spoke in favor of the SHIELD Act on Capitol Hill in May 2019, sharing her story of having her personal nude images stolen and posted online without her permission during the 2014 celebrity nude photo leak.

Heard submitted an opinion piece for The New York Times in November 2019 disputing the idea that “revenge porn is the wrong name” because “the perpetrator disclosed the images” even though “the victim did not consent to the disclosure.” Heard continued, “Congress must approve legislation that protects intimate privacy since the patchwork of state laws fall short in this regard.

Heard received recognition for “their activism and commitment to disenfranchised youth” at the 2019 Emery Awards, hosted by the Hetrick-Martin Institute, in the same month as Nico Tortorella and DC Comics.

Heard engaged in the VoteRiders #IDCheck Challenge on social media ahead of the 2020 US presidential election and starred in an election ad for Planned Parenthood created by artist Marilyn Minter.

Amber Heard Personal life

Heard first came out in the media in 2010, but has since said, “I don’t define myself one way or the other – I’ve had happy relationships with males and now a woman. I love the person I adore because that’s what matters.

From 2008 through 2012, Heard was dating photographer Tasya van Ree. During the partnership, Heard legally changed her last name to van Ree before returning to her birth name in 2014. After reportedly striking van Ree, Heard was detained for misdemeanor domestic abuse in 2009 at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in the state of Washington.

Heard appeared in King County District Court in Seattle the following day but was not prosecuted. In 2016, as Heard was going through the divorce process from actor Johnny Depp, the arrest became public. Then, Heard’s publicist released a statement in which van Ree claimed that Heard had been falsely accused and that the incident had been “misinterpreted and over-sensationalized.” She also recalled “hints of misogynistic attitudes toward us which later appeared to be homophobic when they found out we were domestic partners and not just ‘friends,'” and said that she and Heard “shared 5 wonderful years together and remain close to this day.”

Lesbian herself, the female police officer who made the arrest afterwards wrote on Facebook, “I am totally not homophobic or misogynistic! The reason for the arrest was an assault that I saw happen.

A victim of the 2014 celebrity nude photo leak, Heard later spoke out and spoke about such invasions of privacy after “more than 50 of [her] personal photos were stolen and released to the public.”

Heard dated tech entrepreneur and Tesla CEO and shareholder Elon Musk for a year, ending in early 2018, after her divorce from Johnny Depp. The actress and director Bianca Butti and she later dated each other from January 2020 to December 2021.

Heard gave birth to a daughter through surrogacy in April 2021. Heard will be residing in Madrid, Spain, as of June 2023.

Amber Heard Relationship with Johnny Depp

Heard first got to know Johnny Depp in 2009 when she was placed opposite him in the movie The Rum Diary. Reports state that the pair started dating in 2012 and were legally wed in February 2015.

Amber Heard Australian customs incident

When Heard and Depp travelled into Queensland in April 2015, when Depp was filming a movie, they failed to declare the two canines they were bringing with them through customs, violating Australia’s biosecurity laws. The canines were flown out of the country in May 2015, just before a deadline for euthanasia. Only Heard was charged for this law-breaking later in July of the same year.

By the end of 2015, the case had been postponed four times, and Heard had told her attorneys to enter not-guilty pleas, saying she was “looking forward” to defending herself against the allegations. Heard admitted to faking quarantine records in the court proceedings in April 2016, blaming her lack of sleep for her error. She was given a $1,000 (US$752) one-month good behavior bond for providing a fake document, even though criminal charges were dropped; Heard and Depp produced a video in which they apologized for their actions and exhorted people to follow biosecurity regulations.

Amber Heard Divorce

In May 2016, Heard filed for divorce from Depp and won a temporary restraining order against him. She also said in a statement that Depp had been emotionally and physically abusive to her throughout their entire relationship. When I questioned Johnny’s authority or disagreed with him, he would attack me in an angry, hostile, humiliating, or frightening manner, and I would suffer significant emotional, verbal, and physical abuse as a result.

In response, Depp’s legal team stated that “Amber is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse” and that “He is unable to attend the hearing on this matter and has not heard Amber’s specific allegations against him.” He will agree to a mutual stay-away order and a personal behavior order, but he has every intention of avoiding Amber.

In August 2016, a decision on the settlement’s size was made, and Heard promised to split the proceeds equally between the ACLU and CHLA. They jointly released a statement claiming that their relationship was “intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love.” Heard later withdrew her plea for a continuing restraining order. Neither side has leveled unfounded charges in an effort to gain advantage. No attempt was ever made to do someone physical or mental harm.

The final conditions of the settlement were agreed upon in January 2017, and Depp was expected to surrender Heard custody of their two dogs, a horse, and two cars in addition to paying Heard $7 million in full by February 2018. There was no spousal support to be paid by either party, and Depp was to keep all of his real estate assets and 42 automobiles. Heard testified in 2022 that had she asked it, she would have been entitled to half of Depp’s $65 million in lifetime earnings because they didn’t have a pre-nuptial agreement.

Amber Heard Depp v News Group Newspapers Ltd

Depp filed a libel case in the UK in June 2018 against News Group Newspapers (NGN), the publisher of The Sun, after the publication referred to him as a “wife beater” in an article from April 2018. Heard was a crucial NGN witness in the well reported trial in July 2020. The presiding judge determined in November 2020 that Depp had lost his case and that “the great majority of Mr. Depp’s alleged assaults of Ms. Heard [12 out of the 14] have been proved to the civil standard.” The judge dismissed Depp’s contention that the claims were a hoax and agreed that Heard’s activism and career had been harmed by the accusations made against Depp. In March 2021, Depp’s request to have the judgment reversed was denied.

Amber Heard Depp v. Heard

Heard’s op-ed for The Washington Post from December 2018 led to Depp suing Heard for defamation in February 2019. Depp claimed in the lawsuit that the opinion piece contained three false assertions, the first of which was the headline:

“Amber Heard: I came out against sexual assault and was ostracized by our culture. That needs to alter.

Then, two years ago, I rose to prominence as a spokesperson for domestic violence, and I experienced the full power of our culture’s hostility toward women who speak up.

“I had the unique opportunity to witness in real time how institutions defend men who are accused of abusing women,”

Additionally, Depp claimed that Heard was the one who had abused him and that her claims against him were untrue.

Heard counterclaimed against Depp in August 2020, claiming that he orchestrated “a harassment campaign via Twitter and [by] orchestrating online petitions to get her fired from Aquaman and L’Oréal.”[189][190] Heard’s counterclaim ultimately proceeded to trial over three claims that Depp had slandered her through comments made by his then-attorney, Adam Waldman, which were printed in the Daily Mail in April 2020. Waldman said:

In order to spread a “sexual violence hoax” against Depp, “Heard and her friends in the media used fake sexual violence allegations as both sword and shield.”

…in one incident at a penthouse, “Amber and her friends spilled a little wine and roughed the place up, got their stories straight under the direction of a lawyer and publicist, and then placed a second call to 911” as “an ambush, a hoax” against Depp….there had been a “abuse hoax” by Heard against Depp.

Between April 11 and June 1, 2022, Fairfax County, Virginia, hosted the Depp-Heard trial. The jury determined that all three of Heard’s op-ed statements were false, defamed Depp, and were written with genuine malice. As a result, the jury awarded Depp $5 million in punitive damages and $10 million in compensatory damages against Heard. Due to a cap established by Virginia state law, the punitive damages were decreased to $350,000.

The jury determined that Waldman’s second statement to the Daily Mail was false, defamatory, and made with actual malice, but that his first and third remarks to the newspaper had not been established to be false. Heard received $2 million in compensatory damages and no punitive damages from Depp as a result.

Online public opinion during the trial was generally against Heard because she was ridiculed and called “crazy” and because her evidence, which was widely derided, was believed to be fake.[194] Heard claimed that the internet criticism of her testimony was “agonizing” and that she was “harassed, humiliated, and threatened every single day.”

Heard claimed following the trial that she did not “blame” the jury for the decision, suggesting that they may have favored Depp due to his notoriety rather than the facts because he was a “fantastic actor” and “people feel they know him.” Heard questioned how the jury could have believed her by the time she took the stand when they had already listened to “to three-and-a-half weeks of testimony about how I was a non-credible person” in response to the interviewer’s hypothesis that they had considered the evidence and had not believed her testimony.

Heard’s attorney, Elaine Bredehoft, said interviewers the day after the judgement was announced that Heard will appeal the decision because she could not afford to pay the damages owing to Depp. One of Heard’s insurance companies, New York Marine, filed a federal court lawsuit against her a month later in an effort to avoid having to pay up to $1 million for her legal defense costs in the Virginia case. New York Marine claimed that because the “jury’s factual findings establish that Heard’s liability is caused by the willful act(s) of Heard,” it is “not liable” for the loss.

Depp and Heard settled their legal dispute in December 2022 after both of them had appealed the verdict. Heard had publicly stated that she “simply cannot go through” a retrial, even if her appeal is successful, and that the settlement was “not an act of concession.” In the meantime, Depp’s attorneys claimed that the “jury’s unanimous decision and the resulting judgement in Mr. Depp’s favor against Ms. Heard remain fully in place,” adding that the settlement would see Heard’s insurer pay Depp $1 million, which “Depp is pledging and will donate to charities.”
