Amber Heard smiles in 2016 deposition when asked about audio of her admitting to punching Johnny Depp

Amber Heard was caught on camera smiling and rolling her eyes in a new statement from 2016 where she was asked about beating up Johnny Depp.

Jurors in the former couple’s multimillion-dollar defamation trial in Fairfax, Virginia, were shown a clip of Ms. Heard’s statement from August 13, 2016 on Tuesday, in which she is seen listening to a audio conversation between her and Mr. Depp.

In the audio, the couple talk about an alleged fight in which Depp repeatedly accuses his wife of hitting him.

Ms Heard is heard denying hitting him, saying that Mr Depp pushed the bathroom door on her toes, so she pushed the door back and hit him in the head. She repeatedly says “sorry” to her husband.

As Mrs. Heard listens to the audio during her deposition, she eats a snack, chews, looks around the room, and shakes her head.

At one point, she is seen smiling and rolling her eyes. She is also talking to someone in the room and voices can be heard in the background.

During an intense cross-examination Tuesday, Depp’s attorney, Camille Vasquez, questioned Heard about the videotaped statement, asking if she thinks there is “something funny” about her husband’s alleged abuse.

Ms Heard insisted she was reacting to the team of lawyers who were “laughing and snickering” in the courtroom at the time.

“You’re smiling while that audio recording is playing on that statement, aren’t you?” Ms. Vasquez asked.

Ms. Heard responded: “I’m not smiling because of the audio. I am smiling at what is happening around me.

“I was sitting across from an entire table of attorneys who were laughing and rolling their eyes as I spoke.”

Depp’s lawyer asked the Aquaman actress if she found the abuse “funny.”

“Is there anything funny about kicking a door in your husband’s head?” she asked.

“No, I was just rolling my eyes and commenting on what I was experiencing at the time telling the story,” Ms. Heard testified.

Mrs. Vasquez continued to press her, “Is there anything funny about punching your husband in the jaw?”

Ms. Heard responded by saying “that’s not what I was smiling about and no, I don’t think that’s funny.”

During cross-examination, Ms. Heard was also asked about the same audio that she had played in 2016.

She insisted that she only hit Mr. Depp to defend herself against his abuse.

“I tried to defend myself when I could, but it was after years of not defending myself,” he testified.

Depp sues his ex-wife for defamation over a 2018 op-ed she wrote washington post where she described herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”

The pirates of the Caribbean The actor is not named in the article, which is titled “I have spoken out against sexual violence and faced the wrath of our culture. That has to change.”

However, Depp claims that it falsely implies that he is a domestic abuser, something he adamantly denies, and has left him struggling to land roles in Hollywood. He is suing for $50 million.

Ms Heard is countersuing for $100 million, accusing Mr Depp of orchestrating a “smear campaign” against her and describing his lawsuit as a continuation of “abuse and harassment”.
