在周五, Heard 与 Savannah Guthrie 坐下来进行了长达一小时的采访 “日期线。” 在电视采访中, the actress addressed her plans now that her defamation fight with her ex-husband Johnny Depp has concluded.
“I get to be a mom, I get to be a mom full time,” she told Guthrie.
Heard announced on Instagram in July 2021 that she had secretly welcomed baby girl Oonagh Paige Heard via a surrogate, saying she’ll be both “the mom and the dad.”
Guthrie asked the “海王” 演员 if she planned on eventually telling her daughter about the trial with Depp.
“我认为, 无论, it will mean something. I did the right thing,” 她说. “I did everything I could to stand up for myself and the truth. I look forward to living my life, and I have a long one, 我希望, in front of me, and I will continue to walk through this with my chin up.”
Heard made sure to note during the interview that she is not “vindictive” following her loss in the defamation trial against the “加勒比海盗” 星.
“One thing I’m not is vindicative. There’s no part of me that sees … this is a lousy way to get vengeance,” she said during the interview.
When Guthrie and Heard dived into the six-week trial, Heard admitted she does not think it was a fair trial.
“Majority of the trial was played outside of the courtroom,” Heard said, referencing the viral nature of the proceedings. Heard mentioned that the jury was instructed not to look on social media for information about the case. To Heard, 那是 “impossible” to avoid.
“It would have been impossible to avoid this,” 她说.
The actress also called herself “not a good” victim and noted she may not be “likable” to many people.
“I asked the jury to just see me as human,” Heard said. She mentioned that Depp was trying to “ruin” 她的, 加, “I feel as though he has.”
Heard shared during the interview that she fears the trial’s outcome could instill “恐惧” 在 others experiencing domestic violence and worries they will not come forward.
“I hope this hasn’t had the chilling effect that I worry it may have on other people,” 她说. Heard shared that she is “still here” as she sat across from Guthrie and said, “Maybe that serves to balance out some of the very real fear others may have about coming forward.”
After a shocking six-week trial that exposed the pair’s toxic marriage, a jury found that Heard had defamed Depp by penning a Washington Post op-ed referring to herself as a domestic abuse victim.
