Amber Heard says she still loves Johnny Depp, despite the fact that he allegedly raped her. “I feel humiliated,” she says. “I know he promised to humiliate me and he thinks he succeeded… I’m not a ‘good’ victim, I know that. I’m not ‘likable’, people don’t like me. I am not perfect. But I asked the jury to see me as a person. Still, Johnny seems to have succeeded in his goal.”

Journalist Savannah Guthrie wonders if Amber isn’t afraid to speak about the case publicly. According to the court verdict, she lied about the domestic violence, so any statement she makes about Johnny may be yet another slander. “Yes, I took it for granted that I had a right of expression, but that turned out not to be the case,” she says. “I’m afraid he’s going to charge me again, yes. I fear that anything I say or do, however I say or do it, will be a cause for silencing me in such a way. They take my voice away. That was the intent of the lawsuit, to silence me.”
Yet she does not want to remain silent. “My opinion piece was really not about him,” she says, even though Guthrie clearly doesn’t believe her. “It was about lending my voice to a larger cultural discussion that we were having in the world at the time. I definitely didn’t want to let it be about him. I’ve had teams of lawyers proofread every version of that piece so it certainly wouldn’t look like that.”Save 65% on select product(s) with promo code 65WVFPG1 on Amazon.com
She said she didn’t want Johnny to lose work because of her opinion piece. “Of course not. That was not my intention. I didn’t even want it to ever get known that Johnny was abusing me.” She steadfastly denies that she contacted news channel TMZ to tip them about her alleged injuries. “Why would I do that? Why would someone I know do that?”
“I still love him,” she admits. “But now I’m going to focus on raising my daughter. If I ever tell her about this, she’ll know I did the right thing.”
