“Until the day of my death (I) I will stand by all the words of my testimony,” Heard said in an interview about the defamation suit of the former.

The six-week trial saw the couple’s lawyers scrutinize and consider the darkest moments of their relationship.

Directing the interview to the closing arguments, Savannah touched a moment when Depp’s lawyer called Heard’s testimony a “lifelong practice” and accused him of representing the judge.

“You say the lawyer of the man who convinced the world that he had a scissors?” Heard commented on the 1990 film “Edward Scissorhands” in which Depp starred. “I’ve been listening to weeks of testimonies – emphasizing that or even directly saying, you know, I’m a bad character. So I’m confused about whether I can be both. ”

Heard and Savannah also discussed the First Amendment, a player right cried on Instagram saying he felt lost because of the case.

“Here is something about the First Amendment: The First Amendment protects the free speech. It does not protect against deception, and that was the case in the case, ”said Savannah, emphasizing that the truth was at the root of the case and that the judge had decided.

“That is all I have said. And I have spoken it with great force, ”Heard replied. “And I paid the price.”
