As Johnny Depp appeared for his libel trial against NGN owing to an article from The Sun, the 57-year-old actor accused Amber Heard of cheating him with several personalities from Hollywood that included Leonardo DiCaprio’s name as well. There, he addressed the Titanic star as “pumpkin-head” while Channing Tatum turned out being potato-head and “Jim Turd Sturgess” for him.
Casting a spell of doubts
Meanwhile, his ex-wife has denied such charges who further voiced the actor’s jealousy in allowing Amber to shoot intimate scenes with a co-star on-screen. Recording her statements, the actress shared her tragic experience of marital life with Depp explaining, “[Depp] would insist every male actor was trying to sleep with me and/or that I had an affair with them, that he’d spoken to people and knew all about it. He would try and catch me out by taking my phone or telling me someone had told him I was having an affair and act as if he had information proving it – when I really hadn’t. He accused me of having affairs with each of my co-stars, movie after movie: Eddie Redmayne, James Franco, Jim Sturgess, Kevin Costner, Liam Hemsworth, BillyBob Thornton, Channing Tatum; even women co-stars like Kelly Garner. He also accused me of having affairs with stars I auditioned with, like Leonardo DiCaprio. He would taunt me about it – especially when he was drunk or high.”
Being obsessively possessive
She went on to elaborate her biggest concern claiming, “He demanded to know about any romantic scene in a film and complained about how people can watch me ‘get f**ked on camera’. He would even get himself copies of the scripts I was looking at, without asking me, to review them for himself.”
With a series of compromises
But that was just the beginning of the story. Amber then revealed how things went much worse in the later phase as her career took off, that it even led her to lose several opportunities within the industry over continuing suspicion. She narrated, “His rules got tighter every year we were together about what nudity or scenes were acceptable, wanting descriptions of every detail, every aspect of scenes and how they were covered, placing increasing restrictions on what I could and couldn’t do. I found myself making concessions and turning down work. My salary went down every year I was with him because of all the work I was missing. Meanwhile, he would insist I went on set with him when I wasn’t working. It was such a hassle to fight so I often went along.”
