Amber Heard sparks debate over movie quotes in testimony

Amber Heard sparks debate over movie quotes in testimony

Johnny Depp supporters accuse Amber Heard of dramatizing her testimony in the former couple’s ongoing libel trial by borrowing lines from famous films.

However, others online insist that comparisons are at hand.

Alana Mastrangelo, Breitbart News reporter tweeted Thursday a side-by-side video of Heard’s quotes on the stand this week and a scene from the 1999 movie “The Talented Mr. Ripley.”

She wrote: “Amber Heard: ‘When I was with Johnny I felt like the most beautiful person in the world – so he disappeared.'”

Mastrangelo then fired a “Mr. Ripley “:” The thing with Dickie, it’s like the sun is shining on you and it’s glorious – then it forgets about you and it’s freezing cold.

One person commented in response to the comparison, “That seems over the top…but she’s definitely putting on a show.”

Another argued, “It wasn’t exactly the same words…but that’s what you do when you make the character your own.”

A separate user agreed with the first, writing: “Are these two completely different quotes?”

Then another added: ‘You realize literally anyone who’s been in a relationship like his has probably described their partner the same, right?

Meanwhile, podcaster NotSkinnyButNotFat pointed out on Instagram that Jennifer Garner once used a similar quote when talking about her ex-husband Ben Affleck.

The ’13 Going on 30′ star told Vanity Fair in 2016 of the father of her children, “I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun shines somewhere else, it’s cold, and it can cast quite a shadow.

However, Mastrangelo was convinced that Heard, 36, had taken inspiration from several films, also noting that the actress’ mention of a “dirty carpet” after Depp, 58, allegedly punched her, ‘recalls scenes from Netflix’s ‘Maid’.

Heard didn’t actually quote “The Talented Mr. Ripley” in his testimony, despite rumors on social media.

She also underlined Heard’s claim that Depp once told him “I’d rather cut my hand than put it on you” sounds like a line from the 1945 drama “Mildred Pierce,” in which the star says, “J would have rather cut from my hand.

Representatives for Heard declined to comment on the debate over the movie quotes.

However, Depp’s legal team seems to believe the “Aquaman” star is performing some sort of standing act.

They told Page Six in a statement on Thursday: “As Mr. Depp’s attorney correctly predicted in his opening statements last month, Ms. Heard did indeed deliver ‘the performance of a lifetime’ during his direct questioning. .”

Heard’s rep responded shortly after, saying in part: “As evidenced by the statement just released, Mr. Depp’s defamation claim is collapsing so quickly that his lawyer is going from prosecutor to persecutor. “

Depp is suing Heard for defamation over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she wrote that she was sexually abused.

Although the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star was not named in the article, it was written after Heard filed a restraining order against her ex-husband in 2016 for alleged abuse.

The former couple started dating in 2012 and were married from 2015 to 2017.

Depp is seeking $50 million in damages. Heard filed a countersuit for $100 million.
