I have not been able to sleep for five days. I stayed up listening to the Trial of Amber Heard V Johnny Depp's 'Defamation lawsuit' in Virginia. It is deeply disturbing. Whilst I find Amber careless, lacking empathy and Johnny charming in a shy introverted awkward way, it is difficult to know who these famous actors truly are. They are both professional and their behaviour feels deliberate.
Violence is not to be condoned in this Woke Cromwellian world, abuse towards women is unacceptable. However, there is something very unattractive and arrogant about Amber as she crunches crisps/nuts during a deposition leaving the feeling she is sly. Amber looks sarcastic and nasty as she says 'No" to a question. Although pretty and serene sitting in the courtroom I could never trust her. I listened to her softly spoken passive-aggressive. voice and found it patronising. Personally, I could not stand being lectured and bullied, I would react and explode as Johnny eventually did. Amber can gaslight in a very professional way. I feel she is a dominatrix. In the courtrooms, she is manicured and dressed in austere clothes. Buttoned up and demure, perfectly coiffured and dressed to kill. Amber appears to copy Johnny's style. Nobody is "one dimensional" and she oozes fake misery at the moment. Elon Musk and James Franco both fell for her professed intellectual abilities enjoying Ayn Rand. Depp loved her reading too. I probably read as much as Miss Heard. A book may be in the lap but not necessarily read. At the same time, Amber gabbles words without a script.
Johnny has some wonderful responses. "You cannot always be right, try being wrong sometimes, you might learn something!"
I was never a particular fan of Johnny Depp's, pirates don't do it for me. However, I do like quiet soulful men in the corner. I do not like alcoholics or drug addicts, I never trust them. I love Elon Musk who should be ruling the World, and James Franco. (I once paid for an Art show party in Venice for James Franco). They are all human and I am sure they are no saints. Amber prefers the company of women to men. I suspect she always has.
Areas of dispute
1. Shitting deliberately on the bed and blaming the dogs
2. Amber had to undo Johnny's shoes when he got home and lost her temper when he did it.
3. Stubbing a cigarette out on his face
5. Nagging him
6. having him sleep at the same time as she wants
7. calling Johnny an old fat man
8. Chopping off his finger
9. James Franco in the lift with Amber as she was filing for divorce.
As we go into the next week. I am not sure there will be winners. Certainly Hollywood will be nervous to use Johnny Depp again unless he can prove wholeheartedly he was a 'battered husband"He will have to be squeaky clean from now onwards that is not the role of Jack Sparrow. Amber will also have a problem as nobody likes to be associated with scandal. Her girlfriend Eve Barlow often arrived with her and was expelled from the court as she was texting, neither seem honourable. The lies don't do Amber any good, there are many pretty faces in the world. Finally, why would anyone want their very dirty laundry shown to the world? At least there will be a new star for Fatal Attraction 2. Amber Heard will be spectacular. I keep waiting for them to run across the room, kiss and makeup.
More importantly what is this sordid tale hiding?
