Amber Heard Reveals What Happened to Her Career After Johnny Depp Allegations

Back in 2016, Amber Heard brought allegations of domestic abuse against her ex husband Johnny Depp, and now, she’s writing an op-ed about what happened to her career after those accusations were made public.

“Two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out,” Amber wrote for the Washington Post. “Friends and advisers told me I would never again work as an actress — that I would be blacklisted. A movie I was attached to recast my role. I had just shot a two-year campaign as the face of a global fashion brand, and the company dropped me. Questions arose as to whether I would be able to keep my role of Mera in the movies ‘Justice League’ and ‘Aquaman.’”

Amber continued, “I write this as a woman who had to change my phone number weekly because I was getting death threats. For months, I rarely left my apartment, and when I did, I was pursued by camera drones and photographers on foot, on motorcycles and in cars. Tabloid outlets that posted pictures of me spun them in a negative light. I felt as though I was on trial in the court of public opinion — and my life and livelihood depended on myriad judgments far beyond my control.”

Johnny denied allegations and spoke about how it hurts to be considered a violent man.

Amber and Johnny were married from 2015–2017. Amber‘s movie Aquaman opens in theaters this weekend.

    The abusers get away with it because women do not support victims.

  • Willy Billy

    We don’t support an abuser like Amber Heard, who was arrested for domestic violence against a woman and tried to wipe it off her record.

  • Vanity

    Um FYI when you’re blacklisted.. you dont sign on to be in blockbuster films. get a clue you liar.

  • LetMeTranslate

    Tasya van Ree put out an official statement denying domestic abuse.

    Ree’s statement:

    “In 2009, Amber was wrongfully accused for an incident that was misinterpreted and over-sensationalized by two individuals in a powerful position,” her statement, which was obtained by E! News, began.

    “I recount hints of misogynistic attitudes toward us which alter appeared to be homophobic when they found out we were domestic partners and not just ‘friends.’ Charges were quickly dropped and she was released moments later.”

    It’s unbelievable that so many people could fall for the lies, sleaze and tricks of this man and his massive army of lawyers, PR reps, studios and sycophants who will stop at nothing to demonize his ex-wife and make sure that their cash cow can keep paying them. Wake up, zombies. You are being played by this man, but you don’t see it. He has a long history of violence that has been covered up for a long time.

    Quote from Kate Moss’s 2010 biography from a bouncer at the Viper Room: “I’ve
    heard people describe Johnny as shy and mild-mannered. He is when he’s sober.
    When he’s drunk, he gets a bad, bad temper.”

    It takes A LOT for a BOUNCER on Depp’s payroll (one of an army of paid entourage), to say that he has a bad temper. That is not the kind of thing you say about normal men. That means that he is VIOLENT and NASTY when drunk. Wake up and smell the coffee. It would take the dumb sheeple, played by Depp’s PR army, seeing Amber beat her to a pulp with their own eyes before they believe it’s true. Any even then they will say she set him up.

    Depp smashed his hand through a wall in a fight with Amber, so badly that he had to leave his $200M movie set and fly home for surgery. Sounds normal. I bet that’s the “lying gold-digger’s” fault too, right?

    The same people who believe that there is NO WAY Depp could get drunk, high and violent (despite reports of violence for years, witnesses, photos, judges granting restraining orders) are those that swallow every mainstream media narrative and have no idea that there are forces at work behind the scenes. When you read the Washington Post, or Fox News or NYT, for example, you don’t just swallow the story blindly, you realize that they are owned by powerful people, left wing or right who are spinning you the narrative that they want you to hear. When you hear all these stories from “sources”, you don’t just take them on board, you think about why you are hearing them. Why did we hear a slurry of horrific stories about Heard just after she filed for divorce? Because there are powerful machines at work behind the scenes that want you to believe she is a wicked, non-human, monster caricature. Those forces are paid for by Depp and his studios, and are vicious and ruthless and will stop at nothing. They include the “sources” telling us Depp’s mother hate her, the sick sycophant friend calling her a demon, the bodyguards calling TMZ, the army of PR reps spreading lies about her. Open your eyes and THINK. There are forces at play here that want to save their billion $ cash cow.

    His own former managers say it was an open secret among the Depp staff that he had “violently kicked” Amber. There are text messages from his assistant, Stephen Deuters, authenticated by a tech expert, where Deuters says Depp is devastated by what he did to Heard the previous night and responding to Heard saying that Depp kicked her.

    This is what Johnny Depp did to Amber Heard (Read IO Wright’s article on Refinery 29 called Why I called 911: https://www.refinery29.com/2016/06/113149/domestic-violence-911-call-famous-friend) for more insight.

    Him and his studios then paid an army of lawyers, PR reps, TMZ journalists and sycophantic people on his payroll to absolutely annihilate Amber in the court of Public Opinion, despite the pictures, video, eyewitnesses, history of drug use, self-professed “hellish temper”, and his assistant Stephen Deuters texting Amber that Depp was devastated that he had kicked her the day before (Depp berated him into denying the texts were real, despite a tech expert authenticating them).

    Depp berated Deuters into saying that Heard “doctored” the text messages when she did no such thing. WAKE UP!

    All of this worked. Amber was destroyed in public, forever to be known as a gold-digging scam artist, while Depp has gone on to star in numerous films and make millions. Women have a long long way to go before they will ever be believed and taken seriously and Depp had no problem making sure an entire generation of children believe that when a woman claims she has been abused, she is doing it for a payout.

    Normalizing the violent behavior of this man and glorifying him because you like these movies is disgusting. You are in the gutter. Shame on you.

    Depp headbutted her in the face, dragged her upstairs by her hair and choked her out. She awoke with her pillow covered in blood. This is the Dec 2015 incident, not the 2016 cellphone one. Heard grabbed her gf’s arm in an airport. Her gf, still one of her best friends to this day, says it was completely overblown. See the difference?

  • Nina

    stop lying Amber, you just don’t have the talent! The only good role that she has, was because of Johnny! Her career didn’t exist before getting marrie JD, and now it’s following its course! She is so desperate because her money (that one that was donated to charity *cof *cof) it is over, now she is trying to get back with her ex, the billionare! She will always be a gold digger!

  • MyName

    Where’s the proof?

  • MyName

    The misogynisitic and homophobic part was discounted when the lesbian arresting officer spoke out.

  • slimshady

    “Friends and advisers told me I would never again work as an actress — that I would be blacklisted” -> She didn’t say she was blacklisted, she said that people told her that she would.

  • Lexi

    That’s why she’s still ‘friends’ with Elon Musk.

  • Maria M.

    This talentless gold digger thinks that public will still buy this shit! She refused to be deposed under oath. That said everything we need to know.

  • Business Today

    The show business apologists are sweet to listen to. The reality is that Amber Heard has a long police record of confidence activity, spousal abuse and drug peddling among many other charges that are presently being handled by the courts. Her relationships with any one media figure is only one of many that are being investigated by the authorities. Quotes by other posters on this page claiming retractions from past victims are false and have been fabricated either by them or by previous sources. This woman appeared very professionally on the doorstep of show business claiming to be an actor but is now known to have long been a confidence agent who has worked in several differing industries. I wouldn’t even go near her, in a personal arena, given her known proven background. It’s nice to support a pretty woman in show business, but as the criminal agent Charles Manson has proven, pretty women in show business come at a face value.

    She wanted it made public and did so. People first believed her and it hurt his image. Her lack of credibility was soon discovered. Her own actions hurt her. She’s now attempting damage control. The only way for her to save any kind of face is to admit she fabricated the story for money. He should sue her for defamation of character if she continues this.

    She does this right before Aquaman is about to be released…. I would have not hired her for being a loose cannon for studios.

    Plus she’s not a good actress at all…..like at all.

    As for her relationship with Depp, she KNEW he was a father of 2 kids and with a woman for almost 20 years.

    People seem to forget that about her. Yes he was the one who had everything to lose and should have said no, but what was her excuse for putting herself in that situation?

    The abuse, we’re just not getting the full story. Until they are both under oath I doubt we ever will so I think people should stop talking to her or him about it. Unless she takes it to court, I dont see what the point is.

    Amber, you are crazy AF. Last week you said you weren’t going to talk about Johnny anymore and move on. Never trusted that as you said it before. Now, here you are lying and selling your lies AGAIN. You are blacklisted because you are a dangerous abuser and a liar and everyone knows it. And as an actress, woman and human being YOU SUCK SWAMPWATER!

    She implied it, just like she constantly implies she was abused but never took JD to court. She lies!

  • reindeer

    Did she had a career before beeing with Depp? No, she was in movies like the London Fields flop. She tries to milk her victim story ad nauseam. And now she is after Momoa, who is married and has kids. But for feminists she is an angel. Bad for the feminists. Interesting how real victims tell the world that she is a liar..

    “Amber’s ex-domestic partner, Tasya van Ree, minimized their altercation
    at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, saying it was “misinterpreted and over-sensationalized by two individuals in a powerful position.”
    She’s referring to the cops who arrested Amber for allegedly grabbing and hitting Tasya.

    Officer Beverly Leonard was the actual arresting officer. She proudly posted pics of herself and her partner a few years back. She’s also posted pics of herself at Pride weekend.

    Leonard also supported an organization in Seattle that helps women who were victims of domestic violence.

    A source close to Beverly says the now-retired officer is indignant … saying the arrest had nothing to do with homophobia … she was arrested for breaking the law.

    Although Tasya claims the incident was minor, police documents show there was actual property damage … Tasya’s pendant was broken during
    the scuffle, and the documents also show Tasya was extremely upset with
    Amber for the alleged attack … so claim the responding cops.”

  • suzybel

    She only wishes anyone gives a damn about her career.. Time to let it go girl.

  • reindeer

    She did not wanted to go to court because she has no real evidence nor real witnesses.But there is a lot of evidence that she was and is lying all the time.

  • reindeer

    There is no proof he did it to her,that is why she could not go to court. But there is proof that she did it to him.

  • reindeer

    She was hitting and grabbing Tasya van Ree there in front of other people. what has she done behind closed doors. Tasya acts like a victim, defending her abuser.

  • Jean two

    What a liar! Hush, the f up! You’ve been out, all the time, after your lies! Gets me so angry

  • Jean two

    Lies.

  • Peachy

    She should really keep her mouth shut because she sticks her foot in it every time she speaks. Her people told her not to speak out but she did it anyway and now she’s crying about being blacklisted although she said she gets seven scripts a day on her desk. Right. Said she couldn’t leave her apartment but it wasn’t her’s anyway, it was Depp’s. Also, she said that the LAPD came to the apartment and documented the alleged abuse but then they lied to the media. Wow..did they lie under oath too because they are witnesses in Depp’s case against The Sun. Screenshots are out of his dv papers in The Sun case and they say that two of his witnesses entered the room while she was yelling in the phone to stop hitting her and he was on the opposite side of the apartment. Depp stated he did not know who her make up artist friend was who just happened to be there that night, yet they had already been together for some time. I don’t believe a word of anything she says.

  • Peachy

    Momoa doesn’t have the money or the power for her to go after him and he wouldn’t put up with her BS like the others did.

  • Peachy

    Exactly. The bottom line in all of this is the letter her lawyer sent to his about the divorce and the alleged abuse. It says she was willing to settle “all matters” before it hit the media. He said no to her demands for the three penthouse apartments with him paying all the utilities, attorney fees, expert fees, and alimony for life. Within days she filed the divorce and dv charge. If he had said yes, she would not have filed the dv charge or sold that fake picture to the media.
