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.
