Winona Ryder Defends Her Ex Johnny Depp, Says Amber Heard's Accusations Are 'Impossible to Believe'

Winona Ryder has filed a declaration in Johnny Depp‘s defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

The 48-year-old actress, who was once engaged to Johnny and starred alongside him in Edward Scissorhands, defend him against the domestic abuse allegations made by Amber.

“I am aware of the violence allegations that have been made publicly for the last few years by Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard,” she said in her declaration. “I knew Johnny very well years ago. We were together as a couple for four years, and I counted him as my best friend, and as close to me as family. I count our relationship as one of the more significant relationships of my life. I understand that it is very important that I speak from my own experience.”

“I obviously was not there during his marriage to Amber, but, from my experience, which was so wildly different, I was absolutely shocked, confused and upset when I heard the accusations against him,” Winona continued (via The Blast). “The idea that he is an incredibly violent person is the farthest thing from the Johnny I knew and loved. I cannot wrap my head around these accusations.”

Winona added, “He was never, never violent towards me. He was never, never abusive at all towards me. He has never been violent or abusive towards anybody I have seen. I truly and honestly only know him as a really good man- an incredibly loving, extremely caring guy who was so very protective of me and the people that he loves, and I felt so very, very safe with him.”

“I do not want to call anyone a liar but from my experience of Johnny, it is impossible to believe that such horrific allegations are true. I find it extremely upsetting knowing him as I do,” Winona concluded.

This isn’t the first time that Winona has spoken out in support of Johnny.
