Amber Heard Called James Franco a 'Rapist,' According to Johnny Depp

Amber Heard allegedly called James Franco a “rapist,” her ex husband Johnny Depp apparently said in court today while being questioned by lawyers.

During his libel case against a UK tabloid, he was asked about the period of time where Amber agreed to star in 2015′s The Adderall Diaries alongside James Franco. Johnny said he was “shocked” when she signed on to make the film and admitted it made him feel “jealous.”

“It shocked me she was suddenly so friendly and happy with him,” Johnny said on the stand today (via the Evening Standard). “She told me many things that were very very negative about Mr Franco, that he had tried to kiss her and made sexual advances towards her on the previous film they had made together. She said he was a creep and a rapist. She said he was quite aggressive in his advances towards her.”

The lawyer then clarified Johnny‘s use of the word “rapist,” “You have made an extremely important statement just now.”

Johnny replied, “It’s just a word that came out for the actions of Mr Franco, as described to me by Ms Heard, which were sexual advances, him leaning over and saying I’m going to kiss you. She had to sort of run from the advances at one point, that he was kind of non-stop, she felt he was creepy and rapey so I said a rapist.”
