Benicio Del Toro Says Amber Heard Sounds 'Manipulative'

Oscar-winning actor Benicio Del Toro is coming to the defense of his friend Johnny Depp and says that he is skeptical of Amber Hard‘s allegations of domestic abuse.

“What I know, there’s a lot of trouble from the girl that sounds a little manipulative,” the 49-year-old actor told the Daily News’ Confidenti@l. “It sounds a little bit like there’s something really twisted about that girl … but I don’t know the specifics.”

“It seems the fact that his mom passed away and she filed for divorce two days later and then she wants money and she’s saying she got hit, it’s almost like, wait, I saw them not too long ago. Maybe it was January, a dinner for the Oscars or something like that,” Benicio said. “He was there with her and they were fine.”

Benicio added that Johnny is “a nice guy, very caring, very smart.”

Will Smith, Mark Ruffalo & More Highlighted in THR's Roundtable Issue

Will Smith, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Caine and Joel Edgerton take the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Actor Roundtable issue.

Here’s what they had to share with the mag:

Will, on prejudice vs. racism: “My wife and I were just having this conversation, and we were going to the dictionary for ‘prejudice’ versus ‘racism.’ Everybody is prejudiced. Everybody has their life experiences that make them prefer one thing over another — it makes them prefer blond hair over a brunette; if you see somebody with dark skin walking down the street, you have a different reaction than you have [with] someone who is 5-foot-1 and white. But there is a connotation with racism of superiority: You feel that your race generally is superior. And I have to say, I live with constant prejudice, but racism is actually rare — someone who thinks their race is superior. I don’t want to work for them. I don’t want to work at that company. And the times I have come in contact with it, you get away from those people.”

Joel, on racism in the industry: “When you’re faced with it, too, with social media, like what happened recently with Michael B. Jordan in Fantastic Four [who played a character who is white in the comic] — people actively being racist, making those sort of comments about Star Wars [casting a black star]. Some of it is very, very alarming.”
