Amber Heard’s part in ‘Aquaman 2’ was cut after Johnny Depp’s attorney termed her abuse charges a ‘Hoax.’

Amber Heard denied that Johnny Depp secured her the position in Aquaman during cross-examination, saying that it was her good audition that got her the part.

On Tuesday, Heard joined the stand as a witness, and during a dramatic cross-examination by Depp’s defense attorney, Camille Vasquez, the actress appeared bewildered when Vasquez said, “Mr. Depp got you the position in Aquaman didn’t he?”

“Excuse me?” said the 36-year-old actress, prompting Vasquez to ask the question again. “Ms. Vasquez, no. I got the part after auditioning. That’s the way it works “Heard retorted. “Your envy is really sad,” Vasquez said, paraphrasing Depp as saying to Heard. According to what was heard, Depp did indeed say such to her.

“You were the jealous one in this relationship, weren’t you, Ms. Heard?” Vasquez questioned, building on that comment. “I think he was implying I was jealous of his career,” Heard answered, causing Vasquez to accuse Heard of reversing the situation to claim Depp was the one who was jealous. 

“Johnny has always been envious. When I was working, when I was doing anything. Yes, he’s always been envious of others.” While testifying, Heard accused Depp of being jealous on several occasions.

When Heard took the witness stand on Monday, the topic of Aquaman came up. When asked about the sequel, Heard said she “worked really hard to stay in the movie” after “contact halted” between her and Warner Bros. after Depp’s attorney called Heard’s abuse allegations a “hoax” in a Washington Post op-ed. Depp filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard after reading the op-ed.

They “didn’t want to include me in the film,” Heard testified, and though she did appear in the sequel, she claimed it was a “very trimmed down version of that role.”

Heard added, “I battled so hard to stay in the movie.” 

“They didn’t want me to be in the movie.” While she was able to keep her job, Heard explained that it is “a very pared-down version of that part,” as she was “given fresh copies of the screenplay that had taken out scenes that had action in it.”

Heard avoided revealing any details about the plot, but one scene involved “two characters battling with one other, and they basically cut a bunch out of my role.” (Warner Bros. has been contacted for comment by Vulture.)

On the third day of her defamation trial against Depp, Heard made allegations about suffering reputational and professional loss. While Depp is suing Heard over an op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post in 2018, Heard is suing Depp for the purported fallout from Waldman’s words.

Heard, who portrays Mera, the female lead in the Aquaman sequel, claims she was paid $2 million. After playing Mera in the 2017 film Justice League and then again in 2018’s Aquaman, this would be her third and final appearance as the character. In March 2023, the sequel will be released in theatres.
