Heard Detailed The First Time She Met Depp, Saying It Was "unusual And Remarkable"
Heard said she had auditioned for a movie Depp was producing and when she went to his office, she assumed it would be to audition for him, but it turned out to be a long meeting where they bonded over books, music and poetry.
She said it was strange because while she wasn't a "fan" of Depp, she knew who he was, since he's one of the most famous actors in the world. "So, it was already a weird thing to go and get called in his office. I'm a no-name actor," she said. "I was 22, I think. I thought it was unusual. It
was weird because he was twice my age and world-famous actor and here we are getting along about obscure books and old blues. I thought it was remarkable. I thought it was usual and remarkable. I left there feeling like, wow."
Heard Alleged Depp Told Her He Could Kill Her
Heard said there was an altercation during a family vacation on a yacht, where Depp thought she told his kids that he was "a drunk" – and it led to a physical altercation, and Depp saying he could "f***ing kill" her.
Heard said she had not talked about Depp's drinking with his daughter, Lily Rose. Still, he accused her of doing so and got angry.
"So, I was trying to tell him, I was trying to comfort her, I was trying to protect you. He basically was accusing me of doing this thing and making them aware that he was drinking again. And he slams me up against the side wall of the bedroom...slams me up by my neck and holds me there for a second and tells me that he could f***ing kill me," Heard said.
She claimed Depp called her an embarrassment, which hurt more than the alleged threat. "I'm very, very, very much in love with this whole family now, and he's saying I'm an embarrassment to him and that somehow stuck in me more than the 'I can f***ing kill you,'" she said. "It just sounded like hyperbole, sounded like something he was just saying. But the names he was calling me and pushing me up against the wall by my neck. It hurt hurt. It hurt my feelings. It hurt."

"Like, he was insinuating that I was doing it or something? It made no sense. And he was telling me, we're going to conduct a cavity search. Like, just shoved his fingers inside me. I just - I just stood there staring at this light. I just stood there, while he did that."

Heard said she looked into his eyes and I saw her future, and "blind hope." "I thought if we were married then this is real this is isn't a thing of – this isn't chaotic, this will change, you know. I just had so much hope in that moment," she said.
She asked if he was serious, because he didn't have a ring. "In my experience, Johnny can be very impulsive," she said.
