Over the past week, a report was leaked that allegedly stated that Amber Heard had been axed from the comic movie, Aquaman.

However, Warner Bros, the studio responsible for producing Aquaman 2, have not released any statement addressing the rumors.

Amber Heard's spokesperson came out to say that the rumour is inaccurate, insensitive, and slightly insane.


Amber Heard has also opened up about heading into the courthouse each day of her six-week-long defamation trial against her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

She also detailed what it was like facing massive crowds of his adoring fans.

In part one of her sit-down interview with TODAY " with Savannah, which was released on Tuesday, the "Aquaman" star reflected on the dueling defamation trial.


According to Amber Heard, the Virginia jury ultimately ruled that she had defamed Depp and explained why the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star's "energized" fans made her feel "less than human" during the trial.

"Every single day I passed from three, four, sometimes six blocks, city blocks lined with people holding signs saying, 'Burn the witch,' 'Death to Amber,'" Heard vividly recalled.

"After three and a half weeks, I took the stand and saw just a courtroom packed full of Captain Jack Sparrow fans who were vocal, energized." She continued to narrate.


 Check out the interview below:

When Savannah asked Heard if she could "put into words how that felt," the actress said,

"This was the most humiliating and horrible thing I've ever been through. I have never felt more removed from my own humanity. I felt less than human."

On June 1, after six weeks of testimony and wall-to-wall media coverage, a verdict was reached in the defamation trial and a jury totally sided with Johnny Depp.

The jury ruled unanimously in favor of the actor, saying that Heard made her allegations with actual malice.

They also awarded $10 million dollars to Depp in compensatory damages, plus $5 million in punitive damages.

Since there's a cap on punitive damages in Virginia, Heard will only have to pay $350,000 of that $5 million.

Heard did score a minor victory herself, with the jury deciding statements made by Depp's lawyer Adam Waldman were defamatory and awarded her $2 million in compensatory damages.
