Amber Heard’s first interview after defamation case

Published

on

Amber Heard is speaking out after the hate she’s receiving online during her court battle with Johnny Depp

The Aquaman star is revealing all in her first interview since the verdict, saying she didn’t blame the jury for believing her ex-husband.

Two weeks ago, a jury said her domestic abuse claim was defamatory and false.

“I don’t presume the average person should know those things. And so I don’t take it personally,” Heard told the NBC journalist.

“But even somebody who is sure I’m deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation,

“You cannot tell me that you think that this has been fair.”

In a new clip released from NBC showing snippets of the full interview to come, Heard says representation hasn’t been fair.

Support for the Pirates of the Caribbean actor far outweighed that for Heard on social media during the trial.

The seven-week televised trial was one of the most high-profile celebrity cases of recent years.

When telling Heard the jury thought she was lying, Heard says she understands why they had come to their decision.

“How could they, after listening to three and a half weeks of testimony about how I was a non-credible person, how not to believe a word that came out of my mouth?”

Full interview will air in the U.S. this week.

The Academy Award nominations have been revealed

The film industry’s most prestigious night of nights is almost here, and the nominations have been revealed

The indie sci-fi comedy drama, “Everything Everywhere All At Once”, scored the most Academy Award nominations, with 11 in total.

It was closely followed by “All Quiet on the Western Front”.

Not far behind were fan favourites including “Elvis”, “Top Gun: Maverick”, and the recent “Black Panther” and “Avatar” films.

Streaming services have not had as strong a year, with Netflix’s “All Quiet On The Western Front” the only nominee from a streaming service in the top category.

There has been an extremely strong showing for Irish talent this year. “The Quiet Girl” is recognised in the best international feature category.

Colin Farrell, Brendan Fraser, Paul Mescal are all in contention for Best Actor and Austin Butler scored his first ever Oscars nomination for his role as Elvis Presley.

And when it comes to Best Actress Cate Blanchett, Andrea Riseborough and Michelle Williams are leading the pack alongside Ana de Armas, who has been nominated for the first time.

Indian action epic “RRR” stands a strong chance of beating Rihanna and Lady Gaga to best original song.

The catchy Naatu Naatu has already won the Golden Globe, and is very likely to repeat its success at the Oscars.

The event all happens on March 12, when you can find out which stars will be taking home the iconic gold Oscar statuette.

Say goodbye to sharing Netflix with your friends

Netflix announces new tech to stop password sharing

The days of sharing a Netflix account with your friends are quickly coming to an end.

The streaming giant is set to introduce new tech which will prevent multiple households leeching off one subscription.

Execs believe around 100 million homes engage in the practice, which the company says “undermines” its ability to invest and improve content.

It’s been a rough 12 months for Netflix.

Last year, the company recorded it first subscriber loss in more than a decade.

While no exact date has been set for the worldwide rollout of the new policy, it could begin as early as March.

Users will be required to have their own account and login, unless you live in the same household as someone who has an account.

It follows a number of trials and introductions Netflix made throughout 2022.

“While our terms of use limit use of Netflix to a household, we recognise this is a change for members who share their account more broadly,” Netflix said.

“So we’ve worked hard to build additional new features that improve the Netflix experience, including the ability for members to review which devices are using their account and to transfer a profile to a new account.”

Boris Johnson under fire over BBC appointment

The BBC’s Chairman Richard Sharp once helped Johnson with a personal loan

Boris Johnson is facing criticism after it emerged the individual he selected to chair the BBC previously helped Britain’s former PM with his own personal finances.

The Labour Party is calling on the nation’s watchdog to examine the recruitment process which led to Richard Sharp securing the role.

Sharp is a former Goldman Sachs banker and The Sunday Times says he helped Johnson sort out a guarantee on a loan worth up to £800,000.

The former PM has denied any wrongdoing.

As has Foreign Secretary James Cleverly, who says the appointment was made on merit.

On Sunday, Johnson arrived in Ukraine for talks in Kyiv with Volodymyr Zelensky.

Johnson says: “The suffering of the people of Ukraine has gone on for too long”.
