Amber Heard has denied that she’s been cut from Aquaman 2, which has already been filmed and is set to be released in December.
On Tuesday (14 June), a report started circling that claimed Heard had been ‘recast’ in the sequel and her scenes were going to be ‘reshot’ with another actress.
However, Heard was quick to rubbish the claims, calling them ‘inaccurate’ and ‘insensitive’.
TMZ published an article with the headline 'Amber Heard Cut From Aquaman 2, Will Be Recast', and claimed to have spoken to a Warner Bros. source who said: “Warner Bros. decided to recast Amber Heard‘s role after screentesting the movie. They are going to be doing reshoots with Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman.”
Reporting on the article, MailOnline reached out to Heard’s rep, who quickly shut down the rumours.
They told the paper: “The rumour mill continues as it has from day one - inaccurate, insensitive, and slightly insane.”
UNILAD has approached Heard's representatives for comment.
Heard is once again dominating headlines this week, having sat down with Today’s Savannah Guthrie for an intimate interview about her and ex-husband Johnny Depp’s high-profile defamation trial, which she lost.
Although Heard has shared statements about the trial online, this new sit-down interview marks the first time she has spoken in depth about the verdict.
Heard was ordered by the US court to award Depp $15 million in damages over domestic abuse claims she made in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post.
The charges were later capped at $10.35 million and in a separate verdict Heard was awarded $2 million in damages via a counterclaim.
Speaking frankly to Guthrie, Heard said she doesn't blame' the jury for the decision they reached, but called the negative social media attention she received 'unfair'.
"I don’t blame them,” Heard said. “I actually understand. He’s a beloved character and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor."
Of the negative social media attention, the star continued: “I don’t care what one thinks about me or what judgments you want to make about what happened in the privacy of my own home, in my marriage, behind closed doors.
“I don’t presume the average person should know those things. And so I don’t take it personally."
Heard added: "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."
