Amber Heard Says Johnny Depp 'Hated' James Franco

Amber Heard has claimed her ex-husband Johnny Depp 'hated' co-star James Franco.

Amber Heard has taken to the stand for the first time this week amid the ongoing $50 million (£38 million) defamation lawsuit filed against her by Johnny Depp.

Depp is suing his ex-partner over an op-ed piece she wrote in 2018 for The Washington Post.

While Heard didn't mention Depp by name, he claimed her insinuation she was a victim of domestic violence during their marriage has ruined his reputation and career.

Both actors personal lives have come under the microscope during the trial, including Heard's relationships with the likes of Elon Musk, and now James Franco - particularly after Depp admitted in court to being suspicious of Heard and Franco having an affair.

Heard claimed Depp was 'mad' at her for taking the job in the thriller The Adderall Diaries (2015) because of Franco also being in it.

She stated: "He hated, hated James Franco.

"And was already accusing me of kind of secretly having a thing with him in my past, since we had done Pineapple Express together."

Heard went on to recall an alleged conversation which took place between her and Depp on a plane ride from Boston to Los Angeles.

She said: "We take off and at some point he's asking me what's wrong with me, what do I have... Do I have something to tell him? Or want to talk to me about your day yesterday?

"I already know that he's drunk, I already know he's using. He reeks of weed and alcohol. I mean his breath smelt so bad.

"I could anticipate that there was a no-win situation here. There was no me talking myself out of this, or talking him down. You know a lot of my argument and my involvement in them are me trying to diffuse."

Heard was interrupted with an objection, however she went on to claim that Depp went from asking her, 'Do you have something to tell me' to, 'You want to tell me how much you liked it' and, 'Tell me did he slip a tongue?'

She continued: "It got worse and worse, just more. It went from asking me how my kissing scene went or sex scene went. To asking me what James Franco had done in the scene.

"To being really explicit about my body. [...] He was saying really disgusting things about my body, about how I liked it, about how I responded.

"Then he started straight up taunting me. 'I know you liked it'. He called me a go-getter. He called me a slut. And this was happening with his security and his assistants on the plane."

Depp was similarly reported as having 'a particular issue' with Franco because of the 'intimate scenes' in the film by one of Heard's friends Joshua Drew, who testified in court.

He claimed the couple would end up fighting if Franco's name was brought up.

A clinical psychologist also took to the stand to claim Depp had 'kicked' Heard 'in the back' during a fight about Franco.
