Amber Heard has insisted she will ‘stand by every word of her testimony until the day she dies’.
The Aquaman star reiterated claims her ex-husband Johnny Depp ‘hit’ her during her first sit-down interview since losing their high-profile defamation trial.
Speaking during a special TODAY interview, which will be released in full later this week, Heard was asked by host Savannah Guthrie: “He [Depp] said he never hit you. Is that a lie?” Heard replied: “Yes it is.”

The Aquaman actor added: “To my dying day, I will stand by every word of my testimony.”
The mum-of-one’s full interview will air on the 14 and 15 of June on NBC's TODAY and Friday, June 17 on Dateline NBC 8.00pm/7.00pm CT.
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.
Elsewhere in the interview, 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 told Guthrie. “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.
"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."
Last month, Ron Schnell – a social media expert and a witness for Heard – told the court he saw more than a million negative tweets about Heard during the course of the trial.
