Golden Heard will be able to make sense of her side of the Johnny Depp preliminary adventure in an impending meeting with Savannah Guthrie this week authentically.

Heard, 36, will plunk down for a visit with NBC on June 17 to examine the maligning legal dispute that enamored the country.

The “Today” show dropped a mystery for the stunner chat on Monday, with the “Stepfather” star unveiling her perspective over the preliminary.

She uncovered that while she doesn’t fault jury, she accepts they succumbed to the

“phenomenal entertainer”

“Indeed, even someone who is certain I’m meriting this disdain and nastiness, regardless of whether you feel that I’m lying, you actually couldn’t tell me — look at me without flinching and tell me — that you think via web-based entertainment there’s been a fair portrayal,”

Heard said in the clasp.

“You can’t let me know that you feel that this has been fair.”

A representative for Heard informed The Post regarding the impending meeting,

“Johnny Depp’s lawful group covered the media for quite a long time after the decision with various proclamations and meetings on TV, and Depp himself did likewise via web-based entertainment.”

“Ms. Heard just expected to answer what they forcefully did last week; she did as such by offering her viewpoints and sentiments, quite a bit of which she was not permitted to do on the testimony box,”

they proceeded.

While the full meeting will air Friday on “Dateline NBC” at 8 p.m. EST, parts will air Tuesday and Wednesday on NBC’s “TODAY” show.

“Aquaman”

actress about how she thought the jury’s decision may impact free speech in America and other women coming out to talk about domestic abuse.

Heard also discussed Depp’s libel case with The Sun, and how she sees major differences between the media in the United Kingdom and in the United States, the outlet reported.

The

“Pirates of the Caribbean”

star lost the case with the British tabloid in 2020.

A Fairfax, Virginia jury awarded Depp, 58, on June 1 with more than $10 million in finding that his ex-wife defamed his reputation and damaged his career with her claims of domestic abuse in a 2018 op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post.

He also scored $5 million in punitive damages while Heard was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages and no punitive damages.

After the grueling six-week trial, Heard released a statement regarding her loss, saying she was

“heartbroken”

over the verdict.

“The disappointment I feel today is beyond words,”

the “Danish Girl” star’s rep told The Post.

“I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence and sway of my ex-husband.”

She went on,
“I believe Johnny’s attorneys succeeded in getting the jury to overlook the key issue of Freedom of Speech and ignore evidence that was so conclusive that we won in the UK.

“I’m sad I lost this case,” Heard’s statement concluded. “But I am sadder still that I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American — to speak freely and openly.”
