Most superstars are remaining mum on the court standoff between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard in the midst of their continuous maligning preliminary, yet a chosen handful have picked sides.
Maybe the greater part are excessively tired of taking intensity from the general population — as Drew Barrymore did when she “made light” of the claims on her syndicated program and afterward needed to backtrack.
“It’s, similar to, one layer of insane — it’s a seven-layer plunge of craziness,”
the “Never Been Kissed” star had recently said on
“The Drew Barrymore Show”
about the case.
Depp, 58, is suing Heard, 36, more than a 2018 Washington Post commentary she composed, in which she called herself a casualty of sexual brutality.
Albeit the “Aquaman” star didn’t name the “Privateers of the Caribbean” star in the piece, it was composed a couple of years after she had blamed him for maltreatment in a 2016 controlling request.
Since the two entertainers have stood up at a Fairfax County, Va., town hall, more stars are sharing whom they accept, only half a month prior to the jury says something regarding their choice.
Who’s supporting Johnny Depp:
Chris Rock took the stage during the UK leg of his “Ego Death” world tour on May 12 and reportedly discussed Depp’s allegations that Heard left poop on his bed.
According to British digital publisher LADBible, the comic told the crowd,
“Believe all women, believe all women … except Amber Heard …”
He then added — apparently believing Depp’s claims —
“What the f–k is she on? She s–t in his bed! She’s fine but she’s not s–tting fine.”
Heard has denied defecating on her ex’s bed.
Ireland Baldwin called Heard a “terrible person” on an Instagram Story amid the trial.
“The thing is, I know women who are exactly like this,”
Alec Baldwin’s oldest child said in late April.
“They are manipulative and cold and they use their very womanhood to play victim and turn the world against the man because we live in a society where it’s cool to say men are all the worst and blah blah f–kity blah.”
Joe Rogan condemned Heard on his popular podcast,
“The Joe Rogan Experience,” saying she is a “crazy lady” and that her allegations are “not true.”
“I’m watching this trial, and, like, it’s a cautionary tale about believing in bulls–t, forming a narrative in your head like, ‘We’re rebels together,’”
he said to his millions of listeners.
“People that are just manipulative and full of s–t like that? [Comedian] Doug Stanhope knows her. Stanhope’s buddies with Johnny Depp. He wrote something … like a little essay about how full of s–t she is, and she threatened to sue him, and I think he had to wind up taking it down.”
Bill Burr admitted in early May that he hasn’t necessarily seen the Depp-Heard trial because he’s “too big a Johnny Depp fan” to watch it, but said he thinks people should apologize to the “Edward Scissorhands” star if Heard loses.
“From what I’ve seen, the guy is f—ing destroying,”
the comedian, 52, said on the “Monday Morning Podcast,” according to Mediate.
“And what’s great about this, is if he really does expose this woman for lying, I’m wondering. All these people that, you know, just accepted her lies about him, if they’re going to apologize somehow.”
Aniston’s support of Depp has been more subtle than others’, taking to social media to quietly take his side.
Who’s supporting Amber Heard:
Not as many celebrities have come to Heard’s defense, but Howard Stern did not hold back in blasting Depp for his “overacting” at the trial.
The legendary radio host said on his SiriusXM show in late April,
“The reason he wanted that on — he wanted it televised [because] that’s what narcissists do.”
“I think Johnny Depp is a huge narcissist and what I mean by that is — he figured, ‘I’ll put this on TV and because I’m so persuasive and because I’m so smart, I’m such a wonderful guy.’”
“If he isn’t acting — I mean, he’s so overacting because he’s writing his own material as he goes along. You know, I gotta tell you, he’s wrong. He shouldn’t be putting this on TV in any shape.”
Ellen Barkin is set to show her support for Heard where it matters most — in court.
The “Big Easy” actress, 68, will take the stand to testify on behalf of Heard because she previously alleged that Depp was abusive to her when they dated.
Barkin also issued a statement in Depp’s trial against The Sun in 2020, claiming the actor had thrown a bottle of wine across a hotel room once and gotten jealous and angry.
However, Depp claimed that his ex held a grudge and her allegations were “untrue.”
Barkin and Depp briefly dated in 1994.
