From glass to self-addressed letters, fans have noticed that Amber Heard’s testimony bears many resemblances to David Fincher’s Gone Girl.
Amber Heard’s recent testimony in her high-stakes defamation suit with Johnny Depp has raised a few eyebrows on social media. Viewers noticed suspicious similarities between Aquaman the star’s statements and David Fincher’s scenes Gone Girl, the 2014 love thriller starring Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck. Some people even accused Heard of stealing ideas from the movie to sue her ex-husband.
Perhaps the most disturbing accusation is Aquaman The star made against Depp is that he physically abused her with a bottle of drink and threatened to “cut” her face. She described the alleged incident in explicit detail, claiming that Depp’s aggression was fueled by his jealousy of her work with Eddie Redmayne on Danish girl as well as Billy Bob Thornton on The fields of London. Dr. Dawn Hughes, a forensic psychologist employed by Heard’s team of lawyers, also tested these allegations.
Such a scenario is strikingly similar to a single scene Gone Girl where Amy Dunne, the main character of the film, describes exactly the same “glass” incident to the authorities. Of course, it quickly turns out that Dunne invents everything, even going so far as to inflict damage on himself to make his lies consistent and credible. Viewers also noticed that Dunne wrote letters in the film; a practice that Heard claims he did during his marriage to Depp. It is important to note that these similarities do not necessarily invalidate Heard’s assertions.
However, what remains unclear to some people is whether Heard’s medical records match her claims. In Fincher’s house Gone GirlDunne was hospitalized after her “bottle” incident, which seems to be the next obvious step in such a situation. Therefore, viewers questioned whether Heard was examined after her “glass” incident, as the current hypothesis is that she did not seek care after the alleged event.
In the meantime, a petition is underway to remove Hear from Aquaman 2 garnered more than 4.5 million signatures, while a new petition for Depp’s reinstatement in the next Pirates of the Caribbean is approaching 1 million signatures. At this time, it is unclear whether Warner Bros. and Disney may or may not give in to fan demands, but it is certain that both Heard’s and Depp’s careers will be forever changed by this defamation case, no matter the outcome. The $ 50 million defamation suit is expected to end on May 19 with the judge’s final verdict.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is scheduled for theatrical release on March 17, 2023.
