Johnny Depp’s defamation case against Amber Heard continues with high stakes because the winner will take all. For those who have been watching the trial, you might have noticed Heard constantly glances at Depp, but he has not made eye contact with her at all.
Depp’s lawyer, Camille Vasquez, asked Heard, “You know exactly why Mr. Depp won't look back at you, don't you?" to which Heard said, “I do.” Vasquez added, “He promised you you would never see his eyes again, is that true? [...] He's kept that promise, hasn't he?” and Heard replied, "As far as I know, he cannot look at me.”
Heard's spokesperson had a different take on why Depp couldn't look at her, stating "Small wonder Mr. Depp does not have the fortitude or courage to even look at Ms. Heard at all throughout the proceedings." Either way, he's clearly avoiding eye contact for a reason.
