'Living life again!': Amber Heard spotted enjoying low-key dinner with Whitney in Hamptons
Amber Heard, 36, was spotted enjoying a low-key dinner out in public in the Hamptons following her high-profile judicial setback. According to reports, nearby diners spotted the 'Aquaman' star, who was awarded $2 million in the defamation suit against Johnny Depp, dining at a Greek restaurant in Water Mill with her sister, Whitney Heard, and Whitney's two children on Monday, June 13.
Heard, who was mercilessly ridiculed on social media following the judgment, did not appear to be avoiding her Hollywood colleagues, since the restaurant, Calissa, is popular with Hamptons A-listers. A fellow diner stated to Page 6, “It was good to see her out living her life again.” While Depp, 59, celebrated his victory having a curry house in Birmingham, England, shuttered so he could have a lavish supper with friends. Amber Heard may have lost her huge legal battle against ex-spouse Depp, but she surely made a more gracious exit from the proceedings than her ex-husband. Whitney has stood by Amber's side throughout the trial, testifying and posting on Instagram following the judgment, "I still stand with you, sissy."
Ever since the defamation trial ended on June 1, Heard, who is supposed to pay Depp more than $10 million in damages, had been spotted in public multiple times. The 'Rum Diary' star was seen boarding a private plane on Friday, June 10, and was spotted arriving in New York City from a private airport in New Jersey wearing black Yves Saint Laurent bags, black leggings, and a cropped green jacket. After spending time in the city, the 'Aquaman' actress was seen clutching a pair of files as she returned to Teterboro Airport in Bergen County. She then proceeded to Washington, DC.

However, Heard's choice of a costly mode of transportation is unusual, given that her lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, stated that Heard could "absolutely not" afford to pay so much money a day after the decision was published, and a New York Post insider stated that the celebrity is now "broke" as a result of her lavish spending and high legal bills. The 36-year-old actress was caught departing the private plane in Washington, DC, and boarding an SUV with a few others, including her sister, Whitney Henriquez.
A sit-down interview with Heard about the trial will debut on 'Dateline' with segments running all week on 'Today.' Amber who previously called the jury's verdict a “setback” for women, stated in the teaser that she does not blame the jurors for their decision.

The ex-spouses had sued one other for defamation following their acrimonious 2017 divorce. On June 1, the court ruled in Depp's favor, even though the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor had lost a different but similar legal battle with a UK tabloid last year.
