‘Her eyes stayed emotionless’: Behavioral analyst decodes Amber Heard’s NBC interview
'Some displays look a bit exaggerated when her spoken words did not have that much intensity,' Jesús Enrique Rosas added
Amber Heard’s fever is not appearing to be dying soon. The 36-year-old actress, who recently lost a defamation case against her ex-husband Johnny Depp, has now been ridiculed for “inconsistencies” in her interview with NBC after the June 1 verdict. Behavioral analyst Jesús Enrique Rosas has also claimed that “her eyes stayed emotionless most of the time” during the sit-down.
Heard gave an exclusive interview to Savannah Guthrie after the blockbuster trial ended. In the interview, ‘The Rum Diary’ star was seen to be presenting her side of the story while calling out the online attacks she faced over the course of the trial. She also slammed Depp and his legal team. She told Guthrie, “To my dying day (I) will stand by every word of my testimony.”
Though Heard claimed she loves the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star and she’s “no bad feelings or ill will toward him at all”, she stated that the jurors' decision in his favor was because of his being a great actor. “I'll put it this way, how could they [jurors] make a judgment, how could they not come to that conclusion [that I couldn't be believed]? They had said in those seats and heard over three weeks of nonstop, relentless testimony from paid employees and towards the end of the trial, randos, as I say. I don't blame them, I don't blame them, I actually understand, he's a beloved character and people feel that they know him. He's a fantastic actor.
"Again, how could they after listening to three and a half weeks of testimony about how I was an uncredible person and not to believe a word that came out of my mouth,” she remarked.
The ‘Aquaman’ actress then went on to blast those who assassinated her character online while she and Depp were having one of the most intense moments of their lives inside the Virginia court. “I don’t care what one thinks about me or what judgments you want to make about what happened in the privacy of my own home, in my marriage, behind closed doors. I don’t presume the average person should know those things. And so I don’t take it personally. But even somebody who is sure I’m deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation. You cannot tell me that you think that this has been fair,” she added.
Now, Rosas has a lot to say about her interview as he analyzed “rapid changes in contradicting emotions" with "sadness to arrogance, to sadness again, in a matter of seconds." He told Indy100 that Heard’s “rapid bursts of blinking signaled anxiety and a lack of facial sync between the upper and lower area of the face.” He also noted that “she tried to express emotions with her mouth, but her eyes stayed emotionless most of the time,” before stating her actions “raised doubts about the legitimacy of her words and whether she truly believes what she's saying.”
Rosas also said that Heard’s “spoken words did not make sense,” but mentioned that it may be because of “heavy editing.” The body language expert added that “some displays look a bit exaggerated when her spoken words did not have that much intensity.”
The interview came weeks after the jurors ruled heavily in favor of Depp. The 58-year-old was given $10.35 million in damages while his former wife got $2 million, leaving her disheartened.
