Johnny Depp 'HATED' James Franco, thought Amber Heard was having an affair with him, claims actress
Fairfax, Virginia: Amber Heard has claimed that Johnny Depp was wildly jealous of her working relationship with co-star James Franco and even exploded on a flight from Boston to Los Angeles where he kicked and slapped her. Heard and Franco filmed 'The Adderall Diaries' in 2014 and had love scenes together. Testifying for the second day on Thursday, May 5, Heard said Depp accused her of 'liking' filming the many kissing and sex scenes.
“He was mad at me for taking the job with James Franco,” she said. “He hated, hated James Franco and was already accusing me of kind of secretly having a thing with him in my past since we had done Pineapple Express together.”
Heard and Franco had previously worked together for the 2008 comedy Pineapple Express. The two then reunited in 2015 for 'The Adderall Diaries', which she filmed in New York City while Depp was off filming 'Black Mass' in Boston. Heard claimed the romantic scenes would cause Depp to get angry and “scream” at her and they used to argue a lot over the phone.
Heard claimed in court, "He had already been upset with me and accused me in many arguments about not telling him about scenes that I had, if I had a kissing scene."
Heard continued, "Any sort of romantic scene, and I wasn’t explicit about what I was going to do, then I was accused of having withheld information and hiding it from him. So I didn’t want the fight, of course, I didn’t want the argument, but I had to kind of egg-shell tip-toe around how to tell him when I had any sort of scene like that."
Moreover, when Heard described her scenes with Franco to Depp, she claims her ex-husband 'screamed' at her like she said told him they had had an affair. "He was that angry at me." When the former couple reunited to celebrate Lily-Rose, Depp's daughter's birthday, Heard claims she knew "in every cell of my body something was wrong."
When Heard and Depp boarded a private jet to Los Angeles to get to this party, Heard claims that Depp asked her if Franco, 44, "slipped a tongue" while kissing for shooting.
Heard said: "He was saying really disgusting things about my body. About how I liked it, how I responded. Then he started straight up taunting me. ‘I know you liked it."
Things turned physical, Heard claimed, during a plane ride when Depp allegedly threw ice cubes and utensils at her. After trying to remove herself from the conversation Depp allegedly slapped her across the face in front of the plane staff and this was the first time something like this had happened in public.
“It was the first time anything like that had happened in front of somebody. No one said anything. No one did anything. You could hear a pin drop on that plane. You could feel the tension. But nobody did anything. … I felt so embarrassed that he could kick me to the ground in front of people," as she teared up.
Depp confirmed that they had argued about Franco and that he believed Heard was having an affair with him. But he had claimed in his testimony that Heard had been “actively searching” to instigate a fight. “I knew that she was ready for some kind of brawl, and I sat on the plane drawing in my notebook. She would verbally heckle, hassle, accuse, poke, prod physically, psychologically, and emotionally,” Depp said.
Netizens have shared their opinions on this. One said, "I'll never get over the fact that Amber Heard cheated on Johnny Depp with James Franco, it's like going to a five-star restaurant, walking all the way to the back and eating from the dumpster."
