Amber Heard takes the stand in the ongoing defamation trial brought against her by her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, on May 4. Heard remembered many unpleasant occasions in her relationship with Depp throughout her testimony, including the first time he reportedly beat her and did a "cavity search" on her.

Heard's evidence, according to psychologist Cooper Lawrence told Channel 7's Sunrise, "comes across as a little bit false," and she "sounded rehearsed." Furthermore, much of the general public agrees and believes that the 36-year-old seems to be quoting movie lines in her testimony. Spectators watching the trial rushed to social media to say that Heard's testimony seemed and sounded strangely familiar. Many people learned Heard was maybe taking quotes from movies and TV shows after doing some investigating.

On May 4, one Twitter user tweeted "If you were Watching Amber Heard and felt like some of those lines felt strangely familiar, they are. She's stealing from film and TV and books. Here's a thread of what I have seen so far!" The second screenshot from the thread was by Micel Ko that read, "I believe the 'Drinks lots of tea' is mimicking how Julia Roberts said it to Hugh Grant in the movie 'Notting Hill.'"

Additionally, during the trial, Heard revealed that Depp had slapped her once and then instantly stated that "he'd rather cut off his hand" than lay it on her again. According to another user's tweet that line is said after the title character slaps Veda across the face in 1945's Mildred Pierce.

One of the most bizarre claims made is that Heard, according to a TikTok user, sums up the plot of The Talented Mr. Ripley. The unnamed user stated what the Aquaman actress revealed during her deposition: "The thing with [Johnny] ... it's like the sun shines on you, and it's glorious. And then he forgets you, and it's very, very cold ... When you have his attention, you feel like you're the only person in the world; that's why everyone loves him so much."

Heard simply substituted Johnny for Dickie and used the following quote from the 1999 psychological thriller: "The thing with Dickie … it’s like the sun shines on you, and it’s glorious. And then he forgets you, and it’s very, very cold ... When you have his attention, you feel like you’re the only person in the world; that’s why everybody loves him so much."

However, a quick fact-check proved that the allegations largely revolved around spreading rumors that Heard was "acting" during her testimony by quoting movie lines as her own. Despite the fact that the image below depicts an actual scene from the film "The Talented Mr. Ripley," Heard did not utter these words during her opening statement. Although the meme shows a genuine passage from the 1999 film, it was indeed Heard's lawyer who made the opening statement on Heard's behalf.

The assertion that Heard quoted these phrases from "The Talented Mr. Ripley" was made without evidence on social media. Those who claimed it didn't post a video of Heard making the supposed statement, nor did they link to any news items that had the quote or a transcript from the trial that would back up the claim. Since the video of the trial was made public, the former fact was highly suspicious.
