Paul
Bettany
recently
opened
up
about
having
his
private
texts
about
Amber
Heard
with
Johnny
Depp
made
public
during
Depp’s
libel
case
against
The
Sun
last
year.
The
texts
exchange
between
the
actors
had
taken
place
in
2013
and
were
read
in
court
in
2020.

Paul Bettany, johnny depp,

Depp
had
sued
the
newspaper’s
publisher
after
a
2018
headline
labelled
him
a
“wife
beater”,
after
his
ex-wife
Amber
Heard
made
public
claims.
However,
Depp
lost
the
suit
as
the
court
found
the
claim
to
be
“substantially
true”.

Now,
speaking
to
The
Independent,
Bettany
opened
up
about
the
texts
being
made
public
during
the
trial.
He
told
the
newspaper,
it
was
“a
really
difficult
subject
to
talk
about” and
that
he
believed
addressing
it
would
“just
pour
fuel
on
the
fire”.

However,
he
called
the
incident
“very
strange
moment,”
he
added,
“What
was
strange
about
it
was
you
suddenly
have
one
of
the
most
scabrous
newspapers
in
London
and
their
lawyers
pouring
through
your
texts
for
the
last
10
years.
Can
you
imagine
what
it
would
be
like,
honestly,
to
have
a
bunch
of
lawyers
go
through
every
one
of
your
emails
and
texts
for
10
years?
All
I
can
tell
you
is
that
it
was
an
unpleasant
feeling.”

For
the
unversed,
The
texts
were
read
during
a
preliminary
hearing
ahead
of
the
trial
in
February
2020.
In
one
text,
Depp
reportedly
wrote,
“Let’s
burn
Amber!!!” to
which
Bettany
responded:
“Having
thought
it
through
I
don’t
think
we
should
burn
Amber

she’s
delightful
company
and
easy
on
the
eye,
plus
I’m
not
sure
she’s
a
witch.
We
could
of
course
try
the
English
course
of
action
in
these
predicaments
­-
we
do
a
drowning
test.
Thoughts?”

Depp
responded
by
saying,
“Let’s
drown
her
before
we
burn
her!!!
I
will
f***
her
burnt
corpse
afterwards
to
make
sure
she’s
dead.”

Bettany
and
Depp
who
worked
together
in
2014’s
sci-fi
thriller
Transcendence
and
Mortdecai
in
2015
have
been
close
friends.
Bettany
reportedly
had
also
defended
Depp
against
the
allegations
by
Amber
in
a
tweet
in
2016.
He
wrote:
“Known
Johnny
Depp
for
years
and
through
several
relationships.
He’s
the
sweetest,
kindest,
gentlest
man
that
I’ve
ever
known.
Just
saying.”
