Users on social networks have affirmed in both English and Spanish since May 4 that Heard copied a part of “The Talented Mr. Ripley” literally, when comparing a supposed fragment of the trial with the original script of the American film, which was released in 1999.
The suspense film is performed Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow Y Jude Lawwho lead a murky relationship that leads to crime and deception.
Heard allegedly copies verbatim a paragraph from the character Marge Sherwood (Gwyneth Paltrow) that says: “The thing with Dickie…it’s like the sun is shining on you, and it’s glorious. And then he forgets about you and he’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.”
The photos shared by Internet users, which have received tens of thousands of reactions, show two columns: one titled Amber Heard and the other The Talented Mr. Ripley with the same text in both, as proof that Heard only changed Dickie’s name to Johnny (Depp) in his statement.

ACTS: A review of Heard’s court appearance transcripts, which are about 7 hours long and available at Youtubeshows that he does not mention at any time the phrases attributed to him.
Review of appearances
Several media outlets are uploading the full videos of Depp and Heard’s hearings to YouTube. EFE Verifies verified with the transcripts available on the platform that there is no trace that the actress literally pronounced the phrases attributed to her.
About 30 minutes after beginning her first statement, on Wednesday, May 4, on the 14th day of the trial, the defendant explains how the romance with Depp began hidden from public opinion and affirms that she felt “the most beautiful person in the world.” world”, and that the actor made her feel “seen”, as if “it were worth a million dollars”.
You know, it was, it was, it was beautiful, it was… I felt like this man knew me and saw me in a way that no one else had, I felt like he understood me, I felt like he understood where I was coming from, I felt like when I was around Johnny I I felt like the most beautiful person in the world, you know, it made me feel seen, it made me feel like a million dollars,” she says.

Some users share these images to also relate them to the movie “The Talented Mr. Ripley”, but Heard’s story is far from being an exact copy of the script.
First time they face justice
It is the first time that the two celebrities have faced each other in court: in the trial held in 2020 in London, and which Depp lost, the actress attended as a witness, since the accusation was against the British newspaper The Sun for an article that described the actor as an “aggressor of women”.
If in the first place it was Depp’s lawyers who portrayed Heard as the person who held a position of abuse in the relationship, now it is the defense of the actress who tries to counteract this image with the version of her witnesses and experts.
Depp demands compensation of 50 million dollars due to the publication of an article in The Washington Post in 2018, after her divorce, in which she claimed to have suffered “domestic abuse”.
