Amber Heard was spotted out and about for the first time since losing in ex-husband Johnny Depp’s defamation case against her earlier this month.
Heard, 36, was photographed getting off a private jet and being ushered into a chauffeured luxury SUV at an airfield in Washington, D.C., Friday, TMZ reported.
The “Aquaman” actress, who wore a black blouse and slacks, traveled with at least four companions, including her sister Whitney Henriquez, according to the outlet.
Heard was in New York City for meetings earlier in the day and caught a flight from New Jersey to Washington, D.C., before returning to Virginia, the report said.
Heard’s outing comes more than a week after her lawyer Elaine Bredehoft claimed that the actress cannot afford to pay the roughly $10 million judgment she owes Depp.
Heard expressed her disappointment with the Virginia jury’s verdict and called it a “setback” for women in her first post-trial statement.
“The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence and sway of my ex-husband,” she wrote.
“I’m even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women,” the actress continued. “It is a setback. It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It sets back the idea that violence against women is to be taken seriously.”
Heard made similar comments in response to a message Depp shared for his supporters via TikTok Tuesday.
“To all of my most treasured, loyal and unwavering supporters,” Depp wrote in his first TikTok post. “We’ve been everywhere together, we have seen everything together. We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared. And now, we will all move forward together.”
In a statement to People, a spokesperson for Heard said, “As Johnny Depp says he’s ‘moving forward,’ women’s rights are moving backward. The verdict’s message to victims of domestic violence is … be afraid to stand up and speak out.”
But Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez denied claims that the verdict was a blow or setback to the Me Too movement.
“We encourage any victim to come forward. Domestic violence doesn’t have a gender,” Vasquez said during a recent appearance on “Good Morning America.”
Heard plans to appeal the verdict, her lawyer said.
