Bogota. The actress Amber Heard did not plagiarize a fragment of the script of the film “The Talented Mr. Ripley” in her first appearance in the trial for defamation that confronts her ex-husband, also an actor Johnny Depp, as evidenced by the recordings of the process, in where there is no trace of those lines.
Users on social networks have stated in both English and Spanish since May 4 that Heard copied a part of “The Talented Mr. Ripley” literallywhen comparing an alleged fragment of the trial with the original script of the American film, which was released in 1999.

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 is very, very cold… When you have his attention, you feel like you are the only person in the world, that is why everyone loves him so much”.
The photographs 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 the Dickie’s name to Johnny (Depp) in his statement.

Not so talented: Amber Heard’s attempt to immortalize Johnny Depp as ‘Dickie’ from ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ is evidence that her testimony is a fantasy invention worthy of an audition for the movie itself. #johnnydepp #amberheard #JohnnyDeppVsAmberHeardTrial #amberjohnny pic.twitter.com/Zt6U0TAjoQ

Review of appearances

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”.
