After Amber Heard’s defamation suit against her ex-husband Johnny Depp was dismissed, Mickey Rourke didn’t hold back while expressing his thoughts on the actress.
In a new interview with Piers Morgan on Tuesday, July 12, The Wrestler actor referred to Amber, 36, as a “money digger.” After a similar incident, Mickey, 69, felt that he could identify with Johnny, 59.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star won his trial against Amber, and when asked how he felt about it, Mickey revealed that it made him feel a connection to his co-star from Once Upon A Time In Mexico.
In spite of the fact that I’ve known Johnny for a long time, I don’t really know him as a person.” All I can say is that once, I was held responsible for something I had nothing to do with.
“It cost me a few years of work in the movie industry,” he stated. “It tarnished my reputation, and the truth eventually came out, but the truth came out after I lost movies and employment.”
Mickey Rourke had a less-than-flattering name for the Aquaman actress after describing why he felt like Johnny. I felt sorry for the person who was being attacked by a gold digger, he remarked. Inquired whether or not Amber was a gold digger, the actor said, “Absolutely,” when Piers asked.
When Amber’s legal team argued that the wrong juror had been placed in the trial, they requested a mistrial, and Amber has now formally indicated that she intends to appeal the conviction. Despite the jury’s decision to give Johnny $10 million and Amber $2 million, the legal battle may not be done just yet.
Piers Morgan When it comes to projects since the trial finished, Johnny has returned to work on a number of them, including a new film where he was sighted in Paris with a fresh haircut. With a tour scheduled for 2023 and the release of a new record with Jeff Beck on Friday, July 15, he’s also been working on music.
