Amber Heard flinches as Johnny Depp walks towards her in court

Amber Heard appeared to flinch as Johnny Depp walked towards her in court on Thursday before a lunch break in their tense libel trial.

The ‘Aquaman’ actress stepped down from her second day on the stand just as the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star left the Virginia courtroom in a now viral video tweeted by a Law&Crime Network producer.

At first, Heard looked down and didn’t seem to notice Depp had risen from his seat, but once she saw him approaching a few feet ahead of her, she seemingly backed away with a frightened expression on her face. his face.

The ‘Adderall Diaries’ star then backed into a corner as a guard stepped between the exes and held out his hand, signaling the ‘Edward Scissorhands’ actor not to approach.

Depp didn’t seem to mind the near-snap, shrugging and even letting out what sounded like a chuckle.
