  • Johnny Depp was confronted on cross-examination Thursday with a video of himself.

  • The video, which surfaced in 2016, shows him smashing up his kitchen and cursing at Amber Heard.

  • Depp said he “strayed” from his emotions but didn’t physically attack her.

Jurors in Johnny Depp’s trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard on Thursday watched a video showing Depp smashing his kitchen in a rage before pouring himself a big glass of wine.

In the video, which first surfaced in 2016 and was taken by Heard, Depp is seen kicking cabinets and yelling “motherfucker” in the kitchen of his West Hollywood home.

As Heard asks “what happened?” Depp grabs a glass out of a cabinet and smashes it closed, appearing to break a part of the door.

“Nothing happened this morning, you know that?” Heard says before more smashing can be heard off-screen.

Depp is seen pouring himself wine into the glass and telling Heard, “You want to see crazy? I’ll give you fucking crazy,” before he sees the camera and grabs it.

“You got this going? You sic that shit on me, motherfucker?” Depp asks before calling her an “ass” and Heard appears to laugh.

The trial, held in Fairfax, Virginia, is over a lawsuit Depp brought against Heard in March 2019. He alleged she defamed him by describing herself as a victim of domestic violence. She denied the allegations and accused Depp of often physically abusing her while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Depp lost a trial for a case he brought in the UK against a British tabloid that called him a “wife beater” based on Heard’s allegations.

The video was posted on social media by Law & Crime, which has been livestreaming the trial in full on YouTube.

After showing the video, Heard’s lawyer Ben Rottenborn asked Depp whether he poured himself a “megapint of wine.”

“A megapint?” Depp asked in a tone of disbelief to titters in the courtroom. “I poured myself a large glass of wine. I thought it necessary.”

A moment later, Rottenborn pointed to testimony from Depp’s trial in London in which Depp described it as a “mega pint.”

Rottenborn didn’t offer a date for when the video was taken, and Depp said he didn’t recall why he was upset with Heard.

When asked whether his behavior in the clip was in line with the image of a “Southern gentleman” that others in the trial had depicted Depp as, the actor said he “strayed” from control over his emotions.

“I don’t know about anyone else, but I have had experiences in my life where one does stray from complete control over their emotions at times, and that is a very normal primal thing to do,” Depp said.

Depp added that he did not physically attack Heard.

“I did assault a couple of cabinets, yes,” he said.

Depp also expressed skepticism that Heard felt threatened during the encounter.

“I did not try to intimidate Ms. Heard,” he said. “If she was intimidated, why was she filming? If she was scared to death, why didn’t she leave?”
