Johnny Depp accused ex Amber Heard of having affairs with stars such as “pumpkin-head” Leonardo DiCaprio and “potato-head” Channing Tatum — nicknames he would use to “taunt” the actress, the court heard Monday.
The “Aquaman” actress, 34, revealed that the “very jealous” actor considered nearly all of her male co-stars a “sexual threat” in a statement filed as part of his explosive libel case in London.
“He accused me of having affairs with each of my co-stars, movie after movie: Eddie Redmayne, James Franco, Jim Sturgess, Kevin Costner, Liam Hemsworth, Billy-Bob Thornton, Channing Tatum; even women co-stars like Kelli Garner,” she said.
She claimed that Depp, 57, also accused her of cheating on him with DiCaprio, whom she had auditioned with for a role.
“He would taunt me about it — especially when he was drunk or high — and had derogatory nicknames for every one of my male co-stars he considered a sexual threat,” she said in the statement.
“For example, Leonardo DiCaprio was ‘pumpkin-head,’ [‘Magic Mike XXL’ co-star] Channing Tatum was ‘potato-head’ and ‘Jim Turd Sturgess.’”
The court previously heard that Depp mocked Heard in text messages to his agent over an alleged affair with someone nicknamed “Mollusk,” believed to be Tesla founder Elon Musk.
Heard said Monday that Depp would tell her that he’d spoken to people who “knew all about” her supposed extramarital flings.
“He would try and catch me out by taking my phone or telling me someone had told him I was having an affair and act as if he had information proving it — when I really hadn’t,” she said in the statement.
Depp also “demanded” to know about romantic scenes in films and often made a fuss “about how people can watch me get f–ked on camera,” Heard claimed.
“His rules got tighter every year we were together about what nudity or scenes were acceptable, wanting descriptions of every detail, every aspect of scenes and how they were covered, placing increasing restrictions on what I could and couldn’t do,” she said.
The actress said she ultimately found herself turning down roles, and said her earning power plummeted every year she was with him.
In the written statement, Heard also accused her ex-husband of subjecting her to physical abuse as well as “extremely controlling and intimidating behavior.”
