- Amber Heard recently lost a defamation lawsuit brought on by her ex-husband Johnny Depp.
- The actress recently sat down for a tell-all interview with NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie.
- One viral clip sees Heard suggest Depp convinced people that Edward Scissorhands was real.
During her first post-trial-loss interview with NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie, actress Amber Heard — who was ordered to pay her ex-husband Johnny Depp $15 million as a result of the court ruling in Depp’s favor — implied that Depp is such a good actor that he convinced people that the main character from Edward Scissorhands actually had scissors for hands.
Heard’s comments about Tim Burton’s famed 1990 fantasy film came after Guthrie mentioned how Depp’s lawyer called her testimony the “performance of a lifetime” and said she was acting. In response, a frustrated Heard said “Says the lawyer for the man convinced the world he had scissors for fingers?”

Needless to say, the internet was quite befuddled by Heard’s logic, as it’s safe to assume that no one ever actually believed that Edward Scissorhands was a real person with real scissors for real hands.

Ironically, Edward Scissorhands is a movie that encourages tolerance and compassion instead of assuming a shy, traumatized man is dangerous instead of just weird. It's a fantastic film and Tim Burton at his visual best! If you haven't seen it, give it a watch. https://t.co/Wvlhu7Aacr

Dear Amber Heard, I’m not sure you truly understand a few important things.
1) Edward Scissorhands was a character Johnny played. I don’t believe he wore those scissors to court.

She is implying the jury saw Johnny Depp and Edward Scissorhands synonymously

Interesting that she mentioned Edward Scissorhands because what she did to Johnny is exactly what happened to Edward. He was falsely accused of an assault when in reality he left the room. He was falsely accused of attacking Kevin when he actually saved his life.

Amber Heard actually said this. “The man who convinced the world he had scissors for fingers”. Are there people out there who believed Johnny Depp actually had scissors for fingers? Or does everyone. And I mean. EVERYONE know that Edward Scissorhands was just a movie. 🥴 pic.twitter.com/zctyRKl7l3

Needless to say, Heard’s comments in the aftermath of the trial certainly haven’t helped her standing in the court of public opinion — in the weeks since the verdict, a petition to have her removed from Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom surpassed 4.5 million signatures.
The calls for Heard’s removal from the film have become so widespread, in fact, that the studio sources have had to leak out statements confirming that she remains a part of the billion-dollar-grossing franchise.
