Most celebrities remain silent during the courtroom showdown between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard amid their ongoing libel trial, but a select few have chosen sides.
Perhaps the majority are too tired of taking the heat from the public – like Drew Barrymore did when she ‘shed light’ on her talk show allegations and then had to backtrack.
“It’s, like, one layer of madness — it’s a seven-layer dip of madness,” the ‘Never Been Kissed’ star previously said on ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’ of the affair.
Depp, 58, is suing Heard, 36, over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed she wrote in which she called herself a victim of sexual violence.

Chris Rock took the stage during the UK leg of his ‘Ego Death’ world tour on May 12 and reportedly discussed Depp’s allegations that Heard left poop on his bed.
According to UK digital publisher LADBible, the comic told the crowd, “Believe all women, believe all women…except Amber Heard…”
He then added – apparently believing Depp’s claims – “What the hell is she on? She shits in her bed! She’s fine, but she’s not fine.
Heard denied defecating on her ex’s bed.
Ireland Baldwin called Heard a “terrible person” on an Instagram Story amid the trial.
“The thing is, I know women who are exactly like that,” the eldest Alec Baldwin said in late April.
“They’re manipulative and cold and they use their very femininity to play the victim and turn the world against man because we live in a society where it’s cool to say men are all the worst and blah blah- kitty blah.”
Joe Rogan condemned Heard on his popular podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” saying she’s a “crazy person” and her allegations are “not true.”
“I watch this trial, and, like, it’s a cautionary tale about believing in bulls, forming a narrative in your head like, ‘We’re rebels together,'” he told his millions. of listeners.
“People who are just manipulative and full of bullshit like that? [Comedian] Doug Stanhope knows her. Stanhope’s Friends with Johnny Depp. He wrote something…like a little essay about how full of shit she is, and she threatened to sue him, and I think he must have taken it down eventually.
Bill Burr admitted in early May that he hadn’t necessarily seen the Depp-Heard trial because he was “too big a Johnny Depp fan” to watch it, but said he thinks people should to apologize to the ‘Edward Scissorhands’ star if Heard loses.
“From what I’ve seen, the guy is destroying,” the 52-year-old comedian said on the “Monday Morning Podcast,” according to Mediate.

Who is supporting Amber Heard:
Not as many celebrities came to Heard’s defense, but Howard Stern was quick to castigate Depp for his “overacting” during the trial.
The legendary radio host said on his SiriusXM show in late April: “The reason he wanted this to air – he wanted it to be televised [because] that’s what narcissists do.
“I think Johnny Depp is a big narcissist and what I mean by that is he was like, ‘I’m going to put this on TV and because I’m so persuasive and because I’m so smart, i’m such a wonderful guy. .’”
Stern continued, “If he’s not acting — I mean, he’s exaggerating so much because he’s writing his own material as he goes. You know, I have to tell you he’s wrong. He shouldn’t put this on TV in any form.
Ellen Barkin is about to show her support for Heard where it matters most – in court.
The ‘Big Easy’ actress, 68, will take the stand to testify on Heard’s behalf because she previously alleged that Depp abused her when they were dating.
Barkin also released a statement during Depp’s lawsuit against The Sun in 2020, claiming the actor once threw a bottle of wine in a hotel room and became jealous and angry.
However, Depp claimed his ex held a grudge and that his allegations were “false”.
Barkin and Depp briefly met in 1994.
