Model Ireland Baldwin, 26, daughter of actor Alec Baldwin, called Heard a “terrible person” in Instagram stories during the trial in April. “The thing is, I know women who are just like that.

Comedian Joe Rogan condemned Heard on his popular podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience”, saying she is a “crazy lady” and that her allegations “are not true”. “I’m watching this trial and, like, it’s a cautionary tale about believing bullshit, forming a narrative in her head like, ‘We’re rebels together,'” she said.

Actor Bill Burr admitted in early May that he didn’t see the Depp-Heard trial because he’s “too much of a Johnny Depp fan” to watch it, but said he thinks people should apologize to the “Edward Scissorhands” star. ” if Heard loses.

Jennifer Aniston’s support for Depp has been more nuanced than that of other celebrities. According to RadarOnline, the actress started following Depp after the trial had already started, and he reportedly returned the gesture recently.

Actress Penelope Cruz, 45, and Winona Ryder, 48, wrote court statements defending the actor. Penelope said she has known Depp since she was 19 and spent six months of her pregnancy with the actor, who was kind and protective.

Depp’s ex-girlfriend, Winona was one of the first people who came to the actor’s defense as soon as the allegations against him began. The actress said he “has never been violent or abusive to anyone” in a witness statement to support her defense in her ongoing defamation lawsuit.

On Heard’s side is comedian and broadcaster Howard Stern, who criticized Depp for exaggerating the trial. “The reason he wanted this — to be televised — is because that’s what narcissists do,” Stern said on his SiriusXM radio show, in an excerpt reproduced by Variety. “They think they can get rid of anything,” he added.

Depp’s ex-girlfriend, actress Ellen Barkin, 68, will testify on Heard’s behalf because she previously claimed the actor was abusive to her when they dated. She said that Depp once threw a bottle of wine into a hotel room once because he got jealous and angry. He claimed that his ex held a grudge and his claims were “untrue”.
