The court dispute between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, which has been the subject of a media circus, is finally set to conclude this week.
On Monday, a new expert witness took the stand to analyze the actress’s career trajectory, which led to some conjecture on social media about Heard’s film roles.
Entertainment consultant Kathryn Arnold compared Heard’s career to that of Ana de Armas during her testimony.
An online video claimed that Amber Heard played a major role in the 2017 picture “Blade Runner 2049.”
In court on Monday, an entertainment analyst testified on Amber Heard’s career trajectory and concluded that the negative publicity surrounding her legal fights had impacted her career, drawing comparisons to several other movie stars including Ana de Armas.
Arnold claimed that Heard’s career success would be on par with that of famous names like Zendaya, Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, and Ana de Armas if not for Depp’s alleged “smear campaign” against her.
Depp’s attorney Wayne Dennison remarked during her questioning that Armas’ part in Blade Runner 2049 was as a “gigantic naked billboard,” but many online assumed he was referring to Heard.
Arnold was asked by Depp’s attorney if she was aware of Armas’ involvement in the film, and she said, “It was years ago, I don’t recall precisely what role she had but she was in that movie, and from there, her agency should have leveraged that to get her more pictures.”
You don’t realize that her main part in the movie is a giant naked billboard?” Dennison continued.
Several Twitter users, it seems, assumed that Dennison was referring to Heard’s character in the film when he mentioned the “gigantic nude billboard” role.
Currently, the YouTube video “Johnny Depp’s Lawyer BRUTALLY mocks Amber Heard’s Role in Blade Runner 2049” has over 800,000 views.
One Twitter user, @justbrooke7, posted a video of the event and captioned it: “Counsel for Depp Discusses Amber’s Blade Runner Role. Savage.”
Meanwhile, another commented with a still image from the movie showing a hologram of a female character, saying: “Basically, Amber had one cameo in Blade Runner, and it was a nude one. The lawyer was correct.”
Several other websites have used the image alongside a photo of Amber Heard, furthering the impression that this is the “billboard” shot that actually features the actress.
The information on Amber Heard’s IMDB page proves that she did not play a role in Blade Runner 2049; instead, Johnny Depp’s attorney Wayne Dennison was interviewing entertainment industry consultant Kathryn Arnold about Ana de Armas.
In the whole footage of the trial that day, Depp’s lawyer mentions De Armas, who co-starred with Ryan Gosling as the character Joi in the 2017 sci-fi version.
In addition to her role as the artificial love interest of the film’s protagonist and frequent scenes opposite Ryan Gosling, her character was a so-called “Digital Companion” who was featured on billboards.
Kathryn Arnold is questioned by Johnny Depp’s lawyer about her alleged ignorance of Amber Heard’s filmography.
Wayne Dennison continued to test her knowledge of the aforementioned performers, and it became clear that she was unfamiliar with Patrick Wilson, who costarred with Amber Heard in Aquaman. In addition, she hadn’t seen the one scene in Blade Runner 2049 in which Heard appeared on a billboard.
Arnold said that she did not recall the film well enough to recall her precise role.
If what Dennison says is true, Heard’s part in the sci-fi flick was negligible at best. A slew of A-listers, including Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, and Dave Bautista, populated the action flick’s ensemble cast.
The film took home two Oscars in 2018 for cinematography and visual effects. It was nominated for and won a BAFTA.
The lawyers for Heard have brought up Ana de Armas before. Elaine Bredehoft, the attorney for the latter, angered internet users by drawing parallels between Heard and the Cuban actress.
Users of the World Wide Web felt it offensive that Herad was being likened to the famous actress. This later group has starred in such box office successes as No Time to Die, Deep Water, and Knives Out.
