The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial has a lot of older interviews making a reappearance. However, one, in particular, has viewers terrified to see how quickly Heard changes her expression to one that commenters refer to as “scary as hell.” Heard has a certain charm in her interview footage, but Depp fans are quick to call out fluctuations in her energy.

TheCelebFactory YouTube channel shared an interview with Heard at the London premiere of The Rum Diary. The interviewer asked the actor about her experiences on the set, including how it relates back to her personal life. Heard joined Depp in the cast, so they inquired about what it was like to work with him.

“He’s such a pleasure to work with,” Heard responded. “He’s even better than I could have imagined him to be, which is saying something.”

TheCelebFactory asked Heard if Depp was funny on the set and how he conducted himself.

“He is,” Heard said. “I noticed when I got to set, everybody smiles when he walks on the set, so I know it’s a good sign. He looks everyone in the eye and takes time with everybody and I think that’s special. He’s a special human being.”

Amber Heard interview expression change has Johnny Depp fans calling it ‘scary as hell’

Depp fans instantly caught a “scary as hell” expression change after TheCelebFactory asked Heard about her experiences working with him. She had a bright smile on her face, but her expression instantly changed to a much more serious demeanor with an intense stare.

Heard kept a serious look on her face while the interviewer stumbled over their words a bit in their next question. They noted that The Rum Diary is pure excess and wanted to ask if she had any guilty pleasures.

“Ooo,” Heard said. “You know what, I have a lot of guilty pleasures, but none of which I will tell you … I go full out on everything. (Laughs).”

One user wrote, “How she goes from smiling to straight face is mad scary.” Another commenter wrote, “OMG. Did you guys notice that look at 0:41? It’s scary as hell.”

‘Zombieland’ Fans Slam Amber Heard for Allegedly Thinking She Was ‘Too Pretty’ for a Zombie Movie

Many of the comments under TheCelebFactory’s interview refer to Heard’s comments regarding Depp. She has nothing but positive remarks about his work ethic and his previous performances. However, this greatly differs from the testimony that the actor gave during the defamation trial.

Some Depp fans wrote “Justice for Johnny Depp” and note their condolences for the actor. Others acknowledged that this resurfaced interview didn’t age particularly well with current events.

Some commenters expressed that they enjoyed Heard’s work before Depp’s allegations and enjoyed how she carried herself in interviews. However, they don’t look at her the same after everything that took place in court.
