As you may know, Jaime appeared on Johnny Depp’s film “Blow”, playing his daughter. And now she has talked with US weekly about Johnny and Amber Heard’s divorce. Read out below the full article.
Jaime King opened up about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s tumultuous split during an interview with Us Weekly at the OCRF Super Saturday event in Santa Monica on Saturday, June 11.
The Hart of Dixie actress, 37, who often discusses women’s rights and is a survivor of child abuse, discussed what she calls a “deeply painful situation.”
“It makes me really emotional,” King tells Us. “Listen, I love Johnny Depp. One of my very first movies he played my father. I learned so much from him. I have so much respect for him. He is one of the most loving, kind, generous, attentive, brilliant men that I’ve ever met.”
The model briefly appeared in the 2001 film Blow alongside Depp, 53, playing his daughter.
“I would have scenes that he wasn’t even in and he wouldn’t even leave,” King says. “He would just stay to watch. He would rehearse with me. There was so much that I learned from him. He was an incredible mentor. Being able to work with someone like that at the beginning of my career really taught me what it meant to be a true professional and a true artist.”
The Sin City actress also praised the Alice Through the Looking Glass actor’s estranged wife, Heard, 30. “I love Amber. I think that she’s an incredible bright light. She’s a beautiful human being.”
As for the pair’s explosive divorce, King made it clear that Heard’s allegations of abuse against Depp shouldn’t be a source of entertainment.
“Bottom line, what bothers me the most is that people are being hurt on both sides,” she explains. “It is a deeply painful situation and people are treating it as if it’s entertainment, and it’s not f‑‑king funny. And it’s not entertaining.”
The actress, who is married to Kyle Newman and is mom of sons James, 2, and Leo, 10 months, continues, “It’s all hearsay. It’s all he said, she said. Frankly, it’s not about sides because we cannot take sides in a situation that we’re not there for, bottom line. It’s about loving and supporting each person by saying, ‘Give them their privacy let them work it out.’ Also, bring awareness to any sort of domestic violence because no matter what happened or did not happen, that is really not important.”
Earlier this year, King bravely revealed on social media that she is a survivor of child abuse. Inspired by Lady Gaga’s powerful 2016 Academy Awards performance of “Til It Happens to You,” King tweeted in February, “Thank you @ladygaga – I finally felt a true healing from years of abuse as a minor in the industry. Time to be brave.”
As previously reported, Depp and Heard are currently in the midst of a bitter divorce. She has accused him of being physically abusive on multiple occasions and was granted a temporary restraining order last month. The actor has repeatedly denied the allegations.
