Johnny Depp had a list of nicknames for the men he accused Amber Heard of having affairs with, a court heard.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor, 57, had names for a number of big names, including Leonardo DiCaprio, who was “pumpkin-head”, Channing Tatum (potato-head) and “Jim Turd Sturgess”.
Heard, who denies cheating on Depp, accused him of being jealous and getting angry if she had sex scenes with a co-star.
She was giving her testimony at Depp’s libel trial against NGN over a 2018 article in The Sun in which he was branded a “wife beater” – which he strenuously denies.
The actress, 34, said she had to “justify” why she had to take on a movie role and it was worse if there was a sex scene.
Heard said: “[Depp] would insist every male actor was trying to sleep with me and/or that I had had an affair with them, that he’d spoken to people and knew all about it.
“He would try and catch me out by taking my phone or telling me someone had told him I was having an affair and act as if he had information proving it – when I really hadn’t.
“He accused me of having affairs with each of my co-stars, movie after movie: Eddie Redmayne, James Franco, Jim Sturgess, Kevin Costner, Liam Hemsworth, BillyBob Thornton, Channing Tatum; even women co-stars like Kelly Garner.
“He also accused me of having affairs with stars I auditioned with, like Leonardo DiCaprio.
“He would taunt me about it – especially when he was drunk or high.”
Heard claims that as their marriage went on his rules about her work became stricter.
She continued: “He demanded to know about any romantic scene in a film and complained about how people can watch me ‘get f**ked on camera’.
“He would even get himself copies of the scripts I was looking at, without asking me, to review them for himself.
“His rules got tighter every year we were together about what nudity or scenes were acceptable, wanting descriptions of every detail, every aspect of scenes and how they were covered, placing increasing restrictions on what I could and couldn’t do.
“I found myself making concessions and turning down work. My salary went down every year I was with him because of all the work I was missing. Meanwhile, he would insist I went on set with him when I wasn’t working. It was such a hassle to fight so I often went along. “
Lawyers for NGN are defending their case based on Heard’s 14 allegations of abuse, which include claims of bust-ups between 2013 and 2016.
