Although there is no video evidence to support this claim, Heard allegedly quotes the character, Marge Sherwood (played by Paltrow) from the film, in which she said, “The thing is with Johnny (Dickie). . . it’s like the sun is shining on you, and it’s glorious, and then it forgets about you, and it’s very, very cold.

WHO TELLS THE TRUTH?
It’s no secret that the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard case has divided fans around the world. While some think Amber Heard may be a victim of domestic abuse, others suggest she’s “acting” under oath.
During Thursday’s proceedings, the tweeps accused Amber of “acting out” after a clip of her nearly crossing paths with Johnny Depp in the courtroom went viral.
Talk to People magazine, a spokesperson for Johnny Depp claimed that Amber Heard was delivering “the performance of a lifetime” during her review.
The rep added: ‘While Ms Heard’s stories have continued to develop new practical details, Mr Depp’s memories have remained exactly the same throughout the painful six years since his first allegations were made.
“His truth – the truth – is the same regardless of the environment in which it was presented.”
However, Amber Heard’s lawyer refuted the allegations, adding: “As evidenced by the statement just released, Mr. Depp’s libel suit is collapsing so quickly that his lawyers are going from prosecutor to persecutor.
“Mr. Depp’s behavior in this trial has been as pitiful as it was in their marriage.”
Amid all the back and forth between camps, media personality Piers Morgan reminded the tweeps that Johnny and Amber are seasoned actors.
