Unlike her ex-husband Johnny Depp, who almost immediately lost all big gigs after the actress' 2018 op-ed in The Washington Post about domestic abuse, Heard still managed to keep her role.

Amber Heard revealed that her role in the Aquaman sequel was significantly reduced in wake of the domestic abuse claims that she and her ex-spouse Johnny Depp continue to exchange.

"I fought really hard to stay in the film," Heard testified on Monday. "I was given a script and was given new versions of the script. They basically took a bunch out of my role."

According to the actress, her character has lost all action scenes in the new version of the script. Still, Heard was ultimately able to film in 'Aquaman 2', despite her role being "very pared down".

Heard's testimony did not impress social media users too much, especially in the wake of Depp being booted from 'Fantastic Beasts' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean' following the accusations of domestic abuse.

Meanwhile, the petition to remove Heard from the Aquaman sequel entirely has passed 4.1 million signatures.

The Depp v Heard trial resumed on Monday after a week-long hiatus, with Heard taking the stand to be questioned by her lawyers. She is then set to undergo cross-examination by Depp's legal team.

The actor sued Heard for defaming him following the 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she portrayed herself as a victim of domestic abuse. She never directly named him, but Depp's attorneys argue it was the 2018 article that effectively ruined the actor's career. While Depp demands $50 million, Heard countersued and requested twice as much.
