of a report from Australian gossip site Poptopic, alleging that Depp, 59, is hammering out $301 million deal with Disney to appear in the sixth pirate movie. The media outlet attributed the intel to an industry insider. Depp’s legal team argued at his defamation trial against Amber Heard that he was dropped from the franchise after his ex-wife penned a 2018 Washington Post op-ed, calling herself a victim of domestic abuse.During Depp’s cross-examination, Heard’s lawyer Ben Rottenborn confronted the actor with a statement he had made to the press.“If Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, nothing on this earth would get you to go back and work with Disney on a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ film, correct?” asked Rottenborn, referring to the interview.“That is true,” he replied.

I had listened to weeks of testimony insinuating that — or saying quite directly — that I’m a terrible actress.“So I’m a bit confused how I could be both,” she said snapped in a teaser of the interview released Tuesday.Heard only mustered backhanded praise when Guthrie bluntly asked her if she thought she lost because her ex-husband “just had better lawyers” than her.“I will say his lawyers did certainly a better job of distracting the jury from the real issues,” the actress replied, without ever directly naming Vasquez or her colleague, Benjamin Chew.Vasquez’s winning performance during the explosive six-week trial made her an unexpected star as well as a newly promoted partner in her firm.She had both opened and closed her case by suggesting that the actress would merely be performing on the stand.“She has been living and breathing this lie for years now, and she has been preparing to give the performance of her life in this trial,” Vasquez said during opening statements in April.Then in closing arguments late last month, she told the court, “She came into this
