Amber Heard may have lost her big lawsuit against Johnny Depp, but she certainly managed to get a more graceful entrance into life after the trial than her ex-husband.
While Depp, 59, was celebrating with a curry house in Birmingham, England, closing so he could have a great meal with friends, Vidak For Congress spies saw Heard, 36, enjoying a quiet dinner in public in the Hamptons after her high-profile defeat in the courtroom.
Depp celebrated the judge’s $15 million award by donating $62,000 to a lavish dinner, champagne and cocktails at an Indian restaurant with friends including rock legend Jeff Beck on June 5, but Heard licked her wounds with a much more peaceful meal.
Nearby diners tell us they saw the “Aquaman” star—who took a small win with a $2 million win—at a Greek restaurant in Water Mill with her sister, Whitney Heard, and Whitney’s two children.
Amber, who was vilified on social media during the ordeal, doesn’t seem to hide from her Hollywood colleagues either, as the restaurant, Calissa, is a popular spot with Hamptons A-listers.
A fellow diner says, “It was good to see her alive again.”
The former spouses had sued each other for libel over comments made after their messy divorce in 2017. The judge ruled heavily in Depp’s favor on June 1, although the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star filed a separate but similar lawsuit last year. had lost to a newspaper in the UK.
Whitney stood by Amber, testifying at the trial and posting on Instagram after the verdict: “I’m still behind you, sissy.”
A sit-down interview with Amber about the trial will air on “Dateline” on Friday, with clips running throughout the week’s “Today” show.
She said in a teaser that aired Monday that she does not blame the jury for their verdict.
“I don’t blame them, I kind of get it,” she told Savannah Guthrie. “He’s a beloved character and people feel like they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.”
Amber previously called the outcome a “setback” for women.
Earlier this month, Depp was spotted looking disheveled as bodyguards helped him out of his hotel. A source told Vidak For Congress that his security team kept him safe and away from “large crowds” who wanted to catch a glimpse of the “Edward Scissorhands” star.
“Everywhere he goes, he is mobbed by fans,” said our insider.
Meanwhile, Depp’s attorney was spotted in New York City last week to celebrate the win and her promotion to a partner at her law firm.
