Did Amber Heard Copy 'The Talented Mr Ripley' Lines in Her Testimony? Here's a Fact Check

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation case trial has unfolded under the public eye, with every little detail from either of the actors’ testimonies in court going viral and coming under scrutiny. 

The trial has been highly polarising, with the general public pronouncing guilt or innocence upon either Depp or Heard, dividing into two camps. 

Some lines of Heard’s testimony, social media users have claimed, have been “copied" verbatim from the movie “The Talented Mr Ripley".

This, however, is not the case. Though some part of Heard’s testimony sounds similar in meaning to the viral lines from the movie, it has not been “lifted" from the film as has been alleged. 

Newsweek, as well as other news organisations, in their fact-check analyses came to the same conclusion.

A Twitter user shared a comparison between Amber Heard’s testimony and the dialogue spoken by Gwyneth Paltrow to Matt Damon in The Talented Mr Ripley. 

The two are similar in nature and tone, but Heard cannot be said to have “copied" the dialogue from the film.

A Twitter user pointed out how the same manner of speaking could be adopted by anyone in an abusive relationship, writing, 

“you do realize that literally anyone who has been in a relationship like hers has likely described their partner in a similar way, right?"
