Johnny Depp and Amber Heard‘s marriage was short-lived, and the pair are currently in the midst of a highly contentious civil trial where Depp is suing Heard for an op-ed she wrote that suggests he abused her during their marriage.
During Heard’s testimony in court, she discussed the beginning of their relationship together at length, from the early days when they would spend days on end in one of the many homes Depp owned, which Heard described as “like magic.”
Heard and Depp met did not start dating until 2012, thought they met earlier than that on the set of the film The Rum Diary. Though the film, based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel of the same name, wasn’t a huge box office success, there’s been renewed interest in it as a result of their trial. If you’re wondering where to watch The Rum Diary, the good thing is that it’s widely available to stream.
