The 36-year-old Aquaman star opened up to NBC News' Savannah Guthrie about the highly-publicized trial and the verdict - which ruled in favor of Depp.

The six-week trial began after the 59-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean actor sued his ex-wife for comments made in her 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post.

On Wednesday, June 1, the seven jurors shared their verdict and found that Heard had defamed Depp on all three counts. They awarded her former husband - who she accused of physical and sexual abuse - over $10 million in damages.

The NBC host emphasized how Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez described Heard's testimony in the trial as "the performance of a lifetime". To which Heard replied: "Says the lawyer for the man who convinced the world he had scissors for fingers? I'm the performer?"

Watch her interview below:

"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," Heard added.

It didn't take long for users of the social media platform to comment on the comparisons, with many questioning what The Danish Girl actress meant by that statement.

One user joked: "Wait... did Amber think Depp had scissors for fingers? I think most people knew that was a movie, right?"

Another commented: "Hey, @realamberheard I don’t think #johnnydepp convinced anyone, let alone the world, of having scissors for fingers."

A third poked fun at Heard's statement by saying: "Johnny Depp also owns a chocolate factory and robbed a bunch of banks and heck he does own a barbershop."

A fourth user quipped: "Willy Wonka doesn’t matter to you?"

Elsewhere in the interview, the actress mentioned other characters Depp has played and said to Guthrie she was in a courtroom "packed full of Captain Jack Sparrow fans".

The interviewer asked her how that felt, and Heard responded by saying: "It was the most humiliating and horrible thing I’ve ever been through. I have never felt more removed from my own humanity," She went on to say that she felt "less than human".

The Pineapple Express actress also disclosed in her interview that Depp's lawyers did a "better job of distracting the jury from the real issues" throughout the defamation trial.

More of Heard's interview will be released on Friday (June 17) on Dateline NBC.
