Amber Heard Trial Testimony Draws Comparisons to 'Twilight' Kristen Stewart

Amber Heard finally had her chance to speak on day 14 of the Johnny Depp defamation trial, but her testimony is drawing unfavorable comparisons to Kristen Stewart in Twilight.

Heard took the stand for the first time on Wednesday as Depp's legal team rested their case. She recalled alleged incidents of abuse from her marriage to Depp in an emotional testimony which once again got many people talking online. Throughout Heard's time on the stand, Depp appeared to never look at her which also instigated a debate across social media.

Heard's tearful testimony was widely discussed online, but some have compared her "performance" to that of Bella Swan (Stewart) in the Twilight movies.

TikTok user @beeyoung92 produced a comparison video which includes clips of Heard in the trial and Bella Swan in Twilight. The caption onscreen reads: "I thought I'd seen these scenes before today's trial."

The comment section underneath this video praised the link. @Livilee4 said: "Oh my god! Literally said the same thing she acts like Kirsten Stewart in Twilight," while @immaboutthatvibe said: "Kristen Stewart did it better."

The link between Heard and Stewart continued over on Twitter too, with many users making the same comparisons.

"The acting by Kristen Stewart in Twilight is better than Amber Heard on the stand," wrote @MjInnocent_. Another user, @Tallie_Anne, said: "Amber Heard on stand reminds me so much of how Kristen Stewart acted in Twilight."

@Chaarrlx claimed: "Amber Heard had 100 percent been watching Twilight," while @Leah247 also composed another short video clip comparing the mannerisms of the two.

During her testimony, Heard was asked about the first time Depp ever hit her. She recalled the event and got emotional while doing so. After laughing at Depp's "Wino" tattoo, Depp allegedly slapped her "across the face."

"I laughed. Because I didn't know what else to do. I thought, 'This must be a joke.'" Heard said Depp continued to hit her twice more, the third time hitting her "hard."

Heard also recalled a moment whilst away doing "laughy" drugs with friends, when Depp got jealous of Heard with another woman. Once they got back in their private area she described how he gave her a "cavity search" looking for cocaine.

"He ripped my dress. The strap top part of my dress," she said. "I just stood there staring at the stupid light, I didn't know what to do."

While Depp has a strong following online, many people have come out in support of his ex-wife by starting the hashtag #IStandWithAmberHeard.
