Amber Heard has described having to use makeup to cover up her injuries inflicted by Johnny Depp while appearing on James Corden’s chat show.
The actress said she thought she was going to die when she claims Depp headbutted and tried to suffocate her with a pillow.
The next evening in December 2015, she appeared on The Late Late Show to promote her film The Danish Girl, and said she had to hide her cuts and bruises.

She told the court in her blockbuster defamation trial that her make-up team had to work around the wounds and apply ‘super heavy, red matte lipstick’ to hide her bloodied lip.
She said: ‘I got worried that I wouldn’t be able to hide the bruising and swelling. I iced it all night and the next day checked in the mirror to see if I could get away with it, meaning hiding it, so I could make an appearance.
‘I gambled and thought maybe I could pull it off, I had my hair and makeup team come. They worked around it, meaning worked around the lesions on my head with the hair spray because that stings.
‘They worked around the bruising by covering it with heavy makeup, heavier makeup than normal bruise covering makeup.
‘I remember my lip was still bleeding and swollen so we did this really thick super heavy matte red lipstick and I remember very well at the time that we had no choice in color, and that was one of my favorite colors to wear
‘On this occasion we had no choice because we had to hide my busted lip.
She added: ‘I did what I always did: I told people that I had an accident.’
Describing the previous night’s violence, Heard told the jury yesterday how Depp repeatedly punched her head and dragged her by the hair.
She said that he told her: ‘You really want to go now, tough guy’ before punching her.
She said: ‘I look him right in the eyes. It was a really still moment.’
‘(He said) you want to go again, tough guy. I looked right up at his face, he balled up his fists, leaned back and headbutted me square in the nose.
Heard claimed that during the fight in December 2015 Depp headbutted her and beat her so badly she thought she would die. These photos of Heard’s bruised face were submitted into evidence
She said: ‘He had his hand on the back of my hair and was yanking me down and hit me in the face with this cast.’ Heard’s scalp with missing hair is shown
‘Instantly (I felt) searing pain, It’s one of the few memories I have of physical pain, searing pain’.
Depp dragged Heard by the hair into a neighboring apartment, leaving chunks lying all over the floor, she said.
He got on top of her with her face in a pillow and was repeatedly beating her.
Heard said: ‘He’s trying to hold me with his knee on my back and he’s punching me with a closed fist repeatedly.
‘I remember the sound of Johnny’s voice he got next to my ear and he was screaming over and over again I f**king hate you, I f**king hate you over and over. F**king hate you. Pounding the back of my head with his fist.
‘I could hear myself scream until I couldn’t hear myself any more I could just hear him say he was going to kill me and he sounded like an animal in pain when he was saying he f**king hated me.
‘He sounded different like he was in agony. He just hit me over and over and over again. I got really still and it felt in my body quiet.
‘I thought this is how I die, he’s going to kill me now. He’s going to kill me and he won’t even have realized it.
Amber Heard broke down on the stand Thursday as she detailed how Johnny Depp sexually assaulter her with a liquor bottle in March 2015 in Australia at their rented home

‘I couldn’t breathe. I remember trying to scream and I couldn’t scream suffocating in this pillow top with him holding me down punching me. I don’t have any memory after that until I woke up.’
Heard also broke down on an emotional day on the stand as she detailed how Depp sexually assaulted her with a liquor bottle during emotional testimony that the actor’s defense team labeled the ‘performance of her life.’
The alleged assault took place in March 2015 in Australia at their rented home he was living in while filming Pirates of the Caribbean 5.
This is the same incident that saw Depp’s finger severed. He claimed Heard threw a liquor bottle which severed it. Heard testified that she did not witness Depp’s fingertip being cut off.
‘At some point he’s on top of me, screaming I f**king hate you, you ruined my f**king life,’ Heard testified as she sobbed uncontrollably. ‘I’m on the countertop, he had me by the neck and was on top of me.
‘I’m looking in his eyes and I don’t see him any more. It wasn’t him, it was black. I haven’t been so scared in my life. He was looking at me. I was trying to get through to him, to say in some way it was me. Trying to get through to Johnny.
‘At some point he’s on top of me, screaming I f**king hate you, you ruined my f**king life,’ Heard testified as she sobbed uncontrollably. ‘I’m on the countertop, he had me by the neck and was on top of me’
‘My head was bashing against the back of the bar and I couldn’t breathe. I remember trying to get up to tell him he was really hurting me. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t get through to him. I couldn’t get up.’
At this point, Heard became overwhelmed with emotion on the stand. ‘Next thing I remember I was bent over backwards on the bar, I was staring at the blue light. My back was on the countertop. I thought he was punching me. I felt this pressure on my pubic bone and I could feel his arm moving. It looked like he was punching me. I could just feel this pressure.
‘I don’t remember what I said, I just remember being really still, not wanting to move. I remember looking around the room, looking at all the broken bottles, broken glass and I remember not wanting to move because I didn’t know if it was broken, I didn’t know if the bottle that he had inside me was broken.
‘I couldn’t feel it, I didn’t feel pain, I didn’t feel anything.
‘I saw so much broken glass I didn’t know if he would know if it was broken or not and I remember thinking please go I hope it’s not broken. I don’t know how that ended. I don’t know how I got off the countertop.
‘I just remember being in the bathroom. I remember retching, the sound my voice was making. I lost control of my bladder. I remember just retching, there was blood on the floor.’
Depp’s team claimed the actress’ tales of abuse have evolved with ‘new and convenient details’ and plan on exposing her lies on cross-examination.
