Johnny Depp called Amber's co-stars Leo 'pumpkin head' DiCaprio, Channing 'potato head' Tatum and Jim 'turd' Sturgess

JOHNNY Depp had a scathing list of nicknames for Amber Heard's co-stars – including Leonardo "pumpkin head" DiCaprio, a court was told.

The "very jealous" actor would rename male and female stars who he considered a "sexual threat" using bizarre insults.

Titanic star DiCaprio became known as "pumpkin head", while Depp branded Channing Tatum "potato head" and Jim Sturgess "turd".

Depp also allegedly accused Heard of having affairs with a string of A-listers – including Eddie Redmayne, James Franco, Liam Hemsworth, Billy-Bob Thornton and Kelli Garner.

Heard made the sensational claim as she started her evidence against Depp at the high Court in London today.

The High Court heard today:

  • Amber claims Depp 'explicitly threatened to kill me many times'
  • She also said he would threaten to 'carve' her face up if she left him
  • The star accused Depp of branding her a 's**t' and 'fame hungry'
  • Heard claims the actor 'threatened to get some black brothers to rape her'
  • She also said he was on 'a huge list of prescribed medications'
  • The court was told her weight plummeted and she was 'scared all the time'
  • And Heard claims Depp boasted about knowing people who could break a leg 'real cheap'
  • She also alleges Depp 'knelt' on her back and hit the back of her head in a row in Tokyo over a pre-nup
  • Heard revealed she never felt more lonely than she did on her wedding night
  • Depp allegedly told her when referring to their relationship: 'The only way out of this is death'.
  • Heard also denied claims made by Depp she is a 'gold-digger'

She said: "I had to justify to him why I was doing any movie, and it was much worse if there was any kissing or a sex scene in it. He would try and catch me out by taking my phone or telling me someone had told him I was having an affair and act as if he had information proving it – when I really hadn't.

"He would taunt me about it – especially when he was drunk or high – and had derogatory nicknames for every one of my male co-stars he considered a sexual threat. For example, Leonardo DiCaprio was 'pumpkin-head', Channing Tatum was 'potato-head' and 'Jim Turd Sturgess'."

Heard also claimed "controlling" Depp would obsess about who she had previously slept with and said she felt forced to start turning work down.

The Aquaman star added: "He spoke possessively of me as 'my woman' and made comments that he wished he had found me before I had slept with anyone else, joking he would have locked me away at 14.

"He would obsess about how I dressed. If I wore a low-cut dress, then he would say things like 'my girl is not gonna dress like a whore'.

"Over time, I stopped wearing revealing dresses for red carpet events: it just wasn't worth the verbal and psychological abuse."

The court heard today how Depp threatened to get some "black brothers" to rape Amber Heard during a violent private jet row.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star allegedly made a string of graphic remarks to the actress as they travelled between Boston and LA in 2014.

He then kicked Heard "hard in the back" as he accused her of having an affair with her co-star James Franco, it was said.

In her witness statement, Heard said: "Johnny sat in front of me on one of the seats opposite.

"I was in freeze mode. I could see he was mad and drunk and high on drugs. I started by trying not to provoke him – I knew there was nothing I could do to placate him.

“At one point, I got up to move elsewhere on the plane and he said ‘are you f***ing walking away from me?’ and he kicked me hard in the back.

“I fell to my hands and knees, mortified. I wouldn’t look at him. He was screaming at me, taunting me, saying something like ‘James Franco f***er, f***ing look at me’.

“He was still drinking heavily and kept on verbally insulting me, trying to get my attention.

“He kept verbally abusing me, saying things like ‘when we land, I can call some black brothers who can f*** you if you’re so desperate for it’.

“I didn’t react, so he took off his boot and threw it at me. At some point he also threw a fork at me. He eventually went to the bathroom and passed out. No one said anything or reacted.”

The court heard previously how Depp branded Heard a "go-getting s**t" who liked "getting f***ed" by her "rapey" co-star James Franco in the row.

The actor also allegedly hurled ice cubes at his wife during the row and kicked a chair so hard it swivelled round and hit her.

He then stormed into the bathroom and passed out drunk on the floor, it was said.

But Depp has denied the claims of violence against his wife, saying he went to the bathroom to sleep on the floor.

And a text from Depp to his actor pal Paul Bettany was read to the court where the star said he was an "angry, aggro Injun in a f***ing blackout, screaming obscenities and insulting any f*** who got near…"

Heard is giving evidence today at the high-profile trial and claims Depp attacked her 14 times over three years, which he denies.

He is suing The Sun for referring to him as a "wife-beater" in a 2018 article. The Sun, supported by Ms Heard, says the term was justified.

The court was told today how Depp would threaten to "carve" Heard's face up if she ever left him or hurt him.

Heard also claimed Depp threatened to "kill her many times" during explosive drug-fuelled rows.

She said: "He explicitly threatened to kill me many times. He would blame all his actions on a self-created third person, which he often called The Monster.

“He talked about our relationship being ‘dead or alive’ and told me that death was the only way out of the relationship.

“He described what he wanted to do to me if I left him or hurt him, for example, carving my face up so no one else would want me.

“He also said what he would do to others he didn’t like or was threatened by, detailing how he wanted to have someone tortured or how cheap and easy it would be to have someone knocked off."

Heard told the High Court how her weight plummeted while she was with Depp – claiming she was left "scared all the time".

The star added: "Over the years, Johnny threatened me a lot about me leaving him.

"He would talk about what he would do to me if I left him, such as, ‘I will cut up your face so no one will want you ever again’ and about how he knew people who could ‘break a leg, real cheap’.”

Heard also claimed Depp made "all kinds of demeaning and derogatory comments" about actresses and branded them as being like "two-bit w****s".

And the star also claimed Depp would "demean" her if she wore anything seen as sexy – calling her a "w***e, s**t and fame hungry".

Heard added: "He started saying things like, ‘Well I’m going to have to watch you get raped’ and ‘I hope you get railed by a bunch of f***ing fellas'."

Depp also allegedly told her when referring to their relationship: "The only way out of this is death".

And she today refuted previous claims made by Depp and his pals she was a "gold-digger" as she dabbed her nose with a tissue from the witness box.

Heard added: "What Johnny says about my so-called ‘agenda’ in marrying him, for financial benefit or to somehow further my career, is preposterous.

“I remained financially independent from him the whole time we were together and the entire amount of my divorce settlement was donated to charity.

“In fact, my desire to remain financially independent was one of the main sources of conflict during our relationship.”

The actress, who wore a white blouse and black skirt, is expected to spend three days in the witness box as she goes face-to-face with Depp, 57.

The star beamed and waved at the crowds as she arrived at the High Court in London today.

Depp also smiled as he was mobbed by fans when he arrived at court in a dark suit today.

Heard has accused Depp of hitting her for the first time in early 2013 when he turned into a "monster" and claims he subjected her to a "three-day hostage rampage" in Australia in 2015.

She also claims the Pirates of the Caribbean star chucked a magnum of champagne at her and grabbed her hair when she showed up late to her 30th birthday bash in a drug-fuelled rage.

Depp gave evidence for five days at the start of the three-week trial.

Shocking details of the couple's tumultuous marriage were played out to the court as he took to the stand – including claims she or a pal pooed in their marital bed after the birthday row.

A glimpse into Depp's wild Hollywood lifestyle was also revealed – including him admitting he drunk a pint of wine for breakfast and started taking drugs aged just 11.

Depp is accused of turning his "rage and frustration" on Heard when he "failed to control" his drug and alcohol abuse.

The actor "descended into physically destructive behaviour" – causing him to refer to his "drunken and violent persona as 'the monster'", it was said.

But in a series of explosive revelations, Depp has branded Heard's abuse allegations "complete lies".

And he called his ex-wife “calculating, sociopathic and emotionally dishonest” as he accused her of "building a dossier" of false allegations as an "insurance policy".

Depp also accused Heard of pooing in their marital bed after a birthday bust up, which he says was the catalyst for their bitter divorce.

The star also claims Heard severed his finger during a trip to Australia in 2015 by throwing a vodka bottle at him and accused her of repeatedly punching him in the face.

He has brought separate libel proceedings against Heard in the US.

The couple married in LA in 2015 after meeting on the set of comedy The Rum Diary.

But they divorced two years later after Heard, who donated her £5.5million settlement to charity, accused Depp of abuse.

The case continues.
