Amber Heard and Jason Momoa reportedly had a tense relationship on the set of Aquaman 2, with the actress apparently having claimed that the actor dressed as Johnny Depp on set. 

The Zombieland actress, 37, was cast in the DC franchise as Mera and has so far made two film appearances as the character – in the first Aquaman movie and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Heard is set to appear in the sequel – Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom – later this year and it has now been claimed that there was major tension while filming the superhero sequel.

A shocking exposé has been published by Variety, in which it is alleged that Momoa, 44, was drunk on set and attempted to have Heard dropped from the movie.

These claims against Momoa have been refuted, with a DC spokesperson telling the publication: “Jason Momoa conducted himself in a professional manner at all times on the set of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.”

An insider who worked on the London set in 2021 added: “Jason works his a** off, likes to have a beer once in a while like everyone, but doesn’t show up drunk to set.”

They also said that Heard and Momoa had always gotten along well and that the Game of Thrones star has ‘always dressed in that bohemian style’.

These bombshell allegations come from recently released documents from Heard’s therapist, Dr Dawn Hughes – who was involved in the high-profile defamation trial between the actress and her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, 60.

Heard’s alleged claims were reportedly made back in 2021 during her therapy sessions.

Notes read (per Variety): “Jason said he wanted me fired. Jason drunk – late on set. Dressing like Johnny. Has all the rings too.”

During Heard’s defamation trial with Depp, there was a renewed interest in the actress’ role in the upcoming film.

The In the Fire star claimed during her testimony that studio executives at Warner Bros. didn’t want to ‘include’ her in the sequel due to her ongoing drama with her ex-husband.

She alleged in court: “I was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it… and they basically took a bunch out of my role.”

However, this allegation was disputed by DC boss Walter Hamada during his testimony, as he insisted her role being minimised had nothing to do with Depp.

“I think editorially they were able to make that relationship work in the first movie,” he claimed.

“But there was a concern that it took a lot of effort to get there and that would we be better off finding someone with more natural chemistry with Jason Momoa and move forward that way.”
