Amber Heard has opened up about the Johnny Depp kiss that cost her $1 million. 

The Aquaman actress, 37, reportedly began dating Depp, 59, in 2012.

The stars tied the knot in 2015 and just six months later, Heard filed for divorce.

Following their short-lived romance, the couple became embroiled in a high-profile defamation case that saw them continuously make headlines last year.

And now those who have followed their drama are saying it all came down to one kiss.

Watch the kiss that changed everything in the clip below…

Heard and Depp reportedly met on the set of their 2011 film The Rum Diary.

As per The Independent, the Zombieland star recalled her kiss scene with Depp during their defamation trial, saying it didn’t feel ‘normal’.

She clarified: “It felt real.”

Heard went on to recall: “He kind of picked up the back of my robe with his boot and I kind of turned around and giggled… He kind of playfully pushed me down on this bed, sofa. Playful and flirtatious. And he said, ‘Yum’.”

The 37-year-old said that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor used tongues with her during this particular on-set kiss.

During her defamation trial against Depp, Heard said that she and her ex-husband fell in love while making the movie.

However, she felt ‘nervous’ and ‘intimidated’ as both were involved in relationships at the time.

Amid the ex-couple’s defamation trial, this particular kissing scene in The Rum Diary went viral.

One person insists: “Nothing would have happened if they had left it at that kiss.”

Another adds: “Shower scene to courtroom!”

While a third person comments that it cost a ‘reputation and career’.

“And here is the curse’s beginning,” remarks someone else.

Following the defamation trial – in which they both accused each other of domestic violence – it was reported that Heard would pay Depp $1 million to settle their long-running legal battle.

This was significantly reduced from the $8.35 million sum that Heard had been ordered to pay after their six-week trial in Virginia.

In a statement, Depp’s attorneys revealed that the money would be being donated to charity.

Previously, his representatives have clarified that for the Edward Scissorhands star, it was ‘never about the money’.

Almost a year after the trial and little has been heard from the Aquaman actress.

It’s been reported that Heard has ‘quit Hollywood’ and moved continents, while allegedly taking up a new name.

Meanwhile, Depp’s career appears to be blossoming once again.

He’s reportedly signed a $20 million historic deal with Dior, while also having received standing ovations for his latest movie.
