Juror from Heard/Depp case says they didn't believe Heard's 'crocodile tears'
The juror does believe the couple were mutually abusive.
One of the jurors from the infamous Johnny Depp / Amber Heard defamation trial has said that the actress made them feel uncomfortable, but they didn't believe her "crocodile tears".
The first big Amber Heard interview is set to air on Friday, with snippets released throughout this week. But a separate interview with an anonymous juror may spell trouble for Heard, who is perhaps hoping her sit-down sways some of the public discourse.
Talking to ABC's Good Morning America, one of the five male jurors said the actress was unbelievable.

"The crying, the facial expressions that she had, the staring at the jury. All of us were very uncomfortable," they said. "She would answer one question and she would be crying, and two seconds later she would turn ice cold. Some of us used the expression 'crocodile tears.'"
On Depp, the juror said he was more believable and at ease on the stand. They explained: "He just seemed a little more real in terms of how he was responding to questions.
"His emotional state was very stable throughout."
But the juror continued to say that he believed the ex-couple were mutually abusive and that the 36-year-old actress simply didn't have enough evidence. Despite some people suggesting that Depp's image could have affected the jury, something Heard has also contended, the juror maintained that several people, including himself, were not on social media.
"A lot of Amber's story didn't add up and the majority of the jury felt she was more the aggressor," the juror said. "We followed the evidence."
