For the past months, Johnny Depp's wife Amber Heard has faced court in Australia after bypassing the country's biosecurity laws and smuggling in the couple's two Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo last year, even getting into a very public dispute with Minister for Agriculture Barnaby Joyce. In a recent clip, the Hollywood supercouple has apologized for what happened -- but the clip is a little too creepy.
Last Sunday, the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources posted a 42-second clip on YouTube. The Oscar nominee and his wife of one year apologized for what happened last year. In the footage, the usually fairly lively pair grimly states they respect the laws Down Under and the life within the country.
"Australia is a wonderful island with a treasure trove of unique plants, animals and people," Heard says in the video, with her husband somberly adding a few seconds later that seconds later that "It has to be protected".
All in all, Depp and Heard look straight out of a Stepford Wives remake in this thing.
According to The Independent, the clip was first unveiled in court this Monday, during Heard's appearance in Queensland. At that time, Heard pled guilty to one charge of making a false statement on her immigration card, after two charges of illegal importation were dropped.
There was insufficient evidence to charge Depp as well. It was part of the point of Heard pleading guilty that excusd the actor from presenting evidence to support his own case, BBC reports. In any case, neither of them will be facing any jail time. Heard received a good behavior bond for one month. If she were to break it, she'll face a fine of AU$1,000, namely $771.65.
The recent apology is a wild change of tune for the Hollywood couple. Last year, Depp called Agriculture Minister Joyce a "weird sweaty gutman" on Jimmy Kimmel Live, mocking the fact that he and his wife had gotten into legal trouble over bypassing Australia's biosecurity laws.
