The filmmakers of "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" significantly reduced Amber Heard's role in the film, Entertainment Weekly reported, citing the testimony of the actress in court.

According to Heard, she had to fight "very hard" to continue starring in Hollywood after her high-profile divorce. Heard accused Depp of creating a smear campaign, which almost ruined her film career.

The star said that she had to conduct lengthy negotiations to participate in the second part of "Aquaman", as the company Warner Bros., which is engaged in shooting the film, wanted to completely exclude Heard from the project. According to the actress, she ended up appearing for 10 minutes in a shortened version of the original story planned for her character Mera in "Aquaman 2."

At the end of April, a petition demanding that the actress be removed from the film got 4 million signatures.
