AceShowbiz - Howard Stern has weighed in on the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial. Taking side in the defamation case, the radio host blasted the Golden Globe-winning actor as a "narcissist" and for "overacting" in court.
Howard gave his two cents on the highly-publicized trial in the Monday, April 25 episode of "The Howard Stern Show". He started by accusing Johnny of wanting the trial televised because "that's what narcissists do."
"The reason he wanted that on - he wanted it televised [because] that's what narcissists do. They think they can talk their way out of anything," the shock jock said on his radio show. "I think Johnny Depp is a huge narcissist and what I mean by that is - he figured, 'I'll put this on TV and because I'm so persuasive and because I'm so smart, I'm such a wonderful guy.' "
"I'll play you some clips from the Johnny Depp trial. If he isn't acting - I mean, he's so overacting because he's writing his own material as he goes along," he continued. "You know, I gotta tell you, he's wrong. He shouldn't be putting this on TV in any shape."
His co-host Robin Quivers chimed in, "He's trying to save his career. I don't think this is going to help," to which Howard agreed, "No. But that's what narcissists do." Robin echoed the sentiment, simply responding with, "Yeah."
Howard further predicted that things will not end well for both Johnny and Amber. " 'I will charm the pants off of America at the trial.' No you won't! This will not go well," the former "America's Got Talent" judge said. "It's not going well for you, it's not going well for her. It's not going well for anybody. You sound like two battling children."
"It's just coming off really badly," he continued. "Johnny Depp testified in court for two days last week. Two days. Think about that, lots of room to embarrass yourself. Two full f**king days!"
The 68-year-old additionally took issue with Johnny's accent. "First of all, his difficulty in speaking the English language is fantastic!" he sarcastically said. Robin added, "Stumbling over the names of people who have been with him for thirty years."
"And the accent. First of all, isn't he from like the South of the Midwest?" Howard asked. "Johnny Depp was born in Kentucky. Does that sound like a guy from Kentucky?" he further stressed. "No. No," Robin responded.
Contrary to Howard's claims though, neither Johnny or Amber had a say on the trial being televised. Judge Penney Azcarate allowed cameras in courtroom despite an effort from the actress' legal team to restrict them.
