This is what lies behind the nicknames Amber Heard and Johnny Depp gave to each other in their love letters and in the messages they sent each other throughout their relationship.
The trial relating to the $ 50 million defamation lawsuit filed by Johnny Depp against ex-wife Amber Heard will resume on Monday: over the past week nicknames like “Steve” And “Slim“appeared in the love letters and in the messages of the two Hollywood stars.
The notes, handwritten by Heard, describe the Pirates of the Caribbean star as a friend she fell in love with. The Aquaman actress shared her feelings for Depp in one of her letters writing: “True love is not just about the madness of passion or choosing the security of peace. No, it’s about having both. You have to fall madly in love with your best friend. “
In the letter the actress continued: “You’re the last person in the world who deserves it, the last person I ever wanted to hurt. I love you, Steve. Forever yours, Slim. “Many have wondered about the nicknames mentioned in the couple’s correspondence: the two met while working on a film set, consequently the nicknames derive from the 1944 film South Waters.
In the film in question star Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart in the main roles and their respective characters are called Slim and Steve. Just like Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, the two have been apart for more than two decades. “I was old Bogie, and she was this beautiful creature, this extraordinary creature“explained Depp himself during his testimony.
