Heard moved abroad after a highly publicized defamation trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp.
“Jeanne du Barry” has been billed as Depp’s comeback film following his explosive trial last year with Amber Heard, his ex-wife.
The "Aquaman" actor, who accused her ex of domestic abuse, said the decision to settle was “a very difficult decision” and that "not an act of concession."
"I’m not here to answer for anybody, and I feel like for a lot of my career, people have really wanted to define me by the men in my life," she explained.
Many advocates feared the reaction to the Depp-Heard trial would have a chilling effect on domestic violence survivors trying to come forward. Some say that initial fear has come true.
The film, "Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial," will premiere on Tubi at the end of this month and stars "American Horror Story" actor Megan Davis as Heard.
Just ahead of the Academy Awards, People magazine revealed their list of Hollywood's most stylish stars. Lupita Nyong'o, Emma Stone and Emily Blunt are just three of the names. The most stylish men of the year were also announced, from Timothée Chalamet’s trendsetting to Donald Glover's throwback style. And not forgetting Jeff Goldblum's eccentricity.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor appeared virtually as the MTV Video Music Awards' Moon Person on Sunday night.
The actor made his first on-camera appearance since the defamation verdict against ex-wife Amber Heard in June.
The stars are still battling over a defamation case that went largely Depp's way.
