Johnny Depp has apologized when questioned about the derogatory language he used in text messages about ex-wife Amber Heard.
The 58-year-old actor had previously heard texts he read about Amber, 35, in court as his $50 million libel case against his ex continued in a Virginia court.
Speaking of the messages, Johnny told the judges: “I’m ashamed of some of the references made.
“I’m embarrassed that the heat of the moment, the heat of the pain I felt, went to dark places.”
Earlier court testimony showed that Depp repeatedly called Heard a “c***” and once texted his girlfriend hoping her “rotting corpse would rot in the frigging trunk of a Honda Civic.”
“This c*** ruined such a cool life that we’ve had for a while,” Depp told friend Isaac Baruch in a 2016 text read in court by Heard’s attorney, Elaine Bredehoft.
“Pain needs to be treated with humor, some dark, very dark humor,” Depp said during his testimony on Tuesday.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star opened up about how he used drugs before meeting Heard and how he detoxed while in a relationship with her.
He said his problems began at age 11, when he got his mother’s “nerve pills” and took one himself.
“By the time I was 15, I had done pretty much every drug I knew,” he testified.
“It was never the party effect,” Depp said, “it was an attempt to numb things inside that can plague someone who has experienced trauma.”
The actor slammed Heard’s previously made comments about his alcohol and drug use, saying they were “grossly embellished” and mostly “just plain wrong.”
“I think it was an easy target for them to hit,” Depp told the judges. “I’m not a maniac who needs to be high or charged all the time.”

He said he didn’t do drugs for fear of going through the “hell” of detox one more time.
Depp then told the judges how he met Heard when she auditioned five times for a role in the film The Rum Diary.
He said there was uncertainty as to her suitability for the role, but he felt she was right.
Depp then opened up about how they first kissed on set in his trailer and though she was about to say he denied her.
