Heard filed for divorce from Depp in May 2016, accusing him of being "verbally and physically abusive" in court documents. The pair reached a settlement in August 2016, and their divorce was finalized in January 2017.
"I always tend to do things truthfully and do the right thing. All I strive for in life is never get the temptation to try to be popular, liked, accepted. It's never anywhere equal to the desire I have to live my life truthfully and with dignity and with pride," Heard tells GQ Australia. "I wouldn't be able to do that if I wasn't living honestly, so it was never tempting to me to live another way."
"No matter how unpopular or untenable my decisions were, it was never tempting enough to live dishonestly," she adds.
The actress, who has been filming Aquaman in Australia over the last month, also comments on the recent sexual misconduct scandals in Hollywood.
