"All I could say is I was in a situation one time where I got blamed for something that I didn't do. It cost me movie jobs for several years, and it caused a bad reputation."

Rourke continued:

"And finally, the truth came out, but the truth came out after I lost movies and I lost jobs, and so I felt bad for somebody that is trying to get chopped down by some gold digger, you know."

"You think that's what she was?"

Rourke did not hesitate: "Abso- f***ing-lutely. Absolutely."

Previously, the retired boxer and actor told the media that Depp "Doesn't seem like a very violent man to me."

In the same interview from May 2016 for TMZ, Rourke added: "He's a very low key guy, he's always been really low key and a gentleman and not violent."

Rourke was among the first celebrities who supported Depp's hunt for justice.

In 2016, Mickey claimed he did not know much about Amber Heard, saying, "I have no idea, I don't know anything about her. I know nothing about her at all."

During the defamation trial in Virginia, Depp won on all three counts and was awarded $15 million. Amber Heard won on one count and was rewarded $2 million.

The judge reduced Depp's $5 million punitive damages to the state maximum of $350,000.
