Naomie Harris offers a straightforward message for the media: “appeal to people’s higher nature rather than their base impulses, which are to be titillated and intrigued.”
In response to the widespread reporting on Johnny Depp’s defamation action against ex-wife Amber Heard, the star of “No Time to Die” has spoken out. Harris, who worked with Depp on the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, spoke out against the “disturbing” level of media attention given to the “very private matter” in an interview with The Independent.

The case was “rammed down our throats every day,” Harris added, so it’s hard to have missed it. That’s what everybody was talking about; it was all over the news and social media. There’s something troubling about that, in my opinion; there are significant issues happening around the globe that should be getting more attention than they are, and yet this kind of crap keeps getting broadcast instead.
Harris elaborated, “I don’t understand why the whole world was allowed access to what should have been a very private case between two people. It’s very strange and worrisome, in my opinion. We aired that, but we didn’t air Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial, which was much more timely and significant. For me, that presents some serious problems.
Harris commented on how the verdict in Heard’s defamation case against ex-husband Johnny Depp, in which she cited domestic abuse, might affect the MeToo movement. Harris described the Hollywood reckoning as “very powerful,” saying, “It’s considerably more impactful than one particular case and one guy.” There is too much momentum behind it for anyone to stop it now. Things will carry on as before. The MeToo movement has already led to tangible changes.

Harris had previously spoken up about an incident at an audition in which a “big star” pushed his hand up her skirt. Harris said that there was inappropriate behavior from one person even in the first few days of filming for “The Man Who Fell to Earth” on Showtime, but that there was no “hesitation” to fire that person.
“We have a zero-tolerance policy against any type of bullying or sexual harassment on the set,” Harris, who backs the UK Time’s Up-founded Independent Standards Association, said proudly. In actuality, an incident occurred while filming. The person in question was fired on the spot on his first day of filming. That, I believe, exemplifies how drastically the business world has evolved.
