Last May Amber Heard allegedly tried to smuggle her two dogs (Pistol and Boo) into Australia - and she recently pled guilty to falsifying travel documents. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard recorded a video apology which the Australian Government (Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources) then placed on YouTube on 17 April 2016.
The following is a partial nonverbal analysis of the Hollywood couple's mea culpa.
At 0:03.7, Depp Displays a Microexpression of Disgust as Heard says "Australia ..."
During 0:10, Johnny purses his lips just after he says, "... it has to be protected." Lip pursing is significant for Clandestine Disagreement (or Clandestine Plans).
During 0:21, Depp is leans significantly backward with his head and neck. This posture projects contempt and exemplifies the classic, "Looking Down The Nose" arrogance after he says, "and Australians are just as unique ..."
0:37, More Disgust after he says, "Declare everything when you enter Australia"
Despite what words might say - an apology is never sincere without matching sincere body language (and also vocal qualities). Depp's nonverbal behavior was not congruent with either his or Heard's words - thus this was not a sincere apology.
