After Drew Barrymore downplayed Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's ongoing trial during an episode of her talk show, the star has issued an apology.

"And I thank everyone helping me grow along the way and teaching me. Thank you."

A few days before she took accountability for her words, Barrymore touched on Depp and Heard's court case and their decision to televise it.

"It’s like one layer of crazy ... it’s a seven-layer dip of insanity. I know that these are two people’s real lives and I know what it’s like to have your life put out in public," she noted. "I understand all the feelings, but they are actually offering up this information that nobody had to know. This is crazy!"
