This is a pretty huge thing for the president of one of the biggest movie studios in Hollywood to say about an actor.
He was also being questioned regarding Amber Heard’s contract and whether Johnny Depp’s lawyer’s comments about Heard had anything to do with her role and Mera in the Aquaman sequel reduced.
Hamada revealed that that had nothing to do with it.
He revealed that he and the studio had concerns about Amber Heard’s lack of chemistry with the movie’s lead, Jason Momoa.
Walter Hamada doesn’t think Amber Heard is a “movie star”!
However, he went a step further than that.
He went on to suggest that he doesn’t see Amber Heard as being a “movie star” and given Heard’s rather enlarged ego, hearing that from DC Films’ President must have hurt.
Here’s what Hamada had to say on the matter:
It’s like what makes a movie star a movie star, you know it when you see it and the chemistry wasn’t there.
This was in reference to Amber Heard’s inability to have chemistry with Jason Momoa.
This must have hurt Amber Heard’s ego

Honestly, I think it would be rather difficult not to have chemistry with Momoa.
Momoa oozes chemistry and it seems as though they really had to edit the movie quite a lot to get a little bit of chemistry between his Arthur Curry and Heard’s Mera.
Hamada revealed that it got so bad that they were contemplating recasting the role for the sequel.
Hamada revealed: “There were conversations about basically recasting.”
