Amber Heard, A Stunning Classic Beauty

As a gorgeous woman in the film industry, Amber has plenty of opportunities to appear on camera. She has been in music videos, films such as "Machete Kills" and television series such as "Hidden Palms."
Amber is a natural beauty who can turn even the simplest of outfits into something classy. While Amber does not have quite the profile of a Scarlett Johansson or a Keira Knightley, Amber beat out both of those A-Listers to land the plum role in "The Rum Diary."

Girls who are this pretty don't fool around scrounging for parts, Amber is right up there competing successfully with the best in the business. She took an even bigger prize when she accepted co-star Johnny Depp's marriage proposal in early 2014.
Amber got into some trouble with Australia during her marriage to Depp when she flew into the country with two dogs that had not been quarantined. She has nursed a grudge about the incident ever since, manifested by some catty twitter remarks about later legal issues affecting the Australian who prosecuted her.
As is very well known now, Amber and Depp went through an extremely acrimonious divorce after about a year of marriage. The two ultimately settled, and Amber donated a sum of money to charity.
Heard is also famous for dating photographer Tasya van Ree for several years. Amber has said about her sexuality:
I don't label myself one way or another—I have had successful relationships with men and now a woman. I love who I love; it's the person that matters.

Since her marriage to Depp, Amber has made a successful return to acting. She has played Mera in "Justice League" (2017) and ""Aquaman" (2018), and Nicola Six in "London Fields" (2017).
A Texas girl, Amber occasionally wears leather in private, though she appears to prefer softer fabrics. However, when she does wear it, she does it with taste and refinement. Often, it is just a small piece of a larger ensemble that stands out all the more for being just the right addition to her outfit.
I've worked really hard to bring something more to "pretty girl" roles over the years. I consider it a challenge.
I've had amazing, successful relationships with men, and now I have an amazing, successful relationship with a woman, and the bottom line is I love who I love.

We women still make up like one, maybe two percent of the directors [in Hollywood] and until we make up a bigger or I guess a more significant majority or proportion of the filmmakers or until we have a larger stake in the prospective makers, then we won't accurately accomplish that representation.
I'm looking to find good stories, not big commercial pieces of work.
The last few years have been non-stop for me. I've been going from job to job without even going home in-between jobs for the last year. And I'm doing what I love. I'm enjoying the perks of the job-the travel. I am having a great time being a shapeshifter and I'm really getting a kick out of it. I love my job.
I am constantly struggling to show people that there is more to me than my appearance. You do have to try and overcome those hurdles.
I don't take parts because they're for the sexy girl. I take the sexy girl parts and try to give them something else and make them a character.
There's two categories for women in Hollywood; you're either sexy and that's it, or you're not and because of that you often get given better opportunities.
I would love to see women be able to be powerful, complex, smart, opinionated and taken seriously, even if they are beautiful. Even more, I would love to see women held to different standards, other than the superficial ones that we're held to.
I'm strong, I'm smart, I'm not a victim, to my detriment.
You can't respect yourself if you're afraid to be who you are.
It requires bravery to do something no one else around you is doing.
All I've ever needed is myself.
Once you start working out, you feel better and it becomes something you make time to do.
I grew up driving old pickup trucks on the ranch with my dad, and I still always myself driving like I'm out in an open field, except I'm in LA on La Cienega in the middle of rush hour.
I have always been very rebellious and gone against the grain. I've always challenged the standards set before me.
