Amber Heard is a pretty lady but a pretty sub-par actress, in my opinion. Sure, her life is great because she’s still managed to get rich and now gets to sleep with everyone’s favourite dirty hippie grandpa, Johnny Depp (yes, we all still would), but things could’ve been so different for her in Hollywood if there were better roles to go around. You see, Amber can’t help that she’s pretty, and since there are so few good roles for women that aren’t about being pretty, she just went with the flow.
“You name me movies where the woman’s part isn’t narrower than the man’s and they will be the exceptions – not the norm. I think in Europe things are better, but, in the US, we still have characters who are defined by physical attractiveness.”
“I try to search for roles where the character is not dependent on how she looks, but it is hard because I didn’t know anyone in this industry so I started as an extra and fought.
“I’ve had to take on roles that were superficial, girlfriend roles, but I’ve tried to put some power or strength into them. And I don’t think talent and beauty are mutually exclusive. It’s a shame that someone like Charlize Theron has to put on a bunch of weight and fake teeth to be seen as a talented actress.”
I mean, look – I do get what she’s saying. But it’s sorta hard to feel bad for her since the whole reason she even has a career and a platform on which to bitch about this is because she’s conventionally attractive and was able to make that work for her. Yes, Hollywood should put even MORE great roles out there for women that aren’t based on physical attractiveness, but she’s worried about being locked out of… something she’s not locked out of? All the great roles for women that are out there and filled by attractive women, she could theoretically fill, physically speaking. If she were a better actress.
I get her point about the fact that women even have to be attractive to get roles, but it would be nice if she could recognize her part in that. Ugh, whatever, Amber Heard. Side note, though – I was at some launch party at Diane Von Furstenberg’s studio a couple years back and Amber was there and HOLY MOLY is she perfection in person. Like, intimidatingly pretty. I feel like these Company photos make her look like a a bad combo of Evan Rachel Wood and Rumer Willis, so not sure what’s going on there. Just wanted to vouch for her prettiness.

I don’t really care about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard – not as a couple or individually, for that matter (although I will say I went to a party at a designer’s studio last year and Amber Heard was there and was kinda mindblowingly gorgeous). Their romance just doesn’t move me – and why should it, really, considering we don’t know them? In any case, Amber did an interview with Flare magazine in which she felt the need to clear up any “misconceptions” (uh…) and let people know that she and Johnny are nothing like Brangelina. Because you were obviously making that comparison.
“Can you ever imagine yourself in a situation like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, where the world feels like they have a stake in your private life? I would never want it.”
“I guess I could not hold hands with who I want to, but what kind of life would that be? I don’t want to change just because people are watching.”
Well, that’s fair enough, but people are all up in their grills because they live the kind of lifestyle where they’re around paparazzi 24/7 and sort of invite that. Even Brad and Angelina don’t have people in their faces ALL the time, but they would if they invited that kind of attention.
Anyway, these two are a boring couple – but then, that’s coming from someone who never got the big deal about Johnny Depp.

Johnny Depp may or may not be engaged to his (ex?) girlfriend Amber Heard, but if he’s not, rumor is he’s planning on it. No doubt this is greatly disappointing to Ke$ha, but Mr. Depp’s ex, Vanessa Paradis, may have some issues with it as well.
Here’s the latest from my favorite, National Enquirer:
“Vanessa doesn’t care for Amber at all,” said a source. “She’s convinced that Amber’s trying to get her hooks into Johnny and his money by getting him to propose. But Vanessa doesn’t believe it’s going to last, and that’s why she’s against Johnny marrying Amber. She thinks their kids will be crushed when the relationship goes south. Vanessa thinks he’s smitten because Amber’s so exotic and says he’ll grow tired of her,” added the source. “But before he does, he just might pop the question – and that’s the last thing Vanessa wants.”
I don’t know if I buy this story. Ms. Paradis is doing great. She had an album drop last month, looked great at Cannes, and has a new film coming out. And she said she’s pretty much over it. Not that celebrities can’t change their minds and experience heartache and all that. I get it, they’re ~~real people~~ too. But better. The real truth to this story is that you don’t find much publicity about Amber Heard without having Johnny Depp’s name tied to it. And weirdly, I can’t find any recent photos of the two of them together.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were rumoured to be dating for ages, with some reports even suggesting that they were engaged last November, even though it was never even confirmed that they were anything more than friends to begin with and Amber was still apparently with ex-girlfriend and photographer Tasya Van Ree. Then apparently they split up in January so Amber could get her lady lovin’ on with some French model and now I guess maybe they’re back together again or something? Oh, I don’t even know anymore.
From The Mirror:
One minute they’re on, the next they’re off now they’re getting Stoned together. (Seeing the Rolling Stones perform, that is.)
Film idol Johnny Depp took on/off girlfriend Amber Heard on a date to see his mates Mick Jagger & Co. at their low-key gig at the Echoplex club in LA.
The pair were thought to have split in January when bisexual Amber, 27, left him for a holiday with French model Marie de Villepin.
But on Saturday night at the Stones gig, she looked like she was his (Honky Tonk) woman again (sorry).
An onlooker tells me: “Johnny and Amber were really touchy-feely when they arrived in a limo.
“They spent the night hand-in-hand and Johnny was really keen to introduce her to his mates.
“He’s a big fan of the Stones, especially Keith, and hung around near his dressing room to chat after the show.
“The party was really A-List so people just let him and Amber be. It was a great atmosphere.”

So promise not to kill me for this, because I know that I totally despise it when my favorite celebrity gossip blogs write ridiculously misleading headlines, but hear me out here. There’s actually a very good reason for my blatant lie about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard being all engaged and stuff. Here. From Us Magazine:
After arriving at [L.A. club at] 11 p.m., the twosome — who kicked off a romance in late 2011 during their Rum Diary press tour — settled in on the patio, where, a witness says, they sipped nonalcoholic beers sitting side by side.
“They were flirty and engaged,” says the source. And their affection was no act.
Another insider says the actress, 26, “was telling people they were officially together” at a Gucci party October 27. (Depp, 49, and Vanessa Paradis, 39, split in June 2012 after separating in 2010.)
A pal says the Lone Ranger star is serious about the starlet: “They have said ‘I love you.’ ”
So, OK. Now you know where I got this “engaged” business from. It was the first thing I thought when I read the excerpt from Us. And really, it isn’t all that much of a stretch if these two boneheads are already saying “I love you,” now, is it?
And hey, what’s with the non-alcoholic beers? Are there seriously people out there who love the taste of beer so much that they’ll drink it even without the “benefit” of catching a buzz? Because I don’t get that. When I was a younger gal, I “liked” beer, but really, it is as they say—an acquired taste. And just as easily as I acquired it, I disacquired it, and now I can’t stand the taste. It’s similar to weed killer to me (not that I know what weed killer tastes like, but I can just imagine), and honestly, I’d rather a good glass of red (never white) wine.
What are your thoughts on libations? And is beer seriously beer without all of the fermentation and alcohol whatever that normally goes into beer?

I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it one last time: if you emulate, or try to compare your music, your style, or your career (or worst of all, your life) to Marilyn Monroe, you’ve got some awful, deep-seated issues that are just never going to go away, unless you’re Megan Fox and you achieve the clarity that it takes to painfully remove a stupid, ill-considered tattoo of Marilyn Monroe on a visible part of your body. OK?
Here’s the latest Marilyn wannabe: Amber Heard. Who I don’t generally think all that highly of, anyway, but after this business, my ratings are even lower. Sure, I get that most celebrities don’t get to choose the photo shoot theme, but they do get to choose the photo shoots that they participate in. And anyone with a shred of self-worth should know that posing as Marilyn Monroe (unless you’re CAST as Marilyn Monroe in a loose biopic) is going to subject you to intense mental scrutiny and general public mockery.
But alas? Amber Heard. She posed for Max Italy, a magazine where it’s apparently not taboo to parade around looking like a second-rate hooker with a bad dye-job who has a history of mental illness and erratic behaviors. And it’s bad. All of it’s so, so bad.
So please. Just stop. It really makes me want to kill myself every time I have to make fun of some stupid celebrity who thinks that Marilyn Monroe comparisons are flattering and are actually going to help further their career, and I’m far too f-cking happy of a person to feel like I want to kill myself over stupid people that have no identity of their own, alright?
