For someone who’s only marginally famous (C+ list only because of her relationship with Johnny Depp, let’s be honest), Amber Heard sure has a lot to say. Funny enough, most of it is obnoxious. Sure, she’s young, so it makes sense that she’s gonna want to waffle on about her theories on life and all it entails. Doesn’t mean it’s not eyeroll-inducing, however.
Her latest admission comes in the form of an interview she did about her new film 3 Days to Kill. It’s apparently an action film co-starring Kevin Costner (lol), and Amber was asked what attracted her to such an adventurous role. Here’s her answer:
“I would always prefer to shoot the gun than wear a wedding dress,” she explained. “It is far more interesting to me.”
Yes, we get it. You’re not just some pretty blonde! You’re hardcore and way too smart to play stereotypical roles! You’re such a bad-ass.
I actually do think it’s a really admirable trait to want to go for something different and not take the kind of roles she could probably most easily get, but I feel like this girl is ALWAYS proclaiming how wonderful she is and how she’s just too smart to accept her own beauty and all that shit. You know, she’s really struggled with being so pretty, guys. Boo hoo.

There have been rumours flying around that Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are engaged, and indeed those rumours are based in truth: they’re going to get married! They’ve been dating since about 2012-ish (it’s a bit murky), so it might seem a bit early for rings to be put on fingers, but oh well! They’re doing it!
People wanted the inside scoop on why they got engaged. I feel like that mostly happens when two people love each other, but maybe I’m not clued in to something, so here’s what they found out:
What made Depp get so serious so fast? “She’s a great match for him and his individuality,” says a source who knows Depp. “She’s a free spirit.”
Well, that was enlightening. Don’t forget that Johnny was with Vanessa Paradis still when he met Amber on the set of The Rum Diaries. Amber was, at the time, in a relationship of her own, with photographer Tasya Van Ree. Some say they were so taken with one another’s “free spirit” that they both cheated on their partners at the time to do the dirty. Who can say?

If you’re anything like me, you probably never thought in a million years that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard‘s relationship would make it past the first month, let alone into 2014. And yet here we are, halfway through January and there are rumours running wild that Johnny has proposed. Those rumours might be truer than any of us would hope (or care about?), since Amber has been bustling about LA trying desperately to cover the massive rock on her finger.
From E! Online:
Despite a good effort to keep her left hand covered, an eagle-eyed paparazzo got a bird’s-eye view of what appeared to be a diamond ring on that ringer as Heard was leaving a restaurant last night in Los Angeles.
Reps for both Heard, 27, and Depp, 50, have not yet responded to the question this ring instantly brings to mind—is the handsome couple engaged?!
Until this past weekend, the public side of their romance had been relegated to photos of the two out and about in various cities around the world and vague references to romance and privacy in interviews.
Hmm, this picture is pretty telling, as well:
So, what’s the verdict? Are these two actually gonna go through with this nonsense?

The Golden Globes happened last night and man, what a trainwreck! People were drunk and cursing all over the place. And Clooney wasn’t even there.
But you know what was there? The best, worst, and most WTF celebrity fashion had to offer. Let’s take a look through all these GG outfits and pick out which ones were deserving of BEST, WORST, and WTF.

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.
