Amber Heard: biography
The full name of the famous film actress is Amber Laura Heard. She was born on April 22, 1986 in Austin, Texas. Amber's father, whose name is David, was an ordinary worker, Paige's mother works as an Internet researcher.
While still a teenager, Amber Heard was already actively trying herself as an actress. She took part not only in school theatrical performances, but also in advertising and political campaigns, and also starred in local commercials.
At the age of 16, the future celebrity lost her best friend - she crashed in a car accident. This grief greatly influenced Amber and she unexpectedly declared herself an atheist for everyone, although until that day she was a staunch Catholic. When she turned 17, Heard dropped out of St. Michael, after which she left for New York in search of a better life, happiness and love.
In New York, Amber Heard began working as a model. However, this profession did not attract her at all, so she did not devote her best years to her. Soon, Amber went to Los Angeles, even then she had a cherished dream - to become a successful and famous actress.
Personal life of Amber Heard
From 2007 to 2008, Heard had a relationship with actor Crispin Glover. They were co-stars in Murderous Sexuality.
Amber Heard really does not fit into the generally accepted framework, because she does not at all hide the fact that she has a non-traditional sexual orientation. The actress claims that she had interesting and pleasant relationships with both men and women. The proof was the fact that after breaking up with Crispin, Amber began dating Tasya van Ri, who is known as a successful photographer. A whirlwind romance lasted for three years.
In December 2010, Amber Heard came out as a lesbian. It happened at a party organized by GLAAD. As the actress herself said, she had the strength to admit her gay orientation largely thanks to the activities of this alliance. In addition, Heard stated that she hates labels, but “I am who I am,” she said. Amber does not feel that she is wrong, therefore, with a light heart and soul, she gives herself up to the relationship that she chooses.
Amber herself interrupted a long-running romance with Tasya van Rie, as on the set of the film "The Rum Diary" she met her new love - an actor Johnny depp. The legendary Hollywood celebrity responded to Amber with the same feelings and soon left his family for the young actress. To a greater extent, this is what provided Heard with worldwide fame. Films with Amber Heard even those who yesterday only heard her name for the first time began to watch.
While Johnny Depp was sharing the acquired property with his ex-wife Vanessa Paradis, Amber wasted no time. She met with the daughter of former French Prime Minister Marie de Villepin.
However, the break in relations with the famous actor did not last long - soon Heard moved to Depp's mansion and even accepted a ring from him. In the spring of 2013, Johnny Depp made a marriage proposal to the young actress. She didn't refuse. In honor of the curves of the body of his new lover, the actor named one of the bays of his own island located in the Bahamas.
