Amber Heard gets candid in the latest issue of Elle and we’re all about her brazenness.
The confident actress, who stars in the tech thriller Paranoia, out this Friday, talked to the fashion magazine about how she chooses her roles and her fluid sexuality.
“I try to play characters who are somehow empowered or strong,” Amber told Elle. “People want to put me in a wedding dress and make me the object of affection, but I’d much rather shoot the gun and save the world. I’ve always fought against what was expected of me as much as I could.”
While she’s talking about her professional career, the same can be said of her personal life. The 27-year-old came out as bisexual in 2010, and is currently dating Johnny Depp.
“I didn’t want to look like I was hiding anything,” she said of her two-year relationship with photographer Tasya van Ree. “I’m not, and wasn’t ever, ashamed.”
Just when you think you have her figured out, she defies your expectations. Think she’ll star in a rom-com, and she books a role as a double agent in Machete Kills, for instance.
“I don’t imagine myself, my work, or my life, fitting into any kind of standardized path. In fact, the idea of there even being a standard freaks me out a lot.”
