Amber Heard is just talking up a storm these past few weeks regarding her relationship with Johnny Depp.
In the September issue of Flare magazine, the 27-year-old shares her thoughts on her upcoming film with Liam Hemsworth and how she goes about navigating her professional and personal life in Hollywood.
Some selected quotes…
Starting with how she keeps her relationship with Johnny private (by talking about it, naturally): “It’s not part of my professional life. I want to be an artist. I don’t want to be a celebrity…You can find pictures of me [on the Internet] pumping gas, picking up dry cleaning, walking my dog, but nowhere are you going to find pictures of me hanging around at some nightclub…”
On not aspiring to have a tabloid romance: “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. I’ve always been the person who says what she wants.”
On her upcoming thriller Paranoia: “I loved how you’re dealing with a lot of old themes like greed and power, but it’s such a modern story. My character basically had to be smart enough to manipulate Liam Hemsworth’s character. Yes, there are sex scenes, but it wasn’t like she was falling at his feet.”
On how she chooses roles: “[The script] doesn’t say that these characters are ‘sexy.’ I’m not picking them because of that. I take roles that are interesting, and scripts that have female characters with depth.”
