Amber Heard 2

I’m a good shot and I love guns – I own several.

It’s rare to have even half-meaningful conversations in the film industry.

I’ve worked really hard to bring something more to ‘pretty girl’ roles over the years. I consider it a challenge.
Amber Heard

I am constantly struggling to show people that there is more to me than my appearance. You do have to try and overcome those hurdles. Female actresses need to be given the chance to be more than how they look.
Amber Heard

I’m looking to find good stories, not big commercial pieces of work.
Amber Heard

I did nothing to look the way I look. The genetic cards that anyone is dealt are not in their control, so to take pride in my looks would be a mistake. And besides, in L.A. there’s always someone more beautiful!
Amber Heard

I get a stack of scripts, like, once a month, and most of the time, you find these placeholder girls that are there to provide a bounce for the male character. So we know he’s funny because she’s serious and she’s mad at him. We know he’s strong because she needs saving. So really, her job is to validate this personality trait of our hero or male.

I feel like I’m constantly fighting against my exterior, or this exterior presentation of myself, because of how I look or perhaps because of who I’m with.
Amber Heard

I have a fiercely independent spirit.
Amber Heard

We didn’t take Charlize Theron seriously until she did ‘Monster’ and became physically ugly. I would love to see women be able to be powerful, complex, smart, opinionated and taken seriously, even if they are beautiful.

I used to be very interested in the history of women’s rights in this country and in other countries. I tried to learn as much as I could about it, and more than anything, I would be called gay. It was phenomenal. But if a boy has something to say, he is appreciated; he’s even popular. If a girl says something, it’s instantly a threat.

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 think the main struggle for women in Hollywood and women in my position is to fight for true representation in the media and accurate representation of our many diverse qualities in stories.
Amber Heard

When only one or two percent of filmmakers are female, you can’t help but have some kind of bias.

Help, You, Bias

If I were a man, I’d be allowed to play roles that were compelling and drove an audience to an emotional response.
Amber Heard

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.

My favourite thing is to do crossword puzzles. I do the ‘New York Times’ one every morning. Then I go to the barn to see my horse.
