Amber Heard

Spotlight

Amber Heard has gained more recognition for her personal life than her professional one, but the Texan is trying to change that. The blonde dropped out of high school to pursue modeling in New York and then acting in Los Angeles. She made both her TV (“Jack & Bobby”) and movie (“Friday Night Lights”) debuts in 2004 and has worked consistently since playing the younger version of Charlize Theron in “North Country,” a wayward teen in “Alpha Dog,” the titular object of affection in “All The Boys Love Mandy Lane,” a 2006 film is getting a second chance in theaters in 2013 and a hunter of the undead in “Zombieland.” Heard received a 2008 Young Hollywood Award for “Pineapple Express and has made multiple appearances on sexy lady lists published by outlets like Maxim magazine and FHM. After coming out as a bisexual in 2010 at a GLAAD 25th anniversary gala and announcing her years-long romance with photographer Tasya van Ree, she played down her previous comments about her orientation and played up her sex appeal as a Playboy bunny in the ill-fated, much-hyped 2011 series “The Playboy Club.” Apparently, Johnny Depp drank the Kool-Aid as he began dating the “Paranoia” star a year after they worked together on “The Rum Diary” (2011) and his marriage to Vanessa Paradis has fallen apart. They've crisscrossed the globe with his children, holding hands, visiting museums and occasionally dressing alike.
