Amber Heard is Full of Herself. Lame.

30 Jul

Article source listed at bottom:

Couldn’t have said it better myself. The things listed about Amber Heard in this article are the very reasons people do NOT like her.


The cover is soft and pink – reminds me of Diane Kruger’s FLARE cover a few months ago (click here for a refresher – but the subject seems intent on being as UN-girly as possible. As Amber Heard tells the magazine, she’s more into muscle cars than heels. Which is why she prefers being in horror movies over romantic comedies. Because in horror movies, at least the woman tries to stay alive, instead of placidly living for love:

“If there was an interesting rom-com script, I wouldn’t be against it, but the stuff I have gotten is just girls who are dying to get the guy or be saved by the guy…At least the female characters in horror movies fight back and do something for themselves. They’re not just sitting around waiting for a man to save the day.”

So, muscle cars and slasher films and what else?


She looks like a bombshell but she’s really just a bookworm. Amber Heard READS:

“I hated the idea of school dances, hated whatever was going on in pop culture. I didn’t have any concept of celebrities or Hollywood. I was always reading, reading and listening to music. The only posters I had on my wall were Rosie the Riveter and Jimi Hendrix.”

And she shoots too. Growing up in Texas, guns were a regular part of her life. She does however advocate in favour of gun regulation:

“Gun ownership needs to be regulated, not banned.”

This seems to be the overriding theme of the entire article: Amber Heard is not That Girl. Everyone who’s interviewed about her apparently received the same memo – talk about how smart she is, talk about how tough she is, talk about how she knows about Che Guevera and how Harrison Ford was impressed…

Muscle cars, slasher films, history, books, guns…

Throw in a tattoo and a vial of blood and…


Who does she want to be?

Definitely not a cliché. Definitely not the cliché of the 20-something year old actress and the 50 year old movie star. Definitely not the cliché of NOT being cliché these days.

Definitely not Angelina Jolie.

“Can you ever imagine yourself in a situation like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or (Kanye West’s girlfriend)  and Kanye West, where the world feels like they have a stake in your private life?  I would never want it.”


This must be why she’s dating Johnny Depp. But don’t ask her about it because she refuses to engage. Below is what happens when the writer tries to go there:

FLARE: “Of all the actors you’ve worked with, is there someone with whom you had really amazing chemistry?”

Heard: “You don’t really expect me to answer that, do you?”

She won’t discuss her relationship with Depp, as well as her previous four-year relationship with the photographer Tasya van Ree. (I ask whether she still identifies as bisexual. “It is so strange to me that everyone cares,” she says. “Maybe you like blondes now, but maybe you’ll be into a brunette in the future. I just don’t understand this idea that we have to choose one or the other.”) She and Depp caused a furor when they were photographed holding hands at a Rolling Stones concert this spring. She accompanied him overseas for the interna- tional premieres of his latest film, The Lone Ranger: They had dinner in Moscow and London, strolled about Berlin and ushered the Depp brood through the Tokyo airport. Heard says it’s transparent when reporters are trying to ask about him without actually asking about him. Does she find this funny or just annoying? “Well,” she says, “I’m laughing at you, aren’t I?”

Sure, Amber Heard. You front like you know. Front away like you’re an original. But the power to behave like that, to say those things, and to NOT say anything, where does that power come from?

Right now, at this point in her career, being as most of you couldn’t name one of her movies, except for, ahem, The Rum Diary, the power comes from …

Being Johnny Depp’s girlfriend. So …Congratulations… I guess?

    Good Lord. At least in Angelina’s early interviews she was edgy and interesting. It was only reported that she was a b*tch behind the scenes. Amber is not as good an actress as Angie and is apparently having a harder time hiding it. I can’t wait to see what Chelsea Handler will do with a response like that. I hope she eats her alive!

      Chelsea usually rocks. I hope she (chelsea) doesn’t cave to “don’t ask certain questions” and if she gets a lame response I hope she gives it right back.

    …*facedesk*….Johnny? …Come on, man…Move on …Find the lord…Do something! Just end this nightmare! >_< As if she wasn't gross enough… Ugh*facedesk again*

      I know I’ve also had plenty of :facepalm: moments.

    She is so full of s..t. First of all, the traditional role for women in horror movies is to fall down, twist their ankles, faint, get carried away and then rescued. Not real empowering roles for women. Second of all, she has plagiarized life. She read about Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie and rewrote it as her own life. She’s a real good manipulator, but she has no other talent and she couldn’t be more pretentious, not to mention stupid. Everything she says is idiocy and that’s one reason it’s so annoying that the PR machine tries to convince the public that she’s smart. Plus, while I’m at it, everyone I know reads books. Why are they acting as if that’s criteria for MENSA? Grrrr. What an annoying b…h.

      “criteria for MENSA” Oh here here – I second that. That’s what I don’t understand.

      Right! I can’t help but laugh because they keep pushing this intellectual thing and how much she loves to read, so much so that she didn’t want to do anything else in school. Yet she couldn’t manage to graduate! What a major accomplishment for a Hollywood actress… SHE READS!!!
      Actresses like Meryl and Cate/Kate don’t even talk about themselves like this.. And all this girl has on her résumé are a bunch of flops. It’s so insulting and she (and her PR) are deluded if they think anyone is buying into this.

    MENSA doesn’t want her. I doubt she has the IQ. She just thinks she does, as she thinks she’s some great A-list actor. So she reads, I’ve been reading books since I was 3 years old, honestly. So what, just because you can read words doesn’t mean that you understand them when they are all strung together. I be she’s fail a comprehension test. She bought into Ayn Rand after all. She needs to be brought down by the universe, whether she is with Johnny or not.

    If you recall, I mentioned that celebs are all coached and rehearsed for interviews. Either she is not bothering or this is the image her PR wants her to project. But I truly can’t see to what benefit. Can anyone enlighten me on how this image is going to help her get better roles or gain an audience of her own?

    She’s actually so ignorant that she thinks anyone who can read is brilliant….

    Amber doesn’t need to be nice to anyone now, she got what she wanted.She thinks being with Depp, she is protected. WRONG!!!! She is going to crash and burn with this new attitude.

    Even her hardcore lesbian fans are disapointed that she keeps telling the same stuff over and over again for the past ten years.
    The woman obviously has nothing to say, no good story to tell.
    It’s the first time that she’s given face time on television like that and PR is desperately trying to create an image for her they can build on. Problem is and will be: She can’t act! Allthough i’m not sure that talent and ability is what counts nowadays, you need to be sellable to the masses and JD is giving himself away to set the stage for her.
    It’s a shame, but this is how it works.

    So karma, you are saying that Johnny is burying his career. A career that is being compared to the “greats” of Hollywood. A true talent! (Even the greats took on some bad projects) So that the public is now going to be subjected to a no talent face that can’t act her way out of a paper bag (or a sack dress). So we get LESS Johnny and MORE of her. NOW I AM PISSED!!!
