More from Flare Interview

31 Jul

Keeping her love life out of it has been a bit more irksome. For those who don’t get their news via TMZ or UsWeekly, Heard has been dating her Rum Diary leading man, Johnny Depp. She won’t discuss him directly: “It’s not part of my professional life,” she says firmly. “I want to be an artist. I don’t want to be a celebrity.” While she’s certainly not the first of her ilk to deliver the “Woe is me, I’m famous” speech, with Heard you get the sense that she might actually mean it: “You can find pictures of me [on the Internet] pumping gas, picking up dry cleaning, walking my dog,” she says, “but nowhere are you going to find pictures of me hanging around at some nightclub.”


Rasputins (Gay) NightClub Jan. 2013

About Syrup:

The movie, based on the 1999 Max Barry novel, is a modern-era morality tale about the advertising industry. Heard plays Six, the living embodiment of the “sex sells” concept

So much for a different role for Amber Heard

At dinner, most of her makeup is gone, the shoot’s elegant winter pales swapped for a more comfortable rocker-chick uniform of a black cotton tank, dark skinny jeans, leather booties and a few chunky rings. Heard is not keen to talk about her appearance, since doing so always seems to backfire, she says: “Someone will ask me a question about my looks, like something about my hair, and then in the magazine it sounds like I came in and said, ‘You know, what I’d really like to talk about is my hair.’”

No it’s okay because you usually just talk about how “gorgeous” you are.

Rappaport says he knew he had found his leading lady when he noticed Heard at a mutual friend’s birthday party. “She was holding court and there was this entire group of people, older people, who were just hanging on her every word,” he recalls. Heard was having a debate about the shelf life of female actors in the movie business. “Of course we can all name the exceptions,” she says, getting out in front of my knee-jerk reaction to cite Meryl Streep and Susan Sarandon and…Kate Winslet in 10 years. “We are both probably thinking of the same five women right now. Maybe not even five.”

WOW. Again she loves the attention. Still doesn’t sound smart though.

She launched a short-lived modelling career in New York, and hated it. “No one was interested in my opinion,” she says.

Awww. That’s too bad. They didn’t hang on your every word??? For shame!

Heard’s two new roles have her usual intelligent edge. Paranoia is a sleek, corporate espionage thriller about two rival tech companies. Heard plays Emma, a sarcastic, cutthroat Ivy Leaguer. “Paranoia was an interesting script. 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.” When I ask her if her characters use their beauty and sexuality as a form of power, she says it can be a challenge to find just the right role—especially in a Hollywood that is all too quick to typecast

Dealing with themes like greed and power. We speak about that which we know.

Does she find this funny or just annoying? “Well,” she says, “I’m laughing at you, aren’t I?” Such defiance could come off as bitchy, but Heard’s candour and quick wit are appealing.

No it’s bitchy. She was being a bitch. Nice save Mr. Journalist.

Heard can hold her own, and doesn’t seem so removed from everyday reality that she can’t empathize with the plight of a magazine journalist who has to at least try to get the goods. (It’s easy to see why He Who Must Not Be Named, himself a bit of a wild pony, would be drawn to her.)

Oh no, wait. That’s a new thing Mr. Journalist. She was all mouth and dropping hints, talking about whatever  a year ago. Don’t let her fool you, she’s just doing it because he who must not be named does it.

Heard says the scrutiny can be frustrating, but it’s totally out of her control. She shrugs: “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.” Let the bloggers post and tweet all they want: Like her classic muscle car, public displays of affection are, for Heard, non-negotiable.

Well you can come here and read the truth anytime you want Amber, and you have changed. From photos to speaking with the media. So now you’ve been caught in a lie. Remember..once upon a time you didn’t hide your face. Nice try though. About the non-negotiable displays of affection? Yeah we believe that, after all Johnny looks very uncomfortable in most of the photos with you, so I guess it was do it Johnny or else. I’m sorry Amber you still don’t have a magical Vagina. Johnny will find that out soon enough.

Heard is often seen in retro high-glamour fashion shoots, so we had stylist Erin Walsh tap into her looser, ’70s side instead: “soft colours, very Sharon Tate.

Ahhh so we’re doing a time period that has more in common with your beau. Of course Amber would be alright with that. Lesson: them dressing Amber up in more “mature attire” doesn’t fool anyone either.

The soundtrack, on the other hand, was up-to-date: Heard hand-selected The Black Keys, Jay-Z, Franz Ferdinand and Lil Wayne tracks, and lipsynched along between takes. Then, the near-unthinkable happened—the shoot wrapped a full hour early. The rare occurrence had a lot to do with our cover subject herself. “I didn’t have to tell her anything,” says Kurt Iswarienko, our photographer. “I just followed her around with a camera.”

There ya have it. She’s so use to the camera she didn’t even need help.

“but nowhere are you going to find pictures of me hanging around at some nightclub.”

    I’m sorry I’m still laughing over her comment ” I didn’t want to be a celebrity”

    God shes obnoxious. It sounds so rude and awful but I really hope that her career tanks and she goes back to being a nobody very very soon.

    I read the whole article, she is just mocking everyone, it is depressing. I like the bit where she says ,“You think I’m going to tell someone in the media my strategies for staying out of the media?”, Yeah right, what she really wanted to say is I only get photogaphed when I phone the paps and if you notice no photos of her going to the restaurant for the interview, strange, her phone must not be working that day. Her interviews are really showing her true colours. She just doesn’t care.

    Dear Mr. Journalist, let’s face it, you wouldn’t even have lead this poor interview, if the woman wouldn’t get f* cked by him who must not be named.

  5. HF July 31, 2013 at 3:11 pm #

    ” It’s easy to see why He Who Must Not Be Named, himself a bit of a wild pony, WOULD be drawn to her.”
    Does that mean that our journalist isn’t sure whether he who must not be named really IS drawn to her or not? Uups!

    Others around the web aren’t buying Amber’s bulls**t either…

    • jambernews July 31, 2013 at 7:15 pm #

      Oh that’s rich. Well guys it’s not just us here at Jambernews imagine that! LOL

  7. AmberWHO? July 31, 2013 at 8:47 pm #

    If you want to keep it private, then you keep it private you don’t drop cryptic hints that there IS a relationship that needs to be kept private and expect everyone to read into it, as she has done here and in other interviews. Of course that’s going to fuel a media blitz. She and her PR people are still using Johnny to get her name out there. And everything she does is for celebrity status. OH JOHNNY!!! WE ARE BEGGING YOU, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE OPEN YOUR F#@%-ING EYES, MAN!!! EVERYONE CAN SEE IT BUT YOU!!!

    Comments on dailymail and just jared aren’t buying it either and they usually really kiss her butt. Constantly saying how pretty she is and that everyone that says otherwise are just jealous haters. First time I’ve seen multiple posts on those websites of people calling her out. That pleases me.

    I finally went ahead and read the whole thing. These things stood out to me too
    “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.”
    Well you certainly do now don’t you? You’ve made mention of Lohan. The Kardashians. The Pitts. You speak a little like tabloid reading gossip site following fans. She probably googles herself. And stares at the pictures of her pumping gas, picking up dry cleaning, walking her dog and thinks to herself “I looked so good that day. So glad they made it in time after I called them”

    “As a teenager, she didn’t dream of becoming an actress so much as just getting out into the world.”
    Her dad said this:
    “She hardly does anything else, she wanted this for her career since she was 12-years-old, from the time she was a little girl.’ As he revealed Amber was always determined to become a star.”
    Her old friend said this:
    “I’m going to go and be an actress and that is what I want to do.”‘

    “Let the bloggers post and tweet all they want” She’s probably here now you guys…Wave or flip the bird or something..

    “Where some celebs would ask their publicist for extraction, ” Kind of Like Depp more than likely did. Put her on an off limits list. So no questions really came up. Perhaps she should try that if she’s so sick of people bringing him up in interviews. It would make the whole “private life” thing seem a bit more credible. Instead she allows it so she can mention him. But then lets be honest. She wouldn’t be on the cover if she straight up told the person not to mention Depp from the beginning. The interview probably would have stopped right there.

      LOL “Let the bloggers post and tweet all they want” She’s probably here now you guys…Wave or flip the bird or something.. That way funny M. I thought the same when I read that. Besides I thought she said there were better ways to torture yourself than to google yourself. Hmm

    That Daily Mail article is hilarious and pathetic at the same time. LOVED the side-by-side comparison pics of Amber as a child at the same time a very much grown Johnny was well established in his career and putting out some good films! Amber, 8th grade play – Johnny, Donnie Brasco. LMFAO. Also, I sort of feel for her father. Reading between the lines, It sounds like Amber was a spoiled child determined to get her way no matter what. Her parents were paying 12 grand a year for her education and I’m guessing would have paid for college too, what a slap in the face for her to quit at 16 leaving dad to beg for her to come home! Poor guy doesn’t even know what country she was in with Johnny, thought she was in China – and he says she only goes home “when she has to” and HE has to go to LA to visit HER – damn, girl, pretty cold if you ask me.

    • jambernews August 1, 2013 at 6:41 am #

      yeah she even gives him parts in her movies. Can’t say that’s paying him back but oh well. I too think she was a privileged child.

  10. AmberWHO? August 1, 2013 at 2:54 pm #

    So one article based on this interview is saying, they won’t become Brangelina, And that they won’t be seen out and about in Hollywood. Ummm too late…A/V club, Petty Fest, Roiling Stones concert and ARGO restaurant. Plus if they are not willing to be seen out, doesn’t that just CONTINUE the dirty little secret?
    So Amber, if you ARE reading this, if he doesn’t want to be seen out with you, he’s ashamed of you and the relationship you have. He didn’t have to hide with his other woman, just YOU!!! Why? Because your a brainless SKANK and a F#$K buddy!!! And we, the entire population, are ALL laughing at you!!! You are a huge JOKE!!!

  11. AmberWHO? August 1, 2013 at 2:56 pm #

    And just to make it clear, the places where we DID see them together, it is obvious to the intelligent public, that He Who Must Not Be Named, doesn’t want to be in public with you, Amber!!!

  12. CJsamone (@cjsamone) August 2, 2013 at 4:24 am #

    I’m sorry but ive gotta say it again, I wanna know when this chicks gonna pop? She is so full of shit, it’s seriously giving me gas. My ass is even heaving over this.
    What day does lucifer go to her trusty dry cleaners? I gotta have a talk with her.

    I wonder if anyone has went up to her yet & said “you do realize your lil sis lily acts older than you.”

  13. CJsamone (@cjsamone) August 2, 2013 at 4:23 pm #

    Funny how you can find stuff out of the ordinary… You almost wonder if the articles are done on purpose so it gets things stirring. Like she wouldn think shi* wouldn’t surface?!

    How many people are there really now that appreciate her work? I think the ones that are left are the new crowd. Her little sisters crowd/generation. They look up to lily, & her personal life. You have new generation that likes crap like this.
    Maybe i was in my own lil world. I remember at lilys age the monchichi’s & liked that. Hell, i’m 40 & still like it.

    Amber would probably have better luck if she did a remake to the 80’s movie “just one of the guys”.
    Actualy ah who am I kidding, she’d probably ruin the original make people not watch both.

    What is our world coming to. We won’t have anything to look fwrd to if she is our up & rising star. How dreadful.

  14. Kayla August 5, 2013 at 6:54 pm #

    Did anyone see the pix of Amber with the guys at the night club on Ummm thought we wouldn’t see any of that??? Really Amber?? do you think those pix won’t surface?
