Amber wanting better Roles

30 Nov

Remember the last few interviews. Amber Heard mentioning how hard it is to break free from the sexy girlfriend kind of roles.  It’s sooooo difficult.  Enter the  interview BEFORE the last 2 years. LOL

Amber Heard Fine With Roles Requiring ‘Not Enough Clothing’

In next month’s the planned Hunter S. Thompson biopic, The Rum Diary, Amber Heard plays Johnny Depp’s love interest, continuing her streak of roles that require very little clothing. But the actress, best known for playing the girlfriend of Seth Rogen’s character in Pineapple Express, isn’t afraid of getting typecast as “the naked girl.” “Some of my films have required more nudity than others,” she explained yesterday at Fashion Week’s Diesel Black Gold presentation. “But I’m not in a conservative industry and I don’t want to cater to the conservative thought that if I do a nude scene then I’ll be forever damned into a certain category.”

She continued: “I think it’s important to take all sorts of roles, and I, as a performer, don’t shy away from those that require me to wear certain kinds of clothing or not enough clothing. For as long as I can be typecast, quote-unquote, as the sexy girl, I’ll be thankful for it because the day will come when I can no longer play those roles, and then I won’t.” Heard also denied reports that Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley shied away from the role because of all the nudity it entailed. “No, that’s not true. That’s actually not the case at all.”

    It’s interesting to me, that Keira would want that role….. she had already worked on bigger projects both in America and Europe. Any thoughts or opinions? No big deal really. I’m kinda glad she didn’t do that role. It would be a little weird to watch w/ her work on POTC; not suggesting she would be able to fulfill the role, it would be interesting to see her take on it……
    just don’t know about a heavy make-out scene though. Maybe that’s why she wasn’t picked?….
