Amber Heard Talks Private Johnny Depp Relationship with 'Flare'

Amber Heard Talks Private Johnny Depp Relationship with 'Flare'

Amber Heard strikes a pose on the cover of Flare magazine’s September 2013 issue.

Here’s what the 27-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On keeping her relationship with Johnny Depp private: “It’s not part of my professional life. I want to be an artist. I don’t want to be a celebrity…You can find pictures of me [on the Internet] pumping gas, picking up dry cleaning, walking my dog, but nowhere are you going to find pictures of me hanging around at some nightclub…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 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.”

On her film Paranoia with Liam Hemsworth: “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.”

On how she chooses a role: “[The script] doesn’t say that these characters are ‘sexy.’ I’m not picking them because of that. I take roles that are interesting, and scripts that have female characters with depth.”

    The power of boning Depp. Did any magazines give her covers for her numerous flop films or TV shows before?

    Those men mag covers were probably playing on her sexuality/bisexuality angle no doubt, like Disney C list starlets, (as opposed to good film projects) an angle Amber seems to disavow now.
    And no those mags did not get much play not here or on other blogs. This Flare magazine (a cover she would never have gotten without the Depp association) has already been seen everywhere and about for guess what yet another flop movie/performance.

    @Anonymous: Yes! She was in several covers before (Maxim, FHM, Women & Health, etc. etc)

    “Artist” girl please ! Amber is only speaking this way because she is now dating Depp. She thinks if she talks like she is Meryl Streep people will think she is Meryl Streep. I saw The Rum Diary and Amber’s role could have been played by any “hot” under 25 year old. In a few years time she will struggle to get the hot girl roles because she has been replaced by a woman 10 years younger than herself. Once that happens she will have nothing.

    an ‘artist’??? she may check the dictionary before using this word. why she’s always using others celebrities names in her later interviews? wants some intrigue to born here? she does not like to be seen going in clubs but she’s mega pictured with her sugar daddy on restaurants, museums etc. this girl is not smart at all. if you try to lie and pretend to not care about fame she should prepare her words and ideas better for when she talks. fame W.H.0.R.E!!!

    She plays the Hollywood fame game like everyone else, better than most perhaps because she’s not overexposed, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know how to dole out her interviews, photo ops with Depp, etc when it suits her.

    She’s been very influenced by Johnny.
    The things she says about want to be an artist, are the same things he said. And it’s nothing weird, he is her partner and also Johnny was in the same position than her at her same age.
    He also was the extremely pretty boy locked in the role of teen idol an trying his best to come out of “21 jump street”, when nobody believe in his talent (at the same age than Amber) and he said he wanted to be seen as an “artist” he also was named as “pretentious”.
    I give to her the benefit of the doubt!

    I just don’t see it. She looks just like any other plain blonde. Dime a dozen. Overrated.

    @Avmir: you’re right. he may tell her what to say. probably all the magazines interviews from the last months are paid by him. also this idea of ‘privacy’ is so fake. he told her to say all this because everybody is blaming her of using him for fame (and is true, for sure) so he told her to pretend like she hates all this, just like him. the only thing about what you said is that johnny has talent and always had even when he was on her age. but amber is completely talentless. probably soon he will find her some big movies or jobs and she will show again that she’s just a bimbo, with no talent.

    oh brother. if she’s calling herself an artist then that the h.ell is Meryl Streep or Kate Winslet? she got no talent , makes crappy movies, all she’s doing now is banging and please sexual depp and she’s named an artist. what a smart mistress. sometime kipping your mouth close is smarter. just shut up girl and give good b.l.ow jobs to your papa-johnny and you may get some money

    @Nanny: No, i’m not saying he tells her what to say…I’m saying he’s influencing her and that’s quite different…
    Reading the whole interview it’s pretty obvious she’s very smart and clever, so she doesn’t need him to speak by herself.
    But she’s been influenced by him, probably in the same way that he was influenced by Marlon Brando or Hunter S. Thompson and their way to see the life and the profession…
    I don’t know what could happen with them in the future, but I’m sure that she’ll remember him with a big relevance on her world by the things he taught her…

    And by the way, this is the whole interview. and say what you want about her talent or whatever, but she’s really clever no wonder why Johnny is with her:

    I didn’t know who this h o bag was until I heard that Johnny Depp left classy Vanessa Paradis for her. Shame on men and their midlife crisis. Always leaving the mother of their kids to be with a younger woman.

    Nanny Says:

    @Avmir: are you serious? maybe the author of that article is smart not her? what’s smart in what she’s saying? she actually contradicts herself. she tells that she didn’t want anything that hollywood means when she was at school, but at 16 she left and come to LA for acting???

    Sue Says:

    An artist? Is she serious? She has absolutely no talent. She is a terrible actress. Can’t stand this woman. The only reason anyone is interested in her now is because she is with Depp. Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame while you can Amber because sooner or later he’s going to dump you for another girl just like he dumped Vanessa for you. What goes around comes around.

    Wow why all the hate! She calls herself an “artist” and people think she’s as untalented as Kim Kardashian?! Every actor/actress calls themselves an “Artist”! Look @ any interview almost any actor has done! and Johnny Depp made the final choice to pick her to act along side him in The Rum Diary! Not bad for somebody who’s a terrible actress huh? And once Johnny didn’t leave anybody they broke up! Two weeks ago she seen with Johnny and his kids looking very happy and comfortable together! Why would these kids want to be around this woman is she really broke up their happy family? They would hate here Believe it or not people break up everyday without fake scandals! If they’re happy together and love good for them! Unhappy people can’t just wish people the best. Instead have to speculate and talk down about people we don’t know! Stop all that hatin’ and go get you some happiness!

    “Doesn’t want to be a celebrity” yet agrees to photoshoots, glams herself up for events, does mainstream movies, etc. Such a pretentious twit. She thinks she’s so mature.. can’t wait until this ridic relationship crashes and burns

    lol Says:

    @shockadelica: he picked her because she was the most attractive to him. You think it’s a coincidence they ended up hooking up? He knew from the start
