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.”

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

  • Liz

    Whatever Amber….

  • jeannifer

    bitch please… you’re always seen with deep!

  • cat

    name a good movie she’s done? “artist”.. go away yo pretentious twit

  • Anonymous

    @Crissy:
    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.

  • Crissy

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

  • Anna

    “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.

  • FlameSoop

    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!!!

  • mimi

    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.

  • Avmir

    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!

  • soldier

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

  • Nanny

    @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.

  • SHINE

    product of a casting couch…

  • karen

    She is a homewrecker ,she has not artistic sensibility.Also amber and johnny arent so “private”.They went to many places with paparazzi and they know it.

  • cute

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz she is trashy, terrible actress and a fam3wh0re!

  • Fly

    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

  • Avmir

    @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:

  • liz

    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

    @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

    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.

  • ILse

    Amber is a beautiful woman ,pretty face but horribles legs

  • Alex

    She looks stunning and the interview is great. People are just jealous of her, stop being so bitter and get a life.

  • shockadelica

    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!

  • lol

    “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

    @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

  • VIP

    I think she seems genuine and truthful but he is twice her age and creepy to boot!

  • Paul

    Wow! What a trainwreck interview. This woman is really deluded. she has been the eyecandy in a couple of B-movies and she thinks she is an artist.

  • zara

    she dont like me but said “she want to be an artist ” no she is………

  • Redder

    ^^^^^^ go back and cry over your ice cream ladies, you are never gonna be as hot as that one

  • Ann

    you HATERS please grow up, get a life or do something other than bitchin’ other people. shame on you. you guys don’t even know her. everyone knows not to trust the media especially when it comes to celebrity. Please put yourself on the other person shoes before you talk trash on them. Or maybe u guys don’t care coz u do like it when people talk bad about you and call u whore.

  • sunshine63

    Oh Please! if it weren’t for the fact she is banging Depp the magazine wouldn’t of given her the time of day. Her movies stink. All she seems to do in them is take her clothes off. I can’t wait until this relationship is over. Then we’ll see how many magazine’s want to interview her then!

  • http://johnny-depp.org JDF

    @lol: you can’t wait until they break up? seriously get a life because you know nothing about their relationship and they are together since 2 years not 2 months so they are pretty serious about each others. keep hating because they couldn’t give a rats about you.

  • http://johnny-depp.org JDF

    @sunshine63: you can’t wait until this relationship is over? and why do you even bother reading about amber? they won’t break up anytime soon they’ve been together since 2 years not 2 months to break up in any sec!

  • lol

    everytime a celebrity talks about wanting privacy, i will never buy that! It’s always the opposite. Famewhores will only talk about ‘wanting privacy’. why would u talk about wanting a privacy when you really want privacy. You’re just drawing more attention to yourself.

  • Jadin Jones

    unbelievable!!
    Im a bit P O’d that she thinks we are all stupid! Her uh “art” is playing the main male characters play thing in every movie. That all, that’s the extent of any ART she has done.
    When she can get roles like Jennifer Lawrence , then she can talk, until then she should shut up and just stand there and be the pretty girl.
    She spews out all these thoughts on not wanting to be a celeb, those are Johnny’s feelings, and have been all his life. She just says it cause she knows it’s what he wants to hear. She is a Hollywood plastic liar.

  • Jadin Jones

    @Avmir:

    so why lie? be honest, be yourself,
    what good are you if you just become what your partner wants.

    she tries to come off as a strong independent, but uses Johnny’s thoughts and feelings.. so she is nothing but a phony
    simply using JD’s fame and status to further her career

    while on set of Paranoia, she complained to JD about her small crappy trailer, JD made a phonecall, and next day she had a luxury trailer….. PHONEY spoiled child. is all she is

  • Venezia_Italia

    Ohhhhh Pleaseeeeeeeeee….Good Lord…..!!!!!!!! Good sense is highly required here!!!!!

  • http://johnny-depp.org JDF

    @Jadin Jones: using him to further her career? he really didn’t help career at all, he is getting her roles with big studios and she just got a bad reputition of a home wercker because of his spilt with vanessa and i think she know all of that but she don’t care because she loves him and want to be with him

  • Kaboo

    darling, you can’t be brangelina, because angie gots talent and you don’t and will never have. angelina does charity, something that you don’t know anything about. angelina is humble, something that’s too big for you. so, shut your mouth and walk smiling (that’s all you’re good for by the way)

  • Venezia-Italia

    Why the hell does she need to compare herself to Angelina Jolie???????
    Angelina Jolie is 10000000000 times better than Amber!
    and above all Angelina is a Woman….with Capital Letter and in all !
    Where’s Jonhnnnyyyyy????????
    Johnnnnyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy !!!??????????
    this situation is getting worse and worse…… :-( :-( :-(

  • Avmir

    @Jadin Jones: You read too much tabloids, isn’t it? (the crap about the trailer, etc)

    Anyway, what is your problem? do you don’t understand the difference between “influence” and “lying”? I’m talking about the INFLUENCE of Johnny on her.
    And mentioned the INFLUENCE of Brando, Hunter S. Thompson, Pacino, Keith Richards in Johnny…it’s Johnny lying any time that he mention whatever he learned from them? when he applies some lesson taught by Brando? NO, he is not lying, he learned from them. He was influenced by them

    I’m saying the same about Amber. She had her vision about the world from far before Johnny is in her life (if you did read her old interviews, before she’s dating him, it’s your fault not mine) but now she seems to be delimiting also her vision about what she want for her career and that part seems pretty INFLUENCED by him…it’s that so hard to understand?

  • Avmir

    @Avmir: Sorry, i mean if you DIDN’T READ her old interviews it’s your fault

  • Venezia-Italia

    AVMIR…are you talking to me???????
    I dont understand

  • Venezia-Italia

    ………Excuse me…..????…where’s ART here???
    which kind of ART is SHE talking about??????????

    where’s JOhnnnyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy??????
    Johnnnnnnyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy????????
    we gotta talk urgentlyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!

  • brenda

    Haters for everywhere.first @26..Johnny is twice her age but he is still a hot guy..face it.Second..Like I say before..I don’t like her but I like to say the true,..Amber doesn’t want to be compare with Brangelina..because Brangelina LOVES Cameras,love THE FAME and love the paparazzies..that’s why they are SO different ..by the way ..”the Journalists are comparing them..not her! And Amber is More beautifull than Angie and more YOUNG..deal with it haters! Just saying…

  • brenda

  • sunshine63

    @JDF: JDF aka johnnydepp.org! My opinion is MY opinion and I don’t give a rats ass about you or your website.

  • Venezia-Italia

    HATERS????? HATERS?????? where are the HATERS???????
