Amber Heard covers i-D mag while Johnny Depp keeps interrupting interview

Amber Heard

Amber Heard is still promoting Paranoia, so she covers the September issue of i-D magazine in a spread that is — at the very least — more interesting than her recent Flare cover issue. For i-D, Amber is temporarily back to blonde while looking enigmatic behind her mass of hair (remember, she’s an artist, not a celebrity) and also taking time to whimsically dangle from street lights. I used to wear this same Batman shirt all the time in the 1990s. Nice calf muscles.

Amber Heard

Once again in this case of an up-and-coming actor, this magazine shoot isn’t really what we’re here to talk about … nor is the interview, per se. Instead, we’ve got a bit of an Elsa Pataky situation going on here. But in an amusing twist, it’s not Amber who is acting like else Elsa here. It’s her man that does so. The interview takes place by phone, and the journo explicitly mentions that he keeps hearing “a sleepy, familiar voice” that repeatedly pulls Amber away from the (professional) conversation at hand, and “the man rudely interrupting is Johnny Depp.” So much for Amber’s desire to keep her professional and personal lives separate, right? Here are some excerpts:

Don’t ask about Johnny: “I have to fight, tooth and nail, everyday, for my private life.”

She’s always been an outsider: An openly bisexual, drug-curious, fashion-conscious atheist, inspired by Ayn Rand and George Orwell, she did not blend naturally with the “deeply conservative Southern ideals” of rural Texas. “My father didn’t raise me to be a damsel,” she explains. She started “swinging hard” against her youth, and turned against religion after her best friend died in a car crash at 16. “Texas wasn’t the ideal place to express individualism. I was always told what a woman should be. I realised I was alone, that I didn’t belong there. I felt like I was dying creatively. I craved a place where I could express myself.”

She moved to LA at 17: “I just couldn’t stay in Texas, so I took off. I moved to New York, I travelled Europe, I worked with a fake I.D. It was blind bravery and ignorance. I just wanted to hear the word ‘no.’ By the time I got to LA, I knew nobody, I had no money, I could carry all my possessions on my back. When I think of it now, it seems scary. But I loved it. I had no responsibilities, and I felt incredibly liberated. That was ten years ago. I guess that means I’ve been doing this job, and nothing but this job, for a solid ten years. Wow, where did all that time go?”

[From i-D magazine]

Ten years, huh? I guess by looking at Amber’s IMDb profile, it’s clear that she has been pounding the pavements for that long, but she’s yet to really have a breakthrough role … unless one counts being Johnny Depp’s girlfriend as just that. Does that sound cynical of me to say?

In other Amber-related news, she also told Yahoo! that she’s pretty physically active but never sets foot in a gym. Oh, they all say that stuff, but I do admire Amber’s ability as a chameleon. She manages to change her look often and at times seems almost unrecognizable. If she lasts in Hollywood, that could be a great asset.

Amber Heard

Oh, and for the record, I agree with Kaiser about Amber’s Vionnet gown at the Paranoia premiere. This is an awful look for a leading lady.

    This is why she keeps getting asked about her personal life. Because it does not butt out of her professional one. But props to her for being open about her atheism – that’s a lot more controversial and potentially troublesome than bisexuality, in this day and age.

    PS – I feel like we’s love this Vionnet gown on Blanchette.

    • Cupcake says:

      Why would atheism be a problem?

      • Maria says:

        Probably because folks think those of us who don’t believe in god are immoral (especially in the south).

        As for the rest the article:

        Lawd, the amount of smoke she’s blowing up her own ass in this ._. I mean, we’re pretty much one of the same (minus the Rand nonsense) but she acts as if she was dying here in Texas….

        All she had to do was take her happy ass to Austin and she would’ve been in good company; I’ll give her props for going to Europe tho.

        I still cannot place her from ANY movie, her face doesn’t stick out—I hope she enjoys her fifteen minutes and Johnny’s dong because she isn’t going to last.

      • bbb1975 says:

        It shouldn’t be a problem but it can be for sure. As soon as someone hears a person is atheist they start trying to “cure” them or “save” them. Its a very big hot button. Its irritating.

      • Anna says:

        Religion is often part of the brand, and in the US in particular the good Jesus-loving, church-going image goes a long way . It plays particularly well with what Lainey dubbed the Minivan Majority – their poster girls ReeseW and JenniferG mastered it.

        Think of all those purity pledges by pop stars, and invocations of Christian imagery in country music, and all the Oscar speeches thanking God. In politics (which is a game of celebrity as well now) proclaiming oneself an atheist would put an end to any kind of a national career. So to openly proclaim herself an atheist, especially for an actress who is likely to get cast as a Love Interest (and thus has to have some appeal to that Minivan Majority, to upgrade from just eye candy), it’s pretty ballsy.

      • Spooks says:

        I am catholic ( a very liberal and left leaning catholic, but still) and have a lot of atheist and agnostic friends and acquaintances. And I have never seen a religious person to try and cure an atheist, but I have been told that I am dumb by atheists because I believe in God.

        I don’t get why this is a problem with her. We have many atheist actors round here and no one cares. Heck, we’re an almost 90 percent catholic country with an agnostic president and an atheist prime minister. Personal beliefs are personal beliefs.

      • Anna says:


        I know a lot of Catholics and in my experience most of them have been a lot more relaxed and open-minded about other religions and religiosity (or lack thereof) than some Protestant churches, esp American Evangelical (which I belonged to for an extended period of time). But this is less about curing/saving someone, and more about branding – and in the US market in particular, atheist and agnostic are often synonymous with ‘Godless Heathen Damning America to Hell.’ This doesnt quite help in the likability/ marketability of a public person. It is indeed very different in other parts of the world (not sure where you’re writing from, my guess is France), where agnosticism can be seen as a virtue, as a sign of pragmatic intellectualism. Anyway, a personal belief is no longer personal when you make it part of the public brand that you’re selling.

      • Spooks says:

        @Anna, I’m from Croatia.
        The Catholic Church has quite an influence here, but not nearly as extreme as in America. At least I think so. Pretty much the only dispute the Church has with the government are gay rights, and that is partially because our past has been very difficult so that the gay rights movement started in the late 90s so it’s still new to people.

        When I read about US politics i is quite shocking that a country so developed can have politicians on a national level that for an example don’t believe in the evolution (which would be ridiculed here) etc.
        Then again, it appears to me that a politicians personal life matters much more in the US. I’m not sure how many children our prime minister has. I don’t care if he’s an atheist or not. I don’t care if he has a mistress. As long as he gets the job done. Our former prime minister was a divorced single mother ( and head of the biggest right wing party ) and no one cared.

      • Annabelle says:

        I went to college in Tennessee, and whenever I told anyone I was atheist I would get some variation of “I’ll pray for Jesus to come into your heart and life.” That’s not a joke. To this day, one of my sorority sisters still emails me daily devotionals in the hopes of saving my soul (as she sees it, I guess). I think it goes both ways and has more to do with people not respecting an individual’s rights to their own beliefs.

      • Anna says:

        @Anabelle –
        I had similar (not quite as blunt or frequent but still) experiences in New England bc I was the wrong kind of Christian (baptized/raised Russian Orthodox).

        @Spooks -
        Dangit, should have done more research! But yes, in American politics a personal brand matters a whole lot. Often it’s not even about big ticket items like religion or relationships. It’s about ordering a proper cheese steak in Philly and drinking the kind of beer or playing a certain kind of sports. It’s ridiculous. And yes, anti-intellectualism, down to denial of evolution and global warming and conception from rape – is often a virtue, not a vice.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I’m a former Catholic (I’m a practicing Green Witch and have been for almost 20 years) and I have found that the Catholic Church is actually one of the most tolerant of other religions/beliefs.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I’m wondering where she was from in Texas. I mean, you’re going to find extremists on both sides wherever you are, so I don’t get her comment as to why she had to get out of Texas, because of the conservatives. Why didn’t she just say she wanted to travel and see the world beyond her limited scope?

      • bbb1975 says:

        @Spooks…I’m sorry someone called you dumb. I’ve have had many religious people try to convert, cure and save me over the years. I agree with you personal beliefs are personal beliefs. I guess there are extremists on both sides of this.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I honestly think it depends on where you live, as to whether or not someone will call you dumb or not for believing in God.

        Where I live, that’s the norm. There are lots of churches around (Catholic and Lutheran mostly-lots of Finns), but generally if you try and talk about God outside of a church, you won’t get a favorable reception.

        As for myself, I’ve always felt very uncomfortable sharing my beliefs with anyone, just in general conversation, because my experience with religion/faith outside of the church is kind of met with derision. People get offended really easily, I suppose. I think it’s dumb, we should all learn to respect each other. I’m tired of one side saying to the other that you have to not say anything wrong about my beliefs, while I trash yours and vice versa. It happens everywhere.

        Where there is a demographic that bashes the “right”, so to speak, there’s one doing the exact opposite in some other town.

      • bbb1975 says:

        I agree with you Virginia….I don’t talk about my non-religious beliefs anymore. It causes to much controversy. I truly respect other peoples beliefs (I married a religous man!) My parents are religious. I’m not. In my small slice of the world I don’t get the same respect.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:


        I think our experiences come from our own slice of life, and that’s how we react to certain things. Obviously if you were not religious, but grew up in a religious area, then you would feel left out and isolated. You feel different from everyone else, in a bad way, and feel like they’re just trying to shove their particular brand of religion down your throat.

        It’s the exact opposite where I live. There are churches yes, but there are also a TON of drunks where I live (I live in a VILLAGE, and there are three bars, right in a row, on our main street), and religion isn’t something that you really talk about to anyone that isn’t your family. I feel the same way you do, although I will never be the whole “I need to save the Earth, one track at a time” person, I do have beliefs that I’m sure a lot of people would disagree with.

        You feel (I’m projecting) like you can’t talk about your beliefs in the same way that I feel. At least that’s what I think.

      • Anna says:

        I am also intrigued by the invocation of Ayn Rand. Randian philosophy, and esp economics, have become THE defining non-religious ideology of the political conservatives (see: Ryan, Paul). Not so out of place in Texas, really.

      • Xera says:

        It looks like she would have used the same simplistic narrative if she originated from any other non coastal state. She doesn’t seem too subtle and expresses herself in cliches. The need to present herself as this fierce character shows she is both insecure and a legend in her own mind

      • Lauren says:

        I’m wondering why she felt so ill-at-east in Texas because of conservatism if one of her favorite authors is Ayn Rand?

      • Drea says:

        @Lauren: Because Ayn Rand was extremely hostile to religion and especially biting about Christianity.

        Rand described conservatism as a philosophy that “that subordinates reason to faith, and substitutes theocracy for capitalism” – someone like Rand would be persona non grata among Texan Republicans.

    • bbb1975 says:

      @Anna, You said it better than I did.

      • TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

        Like the rest of her, her atheism isn’t profound or deep, just trendy; I’m astonished that in a century of giant intellects, Einstein, Russell, Whitehead, Karl Popper, L. Wittgenstein, etc, an insignificant obscurantist like Ayn Rand, who is utterly ignored in the real scholarly intellectual world, has become a touchstone for so many. She’d be nobody if she wasn’t hanging onto Depp’s you know what.

      • Kiddo says:

        @TheOneAndOnlyOnly, I can’t speak for this woman, but not all people base beliefs or non-beliefs on trends. That is plain silly and condescending.

    • carol says:

      Is atheism really that controversial still? I’m surprised she hasn’t grown out of the Ayn Rand stuff yet though

    • TrustMOnThis says:

      Vionnet is probably rolling in her grave over that thing!

  2. QQ says:

    Yep, Johnnie Depp Midlife Crisis Ken, role, counts, thats the only thing that’ll gove her a career

    • bleh bleh says:

      what has he done that makes him look like if he’s going trough a mid life crisis? breaking up with his girlfriend just like any other normal human beings?

      • Rose says:

        What makes her think he’s going through a mid life crisis?????? He’s 50 and dating a girl that is one half his DAUGHTERS age! She even looks a bit like LilyRose….that’s sick. Seems even ashamed to be standing right beside her when they’re out, and won’t acknowledge that he dates her and you ask what makes her think he’s in a mid life crisis?

  3. lady_luck says:

    I just cannot stand this woman. She is becoming more obnoxious, arrogant and completely self-mystified by the minute.

  4. Agnetha says:

    I wonder if she’ll have a baby with Johnny or if she really does want to focus on her career.

  5. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Ugh, Johnny Depp wtf is wrong with you? Go with one or the other. Either get some young thing that is a blatant fameho and ain’t ashamed of her game, or go with someone who doesn’t want to be seen with you in public, but will be your girlfriend in private (like ME! I’m available!-if you can manage to keep the accessories down to single digits).

    None of this fake famewhoriness business—
    AMBER: “Oh, I’m such an ARTISTE! I don’t want to talk about how I’m dating Johnny Depp, star of such cinematic classics such as, “Sleepy Hollow”, “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Finding Neverland”–Oh, I’m sorry, what was I talking about? Oh, yes. I’m an ARTISTE! It doesn’t matter who I date because my ten years of film work speaks for itself! I have been in such classics as “Zombieland”, “Machete Kills”, “Drop Dead Sexy”, “The Stepfather”, and “The Rum Diary”-where of course, I met my dear Johnny, but of course, I don’t talk about that. What were we speaking of again?

    Because guess what? If this had been a normal job interview, she would’ve moved to the next room over or went downstairs so the person interviewing her didn’t get annoyed and hang up–which probably would’ve happened in the real world.

    But whatevs. I’m more intent on climbing Liam Neeson like a tree (quit literally, I’m not even 5’2″) and wrecking HIS sweetshop, than I am about Depp’s midlife crisis bottle blonde….unless of course that B starts making eyes at Gary Oldman during the premieres of this stupid movie. If that happens, I’m taking her down.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Oh, blue marie, you don’t know the half of it. As I said on the Julia Roberts thread yesterday, I don’t know wtf she was thinking. All I know is that if I had an opportunity to ride the Neesondong, I’d be all over that like white on rice. I’d climb him like a tree…he’d have to use a crowbar to pry me off one of his legs (drools ;) ) I’d NEVER let that go…ever. Oh well, more for me.

        Liam is my forever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever dong. Always. He’s such a sweetheart. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a bad thing about him, not even anything from when he was the town ho. No stories about him treating women like crap.

        All I want to do is make him smile again, he seems so broken after Natasha died. Of course, however I get that smile on his face is fair game, right? (think naught thoughts, think naughty thoughts, think naughty thoughts….)

    • Jennifer says:

      Thank you for giving her a voice. LOL

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Honestly, I think that’s what she’s thinking. That she’s so amazeballs, that it’s only a bonus that she’s dating Johnny. I actually liked it, in the beginning that she was really low key about it. If any celebrity (read:Liam) wanted to date me, that’s how I would play it. Show up as his date, not at the red carpet, and otherwise be his arm candy. Seen but not heard. Especially if I was in the same business, because I would be terrified if people thought I was a fameho. I mean posts like this would upset me if I ever read or heard about them.

        But nooooo, she decides to work the whole “I’m an ARTISTE schtick”, without actually putting any effort into her job. I’m sure that if she really wanted, and really had the chops for it, she could’ve done at least ONE movie where she wasn’t the basic hot blonde. At least one. But she’s done nothing of note–all I will say is that what little I saw of Rum Diary (it was boring as eff), I thought she and Johnny had great chemistry–but nothing in that movie really required her to be more than the hot chick.

        I don’t see her being with him for much longer; I think he will eventually dump her. The only couple I can think of with such an extreme age diff….funnily enough is Gary Oldman and his hot wife, Alexandra. I really like her because (I think) it’s clear on her face that she really loves him….I love the way they smile at each other. And she doesn’t try to use him for publicity.

  6. don't kill me i'm french says:

    Finally it’s Depp the problem because she always worked since 10 years and here it’s the clue of middle crisis life

  7. pink says:

    ew individualism and ayn rand yucky. now i’m even less of a fan of hers. people pretending ayn rand is intellectual. lol

  8. Viola says:

    I like her best of all Johnnys girls. I’m not crazy for the Rightwinger vibe she puts out but I am taking a wait and see approach.

  9. lady_luck says:

    Here’s a thought, Amber: maybe if you had kept or held some of the more traditional texan values that you seem to despise, perhaps you would have had more of a conscience about wrecking a home? But I suppose that is a very liberal, “free loving” thing to do, right? (rolls eyes)

  10. Kiddo says:

    I know you don’t want to talk about the shoot, but egads. They were going for some type of urban land nymph, but the compositions are terrible, and she comes across as a drug addled street lunatic. Also, Johnny Depp acting like a svengali during her interview only reinforces the gossip notion that her fame is only a byproduct of keeping his company and not on her own merit.

  11. ClaireB says:

    Reading the “By the time I got to LA, I knew nobody, I had no money, I could carry all my possessions on my back. When I think of it now, it seems scary. But I loved it.” (and everything else actually) I kinda understand how it would have been appealing to someone like JD, who had a similar experience.

  12. Tessa says:

    I think she’s LYING through her teeth about how she ended up in LA. She makes it sound like she hitchhiked there with a stick and a sack thrown over he shoulder.

    More likely? She was scouted as a model as a teen like so many others, and ended up with an acting agent. They usually put you up in an apartment and give you a living allowance while you try to book work. It’s not the starving artist romantic lifestyle she wants to sell, but I bet you a million bucks it’s closer to the actual truth.

  13. aang says:

    wait, the woman in the blue dress isn’t scarlett johansson?

  14. bns says:

    LOL at Johnny Depp pulling strings to get his new girlfriend all of these magazine features.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      See, if she had been an established actress, you know, not the #HOTBLONDEWITHBOOBS in every single movie I’ve ever seen her in, then I would have no problem with this. In fact, I would think that it was sweet and cute. But you can’t go around saying you don’t want to talk about a relationship, and then pull something like this. She could’ve left the room, and went somewhere quiet. She didn’t. Actions speak louder than words.

      What especially bothers me is that she’s trying to act like she’s actually wanting to keep it out of the press. I think the only reason she isn’t going full tilt with this, is because Johnny doensn’t want her to, for whatever reason. But once she gets tired of him (if that’ll ever happen) or vice versa, then I have a feeling she’s going to go OFF.

  15. Cazzee says:

    Are her fifteen minutes over yet?

  16. j.eyre says:

    Is Paranoia any good? The only press I have heard on it is about Amber and Liam’s love lives.

    • MegG says:

      Dear Amber, All I want to know is how does someone get to date Crispin Glover? I don’t care about your interviews in which you say the same thing over and over again- that you want no one asking about Johnny Depp.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Is it really sure that they actually dated? I looked up pictures of them together, and the only ones I found were of them at the Beowulf premiere…there were three or four different pics, but she had the same dress on. All the rest of the pictures were either them separately, or her and Johnny during the promo of “The Rum Diary”.

        How long were they supposedly together?

    • Bijlee says:

      It’s gotten lousy reviews for now. Everyone is bemoaning the actors and calling Gary oldmans accent a geico gecko impersonation LOL! now I want to see it just for that.

  17. Melanie says:

    Why make the interview call with him at home and calling out to her the whole time? Just look what has captured the attention and you say you’re fighting not to be a celebrity??. Every attention seeking antic is around him and then the way she complains as if the whole world is out to harass her over her private life – She’s such a blatant and lame famewhore that it’s not even funny.

    Could he even have been aware of the stunt she was pulling? Johnny- the great enigmatic superstar- and now we’re getting a peek into his bedroom moanings for his D-list bimbo nobody. On the other hand why not announce her officially? Maybe then her famewhoring antics will be much less embarrasing. Depp is private about his relationships – but even when he was tight-lipped with Kate Moss- he didn’t hesitate to just mention her in the public. Same thing as Vanessa even as the media was scrutinizing her too-soon pregnancy. And even though he has been all respectful and lovely about his exes whenever he had to talk about it, he never dwelled on them for too long.
    So why all this ‘hiding’ with this new ‘trophy’ when he doesn’t seem to have problem talking freely about his ex?

  18. Tara says:

    I don’t understand why she became an atheist after her best friend died. Was the pain she felt a reason or did that pain trigger another reason. Because people die everyday not just the people you personally care about. And for every death there is a beautiful relationship begun, a day bathed in sunshine, a brand new baby to love and so on. So if you believed in God before how does that stop because you lise a loved one. There must have been another reason. I am not judging i just dont connect the two. If someone has made a similar experience or has an opinion on this i would like to hear more – without yelling, of course.

  19. Lara says:

    The only thing that stands in my mind is – Johnny Depp ‘interuppting’ you all sleepy and seductive.That’s an ‘annoyance’ I’m willing to put up with at any time & any place

    You see that’s the problem Amber, you’re not interesting even if an entire feature is about you. This is how you’ll end up if you’re a bland nobody who’s in news only for dating an all time sex-symbol superstar.Get serious about your image, gal. This whole ‘bombshell with guns and brains’ image is a boring joke.

  20. Kari says:

    She’s trying so hard to craft this rebel image, that she lies about the most simple stuff. She spent so many years famewhoring and posing for the paparazzi, that everytime she makes one of these declarative statements, there is so much photographic evidence to the contrary. The gym thing is a perfect example. She was just shot trying to “hide” her face while going. Why lie about that?
    And she’s so disrespectful to other actresses, her reputation must be horrid. The stuff she said about ScarJo (just from a professional perspective) was incredibly disrespectful.

    • Leah says:

      what did she say about scarjo?

      • Kari says:

        During TRD press tour, people were asking her why she thought she got the role over ScarJo and instead of being graceful:
        “She’s a good actress and I respect her, but I deserved to get the role instead of her.

        If I was going to lose to anyone, she would be a good person to lose to. But the part of Chenault called for an actress, not a famous person. I worked very hard to get the role I auditioned and wrote a letter to the producers and a director about my connection to the part.

        I’m a big fan of Hunter S. Thompson and an avid reader, so I had something special to offer beyond what was written on the page.”

        Maybe depends on interpretation, but I’ve seen far greater actresses be much more graceful in similar situations.

      • Kari says:

        ScarJo was supposed to get the role in TRD over Amber, but Amber went through some “special” lengths to get the part. When asked during promo why she thought she was more deserving of the part Amber said the role called for a real actress and not a “famous person,” referring to ScarJo. And then said she would be more capable of bringing more to the part than just what was written on the page, because she’s an avid reader!
        (I tried to link the article for you but it won’t go through moderation; maybe there’s a difference in interpretation)

  21. Amanda says:

    Oh, whine whine whine. You grew up as an atheist bisexual in the Deep South? So did I, but you don’t hear me talking about how terrible it as if I were a Holocaust survivor. What a whiner.

  22. TX Laney says:

    Somewhere out there, Vanessa Paradis is rolling her eyes….hard

  23. Dee says:

    Her 15 min should be over by now. Please dont make her a “thing” celebitchy. There are more accomplished, interesting, not to mention successfull actresses who arent getting anywhere near the coverage she is getting on this site. And if we are honest she is only covered because of depp. Please promote strong, talented women who doesnt ride the gravy train of an old famous actor. Its so depressing that women like this are becoming a fixture on this site. For my money she is not that different from the kardashians.

    • Xera says:

      I disagree, I see some craycray potential and fun interviews with her attempts to portray herself as some caricatural heroic character, she’s entertaining, she must stay

    • Amanda says:

      Maybe you should take another look at the name of this website and ask yourself what it means. What about a website called “CeleBITCHY” makes you think its purpose is to “promote” actresses? It’s a snarky gossip site, and that’s why people love it and keep coming back day after day. There are plenty of websites out there devoted to gushing over talented actors/actresses. Try Googling one.

  24. Xlara says:

    Johnny is stealing the limelight from her just to further his career. LOL!
    That would be what we’d be reading if it were her the one interrupting his interview with sleepy voice.

    LOL! at those comments about his interruptions and making it look like it was planned by her mastermind, as she or anybody could know when the other going to wake up or any of the haters here, could know if she was doing the interview in any room of her home. She might be doing the interview at the living room or an study, and Johnny interrupted trying to know what she was doing or asking for breakfast, or trying to make her come back to the bed, who knows? none of us can know!

    And about her modeling career. She was model in NYC very short time. She hated it. Johnny also modeled when he was young (he needed the money for his band) so nothing wrong with that

      Xera, she is not entertaining or cray cray. She is actually very cliched. Kstew also thinks she is an amazing actress and more real and edgy than any of her contemporaries come to think of it she also likes to hook up with older married men. She is also very keen on presenting herself as a well read “artist”. So we heard it all before.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Uhh, for all Johnny’s faults, he’s a professional. He’s not the one going around saying he doesn’t want to be linked to his girlfriend, but then find ways to make the connection i.e Amber’s interview on Fallon (or whatever show it was), they introduced her as ‘Johnny Depp’s girl’-yet she says she doesn’t want her personal life involved with her AAARRT.

      And the whole thing with her modeling days is that she’s trying to say that she was broke and poor when she got to LA and had absolutely nothing—-she didn’t. She may not have had much, but it wasn’t nothing. She’s acting like she walked from Texas to LA because Texas was smothering her AAARRT.

    I simply can’t believe this woman even gets press. Amazing how she doesn’t want to talk about Johnny but he puts up with every little piece of crap she spurts to the press. He probably helps her…..
    Seems she comes up with something new to feed the frenzy every time she’s interviewed. I also can’t believe people listen to it and get on this site and go back and forth about what this egg head states!
    I believe Johnny is feeding the frenzy too. He doesn’t believe in God either. I think that together they come up with these things and put them out there just to watch the posts blow up with “intelligent common people” giving them press. Wise up people. What REAL actress that you know portrays herself as a Texas hating, gun toting, bi-sexual, Artist? *eye roll* Now she’s an atheist? Seems to be working for her and Johnny. Getting them press right and left. They are both in on this “lead the fans around by the nose” fiasco. Otherwise, they would appear together and act somewhat normal. Something isn’t right about either of them. I used to be a fan of Depp’s but I’m changing my mind rather quickly now. What father of 2 influential kids does this to his family? Or fans? He doesn’t give a damn about either. He’s rich. He only cares about himself.

    I live in the Florida panhandle and have friends who have been verbally attacked and physically threatened in parking lots (Target, Walmart, restaurants…) for having bumper stickers about atheism, anti-oil drilling, Obama or pro-choice on their cars. It’s seriously wackadoo here. And yes, separate incidences of yelling and threats, in front of children even. That may not be the case in other parts of Florida, but it is in my community, which is a messed up blend of beach hippies and retired military. Never a dull day.

    Inspired by Ayn Rand? Better her than me.

  28. chaine says:

    Johnny Depp must be low on funds cuz this woman is definitely the poor man’s Scarlett Johannsen.

  29. Daria says:

    These pictures of her for that magazine are silly looking, not a fan of her, her “acting”, and her style is horrible. It’s all very clear as day she won’t be lasting long in Hollywood based on her acting alone. Johnny Depp needs to wake up and drop this fame hungry bore. Go back to Vanessa! (Or Winona, ha!)

  30. madchen says:

    Her ex-girlfriend is a photographer and a few years back, Amber did some nearly naked, very saucy shoots w/her, as well as a couple interviews to accompany them that extolled their exceptional relationship. It was a coming out of sorts and she was photographed on the red carpet of a few high profile LBGT events and got press about her great beauty and sexuality. Then, her career continued to go nowhere. Flash forward a couple years and it’s the same head banging on a different door. We’ll see how it works this time. Johnny needs to hire her a stylist though. She never looks good and that’s inexcusable.

  31. tealily says:

    I feel like I am completely alone on this, but I kind of love her! I even like her with Johnny. I remember first seeing her in some questionable Nic Cage vehicle and feeling like she was a complete stand out (WHO is this GIRL??).

    I think she’s a gorgeous (usually) blond who just happens to legitimately be a little off beat. I don’t think she’s going anywhere.

  32. LadyFauxReal says:

    I thought she was raised in Austin, one of the most liberal towns in America. There is even a billboard along the interstate advertising a national atheist convention. I lived in a very conservative somewhat rural suburb of Austin with a huge LGBT community so I have no clue what she’s going on about.

  33. iheartjacksparrow says:

    She seems like the epitome of a faceless actress. There’s nothing different about her; she’s like a hundred other blonde, pretty women. I honestly never recognize her in articles, and it’s not until I read the captions that I realize it’s Amber. I do hope Johnny gets over her soon.

  34. Jade says:

    ugh im so sick of depp and this ugly wanna be women! my mom thinks hes so cool gag me with a spoon!!!!! I agree with my hubby there both try hards!

  35. Miss M says:

    A walking (and talking) Hollywood cliche. *Not impressed*

  36. raindrop says:

    Looks like she was raised in Austin. So was I. In fact, we’re the same age – she’s two months older than I am. And I have to say … I absolutely loved growing up in Austin. It was (is?) an extremely open, accepting city, full of people from all different walks of life. I have a difficult time seeing how anyone could feel repressed there. Of course, perhaps it was her family that made her feel that way?

    • Meh says:

      She was raised in a Catholic family and went to a Catholic school, so of course she felt trapped by it

    • Texas Tiger says:

      I just read this and; usually never comment here, but when I read her comment that “she did not blend naturally with the “deeply conservative Southern ideals” of rural Texas.” and knew she was raised in freakin’ AUSTIN, I just had to give my two-cents.

      Even if she was raised Catholic, Austin is the most liberal city in the entire “deeply conservative” state of Texas.

      As a proud native Texan (born in Houston-far from the city whose motto is “Keep Austin Weird”), I’m sick and; tired of her making sure to include that she’s from here & how she just HAD to escape it b/c is was so horrible. Then in the next breath, constantly follows it with her absolute love of guns. Forever reiterating how much she’s a rebel (b/c-the other item always included-she’s a bisexual too).

      The girl needs to just stop. You don’t hear any other celebrity forever referring to the state they were born in every interview they give. It simply is not relevant. Stop bashing my state. You didn’t like it and you got out. Great, we’re aware of that since you’re in Hollywood. Most actors in Hollywood were born somewhere else and you don’t hear them mentioning it everywhere you go.

      She’s obviously proud she’s from here otherwise why bring it up at all? It doesn’t make you relevant or interesting to continually tell everyone that you were SO different and couldn’t fit it in in the state you were born it and just HAD to escape.

    • TexasTiger says:

      Totally forgot the other reason her statement is BS, the American Atheist headquarters is in Austin!! Madalyn Murray O’Hair obviously thought that Austin, TEXAS was “the ideal place to express individualism (as does pretty much everyone in Austin).

      Actually, the majority of Texans are very laid-back, friendly people. You can do whatever the hell you want to here & no one is going to persecute you for it. It only becomes a problem when you attempt to force your beliefs on us, then we shake our heads & walk away shaking our heads. It only becomes a problem if you follow & start insulting us (as it does in most places in the world)

    Every hipster in new york is wearing that batman shirt

  38. Really? says:

    What she fails to realize is that she’s shot herself in her pretty, manicured foot by teaming up with Depp.

    She could have been something interesting, now all she can do is backpeddle and try to divert attention from the fact that she’s fallen into an oh, so typical stereotype…

    We can understand and forgive it on a highly superficial, Hollywood level…

    But she is no freaking Cate Blanchett or Tilda Swinson, so she needs to give up that fantasy from the get go. I mean, who is writing her publicity right now? It seems like it’s actually she who’s doing it. Beautiful girl, it’s true, but i’d swear she was Megan Fox’s long lost cousin.

    One more thing, nice suicidal reference in the photo shoot, hanging from a tree…nothing’s shocking anymore in Hollywood, get that, but it’s just so utterly contrived now…kind of like Ange and her horse porn. It’s obvious that these “stars” are clearly only intersted in impressing one another in their tight circle jerk reality, we’re just the peep squad.

  39. Rose says:

    If Depp wouldn’t of brought her to the spotlight none of us would be talking about her. I think he loves this. I think half the time they both make this crap up to play with “fans” heads. I think they get off on this game.

  40. Karen says:

    Yeah yeah yeah, she is so smart because she is an atheist we get it. She is no Nathalie Portman. She is not an artist. She played a playboy bunny who almost got raped how is that empoyering ? She is joke. She is just a pretty blonde thats it.
    And she posted naked pictures of herself, talked about her private life and now she wants privacy ? Well she can have it. Who cares anyway.

  41. TexasTiger says:

    I first saw her when appeared on Top Gear as a “Star in the Reasonably-Priced Car”. I didn’t even know who the girl was, but my first thought halfway through the interview was that she was trying WAY too hard. I don’t even remember how many times she started a sentence with, “Well, being from Texas…”, that just bugged me (especially being a proud native Texan myself). And, of course, one of those sentences gave her the opportunity to say that it was that awful state she was born in that she acquired her love of guns (and of course, muscle cars). I don’t think she even mentioned any movies or tv shows she had been in, or even her modeling-which is what is what the interviews usually always start with, before moving to cars, naturally, since it IS a car show.

    She was a relative nobody at the time (only known for her bisexuality (and; good looks), and it was obvious she was trying really hard to related the above things to her to make herself stand out. Before I could say these things, the guy I was watching it with said essentially the same thing.

    Since then, I really can’t stand the girl. She might be a very sweet, but at the time it was just obvious she was at least trying to make herself famous for things that had nothing to do with her being “an artist”, and had everything with her wanting to be perceived as a rebel, wanting to show the world that she wasn’t just another pretty face. Every other celebrity that comes on the show is comfortable, laid-back and just being themselves. If they had done something not relating to acting (or whatever it is that they are famous for), it was for the most part things they had just done in their lives, not for things they had to interject into every. single. interview. She, on the other had, was clearly putting on an act.

    I’m really sure that you could probably create a drinking game while watching an interview with her, where you drink every time one of the above items is mentioned.

    Forgive me for the extended rant, but it feels good to get that off my chest!
