People: Elon Musk loves Amber Heard’s ‘edginess’ but probably won’t marry her

amber elon

Last week, Elon Musk and Amber Heard became “official.” Amber is currently in Gold Coast, Australia, working on Aquaman, and Elon seemingly traveled there to see her. They got pap’d together and they made their couple-debut on each other’s social media. Elon and Amber have been circling each other for a while now. They reportedly met for the first time back in 2013, and Elon has always found her intriguing and beautiful. Some would even say he was “infatuated” with her. Reportedly, Amber played hard to get with him, which actually wasn’t that difficult considering she was first in a terrible marriage and then going through a bitter divorce. But still, questions remain – I guess? – about exactly when Elon and Amber really started hooking up, especially since he was still sort of married last year.

When Amber Heard is one day asked, ‘What first attracted you to billionaire tech magnate Elon Musk?’ I know how she will answer: his love of Shakespeare.

Tesla boss Elon, 45, took Amber to watch Romeo and Juliet at London’s Garrick Theatre six months ago – while he was still married to actress Talulah Riley. The 31-year-old Texan is reportedly telling anyone who will listen that Amber refused his advances for months, and that proves she’s not interested in his billions… all 12 of them!

[From The Daily Mail]

That wording is confusing. Amber is the one telling everyone that she “refused his advances for months”… and yet last fall, she was going on dates with him in London? Keep in mind, the first time we ever heard whispers about Elon and Amber was back in July of last year, just a few months after Amber filed for divorce from Johnny Depp. Like, part of me thinks that Elon “moved in on her” very quickly. Another part of me believes that she probably did play hard to get, like even when they were spending time together, it was just “as friends” and then she would make him chase her. As for Elon still being (technically) married to Talulah Riley… Elon and Talulah were on-and-off for years. There were multiple divorce filings, reconciliations, breakups and more. I don’t really think it’s a “thing” that Amber was technically dating a married man.

Also: People Mag had this story last week (I totally missed it). Apparently, Elon loves Amber’s “edginess” and he likes that she played hard to get.

Amber Heard and Elon Musk‘s friendship has blossomed into a full-blown romance — but that doesn’t mean either divorcée is racing back to the altar anytime soon.

“They have known each other for a while. They were friends first, but Elon was always very fascinated by Amber,” a source close to the billionaire tech guru tells PEOPLE. “When the time was right and they were both single last year, he started pursuing her romantically,” the source explains of the twice-divorced Musk, who was previously married to Talulah Riley and Justine Musk. “She was playing hard to get for a while, which made him even more interested.”

“Elon loves a pretty face, but he needs more to be intrigued. Amber has lots more to offer,” adds the source close to Musk, 45. “Elon is attracted to her edginess. She isn’t frightened about being different. She doesn’t get easily intimidated. She is very focused and loves to learn.”

The source also says Heard “is a great listener,” which comes in handy as Musk “loves to talk about his latest passions and projects.” The Tesla and SpaceX founder “is not your typical guy,” notes the source. Overall, “Elon is definitely intrigued,” says the source. “He seems very happy dating her. It probably won’t lead to another marriage, but neither might want that anyway.”

[From People]

The source is someone close to Elon, not Amber, but the source paints the same picture as all of the Amber-sourced stories. Amber is impossibly enchanting, an elusive butterfly who withholds just enough. I think she must be very different in person, because on-screen, she is nothing like that. On-screen, she’s a big nothingburger.

    And the promotion of Amber Heard by Amber Heard continues. One would think by now Heard would know that in any good story one has show not tell. If she wants to come off the way she keeps selling herself she needs to show that side instead of constantly telling us that she is amazing and intriguing.

    They are both going to have to eventually accept that despite their best efforts there is nothing really interesting or compelling about their coupling. An ugly, old rich man getting with an conventionally attractive, younger then him woman is not original.

    She is not going to all of a sudden reveal some deep intellect that matches his own which would make them interesting and he is not going to all of a sudden become hot looking so that the public wants to see them together.

    They are just your run-of-the-mill cliche and nothing they put out in the media will change that.

    • African Sun says:

      Cold=blooded LMAO! yet I love it.

      All I have to add is she is super pretty and loves wealthy men. +1 to all you said.

      • Nina says:

        Totally agree! Just On point.
        Plus I do think she wants to get married (has access to his money): her dad said they are moving in that direction and that she wants babies. So tough luck for her cause it seems he doesn’t want that.

    • loveotterly says:

      I don’t think he is old or ugly but if the rumors are true he isn’t a very nice guy. And I do not think they would be dating if it wasn’t for the $$$$$

      • Pumpkin says:

        I don’t think he’s old or ugly, but he’s definitely not hot (I prefer athletic and wiry guys and his face while not ugly to me is not that attractive to me. Younger Elon was fresh faced and okay look though.) He looks exhausted and if I were to work 90 hour weeks I’d probably look the same. Also, kudos to his vision and brains.

    • Originaltessa says:

      Jmo, but I think he’s good looking. I don’t really understand when people go on about him being ugly. I don’t see it. There’s something really pleasant about his face.

      • Kitten says:

        I don’t ge it either. He’s a handsome dude. Seems to be a jerk but he’s not bad-looking at all, far better-looking than Depp, that’s for damn sure.

      • Pumpkin says:

        He’s definitely better than Depp with the added bonus that he seems to wash. But wouldn’t go as far as say he’s good looking. Younger Elon was very fresh faced though.

    • jinni says:

      @Originaltessa and loveotterly: Well bless the both of you for thinking he’s cute. I guess the saying there is someone out there for everyone is true. Personally, he has the face of someone that had a face transplant that has yet to settle/ didn’t heal properly. Also having heard his voice and watched him move ( he has a hulking/lumbering quality to his movement to me) on top of how he is describe as being a dick personality wise, there is just nothing attractive about this guy to me. I was surprised to find out he was in his 40′s he looks ten years older.

      Sure he’s smart and that is interesting for a conversation, but with all the strikes against him he is nothing more then good dinner party guest material not dating or relationship material imho.

    • Snowflake says:

      Yeah, he’s not good looking, at all to me. And Amber keeps trying to paint herself as some different, unique person. But she’s just a stereotypical actress hooking up with a rich man. I’m not that impressed by her, although I do believe her claims of abuse by Johnny.

  2. The New Classic says:

    Maybe it’s the lighting, or sweat, or her makeup but it seems to me that Amber is looking very… uh, waxy lately? Did she get something done?

  3. Nicole says:

    Eh didn’t like Heard before and I don’t like her now. And I definitely don’t like Elon Musk. The PR wrangling is interesting though

  4. tracking says:

    Sounds about right.

  5. Jo says:

    On the Gold Coast. Not in.

  6. Hollz says:

    You say she’s a nothingburger, but the two things I’ve seen her in have certainly stuck in my head, and they weren’t exactly recent (Zombieland, and that one episode of Criminal Minds – that aired more than 10 years ago!) Maybe she’s better in small doses?

    Anyways, I hope she doesn’t marry him. I’m not against marriage per se, but I think most people move waaaaaaaaaaaay too fast. Both of them just got out of long term relationships, what’s wrong with being on your own for a bit? Or dating around for a while?
    A nice long engagement perhaps?

    Or is that just me being weird about relationships since I tend to avoid them?

  7. mia girl says:

    As someone pointed out on last week’s Heard/Musk post, this whole relationship PR roll-out seems like a remake of the Heard/Depp rollout.

    I mean she didn’t even bother to change the script very much, did she? Biggest difference is the recasting of one gross leading man for another gross leading man.

    • Deering says:

      Never marry a perfectionistic control freak who thinks wives are employees. And given the financial dance Musk put first wife through, it’s a good bet divorcing him for cash will be worse than her split with Depp.

  8. Talie says:

    I remember Laura benanti gave an interview about Amber after working with her and she did say that pretty much anyone who comes into her orbit is immediately besotted.

  9. Rachel says:

    Kaiser, I love you and have read you for ever. This might be a weird Australian thing but when you write about the Gold Coast we say “she’s on the Gold Coast” not “in Gold Coast”. I live down the road from Moo Moo and if you ever visit the Goldie it has good fried oysters but the Italian joint Marios up the mall is better

  10. Really says:

    They are having fun together and in a relationship, I don’t understand why everyone is so obsessed about if they will get married, when they started the relationship, what they talk about or like to do in their free time together and what are their interests like.
    If they are together and happy good for them.

    • Goldie says:

      They chose to officially “go public” last week, and so the gossip outlets are discussing them more now. I don’t think people are obsessed. It’s just the typical gossip that high-profile new couples face.

    • QueenB says:

      because Elon is not a guy you date for fun. He isnt attractive enough for that. You also dont want to date him seriously for his great character and how sweet he is to everyone. He is someone you marry for money. So its not that weird to be focused on when they will marry.

      • Really says:

        Amber always date someone older than her, also tasya (her ex before J Debt) isn’t super attractive, her other ex is part of a band Midland, she has a type always the unconventional ones.
        If you watch tasya and mark ( from midland) , it is easy to perceive the similarities.

      • Jess says:

        Lol please! that tasya woman and the midland guy is a 100 times more attractive than musk, who is an overweight middle aged dad type physically. The other two are cool artist bohemian types. Really not comparable.

      • Aren says:

        Very much agree with this. Besides, you don’t just decide to “have fun” with a guy who has been abusive to his ex-wife.

    • DrM says:

      My point exactly. I think getting married is probably the LAST thing on AH’s mind. As for the rest? She’s a grown ass woman, who hopefully has learned something from the trainwreck that is Depp. Maybe, maybe not.

  11. S says:

    i don’t have feelings for her one way or another, but i found her very memorable in that Demi moore movie where they were a fake family for social media

    • Really says:

      I enjoyed her on that movie too, also I liked The Ward, One More Time, and The Adderall Diaries.

      • Ari says:

        I actually really loved the twist in all the boys love mandy lane and drive angry although i watched drive angry because of cage mainly and yes the joneses was a FANTASTIC movie

    • Pumpkin says:

      I totally forgot she was in that film. The Joneses, with David Duchovny.

  12. Monic says:

    I like her in Pineapple Express :D and I couldn’t believe she was the same actress after in “The Rum Diary”
    I think everybody falls for her because she seems really smart. Have you seen her instagram? She’s funny but even in a small (basic way) on her captions you can see she’s the smart girl who is much more than a pretty face

  13. Felicia says:

    I think it’s interesting that last week we had her sources saying how she wanted to marry him and have babies, along with her Dad doing the public “thumbs up for this guy” thing. This week we have his sources telling us that while they are dating, he’s probably not going to marry her.

    • Jegede says:

      I noticed that too.

      Amber tried it, but Musk is cold.

      • HappyMom says:

        Hasn’t he already been married multiple times?

      • Felicia says:

        And the tussling over “who’s the alpha in this relationship” begins… lol
        Last week, she tried to take control of the public narrative. This week, he took it back.

    • Pumpkin says:

      He’s been married 3x, 2x to the same woman. Some of the posters here are assuming Amber leaked this but the articles seems to suggest it is, as Felicia pointed out, that he did this. Elon probably checked the comment sections of gossip rags (90% has has the GD word directed at Amber or warning Musk) and got his pr people to leak this to reassure his fans he’ll be okay.

  14. six says:

    So, when exactly did Heard and Musk become involved? I wouldn’t be surprised if her friendship with Musk became closer as her relationship with JD was deteriorating early in 2016. She might have asked him for advice and even protection as she was thinking about exiting the relationship with Depp.
    By the way, there was a picture of Heard having her hair and makeup done before the Golden Globes last year (January). In the foreground, and quite prominently, a copy of Science magazine is displayed http://amberheardfansite.blogspot.nl/2016/01/exclusive-backstage-golden-globes-2016.html Could the magazine have been a sign of her growing closeness to Musk?

    • Wow says:

      So you are implying that she was in a relationship just because she reads science magazine?!!
      Let’s not spread lies because of wrong assumptions.
      It is just a magazine, give a break.
      She was seem holding books about horses and newspaper crosswords, so that would mean anything too??

    • siri says:

      She probably just wanted him to notice she’s very much interested in science;-) She’s playing him, but I do believe he’s cautious.

      • no way says:

        She’s very interested in science, it’s not for him. Even She and Depp befriended an astronomer, who writes books and all

  15. Nikki says:

    Actually, the source never said he wouldn’t marry her; the source merely said their romance probably wouldn’t lead to marriage.

  16. Jess says:

    What exactly is edgy about her? Her work, her looks, her choice in older Wealthy partners is extremly conventional.

    • Julia says:

      Huh? She’s “edgy” because she’s an attention-hungry, blond-ed actress in Hollywood dating wealthy older men?!?!

    • Aren says:

      Absolutely. I think she’s gorgeous and cold, but not much else.
      If Elon wanted a woman who wasn’t “just a pretty face” he should’ve stayed with his first wife, that woman is very talented, intelligent, and as beautiful as Amber.

  17. Ruth says:

    The most laughable thing I read about this relationship is that one of the things Amber loved about him is his love for Shakespeare. Yeah right exactly like when she liked Depp for his love for Hunter S Thompson. This woman plays the PR game exact like she did back then.

    • no way says:

      she didn’t say that
      you can’t understand the difference between a gossip blogger making an irony and real quote coming from her
      she hasn’t talked about Musk

  18. Kosmos says:

    In my mind, Amber was barely known before she hooked up with Depp. She had a female lover and then dumped her for Depp. And now she’s everywhere because I feel she wanted to be on the map big time, and when the Depp union blew up, she immediately hooked onto someone else. In her photos, she looks like a spoiled, irritating brat in love with herself or trying too hard to make a name for herself through someone else’s money. Yes, men are drawn to her pretty face, but the smart ones may keep their distance or at least not marry.

  19. lunchcoma says:

    The only way I would understand this PR strategy would be if they’re planning either a wedding or a baby. Otherwise, it would be so much better for both of them to stay away from the gossip columns. It’s sort of the classic case of a couple that people will be fine with if they make things work for a few years, but that’s going to attract negative attention now due to both timing and how they seem to be picking their partners.

  20. Pumpkin says:

    For all their attempts to paint her as an intellectual, free-spirited type, Amber’s as shallow as a puddle with minimal acting talent (I’ve only seen Pineapple Express) but she’s undeniably photogenic. The camera just loves her. Elon should not be getting distracted with PR leaks. He needs to concentrate on getting humanity to Mars.

  21. Chelly says:

    Seriously, she’s with him for the $$$..the richer the guy, the less she cares about anything else. She snagged herself a billionaire, she’s in this to WIN THIS

  22. A. Key says:

    Still as bland and boring and uniteresting as ever. Even that divorce from Depp couldnt make her look “intriguing” and different.
    Also I get that she’s pretty but there’s just something about her looks that I find missing and off. Like those bland Barbie dolls you got as a filler while waiting for that special unique doll you really wanted.
