Amber Heard Family
Heard was born in Austin, Texas, the middle child of three daughters of internet researcher Patricia Paige and construction company owner David Clinton Heard. The family lived outside Austin. Heard’s father trained horses in his free time, and she grew up riding horses, hunting, and fishing with him. She also participated in beauty pageants, although as an adult she has said that she could no longer “support the objectification”.
Raised Catholic, Heard began identifying as an atheist at the age of sixteen after her best friend died in a car crash. The following year, no longer comfortable in “conservative, God-fearin’ Texas”, Heard dropped out of her Catholic high school to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles. She eventually earned a diploma through a home-study course
Amber Heard relationships
Heard was in a relationship with photographer Tasya van Ree from 2008 to 2012. Heard had her last name legally changed to van Ree during the relationship and reverted to her birth name in 2014. In 2009, Heard was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence at Seattle–Tacoma International Airport, Washington state after allegedly hitting van Ree. Heard appeared the next day in King County District Court, Seattle but was not charged.
The arrest was made public in 2016 during Heard’s divorce proceedings with actor Johnny Depp. A statement was then issued by Heard’s publicist in which van Ree said that Heard had been “wrongfully” accused and that the incident had been “misinterpreted and over-sensationalized”, while also recalling “hints of misogynistic attitudes toward us which later appeared to be homophobic when they found out we were domestic partners and not just ‘friends'” and adding that Heard and her “shared 5 wonderful years and remain close to this day.”
Amber Heard Relationship with Johnny Depp
Heard first met actor Johnny Depp in 2009 when she was cast in The Rum Diary opposite him. According to reports, the couple began dating in 2012 and were married in a civil ceremony in February 2015. Heard filed for divorce from Depp in May 2016 and obtained a temporary restraining order against him, releasing a statement saying, “During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me.
I endured excessive emotional, verbal, and physical abuse from Johnny, which has included angry, hostile, humiliating, and threatening assaults to me whenever I questioned his authority or disagreed with him.” In response, Depp’s council said that, “Amber is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse”, and that, “He is unable to attend the hearing on this matter and has not heard Amber’s specific allegations against him. He nonetheless has every intention of staying away from Amber and will stipulate to mutual stay-away and personal conduct orders.”
Amber Heard Relationship with Elon Musk
Following her divorce from Johnny Depp, Heard dated tech entrepreneur and Tesla CEO and shareholder Elon Musk for a year, until early 2018. Heard and Musk started dating in 2016. The two met on the set of Machete Kills in 2013 where Heard played “Miss San Antonio” Bianca Vasquez and Musk made a cameo as himself.
The two started dating after Amber filed for divorce from Johnny Depp, to whom she was married for 15 months. She has a child named Oonagh who was born via surrogate, but it remains unknown who fathered the Aquaman star’s baby
Amber Heard Career
Heard played the female lead in London Fields, an adaptation of Martin Amis’s novel about a clairvoyant femme fatale who knows she will be murdered. It premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. Shortly after the screening, the film was pulled from release due to disagreements between its director and producers, and due to litigation. Heard was sued for $10 million for allegedly breaching performance and promotional obligations.
The actress countersued, claiming the producers had violated a nudity rider in her contract. In September 2018, a settlement was reached, and the film was finally released. It received highly negative reviews, and Heard later stated that “it was one of the most difficult movies to film and it has proven to continue to be difficult … I can’t say I did justice”.
Jane Mulkerrins of The Daily Telegraph wrote that Heard provided “a decent enough turn as the enigmatic ” that still could not save the adaptation, while Peter Sobczynski of RogerEbert.com said that she “just does not project the kind of mystery and allure” that the character requires. In 2019, Heard’s performance in the film received a nomination for the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress.
Amber Heard Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom
Heard is set to star in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (2023), a sequel to Aquaman. An online petition to remove Heard from the film began following her ex-husband Depp’s loss in his UK libel case and his replacement in the Fantastic Beasts films in 2020. The petition “alleges that Heard lied about her accusations against Depp and is herself a known and proven domestic abuser'”
. Heard described the campaign as “paid rumors and paid campaigns on social media”, and the film’s co-producer, Peter Safran, confirmed that Heard would appear in the sequel. By the start of the 2022 Depp v. Heard trial in the US, the petition had reached 2 million signatures. In her testimony, Heard stated that she “‘fought hard to stay in the movie’ but that ‘they didn’t want to include me in the film’ and only shot a ‘very pared-down version’ of her part”.
DC Films president Walter Hamada, who testified for Depp, stated that they had considered recasting Mera but that it was due to concerns over Heard’s chemistry with Momoa rather than the abuse allegations. Hamada also said that the role’s reduced capacity in the sequel was because the film had always intended to focus on the relationship between Momoa and Patrick Wilson’s characters. Heard is also attached to appear in Conor Allyn’s forthcoming period drama, In the Fire.
Amber Heard Charity
In 2012, Heard worked with Amnesty International on a bilingual campaign to raise awareness of American immigration policy at the Mexico-United States border. In August 2016, Heard pledged to donate her $7 million divorce settlement with Johnny Depp to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA).
Later that year in November 2016, she issued a statement defending this pledge against allegations from TMZ—even though Depp had not yet finished paying the 7 million dollars to her—that she had not yet made the donations as she had pledged. Depp finished paying the full $7 million divorce settlement to Heard by October 2018. By then, CHLA had already recognized Heard as one of their donors by officially including her in their “Honor Roll of Donors” list for the fiscal year 2017.
Amber Heard Activism
In the following year in 2019, they likewise included her in their donors’ list for the fiscal year 2018. Additionally, in January 2021, the Daily Mail reported an allegation made by Depp’s lawyers that Heard had yet to complete her donations. In response to this claim, Heard’s lawyer stated that Heard intends to “eventually fulfill her pledge” in full but has “been delayed in that goal because of Mr. Depp.
Filed a lawsuit against her, and consequently, she has been forced to spend millions of dollars.” Subsequently, media outlets reported on past statements by Heard. During an appearance on the Dutch television talk show RTL Late Night in October 2018, Heard said she “donated” $7 million to the ACLU and CHLA. In her February 2020 testimony in the Depp v News Group Newspapers Ltd case in the UK, Heard stated that she had “donated” the “entire amount” of her divorce settlement to charity
