I’ll be totally honest — Amber Heard does not get proper recognition from the world. But we think after reading her totally amazing interview with ELLE magazine (and seeing her super gorgeous photos), the world will have a new appreciation for this chick.

Heard is wearing:  Ralph Lauren Collection jacket, Thapelo Paris maillot, Fred Leighton rings, and her own earrings.

Although she’s often known as Johnny Depp’s pretty wife, Amber Heard is so much more. Heard is an actress found in tons of films like the upcoming Magic Mike XXL. She has awesome beliefs and values when it comes to the portrayal of females in her industry. She also looks totally incredible in a white one-piece with windblown hair and stunning cursive tattoos!

Heard is wearing: Altuzarra dress, Fred Leighton rings.

As she told ELLE, “I get a stack of scripts, like, once a month, and most of the time, you find these placeholder girls that are there to provide a bounce for the male character. So we know he’s funny because she’s serious and she’s mad at him. We know he’s strong because she needs saving. So really her job is to validate this personality trait of our hero or male. I mean we’re trying to imitate life, and it seems to me a deeply saddening injustice that we are so uncreative and uninterested in developing representations of female life.”

Heard is wearing: Dries Van Noten coat, The Castings For Aritzia shorts, Fred Leighton rings.

She’s got it right! Even though she’s married to the extremely well-known Depp, she’s avoided becoming just one half of a celebrity couple. “Nothing is a dramatic change. We’ve been together for a long time now, so it’s been a fairly organic process. I have a fiercely independent spirit.”

She also tells ELLE about how she’s worked so hard to secure her freedom and she does not want to lose it. And while most celebs her age are worried about losing their looks, Heard has a different kind of fear. “The thing that really scares me is the potential of losing my freedom. I never want for my life to lose the ability to transverse the world, with freedom and ease. The freedom and ease I have worked so hard to acquire for myself.”

With her in-depth and insightful responses found in just the small blurb of interview on ELLE.com, we seriously cannot wait to read the full story once it hits newsstands nationwide on June 23rd!
