Before she married Johnny Depp, you may or may not have heard of Amber Heard. Of course, now that she has filed for divorce and accused him of domestic violence, her name has undoubtedly been seen and heard everywhere (at least on the internet and in the tabloids).
But, what do you know about the lesser-known 30-year-old actress who grew up in Manor, Texas, just outside of Austin? Let’s get to know her better with these 8 fascinating facts about her.
8 Things You Didn’t Know About Amber Heard
1. An Atheist
She became an atheist when she was 16 years old. This was the year her companion died in a vehicle accident, and it appears to have had a lasting impact on her. ((FFF))
2. Charged For Dog Smuggling
Amber has been charged with smuggling dogs. This occurred when she brought her and Johnny Depp’s canines to Australia illegally. Many places are wary of exotic creatures crossing their borders because there is simply too much that can harm an ecosystem. ((The Guardian))
3. Donated Her Settlement Money To Charity
When she and her ex-husband Johnny Depp separated, she was awarded a $7 million settlement, which she instantly donated to charity. ((Inside Charity))
4. Went To Newyork To Become A Model
Amber moved to New York to become a model. She later moved to Los Angeles to become an actress, but she’s excelled in almost everything she’s tried and has a really positive attitude when she’s in front of the camera.
5. Doesn’t Like Labels On Her Sexual Orientation
In terms of ‘coming out,’ she dislikes being classified in such a way and has spoken out about it numerous times since admitting that she has had wonderful relationships with males and now has good relationships with women. ((Elle))
6. School Drop Out
She dropped out of school when she was 17 years old. It’s safe to presume she’s obtained some schooling at this time because staying in show business isn’t something one gets to do unless something clicks upstairs and a person decides to actually finish an education.
7. A Trilingual Person
Amber is proficient in Spanish, which she reportedly picked up while growing up in Texas and hanging out with many of the Spanish-speaking laborers her father, a contractor, frequently recruited. She also speaks American Sign Language, which she learned while taking a class at an Austin community college. ((We Are Mitu))
8. An Avid Reader
Amber has extensively discussed her passion for reading in a number of interviews. She admits to traveling with at least seven volumes in her suitcase at any given time, including Thomas Jefferson’s “The Jefferson Bible: The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth.”
