Amber: (on her sexuality) It didn't really affect anything in my career. I don't think the producers and directors I've worked with care one way or another. I don't want to be labeled as one thing or another. In the past I've had successful relationships with men, and now I'm in this successful relationship with a woman. When it comes to love I am totally open. I don't want to be put into a category, as in 'I'm this' or 'I'm that.
Amber: First of all, to say I came out implies that I was once in. Let me be straight about that-no pun intended. I never came out from anywhere.
(on her Drive Angry co-star)
Amber Heard: Nicholas Cage is such an incredible actor. He brings so much more to the hero roles. And you know, spending a day or two with him on site you realize why he is the legend that he is.
(on the movie Drive Angry)
Amber Heard: I don't think your grandmother would like it very much. I think a lot of people like this movie but probably not your grandmother.
(on coming out as a lesbian)
Amber Heard: I personally think that if you deny something or if you hide something, you're inadvertently admitting it's wrong.
(on doing thrillers like Stepfather)
Amber Heard: I mean, when you're running from the killer one minute and then having coffee with him the next, you kind of have to laugh at it all.
(on her partner Tasya van Ree)
Amber Heard: She's so beautiful. I mean, you'd have to be crazy not to want to go out with her!
Amber: I don't go out in the sun if I can help it. When I do, I always use SPF.
Amber: (About the modelling industry) Truly it's a horrible industry – horrible for the girls who are part of it, who admire it, the girls who fall victim to it.
Amber: (About watching herself onscreen) It's impossible to watch a movie objectively, especially your own scenes, but if it's a piece of work and I'm proud of it, as I am with Mandy Lane - I love the movie - then it's a little easier.
Amber: There's no real talent involved in modeling. Acting has substance.
Amber Heard: I am a total klutz. I'm really clumsy. If there's something to be broken, I'll break it. It's like I have magical powers that way. It's like I can break a vase just by looking at it the wrong way!
Amber Heard: Like most people, I've been the girl who walks down a hallway and isn't aware how I look and how other people perceive me.
Amber Heard: (on the death of Brad Renfro) People are going to look at him and say that the industry did this or the drugs or whatever and young people are this way. It's not just young people. It's not old people, it's not only actors. It's everybody. Everybody knows somebody with a problem.
Amber Heard: I think there's a part when you sign your soul to the devil and start working in Los Angeles that you also sign away that you could be a human being in anyone's eye. You're like a robot!
Amber Heard: I would just love to work in films for the rest of my life. I don't care about famous or about being anything like that. All I care about is living my life, being able to do what I love, working project to project, city to city, in films I believe in. That's the only way to live.
Amber Heard: (about her character Greta) Greta's wild and gets into trouble.
Amber Heard: (about shooting the first two episodes of Hidden Plams) I did lose weight between the pilot and the second episode, by giving up booze, increasing workouts and following a macrobiotic diet (no meat, dairy or processed sugar).
Amber Heard: (about the writings of Russian-born atheist Ayn Rande) I've read all of her books. Ever since then, I have been obsessed with her ideals.
Amber Heard: I'm pretty fearless.
Amber Heard: All I've ever needed is myself.
Amber Heard: My very best friend died in a car accident when I was 16 years old. That was the hardest blow emotionally that I have ever had to endure. Suddenly, you realize tomorrow might not come. Now I live by the motto, Today is what I have.
