In this day and age of celebrities opening up and fighting more for sexual rights, one voice has finally shed some sensible light to this whole push and pull – Amber Heard finally points out that what should define her as an actress is her talent, not her sexuality. Our own struggles are our own, but when it comes to our careers, what should matter is our ability to carry them out.
Johnny Depp’s newly-minted wife walked the red carpet to the Magic Mike XXL London premiere boldly with her co-stars as an actress. “I don’t want to have to deny my sexuality in order to be me. But I don’t want to have to be defined by it,” the 29-year-old shared.
Amber wore a gorgeous ruffled creation by Emilio Pucci, which would have looked a tad bit too sweet and dreamy if it weren’t for her messy fishtail updo and extended smoky cat eye make up. The black ribbon reminiscent of pretty much everything French at the back of her dress was balanced by a black pair of Brian Atwood Rocycle heels.
