Amber Heard opens up about life in the public eye following Johnny Depp divorce

Amber Heard has spoken out about the perils of being a role modern for women after her turbulent relationship with actor Johnny Depp. Court documents from the couple revealed that Depp had been ‘verbally and physically abusive’ to Heard and a very public divorce followed.

Heard received $7 million in the divorce settlement from Depp which she has stated she would donate to American Civil Liberties Union and the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in 2018. Speaking to GQ Australia about her public image, she said it can be a burden when your life is no longer your own. ‘I feel incredibly fortunate that I’m in a position where I could be of any help. At times it’s a burden to consider that your life is no longer just yours and it’s not private.’

Heard said that she doesn’t mind being called inspirational by other women. ‘I always tend to do things truthfully and do the right thing. All I strive for in life is never get the temptation to try to be popular, liked, accepted. It’s never anywhere equal to the desire I have to live my life truthfully and with dignity and with pride.’

The actress, who is most famous for her role in Aquaman, said that in regard to the Hollywood sex scandal she doesn’t know how it stayed quiet for so long. ‘You scratch your head wondering why women go through this sort of harm most often behind closed doors.’
