Amber is a famous agnostic and borderline atheist. She has mentioned how she thought Christianity and Catholicism were absurd once she was old enough to understand them. She has said, “I can definitely make an argument for atheism. I was very educated in scripture and dogma and the church, particularly the Catholic Church. I could not possibly know that I disagreed with religion unless I knew what I was disagreeing with.” She also said, “I had always been a reader and a skeptic, so when I was old enough to break away from organized religion, it just came naturally.”
Heard became obsessed with her ideals when she was introduced to the writings of Ayn Rand in 2007. The Objectivism philosophy of Rand has been adopted by the Tea Party movement which is right wing. However, she is more socially liberal with an affinity for guns. She is a big social activist and has supported many progressive organizations.
Amber likes swimming, horseback riding, diving, golf, and rock climbing. She also says her car, a 1968 Mustang, is her true love and her “baby”.
Amber is a big activist in the LGBT community. She is actually a bisexual and has been in the spotlight while she dated her ex-girlfriend from 2008 to 2011. She said, “There has been a lot of media attention surrounding my relationship. It’s been frustrating as I don’t label myself one way or another – I have had successful relationships with men and now a woman. I love who I love, it’s the person that matters.”
Amber is currently single, but is still in the process of divorcing actor Johny Depp. They have been having some issues with going through with the divorce as there has been accusations of domestic violence. Amber Heard and Johnny Depp were married from 3rd February, 2015 to around May, 2016

Amber was listed as number 13 on the Maxim Top 100 Women List in 2010.
I would love to see women be able to be powerful, complex, smart, opinionated and taken seriously, even if they are beautiful. Even more, I would love to see women held to different standards, other than the superficial ones that we’re held to.
