Amber Heard Was Told Coming Out Would Ruin Her Career

Amber Heard

Amber Heard

The actress stars in 'Justice League, ' which will hit the theatres on November 16.

In the interview, she talked about the current media wave of sexual assault and harassment allegations, in relation to her own experience. In Allure's December cover story, the "Aquaman" star revealed that she has received pushback from her Hollywood peers for her sexuality.

Earlier this year, she spoke out about the effect coming out had had, and the industry's "obsession" with the bisexual label. When asked whether she identified as bisexual, Amber said, "I don't identify as anything".

"I'm a person. I like who I like", she continued.

She further explained her decision to own her "private life" and shared to the magazine, "I happened to be dating a woman, and people started taking pictures of us walking to our vehicle after dinner". I [was] holding her hand, and I realized that I have two options: I can let go of her hand and, when asked about it, I can say that my private life is my private life. "Or I could not let go and own it". In the extensive interview, she opens up about her own activism and sexuality. You can't do this to your career.' And I said, 'I cannot do this any other way.

"Everyone told me: "You can not do this"...everyone said, 'You're throwing it all away. You can't do this to your career'".

"They pointed to no other working romantic lead, no other actress, that was out", added Amber. "Watch me." The 31-year-old, who was married to Johnny Depp from 2015 to 2017 and recently split from Tesla founder Elon Musk, first came out in 2010 during an event hosted by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). "I was never in". "It's limiting, that LGBTQ thing", she said.

"It served as a function as an umbrella for marginalized people to whom rights were being denied, but it loses its efficacy because of the nuanced nature of humanity", Heard explained.

'As we become more educated and expand the facts of our nature, we keep adding letters, ' she commented. 'It was a great shield, but now we're stuck behind it.
