Amber Heard has opened up about the difficulties of coming out as bisexual in Hollywood.
The Magic Mike XXL star came out to the public as bisexual in 2010 when she was dating photographer Tasya van Ree.
In an interview with The Times, Ms Heard explained that at the time she “didn’t know of anyone else in my position who was a working female lead actress” who had made their sexuality public knowledge.
The star of The Rum Diary explained how she doesn’t want to hide from her sexuality but she also doesn’t want to be defined by it.
“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. I’m fundamentally opposed to trying to edit myself to be palatable or popular.
“I don’t give a f**k. I fight, but I shouldn’t have to,” the 29-year-old admitted.
Amber also opened up about her role in the forthcoming Magic Mike XXL. Ms Heard clearly appreciates the reversed gender roles in the film, with the men being the recipients of objectification. As she said, “It’s a film about men seeking sexual attention… It gives the power position to the women.”
Sounds like Ms Heard has a lot in common with Hollywood heartthrob Chris Pratt who also believes that men should be checked out more in the name of equality.
