Amber Heard, born April 22, 1986 in Austin, Texas, grew up surrounded by her father David, an entrepreneur, her mother Paige, an Internet researcher for the state, and her younger sister Whitney.

Her adolescence was marked by the disappearance of her best friend, who died in a car accident when she was 16 years old. As a result of this shock, Amber, who had been raised Catholic, became an atheist and, at the age of 17, decided to leave school to take up modeling. She then moved to New York to try her luck. But the world of fashion does not suit her. Amber then crosses the United States to land in Hollywood with the ambition to become an actress.

She made her debut in 2004 with small roles in the series Jack and Bobby and The Carver Family, and in the movies with Friday Night Lights. She then appeared in several series and films but without really making an impression. It was not until 2006 that her career took off. She finally landed a lead film role in the horror movie Tous les garçons aiment Mandy Lane and the following year she got a recurring role in the series Hidden Palms. She then appeared in several feature films (Rhum Express, Welcome to Zombieland and Never Back Down…). In 2014, she will star in 3 Days to Kill in which she plays Kevin Costner.

On the private side, at the end of 2010, Amber reveals her bisexuality and appears with her girlfriend, the Hawaiian artist Tasya Van Ree. But the shooting of the film Rhum Express in 2011 changes things. There she meets Johnny Depp, then Vanessa Paradis’ partner, who falls for the young Texan girl. On February 3, 2015, Johnny Depp discreetly married Amber Heard in their Los Angeles home in an intimate ceremony, before celebrating their union surrounded by friends on the actor’s private island in the Bahamas, Little Halls Pond Cay. In May 2016, after 15 months of marriage, Amber Heard filed for divorce. In August 2016, their divorce is granted. In January 2017, a judgement is issued regarding the division of the assets of the two former spouses. In April 2017, she made her romance with Elon Musk official on social networks, but the romance was short-lived and in July of the same year they separated. On May 3, 2020, she announces the death of her mother on Instagram.
