Early life:

Amber was born April 22, 1986 in Northeast Austin, Texas. Attended St. Michael’s Catholic School. At 17 dropped out of high school to move to New York. Amber earned her high school diploma through correspondence courses soon after leaving St.Michael’s.
Her favorite place in Austin is Spider House Café. She used to hang out there before, during and after classes (yep, our girl skipped classes, still had a really high score(1400) on her SAT). She spent a lot of time at libraries as well according to her mother.
''I was looking for any excuse at all to get out of high school. It was either finish high school and go to college and then get stuck in the nine to five. Or go to New York and just see what happened. ''
At that time Amber started sending headshots to modelling agencies (she’d taken part in beauty pageants as a child) and at 17 dropped out of high school to move to New York to become a model (hated it though) and (she spent all her money that she earned by babysitting).
''I hated the idea of school dances, hated whatever was going on in pop culture. I didn’t have any concept of celebrities or Hollywood. I was always reading, reading and listening to the music. The only posters I had on my wall were Rosie the Riveter and Jimi Hendrix. ''

''At 16, Heard’s best friend died in a car crash, and it had a profound effect. Raised a Roman Catholic, she declared herself an atheist, and began reading books by Ayn Rand, Ray Bradbury and George Orwell. ''
'' I’ve been an atheist for a long, long time, and in a way, that was a catalyst for me. That was a vehicle I needed to get out of the environment I grew up in, which was very religious. ''
As a teenager, she didn’t dream of becoming an actress. '' My mom always says that if something had wheels, I was obsessed with it – cars, bikes, planes too. I was always wanting to go somewhere.''

While watching The Cremaster cycle at the Dobie Theater in Austin I thought to myself, Wow, [acting] is what I want to do for the rest of my life. After completing a home-study diploma in New York she moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting.
Was a global spokesperson for Guess, currently is for L’Oreal Paris.

She is a longtime supporter of women’s rights and has been a prominent voice in the LGBTQ community since 2006. She is a L’Oréal Global Spokesperson, the ACLU Ambassador for Women’s Rights, and a United Nations International Champion for Human Rights.
''Favorite pastime: reading about religion. I’m fascinated by every religion out there because it changes the whole world.

As a child, I literally lived in fictional worlds created by Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut and George Orwell.''

She likes crossword puzzles, she does The New York Times one every morning. She likes listening to old bluegrass(Blind Willie McTell, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Nina Simone) music, R&B and country. Her TV guilty pleasure is the dog the bounty hunter.
'' I’m also very into riding horses and cooking. I make three meals a day! It’s therapeutic for me. ''
''Five words to describe my paintings: horrible but full of heart. They aren’t very good, but I love it and it makes me happy. ''
''I definitely get my car from my dad, because he loves cars. Myself I have a thing for classics. My favorites are all-American cars. I have a 68 Mustang right now. I want to get Fastback a 67 or 69. And I’d love a Charger. Those are hot. She bought her car in 2004.''
Amber has a dog Pistol. Also she rescued a puppy in Jordan and took it to USA. You can check the story out in her Instagram(highlghts).
Amber is fluent in American Sign Language and Spanish.
''I love red wine. It’s my hobby. I don’t care what anyone says. ''

preach queen.
Personal life:

Dated Tasya Van Ree, JD, Elon Musk, Vito Schnabel, Andy Muschietti. Currently dating Bianca Butti.
"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."
''I hate olives! I want to like them, because I’m very bothered by the idea I’m missing out, and I have tried so many times to redirect my natural aversion to olives, even though I’m an actress and need another food to love like I need another hole in my ear. ''
Her secret weapon: ''my matte red lipstick. I carry it in the side pocket of my purse.''
''I want to squeeze the juice from the motherfucking orange. I was given one orange. You have one life, and I just couldn’t, I just can’t imagine not squeezing every ounce of juice I could possibly get from it. Is there anything worse than a life not lived?''
the end!
