She was asked by the host, if she would have chosen to be an actress, had she known about its hardships. Heard replied that she finds the fight or flight and career struggles very appealing.

Heard said,

“Absolutely. I love so much the inconsistency and the travel, and I love very much the struggle that you’re constantly — you’re constantly put in a state of fight or flight. It’s a constant struggle. I don’t know if I could have it any other way.”
