Amber Heard Claims Women Get Roles Based On Their Appearance

Amber Heard previously expressed her battle to prove her worth beyond her looks.

Heard told Vogue:

“I am constantly struggling to show people that there is more to me than my appearance. You do have to try and overcome those hurdles. Female actresses need to be given the chance to be more than how they look. There’s two categories for women in Hollywood; you’re either sexy and that’s it, or you’re not and because of that you often get given better opportunities. You can’t be sexy and get as many good roles, fact.”

Amber Heard shared her frustrations with the way women are categorized in the industry, emphasizing that the situation won’t improve until there is greater female representation among filmmakers and producers. She pointed out that many female characters and narratives are crafted by men, underscoring the flaws in the current system.

Although she has concerns about the film industry, Heard has been navigating it as best as she can. Previously, she stood out as one of the rare actresses openly discussing her s*xuality, confirming her relationship with her then-girlfriend, the artist and photographer Tasya van Ree.

Fresh information from Amber Heard’s therapist’s records, as reported by Variety, has brought to light some interesting aspects concerning her forthcoming movie, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

In addition to Momoa, the therapist records also alleged that the director of the movie, James Wan, was unsympathetic toward the Zombieland star because of the Johnny Depp versus Amber Heard trial. The notes indicated that Wan restricted her from sharing anything about the film or capturing moments on set.

Heard said:

“He raised his voice @ me — ‘I can’t even post about Aquaman’ — made it like it was my fault – I said ‘I’m sorry.’ Nobody could take selfies with me on set given blackout.”

While the director of The Conjuring has remained silent in response, a spokesperson from DC has asserted that Wan is recognized for his supportive approach toward his cast and team. They emphasized that he maintained the same positive demeanor during the production of Aquaman 2.
