Amber Heard is an actress and model from the United States with an estimated net worth of $8 million. Despite her initial attempts at modeling, she went on to become a successful actress.
She is known for her roles in films such as Never Back Down and Pineapple Express, both of which were released in 2008. Heard has been in a number of TV shows. Between 2015 and 2017, Heard was married to Hollywood actor Johnny Depp for two years.
On April 22, a number of high-profile celebrities are scheduled to testify in a US courtroom as part of Amber Heard’s multi-million dollar lawsuit against her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.
Amber Laura Heard was born on April 22nd, 1986, in Austin, Texas. Heard was reared with one brother outside of Texas, riding horses, hunting, and fishing. She attended a Catholic high school and participated in beauty pageants as a child, but later in life, she became disillusioned with religion and the Texan lifestyle that surrounded her.
As a result, at the age of seventeen, she dropped out of high school and relocated to New York City. Although she began her career as a model in New York, she quickly moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting.
Amber Heard’s acting career began with a spate of music video appearances. She went on to star in sitcoms including Jack & Bobby, The Mountain, and The O.C. In 2004, she made her film debut in Friday Night Lights. The film was a hit, and it helped her gain notoriety in the industry. She went on to play roles in films such as Drop Dead Sexy, North Country, Side FX, Price to Pay, You Are Here, and Alpha Dog. She began to make guest appearances on television shows such as Criminal Minds and Californication.
Amber Heard moved on to more central roles in the teen drama Hidden Palms, in which she starred. Unfortunately, the sitcom was panned by critics and was canceled after only eight episodes. Heard also starred in the film Remember the Daze, which received mixed reviews.
By 2008, however, Amber Heard had finally broken through to become one of Hollywood’s top leading women. She starred opposite James Franco and Seth Rogen in the stoner comedy Pineapple Express earlier this year. She also had a role in the film Never Back Down. Both of these films were box office hits, demonstrating Amber Heard’s ability to take projects to new heights. She did, however, continue to feature in flops like The Informers and All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.
Amber Heard continued to book roles in both successful and disappointing films in 2009. Despite the fact that Zombieland was a big step forward in her career, she ended the year with box office disappointments and critical failures like The Joneses and The Stepfather. Heard shifted his concentration to independent films such as ExTerminators, The River Why, and And Soon the Darkness during the next few years. She also starred in The Ward, a critical and box revenue flop.
On The Rum Diary in 2011, Amber Heard collaborated for the first time with Johnny Depp. The film was based on a Hunter S. Thompson novel, and it earned poor reviews and failed to make much of an effect at the box office. Films like Drive Angry, Paranoia, Machete 3 Days to Kill, and Syrup followed with similar stories.
Heard had a better year in 2015, with roles in Magic Mike XXL, The Danish Girl, The Adderall Diaries, and One More Time. All four films were critically and economically successful. She did, however, appear in the disastrous disaster that was London Fields. The 2015 film was accused of fraud, with both the director and the cast objecting to the final cut that was shown to the public. The film was critically panned, and Heard was sued for $10 million for making unauthorized screenplay changes and not completing voice-over work. She then filed a countersuit, and the case was settled.
Heard spent the next few years in numerous independent films, but she rose to prominence after portraying Mera, the Atlantean queen, in the DC Extended Universe. She originally appeared as Mera in Justice League, and she returned to her role in Aquaman in 2018.
Amber Heard Filed to Get Spousal Support
Following her divorce, Amber Heard filed for spousal support, asking for $50,000 per month to fund her living expenses.
Monthly spending included $10,000 for rent, $2,000 for eating out every month, and $10,000 for pet supplies and legal costs, according to court filings. She revealed that she earns only $27,000 in royalties from several films.
She also said that she earned $250,000 in 2014 but spent over $210,000, resulting in a net income of only $40,000 for the year. Amber Heard submitted supporting documentation to show that her earnings were just $25,000 at the time. Finally, she dropped her spousal support request.
