22. “Everybody enjoys when a woman is her own character in a movie or otherwise.”

23. “I’d love to teach a self-defense class for ladies, specifically about running away from psychos in masks chasing them with chainsaws.”

24. “I think the main struggle for women in Hollywood and women in my position is to fight for true representation in the media and accurate representation of our many diverse qualities in stories.”

25. “I used to be very interested in the history of women’s rights in this country and in other countries. I tried to learn as much as I could about it, and more than anything, I would be called gay. It was phenomenal. But if a boy has something to say, he is appreciated; he’s even popular. If a girl says something, it’s instantly a threat.”

26. “I’m thankful for the work that feminists like Gloria Steinem have done. I am a feminist, but the geography for women today is vastly different than it was in the ’60s.”

27. “The feminist movement is often clouded with Gloria Steinem’s perspective, but I feel like denying women their sexuality is just as chauvinistic.”

28. “We didn’t take Charlize Theron seriously until she did Monster and became physically ugly. I would love to see women be able to be powerful, complex, smart, opinionated, and taken seriously, even if they are beautiful. Even more, I would love to see women held to different standards, other than the superficial ones that we’re held to.”

29. “I don’t want to play into the perception that all women should look like fourteen-year-old boys. I don’t want to add to that pressure for young girls. But in Hollywood, there is constant pressure to look a certain way.”

30. “The sad thing about our society is that women are put in one of two categories. You’re either in the beautiful category and you’re seen as sexy and beautiful, or some version of that, or you’re put into another category… The latter category affords women the opportunity to be smart, funny, independent, mean, strong, intelligent, and opinionated. We take them seriously as politicians if they fit into that latter category. We respect their opinions more and give them higher expectations. That latter category is what allows female actors to be characters.”

31. “There is a common, puritanical way that we look at things where, if it involves sexuality, somehow the women must be compromised. It’s just chauvinistic to deny women their sexuality. It’s about empowering. It comes down to choices. If the choices are available and they’re making that choice, they’re not being exploited.”

32. “They are very different. Women who are empowered by it and have choices based on their sexuality are very different from the ones that are being taken advantage of.”

33. “We come from a somewhat puritanical and chauvinistic point of view so that when we’re asked questions about women being empowered by sexuality, we often confuse it with women who are victimized by it.”

34. “We women still make up like one, maybe two percent of the directors, and until we make up a bigger or I guess a more significant majority or proportion of the filmmakers or until we have a larger stake in the prospective makers, then we won’t accurately accomplish that representation.”

35. “Young women from a very young age are taught that life will be easier if you can just turn on the charming smile and say very little and be complacent and docile and sweet.”

Amber Heard Quotes About Love and Relationship

36. “If you’ve been seeing someone for a short while and the “relationship” winds itself down mutually but not explicitly, no postmortem is necessary. But a real relationship should have a real ending.”

Amber Heard Quotes Sample Image

37. “I don’t feel like millions of people are wrong because they love who they love or they were born how they were born.”

38. “I’ve had amazing, successful relationships with men, and now I have an amazing, successful relationship with a woman, and the bottom line is I love who I love.”

39. “First of all, to say I came out implies that I was once in. Let me be straight about that–no pun intended. I never came out from anywhere . . . It didn’t really affect anything in my career. I don’t think the producers and directors I’ve worked with care one way or another . . . I don’t want to be labeled as one thing or another. In the past, I’ve had successful relationships with men, and now I’m in this successful relationship with a woman. When it comes to love I am totally open. I don’t want to be put into a category, as in “I’m this” or “I’m that”.”

40. “Johnny Depp is a wonderful artist and such a talented person. I got along with him, splendidly. He’s charming and wonderful to work with. He’s a dream.”

41. “If you’re not seeing each other anymore because things are so strained, and your only communication is a weekly e-mail, and you’re wondering which medium is most appropriate for announcing your desire to break up – guess what, you’ve already broken up.”

Amber Heard Quotes About Her Father’s Influence on Her

42. “I am my father’s daughter. It was not up to me growing up. I was his hunting and fishing buddy, so I’ve been shooting my whole life.”

Amber Heard Quotes Sample Image

43. “I was raised by my father; I was daddy’s girl.”

44. “I grew up driving old pickup trucks on the ranch with my dad, and I still always find myself driving like I’m out in an open field, except I’m in LA on La Cienega in the middle of rush-hour traffic.”

45. “I grew up in Texas, and people love their American-made muscle cars there. I grew up around people who loved cars and took care of cars and my dad’s a big car nut, so I learned a little bit about cars – how to love them, most importantly. I think that from the time I could remember, I’ve always envisioned myself in a vintage muscle car.”

46. “My dad used to take my younger sister Whitney and I to the firing range, and he’d stand behind us as we shot. We were tiny, tiny girls, only about ten years old at the time, so the recoil when we pulled the trigger would send us flying backwards. But he’d stand behind us and make sure we were safe.”

47. “I don’t shoot anything. I could never kill an animal. My dad does all the hunting, and he eats everything that he kills. My father persuaded me to take classes, and my first agent in Austin paid for them. I’d always wanted to be an actress. I did it in high school and fell in love with it, but I was distracted by the modeling industry because I wanted to travel and get out of my hometown. It was the easier ticket.”

Amber Heard Quotes That Reveal Her Thought and Ideas

48. “I am a firm believer that you can have the body you want, only to the extent that you’re willing to work for it.”

Amber Heard Quotes Sample Image

49. “I personally think that if you deny something or if you hide something you’re inadvertently admitting it’s wrong.”

50. “I think I’ve always had a certain amount of skepticism of this whole ‘shut up and smile’ theory. I haven’t ever swallowed that pill so easily, although I tried.”

51. “I think there’s a part when you sign your soul to the devil and start working in Los Angeles that you also sign away that you could be a human being in anyone’s eye. You’re like a robot!”

52. “I’ve made movies that were adaptations and I’ve been kind of frustrated by the process because, you know that old axiom, ‘It’s never as good as the book’? It’s often true because nothing competes with your own imagination. When you’re reading a book and you imagine something in your head, nothing’s going to compete with that.”

53. “Models are just mannequins seeking validation at the hands of sleazy fashion people.”

54. “Trying to film a movie on a diet is hard enough, I can’t imagine how it would be on drugs.”

55. “You have to do something else by 30 years old, if you haven’t found another way to explore your own identity and make something of it.”

56. “We all appreciated a certain aesthetic, and with that appreciation came a certain stylized presence.”

57. “When only one or two percent of filmmakers are female, you can’t help but have some kind of bias.”

58. “When you can find a strong character and a director that does want to protect the integrity of all characters, female and male, then you have a good deal.”

My family is supportive now, but like any adult guardian of a seventeen-year-old daughter, they were not thrilled with my plan to run off to LA to make it as an actress. Even a somewhat functioning parent would think that was a bad, bad idea. Lucky for me, I didn’t listen to them.”

63. “I can definitely make an argument for atheism. I was very educated in scripture and dogma and the church, particularly the Catholic Church. I could not possibly know that I disagreed with religion unless I knew what I was disagreeing with.”

Amber Heard Quotes About Her Work Experiences and Struggles

69. “A lot of nudity in my early movies was out of necessity. When I came out to Hollywood, I didn’t know anybody, I didn’t have any connections. I did what a lot of people have to do in the real world, and just work up from the bottom.”

Amber Heard Quotes Sample Image

70. “Hollywood can be a draining industry. For all the glitz and glory and wonderful parts of our business, it takes its toll on your inner self.”

71. “I don’t take parts because they’re for the sexy girl. I take the sexy girl parts and try to give them something else and make them a character. I just know that, at some point, you have to choose between the two.”

73. “I try to search for roles where the character is not dependent on how she looks, but it is hard because I didn’t know anyone in this industry, so I started as an extra and fought.”

74. “Hollywood actresses age in dog years. I’m 25 in the rest of the world, but I’m about 48 in actress years. I’m just around the corner from my midlife crisis.”

75. “If you’re seen as beautiful or sexy then your only options in terms of character descriptions are beautiful, sexy, cute – and that’s it. And that affords you a certain amount of opportunity but that opportunity ultimately leads to a spark, never a flame.”

76. “I’m not opposed to nude scenes if they’re appropriate. I’m not against them morally. But I personally no longer find movie nudity to be worth my while.”

80. “I was working with real artists in the Rum Diary, and that’s difficult to do and very rare, in this industry, ironically.”

81. “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.”

Amber Heard Quotes That Show Her Personality As An Actor

Which Of These Amber Heard Quotes Stands Out the Most?

Given the difficulties and experiences she endured to break into Hollywood, we cannot deny that she is a strong and confident woman. However, we must remember that being strong is not an excuse for harming others. Similarly, we must not allow others to step on us or use us unfavorably to their advantage.
