Horror movie queen Amber Heard dropped some unexpected news this weekend while walking the red carpet at GLAAD’s 25th anniversary party in Hollywood: She likes girls.
She tells AfterEllen.com:
I think GLAAD is one of the many reasons that I, as a 24-year-old, can come out. I think that organizations like GLAAD make that possible because if it weren’t for opinions being changed, people being influenced, people being engaged to do the right thing, then there would be no prerogative for anyone to come out.
I hate the idea of a label just as much as anyone else but I’m with who I’m with, I love who I love and I’m if not a better actress than I was yesterday and my personal life should have no effect on that. I think that the injustice of people staying in the closet is more than I can bear with a clear conscience and I couldn’t sleep at night if I was a part of that problem, if I was part of the lies.
I personally think that if you deny something or if you hide something you’re inadvertently admitting it’s wrong. I don’t feel like I’m wrong. I don’t feel like millions of people are wrong because they love who they love or they were born how they were born.
If your penis is like mine (large and bulbous), Heard’s revelation has probably caused it to have mixed feelings. But, rather than focus on the defection of Heard’s vagina to tuna town, we should instead imagine Heard making sweet, sweet love to someone like Odette Yustman underneath a waterfall while little birds chirp Linda Perry songs (that’s how lesbians have sex right?).
Oops. There goes that fantasy:
Amber Heard & Girlfriend Tasya van Ree
Heard will play it straight next year in the Nicolas Cage supernatural-actioner Drive Angry 3-D. She can also be seen this month opposite Yustman in Studio Canal’s abduction thriller And Soon the Darkness. Her additional horror creds include Zombieland, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, The Stepfather, and John Carpenter’s upcoming all-girl thriller The Ward.
Heard is part of Clatto’s esteemed list of The 20 Hottest Women Working in Horror/Sci-fi Today.
