Johnny Depp’s girlfriend Amber Heard is getting personal in the new issue of Elle, saying she doesn’t regret coming out as bisexual in the least bit.
The actress, 27, who will soon appear in Machete Kills and Three Days to Kill, says she would much rather play a character with substance over a damsel in distress type.
"I try to play characters who are somehow empowered or strong," she told Elle.
"People want to put me in a wedding dress and make me the object of affection, but I'd much rather shoot the gun and save the world. I've always fought against what was expected of me as much as I could."
Heard said her decision to come out as bisexual in 2010 isn’t anything she’s “ashamed” of. "I didn't want to look like I was hiding anything," she said. "I'm not, and wasn't ever, ashamed,” E! Online reports.
She added, "I don't imagine myself, my work, or my life, fitting into any kind of standardized path. In fact, the idea of there even being a standard freaks me out a lot."
