Amber Heard opens up about domestic abuse and politics

The actress wants to use her platform for justice


Amber Heard has opened up about domestic violence and politics.

The actress filed for divorce from Johnny Depp two years ago and was granted a domestic violence restraining order against him.

In an interview with Glamour for her new film, Aquaman, the 32-year-old spoke about how women are judged for coming forward about certain issues.

“When a woman comes forward, she will be met with skepticism, hostility, and shame, all a man has to do is point to an incentive. He will. Or society will.”

Last year, Johnny paid a $7 million divorce settlement and Amber dismissed the restraining order against him.

Following their divorce settlement, the actress donated the sum to the ACLU, with a particular focus on ending violence against women, and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old also highlighted how she wants to use her platform to help others: “My job provides me with a platform, silence is complacency.”

“We get paid less as women, and we end up spending more time on set, because of hair and makeup demands.”
