Amber Laura Heard (born April 22, 1986) is an American actress. She is perhaps best known for her role of Greta Matthews on the CW television show, Hidden Palms. She plays the lead role (and title character) in All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2006 and was released theatrically in 2008. Once in Los Angeles, Heard made appearances in various TV shows. She was cast as Liz in the pilot episode of The WB's Jack & Bobby (2004), as Riley in an episode of The Mountain (2004) and she had a brief cameo as a salesgirl in The O.C. (2005). Her first movie role was Maria in Friday Night Lights (2004). She next starred as Shay in Side FX (2005), an independent horror film, and had supporting roles in Drop Dead Sexy (2005), Price to Pay (2006) and You Are Here (2006). Heard had more prominent parts in Niki Caro's North Country (2005) as young Josey and as Alma in Nick Cassavetes' Alpha Dog (2006). In 2006 she starred in an episode of Criminal Minds as Lila Archer, a young Hollywood actress who has a crush on Spencer Reid. Heard was next cast in the CW Network's Hidden Palms. On the show she portrayed Greta Matthews, who suffered the losses of both her mother and boyfriend, Eddie, and befriends Johnny, the anti-hero of the show. In order to get the part, Heard was asked to lose weight. It took her four months, daily workouts and a ban on carbohydrates to lose 25 pounds. The show ended on July 4, two weeks prior than originally planned. Heard also made a brief appearance in Showtime's Californication and joined the ensemble cast of The Informers, based on Bret Easton Ellis' novel of the same title, set to be released in 2009. Heard next appeared in Zombieland, playing the small role of the object of Jesse Eisenbergís affection who turns into a zombie. She will subsequently appear in John Carpenter's The Ward. In March, Heard begins filming The Rum Diary, opposite Johnny Depp, in Puerto Rico.

Amber Heard seen on Mar 14 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. Amber Heard was snapped by the paparazzi leaving lunch at Urth Caffe in LA on March 14, and did her best to avoid the shutterbugs as she headed to her car. For her lunchtime 'fit, Amber paired skinny cropped jeans (similar to AG Jeans' Stilt Jean in 10 Year) with a cute white lace top (for something similar, check out Gold Hawk's Ant Lace Caftan in Blanc de Blanc, or for a dress version of this top, try Meghan Los Angeles' Kaikara Dress in Eggshell) and studded slippers. A grey tote with chain embellishment and a classic pair of Ray-Ban New Wayfarers in Black finished off AH's outfit. Is this something you'd wear for a lunch outing, everyone? In other Amber news, there is a bit of buzz about town that she is the frontrunner to play the role of Kate Kavanagh in the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie. According to Fanshare, "Kate Kavanagh is the roommate of main character Anastasia Steele. Kate has strawberry blonde hair and is described as being domineering, persistent, beautiful, vivacious and willing to do whatever it takes to get her own way. So far, there have been no official castings for the movie but, if Amber was to be cast in the role of Kate Kavanagh, you certainly would not hear us complaining, as we feel that she is more than capable of pulling off the role and being a convincing Kate." Thoughts, everyone?
Amber Heard seen on Oct 02 2012 in Beverly Hills, CA. Amber Heard was spotted leaving the Beverly Hills restaurant Mr Chow on October 2, opting for black and white for her evening ensemble. Starting with Monika Chiang's leather skirt (for a leather-less option, check out Tag Jeans' classic Bancroft High Rise Pencil Skinny in Black), Amber then tucked in a white sleeveless blouse (like Gold Hawk's Garden Apron Top in Blanc de Blanc) and added on a chic metallic bag (for a similarly shaped bag, check out Cassandra's Princess Evening Bag in Espresso) and pair of black satin pumps. A delicate silver necklace (get the look with Robyn Rhodes' Michelle Necklace in Silver), a red lip, and high ponytail completed AH's ensemble. Are you into this look, everyone? In other Amber news, rumors have been circulating that the blonde actress has set her sights on none other than Ellen Degeneres! Amber made headlines back in 2010 when she came out as bisexual, and it seems as thought Ellen is her latest romantic target. According to an inside who tells the Globe: "Portia is extremely jealous ad doesnít want Amber Ė or anyone else Ė getting too close to Ellen. A lot of women openly flirt with Ellen and try to hit on her, which drives Portia nuts. So when Portia found out Amber had been calling and texting Ellen, asking for advice on real estate and becoming a vegan, she hit the roof! Amber admires Ellen a lot and considers her a role model. She suggested the two meet up for lunch or coffee, but Portia made it clear to Ellen that if they do get together, sheís gonna be there too!" Do you believe this account, everyone?
Amber Heard seen on Mar 30 2012 in Los Angeles, CA. Amber Heard was caught by the paparazzi as she left Starbucks in LA on March 30, donning an outfit that seems to be quite equestrian inspired. Starting with a pair of sporty leggings (Hard Tails' Riding Pant in Black have similar equestrian stitching as Amber's), Amber then slipped into a pair of tall black riding boots and wore a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses. Up top, she chose a comfy cream colored sweater (take your pick between Free People's Pop Layer Pullover Top in Sherbert or Minnie Rose's Double V Neck in Sand) over a black button up shirt (try Kimberly Taylor's Ibiza Top in Black). Amber then finished off her casual outfit with a bright manicure and sleek ponytail. Thoughts on Amber's sidewalk style, friends? I definitely think that this is a great look for her, casual yet still stylish. The Daily Mail seems to agree with me, as they call Amber a "cool rider" with this look. According to them, "Amber stepped up her style by donning an ensemble fit for the stables. It was the lower half [of her outfit] which took her fashion to new heights as she wore black jodphurs brown panels on the inner thigh." Are you as enamored with Amber's outfit as they are?
Amber Heard seen on Feb 28 2012 in West Hollywood, CA. Amber Heard was caught by the paparazzi as she left popular West Hollywood eatery Joan's on Third through the restaurant's back exit on February 28, taking the time to give her lunchtime pal a hug before hopping into her car. Outfit wise, Amber paired cropped white jeans (like Hudson Jeans' Crop Jean Pant in White) with a black lace top (Vava by Joy Han's Blanca Top in Black is fairly similar, and Free People's Gypsy Lace Dress in Black is like a dress version of Amber's top), and then wore a funky cool pair of metallic gold lace-up flats. When it came to her accessories, AH opted for a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses and an oversized nude tote. A few layered necklaces (try Robyn Rhodes' Tess Necklace in Gold) provided the finishing touches. Are you liking Amber's outfit here, friends? Would you say it's an improvement over one of her other recent street style looks? Miss Heard was recently on the cover of Italy's Max Magazine's February 2012 issue, and The Rum Diaries star spoke out about some of her favorite authors and musicians. So cultural! Amber says, "Generally I do not read novels, I prefer Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Ayn Rand and Dave Eggers. I read continuously, almost four books a week. Musically, I listen to blues, old blues, delta blues, rocking blues, Lightnin' Hopkins, Blind Willie Johnson, Muddy Waters, Arnold Burnside and Koko Taylor." Wow, I never would have guessed that Amber was so into blues!
Amber Heard seen on Feb 04 2012 in Los Angeles, CA. We don't see much of Amber Heard besides when she's smoldering on a red carpet, so it's pretty interested to see her street style sensibilities here! Amber was caught by the paparazzi as she and a friend grabbed take out from Urth Caffe in LA on February 4, after doing some shopping at American Rag. For her outfit, it looks as if Amber layered a black dress over a white skirt... is that your interpretation of this look, readers? For those of you who are interested in putting your own spin on her ensemble, try wearing Lotta Stensson's Single Layer Best Dress in Black over Boulee's Stella Dress in White. From there, try layering a few charm necklaces as Amber did by pairing Danielle Stevens Jewelry's Good Luck Necklace in Gold with Christie Martin Jewelry's Puffy Heart and Disc Necklace in Gold/Silver. Are you feeling this outfit on Amber, everyone? I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on her unique street style. What's interesting about it is that Amber was apparently so fond of this look that she wore it two days in a row. Say what? Yep, she wore this same outfit the day before as she went shopping at The Grove. Hey, we've all done it, but do you think that this 'fit is worth repeating?
Amber Heard seen on Dec 11 2011 in New York, NY. Amber Heard was caught by the paparazzi as she hailed a cab in NYC on December 11, in a cute black and white look that consisted of a Proenza Schouler coat and Dolce & Gabbana dress. To get Amber's look, try pairing either Sachin + Babi for Ankasa's Kasia Dress in Black/White or Kimberly Taylor's Windsor Dress in White with a bold, statement coat, such as Desigual's Abrig Sarah Coat in Black. From there, wear sheer black tights with a fun pair of footwear, such as Diane von Furstenberg's Davis Shoe in Pewter. A houndstooth clutch and a pair of warm leather gloves provided the finishing touches to Amber's 'fit. Are you into this look for her, readers? Amber recently appeared on the cover of Women's Health - I told you about the Photoshop controversy here - and spoke out about her shape-up secrets. Says Amber: "I am a firm believer that you can have the body you want, only to the extent that youíre willing to work for it. Once you start working out, you feel better and it becomes something you make time to do, Itís about feeling healthy." Very true!
Amber Heard seen on Dec 01 2011 in Paradise Island, Bahamas.

From there, keep your accessories simple, and wear Avanessi's Medium Stud Earrings in Rose Gold and Marc Jacobs' Grey Suede Pump. Voila! Ladylike glam at its finest. What are your thoughts on Amber's look here, everyone? In other Amber news, the blonde beauty has recently been in the middle of a Photoshop scandal! Appearing on the December 2011 issue of Women's Health," Amber's midsection appears disproportionally tiny compared to the rest of her body. According to the NY Daily News: "Women's Health magazine doesnít think Amber Heard needs ribs or internal organs." However, Michele Promaulayko, Editor in Chief of Women's Health said: "We did not Photoshop the image to make her look thinner. These are her real proportions. We choose cover stars who are fit and healthy. Amber exemplifies that." Click here to check out the photo for yourself, what do you think?
Amber Heard seen on Dec 03 2010 in Los Feliz, CA. Amber Heard posed proudly on the red carpet of the GLAAD Celebrates 25 Years of LGBT Images in the Media Show in Los Angeles on December 3, after recently coming out as a lesbian in an interview with AfterEllen. For her red carpet moment, Amber chose a striking red Dolce & Gabbana dress along with nude patent Christian Louboutins with spiked detailing (for a more modest pair, try KORS Michael Kors' Julian Patent Pump in Sand) and no jewelry. For a selection of lovely red numbers here on CoutureCandy, check out either Bailey 44's NY Dolls Dress in Crimson, Voom by Joy Han's Samantha Babydoll Dress in Red, or Shumaq's Lilis Dress in Red, any of which would be ideal for an intimate holiday soiree. What are your thoughts about Amber's look, readers - did she knock it out of the park? In her revealing interview about coming to terms with her sexuality, Amber said: "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 werenít 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. Like I said, I canít be a part of the problem. I hate the idea of a label just as much as anyone else but Iím with who Iím with, I love who I love and Iím 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 couldnít sleep at night if I was a part of that problem, if I was part of the lies." She continued, "I personally think that if you deny something or if you hide something youíre inadvertently admitting itís wrong. I donít feel like Iím wrong. I donít feel like millions of people are wrong because they love who they love or they were born how they were born. Iím proud to be on the right side of history and I can do nothing more than encourage people to look at their lives and ask "What side of history am I on? Am I doing the right thing or am I doing the wrong thing?"" Very powerful stuff - congrats Amber!
Amber Heard seen on Jul 19 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Amber Heard was photographed on the red carpet of the Los Angeles premiere for Angelina Jolie's new film Salt on July 19, wearing a lace Marchesa strapless dress that she paired with nude Brian Atwood peeptoe pumps and Jimmy Choo's Lisa Clutch. To get a romantic and sophisticated look like Amber has here, slip into a sexy strapless number such as one of Sue Wong's offering on CoutureCandy, like the Floral Overlay Dress in Ivory or the Vintage Beaded Short Dress in Ivory. From there, accessorize with a pair of nude heels, a glitzy clutch (like Moyna Handbags' Sequin & Beaded Clutch in Light Brown) and a few of showstopping earrings (check out Alanna Bess' Triple Loop Drop Earring in Gold). Are any of you dying over Amber's look here, or are you less than impressed? While you may recognize Amber from her numerous film roles in the past, I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of her when she takes on the upcoming role of Mystique in the new X-Men: First Class. Are any of you X-Men fans excited?
Amber Heard seen on Jan 15 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. New face Amber Heard was photographed striking the classic hand-on-hip pose at the New York Times Style Magazineís Pre-Golden Globe Awards Party hosted by Dom Pťrignon held at the Chateau Marmont on January 15 in LA, rocking a patterned Alexander McQueen mini dress from his Fall 2009 collection. For a more wearable (not to mention affordable!) interpretation of Amber's look, try one of the patterned dresses on CoutureCandy, such as Black Halo's Scarlet Dress in Black/White, Young Fabulous & Broke's Vanessa Dress in Grey, or Trina Turk's Tula Dress in Zebra. For the rest of her outfit, Amber grabbed a white clutch (like Antoinette Lee Designs' Dolcita Clutch in White), a pair of black peeptoe pumps, and oversized stud earrings. On a beauty note, I am loving her sideswept blonde locks... this style is so '80s (in a good way). She kept her makeup fairly natural, adding a dark, smoky eye for a dramatic look. Her nails were firetruck red, which really stand out in this fairly monochromatic outfit. Overall, I think she looks fantastic. Amber is set to star next in the upcoming film The Rum Diary, which was based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel of the same name. It turns out that Amber got the part because of a letter that she wrote to the producers about her passion for the project and how she thought she would be perfect in the role. It turns out her persistence paid off, as Amber said: "The part didnít call for a famous person. It called for an actress who was right for the part." I think Ms. Heard is definitely one to watch in 2010!
