She is also an American Civil Liberties Union ambassador and has been named a Human Rights Champion for the Stand Up for Human Rights campaign by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human rights. Heard was married to her Rum Diary co-star Johnny depp from 2015 to 2017. Their divorce drew significant media attention as Heard alleged that Depp had been physically and verbally abusive towards her through most of their relationship. Depp sued her for defamation after she publicly discussed being a victim of domestic violence, alleging that she had been the abusive party; Heard denied this. In November 2020, the High Court of Justice of England ruled that depp has lost his case and that the majority of Heard’s allegations had been proven to a civil standard which Depp intends to appeal.

She was born in Austin, Texas, to Patricia Paige, an internet researcher, and David Clinton Heard, who owned a small construction company. Her father broke horses in his free time, and she grew up riding horses, hunting, and fishing with him. At the age of 17, she no longer felt comfortable in Texas and dropped out of her Catholic high school to move to New York City. She also participated in beauty pageants, although as an adult she has stated that she could no longer support the objectification of women. Heard, who was raised Catholic, subsequently declared herself an atheist. She has a younger sister named Whitney. Heard’s earliest acting work included appearances in two music videos, Kenny Chesney’s “I Wasn’t Prepared” and “There Goes My Life” She soon soon moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. She played the main character’s love interest in The CW’s teen drama Hidden Palms, which the network wanted to replace with other summer series aimed at teenage audiences. She reprised the latter role opposite Jason Momoa in Aquaman, which became the most profitable DC Extended Universe film up to that point, and the fifth highest-grossing film of 2018. She has also starred in the television musical drama One More Time, and the Martin Amis adaptation London Fields. The latter was due to be released in 2015, but became the subject of a series of lawsuit between its director, Heard and the production company over disagreements in its editing and other issues.
