The death of her best friend when Heard was sixteen affected her deeply. She was disenchanted with religion and veered toward atheism as she was heavily influenced by Ayn Rand’s ideas around this time. She eventually dropped out of school at seventeen and moved to New York City to pursue modelling.
After a brief interlude, Heard’s 2013, releases included the thriller ‘Paranoia’, the action-comedy ‘Machete Kills’, and the satire ‘Syrup’. Her solo film for 2014 was ‘3 Days to Kill’, which was a commercial success.

Amber Heard has refused the conventional labels to define one’s sexual orientation. She came out at an event in 2010, and has acknowledged that she has had relationships with both men and women.
She and Depp were accused of breaching Australia’s biosecurity laws in April, 2015, because they failed to declare the two Yorkshire terriers to the Australian Customs Service when they flew by private jet. They pleaded guilty and were issued a $1,000 fine along with a one-month good behavior bond.
A settlement between Depp and Heard was reached on August 16, 2016, and the divorce was later finalized. She was granted $7 million, which has been said to be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union and the Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
She dated the business magnate, Elon Musk, for almost a year before they split in August 2017. They continue to remain close friends.
Post her much-publicized divorce with Johnny Depp, the couple has remained in news related to their accusations of Depp being an "abusive husband." In 2018, Depp sued the British tabloid "The Sun" for defamation, but the judge hearing the case observed that the publication calling him a "wife beater" was "substancially true."
