Amber Heard doesn’t want Angelina Jolie fame

Amber Heard wouldn’t want to lead a celebrity lifestyle and therefore keeps her relationship with Johnny Depp under wraps.

The actress is currently dating her Rum Diaries co-star Johnny Depp but chooses to keep her romantic life private.

The star also avoids celebrity hangouts and sticks to running her own errands in an effort to remain normal.

“It’s not part of my professional life. I want to be an artist. I don’t want to be a celebrity,” she told Flare magazine. “You can find pictures of me [on the Internet] pumping gas, picking up dry cleaning, walking my dog, but nowhere are you going to find pictures of me hanging around at some nightclub.

“Can you ever imagine yourself in a situation like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West?”

The thespian admits she is not willing to hide her relationship with Johnny. But she’s reluctant to give too much of an insight. Amber fears doing so would fuel the public’s need to know what goes on behind closed doors.

“Where the world feels like they have a stake in your private life,” she continued. “I would never want it… I guess I could not hold hands with who I want to, but what kind of life would that be?

“I don’t want to change just because people are watching. I’ve always been the person who says what she wants.”

Amber’s latest film sees her star alongside Miley Cyrus’ fiancé Liam Hemsworth.

She picked her role because of the depth involved with the character she portrayed.

“I loved how you’re dealing with a lot of old themes like greed and power, but it’s such a modern story,” she explained. “My character basically had to be smart enough to manipulate Liam Hemsworth’s character. Yes, there are sex scenes, but it wasn’t like she was falling at his feet.”
