Amber Heard: I dress like Rum character

Amber Heard's fashion choices are "very similar" to her The Rum Diary character.

The stunning actress plays Chenault in the upcoming drama - a blonde bombshell dating Johnny Depp's on-screen rival Sanderson, played by Aaron Eckhart.

Chenault is an object of desire in the movie, and regularly channels her femininity in a range of bathing suits and revealing summer frocks. The pieces perfectly embody the 1950's era of the film.

Amber relates to her character's personal style.

"They're actually very similar. I wear a lot of those clothes," she revealed in an interview with Stylist.

Amber connects with her character on a number of levels.

The 25-year-old beauty thinks it's interesting that Chenault's fashion choices are the polar opposite of her personality.

"I take parts that I feel a connection to and in this case, Chenault is a rebel and she just happens to look like the opposite of that," she explained.

"She encompasses this idea of the American dream and the 1950s, 1960s possession of the kind of perfect housewife. She might look like that but she's a rebel underneath and I certainly relate to that."
