The topic of who is the most beautiful woman in show business is a popular one within the media, but also whenever groups of guys get together to shoot the breeze and drink. Some popular choices usually include Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, and Megan Fox. Even stars who have been around for decades, such as Angelina Jolie, get their names thrown around in this conversation. Mila Kunis, Scarlett Johansson, and Jessica Biel are other choices as well, and clearly, we could go on for days talking about this.
Plenty of stunning celebs fly under the radar, however, and get forgotten. One example is Anna Kendrick, but in terms of women who often go unmentioned and should be at the top of everyone's "hottest on Earth" list is Amber Heard. She's a gifted actress and has been in the business since 2004, when she was just 18 years old. Her first few roles were very small and included a couple of single episode roles in TV shows and a small part on the Friday Night Lights movie.
Since then, she's earned plenty of larger roles within genres from horror (All The Boys Love Mandy Lane and The Ward, for example) to comedy (Pineapple Express). One of her overlooked parts was in The Rum Diary, in which she co-starred with Johnny Depp. Based on a novel of the same name by deceased journalist Hunter S. Thompson, the movie didn't do very well and failed to live up to what Depp had achieved while working on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. While filming together, Depp and Heard formed a relationship and were married in 2015. They split up a year later amid rumors of abuse. The divorce went through earlier this year, and they have finally gone their separate ways.
Looking at her, we have to imagine that Depp misses having this magnificent woman in his life. Here are fifteen amazing pictures of Amber Heard that show what Johnny is missing out on.
15 By The Pool
We know a lot about Johnny Depp. Spending over two decades at the top of show business and in the limelight will do that. The man is a great actor, an eccentric figure, and has certainly earned his fame and fortune. The extravagance of his life is no surprise, and Depp has more houses than most people have rooms in their house. By one estimate, he has spent $75 million on at least fourteen properties. He has an incredible yacht, several more in the Hollywood Hills, a few in Los Angeles, one massive mansion in France, and a tropical paradise property in the Bahamas. Most of these homes have pools, and we have to imagine that Depp came home to his flawless wife, Amber, sitting in the sun by the pool multiple times. One would have to be absolutely crazy not to miss a sight like this.
14 Arched Back
If you're a guy and play sports, or have played sports in the past, there is an added perk to the experience. If you keep your jersey, there is a chance that your girlfriend, who will likely steal your clothes from time to time, will one day put on your old jersey and nothing else one weekend and walk around your place, hopefully to prep some eggs and bacon after an awesome night. This is something dudes who don't play sports will likely never experience. While we aren't sure whether she's actually wearing a jersey (it might just be a baggy shirt that kind of looks like a jersey), there is a number on it, making it look like a jersey of some sort. More importantly, that arched back pose is among the hottest a woman can pull off. This shot may be a reference back to her first film role in the high school football flick Friday Night Lights.
13 Scene From "Machete Kills"
In 2013, Heard played an undercover beauty pageant contestant in Machete Kills, the sequel to 2010's Machete, the only legitimate vehicle for Danny Trejo as a starring actor. Before we drool over how gorgeous she looked in the movie, we should mention something else about this otherwise unimpressive film. Charlie Sheen appears in this film, credited as Carlos Estevez (his birth name) and plays the President of the United States. Given the state of politics in the USA right now, the thought of The Warlock in the White House in the next couple of decades doesn't seem entirely unlikely. We are predicting Sheen to win it in 2028, you heard it first here.
But getting back to the point we have to make, Amber Heard looked beautiful in this role and between good-looking actresses like her, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexa Vega, and Sofia Vergara, the movie had a lot of eye candy but not much else.
12 3 Days To Kill
As you'll notice, there are a few pictures on this list from movies in which Amber has acted. Unfortunately, most of them have been panned by critics and frankly aren't very good overall films, in spite of what talented actors they may feature. This is a great example. The 2014 crime flick 3 Days To Kill centered around a CIA plot to thwart a scheme by a nefarious arms dealer. It starred Kevin Costner, Connie Nielsen, and Amber Heard. The film was very watchable, and the script is more to blame for the bad reviews than any fault of the actors who did well with what they were given. In the movie, she played an elite CIA assassin and had platinum blond hair along with red lipstick; a look that is more memorable than just about anything else in this film. To be fair to this movie, though, there are some very decent action scenes, and there are worse ways to burn two hours.
11 Looking Wild
There's that blond hair and red lipstick look again. We liked it in 3 Days To Kill, and we like it in this shot as well. Back in 2012, she did a photoshoot with Terry Richardson. For those who don't recognize the name, he's a fashion photographer who has worked for tons of major brands, along with quite a few large publications. Tons of other major stars have done shoots with him as well, including Gisele Bundchen, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Emily Ratajkowski, and even Barack Obama.
The shoot with Amber was pretty simple and featured little more than her with blond hair and red lipstick, making fierce faces and pretending to bite stuff. Sometimes, simplicity is best, and in this case, when you have someone as beautiful as her, it doesn't take much.
10 In The Rum Diary
Like we said, The Rum Diary film wasn't great. Like so many movies based on literature, the big screen version wasn't terrible, but lost a lot of the spirit of the book. Overall, a good attempt and not a waste of time, but had too many problems to be a hit. In the movie, which deals with issues of poverty, class struggle, and media reluctance to address these issues, Amber played Chenault, a beautiful young woman married to Hal Sanderson (played by Aaron Eckhart), a less-than-honest realtor in Puerto Rico. Johnny Depp played Paul Kemp, a young struggling writer who ends up in conflict with Sanderson and ultimately ends up stealing his wife.
While the movie itself had plenty of ups and downs and general problems, Amber Heard looked stunning throughout and played the role of "fed up wife" flawlessly.
9 When You Miss The Couch But Still Look Great
If there is one comical aspect to photoshoots, it may be that furniture seems to never be used for its purpose. This picture is a great example of misusing a couch, but we aren't complaining. Whether she meant to sit on that couch and missed or she was just on the floor and wanted to prop up her upper half, she could probably do jumping jacks wearing a muddy tarp and still be gorgeous. One of Amber Heard's jobs prior to getting into acting was modeling, and she had a few jobs prior to making it to the big screen. Model work was her first step into show business, and she managed to get a few jobs at age 17 after dropping out of school.
Outside of her work life, two of her interesting passions include book collecting and classic cars. Two of her favorites cars are a 1968 Mustang and a 1967 Mercedes 250 SL.
8 Soaking Wet
While we've discussed quite a few of her past work, some of you might be asking when you can gaze upon this flawless woman again. Well, we have good news; she has three films coming up in the foreseeable future. Early September of 2017 will bring I Do...Until I Don't, a romantic comedy about marriage that looks somewhat funny. In that movie, her character looks like an absolute hippy, which isn't a stretch for her acting chops.
She has also completed her work on the upcoming Justice League movie that has an impressive cast including Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Henry Cavill. She will be portraying Mera, the girlfriend of Aquaman, who has been played by Jason Momoa. She will play the same role in 2018's Aquaman. The work for this film is ongoing and is expected to end around the end of September.
7 She Dated Who?
They recently split up, but for a while in 2017, Amber was seeing billionaire investor, inventor, and businessman Elon Musk. They got together sometime back in 2016, but as they explained after their split, a long distance relationship between two people who are absurdly busy and rarely see each other can be more taxing than nurturing. They claim to still care for each other and have had an amicable split with no wrongdoing on either side. We aren't too sure, but we'd imagine there is some frustration on the part of Johnny Depp, seeing his former woman with a wildly successful younger billionaire. Then again, Depp can probably walk into just about any room in the world and have several great-looking women throw themselves at him, so maybe he just doesn't care. She and Elon have implied that they are still on good terms and may try a relationship again in the future.
We have a love/hate relationship with shots like this in which the model looks like she's removing her clothes. On one hand, we enjoy the fantasy of a woman like this taking her clothes off, but at the same time, we'd love to see more and knowing that that's not going to happen is frustrating.
For those who are wondering whether they will ever get a chance to see her without anything on, we're sorry to be bearers of bad news, but it will likely never happen. Back in late 2016, she got into a legal case with the producers of London Fields. Initially, the production team sued her for not completing work on the film, but she counter-sued them, claiming that certain scenes, which included a body double, broke part of her contract that stipulated no nudity in the film. As far as we can tell, it doesn't look like Amber's future endeavors include bearing it all in front of the camera.
5 Red Dress
While Johnny Depp may have been the star of The Rum Diary, playing the main character, Amber Heard stole the show with her performance and absurdly good looks. She did much of the same at the premiere of the movie when she showed up in a red dress that was almost too hot for words. This shot was taken back in 2011, when the movie was released, and she was just 25 at the time. Like we said before, it is based on a Hunter S. Thompson book, and as such, you're better off reading that book. But if there is a reason to see the film, her bathing suit scenes and an Amber-centered scene in a dance club are good enough reasons. Come to think of it, you can probably get through the movie by just fast-forwarding until you see her on screen.
This wonderful shot is from a late 2015 edition of Marie Claire. In that interview, she talked about her upbringing in Texas. She dropped out of high school but earned her diploma from home. Her early life involved a lot of horseback riding, as her father owned a construction company but trained horses on the side. She recalled being brought up as the boy in the family by her father, who also took her hunting and fishing. Throughout her youth, she was determined to get into acting and wanted nothing more than to leave her 7,000-person suburb of Austin and make her way to Los Angeles. According to her own recollection, she was "on the road or on the run" for at least a year before making her way west from Texas. That move to California finally came when she was 17 years old, and while her parents and many friends didn't think it was a good idea, she is making a great career for herself.
3 Magic Mike XXL Premiere
Back in 2012, the movie Magic Mike came out, detailing Channing Tatum's experiences as a male stripper many years ago. The movie was pretty funny and a great success, and it spawned a sequel, Magic Mike XXL, which was released in 2015. Joining a decent cast that included obviously Tatum, but also Joe Manganiello, comedian Gabriel Eglasias, and Donald Glover, Amber played Zoe, a photographer who gets professionally involved with the male strippers in the series.
While most men would love for a woman as beautiful as her to give them a lap dance, the tables were turned in this case, as Channing Tatum was the one giving the lap dance to her. Apparently, he was very shy about the idea and repeatedly asked her if the scene was alright. Her only concern was whether or not she had to take her top off.
2 Over-The-Shoulder Look
While there are some celebrities who are in the business to make as much money as possible and make no contribution to the world outside of their talent, Amber Heard is a very active philanthropist, lending her time and money to quite a few worthy initiatives. She has been an active spokesperson for the LGBTQ community and identifies as bisexual, having dated women as well as men. She has expressed a desire to focus more on this kind of activism in the future after her relationship with Johnny Depp. She has also worked with domestic abuse awareness initiatives. She wrote an open letter in late December about her experiences while married to Johnny Depp, explaining often unseen challenges that abused women often face. While she alleged a constant state of emotional and physical abuse while the two were married, he contended that none of what she said was true and that she was "attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse.” He ended up paying her $7 million, which she donated to the ACLU and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.
1 Perfect? We Think So
While she isn't showing off a ton of skin in this shot, we couldn't find one that was any better in terms of showing off how good-looking she is. Obviously, there are plenty of other beautiful women in show business, but we are of the opinion that Amber Heard has what is among the most beautiful faces we've ever seen. She's very symmetrical, with great-looking eyes, nice lips, a flawless nose, and a nice face shape. It all comes together to form something incredible. We can see why Johnny Depp fell for her while they were filming The Rum Diary. In fact, we imagine most of you have fallen for her while watching her movies or even while just reading through this article. We don't blame you. She really is something special. We'd say we feel bad for Johnny, but based on all the information that was made public, the events of the breakup were all on him.
