  5. After losing her best friend in a car crash at the age of 16, Heard decided there was no God. "That was the hardest blow emotionally that I have ever had to endure," she told USA Today. "Suddenly, you realise tomorrow might not come. Now I live by the motto, 'Today is what I have.'" Soon after her friend's death, Heard's then-boyfriend introduced her to Russian writer Ayn Rand. "I've read all of her books. Ever since then, I have been obsessed with her ideals. All I've ever needed is myself," she said.
  6. She was very involved in her high school's drama department before dropping out at age 17 to pursue modeling.

"I auditioned several times for this part, and it was a grueling process in my opinion, just because of nerves and a lot of energy that goes into any such process," she asserts. "But I think the best things in life and the most rewarding things in life are the ones that don't come easy anyway, so this was no exception to the standard."

  29. Depp says the age gap doesn't make a difference in their relationship. He told the Daily Mail: "I don't think so. I've got a lot of life experience, certainly, but I don't feel like I'm looking down on her. I actually feel like she's the one inspiring me."

She's quite something, you know. She's very special."
  31. She is quite a private person. "It's not part of my professional life. I want to be an artist," she told Flare magazine in 2013. She'll fit right in with notoriously private Depp, then, with his private jets and private islands.

  35. She's a prankster. At the LA premiere of Paranoia, Amber Heard fessed up to hatching a naughty hoax to shock co-star Liam Hemsworth.

But I always knew what I was doing in a movie. If my role was nothing but that, I could make the decision, as an adult, whether to use it to my advantage or not."
  38. It might be hard to imagine how anyone could ever forget a flawless mug like Heard's, however her Paranoia co-star Richard Dreyfuss managed to do so on more than one occasion!
