What is Amber Heard Net Worth ?
Amber Heard is an American actress and model who has a net worth of $8 million. Although she initially tried to break into the modeling world, she later became a successful actress. Known for her starring roles in various films, Heard has also appeared on numerous television series. She is also known for her involvement in activism, especially in regard to LGBTQ rights.
Amber Laura Heard was born on April 22nd of 1986 in Austin, Texas. Raised outside of Texas alongside one sibling, Heard grew up riding horses, hunting, and fishing. Although she attended Catholic high school and entered beauty pageants as a teen, she later became disillusioned with religion and the Texan lifestyle that surrounded her. As a result, she dropped out of school at 17 and moved to New York City.
Although she initially found work as a model in New York, she shifted her attention to acting and subsequently moved to Los Angeles.
Amber Heard started her acting career with a slew of appearances in music videos. She then appeared in TV shows such as Jack & Bobby, The Mountain, and The O.C. Her first appearance in a film came in 2004 with Friday Night Lights.
The movie was successful, and it helped build her notoriety in the film world. She then booked further roles in Drop Dead Sexy, North Country, Side FX, Price to Pay, You Are Here, and Alpha Dog. She also started to appear on television shows like Criminal Minds and Californication.
Amber Heard moved on to more central roles, starring in the teen drama Hidden Palms. Unfortunately, the show received poor reviews from critics and was ultimately canceled after just eight episodes. Heard also starred in the movie Remember the Daze, which was another project that was steamrollered by poor reviews.
However, by 2008 Amber Heard was finally starting to break through and become one of Hollywood’s top leading ladies. On this year, she appeared in the stoner comedy Pineapple Express alongside James Franco and Seth Rogen. She also starred in Never Back Down.
Both of these films were financial successes, proving Amber Heard could lift projects to new heights. However, she also continued to appear in unsuccessful films such as The Informers and All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.
In 2009, Amber Heard followed this pattern of booking roles on both successful and unsuccessful films. Although Zombieland proved to be a major step forward for her career, she also filled out the year with box office flops and critical failures such as The Joneses and The Stepfather.
During the next period, Heard focused more heavily on independent films such as ExTerminators, The River Why, and And Soon the Darkness. She also appeared in The Ward – another critical failure that delivered a mediocre box office performance.
In 2016, Amber Heard filed for spousal support after separating from Johnny Depp. She asked for $50,000 per month from Depp to cover various expenses. Court documents revealed that according to Heard, her monthly expenses included costs like $10,000 for rent, $2,000 a month for eating out, and $10,000 for pet supplies and legal costs.
She backed up her effort by claiming she was making a very small income, including $27,000 in royalties from various films.
Documents also revealed that although she had earned $250,000 from her various endeavors in 2014, she spent almost $210,000 – leaving her with a net income of only $40,000 for the year. Amber Heard also submitted documents that proved her savings only amounted to $25,000 at the time. Ultimately, Amber Heard withdrew her request for spousal support.
