Amber Heard opens up to Elle Magazine about being a bisexual, “I’m not, and wasn’t ever, ashamed.”

Amber Heard came out as bisexual in 2010. The actress says she doesn’t regret revealing her sexuality. “I didn’t want to look like I was hiding anything,” the 27-year-old said in the latest issue of Elle. “I’m not, and wasn’t ever, ashamed.”

The ‘Paranoia’ actress says she’ll never be exactly who people want her to be. “I don’t imagine myself, my work, or my life, fitting into any kind of standardised path,” she said. “In fact, the idea of there even being a standard freaks me out a lot.”

Johnny Depp’s current girlfriend admitted she’s drawn to playing characters who are “somehow empowered or strong. People want to put me in a wedding dress and make me the object of affection, but I’d much rather shoot the gun and save the world. I’ve always fought against what was expected of me as much as I could,” she said.

Amber will soon be seen in upcoming film Paranoia, about an entry-level employee who must spy on his boss’s old mentor with dangerous consequences.

The actress recently spoke about the film, in which she stars alongside Liam Hemsworth, explaining: ‘I loved how you’re dealing with a lot of old themes like greed and power, but it’s such a modern story.

“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,” she told Flare magazine.


Kate Upton stuns on the September cover of Elle Magazine!

Kate Upton lands the September cover of Elle magazine, and she looks absolutely gorgeous!! She’s wearing a beautiful red dress by Lanvin. In her interview with the magazine, she opens up about being treated like a “dumb blonde,” confronting stereotypes, and even how she felt about that famous Sports Illustrated cover.

On people treating her like a “dumb blonde:”
“People deal with models like they are children. They think they can pull one over on you. It’s actually funny. I’m always like, I’m about to pull something on you, and you’re so focused on thinking I’m dumb you’re not even going to know.”

On the tiny tattoo of a cross on the inside of her finger:
“I was at a photo shoot and I was wearing a cross necklace that my mom bought me, and somebody made a joke like, ‘Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious.’ And then they took [my necklace] away. I was really affected by that. The whole thing made me realize that I do want [a cross] with me, at all times.”

On the fallout from her first Sports Illustrated cover:
“After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month. Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something. I’m not a toy, I’m a human. I’m not here to be used. I am a grown woman, and you need to figure your s–t out.”

On dating (she’s rumored to be seeing Dancing With The Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy:
“I really have never had a serious relationship in the industry. I’m just having fun. Obviously I have a very busy schedule at this time in my life, and I don’t put relationships as a priority.”

I like the interview. I think she’s absolutely right about people looking at models like a piece of meat and not real people. That has to be hard, when you look like Kate looks. I imagine it must be hard to go out and have a normal night out. Men WOULD want to just touch you, treat you like a piece of meat.

I think the pictures from INSIDE the magazine are actually better than the cover. SEE MORE (HOTTER) PICTURES OF KATE AFTER THE JUMP! More »

Katy Perry lands the September cover of ELLE UK!

Katy Perry lands the September issue of Elle UK, and she looks good, no? I feel like there’s some photoshopping going on, like what’s with her right arm? It’s obviously smaller than her left.  She’s wearing a Dolce & Gabbana outfit, and I think she looks pretty good. She isn’t promoting anything right now, although she is currently working on her third album, which will be titled ‘Prism.’

Anyhoo, the interview is weird, I thought. She brings up Kristen Stewart, John Mayer and Rihanna. I think her honesty is refreshing, it’s not the same bottled BS you get in other interviews.

On Kristen Stewart: “I sent her a text message saying: ‘I know you’ve seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I’m not that person. I’m just trying to be a friend to him but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of tits.’”

On her two breakups with John Mayer: “He pulled away. That was a big hello for me. I realized I could lose the person I loved and I had to deal with some things, issues I think a lot of women have. You can be strong in one aspect of your life but submissive in another.”

On loving “challenging” men: “I’m not interested in taming anyone – I’m pretty wild myself.”

On/Off BFF Rihanna: “I love her and every time I see her, I’m reminded of the light that she has. There’s a lot of dark in this business. I know a lot of people out there with the most detrimental entourages – they are the root of their demise. It’s really unfortunate but you can’t save these people. My days of celebrity saving are over!”


Amanda Seyfried lands the August cover of Elle Magazine, talks about her future husband: He is “just a fantasy right now”

Amanda Seyfried looks gorgeous on the new cover of Elle Magazine! The Lovelace actress opens up about her rules for sexual attraction, her current crush, and her decision to take on the title role in the racy new film Lovelace.

On accepting the title role of Linda Lovelace in the upcoming feature film Lovelace, in theaters Aug. 9:

“I read the script and I was like, ‘Wow, this is the riskiest thing that’s happening [in Hollywood] right now.’ The first thing you think about is that it could have ruined my career. At the same time, I was like, ‘This is my chance to show them, to show the industry, to be recognized.’”

On the need for physical attraction in a relationship:

“Everybody I’ve dated I’ve been sexually attracted to immediately. Sparks don’t grow- your vagina doesn’t become more inclined to wanting someone just because you’re around them.”

On her ex-boyfriend Dominic Cooper:

“We love each other… He’ll always be in my life regardless of what his girlfriends or future wife think.  I’m never going to be with a guy that can’t deal with my friendship with him.”

On her current crush:

“[He’s] someone separate from my industry life- I’ve known him since he was 16… I picture him as the father of my children all the time. But it is a fantasy right now.”
