Amber Heard: I'm not ashamed of being bisexual

Amber Heard may be dating superstar Johnny Depp right now, but that doesn't mean she is limiting herself in her choice of potential mates.

The "Paranoia" actress who will next be seen in "Machete Kills" recently told Elle magazine she has no qualms about having revealed her bisexuality in 2010.

"I didn't want to look like I was hiding anything," she said. "I'm not, and wasn't ever, ashamed."

The actress dated dated photographer Tasya van Ree from 2008 to 2012, and has publicly discussed before how much bravery it can take to be out in Hollywood.

A former model, Heard worked with Depp on the 2011 film "The Rum Diary" and they carried their romance off screen after he split from Vanessa Paradis, Depp's longtime love and mother of his two kids. She dodged questions from Elle about their relationship and the ever-swirling engagement rumors.

"I don't imagine myself, my work, or my life, fitting into any kind of standardized path," she said. "In fact, the idea of there even being a standard freaks me out a lot."

    She ought to be ashamed. I'll bet her parents sure are, and if not they're at fault for this.

      Umm... there's nothing wrong with being gay or bi, so there's no reason for her or her parents to be ashamed. It's 2013. Grow up.

      @Johnathan. It's simply YOUR opinion that there isn't anything to be ashamed of. Natty's opinion is that her parents are ashamed. It's 2013, grow up and realize that both opinions are valid. On a personal note...what kind of **** can't focus on one person in a relationship?

    The people who should be ashamed are those who feel they have the right to condem and judge others when their actions have 0 impact on the bigot's lives. People should mind their own f-ing business and stop quoting the stooopid old book to vindicate themselves- it's all lies anyway.

      It's tooth-less junk-y prosti-tutes such as yourself that are the true harm to the american health care service. I'm sure you are too stoopid to get a real job so you must be some kind of cheap ho-oker in Texas somewhere. We pay for your abor-tions because you are too stoopid to figure out how to unroll a con-dom for your clients. Fool.

      @Ellen , personally I’m offended that my health care premiums subsidize the medical expenses of serial breeders such as you, squeezing out more and more children to pollute and overpopulate an already polluted and overpopulated world. Plus, my children are forcibly exposed to your violent, drug induced, misogynistic, self-absorbed and over s exualized lifestyle every time they turn on the TV or open a magazine. And the hatred that your religion propagates is astounding, and frankly unacceptable. Why would you endorse a mythology such as that when it only makes you close minded and hateful? Is it because you’re frightened of reality, or because you’re stupid and unable to think for yourself?

      That's what Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, and Mary Kay Letourneau said. There are parameters of normal human behavior, and deviant behavior beyond that. This community seeks to normalize their perversions, and it won't happen. M.A.P. bragging about going on holiday to m0lest Thai boys? That is sick. By your logic, why shouldn't we legalize harems or polygamy in America? It's all consensual. If I can show my great dane or donkey loves me, why shouldn't we marry? Who are you to judge? That's tolerance to a fault. Joseph Stalin and Chairman Mao should not be ashamed, sayeth Peace. Whatever...

      The "logic" of your "argument" there is so flawed, so far off base and spun out of control that I'm seriously concerned you might be a danger to yourself, other people and/or property. I hope for your sake you are getting counseling or that you've just forgotten to take your meds lately.
