She is notoriously private about her relationship with fellow actor Johnny Depp but in a recent interview Amber Heard has opened up about the difficulties of maintaining a relationship whilst traveling around the world admitting that it is easier to date someone who is in the same industry.

Amber said, ‘It is really hard when you spend your life living out of a suitcase. But it really does weed out superficial people – if someone is still with you after the second movie then they’re probably a good one! I like to trust people in general – it’s the southern girl in me.’

The actress, who met Johnny when they starred in the Rum Diaries together also opened up in the interview about her respect for Angelina Jolie. 'I wish I could hold my tongue more, but I’m just not very good at it… Angelina Jolie is an incredible example – just an incredible force in terms of challenging the status quo.’

Amber went on to explain that she felt it was good that Angelina had spoken out about her sexuality, 'I think she talked about being bisexual honestly, which I love her for. Honesty is best – staying quiet can be so detrimental.' Amber herself came out as bi  in 2010 at the GLAAD awards. At the time she was dating photographer Tasya van Ree and said, ‘Personally think that if you deny something or if you hide something, you're inadvertently admitting it's wrong.’

She went on to add, ‘I don't feel like I'm wrong. I don't feel like millions of people are wrong because they love who they love or they were born how they were born.' She and Tasya eventually split, she then started dating Johnny on and off in 2011.
