Amber Heard has tested out the concept of girl-on-girl action on her Instagram. The “Justice League” actress took to the platform on Wednesday with an erotically-charged photo, plus a full explanation of what was going on.
Amber has mostly made relationship headlines with males over the years – the 33-year-old’s divorce from Johnny Depp was a very messy deal – but the actress has addressed her bisexuality in interviews.
Now, it looks like Amber braved a photoshoot (and a discussion) exploring lesbian themes.
You can see the photo here – keep reading for the conversation.
The photo may not have shown much flesh, but it did tick boxes for exploring erotica territory. The black-and-white snap showed Amber photographed from the neck up and wearing a high-collared shirt, hat, and eye mask.
To the left of Amber’s main photo, an image appearing to show the actress biting a piece of dark material offered a double finish – one Amber was, effectively, sneaking up on the other.
“Amber vs. Amber” appeared in text in the image, with the caption stating that Amber had been approached by celebrity photographer Ellen von Unwerth:
“I want to shoot you,” Ellen had told Amber.
“Oh no, what now?” Amber had replied.
“I want to do a nod to Lesbian Erotica!” Ellen continued.
The caption continued to outline the conversation, with Amber replying that she was “listening.”
“Where you’re being tied up by a sexy woman,” Ellen said.
“Ooo, who?!” Amber asked, only to be told that it would be herself.
Vs. Magazine was also mentioned in the actress’ caption, alongside Ellen’s Instagram handle.
The update appears to have proven a hit. It managed to clock over 15,000 likes within just 45 minutes of going live. Fan responses largely appeared positive, with many a user sending in a fire emoji.
Amber has addressed being bisexual many times over the years. In 2010, the actress refused to place a label on herself.
“I don’t label myself one way or another—I have had successful relationships with men and now a woman. I love who I love; it’s the person that matters,” she said.
Six years later, in 2017, Amber revealed that she’d been warned not to speak of her sexuality.
“Everyone told me: ‘You cannot do this,” she told Allure, adding:
“Everyone said: ‘You’re throwing it all away. You can’t do this to your career.’ And I said, ‘I cannot do this any other way. Watch me.’ ”
More recently, Amber has opened up to reveal that her decision to go public with her bisexuality was because she felt she owed it to society.
“To be silent about something means to admit underneath that that thing is wrong. But I knew it was not like that,” the star told Italian magazine IO Donna.
All of the above quotes were collated by Cosmopolitan.
Amber’s Instagram mostly showcases her career, achievements, and travels. The star did, however, spark a little concern in 2020 by appearing in multiple images showing her wearing a medical foot boot.
