Amber Heard Opens Up About Marriage to Johnny Depp for the First Time

"Nothing is a dramatic change. We've been together for a long time now, so it's been a fairly organic process," the actress tells ELLE magazine. "I have a fiercely independent spirit."

That being said, the 29-year-old starlet has a very real fear of the price of fame, which is inevitable when you're Depp's wife and a gorgeous actress.

"The thing that really scares me is the potential of losing my freedom. I never want for my life to lose the ability to transverse the world, with freedom and ease," she says. "The freedom and ease I have worked so hard to acquire for myself."

Heard also confesses that she feels her looks sometimes hold her back, because she's put in a "Barbie box."

"I feel like I'm constantly fighting against my exterior, or this exterior presentation of myself because of how I look or perhaps because of who I'm with," she tells the women's magazine.

Heard goes on to speak out about the lack of diverse roles for women in film.

"I get a stack of scripts, like, once a month, and most of the time, you find these placeholder girls that are there to provide a bounce for the male character," she explains. "So we know he's funny because she's serious and she's mad at him. We know he's strong because she needs saving. So really her job is to validate this personality trait of our hero or male. I mean we're trying to imitate life, and it seems to me a deeply saddening injustice that we are so uncreative and uninterested in developing representations of female life."
