Amber Heard: Women are 'loud, vocal and upset'

Amber Heard is a woman of many talents.

She's an A-list actress, she can sing and most importantly, she has a way with words. Not only is Heard bilingual (we witnessed her fluent Spanish firsthand on the red carpet) but the 29-year-old actress has become a force in many of today's hard-hitting movements. From "Me Too" to "Time's Up" and a frequent advocate for women's and LGBTQI rights, Heard has successfully made her voice heard.

AOL caught up with the "Aquaman" actress at the L’Oréal Paris 13th Anniversary of its Women of Worth celebration. Back in May, L’Oréal announced Amber as their newest global spokesperson, joining the likes of Eva Longoria and Julianne Moore who were also in attendance.

The celebration, which took place in New York City, honored philanthropic women who are making a difference in their neighborhoods. Amber expressed her excitement of how women, who might not necessarily be movie stars or have mega platforms, are pioneering and taking charge.

"This is the incredible thing about living today. We are in the middle of seeing exactly how much power has shifted. Our world has changed dramatically and it has changed, not because of activists or actors or celebrities or politicians or leaders or outdated institutions," she said. "It's because now the power is quite literally in your hand. And the power of us connecting with one another and finding a global community -- one that isn't responding to topical pressures that are limited to geography or certain social economic conditions, but rather one that is responding to our unique shared humanity and the trials that go with experiencing that as one life on one globe is what connects us."

"We can continue to use the power that's in your hand right now and find community with one another, break down lines barriers and labels and start pushing the conversation forward.

The "Pineapple Express" actress also addressed the recent midterm elections and the outcome of the House elects. She explained how we can all do our part to accomplish world change and it starts by "picking up our phones."

"We [women] are half the population. We are increasingly loud, vocal and upset. With that knowledge and with that awareness comes also the inherent and explicit realization and recognition of injustice. I, for one, believe that injustice is not sustainable. I'm excited to see a record number of women step up to the plate because we've been waiting for so long...It won't be done for us."

"If we want to affect world change we've got to pick up our phones, we've got to organize, we've got to communicate with one another and we've got to support one another and only then, when we actually take action, when we pick up the pens and we change how things are written will we start to see world change," she continued.
