Amber Heard: Net Worth, Age, Height, Ethnicity, Husband, &Filmography


Due to the defamation lawsuit instituted by Johnny Depp against her, Amber Heard has become the talk of the town in the worst way possible because the evidence pointed to the possibility that she may have been an abusive wife to Depp during the subsistence of their marriage. Whatever the case may be, Amber Heard is still quite the celebrity, especially after the entire highly-publicized trial. So, we are here to look at Amber Heard’s net worth, age, height, ethnicity, relationships, and filmography.

Amber Heard Net Worth

Amber Heard is currently the talk of the town because of the recently concluded defamation case that her ex-husband Johnny Depp instituted against her. A good part of this entire case was brought up to how Depp alleged that Heard defamed him through an essay that she wrote in the Washington Post as she said that she was the victim of domestic violence and abuse. With Depp arguing that he lost projects due to his defamed name, he instituted a $50 million case against his ex-wife.

However, Amber Heard countered with a $100 million case in response to Johnny Depp’s party, claiming that she was a liar and that the entire allegations of abuse against Depp were merely fabricated. This led to a trial that lasted for more than six weeks until the jury handed out its verdict early in June of 2022.

Prior to the entire case against Johnny Depp, Amber Heard was reported to have a net worth of around $7 million. A good part of her money came from salaries and endorsements between 2013 and 2019, as she was able to earn around $3 million in 2019. This was presented as evidence during the Depp vs. Heard trial.

Heard also earned a good amount of money from the four-picture deal she has with Warner Brothers for the Aquaman and Justice League movies. It was estimated that she was able to earn a million in her first appearance in Aquaman and was guaranteed around $2 million for Aquaman 2 and another $3 to 4 million for a third film. Testimony also revealed that she earned around $200,000 per episode on the series called The Stand, as she had a total payday of $1.8 million for that series.

The other sources of her net worth came from the money she got after the divorce from Johnny Depp. She received a total of $7 million for the settlement of her divorce with her ex-husband as she promised to donate the money to charity. However, testimony has shown that she hasn’t turned over the money she pledged to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the ACLU, as she was $3.4 million shy of the donations that she promised to those organizations. The hospital even asked Heard if she would actually give the money that she pledged, but she ended up saying that she was experiencing financial problems.

Before the divorce, she also filed for spousal support that asked for $50,000 a month from Johnny Depp to cover certain expenses because she wasn’t earning a lot from the different projects that she was involved in. She even asked Depp to allow her to live in three of the penthouse apartments that he owned in Los Angeles and to allow her to continue to use the Range Rover that they once owned together. But she eventually withdrew her spousal support request after the divorce settlement.

In June of 2022, a Virginia jury found Amber Heard guilty of defaming Johnny Depp. The jury awarded Depp a total of $15 million that was made up of the $10 million in compensatory damage and then another $5 million in punitive damages. However, the punitive damages were reduced to only $350,000 in compliance with Virginia law that puts a cap on how much a person can owe another for punitive damages. As such, Amber Heard was set to pay Depp a total of $10.35 million. 

Meanwhile, the jury also awarded $2 million to Amber Heard because of the statements made by Depp’s lawyers against her. As such, the total is around $8.35 million that she owes to Johnny Depp.

With that, her current net worth is estimated at around $1.5 million. But there was actually a time when her net worth on Celebrity Net Worth was changed to -$8 million because she owed $15 million to Johnny Depp from her $7 million net worth.

But after the current estimates were made, her current net worth is estimated to be around $1.5 million based on the different properties that she owns and the money she is getting from her different projects.

Unless Amber Heard invests her money the proper way, she stands to lose more money in the future because there is a good possibility that she won’t be getting more projects anytime soon. As such, if she doesn’t use her money for the right investments, her net worth might fall below a million in the future.

However, in 2016, she filed for divorce from Depp and even obtained a restraining order because she said that she had been the victim of abuse and violence during their relationship.

Amber Heard Filmography

Amber Laura Heard was born in Austin, Texas, but was raised just outside of Texas as she learned to hunt and fish and even ride horses when she was just young. She entered beauty pageants when she was still just a young girl and eventually dropped out of her Catholic school at the age of 17 to move to New York in the hopes of becoming a model and an actress. After finding a bit of success as a model, she shifted her focus on acting and moved to Los Angeles, where she found herself starring in music videos and then in minor roles in smaller movies.

She later started her career as an actress by appearing in music videos. After that, she appeared in a TV show called Jack & Bobby and went on to make appearances in other shows like The Mountain and The OC. Her first film appearance came in 2004 when she was in Friday Night Lights, as the movie allowed her to build her career due to its success. After that, she appeared in movies like Drop Dead Sexy, North Country, Side FX, Price to Pay, You Are Here, and Alpha Dog.

From there, she moved up to bigger orles when she appeared in the teen drama called Hidden Palms, which wasn’t the best series in terms of its critical reception as it got canceled after just one season. She also appeared in Remember the Daze, which also isn’t a particularly good movie.

It was in 2008 that she started breaking out as she appeared in better roles such as the stoner comedy Pineapple Express, where she worked together with James Franco and Seth Rogen. She saw a central role in the teen action movie entitled Never Back Down, as this was the movie that eventually allowed her to see more roles in her career. But she also saw bad movies in the form of The Informers, and All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.

Even though her short appearance in Zombieland proved to be a good step in the right direction, she also ended up in box office flops like The Joneses and The Stepfather. She then appeared in smaller independent movies that ended up failing at the box office. In 2011, however, her career started to pick up after working with Johnny Depp in the 2011 movie The Rum Diary. She said it herself that she was a no-name actress at that time but was lucky enough to connect with him, although we do know what had happened to their relationship more than a decade after they met.

In 2015, Amber Heard saw success in the form of Magic Mike XXL, The Danish Girl, The Adderall Diaries, and One More Time. It wasn’t a coincidence that, during this time, she was already with Depp, as the megastar probably helped improve her name in the industry. These films were quite successful in terms of their critical and commercial performances. 

Eventually, Heard saw her biggest role as Mera in the DC Extended Universe when she appeared in Justice League. She reprised her role in the 2018 Aquaman movie and is set to return in the sequel, which is going to be released sometime in 2023.
