We all followed the circus that went into the end of 2022. Now that the dust has started to settle, what is Amber Heard doing? Let’s do a quick check-in to see what Amber plans to do now that the drama off-screen seems to be dying down.
We checked our phones and watched the clips to see how the Heard versus Depp trial played out. Amber owed Johnny a lot of money, Johnny owed Amber a bit of money.
When it was all said and done, Amber decided to speed the ending process up a bit and settled with Depp for the amount of one million dollars.
She took to her personal Instagram page to announce her decision for the settlement, stating that it wasn’t her admitting to anything, but just wanting to put things behind her so she could move on with her life.
Is She Blacklisted From Hollywood?
With cancel culture the way it is right now, you get blacklisted in Hollywood faster than ever. When the accusations first came out and the world was anti-Depp, he was kicked out of every franchise he was supposed to star in.
Once the trial was over, it was Heard’s turn, and Hollywood Studios turned the cold shoulder on Amber, wanting to try to repair their relationship with Johnny.
Although Hollywood producers have stopped knocking on her door, Heard has two projects in the works, so her career hasn’t completely died.
She will star in the period drama thriller In the Fire, from director and writer Conor Allyn (No Man’s Land) which is currently in post.
And while many petitioned for her to be kicked out of the Aquaman sequel, she will reprise her role as Mera for the upcoming Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which is in post and should be out this year.
Though the petition failed to remove Heard completely, or replace her with the wanted Emilia Clarke, her role was reduced.
Adding Author To Her Resume
As with any Hollywood scandal, a book or TV show is sure to follow. While the Johnny Vs. Amber documentary already hit Hulu in 2022, the book deal is still to come.
Amber jumped on the opportunity to write the revenge tell-all, and publishers are in a frenzy over who gets to be the lucky winner. While no deal has been made yet, we’re sure it will only be a matter of time.
When one of us regular folk is involved in a scandal, we are stuck waiting it out exactly where it all happened. But celebrities have the means to get away.
Following the trial verdict, Amber took her daughter and sought some much-wanted peace in Mallorca. The actress and her young child have been in Costitx since the summer of 2021 while Heard figures out where their path will take them next.
Focus on Being a Mother
In the spring of 2021, Heard welcomed a daughter, Oonagh Paige, via surrogate. She kept the details pretty private until a few months later, enjoying their initial bonding time before going public in July of 2021. Amber stated that despite everything, she just wants to raise her daughter and put her energy into the family she has made.
Still Takes Time For the Public
Amber may be trying to lay low and keep her circle small, but that won’t stop her from taking time for the public. In December 2022, Spanish actor and artist Diego Ferro met with Amber, was able to chat with her a bit, and posted a beautiful photo of the pair smiling for the camera on his personal Instagram page.
It seems Heard is going to take some time to regroup and raise her little girl while taking her time to add more roles to her resume. Whether you side with Depp or Heard, Amber and her daughter deserve the privacy they want while they figure it all out.
