Amber Heard Comes Out as a Lesbian

by at . Comments

Actress Amber Heard has come out as a lesbian, proudly walking the red carpet with her partner Tasya van Ree at the GLAAD 25th anniversary bash in L.A.

Heard has appeared in films like The Informers, Zombieland and Pineapple Express, and will be Johnny Depp's leading lady in his upcoming The Rum Diary.

Amber said she had to ask herself if by being closeted, she was part of the problem in denying "millions of hard-working, tax paying Americans" their rights.

Amber and Tasya make a cute couple.

"I think GLAAD is one of the many reasons that I, as a 24-year-old, can come out now," she explained along side Tasya van Ree, who is a photographer and artist.

She and Heard have quietly been together since 2008. "She is beautiful," Heard said of van Ree.  "I mean, you'd have to be crazy not to want to go out with her!"

We're happy for Amber and wish the couple the best.
