Amber Heard graces the cover of Allure magazine for its December issue, and its literally dazzling. The Justice League actress sported 'sparkly' eyes adorned with crystals and opened up about her sexuality in an interview with the outlet.

The ex-wife of Johnny Depp highlighted her beautiful eyes and lashes for the cover photo, teaming it up with bright red lipstick. Allure magazine posted the cover photo on their official Instagram page and wrote in the caption, "#AmberHeard is our December cover star, and we talked to her about everything from her latest movie role to the moment she learned she was "wrong, so f**king wrong."

When asked if she identified as bisexual, the actress told the outlet, "I don't identify as anything. I'm a person. I like who I like."

She further explained her decision to own her "private life" and shared to the magazine, "I happened to be dating a woman, and people started taking pictures of us walking to our car after dinner. I [was] holding her hand, and I realised that I have two options: I can let go of her hand and, when asked about it, I can say that my private life is my private life. Or, I could not let go and own it."

Heard – who was married to Johnny Depp from 2015 to 2017 and dated Tesla boss Elon Musk for over a year – was told by her Hollywood peers that she was throwing away her career as a lead actress after coming out as bisexual.

The 31-year-old star told Allure, "They pointed to no other working romantic lead, no other actress, that was out. I didn't come out. I was never in. It's limiting, that LGBTQ thing. It served a function as an umbrella for marginalised people to whom rights were being denied, but it loses its efficacy because of the nuanced nature of humanity.

"As we become more educated and expand the facts of our nature, we keep adding letters. It was a great shield, but now we're stuck behind it. It's so important to resist labels. I don't care how many letters you add. At some point, it's going to spell 'WE ARE HUMAN'," she asserted.
