There are a lot of beautiful women in the acting industry these days but it seems that there are many of them who feel that their looks actual take away from their acting talents. We have had a number of these stunning actresses coming out and insisting that they are not happy with their sex symbol tags and it looks like another has now voiced her disagreement with it.
Amber Heard has been in the acting industry for many years now and has always been considered one of the most beautiful women in the industry. Amber stars in the new movie When I Live My Life Over Again, and while promoting the movie at the Tribeca Film Festival, she admitted that she loved her role in the movie, as it did not over-sexualise her like some of her past projects.
Heard was being interviewed by Indie Wire, when she told them, "I know, it's been what I've fought for since the first day on the scene. Superficial is far less interesting primarily because it's the result of things that are out of my control, so it's independent of one's character and how one looks."
She added, "It can help define one's character but looks in and of themselves are not the result of any hard work, bravery, substance, etc., so they're far less interesting qualities to bear in a movie or to take on within a character. So for me, I fought really hard to find roles that weren't defined by their sexuality. However, I haven't, in the reverse, shied away from roles like that."
It will be interesting to see what sort of roles Amber Heard will take on in the future and whether she will let the over-sexualising of actresses impact those decisions.
