Why Amber Heard Deserves Your Respect [Dec. 8th, 2010|09:16 am]
International Bon Vivant and Raconteur

Amber Heard, ladies and gentlemen. Pretty. Talented. Jesse Eisenberg's neighbor in Zombieland. Seth Rogen's high school-aged girlfriend in Pineapple Express. Rumored to be a contender for the new Invisible Woman in a Fantastic Four reboot. And an incredibly fucking brave human being.

At a time when people are fighting tooth and nail in Congress and the courthouses to deny gays and lesbians the same basic rights as everyone else--to marry, to serve their country openly, even in some cases to teach in schools--Amber Heard publicly coming out of the closet as a lesbian is the most applause-worthy thing I've read about in ages. If there was ever a time to say, completely without irony, "You go, girl," this is it.

Not that I ever say that, because it sounds ridiculous coming from me, or from anyone really, but you know what I mean.

Oh, and ladies, she may be taken now but you know these Hollywood couples never last. Just give it a few months.
