“Is this a flex?” Amber Heard has posed this question to her followers on Instagram, in a playful post where she sports some snazzy cowboy boots. The Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom star has already had quite the reaction to the post, racking up over 55 thousand likes in just five hours. This may prove an answer to the question posed by Heard, indeed it would seem that it is a flex. You can see the images below.
The post seen below shows Amber Heard in a light and breezy mood. This comes in great contrast to the world that Heard has found herself in recent years. The drama surrounding her comes down to her very public fallout from her divorce to ex-husband Johnny Depp.
The latest spin in this saga came just weeks ago. In a series of documents that hit social media, it came to light that Amber Heard wanted to prevent Depp and his lawyers from questioning Heard in legal proceedings on matters related to Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. In particular, whether the production team ever considered firing the actress. On this matter, the producer of the film Peter Safran spoke to Deadline saying that no such event would occur, despite the calls from some fans to axe the actress from the film. “I don’t think we’re ever going to react to, honestly, pure fan pressure.”
Amber Heard’s position on the Aquaman project was coming under increasing pressure from enranged fans of Depp, who feel that his sacking by Warner Bros from the Fantastic Beasts films was unjust. The support for Heard’s termination became so strong there is even an online petition on change.org which has other 1.8 million signatures wishing for her removal from the film. Amber Heard has accused Depp of being an abusive partner, whereas Depp insists that any evidence supporting Heard’s claims are allegedly falsified. Hence the fan outrage of those supporting the former Pirates of the Caribbean star. Depp’s termination from Fantastic Beasts came after he lost a libel case against a UK Newspaper that claimed he was an abusive partner. Depp has since had bids to overturn that ruling rejected.
The whole affair has been documented via various media outlets countless times over the years and must serve as a major distraction for both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard as they try to move on with their lives and put the situation behind them. However, Amber Heard’s latest post shows that she is indeed making the most of life and keeping a positive outlook. Not only is she returning to the world of DC Comics with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, but the actress has also been cast in a lead role in director Conor Allyn’s new film, In the Fire. Not only that but this light-hearted cowboy boot pic is just the latest in a long line of fun social media posts from Amber Heard. Preceding the cowboy boots post are the likes of a fun workout picture Amber Heard posted where she improvised the use of a young toddler in place of dumbbells. Amidst what can often be a cruel and judgmental gaze from lobbying fan groups and petitions, let alone legal proceedings, Amber Heard shows no signs of letting it knock her stride.
