Amber Heard was just out and about in London to do press for Magic Mike XXL…but don’t ask her about her love life!
As one of the few female actresses in Magic Mike XXL, digs that the film flips sexuality on its head.
“It’s a film about men seeking sexual attention,” Heard, 29, told The Times of the stripper flick fronted by Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, and Matt Bomer. “My character’s function has nothing to do with her sexuality.”
Heard has always been attracted to roles that don’t pidgeon hole her for her sexuality or gender.
“I don’t want to have to deny my sexuality in order to be me. But I don’t want to have to be defined by it,” the bisexual actress told The Times (via UK’s Independent). “I’m fundamentally opposed to trying to edit myself to be palatable or popular. I don’t give a f–k. I fight, but I shouldn’t have to.”
Heard is the wife of Johnny Depp, but she also dated photographer Tasya van Ree before marrying. And as far as marriage, she doesn’t want THAT to define her, either:
“I have a fiercely independent spirit,” the actress told Elle. “The thing that really scares me is the potential of losing my freedom. I never want for my life to lose the ability to transverse the world, with freedom and ease. The freedom and ease I have worked so hard to acquire for myself.”

I’m always surprised that Heard is so well-spoken, but to be honest, it’s like…don’t marry JOHNNY DEPP if you don’t wanna talk about your love life, right? We alll wanna hear about your weird pirate roleplaying. ALL OF US.

Not only is Reese Witherspoon gloriously well-liked and successful, but she also has tons o’ taste!
In a new interview in the July/August issue of Elle Decor magazine, the actress (and lifestyle guru) opens up about her favorite things, from cities to preferred beverages. I know this doesn’t exactly count as news, but who cares?! It’s Reese we’re talking about here! Here’s a sneak peek of what the actress can’t get enough of!
Nashville: “The city has a sense of ease,” Witherspoon says. “It’s where I grew up, so I am blessed.” This fall, Witherspoon plants to open the first Draper James boutique in her home town. “We are aiming for that mix of traditional and contemporary that says, ‘I love where I am from, but I have also traveled the world,’” she tells Elle Decor. (Her online store, launched in May, is already up and running.)
Cafe Du Monde Coffee: “I like to prepare it in a French press,” Witherspoon says — though we’re sure she must have also tasted some of the chicory-flavored coffee at the original, iconic Café du Monde while in New Orleans filming Hot Pursuit.
Magnolia Trees in Bloom: “Only in the South,” she clarifies. “Everywhere else they look too skinny.”

After Bill Hudson publicly disowned his two eldest children, Kate and Oliver Hudson, on Sunday , apparently Goldie Hawn‘s kids were not surprised by his harsh words.
US Weekly’s source said the kids had “zero relationship” with their musician dad for years. “They don’t care and are not surprised by this,” the insider tells Us. “It’s been this way, and he’s been saying this stuff forever.”
Another insider close to Oliver echoes what the first source told Us. “They weren’t surprised at all that Bill spoke out,” the pal says. “He’s always trying to clear his name and his image.”
The whole exchange started on Father’s Day, when Oliver posted a throwback photo with Bill and his famous sister, dubbing the occasion, “Happy Abandonment Day.” And the rest- is celebrity family feud history.
Who do you think is the “villain” in this story? Or is everyone just immature and painfully misguided?

Amy Poehler is all about giving advice to young comedians- but her advice (like her career) is not for the weak!
The comedian offered some words of wisdom at the Upright Citizen Brigade‘s Del Close 17th Annual Marathon in New York City on Friday. Between perfoming and doing press conferences, the Parks and Recreation star told aspiring comedians that it’s super important to figure out why they really want to break into the business.
“If the goal is doing good stuff and working with your friends … if you’re doing that then you’re succeeding,” Poehler said. “If the goal is to be famous and make money – then you’re in real trouble.”
Poehler, 43, added, “It happens rarely and when that is your goal – being famous and making money – then you’re not paying attention to the things that will make you money. It’s a long life. It’s a long process. It’s a hard business this business doing comedy. It’s not for the weak. It’s not for the weak to be living in New York. It’s hard.”
Hear, hear. I’m glad Amy’s so realistic about her career, and especially when talking to others. While talented, she’s also extremely lucky and I know she wants to articulate the fact that comedy doesn’t often mean fame and glory. It’s the process!
Are you inspired by her words? I am.
