“It’s not part of my professional life. I want to be an artist. I don’t want to be a celebrity,” the 27-year-old actress says in the September 2013 issue of Flare magazine.
Since being spotted with Depp at a Rolling Stones concert earlier this year, Heard has been by the Lone Ranger star’s side, from international promo tours to museum outings with his kids. But the pair remained mum on their relationship in front of the media.
“I guess I could not hold hands with who I want to, but what kind of life would that be? I don’t want to change just because people are watching,” Flare’s cover girl says in the issue. “I’ve always been the person who says what she wants.”
