Renowned Hollywood actress, Amber Heard, has made a sudden departure from the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown, along with her daughter Oonagh. As per foreign media reports, the Daily Mail's journalist and editor, Alison Boshoff, confirmed on Thursday that the actress has relocated to the Spanish capital, Madrid.
Quiet Exit from Hollywood
A source close to Heard stated that the actress, who is fluent in Spanish, decided to make the move to Madrid for a quieter and more secluded life, away from the public eye. "I can reveal that Heard has quit Hollywood and quietly relocated to Spain with her young daughter Oonagh," Boshoff wrote in her article published on Thursday.
According to the Daily Mail, a friend of Heard said, "She's bilingual in Spanish and is happy there, raising her daughter away from all the noise." The friend added, "I don't think she is in any hurry to return to work or to Hollywood, but she will probably come back when the time is right, for the right project."
No Response from Representatives
Heard's representatives did not respond to media inquiries, but it is known that the actress sold her California residence for one million dollars last July, before spending her free time in Spain.
It's worth mentioning that Heard's ex-husband, Johnny Depp, also decided to leave Hollywood and relocate to Somerset, England, after several years of courtship with the actress.
Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard
Depp filed a $50 million lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard in 2017 after she wrote a Washington Post op-ed describing herself as a "public figure who represents domestic abuse." In response, Heard countersued Depp for $100 million, resulting in an explosive televised trial in which both were found liable for defamation, but Depp received a significant increase in damages.
It has been claimed that Depp abused Heard during their marriage, a claim the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star has consistently denied. Additionally, Depp said he was a victim of domestic violence - a claim some of his fans compared to Rihanna's own relationship with Chris Brown in which she experienced abuse.
"Survivors support survivors," one Twitter user wrote in support of the singer's choice. After the six-week trial, Depp claimed he was dropped from future "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies because of his ex-wife's allegations.
A role in the "Fantastic Beasts" film franchise was also lost to the actor. Depp amde several public appearances after the trial. In August, he made a surprise appearance at the MTV Awards, where a video of his face was superimposed on a life-size Moon Man floating above the stage.
"I just want you to know that I'm available for birthdays, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, weddings, vigils — anything you need," he joked with the crowd. In his first big-screen comeback, Depp is set to appear as King Louis XV in the upcoming French film “La Favorite”.
He also reprised his voice role as Johnny Puff in the animated TV series “Puffins Impossible,” and is set to direct a film about Italian artist Amede Modigliani, according to Deadline and the Hollywood Reporter.
