Amber Heard’s never been afraid to speak her mind. Late last year, she told FHM: “There’s very little filtering process when I speak. I’ve been kicked out of more private schools than one cares to brag about, because I hated adhering to a strict dress code. But hey, it’s much more fun my way.”

Wow. And all the more reason to celebrate when her ‘way’ includes significant screen time in a bikini, in upcoming horror movie The Stepfather (above), and, in her most high-profile role to date, alongside Johnny Depp in 2010’s Hunter S Thompson novel adaptation, The Rum Diary.

It’s going to be an excellent twelve months for this one.
