Lesbian actress Amber Heard has said people in her profession are dissuaded from coming out in Hollywood and end up becoming part of a “detrimental lie”.
The Rum Diary star told Women’s Health magazine: “You can’t respect yourself if you’re afraid to be who you are. It requires bravery to do something no one else around you is doing.
“But the risk was outweighed by the possibility of playing into this horribly detrimental lie that some in Hollywood perpetuate.”
Heard adds her voice to a spectrum of opinion on the subject.
