She’s dating one of the great hunks of the world (Johnny Depp), but just last year, actress Amber Heard, 27, was in a long-term, serious relationship with a woman. (Photographer Tasya van Ree, to be precise.)

In a chat with Elle, Heard, who can next be seen alongside Liam Hemsworth in Paranoia, wants to set the record straight about her sexuality. Specifically, why she decided to come out publicly in 2010.

I didn’t want to look like I was hiding anything,” she says. “I’m not, and wasn’t ever, ashamed.”

Of course, Heard doesn’t say a peep about her romance with Depp during the interview, but does take a strong stance on the whole marriage-and-kids trope.

I don’t imagine myself, my work, or my life, fitting into any kind of standardized path. In fact, the idea of there even being a standard freaks me out a lot.”

So, there you have it.
