Amber Heard Seen Kissing It Director Andy Muschietti Amid Legal Battle with Ex Johnny Depp
Amber Heard seems to have a new man in her life
Amber Heard is getting cozy with a new beau, It director Andy Muschietti.
Heard, 32, was seen locking lips with the 45-year-old Argentine filmmaker on Wednesday in Los Angeles. The Aquaman actress was all smiles while walking with Muschietti.
She wore a black scoop neck top, black skirt and boots and a tan trench coat. Muschietti accompanied her while wearing brown slacks, a maroon sweater, and a similar tan jacket.
Muschietti is directing the sequel to It, titled It: Chapter Two, which will star James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader and Bill Skarsgård, who is reprising his role as Pennywise the Clown. Muschietti also directed the 2013 horror film Mama.
The sighting comes after Heard sparked dating rumors with art dealer Vito Schnabel in July of last year when they stepped out hand-in-hand at Wimbledon in London.
Heard previously dated Tasya van Ree for four years before they split in 2012. In 2015, she married Johnny Depp, though they split 15 months later. Their divorce was finalized in January 2017. She has also been in a relationship with Tesla founder Elon Musk.
Her marriage to the actor ended in controversy and acrimony. Depp recently filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against the Aquaman actress calling her allegations of domestic violence against him a “hoax.”
The lawsuit came after Heard wrote an op-ed in December 2018 for the Washington Post titled, “I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change.”
In response to Depp’s lawsuit, Heard’s rep said in a statement: “This frivolous action is just the latest of Johnny Depp’s repeated efforts to silence Amber Heard. She will not be silenced.”
