Amber Heard recalled paranoia resulting in using a different name on her bank records
The BlackTree TV YouTube channel interviewed Heard to talk about the movie Paranoia. The interviewer asked the actor if there’s anything in real life that gets her paranoid. Heard related the question to her life in the “public eye,” resulting in her using another name.
“I think living this life, if you’re in the public eye at all, you have to learn to kind of always look over your shoulder,” Heard said. “You have to kind of always watch your back. I mean, I think it was like nine or so years ago that I stopped using my real name online and stopped, you know, bank records in a different name. All of those things that you have to do in this line of work to make sure you have a private life is actually pretty relevant to this in a way.
The actor avoids technology altogether
However, Heard explained to BlackTree TV that she’s actually not very tech-savvy. As a result, Heard simultaneously stays away from the things that cause trigger her paranoia. However, she is quite proficient in other skills, including working on cars.
“It’s hard,” Heard said. “I’m not so tech-savvy. I can change a fanbelt in my car, I can work on the car, I can help rebuild a bumper, or I mean, rebuild a carburetor if I need to. But I can’t e-mail without some assistance, it’s bad.”
Additionally, the actor explained that the biggest gadget that she couldn’t live without is her record player. She loves music, so it makes sense why it’s one of the only gadgets that she holds dear.
“My record player,” Heard responded regarding a piece of technology she can’t live without. “That’s how tech-savvy I am. I’m not kidding. (Laughs).”
