Amber Heard is speaking up against domestic violence in a public service announcement for GirlGaze Project.
Following on from her divorce with Johnny Depp earlier this year after alleging that the actor was 'verbally and physically abusive' throughout their relationship, Amber can be seen fighting back the tears in the YouTube video.
'How is this happening to me? I’m strong, smart, I’m not a victim,’ she states.
‘I guess there was a lot of shame attached to that, the label of victim.
‘It happens to so many women you know. When it happens in your home behind closed doors with someone you love, it’s not straightforward. If a stranger did this it would be a no-brainer.'
The actress added: 'Just as a woman having gone through this in the public stage, in the public arena that I did it, I have a unique opportunity to remind other women this doesn’t have to be the way it is, you don’t have to do it alone, you’re not alone. We can change this’.
The Danish Girl star filed a restraining order against Depp in May, which was later dismissed.
