Actress Amber Heard is one of Hollywood’s most enthralling women. She openly declared her lesbianism last year and is embracing her sexuality in a racy new photo shoot by girlfriend Tasya van Ree.
Ree, a professional photographer, captured Heard’s smoldering sexuality in the series, which features her topless in several shots.

The actress came out as a lesbian at the GLAAD 25th Anniversary Celebration in December 2010.
Heard’s sexuality had been an open secret for a couple of years.
She has been dating Ree, off and on, since 2008. Nonetheless she felt it necessary to openly declare that she is gay.
Coming out was both a personal and moral triumph, she told the gay rights-focused entertainment site AfterEllen.com.
“I think when I became aware of my role in the media, I had to ask myself an important question ‘Am I part of the problem?’” she said.
The “Rum Diary” star told the latest issue of Men’s Health magazine that it is important for celebrities to acknowledge their sexuality.
“You can’t respect yourself if you’re afraid to be who you are,” she said. “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.”
