Amber Heard is speaking up for victims of domestic violence.
The actress, whose own abuse allegations against ex-husband Johnny Depp made headlines earlier this year, teamed up with the #GirlGaze Project to create an emotionally-charged PSA released Friday. In the two-minute video, the actress speaks directly to the camera, often fighting back tears, as she describes in great detail the "shame" she felt through her experience.
"I guess there was a lot of shame attached to that label of 'victim,'" Heard explained. "It happens to so many women. When it happens in your home, behind closed doors, with someone you love, it's not as straightforward. If a stranger did this it would be a no-brainer."
