Amber Heard and I were both born in Austin. This weekend, the “Magic Mike XXL” actress went ziplining in Australia with a space-bound automotive innovator worth $15 billion. I cleaned my bathroom and listened to podcasts.
According to multiple reports, Heard and Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk are officially an item. The actress and mogul both posted photos to their respective Instagram accounts that point to a little lipstick-heavy PDA.
According to TMZ, the pair met up for a zipline adventure at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast, joined by two of Musk’s five sons. Heard is currently filming “Aquaman” down under, reprising her upcoming “Justice League” role as the underwater superhero’s queen, Mera.
TMZ pegs the Heard/Musk pairing at a year old, and according to People, romantic rumors began to circulate around that time. Last summer, Hollywood Reporter got the scoop that Musk had emailed Austin director Robert Rodriguez in 2013 asking to meet Heard, who co-starred in “Machete Kills.”
According to E! News:
An insider confirmed to E! News in August that the potential lovebirds were hanging out together at the Delano South Beach hotel in Miami Beach, only to reunite a handful of other times down the line.
Heard’s Lone Star pedigree is strong. She made her film debut in 2004’s “Friday Night Lights” and received the Texas Film Hall of Fame’s Rising Star award in 2014. She divorced actor Johnny Depp last year.View full experience
