Amber Heard at NYC Create & Cultivate event for millennial women: ‘We are a part of a vast army of voices that are not accepting silence’
Amber Heard continues to be one of the voices of her generation.
The 33-year-old actress said millennial women are moving things forward as she appeared at the Create & Cultivate conference Saturday at the Industry City venue in Brooklyn, New York Saturday.
‘We are a part of a vast army of voices that are not accepting silence,’ the Austin, Texas-born beauty said at the Mastercard-sponsored function, which was attended by an estimated crowd of 1,500.

The organization, which has been running for seven years, said it aims with the event to unite ’80+ CEOs, content creators and celebrities … to discuss key topics surrounding entrepreneurship, the digital space, and life as a modern working woman.’
Heard, who has been in the headlines as of late amid her ongoing legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp, wore a honey yellow two-piece ensemble of a coat and pants made of patterned silk. She had her lustrous blonde locks parted and wore multiple earrings and necklaces to the luxe professional event.
Heard, who played Mera to Jason Momoa’s Aquaman in the 2018 blockbuster, encouraged the crowd at the event to seek to make a difference, saying that ‘only the people who benefit from the status quo don’t want to change it … the world that’s better for someone else is going to be an inherently better world for you.’
Heard has been out and about in the city this week, as on Wednesday she attended the Planned Parenthood NY Spring Gala, opening up there to W Magazine about why she will always back the organization, which remains at the center of political debates.

‘Planned Parenthood is doing work on behalf of people who have no voice and no position of power,’ said the actress. ‘I can’t be more proud to represent the future and our place in this debate, which is saying, “We’re not going to continue to allow people who have never had their feet in the stirrups to decide what we do with our bodies.”‘
She added, ‘If you’ve not had your feet in the stirrups, mind your own f***ing business.’
Other celebrities at Saturday’s event included Martha Stewart, Kate Walsh, Ashley Graham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
