The American actress and model gained recognition for her acting talent as well as her activism, particularly in advocating for LGBTQ rights. But her net worth dropped to approximately $500,000 after taking a hit due to a defamation suit filed against her by ex-husband Johnny Depp. Heard's earnings over the years came from films, TV shows, and endorsements, but her finances have been severely dented by controversial legal battles, as per CelebrityNetWorth.

Heard's earnings have fluctuated over the years, and it was revealed during the trial that she earned approximately $10 million in total pre-tax income between 2013 and 2019. Most of her earnings were during the year 2019 when she made $3 million, receiving $1 million for her role in the first "Aquaman" movie, and $2 million for the sequel, which was contractually guaranteed to her. She also had the potential to earn more from the series if additional sequels were made.


Apart from films, Heard earned $200,000 per episode for her role in the TV series "The Stand," and signed a two-year contract with L'Oreal worth $1.62 million.
