Heard, who recently appeared in 'Zombieland' and also starred in the comedy 'Pineapple Express' announced that she has been with her photographer girlfriend for two years and told website AfterEllen.com, "I'm acutely aware of the role that the media plays in influencing public opinion and influencing society, and with that awareness comes the burden of responsibility". The 24-year-old added she felt as though she could no longer hide her sexuality, adding, "I think that the injustice of people staying in the closet is more than I can bear with a clear conscience and I couldn't sleep at night if I was a part of that problem".
