Amber Heard is a queen both on and off screen. The 32-year-old actress, who plays Mera, Queen of Atlantis, in DC Comic's upcoming Aquaman movie, is set to make a splash in the solo superhero flick. But she was doing that on social media well before she signed on to the action film.

Heard told Entertainment Weekly that it was a no-brainer for her to sign on as Mera, saying she was instantly struck by the fact that "Mera has her own name" instead of just being known as 'Aquawoman.'"

"That resonated with me as somebody who's always been allergic to being the damsel, the two-dimensional archetype of what women are often limited to in this industry — especially in the superhero world. So when I spoke to [Justice League director Zack Snyder] he got me at 'warrior queen.' He said, 'You get a sword and a crown' and I'm like, 'Okay, you know how to play to your audience.'"

"It seems very unnatural at first," Heard told EW. "It's like trying to pretend you're under the ocean in an epic battle to save the world while attached to wires, sopping wet after being hosed down on a cold soundstage for 16 hours a day while holding a plank. It was a fantastic core workout."

Never one to boast about her body, Heard even joked to Glamour UK that her Aquaman co-star Jason Momoa "probably" has her beat when it comes to cleavage goals. But even before that intense Aquaman training, Amber Heard has always been body goals, as can be seen by some of the photos from her amazing Instagram feed below.

Last year, a bleach blonde Amber Heard hit the beach in a black bikini. It wouldn't be long before she'd go red to play Mera.
