'Down to Earth': Amber Heard charms bookseller who says she's OPPOSITE of her media Image
'She seemed completely down to earth, intelligent and cool,' the Tel Aviv bookshop owner wrote on Facebook
Amber Heard recently visited Halper's Books in Tel Aviv and purchased a book that was written by the owner of the establishment. Heard appears to be trying to maintain a positive attitude while relaxing in Tel Aviv with her journalist friend Eve Barlow since the infamous Johnny Depp v Amber Heard defamation case verdict was made public weeks ago.
On Monday, August 1, Heard's visit to Tel Aviv made headlines when the actress was pictured eating at a café close to Dizengoff Street. The photo was originally posted on Yarden Mainfeld Dizengoff's Instagram page.
Heard stopped by the bookstore while sporting a floral red outfit, and she was captured flaunting her natural beauty while out and about in the city. The picture of the 'Aquaman' actress with her wavy hair loosely draped over her shoulder and a big smile was uploaded by the owner of the store on Facebook.

Halper's Books' owner wrote, "Say what you want about Amber Heard, (and what little I knew about her was negatively influenced by the media as well), the person who browsed my store last Tuesday for almost an hour, with her toddler baby girl and a couple of friends, was a modest, polite, friendly, inquisitive self-effacing customer with high literary tastes."
"In fact, I had no idea that it was her until she presented her credit card. She is also now the proud owner of my book "The Bibliomaniacs" and promised to send me feedback on it," the owner added. The post has received 2.7k reactions and 728 comments.
One individual commented, "THANK YOU And I hope you don't get abuse for sharing this. Your bookstore looks AWESOME," to which the owner responded, "I did not really follow the trial and didn't know who she was and rarely saw Depp's movies... and those I saw I didn't like. But the person I met and spoke with was a good person. She may have made her mistakes (biggest one marrying Depp) but she seemed completely down to earth, intelligent and cool."
One person thanked the owner for sharing the photo of Heard and wrote, "While delighted that she lost the trial, I feel really bad for her and it kinda comforts me to see her still enjoying life," while another added, "Thank you for posting. She is very beautiful. It is so sad all that she has gone through."
On June 1, a Virginia judge ordered Heard to pay $10.35 million to the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor for defaming him in a Washington Post op-ed. Heard was also given $2 million because the court found that Depp's former attorney, speaking for him, had slandered her by calling her out for her "abuse hoax."
In a statement following the verdict, the 'The Rum Diary' actress expressed regret and referred to it as "a setback." Heard wrote, "It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke up could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It sets back the idea that violence against women should be taken seriously. I'm sad I lost this case. But I am sadder still that I seem to have lostt a right I thought I had as an American - to speak freely and openly."
