Amber Heard takes daughter Oonagh Paige for stroll as they settle in new home after quitting Hollywood
MADRID, SPAIN: Amber Heard was recently photographed taking a stroll around Madrid with her little daughter and a friend, as she settles in her new Spanish house. The 37-year-old actress was seen walking about a downtown street late last week, conversing with a pal and apparently making a phone conversation.
She also came along with an apparent carer, who drives her two-year-old daughter Oonagh Paige, who she had via surrogacy in 2021, in a sitting scooter. Amber has retreated from the United States and the pace and bustle of Hollywood, according to DailyMail, following her ex-husband Johnny Depp's mostly successful defamation lawsuit against her in Virginia last year.

She has now set up camp with her daughter in a home just outside Madrid. However, it is unknown whether she will seek to return to Hollywood and resume her acting career.
On a casual stroll, dressed casually
Amber was dressed simply for her outing, wearing a basic white top without a bra. She paired it with a textured black midi skirt and thick-heeled black open-toe shoes. She appeared to be wearing minimal makeup and wore her blond hair in a loose bun.
In addition to a black handbag, she carried her phone on a strap around her torso, holding it up as if making a call while walking with her friends. Adorable Oonagh looked charming in a white shirt with multi-colored horizontal stripes and blue dungarees that had begun to slip down around her arms.

Amber was also seen conversing with a friend in a black tank top and a brown plaid skirt with black combat boots, while another woman in a black top and dark trousers appeared to be watching Oonagh and pushing her stroller.
Amber’s in no hurry to return to Hollywood
Despite her international relocation, Amber seemed to be enjoying the slower pace in Spain's city. "She's fluent in Spanish and is happy there, raising her daughter away from all the noise," a friend of the actress told DailyMail. She doesn't appear to have fully abandoned acting, but she also doesn't appear to be eager to return to the set. "I don't think she's in any hurry to return to work or to Hollywood, but she'll most likely return when the time is right for the right project," the friend added.

Her stay may be extended, as she sold her property in Yucca Valley, California, in July 2022 for a tidy profit. The upcoming superhero feature 'Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom', which will be released in December of this year, was one of Amber's two shot but unreleased films. For months, it was unclear whether Amber would return for the film or if she would be dropped due to the scandal surrounding her court fights with her ex, Johnny Depp.
The dramatic Depp-Heard trial
In the United Kingdom, she appeared to be vindicated after Depp lost a defamation action against The Sun for exposing her charges of domestic abuse. The judge presiding over the case decided that Depp assaulted Heard in the bulk of the incidents detailed in the publication. However, she experienced a surprising reversal of fortune when she penned an op-ed in the Washington Post addressing her history as a victim of domestic abuse, which did not identify Depp but was widely perceived as being about her ex-husband.
Depp sued her directly for defamation this time, and the case was determined by an unrestricted jury rather than a judge. The jury ruled that Heard's words in the op-ed were defamatory, but also surprisingly ruled that Depp's lawyer had defamed Heard too.
She was sentenced to pay her ex-husband $10.35 million, while he was ordered to pay her $2 million for his attorney's defamatory statement. After Heard was unable to pay the initial judgment, they reached an agreement in which her insurer would pay Depp only $1 million. Despite the fact that both were effectively vindicated in separate trials, Amber has been seemingly banished from Hollywood, whereas Depp is on the comeback trail.
