  You May Have Forgotten About These Early Amber Heard Acting Roles

Amber Heard led the cast of NBC’s flashy drama “The Playboy Club” in 2011, which was essentially sold as “Mad Men” for network television. Her character, Maureen, is a new Playboy bunny, an alluring femme fatale who catches the eye of Eddie Cibrian’s character, Nick, when she is accidentally responsible for the death of a mobster. Heard told Collider that the period-specific costumes helped her get into character, explaining, “When I put [the Playboy bunny outfit] on for the first time, it took me back to this time that was this very, very specific moment in history when this existed. It’s something that feels naughty, yet nice. It feels edgy and cool and different, and it’s a lot of fun.”

The show was met with criticism from many sides, including legendary feminist Gloria Steinem, who urged people to skip it during an interview with Reuters (via The Hollywood Reporter). “I expect that ‘The Playboy Club’ will be a net minus and I hope people boycott it,” she said. “It’s just not telling the truth about the era. … It normalizes prostitution and male dominance.”

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the series was swiftly canceled. A couple years later, Heard told Bullit Magazine (via Express) that she resented how everything went down. “I became the show’s default, unintentional spokesperson, which I wasn’t capable of doing,” she recalled. “I wasn’t the show’s creator. I was stuck in front of the press and left to defend ‘The Playboy Club’ when, in fact, I can’t stand for the integrity of the show.”
