Amber: Drive Angry one for the boys

Amber Heard has admitted that, with fast cars, guns and her in tiny shorts, her new movie, Drive Angry 3D, may appeal more to a male audience.

The 24-year-old blonde beauty stars as the fast-driving heroine alongside Nicolas Cage in the gory action flick.

Amber said: "Yes it will appeal to the guys I imagine. It also has me in Daisy Dukes which maybe helps pull that audience in."

But she added: "I would go see it, if I weren't in it, because it has a lead female hero who is no victim, no damsel, she is no one's romantic lead. She is truly a character unto her own and doesn't need the support of other characters.

"She's a bad a*s, Daisy Duke-wearing, Charger-driving, punch-throwing bat-out-of-hell - she's a strong woman.

"And I think for a woman to go into a theatre to watch a woman lead a movie like that, I think that's important. I think women will definitely get a kick out of this movie too."

Amber plays diner waitress Piper who helps Nicolas Cage's character in his battle to chase a devil worshipper and save his baby granddaughter.

The Texan actress - who came out at the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation 25th anniversary dinner in December when she attended with her girlfriend, photographer Tasya van Ree - also stars opposite Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary later this year.
