Amber Heard opens up about her engagement to Johnny Depp and life in the public eye in a new interview.

The 28-year-old actress appears on the cover of W magazine's June/July Issue, which is currently on newsstands, and also talks about her upbringing. Depp confirmed his engagement to the actress in March.

"I haven't noticed any change in my career," Heard said about her engagement "And, for better or worse, I've always had a love life that seemed particularly salacious to some people. Before, it was also seen as unconventional."

Heard, who has been open about dating women as well as men in the past, previously dated Tasya van Ree, a photographer, for nearly four years prior to her involvement with Depp. Heard and Depp met on the set of the 2011 film "The Rum Diary."

The actress joked in the interview that while she might seem refined, she has a little bit of an edge.

"Whenever my old friends meet someone I'm involved with romantically, they immediately warn them: 'She may look refined, but when she's angry, she can go trailer park really fast,'" Heard said. "But I'd always rather be passionate than bland. I can't imagine living a quiet life."

Heard, who co-stars with Kevin Costner in the upcoming film "3 Days to Kill," also talked about her upbringing in Texas and her close relationship with her father.

"He taught me a lot about animals, about cars, and about resilience," she said. "That's what happens when your father doesn't have a son. I drew the line at learning about football. I had to rebel somehow."
