Amber Heard has been rumored, amongst a number of other sultry actresses, to be in consideration for the part of Anastasia Steele in the upcoming film rendition of E.L. James’ novel series “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Her boyfriend, however, who just so happens to be Johnny Depp, has apparently been trying to talk her out of it.

Celebitchy reports that Depp feels that the movie is going to be "too smutty" for Heard’s liking, though, this could just be jealousy talking. Anastasia Steele would surely have a number of steamy scenes with whomever the casting crew chooses to play the role of Christian Grey.

Apparently, notes Gather, Heard didn’t put up much of an argument with Depp, as she has been “looking to become more of an action standout anyway.”

We’ll see if Heard ends up denying the role. “Fifty Shades of Grey” will be released in August of 2014.
