Amber Heard is using her platform for good.

The Justice League star covers the December issue of Allure, where she candidly addresses why she was compelled to speak out about domestic violence.

“I don’t have to; I have to. If I didn’t have a platform, I would stand on my toes," the 31-year-old actress explains. "I have a semifunctioning brain and a semifunctioning limbic system, and as a human being, it is incumbent on me to make the world a better place in any small, insignificant way I can. I’ve always tried to do the right thing. I used everything I was given. I had to make it better for the next person.”

How gun laws let domestic violence offenders slip through the cracks

  How gun laws let domestic violence offenders slip through the cracks Many mass shooters share a disturbing commonality: domestic abuse. It can be seen in the case of Kevin Jansen Neal, who went on a shooting rampage in California this week. He killed four people and injured several more before he was fatally shot by police. Authorities later found the body of a fifth victim, his wife, at the couple’s home. Like many other suspects behind recent mass shootings, Neal had a history of domestic abuse and harassment. After being charged with stabbing a woman and placed under a restraining order earlier this year, Neal had been barred from possessing guns. He also had been charged with the illegal possession and firing of a weapon.

Ultimately, the two settled their divorce, and the restraining order was dropped, with the couple saying in a joint statement, "Neither party has made false accusations for financial gains. There was never an intent of physical or emotional harm."
