Elon Musk might be the thirstiest person on this planet. Not content with our wonderful home here, he wants to colonize Mars. Unhappy with the plethora of energy options readily available, he wants to harness the power of the Sun. Dismayed by our glorious interstate highway system, he wants to build Hyperloop.
And not happy (I’m guessing) with whoever he was fucking a few years back, he wanted to get with Amber Heard. While she was still dating Johnny Depp.
It’s like, dude, Elon, not everything is there for your taking.
The Hollywood Reporter obtained emails of Musk, which he sent to the director of a movie Heard was in, trying to arrange a meeting.
[The] Tesla founder nearly met Johnny Depp’s now-former wife while doing a cameo in Robert Rodriguez’s 2013 film Machete Kills, in which Heard had a role (as Miss San Antonio). Musk, 45, didn’t have a scene with Heard, 30, but apparently became infatuated anyway, according to a source close to the set, and began sending emails to Rodriguez and others — some made available to THR through a confidential source — asking him to set up a rendezvous.
Were they thirsty? Oh, they were thirsty.
“If there is a party or event with Amber, I’d be interested in meeting her just out of curiosity,” Musk wrote. “Allegedly, she is a fan of George Orwell and Ayn Rand … most unusual.” Rodriguez and team did indeed set up a dinner, but Heard — who was dating Depp at the time — didn’t show, leading Musk to try again. “Can you send her a note saying I would like to get together for lunch in LA?” he emailed the Rodriguez team again. “Am not angling for a date. I know she’s in a long-term relationship, but … Amber just seems like an interesting person to meet.”
Come on. Come on. Every Bro’s used some approximation of that desperate play. No, no, no. I don’t want to date her. Not at all. I just, like, wanna meet her, you know. She seems so cool.
Although I guess it worked because, according to TMZ, they’ve been hanging out ever since Heard’s divorce.
