The actress also adds that she is happy that her and Adele are seen as “role models” and are challenging the “standard image” of female celebrities. And in a world where so many young starlets are setting a poor example for their young fans, Amber says she completely enjoys being a role model. She says, “I chose to be a role model. I get a lot of letters from young girls and they need somebody who looks like them, someone who isn’t what you’d expect in Hollywood. I’m very different to that standard image and I think they can relate to that.”
