Billionaire inventor Elon Musk has been vying for a date with Amber Heard for four years.
The newly single actress has been spotted on the town with Elon recently, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, ever since the Tesla founder nearly met Amber while doing a cameo in Robert Rodriguez's 2013 film Machete Kills, in which Heard had a role, he “became infatuated.”
Elon, 45, didn't have a scene with Amber, 30, began sending emails to the director asking to set up a “meeting.” (THR has the emails)
“If there is a party or event with Amber, I'd be interested in meeting her just out of curiosity,” Elon wrote. "Allegedly, she is a fan of George Orwell and Ayn Rand … most unusual." A dinner was scheduled, but Amber, who was dating Johnny Depp at the time, didn't show up—but that didn’t deter Elon.
“Can you send her a note saying I would like to get together for lunch in LA?" he emailed 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.”
A source close to Musk tells THR that although the two are now hanging out, “As for now, they are just friends.”
