According to statistics from Hollywood CelebTattler, Amber Heard is the most searched name on Google this year in the US, surpassing more than 150 other notable celebrities.
The main reason for Amber Heard’s special interest to the audience may be the “fiery” battle between her and ex-husband Johnny Depp at the defamation trial – the lawsuit is considered Hollywood’s most controversial. According to statistics, the Aquaman star has an average of 5.6 million searches per month in the US.
Following closely behind Amber Heard, in second place is Johnny Depp with 5.5 million searches per month. In the US, at the time of the trial, this pair of actors were the most noticed celebrities. Even statistics from the media monitoring platform NewsWhip show that every article related to the lawsuit between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has 5 times higher interaction than other press information.

Of these names, rugby star Tom Brady is the most searched A-list athlete, ranking 4th on this list. Part of the reason why Tom Brady has been mentioned so much this year is due to his sudden divorce from supermodel Gisele Bundchen. His searches hovered at 4.06 million per month in 2022.
What’s surprising is that Taylor Swift and Harry Styles – artists with many achievements (and several dramas) this year – are not in the top 10 most searched celebrities in the US.
“This data provides an interesting and insightful insight into the effects of celebrity on the American public. Let’s wait and see if these search numbers will increase or decrease in 2023,” the representative said. CelebTattler’s representative said.
