At the age of 15, Valletta was enrolled in a modeling school which became her first step into the fashion industry. She became part of the Linda Layman Agency which featured other future supermodels including Kate Moss, Shalom Harlow and Carolyn Murphy. Her popularity soon started to grow and so did her net worth. She appeared 13 times on the cover of “American Vogue”, second only to Claudia Schiffer’s 16 covers. She also worked as the face of Gucci, Valentino, Prada, Chanel, and Giorgio Armani, eventually earning multi-million dollar cosmetic contracts with Elizabeth Arden and Calvin Klein which increased her net worth quickly. Even today, Amber continues to work as a fashion model, appearing in the Versace Autumn/Winter 2017 fashion show. She’s also a model for UK retail chain Marks and Spencer.

Valletta got her first film opportunity in 2000, and it then led to popular films such as “What Lies Beneath” and “The Family Man” which starred Nicolas Cage. Three years later, she became part of “Duplex” as Celine, and would then play the role of Martina in “Raising Helen”. She had her first major role in the romantic comedy “Hitch” which became a critical and financial success, and then in “Transporter 2” which starred Jason Statham. In 2007, she would be cast in “Premonition”, “My Sexiest Year”, and “Dead Silence”, all adding to her net worth, and two years later was in the action film “Gamer” alongside Gerard Butler, however, it gained negative reviews. In 2010, she then starred in “The Spy Next Door” playing the love interest of Jackie Chan’s character.

Amber also ventured into television work, being cast in the soap opera “Revenge”. In 2014, she was a regular cast member of “Legends”, and the following year, she starred in the series “Blood & Oil” which was short lived, but her net worth continued to rise.

For her personal life, it is known that Amber married volleyball player Chip McCaw in 2003, and they had a son but divorced in 2015. Aside from this, she has talked about battles with alcohol and drug addiction. She also does philanthropic work, serving as the spokesperson for Oceana’s Seafood Contamination Campaign, the goal being to bring awareness of the dangers of mercury poisoning. She also endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election last 2012.

Quotes

#Quote
1They looked at me and said, "Let's cut your hair off." We went back to my apartment in Paris and just cut it all off. Two guys cutting my hair at the same time.
2My mom was proud but very hands off. She didn't really know enough about the industry, and she didn't have the time to stop her life to go chaperone me... she was probably a little naïve.
3Women can be strong, be smart, be sexy, be mothers, be wives, and be powerful. We don't need to compromise.
