Johnny Depp & Amber Heard took so long to go public to protect his ex?

Amber Heard

On Monday, we covered the story that Johnny Depp (49) and Amber Heard (27) finally put a public face on their long-rumored romance by holding hands at a Rolling Stones concert. So they’re an official couple now, and the Enquirer had just only predicted a few days beforehand that they would soon step out together because Amber was pressuring Johnny to go public with their relationship.

I still can’t believe either of them would go there. Johnny has always had relationship with iconic women whose public profiles matched his own, and now he’s with a run-of-the-mill blonde with big boobs and a pretty smile. As for Amber, I’d like to think she can do better than a sold-out rebel who accessorizes like nobody’s business but still looks like he hasn’t bathed in a few months and is wallowing in his own mid-life crisis. Yet here they are, and it seems that all of the gossip was true. Here are the details according to Star on why it took so long for Johnny to introduce Amber as his lady:

Johnny Depp Amber Heard

It’s true! Johnny Depp and Amber heard finally revealed that they’re dating, enjoying a very romantic and public night out on April 27 when the stunning couple canoodled in front of hundreds at the Rolling Stones concert at the Echoplex in Los Angeles. “Johnny was very protective of her; there were so many people there, and he kept as close to her as possible,” an eyewitness tells Star. “They whispered to each other a lot and laughed. He was obviously smitten, touching Amber affectionately and giving her soft kisses on her neck while they listened to the band. It was really sweet!”

In the summer of 2012, Johnny, 49, broke up with Vanessa Paradis after a 14-year relationship, while Amber, 27, recently split from female photographer Tasya Van Ree. “Johnny has been crazy about Amber for more than a year — but he was concerned about hurting his ex and his children, so he didn’t want any media attention,” explains a friend. “Amber, meanwhile, has been playing hard to get. She cozied up to other women, which made Johnny a wreck. Now they both seem open to taking the next step in their relationship as one of hte hottest couples in Hollywood.”

[From Star, print edition, May 13, 2013]

This week’s issue of In Touch adds more to the equation: “They are serious. They have been for a long time.” The timeline for this romance is incredibly sketchy, right? Amber and Johnny were done filming The Rum Diary long before summer 2012 when he and Vanessa broke things off. I don’t know whether or not Johnny and Vanessa were already on the rocks when Amber “captured his heart,” but it’s all a bit suspect to me. If this young blonde thing is the real reason that Johnny decided to pull the plug on his long-term relationship that spawned two children, then he’s a damn fool. Honestly, I have a bad feeling about this one. Johnny’s gonna get hurt. Amber’s going to do the dumping, and he’s going to get badly hurt. And we’ll all have a hard time not saying, “I told you so.”

Here’s Johnny on the set of his upcoming film, Transcendence, on Monday. He’s back to shorter hair again, and he probably also showered for the occasion, yay!

      Me neither. Never heard of her until now.

    • Sandy says:

      I think there’s a HUGE FACTOR most people are forgetting here that has NOTHING 2 do with Amber, Kate or any other woman JD’s been involved with. JD & V were NEVER MARRIED! After 14 years & 2 kids — he never married her & SHE CHOSE 2 stay & even bare his children – so she in “some” ways knew the risk w/a man who wouldn’t make a MARITIAL COMMITMENT 2 her even after 14 years!!! I’m NOT saying if JD was with ANY woman during his relationship with V it was right. They were still in a relationship I’m guessing was supposed 2 be exclusive. But never bothering 2 marry her after all that time & 2 children should have been a HUGE RED FLAG 2 her that he made sure he could split anytime 4 any reason…

    • Christine says:

      Johnny has just entered the loserville. It goes back to HS rule, your coolness depends on who you hang out with and who you hook up with.

      Was a Depp fan for years until it was confirmed that he’s dating this woman. It’s not about this woman but it’s their hooking up that’s really not likeable.

      • A says:

        First of all, it was Vanessa who never wanted to get married, even Johnny said so. He wanted to marry her but she didn’t want to.
        Second, 14 years + children is commitment whether you like to think so or not. Marriage doesn’t make your relationship anymore committed. Having children together is the BIGGEST commitment of ALL.
        Children binds you together forever.

  1. Sirsnarksalot says:

    Well this should move her career along nicely.

  2. I like them both separately, but not as a couple. He is too old for her…

    • Dubois says:

      Me too. Although Johhny’s accessorizing has turned me off him a bit. The age gap doesn’t bother me. She seems mature and grounded. She seems to know who she is. I agree that she will leave him and he will be a crying fool a la Demi Moore.

  3. clutch says:

    Depp and Vanessa were in trouble some time before last year. Blind items occassionally get it right. Also i think the tabloid claims that they were together only in name started before last year. The whole ‘blonde homewrecker’ storyline is too easy. And remember she wasnt the only one he was being linked to. Wasnt there an assistant or something he was snapped getting close with.

    No, i think he fell out of love with Vanessa. Started dating around (or maybe he had always cheated!). And because this guy is a serial monogamist settled on Amber but didnt want a Branjelina-type scandal. So he wants to hide her. She, rightfully, refuses to be an undercover lover, so she starts dating other people. Whether its an ultimatum or a ploy it works, johnny tells the world about her. And now here we are.

    • Tessa says:

      They filmed The Rum Diaries in like 2010. Supposedly, it started to fray the minute he met Amber. Gossip of course.

      • Chrisse says:

        It was 2009 when they filmed Rum Diary. Amber as gushing about new guy when she made Syrup in summer 2011 when JD was touchy feely with Vanessa on his yacht in the med trying to save his relationship. No matter how you cut it, Amber was the final nail in the coffin and she knew what she was doing.

      • clutch says:

        Chrisse

        What does “she knew what she was doing”, even mean?! If I had a dollar for everytime I have had to type this here, I would have atleast 17 dollars mean.

        Blaming the other woman is just daft. It implies that women have some irrestible super power that they can cunningly trigger to “confuse” innocent male targets. Its a story as old as scheming Eve tricking innocent Adam into eating the apple. And its sexist as hell.

        The ONLY person responsible for a relationship is the person in it. And he was clearly unhappy with Vanessa. “Evil seductress” aside he was done with VP. And when HE fell for Amber he knew what he was doing.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      We didn’t see Depp and Paradis together in the red carpet since 3 years before their break-up

    • Matte says:

      @Chrisse: Amber worked on Syrup between april and may 2012…yeah! right after they were photographed together at Las Vegas airport.
      And it seems too obvious – for that moment- Vanessa and Johnny were OVER (remember the cover in People Mag about their split? it was on january)

    • lola says:

      @ clutch. Is he a monogamist? There are plenty of rumors of him cheating. There are also many rumors of his drinking getting on vanessas nerves. I think you are making it less complicated then it is. Also kind of creepy that he is dating someone young enough to be his daughter. this dirty old man move is far from the cool depp of old times.

      • clutch says:

        Lola, he could be a player, i dunno. All I meant by “serial monogamist” is that he likes to have a main squeeze. He may still cheat on them, and given what we know about hollywood, he probably does cheat.

        I wasnt trying to simplify it. Infact i thought i was throwing a spanner in the works, lol. I was saying, same as you, that Johnny and Vanessa had serious drama before Amber. And that Johnny is no angel. And that the knee jack reaction at Amber is sexist.

      • anon33 says:

        I really wish people would stop saying that calling a woman out for doing shady sh8t is sexist. I am a woman, I am a feminist, and I think this kind of behavior is both reprehensible and ridiculous.

        Yes, Johnny and Vanessa are responsible for their relationship, and no, Amber is not to blame for the ultimate demise of their relationship. And no, she should not be called a “slut” for this. That is not what I am saying. Johnny obviously bears most of the brunt of the responsibility in this situation.

        However, she absolutely is to blame for HER ACTION of initiating a relationship with someone who was married/in a relationship. You can try to logic your way out of it forever but the fact remains that that is shady business, and she engaged in it. It is no way sexist for someone to note this-it’s a fact. Now, whether you find cheating to be shady is another argument entirely, and one which I won’t address here.

        A true woman would have said to Johnny “hey look, I like you, I’m not denying it, but you have to get your situation taken care of before I even CONSIDER this.” And then she should have walked away and let him sort his sh8t out.

        And please do not give me any BULLSHIT about “they fell in love and couldn’t help it.” I’m sick of that argument too-it’s Leann Rimes’ favorite. Lots of people become attracted to other people while they are in a serious relationship-and I am one of them-but guess what? That doesn’t mean you have to act on it and seriously hurt the other person in the relationship.

        I’m sorry, but they’re adults. If they are so incapable of controlling themselves and acting appropriately then perhaps they should go back to kindergarten and re-learn how to act right.

        Anon, how do you know Depp hadnt ended the relationship with vanessa yet? The blinds of that period said that they were done but keeping the image going for the industry/kids. And trying to agree on assets. Even if they werent done just fighting, how do you know what Depp was telling Amber. How do you know he wasnt telling her that the very rare times he was with Vanessa, it was the publicists idea and they were separated in any real sense (which was likely the case).

        Even if Amber was aware that he was hooked up, it still falls on him. ALL of it. Women are not obliged to be the guardians of morality. She owes no due dilligence whatsoever. Now I personally dont like to share so I dont date married people. Maybe she has no qualms with it. Its for Vanessa and Depp to gatekeep their relationship if sharing offends either of them. And I hasten to add the relationship was hanging on by a thread … of the hem of Johnny Depps publicists frayed skirt.

  4. Rikki says:

    If he cared about his ex, he wouldn’t have cheated on her with Amber.

  5. dee says:

    I think Johnny Depp looks like a male version of Tasya Van Ree.

  6. Gee says:

    Never going to get behind them as a couple. They’re a cringe-worthy cliché: Typical ‘hot’ much younger blonde girl on the arm of an older man with more power and moola.

    Where’d all the rebel love go Johnny? I miss the 90′s..

  7. Jess says:

    I think Johnny and Vanessa were separated a long time back. I’d been hearing gossip about that for a year or so before Johnny even did The Rum Diary. They certainly hadn’t properly lived together for a few years and it seemed like they were both fine with that.

    Amber’s seems kinda interesting. Not a great actress, but her interviews are a decent read. Johnny’s previous girlfriends may have been iconic, but it’s not like he was dating Meryl Streep. Vanessa Paradis doesn’t have much talent to speak of either, Kate’s pretty dumb and I have a soft spot for Winona, but she’s like a broken baby bird, so I’m not sure we should want a fifty year old guy to keep going after that particular type. Amber seems like an improvement actually. She might be younger but she seems tough, whereas his past GF’s have always seemed painfully vulnerable. I’d kind of assumed ‘desperately in need of a good meal/could do with a short stint in a mental health facility’ was his one and only kind of woman.

    • fabgrrl says:

      “broken baby bird” – totally Winona! Thank you.

    • Polina says:

      Johnny and Vanessa were captured on their yacht in September 2011 and thay not seem separated. Vanessa waved her ring in the end of 2011 during the promo tour of TRD.

      • Jess says:

        Sure, they were keeping up appearances, raising their kids together, probably trying to keep it together, but something had changed. They were inseparable for most of their relationship and always kept the whole family together when one of them was working, then suddenly they were spending months and months apart and just ferrying the kids back and forth.

        Vanessa can and has recorded her music with Johnny while on location and Johnny has pulled out of/moved major commitments around in the past so he could stay with her in France while she worked. But they had been totally doing their own things for a couple of years before they separated. Something changed in mid-late 09.

      • KS says:

        TDR was filmed in early summer 2009. I guess that’s what happened.

      • kat says:

        @KS and @ Jess: What are you trying to say? That Johnny has been in love with Amber since 2009?
        That could explain why Johnny was falling apart at least, since 2009/2010

      • KS says:

        I think she made quite an impression on him while filming TRD and maybe Johnny and Vanessa were in trouble already. Did anything happen until the promo tour? I sure don’t know. Johnny and Vanessa probably lived a life together apart to keep the family image for the kids. Johnny ,i believe, is someone who needs the feeling to be loved and taken care of. By the time the promo for TRD came he must have been boozing a lot, he was miserable with the situation,lonely and pretty Amber was there and ready to deliver.(Remember how she was gushing about him?)
        When Johnny and Vanessa met he was a well known actor but nothing compared to the status he has now. It must be difficult for him to even go to places and simply meet new people. What bothers me are Amber’s statements like “I want to be as powerful as Angelina Jolie.” or “I would do anything for my career.” I think she can play him like a fiddle and he is trying to keep her happy since he seems to be a person who is afraid to be on his own. Of course, these are only my thoughts and it’s pure speculation.

    • lamamu says:

      +1 Great analysis. Also, Amber Heard doesn’t fit the Hollywood big titted blonde stereotype at all.

    • binturong says:

      I think Jess has it right. Vanessa was kind of a dumb bunny who slept w/famous men as well. I think maybe we’re underestimating Johnny–maybe he’s improving, and growing up. I hope so, anyway. If Amber can pry him away from the scarves she should get the Nobel Prize.

    • lola says:

      Improvement? She colored her dog pink she seeems like a typical vacant blonde run of the mill hollywood actress who cant act

  8. mercy says:

    It just makes him look weak. Relationships end, but taking up with someone 20+ years younger right after screams mid-life crisis.

  9. DianeP says:

    Oh, Johnny. Vanessa Paradis, Kate Moss, Winona Ryder…can’t see this working.

  10. Talie says:

    She’s drop dead… end of story.

  11. Eleonor says:

    We can’t know what happened between him and Vanessa, but I am pretty sure of one thing: Vanessa had to put up with a lot of mess from his part.
    If their relationship was over, now Johnny is another 40something with a much younger blonde at his arm. Such a cliché.

  12. Annie says:

    I remember a tabloid publishing a story on them as soon as filming started, in like late 2010? That is quite a while guys. I remember it quite well because it was on the cover with some douchey headline like “Johnny enticed with his young, hot, bisexual co-star”. It said Johnny was mesmerized and could not stay away from her and it looked like trouble. He was still with Vanessa. At the time I thought it was just shit stirring. But sometimes tabloids are not making things up!

    Johnny is only protecting his brand. The Pirates franchise is Disney, family friendly. He can’t compromise his likability.

    He’s always preferred younger women. It was only a matter of time. How soon he forgot when he said the only real thing in his life is the love he had with Vanessa and the family they were raising together. Everything else, including his fortune and stardom, “was just smoke.” Until a 25 year old blonde showed up! What a cliche.

    Men can be such idiots.

  13. Adrien says:

    Amber is the blonde, smiley version of Kristen Stewart.

  14. Prim says:

    The inevitable heartbreak might do him some good. Nothing like a slap in the face from love to open up all your old wounds so badly that you have to finally face them.

  15. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    You know, Bed Head and Kaiser’s predictions have been true a lot of times. I was reading Rob Pattinson’s at archives here, I remember a post written by Kaiser and Bed Head dated 2009, where both of them had written KStew would be the one who would cheat and break Rob’s heart, at that time Rob was being called a player. Look! Their words did came TRUE!
    Now they say Amber would dump Johnny, I’m damn sure it is gonna be true.

  16. Boodiba says:

    It never ceases to amaze me that when men date “above” their level – on the physical attractiveness and youth scale – they are then surprised later to fine that 1) they were being used for money and power and 2) the woman was only tolerating him all along.

  17. ladybert62 says:

    Aint no fool like an old fool – that means you Mr. Depp!

  18. Saema says:

    Well, she is beautiful and quite stunning I have to say!

  19. Gossip Garl says:

    Vanessa HANG ON, Karma is JUST around the corner…Time is on ur sight, YES IT IS!!

  20. LoL says:

    Is he wearing a toupee or did he get hair plugs ? Pretty sure his midlife crisis has something to do with the fact that he is balding.

  21. Thora says:

    You can’t recapture your youth by shagging it, Johnny. You’re still 49 no matter how young your partner is.

  22. Loulou says:

    Vanessa isn’t that insecure. He probably was trying to protect his kids.

  23. Lolitalola says:

    “Johnny has been crazy about Amber for more than a year — but he was concerned about hurting his ex and his children, so he didn’t want any media attention,”

    I wished I had never read such a lame comment.

  24. Green Is Good says:

    Johnny, quit thinking with you d*ck.

  25. Jei says:

    Johnny quit the alcohol for over a year. It’s said it has everything to do with her. That it was because Amber asked him to do so. With this only fact, she has my most sincerely approbation and best wishes…not even Vanessa achieved that task!

    Also, anybody who see the new pictures of Johnny working this week, can say he looks AMAZING! better than in years. I have the idea that this girl is good for him!

    • binturong says:

      I really hope so. How do you know that?

      • Jei says:

        It was reported even in media around february 2012, that he stopped drinking alcohol and it was said that it was because the influence of the native people, or trying to reconcile with Vanessa, etc, etc.
        But in fact, Vanessa and Johnny had broken up in that moment. Lone Ranger just start the shoot in the first days of march, etc. And he remained “clean” until now (or that’s what report MSN, at least)

        All his fans have been seen pictures of Johnny constantly with his non-alcoholic beer. and several times when it was reported about his dates with Amber, it was remarked that both only had non-alcoholic drinks (when they were at AV nightclub; some report from a bar in Colorado, etc) And until the recent concert of Rolling Stones, where according to MSN somebody asked him about this, and he said he is totally sober and that he feels great since then.

        And in that report, according to “insiders” (some of his friends) it was said that the main reason it was because Amber asked him to do so…
        And it makes sense to me, because it’s clear that around january/february (when he stopped drinking) his relationship with Amber was starting (there are pictures of Amber wearing his clothes since january or valentine’s day, etc, etc)

    • KS says:

      Johnny once said that he had no trouble to quit drinking and drugs to be together with Vanessa. Of course that was at the biginning of their relationship and it looks like that magic disappeared after a while.
      For Johnny’s new look: he changed it for filming his new movie. Amber obviously had no trouble with him looking like a Hobo for a year or even longer.

      • Jei says:

        He didn’t stop drinking alcohol when he was with Vanessa. She is french remember? all the rumors about their vineyard, and all those comments about how he liked just sit down in his couch with his “girl”, drinking a bottle of wine and watching his children to play

        Now he quit -quit the alcohol! he doesn’t drink alcohol at all. and all his fans knows this.

      • annie says:

        @jei kind of strange thing to claim as its not like amber heard is tee total. You are telling me couldnt quit drinking for his kids but he could for this girl. Then he is more pathetic than we all thought

      • Jei says:

        @Annie: Probably his kids never asked him to do so. They are too young and it was said (at the time of the split) that he never was around his kids when he was depressed or drunk. But it’s said that Vanessa was furious constantly with his escalated of drinking at the end of their relationship. And it was huge source of friction between them, and she wanted that Johnny to stop the alcohol but he didn’t do it for her…maybe he wanted to be “doped” around her

  26. KD says:

    His MO seems to be to suck the life out of the woman he’s with and then move on to the next victim. And every time he moves on to someone new you hear the same story of how this is the one and she’s saved him and changed him in so many ways. Except at this point he should be living for his children and not some youngin’ that could be his daughter.
    I don’t think he gives a crap about VP and her feelings, he wants to preserve his image and keep those Disney checks coming in. That US weekly hit piece from last year proved that point.
    Hopefully Vanessa is somewhere gettin’ her back blown out by some hot Frenchman.

  27. onegirlup says:

    Since I don’t personally know JD I can only speak as a (shallow as it may be) former swooner from my theater seat or if we’re talkin’ TV roles then from my living room. And I think he did something to his face or eyes? He may look a little bit better lately with the cleaned up look but for me, he was once so amazingly hot and now he’s barely do-able. And that would honestly only be for nostalgic reasons. I’d take CUMBY over JD ANYDAY OF THE WEEK!!! giddy up.

  28. Helvetica says:

    These two probably had an affair on Rum Diary and have been keeping their relationship low key all this time.

    I would definitely say it their involvement was the precursor to the end of his relationship with Vanessa.

    Oh, Johnny. You disappoint me. I never thought you would have, either.

    I think he probably didn’t want to cause more harm to Vanessa by keeping this undercover bu there is no way to minimizing the pain this kind of situation.

  29. Maggie says:

    She’s gorgeous! Of course he would fall for her.

  30. Terry says:

    Vanessa moved on well before the official break up and both are happy for each other. But tabloids in the US never paid much attention to her.

  31. jasmine says:

    it all started with the Tourist. V lost her cool in regards to AJ and i think JD didn’t like it one bit. it all went downhill after that…

    • Tasha says:

      It didn’t start with the Tourist. In 2009 Amber and Johnny filmed Rum Diary and Depp and Paradis were not see together on the red carpet, 3 years before their break-up which was 2012 subtract 3 years you get 2009.

      Vanessa didn’t have a problem with AJ. Their are pictuers of AJ and kids at Vanessa house. Thier was one time when AJ was at Vanessa house when Johnny was out of town.

      The whole Vanessa and AJ thing was media BS.

  32. jane16 says:

    Amber is one of those women who are much prettier in real life than when photographed. But I’ve heard from many people who have worked with her that she’s as strange as she could possibly be. They make an odd couple.

  33. Val5 says:

    JD is just pathetic with his way too young throphy new gf! men are always all the same, boring;
    Go Vanessa! You deserves better than this jerk, wish you the best! :-)

  34. Miss M says:

    “She cozied up to other women, which made Johnny a wreck.” She did because she is a lesbian, who (allegedly) backpedaled saying she is bisexual.

    The only time I heard about her was on tmz. The gay guy there has a huge crush on her. Back then, I thought she was the blonde version of AJ, but without talent.

  35. Jade says:

    lol well if its true its a step up from gap women old whats her face? don’t like her. least he isn’t looking like a bum in these pics

  36. Makrciana says:

    I think this is the first time that we won’t hear those stories about how he fell in love at first sight (the stories between Winona, Kate, Vanessa are all rather similar) because this is the only story that developed since the most basic until it became on what we see now:

    They were boss and employee (when he hired her); mentor and learner (Amber said Johnny worked with her to prepare her role); colleagues (when they were working in the movie); friends (all the next years, when they continue in touch, she was at his premieres, etc); lovers (we’ll never know if they were “in love” at that time, or they were just involved in the heat of two sensual people: the married but lonely most of the time and she who hadn’t been with a man in 4 years); and now as a real couple!

    Maybe this is “the one”, Johnny? at least she is the only which he took the time to really know, to learn about her interests, to develop a friendship, and work to win her love, before to say he is in love with her…

    I want to see the next phase. they only could be “exes” in the future? or they can go to be parents, or even married people? who knows? but I wish them the best!

    Its hard to know the truth when johnny doesn’t like to explain things to the press. Especially his personal life. Amber is young, verry young and attractive, johnny will be 50 this year, c’mon, we all know this will not be a long lasting relationship. When he was this age, he was dating on and off. I never imagined johnny doing something like this. I’m shocked….

    This is a little picky, but she appears to have small boobs?

    French newspapers say Vanessa and Johnny probably split in late 2010 but didn’t talk about it because they wanted things to go smoothly for the kids. I tend to believe it. I am sad though, because they made a cute couple and I like them both very much,

    Her youth emphasizes how OLD he is.

    He looks so pathetic. Chasing 20 years old when he is almost 50.

    He should be dating women much older. He comes across so shallow and pathetic.

    The difference is life experience and the place they are in life is so huge, that he must be a bit empty on the inside to want such sort of relationship.

    I never thought he is like these old men who “date” young gold-digger or fame-diggers.

    How disappointing.

    She’s gorgeous and he used to be one of the best. Now, with his mid-life crisis in full force, he’s kinda sad.

    I had to laugh at so many of the comments. When Johnny was filming TT so many posters were praising his and Vanessa’s relationship. How they were able to keep their family out of the spotlight. Then is was learned that Johnny’s family was not even with him in Italy. And now the comments are they split in 2010. So what exactly is it. Obviously something was going on with Johnny and Amber. They at the least were attracted to each other during or after filming. And then they got together. But now some of the people here are glossing over their attacks of AJ and trying to paint her as a cause of the break up. AJ whose family and partner were with her the entire shoot. Johnny was reported to be out late parting because his family was elsewhere.

    I will be honest and say that I like Johnny but have never really followed him. I learned a lot from his fans. So Johnny s chasing young tail. Well he is no different then say a Leo or George or Bradley or other male celebs.

    I admire the men that are family men and spend their free time with their families. Who knows how long this will last. But he is a grown man and doesn’t have to answer to we strangers regarding his life choices. I just think people should stop believing ever nasty rumor. Because when the reality comes out it shows how dumb the lies actually were.

    Probably just another phony Hollywood relationship designed to create buzz for everybody’s projects: Amber (Syrup), Depp (Lone Ranger), Paradis (CD), even Winona (Iceman). If it’s real, I agree Amber will eventually tear out Johnny’s heart & stomp that sucker flat, but that they didn’t hook up until the press tour in late 2011, when he was already separated from Vanessa. On the other hand, Depp was pictured holding hands with Patti Smith while filming the Rum Diary, not Amber. And prior to that, he seemed to be smitten with Marion Cotillard from Public Enemies. It was after that film, when Cotillard returned to her bf in France, that Depp’s drinking escalated & he stopped caring for his appearance/himself. He & Cotillard would make a lovely couple. And she arrived in LA to start a new film at the time of the Depp/Heard PDA.

    Oh you guys have to check out this blog – it’s showing exactly what Amber Heard has done in order to “nab” Johnny Depp. It’s actually creepy on her end. Two or three posts down on the blog you’ll find a lot of information. I can’t say it doesn’t sound a little suspicious on Amber’s part.
