Amber Heard is sad Johnny Depp hasn’t made her into ‘the next Angelina Jolie’

Johnny Depp Amber Heard

Last month when Johnny Depp toured Japan to promote The Lone Ranger, I knew something was weird about these photos of Johnny and his kids. Amber Heard is present as well, and she looks utterly disinterested, doesn’t she? Possibly irritated as well. That could have also been because the paps were snapping pictures.

Still, this makes me wonder whether or not Amber is disillusioned with her position as girlfriend of a top-of-the-A-list actor. Just as with Katie Holmes, a young actress should never hook up with a decades-older boyfriend in the hopes that he will boost her career. That’s just not how it works. In fact, show me an example of success with this tactic. Not even in the case of Tom Cruise, one of the (admittedly) most powerful movie stars in the entire world, has this ever happened. The poor girl ends up doing the walk of broken dreams. Even with Johnny’s latest box-office slipups, he is still just as famous and influential in Hollywood as ever. Yet he can’t make his girlfriend into something that she isn’t, and since Amber talks about how she’s such an artist, it’s pretty sad if she got with Johnny while secretly hoping that he’d boost her profile. Of course, Ambers profile has been boosted, but probably not in the way that she wanted.

In that regard, a new story in this week’s Enquirer sounds believable on many fronts, but it’s particularly interesting because Amber just told Elle that she fancies herself an action star. If this tale is correct, then Amber and Johnny fought in Japan because she is bored as sh-t being the byproduct of a midlife crisis and is hanging onto the hope that Johnny’s promises will come true:

Johnny Depp Amber Heard

Johnny Depp’s romance with bisexual beauty Amber Heard is already on the rocks! Sources say Amber, 27, resents the 50-year-old actor’s controlling nature, and she’s finding life with the Lone Ranger star to be boring.

Depp is so desperate to keep her, a source says he’s even given the switch-hitting sexpot a green light to hook up with women. “Johnny accepts the fact that Amber has other needs, so he’s told her it’s OK for her to be with women when she has the urge,” an insider told the Enquirer. But Johnny and Amber are in a bad place right now.

“When they first started dating, he promised to help her become the next Angellina Jolie, but Johnny simply hasn’t followed through. Instead of finding exciting projects for Amber, or introducing her to TinselTown movers and shakers, he seems to block her from moving forward in her career.

“Apparently, she was offered the lead in the film version of the raunchy book 50 Shades of Grey,” but Johnny told her to say no to it because it would be too smutty.”

The two met while co-starring in the 2009 film The Rum Diary and have been an item since Depp’s 14-year love affair with French singer Vanessa Paradis ended in June 2012. But Johnny has kept Amber cooped up in his Hollywood mansion, and she hates it, according to the source.

“It was cute for a while,” noted the source. “Amber liked cooking for Johnny and watching old movies with him. But now she’s bored out of her mind.”

The couple’s troubles came to a head while they were on a press jumped in Japan to promote The Lone Ranger, a box-office bomb that critics have mercilessly slammed. “The whole trip was a disaster, and Johnny and Amber got into a huge fight on the flight home,” said the source.

“She pointed out how much she’s given up to be with him and admitted that she misses her old life. Johnny’s been super stressed about the movie and just snapped, telling Amber that she was lucky to be dating him.”

But Depp soon changed his tune, said the source. “The promised Amber he’ll make things more exciting for her, and he’s still dangling the carrot of introducing her to agents and other key players,” added the source.

“Amber’s sticking around, hoping Johnny will be true to his word. But she’s not going to wait much longer.”

[From Enquirer, print edition, August 26, 2013]

If it’s true that Johnny is just a boring homebody now, that’s understandable because Johnny is no longer that guy who does coke benders all night long and throws furniture out the windows of hotel rooms. And that’s a good thing — no one can sustain that ridiculous behavior forever. Johnny seems like he’s just really mellow these days and would rather hang out at home while smoking the good stuff. At least he took Amber to a Rolling Stones concert, right? Yeah, that’s for old people too.

Seriously though, I don’t want to sound like I’m picking on Amber. For all we know, Johnny might be as controlling as this article describes. After all, he does rudely interrupt her interviews, and maybe the set trailer debacle was all his idea too. Maybe Johnny sweet-talked Amber like crazy just to land her — it happens to the best of us.

    Well of course not Amber, you’d have to have talent and relevance by yourself in order for that to happen.

  2. MollyB says:

    Charisma. You either have it or you don’t. No one can make that for you.

  3. Zoid says:

    Hmm. Well it sounds like its bad on both sides. If she only got with him for the career boost then she can hardly complain he’s not helping her. If he offered the help and is now rescinding it… Well, he’s rude but should recognize why she’s with him. I still want to believe they just like each other but it’s getting a bit harder with each interview she gives.

  4. Kiddo says:

    Bo Derek is the most famous and basically the only one. And most will ask, who is that?

    • Bijlee says:

      I’m not even sure if I understand what you just said. So I guess you’re right?

      Who’s bo derek?

      • Kiddo says:

        a young actress should never hook up with a decades-older boyfriend in the hopes that he will boost her career. That’s just not how it works. In fact, show me an example of success with this tactic.

        Bo Derek has occasionally spoken for the conservative party, in the last few years. When you look her up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bo_Derek, she was once an “actress” whose husband was the very definition of a svengali. But she never really became a huge star, I think, outside of being considered beautiful, and she hasn’t remained well known in the long run. I’m not saying Amber Heard is the same, I was answering the question posed by Bedhead.

      • Elle Kaye says:

        There is Roger Vadim and anyone he married…Brigitte Bardot,Catherine Deneuve, and Jane Fonda.

        Luc Besson and Milla Jovovich. Sure, they divorced, but it sealed her reputation as a C+ action star.

        René Angélil and Celine Dion. $$$$$

        There are more.

    • Jalene says:

      Do you mean Bo Derek benefitted from a relationship? If so, who was she with?

      Nicole was independently talented and unique looking. I do believe she would have made it on her own, I really do. But I also think being with Tom raised awareness of her. People learnt his name when she was with him. She delivered solid films after their split but public awareness came while with Tom.

      Could be the same with Amber. She can build her name with Johnny then build the credibility on her own.

      As for Katie, I think she suffered for being part of the Cruise Circus. Tom suffered too. She was on a good track just before though with sizeable roles in solid films like Thank You For Not Smoking or the Singing Detective. Its over now though.

  5. Leah says:

    He looks like a dad walking his 3 kids.

    • Liv says:

      God, I hope he comes to his senses. His midlife crisis ruins his career. I find him so bland and stupid without Paradis.

      He can be happy that his kids tolerate his new girlfriend, I would rip her apart if I was them.

      • Muse says:

        “His midlife crisis ruins his career. I find him so bland and stupid without Paradis.”

        Seriously I can’t help but roll my eyes at statements like these. Johnny Depp is bland without the Kate-Moss look-alike Vanessa Paradis that half of the world don’t know about. sure! Do you even realize that except for Depp-Paradis loons and a bunch of gossip bloggers no one even cared that he was with her?? And that includes a vast majority of Depp fans.

        And you probably didn’t read what Bedhead said about Depp’s still reigning career. He’s had hits and flops before and will continue to hereafterwards. He’s one of the ‘real’ superstars who’s world famous for his career. He’s not like Brangelina. His personal life is just that, personal and he’s actually famous for that. In other words most ppl don’t care about who he’s boinking. Get real

  6. Alexis says:

    I liked her better when she was a lesbian.

  7. TheOriginalKitten says:

    “Baby, I’m gonna make you a star!”
    *SNORT*

    This narrative may not even be true but it sure is fun to believe.

  8. Rida says:

    Gurl! There is only one Angelina Jolie and you are most definitely not her.

  9. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Oh Lordy Lord! I just can’t with her, even assuming that this isn’t true. I would love to see at least ONE example, where a younger actor/actress hooked up with an older, more established actor/actress and the younger person was amazing at their job and didn’t try to fameho (or otherwise) their relationship out.

    Maybe Gary Oldman and Uma Thurman? Was she known for her acting then? I believe she was 19 and he was 33ish when they got married. I wonder what happened….I guess it was because he was still hitting the bottle pretty hard.

    But seriously girl, quit talking and go to work….it should be even easier as you’ve got someone who will take care of you as you work.

    Oh and Lily-Rose (I love that name!) looks just like her mom!

    • Joanna says:

      I just lost all respect for Gary Oldman. What kind of man in his 30s marries a teen???? I mean how old was she when they started dating.

      God!! I need to stop reading about celebrities. Every week I discover a new beloved actor to hate. Brad Pitt with that Juliette Lewis predator shizzz, James Wood whos just gross to me now, Bradley Cooper (yuck), Leo (no words). I have lost enough fantasy lays.

    • fabgrrl says:

      Hm, maybe…..but Gary Oldman is so freakin’ awesome that I would have married him in a heartbeat, no matter what it meant for my career.

    • DSS says:

      If you travel way..way..wayyyy back think Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. She was a teen and he was a 2 or 3 times married 50 yr old. She was basically a model with one movie when she hooked him, but they had great chemistry together and were married for many years before his death.

      • Kelis says:

        And Lauren had a hellish marriage with Bogie. Her life consisted of dragging him away from his bottle. The studio PR worked very hard to cover for how fast that poor girl had to grow up. Boggie Becall fairy tale was manufactured. And even though she played along, there are some very revealing quotes from her. You cant pretend forever.

      • Nina W says:

        Bacall loves Bogart to this day. She loved him when she married him and she stuck with him through his illness and death from cancer. He was an alcoholic and not an easy man to live with but I believe their match was a love match on both sides. Bacall married for love not social climbing in Hollywood.

    • Denise says:

      I once read an interview where Gary Oldman was asked about his marriage to Uma Thurman and he said something like ‘How do you live with angel?’ I took that as him admitting it was all his fault. No doubt considering she was only 19. Uma was just amazing back then when no one really knew her, such an exquisite beauty.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I think she was 20 when they got married, then they divorced in under two years–something like that. I do think his drinking was the cause, which props to Uma being that young and knowing what she will and won’t deal with–because I’ve never heard anything about Gary other than that he’s the nicest man.

        I remember watching interviews when The Dark Knight Rises came out….whenever any of the cast have an interview with Gary, the interviewer would ask them what it was like working with such a legend. And Gary would roll his eyes, make a noise, and just wave that all away. But they did look good together, him and Uma (I love her name).

    • Agnetha says:

      Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise. He was a little bit older and more famous.

      Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas. Couldn’t tell you how famous either one was when they married, but they are still together.

      Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra.

    • LAK says:

      As someone mentioned above, Bo Derek. She was the hot girl for a minute in the late 70s. She’s a very successful dilitante (sp?) at best. Every interview she gives leaves the impression that her husband John Derek was more interested in turning her into a star/actress/model than she ever wanted to be. She probably would have remained happily undiscovered if he had never come into her life.

      On same note, John Derek had form. He had previously launched Ursula Andress and Linda Evans ( wives 2 & 3) onto an unsuspecting worldwide audience. They, however, wanted it as much as he did and had done some work prior to marrying him.

  10. kennedy says:

    Totally off topic- but HOW is her skin so perfect? I don’t believe it’s just makeup. She has amazing skin. Holy jeezus.

  11. bns says:

    I believe this even though it’s from the Enquirer LOL.

    She’s so desperate.

  12. Cora says:

    Goop didn’t start getting roles in major films until she became famous as Brad Pitt’s Girlfriend. No one knew who she was before then and her filmography was paper thin. She’s the only one I can think of who got that kind of boost from a romantic relationship, though. Of course Brad was a young, hot super stud at the time and not in middle aged crisis mode.

    • D says:

      Goop was only early 20-s when she dated Brad. 22 pehaps? So its not so weird that she wasnt a massive star. And i dont think she needed Brad, Steven Spielberg is her godfather and cast her in his first film that woman was always mad well connected.

    • Kelis says:

      Goop came from Hollywood royalty. She was always going to find work. Infact at the time they dated the tabloids ran a theory that Brad was using HER. Goop was quite gawky and people thought Brad was more attracted to Bruce Paltrows influence than Goop. Infact there was even a secondary rumor that Brad and Bruce were gay and getting it on (with or without Goops knowledge). That rumor started because Brad was sited around Bruce alot more than people expect from the guy dating your barely out of her teens daughter.

      Yes, yes. Blast from the past.

      • Morgan says:

        i wish more people would realize just how pr obsessed Brad is. He always goes after girls that could fit into package, but he can still outshine. He does it with Angie all the time, I know people love her here but his career is more high profile than hers because of his packaging of them

    • Nina W says:

      Being “Brad Pitt’s” girlfriend meant nothing when they dated. Brad Pitt was one of dozens of pretty boys in HW, just as no one anticipated that Johnny Depp would rise to the heights he has, no one expected Brad Pitt to last longer than a hot minute anywhere. We can re-write the story in hindsight but back in the day Brad and Gwyneth were just a cute hookup and no one cared about him one way or the other.

      • Muse says:

        You are right. It was same as Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder.
        However Brad is a fame-ho. His marriage with Jen Aniston was just a coup of sorts for publicity and enhancing his fan-base. And look how much he’s drawn out of it. Ppl always blame Jen or Angie but it’s Brad who’s always played the fame game. The women are just willing accompalices.
        It’s one reason why I like Depp a tad more than Pitt.

    • Leo says:

      Don’t forget GOOP was Harvey’s favorite actress by the 90s. Between 1994 – 2002, GOOP was the first option for many Miramax productions (Emma, Slinding Doors, Shakespeare). She and Jude Law were the young stars and faces from Miramax.

  13. MonicaQ says:

    “switch-hitting sexpot” made me frown and I don’t know why. Just sounds insulting.

  14. D says:

    She is 23 years younger than Depp. He is old enough to be her father I am surprised people arent commenting on the creepy aspect of this. As so many people called out Sam Taylor wood for getting with with a man 23 years younger. Is there a different standard for women?

    • Tapioca says:

      1. See previous posts. His sad midlife crisis has already been commented on plenty.

      2. Amber wasn’t 17 when they hooked up. Middle-agers screwing kids not yet out of their teens is creepy, regardless of gender. Hello Doug Hutchinson!!

      • Kelis says:

        So why is Brad so adored here in light of your second point? A guy in his twenties moving in with a 15 year old girl. Christ, did she even have her period yet? No, there IS a double standard.

      • Bonjour says:

        The Rum Diaries was filmed in 2009 at which time Heard was 23, there are rumors that they started hooking up back then. Aron Taylor Johnson was not 17 when Nowhere boy was filmed. For my money i dont see anything worse in Sam Taylor woods behavior than i do in Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt hooking up with a 15 year old Juliette Lewis when he was in his mid-late 20′s, yet Taylor Wood gets all kinds of shit and people are concerned Aaron hasnt sowed it wild oats. There are no such comments about the young women that get involved with men many decades older than them.

  15. Jegede says:

    @bns I believe shes that desperate too it too.
    Amber was NOTORIOUS in LA for staging pap shots of herself and sending to agencies.
    Her filmography is chockablock with flops and flop TV show too – I can’t believe she had the audacity to shade Lohan – at least Lindsay has starred in and even carried successful movies.
    Amber is a B movie starlet whose role revolves round taking her clothes off in the role of girlfriend b4 getting killed!
    Her bisexual card did not get her anywhere neither did her pap calling and attending every showbiz event going. Depp has given her more exposure than anything else shes done.

  16. Kate says:

    I think it worked pretty well for Nicole Kidman. Cruise definitely gave her a platform she didn’t have before him, and the breakup was the best thing that ever happened to her career. Amber Heard on the other hand — sorry — she’s one of about 10 20 something actresses that all run together for me. I don’t know what she’s done nor do I care.

  17. Lisa says:

    What shade did she throw on Lohan?

    (She throws shade on all her contemporaries?)

  18. Adrien says:

    Her white outfit is a variation of Lily Collins’ paper towel dress.

  19. Aria says:

    The only time I saw her was in an episode of a crappy tv show with LeAnn Rimes´s husband. The show sucked so she did.

    No more Angelina´s wannabe pleaseeeee!!!!

  20. Ginger says:

    She’s a pretty girl…would it kill her to crack a smile? Call Kristen Stewart, they can be sullen, lip biting girlfriends. (And I mean pals not dating)
    On another note, I find one part of this article to be offensive…as a bisexual woman I can attest to the fact that you can be in a relationship with a man (been with my hubby for five years)and still remain faithful as you would with anyone. Just because you are bi does NOT mean you have “urges” and have to be with women while you are committed to a man. That’s just ridiculous! All it means is that you find both sexes attractive sexually, period. UGH Enquirer, really?!

  21. WendyNerd says:

    My Mom was on an artist’s retreat and stayed with a movie producer who knew Johnny Depp and some other celebrities. He said Johnny is stoned off his ass constantly (shock of shocks, I know). So maybe he just keeps forgetting to introduce Amber and just wants to snag some Cool Ranch Doritos instead.

  22. Bijlee says:

    I mean this was obvious. No duh this dude is trying to block her career to stardom. He’s an insecure old man and liked her well enough but didn’t want her to leave him feeling desperate for her attention or affection (and possibly leaving him for someone else before HE was through with her). Hence, he makes it sound like he’ll help her in her career when in reality he doesn’t want to. So along the way he subtley tries to sabotage it, while backhandedly giving her “advice.” Why people fall for this crap is beyond me.

    Either realize a different path and stop fancying yourself an artist (and just become a reality tv famewhore like Clint Eastwood’s wife) or go out and work girl. Deal with the subpar trailer, be professional, sacrifice the perks. Take classes, audition, everything, maybe dye your hair (your current color is too scarjo). Stop trying to be Angelina Jolie 2.0.

  23. Lisa says:

    Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen a photo of Depp’s daughter. I don’t remember her looking like that.

  24. merski says:

    Somewhere out there Vanessa Paradis is laughing her ass off…. :)

  25. Jennifer12 says:

    Being Johnny Depp’s significant other has no significant value.

    • ladybert62 says:

      That was my first thought also.

      My second thought was Ms. Heard’s appearance has changed – perhaps I am confusing her with someone else. But her face and figure look fuller (all that cooking for Mr. Depp???)

      That dress is horrible.

    • Agnetha says:

      I have to politely disagree. I had no idea who she was before she started dating Depp, despite having seen Pineapple Express and Never Back Down, and that Playboy show. Now that she is officially dating Depp, she has gotten a lot of media attention and I know her name and her face. More media attention due to dating Johnny will give her opportunities she might not have had otherwise.

      • Leo says:

        Just because she has media attention, doesn’t mean it will be for good. Take an example for the Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan and other media centers. They are well known but not necessary respected or beloved.

        More media attention due to dating Johnny will give her opportunities she might not have had otherwise.

        Exactly what other opportunities?

        Paranoia? This film is close to be a gigantic BOMB. Despised by the critics and zero support by the audiences.
        Cali with Alex Pettyfer? The film is on hold
        Machete Kills? Even if the film is sucessful she’s not the principal reason, especially with other names like Sofia Vergara and Lady Gaga
        Her only big future film is with McG -The same guy after “This Means War”

        Check this: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1720028/?ref_=sr_1

        She’s not talented enough, charismatic or box office draw to compete against Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, Jessica Chastain, Carey Mulligan, Rooney Mara, Shailene Woodley, Mia Wasikowska, Andrea Riseborough and Eva Green among others. Even if some of them are annoying -cough Hathaway cough Portman cough Mara cough- they have box office cloud -Even international- and they’re respected by their peers and critics.

        Right now she has media attention, but is not equal to opportunities and this effect only last until a new target will come. Heard is mostly a bimbo with 15 minutes.

      • Agnetha says:

        Yes, I should have added that she will get more media attention due to Johnny, but it is up to her to show us her talent if she has it.

    • Hawkeye says:

      Not really. For starters just look at the number of comments her articles have been getting since she hooked up with Depp compared to before. You may not realize but she’s in the international media and newspapers, all over the world!!! Most of them didn’t even know she existed. However only as as ‘Johnny Depp’s girlfreind’ and that’s the problem.
      Just being ANYBODY’S girlfriend will not get you too far.

  26. bettyrose says:

    Huh? When did AJ wait around for a boyfriend to make her career? If anything, her first two hubbies can thank her for their ongoing name recognition.

    • Elle Kaye says:

      Thank her? For what? She was young, just like Miller. And Billy Bob had won an Oscar for “Sling Blade” and had been nominated for “A Simple Plan” before he married Jolie. LOL…he was hardly a nobody. Yes, she later became an acclaimed actress, but her spouses at the time did not benefit from her talent.

  27. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Good one Jennifer12; hell, she’s not even a good model, not even close to Daria Werbowry or Isabeli Fontana;
    What is it about these generic girls; Their ego’s are out of all proportion to their talent;
    Fame, and the pursuit thereof, really is a delusional drug.

  28. manta says:

    “show me an example of success with this tactic.”
    Lauren Bacall,19, hooking up with Bogart 45 and still married to his then 3rd wife.
    Becoming the 4th Mrs Bogart has made wonders for her status in Hollywood.

    Mia Farrow, 19, hooking up with 49 year-old,twice divorced Frank Sinatra (respective ages at time of the wedding 21 and 51).Farrow was certainly a child from the inner circle of Hollywood, but Sinatra’s connections certainly didn’t hurt.
    And even it ended awfully, I’d say that being Clint Eastwood’s girlfriend for a few years certainly raised Sondra Locke’s profile.
    That’s from her IMDB page:” It was the start of a professional and domestic relationship that gained Locke more attention than ever before and would generate her most notable film work.”

    Granted, those ones didn’t exactly happen yersterday, but hey,what has already worked can still work.

    • madchen says:

      Sondra’s relationship with Clint eventually ruined her. She also never had any juice on her own – it was always in relation to him. Her story is really pretty sad. Out of all of his live-in girlfriends, she was the one he chose to be cruel to. After many years together and then being dumped in an awful break up, she couldn’t support herself and he wouldn’t help her. He finally used his puts at Warner Bros. to give her a very small production deal, which didn’t cost him anything.

      • Delorb says:

        Since when does the guy owe anything to his former girlfriend? Not trying to start anything, but good lawd. You date a guy, you split up, you don’t owe him a movie deal and he certainly doesn’t owe YOU one. I don’t care that it ended badly or that she didn’t have a career before or after him. That’s just how life is.

      • Elle Kaye says:

        If I remember correctly, he pretty much black-balled her in the industry. No one would hire her. It was ugly.

        Wasn’t that one of the first palimony cases? She stated that since they had lived together for so long, that he owed her, in essence, alimony…and wasn’t there that Lee (something) attorney? Now I have to go look it up.

  29. madchen says:

    I just can’t with her clothing. I’ve said this before…she needs someone to dress her properly for the red carpet. The white outfit is hanging off of her and it doesn’t fall correctly. As for the shoes, the less said the better.

  30. Paloma says:

    I think Amber is average at best.

    Katie Holmes; She needs a hit behind her name.
    Nicole Kidman’s biggest break came after her divorce from Cruise.

    • Delorb says:

      It was like Hollywood felt bad for Nicole. She got a ‘pity’ Oscar. Prior to marrying Tom (which seemed like a business deal to me…on her part…he always seemed to have actual feelings for her…now he’s not the worlds best actor, so it was probably genuine), Nicole had what seemed to be the beginning of a great career. She had made her mark with Dead Calm. Without Tom she would have been a big star. With Tom, she seemed to change her priorities career-wise.

      As for Tom, he really needs to spend some time ALONE. I know its scary, but he’ll be better off in the long run.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Nicole played as Virginia Woolf in “The Hours”, for which she won her oscar. I would never, in a million years, call that a pity oscar. That was well deserved. She was amazing. My favorite scene of hers is ‘The Bird Funeral’…where she looks at that poor dead bird with envy. That was amazing acting.

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVSTlAynRco

      • LAK says:

        It was most definitely a pity Oscar. Tom behaved so badly towards Nicole during the divorce, and she never hid her heartbreak whilst saying only nice things about him. True her performance in the film was good, but the other women in the film did a better job and poor Julianne Moore had to give way to Nicole much like Meryl is having to give way to Julia for AUGUST SAGE.

        It happens all the time in Hollywood.

  31. The Original Mia says:

    Umm…what? She does realize Angelina is who she is because she’s talented, fearless, and isn’t waiting on a man to make her into anything.

    • Jenny says:

      My first thought when I saw this article was that Angelina was already a superstar by the time she met Pitt. I believe she had won her Oscar for Girl Interrupted by then and was doing Tomb Raider movies. Amber has been forgettable in forgettable movies.

    “a young actress should never hook up with a decades-older boyfriend in the hopes that he will boost her career.”

    Continuing from my former examples of Bacall, Farrow and Locke, I will add Dyan Cannon: marrying in her 20s(and becoming the mother of his only child) Cary Grant in his 60s certainly gave a boost to her profile.
    That’s fun, I’m testing my memories and knowledge about Hollywood since I read your post, but as usual, most pertinent examples will come to mind in a couple of days,late, much too late.

  33. erin says:

    So now we’re using The Nat Enquirer for our news source? Just, wow. Make all the snarky remarks you want to about Johnny Depp, but it won’t change the fact that he’s a talented, awesome looking guy. Was Vanessa Paradis such an awesome person that the idea of separating from her is horrific? Without make-up, Vanessa is scary looking and their relationship was basically over 3 or 4 years ago. I know little about Amber, but she seems nice enough. So, you guys can continue the hate fest.

  34. Zombie Shortcake says:

    I figured she was stepping out with women.

    • Mala says:

      Naaah! she said in another interview that she only had ONE girlfriend.
      Yep, to the meltdown of all her lesbians fans, their -allegedly- “role model” lesbian, only has had one relationship with a woman, her ex Tasya Van Ree.

      And now, we can question if she was with Tasya because she’s really into “women”? or maybe because she really has “type”?. No one can deny that her ex is like the female Johnny Depp, not only physically (brown skin, tattoos, hats, older, etc) but also that alternative and artistic side.

      Maybe, she’s really atracted to one kind of person, and now she’s with the man (the whole package (no pun intended. LOL!) for a woman who always was with men before)

  35. Mary says:

    She has a crazy symmetrical face

  36. ds says:

    Am I crazy ’cause I remember when I first read about her here she was presented as a hot and sexy new actress most people liked and found talented?

    Happy fanfic Friday, y’all!

    I’m really tired of women throwing shade at other women for no reason. (And I’ll admit that I can be guilty of it, too.)

    Men still run Hollywood. And, in most spheres, they still run the world. How are we going to change this (which I consider to be a good thing for men and women; it’s good to have a wide variety of points of view and opinions influencing things) without learning how to lift each other up?

    I really thought this website was different. Lately, it has seemed to me to be pretty negative, especially toward women for some reason. I may be wrong about this, but it has also seemed to me like the analysis in the articles is a bit knee jerk and not particularly well thought through. Slightly lazy reporting. (I’m really sorry about saying this–in part because it’s a negative comment and I do want to practice what I preach.) I think we can all do better. I understand this is a site about celebrities and it’s interesting to call them on their sh*t. And I’m not saying it’s bad to do that. But there’s so much really positive stuff to comment on, too, don’t you think?

    It’s not a very popular view, but I kinda like Amber Heard, so far. She seems more articulate than the average starlet. And as a blonde, myself, I like to see other blondes coming across as smart, interesting and articulate.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      LOVE your post! It gets sad when even harmless little bits of (probably untrue) gossip provokes such venom! Recently it seems no matter who the post is about, there is so much anger.

      I tend to be pretty “meh” about most stars, and it takes a serious event to earn my outrage. Dating someone and aspiring to be a better actor (which is an “artistic” profession) seems so harmless to me. I don’t get the hate for Amber.

    • Vesta says:

      You can like her as much you want! There’s nothing wrong with different opinions.

      I am a blonde myself and I never root for anybody because they have a certain hair colour. Why would I? Because it’s supposed SO surprising if someone is a smart blonde? I find that kind of thinking degrading. I never thought blondes are dumber in the first place.

      So I don’t care care if Amber Heard had green hair or whatever – I just haven’t seen any special talent in her performances and her recent “I’m so special artist” talks seem not very intelligent. Plus she’s using her relationship to get attention – I’ve no respect for that kind of antics. Just an opinion.

    • Joshie says:

      I’ll give her one thing. She is actually way more unassuming than I thought she would be. Her expressions in those pictures are that way as well – not boredom but unassuming and just natural.
      I really don’t find her as obnoxious as ppl here are blaming her to be. Her refusing to talk about Depp or not wanting to be a celebrity is actually due to Depp’s own media-shy persona. I mean has he talked about her yet?? I don’t even understand how she is fame-hoing out of her relationship when she doesn’t even talk about it?? Media and tabloids?? In that case even Brad Pitt ,Jolie, Depp are fame-hoing as well.

  39. ZAK says:

    Amber is a pretty girl and from what I’ve seen is a decent actress. I still think that she is Depp’s midlife crisis. I think her relationship with Depp is actually hurting her career because she was not established before hooking up with him. She is Johnny Depp’s girlfriend and when they break up she will be Johnny Depp’s Ex-girlfriend unless she can get some attention grabbing roles.

  40. Mala says:

    The day that “National Enquirer” becomes a reliable source, Amber will have a career as Angelina. Enough said!

  41. iheartjacksparrow says:

    Hey, Johnny, I’m available and I love watching old movies.

    Over on Rotten Tomatoes, Paranoia is at 4% so that movie is not going to help Amber’s “artist” persona.

  42. Jane says:

    She’s 27 and a self-described “rebel”. She doesn’t have to listen to him. Pity should only go so far.

  43. CF98 says:

    I saw her in Paranoia last night and I had no issue with her before that all I knew about her was that she was Johnny Depp’s GF.

    I don’t doubt there are women who are desperate enough to get with certain men for a career boost but not all of them…..

    Regardless as far as Angelina people forget her father is one of the more celebrated actors in Hollywood in Jon Voight I’m sure that helped too.

    • lisa2 says:

      Jon Voight was and is a good actor. But had a bad reputation in Hollywood. He was difficult on sets and would not accept roles for some EGO reason. He at one point was not working for a long time. Despite the fact that he had 2 children and an ex wife. Which is why when Angelina’s mother died it was known that he owned a lot of money in back child support. Jon was taking bit parts when he got the role with Angie in Lara Croft. A job he got because of her. His career started taking off again after his using his daughter for Self promotion. Almost causing her to maybe lose her adopted child because of his allegations (which have been misquoted and taken out of full context)

      so Jon Voight did not make Angelina’s career. Just because you have a famous parent doesn’t mean you are going to be as successful. There are way too many examples of the opposite.

  44. St says:

    I believe that she is bored with him. Johnny does look like boring and sad person. I also believe that she thought she will become movie star thanks to dating him. Silly. She will never make it. Her face is too ordinary to become movie star. She may get some “girlfriend” roles for some time (like 1-2 years) and then will vanish when producers will understand that she brings nothing to success of the movie and is very replicable with other pretty young actresses. Like it was with Evan Mendes, Jessica Biel, Olivia Wilde, Seinna Miller and many other.

    And you know how she gives now all those interviews and tells how she is real actress and talks about roles and stuff. Like she belongs in that world. But every article pretty much destroys her. Because everyone only are talking about how she dates Depp and hopes to become big star because of it. Everyone laughs at her. That happens when you try to sneak on top through your bed and not talent.

    Also Johnny is probably getting crazy with suspicion that she sleeps with younger men all the time. Like every middle age rich dude who dates woman twice his age.

  45. Tiffany says:

    Lily is the spitting image of Vanessa. Man, genes are strong with that family.

  46. frankly says:

    Her boobs looked depressed. Everything she’s wearing has unflattering tight fabric smooshing her boobs down.

  47. Leslie says:

    It’s really sad that the only way these wanna be actresses can get attention is by hooking up with some guy. I’m thinking this chick and that Cuckoo girl who hooked up with superman. I’m guessing it must be really hard to get decent roles unless you have a PR team pushing you like this.

  48. Carolyn says:

    In that photo with Depp & children I still can’t work out which is Amber and which are his daughters.

    Oops PR profile/efforts not working out too well.

    Star quality. You either have it or you don’t. If ya can’t act, ya can’t act.

    Grow up Depp.

  49. ShakenNotStirred says:

    Is it sad to say I hope all of this is true?

  50. Mary says:

    this lady is annoying. Better hold on to Johnny Amber other wise no one will ever know who you were.

  51. moon says:

    Doesn’t matter if Johnny got Amber some auditions she never would’ve had otherwise – she would still need to ace those auditions on her own merit.

  52. Angelica says:

    I don’t hate Angelina Jolie, but why is she EVERYONE’S gold standard for who they want to become? No kidding, every couple of years there’s yet another sort of new actress aiming to be Jolie’s successor, but there are so many more great ones in the business, and it drives me bananas! They’ve already been mentioned, but I love Catherine Zeta-Jones and Uma Thurman, and I irrationally love Jennifer Connelly, Meryl Streep, and Susan Surandon. Angelina is a great actress, don’t get me wrong, but I personally don’t find her to be the most awesome, great, wonderful, delicious, intoxicating actress EVERRRRR!!! There are options, ladies! Go shopping.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I think it’s because a lot of men and women want to be famous, not necessarily talented. And Angelina is probably one of the most recognizable, high profile celebrities there are–regardless of her talent (or lack thereof, in your opinion). I think she’s talented and charismatic, which makes people want to watch her—but I, in no way, think she’s as talented as Meryl Streep. Few are, and Streep has a different sort of fame.

    • Agnetha says:

      Thank you, I love Angelina too, but there are so many other great actresses. Amber would also have to act super bat-sh@! crazy if she really is trying to be the next Angelina. Do people remember how crazy she was? She made out with her brother, wore vials of blood, did intense nude scenes, and had that look in her eyes. I have yet to see Amber do anything like that, she is dating an older, boring man for God’s sake. So she is saying she is a rebel from Texas, how does that mean she wants to be Angelina?

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I have a question about the making out with her brother thing. Is there a video or any other pictures of that. Because when I googled it, I came across pictures of a close mouthed, on the lips kiss. That’s not the same as making out i.e. kissing with tongue. Some families kiss each other on the lips…I don’t find that weird, unless of course there is tongue involved.

      • LAK says:

        Virgilia Coriolanus – That is all you’ll find because that is all it was. The kiss with her brother was exaggerated in the re-telling to point where people really believe that they ‘made out’ per @Agnetha above.

        It was unusual in an era when people were still conservative in their public gestures. It’s amazing how much freer/open public expression has become especially when you think 2001 isn’t that long ago.

        AJ kissing her brother ON THE LIPS was considered shocking, but it certainly wasn’t the ‘making out with her brother’ exaggeration that is repeated ad nauseum.

      • Agnetha says:

        Google images of Angelina and brother kiss. Tell me that those images of Angelina and her brother kissing are normal pecks between siblings? Not to mention all the different poses and outfits they are wearing in the pictures.

        Totally normal. Americans are so uptight about showing affection. Yeah, keep telling yourself that LAK. She kissed her brother and would make out with him for attention or whatever her reason was. And it worked, it got them tons of attention.

        Angelina and her brother kissing was not normal. I have lived in Europe and siblings do not kiss the way those 2 kissed.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        @Agnetha
        http://asset.ninemsn.com.au/img/000/000/220/352/AngelinaJolieandJamesHaven.jpg

        This^^^^^is the only image that shows up, when you google ‘Angelina Jolie James Haven kiss’—that’s not an open mouth kiss. The only reason this is (or was) a thing, is because they both have huge lips…especially her brother.

      • LAK says:

        When did this turn into an American vs European thing? And if you are going there, we Brits are famous for our stiff upper lip so definitely more uptight than Everyone else.

        Video of the night in question shows kissing on the lips. Ditto all other pics. The thing is, both of them have a very sensual quality to them, so an innocent kiss looks more than it is.

        And for the record, I have watched the Oscars live since I was a little girl, before they had second delays to remove any potentially controversial proceedings, so I remember this particular kiss. It was made all the more scandalous because she went on to say she was so in love with her brother at that moment, or words to that effect.

        This kiss did cause a scandal, but there was no ongoing repeat performance as you claim.

      • Joshie says:

        Older boring man?? It’s Johnny Depp!! Yes Angelina was a star on her own but please! she became most famous only after ‘Brangelina’ – with an almost 40yr old Brad Pitt. Before that most ppl around the world knew only Tomb Raider.
        Just comapre the media coverage for the facts.

      • joonbug says:

        It’s Johnny Depp!! I know it’s blasphemous to put it this way but Depp is like a male Angelina Jolie (or Jolie was channelling Depp) – tattoos, crazy behaviour( breaking up hotel rooms vs kissing your brother)and even unconventional roles. Both of them are similar even in terms of posing – sultry. And unique charisma to burn along with effortless sex appeal.

        And I guess she’s actually trying to mimick Depp himeself via Jolie-like career.

    • Aud says:

      When it comes to film success, I doubt that Jolie can be considered a gold standard. To date, her of the last decade, haven’t put that many butts on cinema seats. Her directorial debut was a disappointment.

    • Jade says:

      Huh, I love Angelina but I don’t really rate her as a top actor though admittedly she has won awards. Top actor billing belongs to folks like Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren etc. I feel that Angelina can try to have more range in her acting.

      • lisa2 says:

        It is not all about your acting chops. It is about the Power you have the power you have. Meryl is a great actress. but believe it or not she can make bad movies too, same with Helen and every other actress. No one is ever 100 for 100.

        Angelina has power. Power most women in Hollywood don’t have. And it has nothing to do with winning an Oscar. She can pick her roles. She has scripts written specifically for her. She can stay off the Big screen for 3 years and the public still talks about everything she does or thinks. She can demand a big salary and get back end points. She is an International Star. Something a lot of women that were named are not. I don’t meant that they are not known, I mean that Domestic BO is not the make or break for Angelina’ because she can take a film overseas and make loads of money. Most of the actress that are named can’t do that, and can’t do that with their names alone.

        When Angelina is in a film for the most part she is the ONLY female in it. She is not usually cast as the second banana. and even when she is the 2nd player she is still promoted as a LEAD. See Wanted or The Good Shepard. She has that kind of Power and that is very rare for women.

        She can get her projects financed and the studio backs her and supports her. Again not something you see Major Studios doing with many other actresses.

        so regardless of tabloid crap and gossip She has not been affected professionally by any of it. If the stories and nastiness that is written and has been written about her or Brad were believed or whatever then they both would have been ruined. That is not happening. And like them or not she and Brad have a lot of power in Hollywood. And yes other actors and actresses would love to have that kind of status.

        There are many amazing actors/actresses but they don’t have Power. Clout, recognition and admiration.. but no power.

      • joonbug says:

        lisa2 is right. When actressess want to become Angelina they are not talking about acting, it’s stardom, fame, clout and power.
        Meryl is the best but she’s a character actress not a superstar like Depp, Jolie or Pitt.It is about movie star charisma, likability and the ‘IT’ factor, things rarer than acting talent tbh.
        Jolie is not just about the power couple ‘Brangelina’. On contrary it is what it is because of her. She is mainly powerful because she’s the only female superstar thanks to her action movies and much-publicized profile as humanatarian. Even great actresses like Charlize Theron have failed to attain that kind of A-list stardom.
        So despite scoring Depp Amber can be no Jolie. Actually each generation can have only one Angelina Jolie.

      • Meg says:

        @lisa 2 Yeah take notice of it Amber and everyone else – You will never have one thing that Johnny depp, Brad and Angelina do no matter how much you try, including sleeping with them – POWER!

        I love this site!

      • Martha says:

        Angelina’s ‘power’ is mainly due to attaching herself with such humanatarian issues and hot topics that are bound to turn people’s attention anyway. Adoption, for example. It’s also the way she presents things in the media. Take the masectomy issue. The way she revealed the news in a front page editorial took the world by surprise. The following coverage was mainly about the decision in itself rather than ‘Angelina did something’. The concentration of attention that made people notice what she is was mainly from the ‘Brangelina’ scandal & relationship which includes red carpet PDA and ofcourse some attention seeking behaviour that has always been associated with her (Her leg show at the Oscars).

        Such things work only for one time which is why it’s not a viable aim trying to become the next Jolie. She’s a big star mainly due to being a successful action lead but she’s isn’t the only female power. TBH her effect in terms of movies cannot even be compared to Elizabeth Taylor with whom she’s comparable in terms of off-screen status. In terms of Hollywood Depp, Brad, George, Tom etc are powerful than her.

    • Angelica says:

      Whoa, you guys. I like Angelina Jolie, I just don’t think Amber has what it takes to be Angelina. But you guys…I like you guys. Y’all make things interesting…

    • Helshi says:

      I like Angelina Jolie too but it’s only a matter of time – how much time is anyone’s guess. There are very few movies that make tons of money anymore. It’s getting to the point where reality TV is taking over. I expect in the next 10 years we’ll see a very different Hollywood. The A-list stars are now starting to watch shows like Honey Boo-Boo and Housewives…and actually likeing them!

      • Kim says:

        You’re right. There are really no such thing as invincible A-Listers anymore. And Jolie has had couple of action hits but is more famous for her off-screen life than the onscreen one. She is more influential for stuff beyond Hollywood than inside it.

  53. Penguin says:

    Not being snarky, when I 1st saw that header pic of him, her & his 2 daughters I genuinely Cldnt decipher which 1 she was. She looks no older in that pic than the oldest daughter. I actually had 2 look it up.

  54. Goodadvice says:

    Ummm … I don’t know about the rest, but telling her NOT to be in 50 Shades of Grey is good advice. That movie is going to be a career killer to everyone involved.

  55. SuzyQ says:

    Amber Heard said in an interview she read Ayn Rand and was totally into her philosophy – do anything & everything…even if u have to pull out your grandmothers teeth… to get what you want… regardless of right or wrong.

  56. Mew says:

    If this is true, well, too sad. Nobody made Angie but Angie herself. Start from there girl, nobody can make you.

  57. Aud says:

    Can’t believe how he left a woman with character, creativity and artistry for a Hollywood mediocrity.

    • Leo says:

      Spot on. At least Vanessa Paradis is laughing in France.

      • erin says:

        Well, if Vanessa Paradis is “laughing in France,” she’s doing it by herself. She basically left her kids in L.A. so she could live in France, go to fashion shows, do photo shoots in barely any clothes and make little French movies. Lily looks miserable or mad in any photos with her. I guess Vanessa deems her life in France a good trade-off for being a parent. She has little short visits with her kids, like a maiden aunt. Johnny gets all the blame but it seems like Vanessa was the one wanting a single life in France.

      • Kari says:

        @Erin
        No one knows about their custody arrangement or how often either of them are with their children. And to try to assume the relationship a parent and child have with one another, through a photo assumption is a huge mistake. It is ridiculous to believe that after 14 years of being a devoted parent (and supportive partner while Depp pursued movie stardom) Vanessa would just give her children away to live the single life. Most people didn’t know how often Vanessa was in L.A when she and JD were still together, and they don’t know now.
        If you’re that sensitive about the unflattering comments concerning Depp, then maybe you should visit one of his fan forums where everyone shares the same opinions and no ones feathers get ruffled. But slandering Vanessa and making fun of her appearance ( like you did in a previous post) isn’t gonna change the fact that not everyone idolizes Mr. Depp!

    • Suzie says:

      @Kari It’s called an opinion. And how can you say that Depp wasn’t a good parent just because he was chasing stardom? If that’s true then it applies for Paradis as well if she’s been working a lot recently. However if you believe Paradis is fulfilling her duties rightly despite her career then the same applies for Depp, right??

      BTW just becuase it’s a gossip site only Depp-bashing is allowed??? It’s ok to slander him or his appearence and clothes but not others?? Any counter-points or support are only meant for fansites?

      I’m sorry but you seem to be the one sensitive about people supporting Depp.As you said no one knows anything, it’s all just gossiping. So if you’re justified in speculating about Depp then others are justified in doing so about other ppl involved.

  58. AustinGrl says:

    Sorry to tell you honey, but you ARE the byproduct of Johnny’s mid life crises. You think he could lie to his love of over a decade but couldnt possibly lie to you because what you two have is “special”? HAHAHAHA!

  59. AustinGrl says:

    On another note, I cant believe Vanessa would want to be anywhere near Johnny and his Trade-in. That’s the french for ya. Bigger woman than me, thats for sure.

  60. Jade says:

    I think her profile has risen after dating Depp. Before Rum Diaries, never heard of her. If she wasn’t dating Depp, I doubt she will continue to have this type of coverage after RD. Nowadays, her name is mentioned when/then Depp’s name comes up.

    Anyway, I can’t remember how they hooked up. Was it when Depp was still married? If yes, wonder why compared to Jolie (even though Brad did not cheat on Aniston) she did not have an army of loonies against her? Ah well, we know why.

    • Suzie says:

      How do you know Brad did not cheat on Aniston? Anyway that’s what the army of loons believed since it was immediately after the movie that he divorced with Aniston and hooked up with Jolie.

      Depp worked with Amber 3 or 4 years back.However they hooked up only in late 2011 during the press tour. And Vanessa and him were said to have split up atleast a year before the official announcement in mid 2012 (all the signs were there). Split-up rumours started much earlier than the hook-up ones started. So it’s rather rebound relationship than cheating and that’s how even the tabloids run the story.The drama has been more about Depp’s supposed mid-life crisis and Vanessa wanting to get busy with her career in France. Also Depp has a history of immediate rebounding, Paradis herself was the product of one right after Kate Moss.

      I’m guessing your ‘Why’ part. Vanessa Paradis is not Jennifer Aniston and for that matter Amber is no Jolie.

  61. LaurieH says:

    With very few exceptions, Hollywood relationships never end well. That’s because they don’t start well. Everyone in Hollywood wants something: money, fame, acclaim and their fragile egos stroked. It is a uniquely hedonistic community in which the whims and demands of the self-absorbed are syncophantically and patronizingly indulged in order to bring out their best work (which circle-jerkingly enriches others). This is why you see so much “charity” in Hollywood…it’s little more a conscience cover. Relationships are equally self-serving. In Amber Herd’s case (whoever the hell she is), bedding a man nearly twice her age is akin to taking a night course at the local community college: it’s meant to boost her profile and career. For Johnny Depp, it’s a means of evading the reality that he’s a 50 yr old in an industry that worships youth and the inevitable mortality shock that he’s sliding down the dark side of middle age. When two people enter into a relationship for selfish reasons, no good will come of it.

    • Vesta says:

      I’m loving your analysis, LaurieH ! Especially what you said about “charity” in Hollywood. It’s of course good that they give because they certainly can afford it. But I can’t help myself from feeling that it’s mostly just a twisted form of ego tripping for so many of them (let alone excellent publicity.)

      As for this relationship you nailed it too. They just keep using each other until there’s nothing left to use.

    • Vera says:

      JD’s not like other Hollwoodians in many respects. Is known to be a top-class guy and really generous and unique. Loyal to what he believes and who he trusts whether it courts good-will or notoriety and what other ppl think of those persons. Vanessa Paradis was a rebound like Amber but he forged along-time relationship with her and the friendship still exists.This maynot be to do with ‘mid-life’ crisis just because he dates a young woman.He’s known to be someone comfortable with who he is and what he does.That’s why he’s always been ‘uncoventional’. Your observations in this particular regard may or maynot be true.

      However your take on Hollywood relationships in general is spot-on. It’s either exists as a compromise and business arrangement or it just ceases to exist.
      Romance and Passion are fleeting. Real relationship is about putting in the effort and accepting. From the very start. Love ya for the comment!

  62. Jade says:

    To add, I think this definitely worked for Catherine Zeta Jones. But to her credit, she honed her acting skills accordingly.

    To me, Depp is only good for a fling. To be fair, from what I have read of him, I can’t imagine living with him.

    • defacto says:

      Vanessa Paradis has lived with him for 14 years, more than many other Hollywood relationships, and has described herself to be lucky to have spent her life with him. He’s not Clooney or DiCaprio. He’s always had long-term relationships with girlfriends living with him. Kate Moss has said that he was the only person to take care of her. Infact their split happened because he wanted to settle down but she was still a party-girl. And Winona has described as an amazing person as well.

      I wonder what you’ve read about him.

    • Dorothy says:

      Do you realize that Vanessa Paradis was living with him for atleast a decade? He’s said to be a pretty laid-back guy who likes to stay at home, out of Hollywood scene or parties, when not working. He even has an island and yacht for that purpose. That is exactly why he is considered to be an outsider. He’s said to be a great father and a good family man.

  63. Jade says:

    @lisa2 I agree and have always thought acting chops alone are not defining Angie’s power in Hollywood. You have reasoned well so I will not add further. End of day, Angie is pure movie star charisma and an extraordinary woman outside of Hollywood.

  64. UsedToBeLulu says:

    Why, for the love of God, do they feel the need to announce her sexuality each and very time? ‘Bisexual beauty’. Bleh.

  65. EscapedConvent says:

    The woman at the top of the photo in the yellow T-shirt–standing next to Lily-Rose—isn’t that Tasya, Amber Heard’s former girlfriend? Johnny Depp only has one daughter, Lily-Rose, top left in that photo.

    Most people have noticed that Tasya looks like Johnny Depp, down to wearing the same hat. It looks like her in this pic.

    I thought she was stunningly beautiful when she first appeared, but now there’s Allison Williams with the same look/features, but ten times the acting verve and personality.

    This does look like a deal, where he gets a hottie and she hopes for a career boost. They both look bored and the situation is sad; nothing to make anyone want to see either of them in a movie.

    She does look rather bored in most of the promotional tour photo op’s and it looks like he is pissed that her people were probably the ones that called the paps. Johnny really is known for hating them, especially when they photograph his kids. I think theirs is a relationship that has run it’s course. He should not date actresses or models anymore. He doesn’t have anything to prove he has what matters, that is why he is hinting at quitting and choosing a more quite life I believe.

    Amber Heard should find a better boyfriend. Johnny Depp is box office poison unless he is wearing a pirate outfit. Nobody goes to the movies to watch this guy…NOBODY!

      You can say it even louder, even then you won’t be convinced yourself. Maybe you should try something ‘real’ to make yourself feel better.

      On contrary he’s one of the very few so-called superstars that ppl give a try just because he’s in a movie. Nothing else can explain the money that stinkers like The Tourist or such odd pointless movies like Dark Shadows made. Even his peers require good reviews or Oscar buzz or a conventional genre.He was a leading man for more than a decade pre-POTC movies. How could that have happened if absolutely nobody ever saw him except as a Pirate?

      TBH only he could’ve made the kind of movies he did and be such a success.That includes the Pirate.
      Johnny Depp is one of a kind. That is why he is who he is.Check your facts VAN…?? oh wait

    Most of that sounds like rubbish. I can’t believe that he said she was lucky to be with him.

    I do believe she is with him to boost her career and because he’s having a midlife crisis though. They are as bad as each other. Amber is good looking but seems to have all the personality of a potato. Her lines about being an artist and keeping her private and working life seperate seem like she’s just spouting the same lines Depp came out with years before her.

    I wonder why a nobody gets paid 20 mill per movie, is getting to pick his own movies and directors, getting scripts and roles written for him, getting back-end profits, is an international superstar with all of his movies grossing atleast 200 mill plus, is the highest grossing box-office star with 8 billion dollars of which Pirates franchise form only half, gets major magazine covers and media coverage, winning favourite movie-star awards and polls many times, is a major sex-symbol, is one of the busiest working actors with everyone suggesting him for every damn thing, has the back-up of major studio,became a 3 time Oscar nominee and a golden globe winner,is one of the richest and influential actors, heck even has so many ppl fussing about his girlfriend who’s a nobody!!……..as in one of the biggest and most popular movie stars in the world.

    I’m with you man, something wrong with my planet. Hope in yours a nobody is just that, a nobody. I mean you have to be from another planet, right?

    johnny’s going thru a mid-life crisis you say? i doubt it. i just think he likes younger women. in his mind, most older women don’t looks as good, are too independent and opinionated, and would give him a good challenge. I just don’t think depp wants a good challenge from anyone. he wants to call the shots and have more babies, so a younger woman it is.

  72. moot says:

    I’ve nothing against Amber Heard, and I think she’s quite beautiful, but in that bland way that I can’t remember what she looks like the second I look away from her photo. If I saw her commit a crime, I wouldn’t know how to describe her to a police sketch artist.

    Perhaps she (or her PR team) is aware of this, hence the pushing out there of her bisexuality, hooking up with Depp, trying to brand herself as edgy and un-girly and tough. If I were her, I too would be trying to push a backstory to keep her separated from other beautiful and bland female actors.

    Having said that, nothing she’s been in so far as interested me.

    Brad Pitt didn’t make Jolie. On contrary it’s Pitt who’s benefitting from the resulting media attention.She is a star of her own thanks to her action movies, Oscar, some drama cred as a leading actress and her well publicized profile as a humanatarian. Just look how her masectomy was a front page news all over the world.

    Brangelina is what it is because of who she is, not the other way. Power couples happen only when BOTH of them are superstars not if the whole world doesn’t care for you except as the male superstar’s ‘squeeze’.

    Brangelina also put on red-carpet pda shows, adopt kids and sell pictures of kids to the media. Johnny Depp doesn’t play such fame-games and is actually famous for that. He won’t give up ‘who he is’ just a temporary squeezez wannabe ambitions. And she expects to become Jolie just by playing minor roles in duds like Paranoia and spouting Jolie’s/Depp’s ‘ideas’ in interviews?? She even sucks as a wannabe .
