Star: Is Johnny Depp trying to pursue his 24-year-old costar Daisy Ridley?

Rock in Rio Lisboa 2016 - Day 3 - Performances

There are three men around the same age who are all single/divorced right now: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp. Twenty years ago, that would have been major. Twenty years ago, those three were the biggest deals in the world. Women loved them. Everyone wanted to date at least one of them. But none of those guys has aged well, right? I would say that Brad is probably the least scathed of all of them, but even then, his next girlfriend/wife is going to be dealing with his mountain’s worth of baggage. I’m still a little bit surprised that Tom Cruise hasn’t presented us with a new girlfriend or wife in the past few years. And as for Depp… well, who knows what his next girlfriend is going to have to deal with? Out of those three, I do predict that Depp will be the first one to debut a new girlfriend. And I bet she’ll be young too. But will she be Daisy Ridley?? Oh, God.

Trainwreck Johnny Depp has developed quite the crush on his ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ costar Daisy Ridley – even if the feeling isn’t exactly mutual, claims a source on the set of the remake.

“Daisy’s in a tough spot. She clearly thinks the world of Johnny as an actor, but simply isn’t interested in pursuing a romance with him,” says the spy.

Not only have ex-wife Amber Heard’s accusation of domestic abuse left a lasting impression, but Daisy is also happily dating actor Charlie Hamblett. Still, Johnny and his ego remain undeterred.

“He isn’t accustomed to being turned down, especially by a younger actress. Johnny’s convinced that if he cleans up his act, Daisy might change her mind.”

I think we’re long past the time when Depp could “clean up his act” and attract an up-and-coming actress like Daisy. My first reaction was “gross” and that was followed by “she’s too smart for that.” But now that I’m thinking about it… Daisy does have that “look” that Depp seems to love. I could see how he would like her and try to win her over. Still, Gossip Cop “checked in” with a “reliable source close to Ridley,” and that source says that Daisy and Johnny’s relationship is “purely professional, and he isn’t trying to pursue her.” Sure. That might be Daisy’s perspective. Meanwhile, Depp is preparing a bouquet of his finest scarves. Then it will be a small token of skull-themed jewelry. Run, girl. RUN.

PS… I still thought Angelina Jolie was cast in this remake, but she passed on it last summer. The cast is still pretty LIT though.

    Ewwwww….I mean, good fiction writing by Star, but…ewwwwww.
    Daisy you seem smarter than that, I hope you are!

  2. ell says:

    daisy isn’t dating that charlie guy anymore, she has a new boyfriend, younger and better looking than depp, so i’m hoping she has no intention of going there. ewwww.

  3. SusanneToo says:

    Fire up the Millenium Falcon, Daisy, and GTHO.

  4. Mousyb says:

    Not only is he gross looking but any woman would be a fool to get with him after the shitstorm of last year – for her own personal sake and also her career.

    He seriously needs to go away to one of his private islands, detox, and get some help….

  5. Marie says:

    I love how you continue to use that nasty AF picture of him everytime you post a Depp story.

  6. lucy2 says:

    Run Daisy run!

    While this story is likely fiction, the “Daisy’s in a tough spot” stuck out to me. Why should she be in a tough spot? She’s dating someone else, this is a professional workplace, and she’s not interested. End of story.

  7. MC2 says:

    Poop- I wanted to see this movie & will now pass. Damn Depp. He already made me cringe on the Caribbean ride at Disney too. I can’t stand his face.

    Studios- please stop casting this mess. If Lilo can’t get insured then how the hell is this dude?

  8. jerkface says:

    Johnny Derp will have to cruise the extreme D list of actresses for dates after his life pooped out in public the way it did. He has pickled his brain.

  9. Heather says:

    She looks like Jonny in drag, though.

  10. Rapunzel says:

    Hummm… Conspiracy theory here: What if Disney is testing the waters for a PR romance? It owns Stat Wars and Pirates; imagine the stars of both franchises coming together to date?

    I don’t think it is happening…. But I won’t be surprised if it does.

    • teacakes says:

      I’m sure Disney would love it, but they don’t need a PR romance to promote Star Wars, that franchise promotes itself on its own.

      I mean, when even Rogue One can book a billion $ with no household names in the cast and no PR romances, I think Disney can do just fine off the rest of Star Wars without that shit.

    The whole “she turned him down but hes determined to clean up his act and win her over” line disturbs me. She said “No, I am not interested” thats not code for “try hard” or “ask me later” SHE. DOESNT. WANT. YOUR. HASBEEN. ASS.

  12. Sage says:

    Gag, why must you post that picture of Johnny?!?
    I can’t see any young upcoming actress entering into a PR relationship with Johnny. His shine dimmed a long time ago.

  13. serena says:

    Stay away from her, Scarfy!!

  14. teacakes says:

    IF Star isn’t just making this stuff up……. BACK OFF MY GIRL REY, SCARFY.

    She’s the lead of Star Wars ffs, and quite a well-received and popular one at that. She does not need any entanglements with this pos, either on the career or personal life level.

  15. Tourmaline says:

    I just saw his “Sauvage” cologne commercial on TV the other day and almost fell over laughing. He is made of delusions, abusiveness, and smeared kohl.

  16. Raina says:

    Omg that picture!! Has Depp died and no one told him!?

  17. Libra girl says:

    He’s a straight up creeper. Vile.

    I heard this story was made up perhaps you need to stop copying crap stories from silly gossip media. I’m no fan of anyone. But I dislike people who feel it their business to discredit others with no proof. Karma has a way of finding you too.
