Johnny Depp and Amber Heard work because she’s a “free spirit”

"The Rum Diary" Premieres in the UK

Johnny Depp has proposed to his girlfriend, Amber Heard. At first I thought it was a pretty crummy thing for him to do to Vanessa Paradis, who he was with for over 15 years, and they never got engaged. Is it because he didn’t want to marry her – or is it because getting married wasn’t important to her?

Anyway, Johnny has proposed to his girlfriend, Amber Heard, whom he’s been dating for what, a year or two? Anyway, People magazine has confirmed the news, and now has a story about how basically they’ve never been better since they got together.

He’s a 50-year-old superstar who spent 14 years (mostly) happily unwed to his longtime love. She’s a 27-year-old actress on the rise whose last relationship was with a woman.

Now Johnny Depp and Amber Heard — who only recently started stepping out together publicly — are engaged.

What made Depp get so serious so fast? “She’s a great match for him and his individuality,” says a source who knows Depp. “She’s a free spirit.”

Raised in Texas, Heard has proclaimed her love for shooting guns, driving fast cars (she tools around in a 1968 Mustang) and collecting books, a particular passion of Depp’s.

After roles on the CW’s Hidden Palms and the movie Pineapple Express, Heard was cast as Depp’s love interest in 2011′s The Rum Diary — and their chemistry was undeniable. “You can’t help but adore his talent, his passion, his magnetic force that pulls you into all his brilliance,” she said at the time.

Of course, at the time Depp was still coupled with French singer and actress Vanessa Paradis, 41, the mother of his children Lily Rose, 14, and Jack, 11. They split in 2012. And Heard was dating Tasya Van Ree, a photographer.

Heard has said she’s bisexual: “In the past I’ve had successful relationships with men, and now I’m in this successful relationship with a woman. When it comes to love I am totally open,” she told Playboy in 2011.

By last year, Depp and Heard were an official item, with Heard accompanying Depp and his children on the international press tour for The Lone Ranger.

Recently, according to sources close to the couple, Depp popped the question. Says one: “They couldn’t be happier.”

So are they implying that Vanessa was NOT a good match for him? I think after 15 years together, they were doing something right. I think he’s going to end up regretting leaving Vanessa. It seems like a classic case of leaving the wife for a hot new piece. Don’t you think?

CONFIRMED: Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are engaged!

"The Rum Diary" Premieres in the UK

The rumors are true! Johnny Depp and Amber Heard ARE engaged! Earlier this week, Amber was spotted with a large diamond ring on her left hand, causing a lot of rumors to start swirling. While the couple hasn’t made any announcement, US Weekly has confirmed the news with an insider.

“The proposal happened a while ago,” one insider tells Us. “She just didn’t wear the ring.” (Celebuzz reported news of an engagement on Thursday.)

The 50-year-old Into the Woods actor first met his bride-to-be on the set of their movie The Rum Diaries. They confirmed their relationship in June 2012, shortly after Depp announced his split from longtime love Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two kids, daughter Lily-Rose, 14, and son Jack, 11.

Since then, the typically private duo have been spotted all over the world together, from Moscow to Japan, where they took Depp’s kids in July. More recently, on Saturday, Jan. 11, the duo appeared at the Art of Elysium’s 7th Annual HEAVEN Gala in L.A., where they held hands and posed for pictures. They also attended the 2014 Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 12.

Later this year, the couple will reunite onscreen in London Fields, a crime thriller based on the 1989 novel of the same name by Martin Amis. Depp has a cameo on the movie, which also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Jim Sturgess, and Theo James.

Okay – so isn’t this just a HUGE slap in the face to Vanessa Paradis? The couple had been together over 15 years, and he never put a ring on her! Maybe Vanessa was the one who didn’t want to get married? Either way, it’s gotta sting….. even if Vanessa didn’t want to get married, it’s still gotta hurt.

Johnny Depp & Amber Heard On The Rocks?

Johnny Depp & Amber Heard On The Rocks?

It looks like things between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard aren’t as nice as they would appear. In fact, we’ve heard reports that their relationship is actually on the rocks! Who knew?!?

Apparently Amber doesn’t like how controlling he is and is said to find him quite boring. Johnny Depp — boring? Who would’ve thought that?

A source said, “Johnny accepts the fact that Amber has other needs, so he’s told her it’s okay for her to be with women when she has the urge. But Johnny and Amber are in a bad place right now. When they first started dating, he promised to help her become the next Angelina Jolie, but Johnny simply hasn’t followed through.”

The source went on to say, “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 source continued, “It was cute for a while. Amber liked cooking for Johnny and watching old movies with him. But now she’s bored out of her mind.”

Things got worse when the duo were at a press junket in Japan to promote his movie, The Lone Ranger. The source said, “The whole trip was a disaster, and Johnny and Amber got into a huge fight on the flight home. 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.”

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

Disney stands to lose $190 million over the huge flop, ‘The Lone Ranger’

According to Disney’s CFO Jay Rasulo, the company is looking at a loss of betweeen $160 and $190 million next quarter solely because of ‘The Lone Ranger.’

The Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer “western” cost around $215 to make, and it has only made $175.5 million worldwide. It has earned only $86 million domestically, making it just slightly a better flop than ‘John Carter’ which made $73 million.

The news of the write-down comes one day after Depp and Hammer told Yahoo U.K. that it was critics’ vindictive skewering of the film that caused a weak box office run. “I think the reviews were written 7-8 months before we released the film,” said Depp. Hammer agreed, saying, “[Critics] jumped on the bandwagon to try and bash it. They tried to do the same thing to World War Z. It didn’t work, the movie was successful. Instead they decided to slit the jugular of our movie.”

For Disney, the loss hurts, but it isn’t crippling. The company’s portfolio now includes cash cows like Pixar, Marvel, and the Star Wars empire, the former two of which already delivered massive returns this summer with Iron Man 3 and Monsters University grossing $1.2 billion and $614 million worldwide. And Disney recognizes that its plan to produce fewer movies but make them all tentpoles is a high-risk/high reward business. “This branded tentpole strategy of ours, it’s 100 percent what we’re looking to do and what we want to be,” said Dave Hollis, Disney executive VP of distribution, following The Lone Ranger‘s disappointing opening weekend.

I never saw the movie – doesn’t appeal to me in the least. Did you? Was it that bad?
