Just three days after the official announcement of his split, the Daily Mail is running a story about things heating up (coming out in the open) between Depp and his The Rum Diary costar, Amber Heard.
-- On a recent trip to Vegas where Depp was promoting Dark Shadows, Heard, who had no official business in the city of sin was seen de-boarding and boarding his private plane.
-- She has become a “regular visitor” on his set for the Lone Ranger, now filming in New Mexico.
-- And… wait for it, he bought her a horse. So they can ride together.
Case Closed: Nothing says smitten like a gift of a thoroughbred.
Speaking of good genes, Depp has confessed that, “When I first saw Amber, it was like seeing an old-time movie star like Lauren Bacall.”
And of him, Heard has done nothing but sing his praises. “He’s such a wonderful presence; he is enigmatic and compelling and a true artist, seriously intelligent and incredibly sensitive. “
She described working with him as “the best experience of my life.”
Personal life aside, Heard’s career is about to skyrocket (like private plane style) as she’s set to star in forthcoming Machete Kills by Robert Rodriguez, and alongside Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford in the thriller Paranoia.
As for Depp, he’s going to continue making movies, and being cool. Regardless of whose company he’s keeping.
