Following the shock news that he split from Vanessa Paradis, his partner of 14 years, Johnny Depp has been linked to bisexual Texan actress and former model, Amber Heard, his co-star on Rum Diaries. “When I first saw Amber, it was like seeing an old-time movie star like Lauren Bacall,” he reportedly said. Prior to this, Amber, 26, was known for being in a relationship with her photographer girlfriend Tasya van Ree -they came out publicly as a couple in 2010. She is said to be a regular visitor to the set of The Lone Ranger in New Mexico, where Johnny, 49, is currently filming, and some media outlets are even reporting that he bought her a horse so they can go riding together. Not that kind of riding folks, get your minds out of the gutter! The beautiful actress has made no secret of her admiration for the 49-year-old star, saying, “He lights up a room,” and “Johnny is a wonderful, special person.”
Having previously dated Kate Moss for four years, Johnny and Vanessa Paradis started dating after they met while filming The Ninth Gate in 1998. Vanessa is a French singer, best-known for her hit song, Joe Le Taxi, and she and Johnny have two children together, Lily-Rose Melody. 13, and John “Jack” Christopher, 10. They live between their homes in Paris, Los Angeles, the South of France and an island Johnny bought in The Bahamas. As you do!
We imagine speculation on the Deppster’s love life will continue to grow and grow as he has also been linked to actress Eva Green, his co-star on Dark Shadows, and his publicist Robin Baum, with whom he is said to have a flirty connection. Then again, we’d flirt with the gorgeous Johnny too if we were lucky enough to get within 100 feet of him!
