Their engagement came as a big surprise since Johnny Depp who just as recently as 2010 claimed that there wasn’t any reason to wed as it was just a piece of paper. At the time, Depp was involved with his long-time girlfriend French actress Vanessa Paradis.
Depp and Paradis were together for 14 years and have two children together. In 2010, Depp told Extra, “I never found myself needing that piece of paper. Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don’t need somebody to say, okay you’re married.”
Johnny Depp met his intended bride, Amber Heard on the set of their 2011 movie, “The Rum Diary.” He and Paradis ended their relationship in June 2012 with Depp and Heard going public with their relationship just a short time later.
Fans of Johnny Depp should worry about the actor being off the market just yet. In addition to his long time relationship with Paradis, Depp was briefly married once in his 20s, engaged to three women and have serious relationships with Winona Ryder and model Kate Moss.
Last July, Depp spoke with Rolling Stone and said, “Relationships are very difficult. Especially in the racket that I’m in because you’re constantly away or they’re away and so it’s hard.”
A source close to the couple revealed, “They couldn’t be happier to be engaged and excited to share the rest of their lives together.”
