Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have been rumored to be dating since the release of their 2011 film The Rum Diary, and although they’ve been photographed together by paparazzi, the celebrity couple finally made one of their first public appearances together as an actual couple at a star-studded charity gala in L.A.
Even though Depp entered through a back door and Heard dodged questions on the red carpet, the celebrity couple did pose for pictures together inside and reportedly looked “so in love.” They were spotted holding hands, cuddling, and whispering in each other’s ears all night.
Despite dating for over a year now, both Depp and Heard have both remained tightlipped on their May-December relationship, perhaps because they reportedly started seeing each other while Depp was still in a long-term relationship with his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his kids, Vanessa Paradis. In a recent interview with Flare magazine, Heard made it clear that the reason she isn’t interested in dishing on her private life, regardless of who she’s dating, is because she wants to be regarded as an “artist” and not a “celebrity.”
What do you think: Is Amber Heard just using Johnny Depp to advance her own acting career?
