Johnny Depp, 50, has arguably become one of the most famous celebrity sugar daddies, thanks to his May-December relationship with 27-year-old actress Amber Heard. Although many have speculated that this celebrity couple won’t last because she’s just using him for his fame and fortune, Depp is trying to prove that he’s in it for the long haul.
The actor is reportedly looking for a house for both of them near East London, where Heard is filming her next movie, just so that he can be closer to her while she’s working. Depp will also be doing a film in London, but on the other side of town. Nonetheless, he’s taking full advantage of finally getting to work in the same city. According to a source, he’s doing the “gentlemanly thing” and settling down closer to where she is, despite it being an inconvenient commute for him.
Heard also seems to be putting in the effort. She was recently spotted accompanying her older man to a tribute event for the Ramones’ guitarist, Johnny Ramone. When the punk band was at their peak in the 70s, Heard wasn’t even born yet.
Depp and Heard’s May-December relationship has received quite a bit of scrutiny, since it was rumored that they started dating while he was still involved with his longtime girlfriend and the mother of his kids, Vanessa Paradis. It was also rumored that Heard dumped her girlfriend (Heard is an open bisexual) to be with Depp. But despite the rumors, Heard refuses to address their relationship directly. She has skirted around the topic, though. “Going into relationships is just as difficult as coming out of them. I have never been in the situation where the two have overlapped. I can’t imagine how difficult that would be,” she said in an interview with The Edit. She also admitted that there’s a difference between hiding and being private about her life. “I watched people around me succumb to hiding and hiding denotes shame,” she said, adding, “I feel, and felt, zero shame. We all love who we love; we don’t choose it.”
What do you think: Is Johnny Depp investing too much in his relationship with Amber Heard, or are they serious about each other?
