That Was Fast! Johnny Depp is Now Dating a Former Co-Star — And Bought Her a Horse
Yo ho ho and a Rum Diary co-star. Us Weekly is reporting that Johnny Depp is dating actress Amber Heard, who starred opposite him in last year's film, The Rum Diary. This comes only a little more than a week after it was announced that Johnny was splitting from longtime love Vanessa Paradis, with whom he was with for 14 years and has two kids. That's right — he may be starring in the upcoming film version of The Lone Ranger, but Johnny is no lone wolf.
Johnny, 49, met Amber, 26 (!), on the set of Rum Diary back in 2009, and apparently the two started sleeping together last year while promoting the film. At that time, Johnny and Vanessa were apparently going through a rough patch and had cooled off.

And Johnny has made it pretty clear that he's fond of Amber, as he actually bought her a horse this spring! (Apparently, Johnny Depp doesn't do flowers-and-chocolates.) A note to all the other guys out there: When it comes to giving a gift to your girlfriends, the bar has been raised.
Amber is probably best known for playing Seth Rogen's high school-aged girlfriend in Pineapple Express, and she co-starred in last year's flop Drive Angry with Nicolas Cage (although using the words "Nicolas Cage" and "flop" in the same sentence is kinda redundant, dontcha think?). Amber is bisexual, having recently split with her girlfriend Tasya van Ree.
Long story short, it sounds like Johnny Depp is having a very merry un-birthday.
