Johnny Depp and Amber Heard enjoyed a date night in L.A. on Wednesday, May 22, and were joined by a special musical guest: Keith Richards.
Johnny, 49, and Amber, 27, were photographed leaving Ago restaurant with the 69-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist. Johnny and Keith were both dressed in casual rock star attire and dark sunglasses. Heard wore a white and beige dress, but accessorized with bright red lipstick. (Depp and Richards have been longtime friends. The actor even based his 2003 Pirates of the Caribbean character, Captain Jack Sparrow, on the rocker.)
Many celebrities have unlikely hobbies, like our beloved Johnny, who collects a lot of Barbies.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star has a collection of limited edition BARBIES – yes, you read that right.
He has also got dolls based on Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child, the High School Musical cast and even a Lindsay Lohan figure with an ankle tag.
The actor also likes playing with the dolls, previously admitting: “I’ve played with a lot of Barbies and Kens for my kids. It’s actually one of the things I’m good at.”
Showing some love to his loyal followers, Johnny Depp held an impromptu photo and autograph session outside the set of his new film “Transcendence” in Los Angeles on May 09.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” hunk had spent a long day shooting scenes for the flick but still found the energy to engage his fans, sporting a brown leather jacket with distressed jeans and a driving cap.
Coming up this weekend, Johnny will be in New Mexico for additional work on the movie, and it seems his costar Cory Hardrict’s wife Tia Mowry will be making an appearance.
Mowry gushed that meeting Depp will be the best Mother’s Day gift ever- “Last year, I was out of town promoting my book ‘Oh Baby’ so I didn’t get to do much. This year my husband is actually shooting a movie in New Mexico with Johnny Depp, so guess where we will be? We will be in New Mexico with Johnny Depp.”

Johnny Depp has joked a horse planned to attack him while filming his latest movie. The actor had a scary experience while filming his latest movie when he narrowly avoided getting trampled by a horse. The star thinks the animal might have had its sights set on him all along.
“I think the horse had it in for me!” he laughed to the UK edition of OK! magazine.
“I saw everything very clearly, which was the horse’s incredibly muscular front legs moving at an obviously very dangerous speed, and I was still holding on to the mane like an idiot trying to get back up. So it’s like one must make a decision, do I go down, do I hit the deck on my own, or do I wait for a hoof to split my face in two? So I chose both, to fall on my own.”
That atrocious final chapter aside, people love them some Jack Sparrow. (Especially Michael Bolton!) They love the gravely voice, the spacey demeanor, the marionette-like posture. And although each of these elements was birthed by Johnny Depp, in the role that turned him from cult favorite to omnipresent movie star, it seems as though a few people are willing to see them carried out by another Hollywood icon. An equally beloved, perhaps more respected, thespian — Kermit the Frog. With The Muppets… Again! brewing for 2014, some fans of Jim Henson’s felt family were inspired to put together a crossover video between the 1996 picture Muppet treasure Island, and Depp’s ongoing franchise Pirates of the Caribbean.
In the video, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, and Tim Curry all inhabit (in a rather impressive dub job) the Pirates characters, channeling fandom of both entertaining realms. Check out the parody trailer below.
The 49-year-old actor has been dating Amber on and off since he separated from his long-term partner, Vanessa Paradis, in June 2012, and forked out on a $16 million ranch in Nashville, Tennessee, in December as a love nest for his new girlfriend.
A source told The Sun newspaper:
“Johnny’s told Amber he wants to marry her and have children after introducing her to his kids [by Vanessa] Lily Rose and Jack.
“He’s bought her another horse [for the ranch] so the one he got her last year can breed.”
It was reported that bisexual Amber had dumped Johnny in January because she was tired of his moods, but the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ star won her back by showering her with expensive gifts. The 27-year-old blonde – who was spotted with Johnny at a Rolling Stones concert in Los Angeles over the weekend – is determined to give the relationship another go and is hoping to spend more time with his children.
The insider added:
“She’s smitten with him but won’t take any nonsense. She wants him to calm the late nights and whisky drinking before they plan a wedding.
“They’re going to stay with the kids at his house in Plan de la Tour in the south of France, so it’s full steam ahead again.”
Tia Mowry’s husband is giving her the greatest gift of all this Mother’s Day – the chance to meet Johnny Depp! At the launch event for her new Milky product with twin sister Tamera at the A Pea in the Pod store in Beverly Hills on Thursday, May 2, the mother of 22-month-old son Cree shared with Us Weekly how she’ll be celebrating the holiday this year.
“Last year, I was out of town promoting my book Oh Baby so I didn’t get to do much. This year my husband is actually shooting a movie in New Mexico with Johnny Depp, so guess where we will be? We will be in New Mexico with Johnny Depp,” she told Us about husband Cory Hardrict’s role in the action film Transcendence. “I want to meet him because I’ve never met him before.”
“We’ll just get on a plane, go hang out, have dinner and maybe have a nice spa day,” she said of the trip. “I’ll probably get to meet him. I’m so excited about that. I’m very proud of my husband.”
The on-again, off again pair Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were spotted together and holding hands at a Rolling Stones surprise concert in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Photographers snapped the couple wading through the crowd, fingers interlaced. Last year, Depp split with long-time partner Vanessa Paradis after 14 years together. It was immediately speculated he was with Heard, who co-starred with Depp in The Rum Diary.
Heard split with girlfriend Tasya van Ree last June, and was not rumored to be dating anyone other than Depp.
The two stars refuse to comment on their relationship, keeping fans and media alike guessing. They also have plenty of time to spend together: Johnny’s Lone Ranger is in post production, and Heard is back in the states after filming scenes in Europe for “Three Days to Kill.”
A lot of people are worried and feeling slightly uneasy at the thought of Johnny Depp — regardless of his acting chops and charisma — playing a Native American without actually being one (check him out above)!
Though, to be fair, he IS an honorary member of the Comanche tribe.
And Armie Hammer (AKA The Lone Ranger himself) says that it’s totally cool because he talked to a few Native Americans and they said they were fine with it!
Honestly, if we were a Native American actor and had to watch a tailored-role go to a famous white guy, we might be a little upset too (on top of whether or not Depp’s portrayal is actually offensive!)! Here’s what he said about it being white people who actually have the problem with Tonto:
“They were nothing but excited about it. They loved it — they’re thrilled. It’s so funny, because every Native American we talked to was like, ‘This is awesome! I’m so excited.’ And every white person we talked to was like, ‘How dare you cast a non-Native American?’ It’s like, the white people are the one who have the problem, but the Indians — the Native Americans — are like, ‘This is great. We love it.’”
I uploaded 10 LQ pictures of Johnny during the “Lone Ranger” Fan Event and Global Trailer Launch in Las Vegas on April 17. Enjoy!
