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.'”

Finally, the new trailer for Johnny’s upcoming movie “The Lone Ranger” was revealed. Check it out!
As Katey noted in her editorial, it’s getting difficult to tell Wally Pfister’s “Transcendence” and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar apart. Not only did the director of the former work as the latter’s director of photography for years, they’ve even begun to show a similar taste in actors, with Morgan Freeman – a veteran of Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy – signing on for a part in Transcendence last week. But the connections don’t end there.
Latino-Review has learned from a source that Cillian Murphy, who worked with Pfister as a DP on all three of Nolan’s Batman movies as well as Inception, has signed on to play one of the three male leads in Transcendence. The Irish actor joins what is already a truly all-star cast that not only includes Freeman, but Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, and Kate Mara as well. While larger details about the plot are being kept under wraps, it’s been said that the movie is about a group of scientists studying the theory of the technological singularity – the moment where technology becomes intelligent and able to think on its own. Newcomer Jack Paglen wrote the script for the film, which is scheduled to start production this month.
Murphy had a pretty decent year in 2012, featured in not only Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, but the UK drama Broken (which is still making its way around the festival circuit) and the Sundance selection Red Lights. He recently worked alongside Jennifer Connelly and Melanie Laurent in writer/director Claudia Llosa’s Cry/Fly, which isn’t expected out until next year.
I found a new poster for Johnny’s upcoming movie “The Lone Ranger“. This is my favorite poster so far. Feel free to check it out.

Actress Holly Robinson Peete got her breakout role when she was cast as Officer Judy Hoffs on the late 80s TV show “21 Jump Street“. That show was also a hit for Johnny Depp. On HuffPost Live Friday, Peete admitted that some flirting did go on between the two, but she said she would never actually date him. Her reason? Her mother.
Johnny Depp has collaborated with his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Paradis on a new song.
The American actor split from the French singer-and-actress in 2012 after a 14-year romance. Neither has spoken about the reasons for the break-up and it’s thought they have remained civil for the sake of their children Lily-Rose and Jack.
The strength of their friendship has now been revealed, with the news Johnny appears on Vanessa’s new record.
Her album “Love Songs” is due out next month and includes the track New Year. Credits on the LP state the song is the work of Vanessa, Johnny and their daughter, as well as Ruth Ellsworth Carter.
At the moment there is no further information about the track and when it was recorded is unknown.
Johnny Depp is bringing “The Lone Ranger” to Las Vegas during CinemaCon next month.
Disney announced last week that Johnny, co-star Armie Hammer, director Gore Verbinski, and producer Jerry Bruckheimer will discuss the movie on April 17 after showing 20 minutes of exclusive footage to 400 fans at the convention.
Can’t make it to Vegas? They will be live streaming the event on Yahoo Movies and Livestream. Fans around the world can also submit questions through Twitter using the hashtag #LoneRanger for the event.
The Q & A session will take place at the AMC Town Square 18 in Las Vegas at 1 p.m. PT.
