Rumors are circulating that Johnny Depp’s split from Vanessa Paradis has a lot to do with his stunning Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard. While she’s been mum on the subject, she looked pretty depressed in public after Paradis called her a “man-stealing nobody.”
Though Depp and Heard themselves haven’t said one way or another whether or not they’re dating, reports seem pretty certain – so does Johnny Depp’s jilted ex, Vanessa Paradis. Despite walking away with nearly half of Depp’s fortune, Paradis still (rightly) has an axe to grind with Heard, and she has all the power of the press behind her, casting Heard as a homewrecker.
According to sources, Paradis blames Heard for the break-up, calling her “a man-stealing, two-bit nobody.” Paradis has also said that she won’t let the 26-year-old anywhere near her two children, reports Gather.
Heard looks like all the negative attention is getting to her. She stepped out yesterday in Burbank, California, looking pretty depressed and down-trodden, reports the Daily Mail. This seems to lend credence to the rumors that Heard and Depp are indeed an item – additionally, she is reported to be a regular in New Mexico on the set of Depp’s The Lone Ranger, and the two actors have nothing but gushing words for each other. “When I first saw Amber, it was like seeing an old-time movie star like Lauren Bacall,” Depp reportedly said of his first meet with the actress.
For her part, Heard described working with Depp on The Rum Diary as “the best experience of my life,” adding of Depp that, “He’s such a wonderful presence; he is enigmatic and compelling and a true artist, seriously intelligent and incredibly sensitive,” continuing, “Everybody on set respects and likes him, which says a lot about an actor. It’s a grueling job at times and the stress level that everybody feels in the industry is intense – but it doesn’t affect Johnny. It seems like he has time to look everybody in the eye and I like that, it was wonderful to see.”
Following early claims, a source confirmed that Depp and Heard are “100 per cent dating,” adding, “He treats her really well.”
Heard might be getting all the negative press, but let’s not forget that the true villain in this scenario is Depp. No matter how strong the temptress, he’s the one who chose to leave. I think some choose to forget purposefully.
