Johnny Depp is one of the most popular celebrities in Hollywood. Having started acting in the 80s, he has had a considerable number of ups and downs in both his career and personal life. In 2014, for example, he was reported to have experienced a lot of problems, especially caused by his immediate family, soon after indicating that he was going to tie the knot with Amber Heard. According to a report by Radar, his kids did not want a 28-year-old bisexual woman for a step-mom and could not warm up to her.
“Johnny wants his kids to be front and center when he and Amber tie the knot, but it seems they just can’t warm to her… Lily-Rose and Jack are very close to their mother (Vanessa Paradis) and they blame Amber for wrecking their family. Vanessa has even told Johnny that Lily-Rose said she wouldn’t feel comfortable as a bridesmaid.”
This was according to a source who spoke to the site. The prospect of getting more kids was also scary for the 51-year-old actor as he would be in his 70s when his new kids get to college, something that supposedly made him get cold feet in regards to walking down the aisle, not to mention the age gap, which seemingly made him a bit uncomfortable, especially in instances when he saw Amber hanging out with guys her age. The following is a statement from the site explaining this.
“Amber also wants a baby, and Johnny keeps thinking about being 70s by the time their kid goes to college. Then Johnny sees Amber with guys her own age and wonders if he’s doing the right thing.”
Away from his marital problems, Johnny Depp has in the last couple of years had to deal with another serious issue, and that is alcoholism. And now, his family and friends are said to be worried about his addiction, as it is spiralling out of control. According to a report by the National Enquirer, his wife, Amber Heard, is also seriously concerned.
Apparently, she has in the recent past done a lot to help him fight this and is alleged to have given him an ultimatum last year to choose between her and booze. This is as reported by Celebrity Dirty Laundry. However, she stuck with him even when he continued his habit. In 2014, he presented the Hollywood Film Awards while drunk. The following is the video.
Just last year, his addiction was said to have caused filming of Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 to be halted, after apparently undergoing treatment related to alcohol addiction. The following is an excerpt on this from the Courier Mail.
” UP TO 200 workers have been stood down from the set of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales while Johnny Depp undergoes treatment for alcohol problems in the US.”
“The producers of the $250 million blockbuster have had to dramatically scale back work on the Gold Coast sets as they wait for Depp to return to Australia to resume his starring role as Captain Jack Sparrow.”
