Johnny Depp's Views On Marriage As Amber Heard Engagement Rumours Continue

20 January 2014

Johnny Depp is said to be engaged to girlfriend of over a year Amber Heard after insiders confirmed they're set to marry after the actress appeared to conceal an engagement ring during a night out in Los Angeles recently. 

While the engagement has yet to be confirmed by either of the couple's reps, Johnny previously dismissed the idea of marriage claiming he "never" needed "that piece of paper".

The Lone Ranger star, who went public with the romance with his Rum Diary co-star last Summer at a Rolling Stones gig in Los Angeles, was with previous partner Vanessa Paradis for 14 years.

However explaining why the couple never married in an interview from 2010, Depp revealed he never needed the security of a marriage certificate.

"I never found myself needing that piece of paper," he told EXTRA in 2010. "Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don't need somebody to say, okay you're married... If Vanessa wanted to get hitched, why not... But the thing is, I'd be so scared of ruining her last name. She's got such a good last name."

Despite his view in 2010 it seems Depp is a serial proposer. He was previously married to Lori Anne Allison for two years in 1983 and also popped the question to ex-girlfriends actresses Jennifer Grey, Sherilyn Fenn and Winona Ryder. His longest relationship however was with Paradis, who he never proposed to.

Sources claimed the couple are definitely on for marriage though according to Us Weekly.

"The proposal happened a while ago," a source confirming the news told Us Weekly. "She just didn't wear the ring."

"Of course they couldn't be happier to be engaged and excited to share the rest of their lives together," another insider revealed to People magazine, adding that Heard has "told close friends" about the proposal.

"Amber has really taken well to the kids and really enjoys spending time with them. And she's even taken Lily shopping on her own for some bonding time,” the source continued.
