Johnny Depp professes love for Amber Heard: She's good for me

Johnny Depp is one smitten man.

The 50-year-old actor hasn't been able to resist gushing about his soon-to-be-bride, Amber Heard, while promoting his forthcoming sci-fi movie, "Transcendence."

While speaking with "Today's" Savannah Guthrie, Depp opened up about his recent engagement, which both stars had previously been super private about.

"She's wonderful," Depp said of Heard, 27. "She's sharp as a tack. A Southern belle and as sweet as can be."

It turns out Heard, who co-starred with the actor in "The Rum Diary," is "very good for me," Depp said.

Depp and Heard were first spotted together in 2012, following the actor's split from his prior partner of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis. (Depp and Paradis also have two children together.) The couple tried to keep their romance quiet by avoiding any obvious PDA, but at Heard's "Three Days to Kill" movie premiere in February it appeared the cat was completely out of the bag.

Heard's engagement ring, which she'd previously tried and failed to conceal, was on full display, and so was the couple's very public affection.

Depp, ever the non-traditionalist, is also wearing a huge sparkler.

"I do, I have a female engagement ring," he told David Letterman on "The Late Show" Thursday.


"It was too big for my girl," he explained. "So I put it on. She has the other one that fits."

The bauble is pretty hard to miss, but Depp said he doesn't get a lot of reaction. "I think people are scared to comment," he said with a laugh. "'Why is a grown man wearing a woman's engagement ring?'"

    Sorry, he wasn't married to the mother of his children. Johnny Depp had said in a number of interviews that he would marry her (Vanessa Paradis) if she wanted to get married. She, obviously, did not want to. So he moved on to someone who will commit to him.

    I had so much respect for him as an actor, father and spouse. Shame to see he cashed in the mother of his children for a little girl that's probably using him as a launchpad.

    Still an amazing actor. No kudos for the rest of it, though.
