Johnny Depp indirectly confirmed his engagement to model and actress Amber Heard at a press conference at the Grand Hyatt in Beijing, China for his upcoming movie Transcendence.
Rumors of their engagement have been floating for a while, and the actor was finally asked about it. “The fact that I’m wearing a chick’s ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle,” he replied. According to sources, Depp is wearing the diamond ring, since it is too big for Heard’s finger. Depp showed off the large ring and his tattoos during the press conference.

Depp, 50, separated from French model and actress Vanessa Paradis in 2012. They were together for 14 years and have two children together – Lily-Rose and Jack.
Depp met Heard, 27, while filming the movie The Rum Diary, wherein Heard plays his character’s love interest. They began dating in 2012, and there were already rumors of their engagement by December 2013.
In another comment, Depp said, “I think that I would be better at making women’s shoes than I would be at wedding planning, I can’t plan anything. I’m really bad at that stuff,” referring to his engagement to Heard.
In the science fiction drama film Transcendence, Depp plays a scientist who is terminally ill and downloads his consciousness into a computer. The movie also stars Morgan Freeman and Rebecca Hall. Depp said that most of the technology in the film already exists and that the kind of artificial intelligence tackled in the film may not be too far away.
Transcendence hits theaters on April 18 in China and the U.S. China will be the only international country Depp will be visiting to promote the film, as it is considered the second biggest box office after the U.S./Canada. The movie will be shown in 3D, which is a format that is popular choice among the audiences in China.
