As Johnny Depp grows closer to his Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard, it’s being reported that the actor was spending time with other beautiful women as his 14 year union with Vanessa Paradis crumbled.
Johnny Depp, 49 , was forced to deny rumors that he was involved with his Dark Shadows co-star Eva Green who he shared a sensational, supernatural love scene with in the Tim Burton flop.
But a report suggests that Johnny Depp has struck up a more serious bond with his pretty publicist, Robin Baum.
“Robin and Johnny spend a lot of time together obviously because of work but their relationship seems to be getting much closer than just business,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
“Robin is twice divorced and a mom but she and Johnny really seem to have some kind of crazy connection that goes way beyond a professional level.
“They travel a lot together for work and get to spend a lot of time together and they definitely have a total flirty vibe between them. I would put money on them having more than just a friendly relationship.”
They added that Johnny Depp’s partner Vanessa Paradis was aware of the close relationship between her partner and Robin Baum… and wasn’t happy about it.
“She knew that Johnny and Robin were together a lot and she didn’t like it, but there was nothing she could do because it was a working relationship she was told,” the source said.
But currently, bisexual actress Amber Heard, 26, is a “regular visitor” to the New Mexico set of The Lone Ranger where Johnny Depp is currently filming.
And Johnny Depp, who made an official announcement that he had split from partner of 14 years Vanessa Paradis on Tuesday, is even said to have bought Amber Heard a horse so they can ride together, according to a report in Globe magazine.
A source claims Johnny Depp is smitten by Amber Heard, and reportedly said: “When I first saw Amber, it was like seeing an old-time movie star like Lauren Bacall.”
Amber Heard who was born in Austin, Texas, previously worked as a model and before starring in The Rum Diary alongside Johnny Depp had had small roles in a number of films.
She attended a Catholic school in Austin until her junior year, then the ambitious teen left to pursue a career in Hollywood.
Amber Heard was active in her school’s drama department and appeared in local commercials and campaigns.
While she was raised a Catholic, after the death of her best friend died in a car crash Amber Heard declared herself an atheist.
Amber Heard, 26, has described her role as Johnny Depp’s love interest in the film, The Rum Diary, as “the best experience of my life”.
She gushed to magazine Dazed about Johnny Depp: “He’s such a wonderful presence; he is enigmatic and compelling and a true artist, seriously intelligent and incredibly sensitive.
“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.”
Amber Heard’s profile is set to rise as she recently joined the case of thriller Paranoia as the female lead alongside Gary Oldman, Harrison Ford, and Liam Hemsworth.
She also recently landed a role as an assassin in the sequel Machete Kills.
Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp had not been pictured together in public for months, but the Dark Shadows star insisted last month that there was no truth to talk of a split.
Despite Johnny Depp’s denials, a number of publications carried pictures and reports that he and Amber Heard enjoyed a trip together to Las Vegas on a private plane.
