Things are apparently getting serious between Johnny Depp and his rumored new squeeze, Amber Heard. Now the newly-single actor (he just split from partner of 14 years Vanessa Paradis) is showing his affection for “Rum Diaries” co-star Heard by buying her a horse.
That’s right. Depp bought Heard a horse so she can join him for rides near the set of his current project, “The Lone Ranger.” Johnny plays Tonto to Armie Hammer’s Lone Ranger in the movie, due sometime in 2013.
Depp, 49, and Heard, 26, have been linked for a while and now a source tells E! News the actress is a frequent visitor to Depp’s New Mexico set.
“When I first saw Amber, it was like seeing an old-time movie star like Lauren Bacall,” Depp allegedly has said of Heard. For her part, Heard has described her time working with Depp on “The Rum Diaries” as “the best experience of my life.”
