Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are engaged, and I know what you're thinking: They're not going to get boring, are they?
Depp, in particular, has always marched to the beat of his own drummer — he and former partner Vanessa Paradis were together for 14 years and had two children without getting married, and his twitchy, eyeliner-laden self is the whole reason those pirate movies were so big. Heard, meanwhile, is fond of giving blunt, unapologetic interviews about her bisexuality.
Not to worry: There are no picket fences or traditional gender roles in sight for these two. Case in point: the engagement ring. Johnny's engagement ring. While promoting a film in Beijing, Depp fielded a question about whether they were engaged by flaunting a diamond ring on his ring finger. “The fact that I’m wearing a chick’s ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle,” he said, according to Page Six.
Well! That is genuinely quite cool. Why should girls be the only ones who get to sparkle when there are wedding bells in the air?
