She Is A Man Stealing Nobody


I'm in a bit of a quandary here. Perhaps you can help. I like Amber Heard. Ever since I referred to her as death a few years ago when she was pale and skinny and looked like the grim reaper and she sent me a lovely e-mail, I kind of have had a fond spot for her in my bacon loving heart. The fact that she drives muscle cars; enjoys drinks; and photobombs people in hotel lobbies doesn't hurt either. At the same time, you know I don't like homewreckers. I am a mutual hater. I hate both parties who do it. Plus, you know I love some feisty spirit and Vanessa Paradis is starting to share just how ticked off she was and is about Amber Heard. When asked what she thought of Amber, Vanessa said, "She is a man stealing nobody." Yikes. Well, I guess we know what happened in that relationship at least according to the view of Vanessa. So, for all of you huge Johnny Depp fans does this make you like him less? Does his love of Roman Polanski make you like him less? Do you just like him no matter what? I like Amber, but I really would like to hear some more from Vanessa too. Maybe this is her about to let us all in on her relationship with Johnny.

I can't like anyone who supports Roman Polanski. Plus Depp's idea of creativity is remaking everything I like and turning it into shit. No thanks!

pilly said...

God bless your bacon lovin heart upside down and backwards Enty!!!

dia papaya said...

Don't f**k with a French woman! She'll cut you down with one disapproving look, while she twists her Hermes scarf.

Liz said...

I never believed Johnny had an affair with Amber because she is a lesbian. I figured he had an affair with his publicist Robin Baum. I'm not sure anymore, but it seems there was a 3rd party involved.

For a man who kept his life private for so long, he's certainly using the media to trash his wife. I've lost a lot of respect for him be because of his underhanded publicity tactics.

Maui Mamita said...

I'm not a big JD fan to begin with. Back in the day he was handsome, but not buying and do not like the off screen dirty pirate swagger he's got going on now. With all of this new stuff about him it makes me like him even less. Why not leave her before?

There are tons of hardcore JD fans, I'm sure this is something they will overlook and say who hasn't cheated in Hollywood.


By the way...why is Vanessa throwing all the shade at Amber? It takes two, I'm sure she didnt force him to do it!

dia papaya said...

Can't wait to hear her dirt, but she'll never tell.

Lost love for Johnny years ago with all those stupid, bad, ridiculous Burton films. They ruined Alice and Charlie for a new generation of kiddies.

Lisa (not original) said...

Johnny Depp is the family wrecking nobody. No telling what he said to Amber.

angel said...

Johnny is nothing if not eccentric, and that's being somewhat kind in light of both his affection for Polanski and leaving Vanessa and his kids for someone else. I don't think Amber could have stolen Johnny from her if he wasn't ripe for stealing, and see this as yet another case of male middle age crisis behavior, but I totally understand Vanessa's thinking and feel very badly for her.

Liz said...

French people and a lot of European I've met are refreshingly direct. They do not mince words. I have some really close friends who live in Germany and some in Switzerland, who have straight up told certain people we've met in bars or gatherings that they're annoying or they're full of BS. It's not just the French!

redhotpepper said...

That man has the most disgusting teeth. Now I know why he never smiles. That is a deal breaker for me. I was always just kind of mediocre on him anyway.

Nellie said...

Johnny lost me forever by supporting Roman P.

I lost the shreds of affection I had for him when he let/helped V to take a beating from the tabloids. Worthless.

Brenda L said...

I don't even want to answer the question. Everything my life has stood for is in question now. LOL!

Redheat said...

I like Johnny, and respect his penchant for going to the edge. Not a fan of celebs that slobber all over Woody or Roman.

However, when it comes to relationships, there is no telling. Maybe his relationship had runs it course and he moved on? We can never know, so I try hard not to judge anyone. Having made that comment, I do wish people would learn to at least respect their partners enough to give them the option of sticking around if you want to get something on the side, or leave. Love is a fickle thing

Speaking of bacon, I found some bacon jerky last night. Mmmmm....

Lurky Loo said...

It's the Roman Polanski stuff that turned me off. I just can't get past it. The homewrecking stuff is par for the course with most celebs

Princess said...

Never been a huge JD fan, but I think in THIS situation, there was already trouble in the relationship. There are those men that will stray even when there are no problems, but with him (seemingly) faithful for 10+ years, I just don't believe a beautiful woman "stole" him. Doesn't excuse it any way. Grow some balls and end the relationship first.

discoflux said...

I have been over Johnny Depp for quite a few years now. Since the second PotC or thereabouts. He's slimy, dirty, boring, predictable, and a hack. I used to adore him back in the Gilbert Grape, Benny & Joon days. I can see how THAT Johnny could've fuck-talked a lesbian out of a relationship and into bed. But THIS Johnny?? Just... no.

MISCH said...

He's in my special folder along with Brad Pitt, I don't give either of them a pass.

Logansgirl said...

Amber is not a lesbian, she is bi and has said so on many occasions. She was on Top Gear UK a while back and even stated on the show.

timebob said...

It sounds like their relationship was under water for a long time. Johnny was sleeping around not just with Amber. But Amber is the more famous of the bunch so are people are going to care if she lashes out at a publicist or an actress. Actress wins hands down.

I feel bad for Vanessa but Amber isn't shit talking you. So lash out at the real villian. Johnny.

yodelay said...

Vanessa is totally right. Amber is nothing special and does not stand out in the least. I've seen the movies she's in, and I couldn't pick her out of a lineup. She's less than a dime a dozen. As for Johnny, anyone who cheats on their family is pathetic, him included. He fell out of my favor after those sad pirate movies (all after the first) and that terrible Alice movie. At this point, he's a hack.

luckylass said...

Amber is HOT! If my husband was rumored to be with her, I would be jealous as all hell. Even if they were in an open relationship. But I do think that JD has been hooking up all over the place.

Em Cue Em said...

My two cents:

To those who say, "But Amber's a lesbian!" - sexual preference is pretty subjective, and I know plenty of self-proclaimed lesbians AND heterosexuals who swing both ways. Saying "But she's a lesbian!" is the same as saying, about John Travolta, "But he's married!"

To those who say that Vanessa is throwing all her shade on Amber: This is just one quote, said apparently in response to a question. About Amber. No mention of Johnny because that wasn't the question. I would be willing to bet actual money she's doing PLENTY of shit-talking about him, too.

To those who say that the marriage was waning, so even if what he did was indeed wrong, Vanessa shouldn't be butt hurt: We have no idea how together or not they were, but they do have children and were together a very long time. If the woman wants to feel bitter about her relationship failing, let her. If the situation were reversed and Johnny were the publicly innocent party, nobody would blame him for being upset, even if they were on the outs.

anongkhla said...

For a lot of Vanessas, it's easier to blame the Ambers than it is the Johnnys. There's none of that pesky love and affection and closeness to cloud their anger when it comes to the Ambers.

I have no patience for fans, or anyone on the outside looking in, who throw all the blame onto one person (and usually it is the woman; yeah hello, misogyny) but I can understand why Vanessa would, certainly.

I'm a mutual hater, too, unless I know more about what went on and can actually see how one person was likely more to blame than the other.

And defense of Roman Polanski is always a much bigger deal to me than any affair.

AndrewBW said...

I got tired of Johnny Depp a long time ago.

BlisterPlease said...

I agree with those who have mentioned mid-life crisis. He seems to have been "off" for awhile.

strawberrygirl said...

So I'm assuming she won't be sending her a Christmas card?

And why do the men always get off Scot free in these situations?

rejectedcarebear said...

Forget this drama- FSP where did you find bacon jerky? I need this in my life.

Seachica said...

The way I see it, Depp is going back to his pre-Vanessa ways. He dated a series of high profile celebs (Winona Ryder, Kate Moss), drank too much and did too many drugs, and was happy to have the paparazzi document all of it. He only started looking like a good guy when he settled down with Vanessa.

Johnny Depp, meet your mid-life crisis.

Vanessa, consider yourself fortunate to have some other woman deal with his crap.

Vanessa's comment -- what was the intonation? She could be saying "She is a man stealing nobody" and be criticizing Depp for being a nobody (and commenting on her bisexuality), or "She is a man-stealing nobody" and be commenting on Amber's insignificance.

EmEyeKay said...

@strawberry girl: I don't think he's getting off scot-free... look at the comments. Many people are upset at him, not just us. Myself, I held him up above other celebs because of who he married (French pop star, not a Hollywood bimbo! So punk rock!) and now my opinion has changed (he went after the bimbo after all).

@Enty: Amber seems like a cool girl, you can still LIKE her, but you can't TRUST her.

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

She needs to blame her man also.

iknowpeople said...

Never a Depp fan...

RJ said...

Regardless of whether we are talking about Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp, or Joe Smith next door - I despise the idea that a man is "stolen"!!!! One can steal a tv, an iPad, a car. One cannot steal a man. One can tempt a man, but that that man has to yield to that temptation on his own accord. Yielding to temptation is a voluntary act. Cheaters cheat. They are not "stolen". Let's stop using that phrase along with "homewrecker".

FSP said...

@rejectedcarebear - Although I hate to admit it, I stopped into the local Walmart to pick up a few items, and just happened to run across it.

Ms Cool said...

Didn't everyone love him just like 6 months ago?

I don't know how I feel. If I hate actors because of their private life , then I won't like any of them. Johnny is exceptionally nice to his fans and that puts him pretty high in my book.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Meh, never been a Depp fan other than respecting his work as an actor. I find his behavior to be an affectation. Is anyone else old enough to remember when he would go on binges, tearing up hotel rooms, and basically act like any other douchebag actor? He wasn't "shy" in interviews back then, either. He's one of those like Jolie who has worked very skillfully to make over his image. Thing is, I'm not buying.

Amber said...

It's possible JD was telling Amber that he and Vanessa had split up. And if someone had told Amber, "No they're not split up!" He could very well likely have said, "They don't know what they're talking about. Vanessa and I are done."

It happens alllllllllllllllllllllll the time. People will say anything to get some trim.

rejectedcarebear said...

Thank you FSP, I have an unnatural urge to consume anything bacon related.

hotchacha said...

I've enjoyed many years of Johnny Depp, but he's gone a bit whackadoo in recent years. The films are copies of each other and he's looking waxier and less grounded every year. Clearly some sort of man-crisis. It would be nice to see him make an interesting film. Something fresh and new. Something other than a rerun starring a bunch of moody overgrown goths in Robert Smith hair, maybe a couple of headbands and waistcoats, and twice the legal limit of eyeliner.

Johnny, I've still got some love left for you even though that Polanski thing is some straight up bullshit. But if you insist on being oh-so-different, at least DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. You don't have to impersonate all your previous roles and then do them all again as Keith Richards. You're better than that. Buck up!

Maja. With a J. said...

I'm guessing someone asked her what she thinks about Amber Heard, and she told them. If the question had been "How do you feel about Johnny Depp now?", she might have said "He's a cheating piece of shit". Don't assume she is putting all the blame on the girl. Although I wouldn't be saying nice things about her either....*L*

jg610 said...

I think it takes a marriage in trouble for these things to happen. I don't think Amber was the cause of the split, just a result of it.
I hate the man-stealing thing too, but i also don't like the fact that a woman gets blamed and the big star doesn't. I think Johnny should get his teeth fixed and move on. If his relationship with Vanessa was good, this wouldn't be happening.
Cheating is never a good thing in my books - by either party.
Vanessa is just crying sour grapes.

SueRH said...

I'm sure he's a brilliant actor, but all of the roles he plays are creepy. That being said, I don't think a man can be "stolen" unless he wants to be. And instead of blaming the woman, who had no allegiance whatsoever to Vanessa, blame Johnny!

FSP said...

@rejectedcarebear - who doesn't?

Frufra said...

Here's where I stand:

Mutual hater also; home wrecker is a term I apply to the cheating spouse as well as the third party - they're both equally guilty. And sue me for saying so, but I do think it's a bigger deal when kids are involved.

I still like to watch Johnny on screen.

I think he's the new poster boy for the mid-life crisis. Thank God Mr. Frufra just bought a Corvette.

I like that Vanessa called Amber out when asked. High five, sister. Testify!

JoElla said...

Didn't Johnny throw the dirt first? Wasn't it in kneepads or Us magazine that he was blaming Vanessa and then BAM! TomKat divorce happened.

For Vanessa, I think that was one hell of a quote. And trust me, when she gets her barrings, Johnny will feel all the anger about this.

Danielle said...

Enty be sure and let us know if you wind up hearing anything from Amber again regarding this post :)
*ducks head* Still a Johnny fan here!

lazyday603 said...

The French understand better than any than any culture that love is a battlefield. In America that's just a cheesy song used in 13 Going on 30 for laughs. In France they live & breathe it. She lost the battle. Men stray when they're ready to go. That's not the new woman's responsibility.

Frufra said...

Ok, I'm back. Sorry, not trying to be difficult, Amber, but I must disagree with you, or at least throw in my two cents:

I don't care WHAT kind of bs a man is spinning. As a woman with a brain in your head, you know damn well when someone as ├╝ber famous as JD is involved with a woman for 14 years or whatever, and has two kids with said woman. She is equally culpable in this crime of the heart, despite whatever he might have told her. Frankly, I think your argument is an insult to Amber's intelligence.

He didn't trick her - she just didn't give a shit.

But I still love your posts, Amber. Just had to throw that out :-). (anita_mark told me to use smilies to ease the blow.)

nunaurbiz said...

Nobody can "steal" anybody. If someone in a relationship strays, there is something wrong in that relationship (at least as far as that one person goes). I do not cheat, but I've been cheated on. I never blamed the woman he cheated with; the blame lies with the cheater. (Although I did see karma bite the chick in the ass twice! Sweet!)

I like Johnny Depp as an actor. I don't have any illusions that we would have a personal relationship. Thus, him cheating doesn't affect my view of him as an actor.

I always caution my friends who, ahem, "steal" another woman's man that they should be prepared for him to cheat on her because he's obviously proven that he can't be loyal. He usually does and they usually are quite surprised and that always surprises me.

nunaurbiz said...

In simple terms, I believe that old saying: If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was.

MadLyb said...

I've been such a huge Depp fan - never watched, "21 Jump Street", but loved his Indies - "Ed Wood" is one of my favorite movies of all time. But the Polanski thing was a big disappointment. I think after the 2nd pirate movie, things started going to his head, and it's been downhill ever since. I liked him because of his commitment to Paradis and his kids. Now he's just like any other middle aged movie star. :( Yes, this has made me like him less.

As far as Amber Heard - It's clear that Depp has been cheating on Vanessa for awhile, and I feel for her. Perhaps it's a French thing - cheating is a thing many French women tolerate from their men and it doesn't mean there has to be a break up.

I like Heard for some reason, in spite of this, and that sort of bothers me. I think I like her because she strikes me as someone who refuses to live a lie. She probably gave him an ultimatum because he was.

tara17 said...

Relationships do end, and I also think it's weak and tacky to drag the other person along while shopping around for the next one.

I don't understand why anyone pays any attention to Roman Polanski. Roger Ebert wisely noted that if we start judging artists by their moral merits, we may find ourselves lacking art and entertainment. I still draw my viewership line quite below the Polanski limit, somewhere along the Charlie Sheen/Woody Allen grey area. Pedos are the lowest of humans. Their numbers need to atrophy and wither to zero. Any attention given to RP validates it's socially acceptable to do what he did.

shag said...

As someone who had pics of JD torn out of Bop/Teen Bop magazines hanging on my walls when I was in my younger days, I can say I am officially over my childhood crush.

Sweetiebird said...

For some reason, Johnny Depp, Alec Baldwin, and Robert Downey Jr. can never do wrong in my eyes, and I hate just about everyone. Maybe it's just because they're super talented and I want to f*** each of them, who knows?

Barton Fink said...

I don't believe in homewreckers. I believe in cheaters. Also, I doubt that life-long pair-bonding is going to be a human norm anytime in the near future, so ... people move on. Do so gracefully, is my advice.

gossblogger said...

A husband can't be stolen thought there are people especially actors/actresses who get a thrill
chasing married colleagues, out of boredom, as sport.

If you knowingly get involved with a person who is married especially with children and you don't stop, you are a homewrecker. . A person with any moral integrity would say call me when you get your divorce otherwise I am not interested. If everyone acted that way, then people unhappy in their marriages would have to do the right thing, either get divorced first or try to make their marriage work.

Boobs U said...

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors - Excellent point. He works sooo hrd on appearing quirky and eccentric. Um - he is trying too hard with the bracelets, necklaces, and clothes. It is manufactured and inauthentic. All while he makes blockbuster movies for tons of money. It kiiled my lady boner for sure.

Frufra said...

Barton - I agree, lifelong partnering isn't the norm. And it isn't always easy, even though I'm crazy about my partner. What it is is a choice you make. There have been points in our relationship where we only stayed together because of mutual respect for each other and respect for our history together.

It's hard damn work, to be honest. But it's what we both want and need. And I am mature enough to know that what works for me doesn't work for everyone.LOVE what you said about moving on gracefully. That is advice that, if widely heeded, would really change the world. And save lots of innocent kids from heartbreak.

Cancan said...

The only person it makes me like less is Vanessa. She ought not be faulting Amber; it's her husband who strayed. And the "nobody" crack? Honey, without being married to Johnny Depp you would be a yacht girl. (And I say this as someone who ecstatically bought the "Paradis" boots back in 1992.)

caralw said...

I like them both and it's sad it ended, especially for the kids. I have said it before and I will say it again... their ex-nanny described him as shy and her as a battle-axe. Maybe he had enough? Either way, I think this has been in the works for a long time. He paid her hundreds of millions, so I say it is a wash.

caralw said...

But the support of Roman Polanski? That's just gross. But I try not to judge celebrities based on comments they make. If I did, I'd have no movies to watch or music to listen to...

anne Anjoubault said...

if Vanessa didn't blame JD in public, I think it's because of their kids, she is very protective with them, and it's always said do not speak bad of our ex in front of the kids...

dunduhdunddun said...

I was starting to dislike Johnny Depp anyway. Now with what he did to Vanessa I REALLY dislike him. It is obvious he is having a major midlife crisis. Also his acting is atrocious lately. He is so caught up in being weird its pathetic. What would be really weird at this point Johnny is if you played a normal person!

RenoBlondee said...

I'm also over Johnny. Have been for awhile now.
Agree w/ those saying it's both, but mostly his since he was the married one.

Linnea said...

Still wonder if it was through JD Angie heard about her. :P

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

@sweetiebird: Yeah, but only one of those three is behaving well enough (and showering often enough...) that I'd want to hang out with them.

No, Amber shouldn't have gotten involved w/him in the first place (although I, too, would be interested to hear just want kind of BS line he fed her, because you know it was a good one), so she's definitely in the wrong there. However, since he was the one in a committed relationship with children and chose to start going after strange, he's the one at far greater fault, and the one most deserving of a (metaphorical at least) ass-kicking from Vanessa. If he really hadn't wanted to cheat, it wouldn't have mattered if he'd found Amber spread-eagled naked in his trailer waiting for him; he would have gotten all flustered and either walked out or told her to get dressed--he wouldn't have done anything. (Or he might have succumbed once, felt really guilty, and not done it again, temptation being what it is.) Vanessa's understandably pissed--even if things were already headed downhill, he could have at least broken w/her first--but between love/hate and not wanting to say anything due to their kids, she's talking about the other woman, not the schmuck who bailed on her so badly.

TL;DR version: Yes, Amber's at fault for getting involved w/him, but JD is the real skunk here--I'd say a 1/3 to 2/3 proportion of guilt sounds about right to me.

crila16 said...

See...now...this is what infuriates me. Amber isn't a man stealing nobody. She may be a nobody, but Johnny couldn't be stolen unless he wanted to be stolen. The blame should fall mostly on Johnny and Amber is a catalyst. I still don't know how Amber is able to look at her selfish, self-centered, aid to homewrecking face in the mirror...and I have absolutely no respect for someone who isn't compassionate towards the children or girlfriend's situation. Johnny and Amber will NOT last. It will maybe last a year...maybe a few, but it won't be til death do they part. It's a joke, and therefore wasn't worth what they're putting everyone through. Johnny disgusts me...as does Amber. I'm team Vanessa all the way.

Jennifer H. said...

I love his acting. I used to adore him. The Polanski thing did me in, too. Now every other nasty revelation just confirms and seals the deal: Depp is a typical Hollywood douchebag.

Turkish Taffy said...

I'm thinking that Amber Heard is an Eve Harrington-type climber who will do anything and anyone to get publicity. (No, I am not Vanessa), I've never seen her in any movie, but now she's a B-lister because of: 1. Her extremely public coming-out, 2. That Anjelina Jolie at the Oscars blind (I'll bet anything Amber is the source).
3. The Johnny Depp business.

moondancekat said...

As someone who was cheated on which resulted in the end of my 1st marriage, I can relate. Looking back on it now and realizing that I have learned a lot about myself since then would make me take a very different approach if it were to happen today. I simply would not want to be with someone who was interested in someone else. I don’t want to share my partner with another person.
I think generally that women are more likely to want to stay together with their partner until natural death. Not knowing the intimate details of this situation, I might be more inclined to see VP’s point. However, there needs to be civility for the sake of the kids. Bad mouthing AH publicly will not bring JD back. I also believe very strongly in “ho’s before bros,” meaning that women should not go after or allow themselves to be pursued by men that are in committed relationships. People get hurt and that’s not good.
It’s hard when your world gets turned upside down and your trust and feelings are deeply affected, but the best thing is to try to move on with your life and find some happiness with someone else. Life is too short to be bitter.
That being said, I admit that I enjoy watching JD movies.

billybob said...

I used to like Johnny but realised after a while that he wasn’t the quirky, weird sweetie that he likes to portray. He’s no different to anyone else who is paid too much for dressing up. He isn’t even a very good actor. It’s all smoke and mirrors. And I’m with gossblogger. If a person isn’t happy in a relationship then they should finish it before moving on to their next partner. And I was disgusted at Johnny’s support for Polanski the paedophile. Can’t see how anyone with young children would have an ounce of sympathy for the revolting little man.

Melissa said...

When he goes out in public, his strategically ripped and patched clothes, dirty hats, and jewelry look so contrived and carefully planned that it seems as if he's in costume. What is that damned bandanna he always has hanging out of his pocket used for anyway? He always seems to be playing a part- maybe everything I've ever thought about him is a lie (I used to love him back in the day). He is an actor, after all.

MrPresident said...

she is a nobody

SueRH said...

Alec Baldwin, really? He is a horrible human being.

OMAMA is BROKO said...

I stopped liking him YEARS ago. As soon as I read the report of the Franklin Credit scandal, after the whole jeff gannon/ johnnny gosch debacle. And the mention of depps buddy (HST) and his role in the whole thing (filming the snuff films of the kidnapped teens). Rocking horse, etc.

I lost respect for him then.

But it's no wonder he never wanted his kids pictures taken, as he said it was a violation. I'm sure he felt this as he surely knew of what was really out there (happening to kids, perversions wise).

But I do like Paradis.

__-__=__ said...

Another man abandoning his kids. And he will get a pass on this.

donner said...

I've enjoyed some of JD's movies - Edward S., Pirates, Sweeney Todd (!), Chocolat, but most of the others I've never seen him in, so I can't say...

as far as liking him as a person, I don't know him personally and we all know that perception is skewed in gossip. We never hear both sides, don't know behind the scenes. The only actor I refuse to watch is Tommy Cruise because I don't like knowingly giving money to the Co$ and I can't take him seriously anymore...I'll see JD movies if they look interesting, but I haven't seen Alice, Dark Shadows, Rum Diary, The Tourist, either...

jax said...

Samantha Geimer appreciates you keeping her name in the media despite publicly forgiving Polanski years ago.

Amber said...

Can we come up with a nickname for Amber Heard while we're saying nasty things about her? It's a little confusing... ;)

Jesse D said...

Oh there are most certainly homewreckers. Those of you denying their existence have never met them or fallen victim to their schemes. There are seriously women (and probably men, too) out there that see another woman's house/family/man and go after it. They are very, very good at what they do. And often successful.

Do I think this is what Amber Heard did to Vanessa Paradis? No, I do not. I do think, however, that this is not the first time he has strayed, and this is what VP meant by "nothing". Amber's just a face in the crowd to JD.

I was a huge JD fan, but he's got three strikes against him and I'm done. #1 - His defense of Roman Polanski. Disgusting. #2 - His comment on how relationships are temporary things and basically when something better comes along, take it. Gross. #3 - Letting the media trash his ex. Vile.

Done.

OMAMA is BROKO said...

hey Jax...if one of Sandusky's kids publicly forgave him would you say to let it go??

Just wondering

//sometimes you forgive people for your own sanity, it doesn't make their actions then right

Sylvia said...

I used to like Depp when he was in 21 Jump St. After that I started not to like him. People were making a big deal about him which I did not think he was all that. I also can't stand people that don't take showers or clean hygiene.

ruby said...

That's what u get for staying with a man 14 years without a ring. Doors always open to go, regardless of kids etc. it's much easier in a mans mind to leave a girlfriend than a wife. Always get the ring ladies! And if he takes more than 2 years to propose move on. Man is commitment phobic and doesn't matter if u have his kids.

Lola said...

I think that we don't know what happened and both are likely hurt by things that led the relationship to the end. When we look at celebrity breakups, we tend to sympathize with the one that speaks out the most (or first). Not knowing what really happened we tend to sympathize with what we know...or think we know.

As an example of this: Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Most of us sympathized with TC because he publicly proclaimed his hurt, "Nicole knows what she did," and we believed him...speculating she had been pregnant with Ewan McGregor's baby, etc.. Well 10 years later and we all realize there was a lot more to it than that and even though Nicole chose not to publicly speak didn't mean she didn't have huge grievances...or pain.

Even amongst us pions this happens...I know from personal divorce experience.

My point...we don't know; and one sound bite doesn't explain the complexities of a failed relationship.

Lola said...

@ruby, if someone really wants to leave, a ring is irrelevant.

And @Jesse, how do you "Stop" the media from doing anything? If he said, "Vanessa is a lovely woman and we just fell out of love," everyone would say he was making light of their time together and jut wanted a pass on his behavior.

And although it sounds as though I'm defending JD, I'm not. I don't know enough about their relationship and what happened to defend either one of them. Having said that, I suspect there is blame to lay at both of their feet; it may not be 50/50 but rarely is one person ENTIRELY at fault in these matters (and yes, I know that occasionally it does happen).

Nothing could make me like Johnny Depp less than Alice in Wonderland. Actually, Tim Burton in general.

I agree with the post about professional homewreckers. They do exist, but I think Dipp and his ex were already on the skids.

Dipp will spend this to make himself look good. He is the spinmaster.

I still blame him for River.

JD has exhausted me with his endless "quirky" characters that are all the same. To find out he's basically a prick in edgy clothing makes me dislike him. And the fact that his manner of dress and his constant need to be in blockbuster movies without a shred of growth as an actor makes me pity him. Almost.

If he cheated on his partner, he's scum. And anyone who supports Roman P is gross (I'm also looking at you, Natalie Portman, Woody Allen, Whoopi Goldberg).

@astrogirl
Me too and didn't he come out of that smelling like a gardenia? I wasn't the biggest River Phoenix fan, but Dipp was a part of his death.

Haha. I hope she is sensible enough to regret her words one day, but for now...good for her.

I lost it for JD when he supported RP. Lost it...plus, he's losing "it", in my opinion.

"For some reason, Johnny Depp, Alec Baldwin, and Robert Downey Jr. can never do wrong in my eyes, and I hate just about everyone. Maybe it's just because they're super talented and I want to f*** each of them, who knows?"

Sweetiebird, I love your illogical logic....and the fact that you hate just about everyone.

I think Amber Heard is too good for JD, myself. She's gorgeous and he's just this pretentious idiot who looks like he never takes a shower and I'm sure thinks of himself as some sort of great artiste. Gag...

As for Vanessa, I always thought she was JD's equally weird, pretentious soulmate.

Yep. He took my River away from me :(

Shit You Can't Buy said...

No idea what really went down between JD and VP, but do agree Amber Heard got most of her publicity for her private life. I can't name 1 show/movie she has been in (but maybe that's just me) but do know she is a lesbian (or bi most likely) because that was 'huge' news back then. She was presented as the new messiah of the lesbian community because she wasn't afraid to come out etc.
Everytime someone mentioned her it was always about her sexuality, not her movies/shows/talent.
Same with this JD-story, it gives her a lot of publicity, i find it all too convenient. If the rumors are true she will be mostly known as the girlfriend of JD, not so much for her talent (which I can't judge). Every article about her involved the words 'bi', 'lesbian', '(ex)girlfriend', 'Johnny Depp'.

Johnny used to be one of my favorites, some kind of infant terrible. But last couple of years it's been getting old. Yes JD, we know you are all eccentric etc. It's a bit too much now. It's like he is never gonna grow up and in the beginning that might have been cute and all, but now it's just silly and immature.

RDJ used to be all wacky too, but he has grown up and looks awesome while doing so (looks and behavior-wise xD). Right now RDJ is gaining respect with his actions, obvious talent, sense of humor and career choices. JD is becoming more and more a laughingstock.

I liked Johnny Depp just fine until his "photo shoots are like rape" comment.

NCJ said...

This is by magazine NOW gossip garbage. It's the same sh*t.
"X is said to have old" "The source Told" Do not know how
there are people who believe in such BS. Vanessa and Johnny, said nothing.There is no interview
or quotation of two anywhere.

This is the most sinister thing I've ever read about Depp ---> americanmafia.com/Feature_Articles_285.html

JD does have a sense of humor. Have a look at 'Life's Too Short' with Warwick Davis. Made by Ricky Gervais.

Melissa Marghella said...

johnny depp has a quote from a long time ago that says if you are in love with two people at the same time, choose the 2nd person because you wouldn't love them if you were really in love with the first person
