Johnny Depp's Thank-You to Wife Amber Heard Shows His Softer Side

johnny depp, amber heardIs notorious bad boy Johnny Depp really just a big old softie at heart? The 52-year-old actor sent out a seriously sentimental thank-you to his 29-year-old wife while accepting an award this weekend, and it certainly seems as if this once–wild man has found domestic bliss at last.


The honor in question was the Desert Palm Achievement Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, which was also attended by the likes of Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett, Bryan Cranston, and other Hollywood A-listers. But when Depp took the stage, his mind was only on his beloved spouse of nearly one year, Amber Heard -- and making sure that she felt appreciated.

“I also have to thank my wife Amber for putting up with me, for living with all these characters, which can’t be easy,” he said, referring of course to the variety of eccentric roles he's played.

“It’s hard for me -- it's got to be hard for her.”

Awww! Not too hard, though -- I mean, she is married to Johnny Depp, after all. How hard can it be? Still, it's lovely to see that Johnny is a devoted and loving husband. Especially because it was super sad when he split from longtime partner (and mother of his two children) Vanessa Paradis. They seemed like one of those couples that was going to last forever!

But hey, people grow apart ... and find new (ahem, younger) love interests. And as long as everybody involved is happy, then all's well that ends well!
