Speaking at length for the first time about his feelings for his fiancée Amber Heard, Johnny Depp called her “a wonderful girl” and said she was “very good for me”.
In an interview with Today‘s Savannah Guthrie, set to air on Friday, he said of the blonde actress: “She’s sharp as a tack. A southern belle and sweet as can be, and very good for me.”
Johnny was still wearing Amber’s diamond engagement ring, and when Savannah pointed it out and told him: “I think you look engaged,” he clicked his fingers.
In an interview with David Letterman aired on Thursday, the star mentioned the sparkler again, saying: “it was too big for my girl”.
He also told the legendary interviewer that he “gets along well” with his future father-in-law.
Johnny, 50, said that Amber’s father David is “about the closest thing to Hunter S. Thompson I’ve ever met”, referring to the excentric and wild author who wrote books The Rum Diares and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas on which Johnny’s films are based.
