Johnny Depp is putting his trademark quirky spin on the iconic role of Tonto in the upcoming summer blockbuster The Lone Ranger. So ahead of its July 3 release, Johnny sat down for a rather revealing interview with Rolling Stone, and we've pulled the most entertaining insights from the Hollywood rebel — including his "commando" situation!
It's been almost exactly one year since Johnny Depp's split from Vanessa Paradis was confirmed in June 2012 following months of speculation that their 14-year relationship was in trouble. Shortly after, Vanessa spoke rather cryptically to Harper's Bazaar, saying, "Nothing is ever for sure, but when something in love doesn't work from the beginning, it's never going to work. Don't push it." Johnny, who has since been linked to Amber Heard, has kept quiet on the breakup until now. He's gearing up for the July release of Lone Ranger and sat down with Rolling Stone to talk about the project but also touched on his personal life.
- On the aftermath of his split from Vanessa: "The last couple years have been a bit bumpy. At times, certainly unpleasant, but that's the nature of breakups, I guess, especially when there are kiddies involved."
- On relationships: "Relationships are very difficult. Especially in the racket that I'm in because you're constantly away or they're away and so it's hard. It wasn't easy on her. It wasn't easy on me. It wasn't easy on the kids. So, yeah. The trajectory of that relationship — you play it out until it goes, one thing leads to another. So for whatever reason that ceases, it doesn't stop the fact that you care for that person, and they're the mother of your kids, and you'll always know each other, and you're always gonna be in each other's lives because of those kids. You might as well make the best of it."

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard had a late night in LA on Tuesday, when they dined out at Ago in West Hollywood with Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood. Johnny and Amber arrived in the same car, and though they headed inside separately, Johnny stuck close behind Amber as the group left the restaurant following their meal. The couple, who are rumored to have gotten together while working on 2011's The Rum Diary, have met up with the Rolling Stones members before — Johnny and Amber showed PDA at a secret Stones show in April.
Johnny's stationed on the West Coast while he films Transcendence, but he's also juggling work for The Lone Ranger. He and Armie Hammer took their project to CinemaCon at the beginning of April and will have more press to do before it hits theaters in July.
Johnny Depp popped up on the set of Transcendence in LA yesterday. He sported a pair of Dita sunglasses and was joined by costar Rebecca Hall as well as a body double for the day of shooting. The sci-fi thriller also stars Morgan Freeman and Kate Mara and focuses on a pair of computer scientists fighting against an anti-technology organization. Johnny has been busy promoting his other film The Lone Ranger with Armie Hammer as well. The two teamed up to release a trailer for the movie during CinemaCon in Las Vegas earlier this month.
Between his big-screen projects, Johnny has been making time for fun — and a little flirting. He attended a secret Rolling Stones concert with his The Rum Diary costar Amber Heard over the weekend, and the two were spotted holding hands during the show before leaving together in a black SUV. Johnny and Amber's PDA marks the first time they've put their romantic connection in the spotlight, though they were rumored to have gotten close while working on 2011's The Rum Diary.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were photographed showing PDA Saturday night as they left a secret Rolling Stones show at LA's Echoplex. Johnny and Amber costarred in the 2011 film The Rum Diary but have kept any possible romance out of the spotlight until now. Amber was able to mingle with the Stones, thanks to Johnny's longtime friendship with Keith Richards. Johnny and Amber were among the 700 people who saw the Stones after the band announced the show on Twitter earlier in the afternoon.
Amber and Johnny were just two of many celebrity guests last night. Also out to see Keith, Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts, and Ron Wood do their thing were Gwen Stefani, Mary-Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen, Owen Wilson, and Maria Shriver. Bruce Willis, who has a vacation home near Keith at Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos, also attended with his wife, Emma Heming. Stones wives and girlfriends Patti Hansen and L'Wren Scott and 65-year-old Ron's wife of four months, 35-year-old Sally Humphreys, were there, too. The Stones got in last night's show before kicking off their "50 & Counting" world tour this Friday at LA's Staples Center.
Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer launched a new trailer for their film, The Lone Ranger, at CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday. The two actors were joined by director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer as they discussed the upcoming flick, which hits theaters on July 3, in front of a group of theater owners. Johnny has been ramping up his appearances as he prepares for the huge promotional push for his latest project. He popped up last month at the Kids' Choice Awards and will undoubtedly have plenty of other appearance opportunities as he heads into the Summer blockbuster season. Stay tuned for our interview with Armie and Gore, where they discuss Johnny as a true bohemian and the highly anticipated new movie.
