With their one year wedding anniversary approaching, Johnny Depp has paid tribute to his wife Amber Heard for ‘putting up’ with him. The 52-year-old actor thanked his 29-year-old wife as he was honoured with the Desert Palm Achievement Award, at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Sunday night.
Johnny Depp has thanked wife Amber Heard for ‘putting up’ with him.
"I also have to thank my wife Amber for putting up with me, for living with all these characters, which can't be easy. It's hard for me - it's got to be hard for her,” the Black Mass actor said. Depp and Heard met on the set of 2011 film The Rum Diary and were married last February.

Director Tom Hooper deploys the same style he used in The King's Speech for this much darker story about the first man to undergo gender-reassignment surgery. It's an odd mix of rather too-pretty visuals with an edgy series of events that perhaps demands a lot more raw honesty. But the story is fascinating, and the cast is excellent, delivering astute, introspective performances that reveal the much earthier narrative under the lovely surface.
It opens in 1926 Copenhagen, where husband and wife painters Einar and Gerda Wegener (Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander) are hoping to start a family as they develop their careers. One day, Gerda talks Einar into putting on a dress to pose for one of her paintings, and the experience triggers long-suppressed yearnings from his childhood. Gerda and their friend Ulla (Amber Heard) encourage him to attend a party in drag, and Lili Elbe is born, Einar's female alter ego who immediately attracts the attention of a lovelorn man (Ben Whishaw). After they move to Paris, they find another friend in Gerda's agent Hans (Matthias Schoenaerts), who was Einar's childhood pal. But while the French doctors think Einar is simply crazy, Gerda sticks by him as he decides to undergo a radical experimental surgery offered by a doctor (Sebastian Koch) in Germany.
Hooper's usual directorial flourishes include off-centre compositions, painterly sets and emotive close-ups, which bring out the internal struggles of the characters in beautiful ways. But this also has a tendency to simplify a story that is seriously complex. By emphasising the social conflicts and relational melodrama, the entire movie begins to feel rather thin, never quite grappling with the more provocative or disturbing aspects of the issues at hand. There are hints of what might have given the film an edgier kick, such as a moment of Hitchcockian obsession or the shifting of power between the male and female characters.

Actress Amber Heard Was Delighted With How Graceful She Was After Learning Ballet - Until Friends Relentlessly Mocked Her "Claw Hands".
The 29-year-old star learnt how to dance for her role in The Danish Girl, in which she plays professional ballet star Ulla. The routines were tough, as she didn't have long to master them, but Amber was pretty sure she'd done a good job - until she gave her pals some footage to watch.
"I send videos to my friends so I get encouragement and look for their support and everyone shoots back, 'What's with the claw hands?''" she laughed to talk show host James Corden.
"I look and I realise that all the stress and fear of performing had funnelled out through one thing I hadn't yet mastered."

Actor Eddie Redmayne Felt "Embarrassed" During His Nude Scene In The Danish Girl, And Admits He Fears Questions About The Film Following Its Release.
The 33-year-old star takes on one of his most challenging roles to date as transgender artist Lili Elbe, who was believed to be the first person to received sex reassignment surgery, in the upcoming movie. One scene sees Eddie bare all as his character attempts to hide his manhood; a moment which required a lot of bravery.
"Any time you get naked in front of a crew, it's embarrassing," he explained to Details magazine. "It's not as if we as actors have some way of becoming comfortable with it. It would be exactly like you getting naked in front of 30 people.
"I have a fear of talk shows on this one. They always say, 'Tell me a funny story,' but the film was so intense. We won't be putting out a gag reel."
