A journey through Johnny Depp's exhausting love life stuffed with exes.

A journey through Johnny Depp's exhausting love life stuffed with exes.

Amber Heard has filed for divorce from Johnny Depp after a normal-length Hollywood marriage. While this may seem rough for Depp, don't worry about him. His past romantic history shows that this guy has no problem getting another lady. In fact, if Depp does have an issue when it comes to dating, it would be that he can never stay single. Ever since the young age of 20, Depp has been on a romantic marathon, going from one engagement to the next. That's understandable because dude has been a hot commodity ever since his career started.

1. Marriage # 1

Back in 1983, 20-year old Depp was an aspiring musician and non-pirate who married 25-year-old Lori Anne Allison, the sister of Depp's band member. Their marriage made it until 1985. Allison, a makeup artist, was apparently the one who helped launch Depp's acting career. She introduced Depp to Nicolas Cage, who helped him find fame with A Nightmare on Elm Street.

The same year Depp bid adieu to his first wife, he set his sights on Sherilyn Fenn, who made an appearance on Depp's show 21 Jump Street. Fenn and Depp were so in love that Depp apparently disfigured his Platoon costume and wrote her name on his helmet.


They got serious and were engaged. After three and a half years, Depp moved on.

3. Celebrity actress #2.

File this one under "when did this happen and how did I miss it?" Depp and Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey got together in 1989. Then they were engaged. Then they weren't. All within the year. There's a pattern unfolding here: serious relationship immediately followed by serious relationship.


4. Celebrity actress #3.

Ultimte  '90s couple Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp got together in 1989, were engaged by 1990, wore a lot of '90s clothes that still inspires Tumblr, and then broke up in 1993. Johnny Depp made their love permanent with a tattoo to Winona, who was still a teen when they started dating and made Edward Scissorhands. That tattoo now reads "Wino Forever."

For a brief moment in 1993, Juliette Lewis and Johnny Depp, co-stars in What's Eating Gilbert Grape?, dated. And may have been engaged. Is there a difference between the two for Depp?

Finally, a woman Depp did not get engaged to. Depp and Ellen Barkin, who is nine years his senior and equally hot, dated for a rather short period in time in 1994. He had to make room for his next major relationship.

7. Model #1.


Another great '90s couple provided by Depp. Kate Moss and Depp stayed heroin chic together from 1994-1998. Were they engaged? Probably. 

8. Model #2.

Depp moves fast. In 1998, Depp began a 12-year relationship with musician/model/French-person Vanessa Paradis. Together, the couple had two kids: Lily-Rose and Jack. Lily-Rose is 16 and already a fashion darling.

We have arrived at the present. Proving many rumors to be true, Johnny Depp split up with Vanessa Paradis in 2012 and got serious with Amber Heard, his co-star in the 2011 film The Rum Diary. In 2014, they got engaged. In 2015 they got married. In 2016, 30-year-old Heard filed for divorce. 

So from 1983 to 2016, Depp married twice and was engaged at least four times, maybe more. OK, when spaced out over 33 years that doesn't sound as unusual. It does sound very exhausting though. Has this guy ever been single?
