Johnny Depp Talks Retirement And Engagement With Letterman

The star said he has been wearing the engagement ring he gave his fiancée Amber Heard when he popped the question in late 2013

It was a night of big announcements on the Late Show, when actor Johnny Depp stopped by to chat with David Letterman on Thursday just minutes after the long-time host announced his retirement.

Johnny joked that he was planning to announce his retirement too that night. “Now that is ruined because no one cares,” Depp joked. But the actor had some real news to discuss too — his engagement with actress Amber Heard.

“I have a female engagement ring,” said the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, who was first spotted wearing the ring while in Beijing on Monday. “Yes … it was too big for my girl.”
