Amber Heard Won't Open Up About Her Relationship with Johnny Depp

The "Rum Diaries" co-stars are keeping their private lives, well, private.

Actor Johnny Depp, 50, was rumored to have started dating his 27-year-old Rum Diaries co-star Amber Heard as early as last summer—but the couple didn't make it official until June when they were spotted holding hands at the premiere of Johnny's new flick, The Lone Ranger.

After such a long wait to go public with their relationship, it's no surprise Heard wasn't keen on opening up about their relationship in the September 2013 issue of Flare magazine.

"It's not part of my professional life," Heard said in the interview. "I want to be an artist, I don't want to be a celebrity."

Johnny Depp is known for being the quiet type: His 14-year marriage to model Vanessa Paradis stayed out of tabloids until Depp's publicist announced the couple's divorce last fall.

Heard has done a great job of keeping her past relationships out of the public eye as well. She kept her photographer girlfriend Tasya van Ree secret for nearly two years before coming out about their relationship at the 2010 GLAAD awards.

"Can you ever imagine yourself in a situation like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West? I would never want it." Heard said. "I guess I could not hold hands with who I want to, but what kind of life would that be?"

What do you think? Will Amber and Johnny be able to keep their relationship private, or does publicity just come with the territory?
