Is Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s May-December Relationship in Danger?

Sugar Daddy Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s May-December RelationshipHollywood’s favorite sugar daddy, Johnny Depp, may not be on the big screen for much longer. The 50-year-old actor recently revealed in an inter­view that he’s think­ing about retir­ing from act­ing after nearly three decades in front of the cam­era. “Are there qui­eter things I wouldn’t mind doing? Yeah, I wouldn’t mind that,” he told BBC. “I wouldn’t say I am drop­ping out any sec­ond, but I would say it’s prob­a­bly not too far away.”

Depp explained that as an actor, he’s get­ting tired of always say­ing what other peo­ple want him to. “When you add up the amount of dia­logue you say per year and you real­ize you’ve said writ­ten words more than you’ve had a chance to say your own words that becomes an insane option for a human being.”

This isn’t the first time the celebrity sugar daddy has men­tioned retire­ment. He recently told Rolling Stone mag­a­zine that he wants to con­cen­trate on “really liv­ing life.” Lately, Deep has cer­tainly been liv­ing it up with his much younger girl­friend, 27-year-old actress Amber Heard. The celebrity cou­ple has been dat­ing on and off since 2012.

While Depp pon­ders retire­ment, Heard’s career is just start­ing to really take off. She’s got at least four films lined up for release between now and 2014, which begs the ques­tion: If Depp is plan­ning to retire and set­tle down, where does that leave Heard and her career?

What do you think: If Johnny Depp retires from act­ing, will it affect his May-December rela­tion­ship with Amber Heard?
