Johnny Depp and fiancée Amber Heard headed down to Heard's home state of Texas recently for a whirlwind getaway, and boy was it jam-packed!
The 50-year-old actor started the trip off by accompanying his leading lady to the 2014 Texas Film Awards in Austin, where Heard was honored with the Rising Star Award. The two posed together on the red carpet, and the blond beauty showed off the huge engagement sparkler on her left ring finger. Joining the happy couple at the event were Heard's parents, Paige Parsons and David Heard.
The "3 Days to Kill" star is a native of Austin, and in February she opened up to Vanity Fair about her Texas upbringing. "My dad is your typical old school Texan. He loves to hunt. Six days of the week, we ate what he killed. He took me to the shooting range from the time I could hold a gun, and I did target practice almost my whole life," she said.

Ben Affleck and Diddy better hope they aren’t stuck in the middle of the ocean with Jennifer Lopez anytime soon. The 44-year-old singer was asked the hypothetical question about two of her former flames during a recent interview with Power 106’s Big Boy TV.
"You're on a raft in the middle of the ocean and you look in the ocean, you see two people floating," host Big Boy asked. "You can only pull up one because that's how much room you have on the raft. You look in the ocean, you see Ben Affleck and you see Diddy."
J.Lo burst out laughing, replying, "I'd let both those motherf-----s drown!"
But it was all in good fun and Jennifer quickly added, "That's terrible! I'm just joking! Ben, Puffy, you know I love you. You know that. They know it."

Monday night's season finale of "The Bachelor" left fans outraged after Juan Pablo broke Clare's heart and left Nikki without a proposal or an "I love you." Angry viewers — including Kirstie Alley — immediately took to Twitter to voice their upset at the ABC reality star.
The "Kirstie" star unleashed her furry tweeting, "I HATE THIS A******!!! He is a jerk!!!! STRAIGHT UP!!" She later added, "he's says I'm honest like a broken record.. which means he's a colossal liar," and "I wish she had spit in his face....ok fair enough... imma hot blooded Latino."
Alley may have been one of Juan Pablo's more high-profile critics, but she wasn't his only critic — by far. Twitter exploded with comments about the single dad.
@fortheglow vented, "Uh. #JuanPablo is making every man in America (including our ex-boyfriends) look like sweet angels. #itsookay." And @AshWilke wrote, "#JuanPablo is the worst bachelor in the history of the show."

Shailene Woodley isn't your typical Hollywood star, and you definitely won't be seeing her buried in her cell phone anytime soon.
In a recent interview with the Daily Beast, the "Divergent" star said that she — GASP! — doesn't own a cell phone. The 23-year–old explained, "I'm not a big technology person. I don't even have a smartphone. I don't even have a cell phone! And if I were to have one, it would be a flip phone."
Her decision to be mobile-free came after she realized there's "a bigger lack of camaraderie and community than there's ever been." And since ditching the electronics, Shailene admits the outcome has bettered her communication. "Since I got rid of my phone, [I'm] having to pull over and be like, 'Hey, buddy — do you know how to get here?' I'm talking to people more than I've ever talked to in my life because I no longer have that crutch," she explained. "The more you get away from all the technological buzz, the more freedom you have."

What do Jennifer Garner, Beyoncé, Jane Lynch, fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, and NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson have in common? The A-listers teamed up with the Girl Scouts of the USA and LeanIn.org for a campaign that urges a ban on the word bossy and encourages young ladies to be leaders. In a Public Service Announcement released on Sunday, the stars point out that girls are discouraged from taking on leadership roles because of name calling and labeling. "I think the word 'bossy' is just a squasher," "Glee" star Lynch says. The "Run the World" singer adds, "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," for fear of being called "bossy." The campaign hopes to empower young women by encouraging everyone to sign a pledge to ban the five-letter word at banbossy.com. In addition to some of Hollywood’s elite, the girl power campaign features Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg who also founded LeanIn.org and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. “We need to recognize the many ways we systematically discourage leadership in girls from a young age — and instead, we need to encourage them," says Sandberg. "So the next time you have the urge to call your little girl bossy? Take a deep breathe and praise her leadership skills instead."

Margot Robbie was barely recognizable on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday, when she sported dark hair after ditching her blond locks. While most women would kill for her luscious golden hair, Margot revealed that she prefers being a brunette and was not happy when she had to go blond for her role in "The Wolf of Wall Street." The 23-year-old opened up to Elle about lightening her mane for her role as Jordan Belfort's wife, who was a blond. She said, "I was devastated when I had to go blond." Margot quickly swapped hue's and went back to being a brunette for her newest role in "Z for Zachariah." She told People magazine about the decision to rock chocolate brown locks at the Academy Awards. "I did a movie, and I didn't have time to go back to blond," she said. "I'm liking it! I'm getting used to it. I feel very mysterious as a brunette!" And while she is digging her new look, she didn't mean to go quite as dark as she did. She told Elle, "We left it in for a little long and it went really dark. But it's great though, I love it. It's really fun." This isn't the first time the actress has darkened her 'do. She told Elle, "I had it this color all through high school actually. I always dyed it dark in high school." And Margot's even thinking about keeping the brown hair for a while. She told people, "I might not dye it back right away, I'll wait until I know what my next movie is."

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend tied the knot at Italy's Lake Como last September in what was a fairy-tale wedding, but the Sports Illustrated model does have one regret about the special day. "The Insider" caught up with the 28-year-old at the London Fog Collaboration event Tuesday, and she filled us in on the wedding tradition she wishes she hadn't skipped over. "I do have one regret," she revealed. "And that's not having a first dance. I refused to have a first dance 'cause I can't dance. So I don't like dancing in front of people. But everything else was just perfect." And while the day might have been perfect, the nuptials didn't go off without a hitch. Chrissy and John grace the cover of the spring 2014 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, and the brunette beauty revealed in the mag that storms in Ohio delayed the flights of the groom's family, which in turn, pushed the festivities back a few hours. "They had cocktails for four hours," Chrissy joked about how guests passed the time. The "All of Me" singer's wife also dished to "The Insider" about how the rest of the day went by in the blink of an eye. "When we were still engaged, everyone, all of our married friends, had told us, you know, the most important thing is that you remember every moment of this, and it's gonna fly by. And I thought that the entire wedding. I was like, 'OK, it's going to fly by. Like, be happy every moment. Remember every moment.' And still it's hard," she revealed. "It really does fly by. It's hard to remember."
