Beijing - Johnny Depp showed off a diamond engagement ring that he called a "chick's ring" on Monday — indirectly confirming rumours of his engagement to actress Amber Heard.
Asked whether he was engaged, the Pirates of the Caribbean star replied: "The fact that I'm wearing a chick's ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle." He laughed as he lifted up his left hand and displayed a single diamond on a band around his ring finger.
His comments follow months of unconfirmed reports of his engagement to actress Heard, 27, who starred alongside Kevin Costner in 3 Days to Kill released in the U.S. earlier this year.
In 2012, Depp split with his partner of 14 years, French model-singer Vanessa Paradis. They have two children.
In a trademark off-the-wall comment, Depp said: "I think that I would be better at making women's shoes than I would be at wedding planning, I can't plan anything. I'm really bad at that stuff."
The 50-year-old actor was in Beijing to promote his new movie Transcendence. Depp plays a terminally ill scientist who downloads his mind into a computer in the sci-fi drama that asks: What if we could upload a human mind into a computer? It also stars Rebecca Hall as Depp's wife and Morgan Freeman.
