She hasn't dated him in years, but Winona Ryder sure has an opinion on Johnny Depp's engagement to Amber Heard.


She might have been engaged to him years ago, but Winona Ryder doesn't approve of Johnny Depp's fiancée Amber Heard. According to RadarOnline, the 42-year-old actress finds their relationship "inappropriate."

Ryder dated The Lone Ranger star from 1989 until the couple broke up in 1993. She did have "a respectful relationship with Johnny for years afterward, but she soured on any idea of an acting reunion after Johnny hooked up with Amber."

There had been rumors that Ryder was interested in teaming up with Depp and filmmaker Tim Burton again after their successful collaboration on Edward Scissorhands in 1990. The source of the actress's ire is the 23-year age difference between her ex and Heard.

Ryder also seems to side with Depp's former love, Vanessa Paradis, who was reportedly left behind by her longtime partner for the 27-year-old actress.

RadarOnline's source revealed, "The way he conducted that affair really upset Winona and turned her off to Johnny."

It also appears that the Girl, Interrupted star isn't getting much support from their mutual friends.

"The thing she especially can't stand is how all of Johnny's middle-aged friends, even Tim Burton, are cheering this relationship on like it's appropriate, when Winona is telling her own friends that it's absolutely not. She's pulled a 180 on her opinion of Johnny and his cronies because she thinks it's a sad cliché that he'd dump his long-term baby mama for a woman in her 20s," said the insider.

Will Depp and Heard even make it to the altar? At the age of 50, the Pirates of the Caribbean star hasn't walked down the aisle since 1983 from his first marriage to Lori Anne Allison. Perhaps Ryder's anger is all for naught.
