Johnny Depp’s dating timeline has been trailed by chains of interesting events as much as it has been a very dramatic affair all through the way. For some strange reasons, we believe it’s not disturbing for one to regard Edward Scissorhands as a perfect allegory for the actor’s dating history.
In the romantic dark fantasy film wherein Mr Depp starred as an artificial man (Edward), an old inventor suffered a heart attack and died before he could give Edward hands and make him a perfect artificial man. Like the old inventor, Johnny Depp’s relationships, almost all of them, failed when everyone was hoping for a perfect ending. The following is a concise account of Johnny Depp’s dating history, but before that, let’s take a recap of who the man is, after all, that’s why his dating history is a thing of public interest.
Born as John Christopher Depp II on the 9th of June, 1963, Johnny Depp is fairly known as a musician, celebrated as one of the world’s finest film figures, and has equally done well for himself as a producer. His storming of the entertainment industry started with music when he was 12, he had received a guitar from his mother, Betty Sue Plamer. He soon left school and became a rock musician. However, his accomplishments were of little significance until he portrayed an undercover police officer in 21 Jump Street of the 1980s. Johnny went on to play other roles which have remained the highlight of his acting career. From 1999’s Sleepy Hollow to Pirate of the Caribbean franchise and other mega-hits, he has gathered numerous awards and more nominations.

While it was reported that the actor is fixing his life and clearing the mess of the failed marriage, it was disclosed that he’s made out time to find love again. Nevertheless, the identity of his love interest(s) remains unknown.
But then, it has circulated on certain quarters that the actor is charmed by Lucy Boynton, an English-American actress with whom he starred in 2017’s mystery film, Murder on the Orient Express.

- Juliette Lewis
It is said that the actor and the American singer and actress had something special but brief way back in 1993. This has never been substantiated. If it’s just a rumour, nobody can really tell. Anyway, Lewis was born on 21st June 1973 and she has been coping fine with her entertainment endeavors.
- Winona Ryder
This is definitely one of the most outstanding names in Johnny Depp’s dating timeline. Even the actor thought it was going to be Happily Ever After with this American actress born on 29th October 1971.
He started dating Lady Ryder in 1989 and was so enthusiastic about her that he inked “Winona Forever” on his arm. Well, the pleasant feelings started deteriorating and by mid-1993, they’ve had enough of themselves. What happened to the tattoo? It now reads “Wino Forever”.
- Jennifer Grey
Prior to Depp’s assertion that it would be Winona forever, he had Jennifer Grey. They were cute together and he even asked the American actress to be his wife. Surprisingly, the whole stuff was a quickie which lasted for only a handful of months in 1989. Grey was born on 26th March 1960.
- Sherilyn Fenn
Like Jennifer Grey, Mr Depp made a move to make Sherilyn his wife. It is said that they became lovers after they met on a set and dated for a number of years, beginning in 1985. They eventually got engaged to become life partners but for reasons best known to them, they abandoned the plan sometime in 1988. This American actress was born on 1st February 1965.
- Lori Allison
Now, Johnny may have had other romantic partners but his first love as known to the public is this make-up artist born on 6th September 1957. Records have it that he married her on 20th December 1983 and that they ended the union in 1985. Yep, she was Depp’s first wife.
According to reports, Lori and Winona came to Johnny’s defense when he was accused of domestic abuse by his second wife. They both testified that he’s a good man and wouldn’t act as such.
