    Depp confirms engagement... sort of


    ACTOR Johnny Depp showed off a diamond engagement ring on Monday - setting off more speculation over his engagement to actress Amber Heard.

    Asked whether he was engaged, the Pirates Of The Caribbean star said: "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 his left hand and displayed a single diamond on a band around his ring finger.

    Some reports took his comment as an indirect admission.

    There have been numerous unconfirmed reports of Depp's engagement to Heard, 27, who starred with him in The Rum Diary, filmed in Puerto Rico in 2009.

    In 2012, Depp split with his partner of 14 years, French model-singer Vanessa Paradis, 41. They have two children.

    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. The film also stars Rebecca Hall as Depp's wife and Morgan Freeman.
