London - Johnny Depp believes Amber Heard is "very good" for him.

The 50-year-old actor thinks his 27-year-old beau, whom he recently got engaged to, brings out the best in him and he finds her

"wonderful" and beautiful.

He told "She's a wonderful girl. She's sharp as a tack. A southern belle and sweet as can be, and very good for me."

The couple first sparked rumours they had got engaged in January after the 'Transcendence' star reportedly popped the question over the Christmas period.

However, Johnny insists he'll be leaving the wedding planning to the blonde beauty because he's "really bad" at organising things.

He said previously: "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."

Johnny first met Amber on the set of 'The Rum Diary' in 2011 and a year later separated from his partner of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has children Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, and began dating Amber shortly afterwards. - Bang Showbiz
