The newly engaged pair celebrated their upcoming nuptials with family and A-list pals at the Carondolet Theater in Los Angeles Friday.
Actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard celebrated their whirlwind engagement with a star-studded bash in Los Angeles Friday night.
The 50-year-old “Pirates of The Caribbean” star and his 27-year-old betrothed, who met on the set of the “Rum Diaries” in 2011 and went public with their engagement in January, were feted by a celeb-filled crowd at the swanky Carondelet House.
Depp and Heard were rushed into the high-security shindig at about 8:30 p.m. They greeted their A-list guests at 9, as the luminaries slipped through a velvet-curtained entrance.
Attendees at the Moroccan-themed event included rock legend Steven Tyler, 65, actor and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, 70, music producer Rick Ruben, singer Marilyn Manson, 45, and musician Ryan Adams, 39.
Depp also celebrated his engagement with two of the most important people in his life — his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, and his longtime tattoo artist, Mark Mahoney.
The aging icons made an early night of the festivities, with most filtering out of the venue by midnight.
A noticeably younger crowed, presumably friends of Heard, who is 23 years Depp’s junior, also attended to wish the lovebirds well.
The merrymakers danced to rock oldies slung by a DJ in a yellow and white striped open air tent behind the Spanish-style brick building.
Many of the polished revelers brought gifts for the soon-to-be hitched pair.
Workers from Revelry Event Designers, Tres LA Catering, and Mark’s Garden florists had toiled throughout the day to pack the venue with high-end hors d’oeuvres and floral arrangements to meet every wish and whim of their famous clients.
Throughout the night, a small army of security guards kept a tight perimeter on the event, obstructing a scrum of paparazzi who gathered outside.
As he was leaving, Tyler said Depp’s mom was the true life of the party – and his dance partner for some of it.
“His mom was great,” he said as he wished his buddy the best once outside of the inner circle.
“I love that he’s in love,” he said.
Depp and Heard began dating on the heels of the “Edward Scissor Hands” star’s break with longtime girlfriend, French actress Vanessa Paradis, 41. It is rumored Depp’s newer, younger squeeze precipitated that split.
Depp has been married once before and has been engaged three previous times. His 1989 romantic misstep with actress Winona Ryder left a permanent mark on the actor’s arm with the tattooed words “Wino Forever” not-so-craftily changed from “Winona Forever” after the unhappy split.
