The celebrity pair stepped out for the premiere of Heard's latest film, "3 Days to Kill," at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood on Wednesday.
"I would rather shoot the gun and save the girl or save the guy or be hated than be cute, sweet and adorable and loved," Heard, 27, told E! News of her character, Vivi DeLay. "It's way more fun .... I always fight for those characters."
"I only make a few movies a year because for every one that I take, I've said 'no thanks' to many romantic movies where I bat my eyelashes and catch the bouquet," she added.
Depp, 50, joined his lady, whom he reportedly proposed to over the holidays, wearing his signature wide-rimmed hat and thick-framed eyeglasses. He stole a kiss on the red carpet, sweetly smooching Heard on the cheek before they made their way into the theater. Heard wore a plunging V-neck dress with a thigh-high slit for the occasion and was photographed wearing an engagement ring, though the fiercely private couple has yet to publicly confirm an upcoming union. (Sources told People in January that the engagement was for real.)
"We can't get in the way of love," Costner told People of the couple. "And that's what they found. How lucky for them!"
The comely couple met on the set of the gonzo flick
"3 Days to Kill" hits theaters Feb. 21.
