Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis may have recently split up from each other, but according to reports, the “21 Jump Street” star has already found the new love of his life.

The Daily Mail reported that Amber Heard, 26, has been spending a good bit of time in New Mexico on the set of “The Lone Ranger,” where Depp has been working.

In 2011, Johnny and Amber co-starred together in “The Rum Diary,” and it seems as though the 49-year-old actor fell fast for the young actress.

“When I first saw Amber, it was like seeing an old-time movie star,” Depp told USA Today in October. “It was like I was seeing Lauren Bacall.”

Apparently, “The Rum Diary,” actress was just as pleased with Depp.

“I’m making a movie with Johnny Depp. He’s a beautiful specimen of a human being,” Heard told USA Today while filming on the picturesque set in Puerto Rico in October. “It was a wildly, wildly seductive combination. That moment quite possibly has ruined every other job for me.”

She went on to tell Dazed magazine about Depp: “He’s such a wonderful presence; he is enigmatic and compelling and a true artist, seriously intelligent and incredibly sensitive. Everybody on set respects and likes him, which says a lot about an actor. It’s a grueling job at times and the stress level that everybody feels in the industry is intense — but it doesn’t affect Johnny. It seems like he has time to look everybody in the eye, and I like that; it was wonderful to see.”
