Johnny dated Winona for four years in the 1990s, and she recently admitted that the actor has been her first real boyfriend and the first guy she had sex with. “So he’ll always be in my heart. Forever.” She claimed.
Depp and Ryder began dating after meeting at the New York premiere of Great Balls of Fire! in 1989 when he was 27 and she was 18. “There’s been nothing in my 27 years that’s comparable to the feeling I have with Winona,” Depp once told PEOPLE.
Five months after their first date the got engaged and Depp even got a tattoo on his right arm that read “Winona Forever.” They were also co-stars in the 1990 film Edward Scissorhands. But the love story wasn’t meant to last: in 1993 the couple announced breakup, and Depp had his tattoo altered to read “Wino Forever.”
“It was my first real breakup, the first heartbreak.” Said Winona to Elle in 2009.
