Jennifer Grey was engaged to to Matthew Broderick then Johnny Depp just weeks later in the ‘

“It was really a sign that there was trouble afoot on my part. I mean, honestly, I just thought it was God rescuing me from one bad situation, and just lovingly plopping me into a Johnny Depp soufflé.”

In 1985, she met Broderick on set of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, in which they played brother and sister. In 1988, the actor proposed to her with a Tiffany & Co. diamond solitaire engagement ring, she writes in her new memoir Out of the Corner, but they soon split, after which she flew to Los Angeles.

A week later, she went on a blind date, set up by her agent, with Depp, who said he had a massive crush on her after seeing Dirty Dancing.

“You have to understand Johnny Depp, 1989 Johnny Depp, so beautiful, You’ve never seen a more beautiful, whoa. You have to understand Johnny Depp, 1989 Johnny Depp, so beautiful. You’ve never seen a more beautiful, whoa.”

In her book, Grey wrote that two weeks after meeting Depp, he proposed, and later took her to Tiffany & Co. in Beverly Hills, where they picked out a small, emerald-cut diamond ring with small emerald baguettes. She revealed they soon moved in together, talked about starting a family, and got a puppy named Lulu.

But the couple’s relationship didn’t last long. Grey wrote that nine months after they met, she broke off their engagement.

Depp is making headlines for an entirely different reason. He is currently involved in a defamation trial against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, who he is suing for $50 million over a 2018 Washington Post essay, in which she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse” without mentioning the actor by name. Heard is countersuing Depp, who denies her allegations and has accused her of acting violent herself in their relationship, for $100 million.
