Not every man sports an engagement ring, but not every man is Johnny Depp. The actor showed off a gleaming diamond ring while promoting his upcoming film "Transcendence" in Beijing, and confirmed that he's not just wearing it for fashion reasons.

Johnny Depp indirectly confirmed his engagement after being spotted wearing a diamond ring.

"The fact that I'm wearing a chick's ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway," Depp said when asked by The Associated Press to confirm his engagement. "Not very subtle."

Depp is engaged to actress Amber Heard, who started sporting her own engagement ring some months back. The two starred together in the 2011 film "The Rum Diary," based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel.

But don't expect Depp to set up a Pinterest wedding page any time soon. "I think that I would be better at making women's shoes than I would be at wedding planning," Us Weekly quoted him as saying at the China event. "I can't plan anything."

From the Mad Hatter to Cry-Baby, Johnny Depp prefers oddballs and outsiders to traditional leading men.

Depp and French actress Vanessa Paradis broke up in 2012 after a 14-year relationship that produced son Jack and daughter Lily-Rose.

In "Transcendence," Depp stars as Dr. Will Caster, a brilliant and controversial artificial-intelligence researcher who embarks on a dangerous and creepy experiment. The film opens April 18.
