Vanessa Paradis: Johnny Depp Is The Love Of My Life

Vanessa Paradis: Johnny Depp Is The Love Of My Life

It’s rare we get a peak into the personal lives of notoriously private lovebirds Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, but the French beauty shares a bit about their relationship in a new interview with the UK’s Sunday Times.

“I’d wanted to be a mother for a long time, but with him I couldn’t avoid it,” Vanessa says of her longtime love. “He was, and still is, the love of my life.”

The pair have never married – though the interviewer notes, “the chunkiest thing about her is the ring on the fourth finger of her left hand, made up of more than half a dozen small diamonds” – but they have been together for 11 years and are parents to kids Lily-Rose, 10, and Jack, 7.

“Maybe I’m a good girlfriend because I’m his girlfriend. I’m not sure I’d be a good girlfriend to anyone else. There is a lot of friendship between us, respect and admiration,” Vanessa says of her relationship with People magazine’s recently re-crowned Sexiest Man Alive. “We’ve understood that if we want it to carry on working, it’s essential to give each other space. You don’t eat the same food every day, you don’t read the same book or listen to the same record over and over again. You have to discover things for yourself.”

Despite their busy schedules – Vanessa is a singer and actress as well – she says their family always stays together.

“We can’t be apart for long. I’ve spent my life travelling, so I am used to going wherever Johnny is, whether it’s England, Prague, Mexico or Paris. The kids like it, too. I hope it will make them broad-minded and open. As long as we have everything they need – which is a lot, like about 40 bags – we have as normal a life as possible.”

Even after so many years together, Vanessa still seems smitten by her Oscar-nominated beau, saying, “I could go on and on about all the things I admire in him. I like watching him when he’s thinking, when he’s talking with people, I like seeing how he handles situations. I admire him as an actor, as a father, as a man. Above all, I admire the person he is. He’s fantastic.”

    Johnny has never won an Oscar although he’s been nominated.

    As a die-hard Johnny fan I’d say that Oscar is long overdue.

    They seem to have a really amazing relationship. Johnny and Vanessa are one of the few celebrity couples who don’t flaunt their every move in the media, which is very commendable.

    “It’s rare we get a peak”… should be read “It’s rare we get a PEEK”.

    I know I may get a lot of heat for this but what does she mean exactly when she says “He WAS, and still is, the love of my life”? Kind of a weird way of wording that sentence together.

    I don’t know much about her except she’s a french singer…but she’s very pretty. Anyways, she is massively lucky. When it comes to men, she struck gold.
