Vanessa Paradis doesn't have a soulmate

2012-01-23 09:43
London - Vanessa Paradis doesn't believe in soulmates.

The 39-year-old actress - who has been the subject of reports that her 14-year relationship with The Tourist star Johnny Depp is in trouble - revealed her thoughts on love while promoting her new movie Cafe De Flore.

MailOnline quotes Vanessa as saying she didn't believe in marriage or soulmates because "if you lose your soulmate everything is done for".

She added: "The idea of a soulmate is beautiful and very romantic to talk about it in a movie or a song, but in reality, I find it scary.

"Cafe De Flore speaks of love, its joys, its pains and its dramas - to love and to lose. This story upset me, I was upside-down, in the depths of myself."


Although Johnny and Vanessa - who have two children Lily-Rose, 12, and son Jack, nine, together - have never married, Johnny claims it is because their relationship is perfect as it is.

He has previously said: "We've never married and that's how it is going to stay - for now. As one of our presidents once said, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it.' We just haven't done the big public vow thing. It doesn't seem necessary for us. Others may want to go down that road - we don't.

"If you call meeting Vanessa an 'achievement', it was certainly that. It came at the right time. We were both ready for children, and she's given me Lily Rose, and Jack. I saw Vanessa across a room - and I first saw only her back! But I immediately thought: "That's the woman for me."
