Johnny Depp was not pleased when asked about rumors that he and longtime love Vanessa Paradis have split. But he confirmed they have not!
The actor got a bit upset when reporters at the UK premiere of his new film (follow the link for a Dark Shadows movie review) asked about her.
“The rumors are not true. They are absolutely not true,” he said.
Reports that he and Paradis, 39, his partner of 14 years, are no longer an item have become a recurring celebrity gossip topic, to his chagrin.
Depp walked his Dark Shadows red carpet solo, and was noticeably MIA from her side when she promoted her film, Cafe de Flore, in January.
For the acting great, who is notoriously private about his personal life, it has almost become pointless to address the rumors, in his view.
“No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite,” he said, according to The Sun. “I can’t say enough about it not being over.”
Paradis, for her part, hasn’t done much to dispel the rumors, remaining ambiguous when asked about her stance on long-lasting partner.“I have a problem with the term soul mates, it scares me a lot,” the French singer and actress told UK’s Stylist magazine recently.
“It’s such a strong statement ... it’s like a marriage contract. I believe in love, and I really want to believe that it lasts forever."
“But like everyone else, I have to take things a day at a time and you can never know what comes next. All you can do is hope, love and live.”
Paradis and Depp are unmarried, but have two children together.
