Girls around the world have breathed a collective sigh of relief – Johnny Depp won’t be a married man anytime soon. The Pirates of the Caribbean star says he has no plans to marry his longtime girlfriend, French actress Vanessa Paradis, after two kids and a dozen years together.
“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,” he says. “It doesn’t seem necessary for us. Others may want to go down that road – we don’t.”
Johnny also adds that despite being one of the most sought-after stars in Hollywood, his proudest achievement is raising a family with Vanessa.
“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, who is now 11 years old, and Jack, who’s nine,” he adds. “I saw Vanessa across a room – and I first saw only her back! But I immediately thought: ‘That’s the woman for me.’ That was nearly 12 years ago.”
