Seen here at last night’s premiere of her new movie,
Croissants: The Musical Cafe De Flore, Vanessa Paradis at some point clearly laughed in Johnny Depp‘s face when he suggested they stay together because they’re “soulmates” which is really the only way to interpret this quote. Via RadarOnline:
“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,” said Paradis, who is staying in France while Depp is living thousands of miles away in Los Angeles.
“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.”
To hear this kind of a candor from a woman is pretty refreshing considering movies and television have conditioned them to believe relationships are a whimsical, fancy-free time filled with Adele songs and sex with your bra still on. When in reality, they’re a goddamn prison of emotions where sometimes Johnny Depp does heroin and agrees to looking like Michael Jackson or Gerard Way or whatever the hell’s giving Tim Burton an erection these days. But, noooo, they don’t show that in the movies.
