Johnny Depp rumored to be in England, buying a country home


The Sun is reporting that Johnny Depp has been spotted in “the depths” of Suffolk, England, and now everyone thinks Johnny is moving there. I wouldn’t think anything of this seemingly random report, but when Vanessa Paradis was interviewed by Harper’s Bazaar UK, she said, “I surely dream of a house in England, but it has not happened yet.” So is Johnny finally giving his lady what she wants, a perfect little English country home?

MOVIE heart-throb JOHNNY DEPP is said to be moving into an English village. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor, 47, was spotted in a pub at Rougham, Suffolk.

Locals also say they have seen him recently driving a white van through the village.

Brenda Beeton, vice-chairman of Rushbrooke with Rougham parish council, said: “Rumours are flying that he’s coming here.

“I’ve heard his children might have been registered at the village school.”

Depp, who has two children with French actress and singer VANESSA PARADIS, has homes in France, Los Angeles and an island in the Bahamas.

It sounds like random reports, honestly. Like, a bunch of English people saw a dude with dark hair driving a van (seriously) and they all yelled “Johnny Depp!” But it could happen.

Anyway, going back to Vanessa’s interview in Bazaar UK, I had a chance to read the complete article – this is the one where she said she and Johnny “tamed each other.” There are a few other interesting parts that I wanted to transcribe… like Vanessa’s obsession with Marilyn Monroe, and how Johnny bought Vanessa a piece of jewelry once owned by Marilyn.

There have been incessant rumours in the press that the pair are planning on buying a property in the UK but Vanessa says otherwise: “Apparently, we are buying a house every year… I surely dream of a house in England, but it has not happened yet.”

“I didn’t tame Johnny… we tamed each other.”

Paradis’s own inspiration comes from her heroines, especially Marilyn Monroe.

“Marilyn has always touched me. I adore her as a singer, as an actress, and a woman… there is something divine about her.”

A heart locket once owned by Monroe, a present from Depp, is one of her most prized possessions.

“Johnny is a very special guy, he has so many talents. He is a wonderful father and does so many different things so well,” says Paradis with a smile; she pauses, then adds that he can also play a mean guitar.

When asked about how she brings up her children, she says with a sniff: “They are not in the public domain.”

They just seem like they have a really sweet relationship, and I could totally see Johnny wandering around the English countryside, looking for the perfect home for Vanessa. Here are some more shots from Vanessa’s appearance in Bazaar – she photographs so beautifully.

    UGH her teeth are so gross!

  2. Gwen says:

    I’m a little bit over both of them after their support of Roman Polanski. She does look good here though.

  3. snowball says:

    Her teeth are gross because she has a gap? I haven’t spent a ton of time in Europe lately, but when I was there, the people I did talk to used to think our obsession with pure white, evenly-spaced and filed veneers was hilarious.

    She and Johnny do seem like an English countryside sort of couple, I never could see them in LA for long.

    I wish he’d either let his hair really go or cut it short. That in-between look (I know it’s for the film) does nothing for him, it makes him look chubby.

    Interesting point, Snowball. I have read that people getting dentures nowadays want some oddities, like spacing, so they don’t look so much like dentures.

  5. Tess says:

    Her teeth look fine—appealingly quirky in the first shot.

    In the second? Not so much. A little goofy.

  6. Kel says:

    Love the fact she doesn’t talk about their children.

  7. Feebee says:

    True or not, I would not find it the least surprising if he added the English countryside to his list of homes. Of course the UK doesn’t afford the same privacy protections (as France) but I guess he and his family manage in LA just fine.

    [Gap-toothed gals know how to whistle for what they want. Give the lady a break folks, she’s living life — truly admirable.}

  9. Lisa says:

    I think she is stunning. The gap in her teeth gives her character.

  10. xxodettexx says:

    i happen to find her gap teeth very charming!

    and i also like that she didnt want to discuss her children and just said they are not in the public domain…

  11. Emily says:

    I find gapped teeth pretty cute on women. Much more appealing than the perfect veneer thing going on.

    I found this on my friend’s notebook who had a massive crush on JD way back from when we were in high school in French class. It says this:

    C’est un fardeau que le dents de Vanessa Paradis ressemble à l’image du Cryptkeeper! Voudrais vous à le regarder tous les jour, Johnny Depp? Je ne l’ai pas pensé!

    It’s a burden that Vanessa Paradis’s teeth resemble the Cryptkeeper. Would you want to see that everyday, Johnny Depp? I didn’t think so.

    They look cute though and it’s almost like her trademark so why fix them especially now? That’d make her less popular and appear arrogant.
