Radar: Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis are “headed for a split”

A few weeks ago, Star Magazine had an interesting story about Johnny Depp. According to their sources, Depp has been acting kind of crazy lately because he’s in the midst of an alcohol-soaked mid-life crisis. Vanessa Paradis, his partner of more than a decade, is not amused. Allegedly, Vanessa has basically told him to go away, get his act together, and then come back to her and the children. Meanwhile, Johnny is still partying and working and basically acting like a single dude. Now, Radar and Star are owned by the same parent company, and this Radar story sounds a lot like Star’s report – but I still find it interesting.

Hollywood heavyweight Johnny Depp’s long term relationship with Vanessa Paradis is on the rocks RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned, and the actor is struggling to deal with their crucial problems, says a source.

Johnny, 48, and the mother of his two children, have been arguing constantly and this may be the end for the couple as they head towards Splitsville.

“Johnny isn’t handling anything well right now,” a source close to the Pirates of the Caribbean star told RadarOnline.com.

“People around him are worried about how Johnny is doing because he and Vanessa seem so fractured right now. Their relationship is heading toward the end.”

While Depp’s movies are doing well, his personal life may be falling apart. “Johnny has started reaching out to lawyers, probably to quietly discuss how to get out of the relationship. They’re not married but they’ve been together for years and have kids together so it isn’t as easy as just breaking up,” the source said.

While Johnny has tried to put on a brave face for his children, the source said friends are concerned about him.

“Johhny is so talented at acting, but he doesn’t seem able to hide how badly things are going right now.”

On one side, it’s really sad to think that Johnny and Vanessa could be headed for a split. They have an unconventional relationship in general – and I’m not just talking about the whole “famously unmarried” stuff. In Depp’s interviews over the past few years, I find it remarkable how often he and Vanessa are not in the same city. She’s rarely with him while he’s on location, and it just doesn’t seem like they spend that much time together in general. So… that’s sad. On the other hand, it would certainly be interesting to see Johnny Depp as a single bachelor in his 40s, right? How many A-list women would try to hop on that? I think Penelope Cruz and Marion Cotillard might have a head start. Maybe even Amber Heard…

    So Depp doesn’t believe in having manicures.
    He is one hell of a grotty man that always looks like he’s in need of a shower.

    • Nicole says:

      He lost all his sex appeal when he started to date that ugly talentless woman! Look at that bloated face and awful haircut. I hardly doubt Cruz, Heard and Cotillard were ever turned on by this living mess…

      • Amy says:

        Um, she’s not talentless. I’ll refer you to La Fille sur le Pont.

      • JaneWonderfalls says:

        I agree! I’m glad they are going to separate they were the most pretentious couple. Maybe it’s the whole French thing. I mean speaking from experience the French can be a bit of dicks! Not all but most. I stand by my statement.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        I never got his appeal. I was a genuine rocker girl once. I looked like a cross between Pam Anderson (female and skanky) and Nikki Sixx (brunette and rocker), maybe Kat Von D when she was 2 sans tattoos? I worshiped Trent Reznor, I wanted to be the goth metal Layla. You get the point. I am establishing my former rocker girl cred as a preface to what I was going to say about him.

        Johnny Depp has always been a wanna be. He’s a poseur. He was in 21 Jump Street a show about 20 somethings that narced on teens. That show still pisses me off. Johnny Depp thinks he is a rock star. He thinks he is edgy. He thinks not washing and being bony makes him so. He is not any of those things. Being a druggy and an alchie does not a rocker make. He is a MAINSTREAM ACTOR who makes REALLY BAD sequels and got lucky that Tim Burton likes him. My mom is a fan of Johnny Depp’s (as an actor). She has never been a fan of Trent Reznor, Nick Cave or Nikki Sixx. Johnny Depp is Tom Cruise without the bad religion and access to indoor plumbing. Vanessa, I wish you happiness and a long shower. Good riddance. I’m glad you aren’t putting up with this like some women would. I’m part French, I know how snooty we are but she is showing the good side of that snottiness. French women are confident. I wish I had inherited that part of the gene pool.

    • Emilia s says:

      Look at pictures of Vanessa BEFORE she started a life with Johnny. Such a beautiful woman then, with angel skin, hair and eyes. Then look at her since she met him- a grey, tired wreck most of the time. Johhny is a wonderful actor but he pretty sure isnt easy to live with. And i wouldnt be surprised if theres a lot of alcohol use in the Depp/paradis family. Hope this turns out for the best. Vanessa doesnt seem like the most independant woman on earth..

      • tmbg says:

        Well, she didn’t have kids before him, and that will wear you out and take its toll. Plus the teeth have never helped. I get that not everyone wants hideous Chiclet teeth, but some Invisalign braces would at least straighten them out a bit.

    • Kew1224 says:

      What is it with people who don’t take care of their bodies no one wants to get near a person who smells and seems to be afraid of soap and water I wonder if they can smell themselves

    • vla says:

      Number one. the picture posted abover was taken days after one of his best friends had just committed suicide. Hunter Thompson. Im sure Johnny didnt even want to be at the Oscars that night but was obligated to keep his committment. I believe Vanessa & he have a friendship that most of us will never be lucky enough to find. We dont know if she is with him or not. Just because she isnt in the spotlight. She is with her children being a mother. Maybe this rumor is true. I dont believe it. but if it is true lets not forget that they have 2 young children that will be affected & anyone that hopes its true for any reason at all is disgusting. Vanessa may not be as glamorous all the time as she used to be because maybe that sort of thing isnt what is important to her anymore. She has been working for many years. started a child. Dont you think she may be tired of all of that. whatever their reasons for anything they do is none of anyones business. People should just leave people alone. If they are having problems the media should stay out of it & maybe they can work it out for the childrens sake! I think no matter what Johnny would never leave his family behind nor is he ever trying to “get out of it” as someone said. If you know anything about Johnny Depp is he is a honest, moral, decent man that is well above most people on this planet but he wouldnt never know it. Because he is humble, kind & a caring human being to everyone he meets.

  2. Marjalane says:

    Yeah…I think he’s past the hot bachelor stage. Boozer Johnny Depp looks like he showers even less often than sober Johnny Depp.

  3. Eve says:

    My god, what is that atrocity Cruz is wearing? But I think I have an idea…that’s Marchesa, right?

    • anon33 says:

      HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      oh how I hate Marchesa…thank you Eve that was hilarious

    • gg says:

      Really? I like that one – it’s an amazing piece of construction you have to admit.

    • polk8dot says:

      I think this dress is gorgeous! It fits Penelope perfectly, the beading underneath is fabulous, and the color under the blue voile is completely unexpected. Without the voile the dress would have been hideous, straight out of Dollywood. With it – it’s perfection. And Penelope looks fantastic in it.

      • gg says:

        i do get that most Marchesa gowns look like 80s drag queen monstrosities, but this one, on Penelope with the perfect figure, I like. And love the color.

  4. Marianne says:

    “I think Penelope Cruz and Marion Cotillard might have a head start. Maybe even Amber Heard…”

    Don’t know about Amber Heard but Penelope is with Javier, and Marion is married/engaged as well.

    • normades says:

      That’s what I was gonna say. Pene has a baby with Javier, Marion with Guillaume Canet. I doubt either of those women want Smelly Depp.

    • Turtle Dove says:

      My thoughts too – married, married, bisexual (with more lesbian leanings).

      You just KNOW 100% that if they did split JLO would be trying to put her blockness all over him. now THAT I would love to see. LOL

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        JLO AND Katy Perry both!

      • eileen says:

        OMG if JHo got her claws on JD and its successful, we can then start looking for White Horsemen. Just….no. I love Vanessa-she’s so unconventional and they make a great pair…but if its not working I guess that doens’t keep a pair together. lol

      • Jezi says:

        Would he even be interested in JLO? I don’t even think he’s young enough for her. I do think that him and Amber may have a little flirty flirty going on. If so, that is sad. Seems Vanessa was just as dirty as Depp.

      • Madchen says:

        Ha ha. Imagine Depp if he got the Bennifer redo. Slick, shiny, and clean. Sad for him but fun to watch.

    • Original Chloe says:

      My thoughts exactly. Also, I love Penelope and Javier together so stay away Johnny Depp!

    • DarkEmpress says:

      Exactly! Although I did like Marion and Johnny together in Public Enemies. They definitely have chemistry. I wonder what French law is on common law spouses sharing assets? I imagine he won’t care too much about dividing his assets.

      • traVail says:

        From what I remember in France it does not matter if you are legally married or not – as long as there is some proof, some documentation (even a picture will suffice) the kids are treated as legitimate heirs and the woman/commom law wife just as a wife would. So there would be no divorce, obviously, but she would have a total legal claim to a share of his assets plus support for the kids.
        If you think about it, it’s actually kind of progressive of the French to be so ‘understanding and accomodating’ of alternative lifestyles.

    • Camille says:

      Maybe he could hook up with Winona again. I LOVED them together. Sigh. :)

    • Amis says:

      Amber Heard is openly gay.

  5. Dusty says:

    Let’s not forget he isn’t so international – he was born in Kentucky! lol
    (PS Writing this from Lexington Kentucky)

    • gg says:

      He loves him some France though – he’s been living there for a LONG time. Can’t help but have it sink in fully with a French wife living France.

  6. lisa says:

    Penelope is married with a child. Marion is with someone and has a child. And I thought that Amber girl is a lesbian. Not every woman wants to be with an Alist actor.

    Even if it is Johnny Depp

    • Julia says:

      Amber Heard is bisexual and as said so. she has dated both sexes but I doubt she’ll go after Depp

  7. mln76 says:

    I genuinely hope this is BS. They have 2 kids. Lily Rose has been papped a lot recently and she looks like she’s going to be a handful in her teens. I’m over my lifelong Johnny D crush but still it would be devastating to see his relationship end.

  8. Laura says:

    I’m pretty sure Amber Heard isn’t interested in what Johnny has to offer unless he has a vagina I don’t know about.

    • Zelda says:

      Same thoughts here.

    • gloaming says:

      Lol :-)

    • Bubulle says:

      I think she came out as bi not gay, he still stand a chance.

      • Eve says:

        That means…I can totally have a threesome with them — WIN! :)

      • Cam says:

        i remember in interview Johnny (or was it Amber?) actually alluded to Amber having avoided fraternizing with him and the crew when they weren’t shooting Rum Diaries. She opted for going home and spending time with her girlfriend instead. Just saying. He probably wouldn’t even have a chance if she were completely heterosexual.

    • Zoe says:

      She doesn’t have that freak or eccentric factor he seems to like. Most of serious girlfriends aren’t that beautiful or conventional.

  9. artsygirl66 says:

    i can’t believe you even mentioned Penelope cruz and Marion Cotillard, these women are currently in a relationship and seems happy and to top it all, they both just had babies…but when a celebrity happens to steal a husband or wife, you bash them for being immoral..where are yours?

    • Marjalane says:

      I’m pretty sure she was referring to affairs of the past.

      • Esmom says:

        Yes, I took them as digs at rumored or tab-suggested affairs. And if that’s the case, why not add Jolie to the list? The tabs were just itching for that to happen on the Tourist set!

    • Violet says:

      Well, Penelope might be single again sooner rather than later. Her husband was rumored to have had an affair with Julia Roberts while Penelope was pregnant.

  10. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Aw, I don’t want to see these two break up but if they do I would LOVE to see a Depp/Cotillard match-up.
    I bet Ryan Reynolds is hoping these two stick it out too ’cause you know BLively will be jumping on that shit!

  11. sundaygal says:

    Go get yo man, Winona!

  12. lola says:

    that blind a few days everyone thinks is RDJ i kept thinking was depp – except for the “married” part of it (but then i think the blinds deliberately mislead certain details on occaision).

  13. Matie says:

    Vanessa is the ugliest woman I’ve ever seen, I read an article on the Daily Mail a few weeks ago and the reporter called her stunning and hundreds of commenters said things like stunning? she’s really ugly. Literally everyone called her ugly cuz she IS!

    http://www.celebitchy.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/fp_4581200_angfp_joliepitt_deppparadis_022410.jpg

    • Ann says:

      I don’t think she’s “ugly”. Let’s be honest, Johnny boy has been past the “hot” stage for years now.

    • Michelle says:

      Oh man! That’s so crazy how when one woman has no make up in a blurry picture at an awkward angle she looks less amazing than another woman in full make up and costume on set! HOW SHOCKING. GOOD EVIDENCE.

      • Matie says:

        I was just using a pic from this website from an old article, so quit the bitchy attitude, Vanessa. LOL

    • Bobby sue says:

      I just rented the French flick Heartbreaker. She really is beautiful in motion. Her jaw structure is amazing. She has that Je ne sais crois. But in print her looks don’t translate as well.

      • autumndaze says:

        I think you mean, “je ne sais quois”…

        *getting back to eating my quoissan*

      • Cleo says:

        We’re actually saying “je ne sais quoi”,:)

      • lrm says:

        Yes,I just saw Heartbreaker-it was showing free on the netflix online service-it’s such a great film! so funny. and Vanessa is great-and looks beautiful in it.

        I agree with others-she’s got an unconventional/unique look that does translate in modelling and on screen.

        i’m done with depp too.
        He’s just overexposed now and sold out with too many POTC movies. The first one I actively went to see,and thought it was fun. Now….all i can think is sell out. I don’t mind an actor making some good money after years of quirky movies, but please!

        Also, tim burton and depp were cool and interesting when they first collaborated. By now, it’s the same schtick over and over again with their movies. It’s no longer interesting or edgy. It’s boring.

        I don’t hate him; I’m just bored.
        And the tourist is just such a bad movie. embarrasing really. and it got nominated? hilarious. I cannot take these awards seriously anymore. And I don’t like AJ’s acting at all. So Depp was the only reason to see it. No more!

    • mln76 says:

      I love Angie but it’s a bit unfair to compare her made up on a movie set to Vanessa running errands with no makeup. Vanessa is older, a smoker and has unusual features. She’s not exactly traditionally beautiful like many succesful models but she is unique and stunning all the same.

    • Turtle Dove says:

      You rudely rip apart a woman for her looks and then call a poster bitchy for disputing you? Uh, pot calling the kettle black I’d say.

      Vanessa P. looks fine and Angie spent 2 hours in the makeup chair, not exactly comparable.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I have a feeling that Matie is a 13-year-old who’s sitting in study hall right now.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah she’s a real dog. I really can’t imagine what he saw in her:

      http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMTMwMTM1NTcwOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwNTE2NTg1._V1._SX214_CR0,0,214,314_.jpg

    • mia135 says:

      I remember that article. I don’t think she’s ugly, I think she’s just a normal, average looking woman without her makeup on. The trouble is, the media always tries to paint her as this great, alluring beauty with this air of mystery – mainly I think because she’s French. When she’s dressed up and got her makeup on she looks nice, and has a very unique, interesting look.

      • Bermuda Blues says:

        Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Johnny obviously finds Vanessa very beautiful. He’s gone so far as to say when he saw her face it was “Love at first sight” so obviously he finds it beautiful and fascinating.

        Everyone has different taste. For example, me. I don’t believe Beyonce is really pregnant, frankly because I just CANNOT believe anyone would let that fugly beast impregnate them with his fugly genes! But hey, good for them, if they find each other attractive, thats what counts. I’ll keep those ugly thoughts to myself (most of the time)…

    • me says:

      Vanessa almost looks like when he played the mad hatter in Alice in Wonderland, doesnt she????

  14. Evie says:

    noooooooo, please. This is so sad.

  15. Olli says:

    Never really been a fan of his. In the last years it seamed he was making movies just because he could collect a big pay check. And most of the movies were just terrible. Just shows you money alone does not really make you happy.

  16. Emma says:

    Yet I got ripped apart on this site for the mere mention of him being in the vacinity of another woman when I met him. Whatever!

  17. Bubulle says:

    If anything I can see him going back with Kate Moss, I know she’s married but Kate’s relashionships have all been rocky.

  18. Gabrielle says:

    I love him. I’m pretty sure Angelina Jolie would leave Brad in a second for Johnny.

    • Dani says:

      Nah, Jolie and Pitt seem pretty solid. That would be interesting though. Hollywood bedhopping…

    • polk8dot says:

      Seriously? Angie would leave Brad in a sec for THIS???
      Yeah, because what woman in her right mind would stick with a dedicated family man who adores her, finds her incredibly sexy, especially in pregnancy, loves all their kids and makes them a priority, tries to spend as much time together with her as possible, is socially-conscious, volunteers money, time and effort for charity and local causes (i.e. New Orleans), and on top of that has an undeniable CRAZY chemistry with her, oh and looks like a sun-kissed golden greek god, ripped in abs and with arms like a safe harbor??
      Why would she,if she can have instead an aging rocker-wannabe; a pudgy, bloated drunk and drug addict, who chases any tail that crosses his path, parties with strippers and ho-s, prefers to spend majority of his time away from you and your kids, takes a bath once a month (at best – yuck!), smokes and chews baccy, and has a body of an overgrown doughy teenager with fat spilling out of his sleeves instead of muscles, and spends his life chasing after the perpetual Peter Pan complex.

      Right, any sane woman would have no problme making a choice between the two – and you think she would choose Depp?????

    • Julia says:

      Really ?

      How come that Jolie has NEVER, EVER leave a man for another one ? She has left men for singlehood but in my memory has never do it to pursuit another partner.

      Why would she does it for the first time for an immature, non intelligent, drunkard, whose only hobbies is to get drunk with Keith Richards and amassing materialistic goods and islands by filming stupid sequels all the time ?

  19. Lois says:

    Obviously hes pining for Angie. After all the tabs did say that they were all over each other.
    I find it hard to believe that the tabs havent made this connection yet.

  20. txvxf says:

    But I thought they had some superfantasticawesome relationship that was so lifelong committed that a piece of paper would just cheapen it?

    • mln76 says:

      Oh please ! Being married for 30 odd years didnt keep the Goverator from having babies with the maid and Wil and Jada may be breaking up. These two have been together over a decade for a Hollywood relationship that’s deep. It’s lasted longer than both of Brit-Brit’s marriages, Pamela Anderson& Kid Rock or Rick Solomon, and Kim Lardassian combined.. If they break up its sad and to the kids and each adult involved it would be no different than an actual divorce.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Sorry but what are you saying? That if they had gotten *Officially Married* that they wouldn’t break up?

      • txvxf says:

        Not saying that at all – I’m pointing out that just a few years ago, Depp made SUCH a big deal about how having a piece of paper that said they owned each other was ridiculous.

  21. Meg says:

    obviously penelope is married though

  22. Ramie says:

    I love Johnny, but I imagine he is very difficult to be in a relationship with. Married or not, nothing lasts forever.

    • nova2 says:

      Finally! A realistic perspective. All you fairy-tale people need a dose of reality and it looks like you’re going to get it…and the pitifully hopeful observation that radaronline is owned by Star or whatever it was is just weepy! I hope that they remain kind to each other for the sake of their children and find happiness with other people.

  23. madpoe says:

    Ok ok no one wants Johnny so I’ll come collect him from the streets.

  24. ladybert62 says:

    Johnny could improve his appearance – he is starting to look like Mr. Pitt – messy and dirty.

    I also never though Vanessa was pretty.

    If this is true, then it explains his recent bad public behavior.

    Hopefully, he will realize what he is losing if he continues and he will clean himself up and go home.

  25. really says:

    Johnny Depp is such a precious bitty. So it does not surprise me if he can not stay married, he so delicate yet somehow bitchy, meowwwwww.

  26. Birdix says:

    Amber looks like she really does mind the eau de Johnny, and is twisting her biscuits away from him.

  27. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Johnny was so good in 21 Jump Street, Whats eating Gilbert Grape, Donnie Brasco those pirates movies I can’t sit through, so boring. Johnny might want to think about retiring before he makes a mockery of himself ala Madonna.

  28. Annette says:

    All couples have problems from time to time. They come through it – if there is a problem. Remember this is pure speculation. Headlines sell magazines. Do not believe everything you read – especially when the source is unknown. It could be fabricated.

  29. Jen34 says:

    I hope this isn’t true. I get the feeling that Vanessa and the kids ground him. I think if they split, the papparazzi are going to go all Brangelina on him. It won’t be pretty.

  30. Susan says:

    Vanessa has kept Johnny on the straight and narrow. Without her he is and has always been a boozer and out of control. He really is not a very good man. She is probably tired of it. Personally I didn’t think it would last – if there is no commitment through marriage it really means that one of them will want out one day, or else why not get married?

    • Lucky Charm says:

      Do you mean the same way Kim Kardashian committed to Kris Humphries by marriage & not wanting out of it?

  31. Lexi says:

    You know, I never really adored Johnny Depp but I also never disliked him either… But reading his interviews lately, he sounds like a MAJOR asshole. Being a huge Vanessa Paradis fan, I’m curious as to what she saw in him. He has lost all his appeal to me… and it doesn’t help that he’s always groomed like a homeless person as of late.

  32. jen says:

    His Peter Pan syndrome/hipster act has grown tiresome.

  33. Embee says:

    He seems like a depressed person self-medicating with alcohol. Not a good combo.

    Vanessa Paradis is so unique looking that she is bound to be polarizing. I find her absolutely irresistable. Cannot stop looking at that amazing face. “Pretty”? No. Compelling? Hell yes!

  34. Adrien says:

    Nice photos of Adam Ant.

    • Lushus L. says:

      Too funny! I met Adam Ant years ago. Actually, I served him cocktails and forgot his goldfish crackers. He was so nice!

  35. mmf says:

    Are you posters all about 25 or something? Mr Depp and Mr Pitt both look very well for their age. At the old age of 49, I would hit it. LMAO.

    • mln76 says:

      I know right. They both look better than your average 35 yr olds.

      • Bubulle says:

        I know plenty of 35 years old and more who look better than his two. Plus they seem to have poor personnal hygiene not really attractive.

  36. foozy says:

    grrrreat! never thought we’d be finally rid of vanessa!

  37. Jessica says:

    He’s 48. BY the time they split and he is dating again, he’ll be 50, most likely. So we won’t get to see a 40-something Depp in the dating world. He may as well be 50 already. That said, I hope they don’t split.

    • lak says:

      Have you heard of Mick Jagger or Jack Nicholson??? both 1000yrs old and still dating and impregnating,these are people Johnny idolises and or hangs out with. Why should his age stop him playing the field if this relationship breaks up.

      • Dani says:

        Lol at 1000 years old.

      • polk8dot says:

        @lak: @ ‘Have you heard of Mick Jagger or Jack Nicholson??? both 1000yrs old and still dating and impregnating,these are people Johnny idolises and or hangs out with’.
        And both are a laughing stock of any reasonable – i.e. non-fame horish – women. If that’s the best Depp has to aspire to, we may all feel sorry for him already. It’s only a tiny step removed from the parody that Heff became, and if Depp leaves Vanessa, he is going to end up on that track.

  38. Darlene says:

    I think they are together forever. I won’t believe they are breaking up until they actually DO.

  39. jc126 says:

    I hope they stay together, and I think Vanessa is compelling-looking. I do think it’s telling that they never married, however, after a decade plus and two children.

  40. Tweakspotter says:

    YESSSS!!!! Oh uuuh I mean…awe noooooo.

  41. Jules says:

    Depp may not look 49, but he DOES look like someone who is losing his mind- just look at that last pic.
    Howard Hughes, anyone?

  42. podzol says:

    Who knows if the story is true, but Vanessa Paradis is of the same ilk as Charlotte Gainsbourg for me: not the typical conventional looks but so unique and beautiful in a compelling manner. It’s a timeless look that’ll carry for ages, unlike the busty Malibu prototype à la Courtney Stodden.

  43. Gabrielle says:

    I don’t know if it’s true they’re breaking up. They were together with their kids on New Year’s. Plus, look at Johnny helping that old woman. It hardly looks like he was up to drunk, woman-cruising shennanigans on the biggest party night of the year.

  44. mymy says:

    do believe Johnny Depp feel for Angie. The way he acted at some of the red carpet events for the tourist seemed to convey this. I know the signs of a jealous woman. And Vanessa is no dummy. She read him the riot act and he listened. He stood away from Angie and Vanessa was not anywhere to be seen.
    Everyone said Johnny could not stand Angie and I think it was the exact opposite.Vanessa read her man right. Brad starting to dress like Depp is no coincidence either. Looks like it might have be reciprocated.

    That being said. Johnny seems so immature. He knows he is aging and the way he dresses will not translate well into mature age. He has no intention of not being handsome. The man tries so hard to act like he doesn’t care and it is the exact OPPOSITE. HE IS VERY INVESTED IN HIS LOOKS.
    It is very sad.Note to Johnny grow up and take it like a man

    Bugger being that famous. I like reading gossip blogs until somebody dies or a hot couple goes through a relationship crisis based on nothing – then my existence goes all blurry.

    Signed,
    Still drunk from last night

  46. Petunia says:

    But he looks and sounds so unhappy these days! Would anyone want to hang with that for long? His latest interviews seem petulant. He bangs on middle-America. He complains that his good roles are not appreciated. I get that he’s disappointed. But I also think that he’s got a classic midlife crisis going on and won’t be much fun to hang around with.

    And truthfully? He’s got kids, so I think it would be a shame for him to become a bachelor now. But that’s life these days.

  47. Erin says:

    I really really hope this isn’t true! I do love them together and I think they make a handsome couple :(

  48. Petunia says:

    And I agree, that dirty, greasy hair has GOT to go. I don’t like it on Brad, either. I don’t care how gorgeous a man is, if he’s not groomed, he is GROSS to me.

  49. Peanut says:

    I actually thought of these two when I was reading those exclusive Celebitchy blind items the other day… everyone thinks he parties but he’s secretly sober… and his girlfriend is the one with substance abuse problems? And their relationship is on the rocks because of it… I dunno. I just thought of them immediately.

  50. lucy2 says:

    I hope it’s not true, they have 2 kids together, and seemed to live a nice, peaceful life.
    I think he’s a good actor and I still like him, but he has been crabby and had foot in mouth disease lately.

  51. buckley says:

    I would love to see him and Winona again.
    I think she still looks great.

    But, are they living in L.A. now?
    So strange considering he always seemed to like France much better.

  52. whatevs says:

    colour me shocked.

  53. Ravensdaughter says:

    There was a recent interview with Winona-I think it was posted in CB; where she seemed very wistful about her first love Johnny.
    I have always thought of Vanessa as an overrated beauty-basically a French stick woman who dresses up nicely. I think they have run their course, really. If Johnny breaks up with her, he should provide well for Vanessa and the children, set up visitation like a married couple (I assume France has provisions for that, but I don’t know), and get on with his life with an American woman-maybe Winona-who knows.
    MY opinion, given my recent experiments with European men and how ultimately grating the whole culture clash became . At first the differences were so delightful, but then the relationship would continue and I would long for the comfort of someone who had grown up watching the same TV shows and reading the same books and who had at least a working understanding of the US political system before arguing with me about it.
    But, I digress. Bottom line-if he has substance abuse issues, those need to be solved first. He has to act like an adult and do the right thing by his family and any subsequent partner. For instance, Johnny has to respect Winona’s sobriety-we all know what happened when she went too far…well publicized legal mischief.
    Sort of a reverse Russell Brand-Katy Perry intervention before he goes on with anyone.

  54. Vanden says:

    Aww man what’s going on with him?

  55. NM9005 says:

    They’re not breaking up. I don’t see it happening. And they are together often, Depp and Paradis want it that way but just because there aren’t a gazillion “happy family” photo ops doesn’t mean they don’t see each other often. No. Just no. And if they split up, it won’t be in our faces either so these reports are funny at best.

  56. jim says:

    you would think depp would shower once in awhile. he wears fake glasses, sucks in his cheeks, and has no talent. no wonder the french love him. he also should buy deoderant, as he smells.

  57. Moreaces says:

    I can say that this would be a surprise to see these to split, they seem like a solid couple.. I cant say that about many other couples in hollywood.

    • polk8dot says:

      Sure they ‘seem’ like a solid couple. So did Tom & Nicole, Jada & Will Smith, John and Elizabethe Edwards, and Arnold and Maria Shriver, just to name a few…
      And then we found out that the schizms in their relationships were progressing and deepening for a while whilst we were all obliviously extolling their virtues as paragons of spousal morality and shining examples of the longevity of the coveted wedded bliss.

      Yeah, it sucks having your eyes opened for you…

  58. skuddles says:

    I suspect Depp is having a mid-life crisis – he’s pushing 50 after all. And he’s been a huge star much of his adult life… maybe he’s worried that he’s losing his appeal, his artistic edge, his coolness factor… something. Combine that with a whole lot of boozing over the years and I’d say the guy needs to find himself again. But I do hope him and Vanessa work through it – I always thought they made a very respectable couple.

    • whatevs says:

      he started showcasing silly signs of midlife crisis recently. and he was always worrying about his age. i remember back in the early to mid nineties he was celebrating his 30th birthday. and back then he was really emo lol. so they asked him how he felt and he said “i’m pushing 40 so how can i be happy?” i can see him obsessing about youth.

      • skuddles says:

        Ah interesting, I hadn’t read anything he said in the past about aging. I do know he’s the eternal peter pan of the zodiac – a Gemini, and they don’t take kindly to relinquishing their hold on youth. I know this to be true being one myself ;)

    • Eleonor says:

      I vote for the mid life crisis, which is kind of sad.

  59. Kate says:

    This makes me really sad. He seemed to have got his life together and to be happy, and he talked about how depressed he was before. He said once on an interview I saw that he couldn’t bear to watch Gilbert Grape because he was so depressed when it was made.

    I hope it works out for them, if true.

  60. lisa says:

    OMG how many ways can Brad and Angie be brought up in this thread. Seriously. They worked together what 2 years ago. LOL..

    Boy the power of the Jolie-Pitts is just astounding..

    Damn why are they mentioned in all these thread..

    Crazy.. crazy..

  61. Posy says:

    I agree with the poster who thought Vanessa had a grounding influence on Depp . . . at least until he caved to his mid-life crisis. Coincidentally, I believe this happened around the time he started palling around with Keith Richards. He always seemed to be unduly influenced by him. And let’s not forget his infatuation with Hunter S Thompson.
    People are stretching the Angelina angle; even if there was an attraction, can anyone imagine Angelina jeopardizing her justly earned reputation as a politically involved humanitarian and devoted wife and mother for someone so emotionally and physically busted? I don’t have a slavish devotion to any of these people (although I can gossip about them with ease), but I think Angelina is on an entirely different level and wouldn’t entertain the thought of a dalliance. I like Vanessa’s tough love approach and hope she stays strong. And who cares what she looks like? She is obviously talented and sexy. The French aren’t as shallow as we Americans can often be and they tend to value women for their sense of style, intelligence and sophistication, regardless of age or traditional standards of beauty.

      Yep, this:

      He does seem awfully insecure, I really hope they work it out if there is in fact any truth to this at all.

  62. Diane says:

    I think Johnny is wonderful….don’t believe it about him and VAnessa. They love each other and will work it out.

  63. maeir says:

    marion and guillaum carnet are awesome together

    and i love javier bardem and penelope together too

    jonny can date a string of hot unconventionally gorgeous models if he ever is single (but i hope he and vanessa stay together)

  64. ZenB!tch says:

    Whomever said Blake Lively is right. Only she would go after this shit. Penelope and Marion are in relationships, both are new moms and MOST IMPORTANTLY their careers are on the upswing. They don’t need this $hit. I don’t know who Amber is but I hope she doesn’t go there. She’s gorgeous she can do better. Blake well she’s no prize either and think of how much fun that would be to talk about.

  65. Jenny says:

    Isnt amber heard a lesbian? Sucks they may separate, 14 years is a long time… Still, there’s no point in sticking around if it’s just not working….

  66. Kosmos says:

    Listen folks, Vanessa is a wonderful person and is also talented…do not fault her. Couples have their problems. These two have been very happy for years, but issues can still arise anytime during a relationship…why are you talking about Penelope and Marion? These women acted alongside Depp, yes, but they have marriages and children of their own. Don’t be ridiculous! I hope whatever this couple is going through can be sorted out. If not, they will split up, sadly. I really like Vanessa and I wish them the best.

  67. Wow says:

    Vanessa is so beautiful. Looks like an angel.

    Depp is soon to be 50 years old (or is already, this Hollywood).

    50 years old men, do not attract young women.

    I find it odd that people would be talking about which young actresses would go after him.

    He is older now, and perhaps the older ladies would find that interesting.

  68. Ginger says:

    Johnny cleans up well…he always looks so great on film and he’s a fabulous, versatile actor. I think he comes across as intelligent and well read. However, I can’t help but keep in mind whenever I think he is attractive in a film that he’s a big smoker in real life…ewww! As many have already pointed out, he does look dirty and dresses like a homeless person on the red carpet. So, on film yes, in real life…nooooo! I hope if this rumor is true that Vanessa comes out of this with flying colors. Johnny has always seemed like he really loves his kids so I don’t see why he wouldn’t give Vanessa the support she deserves.

  69. janet says:

    Penelope Cruz and Marion Cotillard are newly mothers and happy with their lovers. and Amber Heard is lesbian

  70. Nanci says:

    If this is true, it’s very sad. I really thought they’d stay together forever.I feel bad for both of them and the kids. Still, like everything else…we’ll all get through this and so will they, one way or another. Life will go on.

  71. 0tree0 says:

    I would like to point out that the biggest stress on relationships like this is rumours. Gossip, press attention, prying etc. Please lets stop adding fuel to/ trying to start a fire.

    I personally think Depp is a wonderfully talented actor, dedicated to his family and deserving of some privacy and respect. Paradis is a fantastic woman in her own right, beauty is very subjective. Whatever your opinion of her appearance she is undeniably a beautiful person, not to mention successful.

    Oh and as for the personal hygine remarks, unless you have been close enough to touch his hair/ skin/ smell him etc. I think it is quite presumptuous to pass judgement.

    Let them sort out their problems with some dignity.

  72. laura says:

    to me johnny is still a hot guy he is almost 50 but he still got it more since he lost weight he is not ‘fat’ anymore, and no one ages better than johnny.
    vanessa is not only beautiful she is also attractive i cant keep my eyes off her, her beauty is so delicate she is also talented on her own and as someone said she is prettier when she moves watch her in her 2010/2011 acoustic concerts in youtube she looks so sexy and beautiful.
    and the joliepitt fans i dont understand what are they doing here, johnny didnt have chemistry with her i mean just watch the tourist their chemistry is so forced and false that ruined the movie :(

  73. clara says:

    they’re a really goodlooking couple johnny is handsome and sexy vanessa is angelic and attractive they are also in love i think this is just another rumour, their daughter lily asked her best friend to post on her facebook that johnny and vanessa are fine.
