Many of you are bored of some stars association with one brand.
Vanessa Paradis and Chanel is one union I will never grow tired of. They are made for each other.
The French actress/singer wears Chanel on yet another cover. This time for Marie Claire’s August 2010 UK edition.
You may recognise her Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 dress since Carey Mulligan wore it on the red carpet to the BAFTAs Nominees Party earlier this year.
Vanessa talks about Johnny Depp, how they have managed to stay together for over 10 years and how the fact being apart helps their relationship, she also goes on to speak about their kids and her and Johnny Depp working together.
Here are some extracts from her interview:
On how she keeps the passion alive when she’s been with the same man [Johnny Depp] for 12 years: “First of all, you have to be lucky enough to find the right person. Next, the fact that we’re not together every day plays a big part in keeping our relationship stable. And then we also have a lot of respect and admiration for each other. We understand that, if we want our relationship to continue, we must give each other space, allow each other to go off on our own, and trust each other.”
On asking partner Johnny Depp’s advice about scripts: “When it comes to planning, yes. Otherwise, very rarely. In fact, we don’t really speak a lot about work when we’re together. We just try to organise ourselves so we can spend as much time as possible together.”
On what she most admires about Johnny Depp: “I could make an endless list of all the things I admire about him, but above all I admire his immense loyalty. I love watching him when he’s thoughtful or involved in something. I love observing him when he is talking to people. I love seeing how he deals with situations… I could go on and on, tell you I admire him as an actor, as a father and as the man he is for me. But more than anything, I admire him as a person. Not only when he is talking to me or his mother, but as a person in the world, in all kinds of situations. I think he is magnificent. Truly magnificent.”
On whether they’ll make a film together: “A few years ago we were both going to be on the set of Terry Gilliam’s Don Quixote film but shooting stopped. Frankly, the thought of filming with him would scare me to death. It’s not that I don’t want to, but I would be frightened that I wouldn’t be up to his standard because he’s so talented. And I don’t know if I would be able to lie in front of him.”
