French actress Vanessa Paradis
has opened up about her recent split from Johnny Depp, saying
that she is happy with her life today.
The former couple, who raise two kids together, announced
they were parting ways in June after 14 years together,
reported Access Hollywood.
"I don't have the recipe for happiness, but I think the
engine is simply having the desire. It's not feeling obliged
or forced or repeating yourself. I hate, for example, whenever
you hear someone say, 'You have work at being a couple'. No,
you have to want to be there. And for me, I want to be right
where I am right now," she said.
The actress, who is promoting her new film Cornouaille,
was initially hesitant to speak of her prior relationship with
"I don't want to talk about him. Who said that artists
should sell their soul, expose everything about themselves?
It's my duty to promote this movie, and my albums, but can you
imagine what it feels like to see people making a business out
of your pain," she added.
