Depp Loves Rural French Life

JOHNNY DEPP credits his decision to set up home in France with allowing him to lead a normal life when he isn't making movies.

The CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY star, who lives with longterm lover VANESSA PARADIS and their children, spends much of his time in Los Angeles and on location - but he always looks forward to returning to his simple life in a French village.

He says, "France has given me the opportunity to live a basic and simple life with my kiddies, a life or normalcy.

"The nearest village has 1,500 people. I can take a ride into the village and go to the little local bar and have a coffee with my girl, and people say, 'Hello Johnny, how are you?'

"I'm not looking round the periphery for the paparazzi.

"You drive back home and walk in the vegetable garden with your kids and have a nice lunch - you know, real life, real life, not any of the hoopla that surrounds the industry here."

I feel the same way. After working so hard everybody needs a nice rest.Having people taking your pictures all the time and don't take no for a answer. Besides he's the one taking care of his family not us and he can choose where ever he wants to live so Leave Him Alone.

NO, no, that's not real life. That's a dream life I've always wanted to have. I have to admit that I'm just a little envious. If I ever get a visit from Ed at PCH (LOL)I'm going to find a place like that to live out the rest of my life with my family.

i cant blame him for wanting to get away from all the hoopla that the fast-paced industry can bring. all the photographers want to do is to disturb you all the time. at least there (in France) he and his family can be themselves. when he isnt shooting, i would leave too.... and just get away from it all!!!!!!
