Depp Reveals Secret Of True Love

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN star JOHNNY DEPP has urged lovers to respect one and other if they want a long and happy relationship.

The actor has been with actress VANESSA PARADIS for eight years and insists their relationship is just as special now as when they first met.

He says, "Trust, have fun and respect for one another. Respect for one another's privacy. Respect for what the other person does in their chosen profession. And obviously a whole lot of love.

"Vanessa was like a bold of lightning. She has success on her own terms and when we met it wasn't like she was anything other than this sweet, cool, funny girl.

"I'd never experienced anything like that before. She gave me these two beautiful kids.

I THINK TRUE LOVE IS THE MOST WONDERFUL THING OF ALL, BUT THIS JOHNNY DEPP AND VANESSA THING HAS ME CONFUSED, TO ME HE IS NOT HAPPY! NOT REALLY! I ALSO THINK THAT THIS VANESSA LADY IS HOLDING HIM DOWN BY THE WAY OF TWO CHILDREN! SHE DOES NOT WANT TO MARRY HIM, I THINK SHE IS WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO COME HER WAY BETTER IN THE MONEY WISE THEN DEPP IS! SOME DAY THIS LOVE AFFAIR WILL END! IF YOUR TRUELY AND HONESTLY HAPPY YOU DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP REPEATING IT...SO JUST WHO IS MR. DEPP TRYING TO CONVICE THE WORLD OR HIS SELF WHEN IT COMES TO THIS LOVE AFFAIR OF VANESSA? SURELY IT IS NOT TO ME!

Come over to Louisiana Johnny. I will show you what true love is! You know how fans are, haha, but seriously Johnny: I hope you are happy and your kids are beautiful. Now that is true love, the love that my son and I share, well, there is no other love like that. Kids are wonderful. And in a relationship it is all about choices and compromise and talking. You have to chose to be with that person and you have to chose to work it out. COMMUNICATION: talk talk talk. It won't work if you don't talk. Your partner should be your best friend. Would you talk to your partner like you would talk to your best friend? Would you say mean things to your best friend that you say to your partner? And take some time to do something with your partner that you haven't done since courting each other. Then after that take some time away from each other to keep your individuality. Make sure to do things with your other friends too. However, my partner is my best friend so we enjoy hanging out with each other. Actually, we don't have nearly as much fun with out each other! We are such good friends first that Johnny, if you come to me in LA he would understand!, LOL!

i dont know what to think with depp not marrying vanessa... i know it's what they want but.. isnt it immoral to have children when youre not married? i thought depp is an old fashioned guy but how come his principles are like these? i dont want to question them but i cant help it. if its rude, im so sorry... but anyways, yeah vanessa is not that ugly and i believe what depp said, she's sweet, funny and all. compatibility and happiness aint enough for relationship to last... marriage is from god, true lovers should do that. their love should be blessed so for them to have a smooth sailing journey... if storm will come for sure, with god's blessing.. they can overcome it. wish johnny and vanessa a happy life! ..and their children of course.

The comment from the person who said Johnny looks unhappy in every picture taken with Vanessa is absolutely RIGHT!! He never looks happy in any pictures with her and she always looks miserable. I can hardly believe he's happy with her. He loves his kids, but I don't think he really wants to marry her because he doesn't love her enough to marry her.
