Vanessa Paradis - Vanessa Paradis: 'I Don't Believe In Soulmates'

Vanessa Paradis does not believe in soulmates.

The French actress and singer has been in a relationship with Johnny Depp for 14 years, but has a problem with the terminology of ''soulmate'' because it feels like there is nothing else to strive for.

She said: ''I have a problem with the term soulmates, it scares me a lot. It's such a strong statement - it's like a marriage contract.

''I believe in love and I want to believe that it lasts forever. But I'm like everyone else, you have to take things a day at a time and you can never know what comes next. All you can do is hope and love and live.

''When you say, 'This is my soulmate,' it's almost like saying, 'Well, OK, we're done here.' ''

However, Vanessa - who has two children, Lily-Rose, 12 and Jack, 10, with the 'Dark Shadows' actor - does believe strongly in the idea of love because it is ''universal''.

She told Stylist magazine: ''It's everything that drives us universally. What love makes us do, what love makes us feel, what we do for love and we do because of love - completely.

''Love hurts and love burns. This is why it's so powerful - it's such a universal feeling.''
