Vanessa Paradis - Vanessa Paradis Pleases Herself

Vanessa Paradis doesn't want to "please everyone".

The French singer-and-actress - who has children Lily-Rose, 11, and seven-year-old Jack with partner Johnny Depp - was upset when she once heard a TV presenter criticise her vocal ability but learned to accept not everyone will enjoy her work.

She said: "A TV presenter was once talking about people he couldn't stand and one of them was me.

"He said my voice was too quiet; as a singer, that's a pretty bad thing to hear. But then you can't please everyone, and I don't want to."

The 38-year-old beauty - who shot to fame as a singer aged just 14 - has also spent time as a model for brands such as Miu Miu and Chanel, but doesn't think it overshadows her other work.

She revealed: "I started in music - and modelling and acting came later, so I don't think that side of things has made people in the music industry take me any less seriously.

"Anyway, I started at an age when I didn't look my best - I was only a teenager."
