Johnny Depp is trying to work things out with Vanessa Paradis according to reports.

The 'Dark Shadows' actor has continuously denied splitting from his longtime girlfriend and mother of his children but speculation has remained as to whether they are still together.

A source told E! News: ''For the first time in a long time, he is talking about her. They both want to make it work.''

Johnny has been filming 'The Lone Ranger' in New Mexico and returning to Los Angeles most weekends to be with his 39-year-old partner and their two children Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, 10.

Apparently the pair have been living separate lives for months, but he shot down rumours they had parted ways on the red carpet for the premiere of his new film in London.

He told The Sun: ''The rumours are not true. They are absolutely not true.''

Johnny continued: ''No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite. I can't say enough about it not being over.''

The 44-year-old star has been with singer Vanessa for 14 years but he was linked to his 'Rum Diary' costar Amber Heard earlier this month.
