Johnny Depp, an amazing actor, deep thinker, and all around creative genius, has shared his views on the Meaning of Life, along with some really deep thoughts over the years. Is Johnny still the same man Vanessa Paradis fell in love with over a decade ago?
It’s almost funny how differently Johnny Depp has been portrayed in the media, recently, than what came out in various interviews during his relationship with Vanessa Paradis. None of his friends have come out saying he has really changed, though. Has the Jack Sparrow actor of Pirates of the Caribbean changed?
Was Vanessa Paradis living with a different sort of man than the one who married Amber Heard?
Johnny Depp’s lawsuit and counter-suit with his former financial managers have brought out some really ugly sounding accusations on both sides. Depp has accused his managers of “gross mismanagement and sometimes outright fraud,” according to Post-Crescent.
In retaliation, Johnny Depp’s money managers have attempted to reveal his financial business to the public in a negative light. They claim the Pirates of the Caribbean star made poor investments including the purchase of a French Village for Vanessa Paradis. They imply that he was spending money wildly, claiming he went through $2 million each month.
Johnny Depp does, in fact, own a small 200-year-old French village on 39 acres. It’s not some extravagant purchase, though, nor is it a recent one. The 39 acres would be like a very small farm, and the French village could be compared to any restored historic farm of the same age in terms of luxury and the number of buildings.
Johnny Depp’s lovely historic French village served as the home where he raised two children with Vanessa Paradis. It is a really homey kind of home. It is quite rustic, historically preserved and nothing like the luxurious homes of most Hollywood stars.
Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis, and the children loved their French village home, and it provided the peace and quiet the Pirates of the Caribbean actor needed when he was not working. Likewise, the French Village needed Johnny. It was in rough shape when Depp bought it and in need of restoration.
Johnny Depp’s purchase of the historic French village, which he lovingly restored and decorated himself, isn’t really outlandish. It was a home for Vanessa Paradis and the children they shared. Perhaps it is time to recall the wisdom of Depp, from past interviews. Maybe it is time to question the alleged changes.
Has Johnny changed a lot since 2013 when he broke up with Vanessa Paradis?
Johnny Depp on Finding Paradise with Vanessa Paradis
Johnny Depp spoke with People before the split with Vanessa Paradis. Opening up in rare fashion, Johnny explained what life with Vanessa was like for him. The meaning of life with Vanessa Paradis was different than anything that came before.
Johnny Depp found happiness and a sense of purpose, as well as being able to just be. He was content in the French village home with Vanessa Paradis according to People.
“[Life with Vanessa Paradis] has given me everything. A marvelous family and also an equilibrium which I missed enormously. With Vanessa and the kids, we live in a sort of little village in the south and I have the impression of being in paradise. It’s a property of about 30 acres and you know what I do there? Absolutely nothing.”
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis were happy together for 14 years and raised two children together. The French village was the perfect place for Johnny and French actress Vannessa Paradis to bond.
“There are times when I don’t leave the property for three months at a time. [It is like] being on another planet. When I wake up I go look at my garden. I go see if my vegetables are growing if certain flowers have started to bloom.”
