There's been a lot of talk about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's engagement lately. Some think it's great; others are outraged. But what about Johnny's ex, Vanessa Paradis? How does she feel about all of this? After all, she and Johnny never got married, despite being together a long time and having two children together. Does she thinks it's odd/rude/mean that the father of her children is headed to the altar after such a brief courtship?
Actually, no. Not at all.
According to pals, Vanessa isn't bitter at all about Johnny and Amber's relationship. In fact, when Johnny called to share his news, "Vanessa wished him happiness." There's "no drama" at all between the two. He's doing his thing, she's doing hers.
Of course, no one but Vanessa and Johnny know what went wrong in their relationship, but on some level, regardless of what happened, it has to sting a little bit to hear that the person you were with for such a long time is engaged to someone he met shortly after the two of you broke up. Yes, Vanessa has a million and one things going for her -- the memories she shares with Depp; her children; her looks; money -- but that doesn't make her immune to feeling hurt. If she never felt that way, great! But if she did, and still managed to take the high road like she did -- the lady's nothing but class.
For Amber and Johnny's sake, I hope they go on to have a long, beautiful relationship together, but I'd be remiss if I didn't say it: Vanessa Paradis is going to be a tough act to follow.
How would you feel if you were Vanessa?
