I think many of us were surprised when we heard that Johnny Depp had split from his longtime love, and the mother of his 2 children, Vanessa Paradis. Johnny had kept relatively mum on the split but now that he’s promoting his new movie ‘The Lone Ranger‘ the actor sat down with Rolling Stone Magazine and opened up about the cause of the split;
“The last couple years have been a bit bumpy. At times, certainly unpleasant, but that’s the nature of breakups, I guess, especially when there are kiddies involved.”
“Relationships are very difficult. Especially in the racket that I’m in because you’re constantly away or they’re away and so it’s hard. It wasn’t easy on her. It wasn’t easy on me. It wasn’t easy on the kids. So, yeah. The trajectory of that relationship — you play it out until it goes, one thing leads to another. So for whatever reason that ceases, it doesn’t stop the fact that you care for that person, and they’re the mother of your kids, and you’ll always know each other, and you’re always gonna be in each other’s lives because of those kids. You might as well make the best of it.”
Well that sounds like a pretty mature way to deal with a break up if you ask me.
