“I never found myself needing that piece of paper. Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don’t need somebody to say, okay you’re married… If Vanessa wanted to get hitched, why not… But the thing is, I’d be so scared of ruining her last name. She’s got such a good last name.”
– Johnny Depp, making the whole world swoon while discussing his lady, Vanessa Paradis.
Now there are a good amount of guys who will pull the “no, baby, you want to get engaged? What’s a ring, what’s a piece of paper when we’ve got love?” And a lot of times, that kind of thinking reads more like “I like you and everything, but I’d like to keep my options open,” but sometimes it’s true, and I think this is the case with Johnny Depp. I mean, it’s not like he’s playing the field, and he and Vanessa seem to have a nice little family, right?
Or maybe my mind is just twisted from growing up on Edward Scissorhands, Cry-Baby, and Benny and Joon and I am incapable of seeing Johnny Depp as anything other than a beautifully tragic hero. That’s a strong possibility.
