Even though she doesn’t want to talk about him. Go figure.

In a recent interview with Elle magazine, Vanessa was asked about her breakup with long-time partner, Johnny Depp, and after a little insistence, she obliged. To Elle, Vanessa said:

“I don’t want to talk about him. Who said that artists should sell their soul, expose everything about themselves? … It’s my duty to promote this movie, and my albums, but can you imagine what it feels like to see people making a business out of your pain. What’s happened to us is our concern. Who said that artists should sell their soul, expose everything about themselves? … It’s my duty to promote this movie, and my albums, but can you imagine what it feels like to see people making a business out of your pain. What’s happened to us is our concern. I don’t have the recipe for happiness, but I think the engine is simply having the desire. It’s not feeling obliged or forced or repeating yourself. I hate, for example, whenever you hear someone say: ‘You have work at being a couple’. No, you have to want to be there. And for me, I want to be right where I am right now.”

So, in a nutshell, it sounds like Vanessa is in a decent place right now, and if she’s still aching over the fact that she and Johnny are no more, it’s definitely not showing, and for that? I have to give her some major, major credit, because wow. These guys were just together forever. Sometimes things work out this way for many reasons, and not entirely selfish ones, I suppose, huh?

  • So she’s just NOW finding out that being a celebrity (in Europe) isn’t just hanging out in/on your boyfriend’s mansions, island, yachts, etc? She’s almost 40 and she is caught completely flat-footed when the down side of fame comes calling. Well, I’ll tell you what I’M calling and that’s BULLSH&T, ugly girl! If it’s all just too much to bear, she can always drop beneath the radar any time she feels like it. God knows, she would be doing my eyesight a favor. Quit whining.

  • You act like someone is forcing you to read her thoughts on the matter. At least she’s handling it in a rather mature manner, unlike your above reaction.

  • I don’t have to read her thoughts. It’s all out there in black and white. Come on, don’t you get even a little bit sick when some whiney celebrity grouses about how hard fame is on them? Some of their self-pitying replies makes me want to throw a pie in her face. Just what did she expect to happen after the break-up? And I’m the one who is not acting in a mature manner???? It ain’t me who’s the one getting all nobless oblige and pouty. She put herself in the celebrity light and she needs to quit whining. Believe me, this isn’t the 1st or the last time she’s going to have to answer that question!

  • can we please, please talk about the spice girls? please? did anyone else watch their performance at the olympics closing ceremonies?
    and miley cyrus’ new hair! i’ve spent the whole day randomly checking the site and i’ve been waiting for some spice girls/miley cyrus posts! i’m dying here guys….

  • and i know i can go check other gossip sites but really, i don’t bother because EB is by far my favourite and i’m such a staunch loyalist.
