Hollywood star Johnny Depp and his French girlfriend
Vanessa Paradis have a great relationship because they spend time apart.
The French actress-and-singer, who has been dating the Pirates Of the Caribbean star since 1998, truly believes that absence makes the heart grow fonder, and says the couple appreciate the time they do have together when they are not busy working, Marie Claire magazine reported.
"The fact that we're not together every day plays a big part in keeping our relationship stable. And then we also have a lot of respect and admiration for each other. We understand that if we want our relationship to continue, we must give each other space, allow each other to go off on our own and trust each other," Paradis said.
Paradis, who has two children, Lily-Rose, 11, and Jack, eight, with Depp, also revealed the 47-year-old hollywood star "sums up romantic" and says he is the most wonderful man.
The 37-year-old beauty added, "I think he is magnificent. Truly magnificent."
