It looks like this weirdness gave Depp the strength and ambition to become one of the greatest movie stars on earth. However, Vanessa Paradise, Johnny’s partner during the last 13 years and mother of their two kids, has everything to do with his transformation: “The most important thing is that Vanessa has made me not have to pretend any more about who I am. I feel comfortable with myself. My life is divided in two. In the time before I met Vanessa, I was searching for something. Since our time together I have found it. She keeps me calm. There were times when I was burning inside.”
If that’s not true love, then I don’t know what that is!
