Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis had one of the best relationships in recent Hollywood history. They were so in love and seemed to bring out the best in each other. Depp had quite the reputation before meeting Vanessa. He’d been through several engagements and it really seemed like no one would be able to tame him, but Paradis did. Since they were such a great couple, we have 10 things that you probably didn’t know about their 14-year relationship:

10. Meeting

The Oscar-nominated actor first met the French model/musician back in 1994 at a mutual friend’s house. At the time, he was dating Kate Moss, who he dated up until 1998, but Vanessa was immediately attracted to him anyway. “He made a big impression on me and during my years of solitude, he never left my thoughts,” she told Hello magazine.


9. Meeting Again and Falling in Love

Vanessa and Johnny met again four years late in Paris in 1998 when he was filming the Roman Polanski movie The Ninth Gate. He was having dinner with colleagues at the Costes Hotel and she was sitting with a group of friends. According to both Johnny and Vanessa, when they saw each other, this time it was like love at first sight. “I saw her across a room and I thought: ‘What’s happening to me?’” he said. “It was one of those instant connections. You have this feeling – I can’t really explain what it was.” He then invited her over and they talked for two hours.
