After 10 years of living as an “almost married” couple, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis plan to make it official. Life & Style reports the couple, who already have two children together, will marry this summer.
In the past, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star was reluctant to say “I do” again. Johnny married and divorced makeup artist Lori Anne Allison in the early ’80s and felt content with his current live-in arrangement. “For all intents and purposes, we are married.” But, he assured, “If she ever said, ‘Hey, let’s get hitched,’ I would do it in a second.”
An insider claims that’s just what happened. “Vanessa recently told Johnny that she would love to have a wedding,” a source close to the Paradis-Depp family told Life & Style. “Johnny loves Vanessa very much, and he said if that’s what would make her happy, then he’d marry her.”
The big event, which is set to take place June 14, will be a family affair. Johnny and Vanessa’s children, Lily-Rose, 8, and Jack, 6, “are really excited about it,” the insider revealed. “Actually the whole family is excited.
“They wanted to make it convenient for Johnny’s family in Florida,” so the nuptials will likely take place in Georgia’s Tybee Island, according to the source. “They’re going to send out invitations in a few weeks.”
Simon less bored with ‘Idol’ than beforeIf “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell looked disinterested earlier this season, it’s because he was. The show’s resident grump explained his malaise to the New York Post.
“It’s a reality show,” Simon said. “If you’re bored, you’re bored. If you’re not, you’re not. I can’t help it if I’m bored. Sometimes it’s mind-numbingly boring, and it shows on my face.”
Apparently, it’s the seemingly endless audition process that brings the gruff guy down. “It’s a long run during auditions. That’s the time that you’re most miserable.”
Simon assured the paper that his mood is on the upswing now that final eight contestants are taking their role in the show seriously and “trying harder.”
Dish on the flyWhen Charlie went to his watery grave on “Lost,” Dominic Monaghan lost more than a steady gig. Leaving the show’s Hawaiian shooting locale meant leaving behind his co-star and girlfriend of three years, Evangeline Lilly. After a brief split, Star reports the “Lost” loves are now back together. “They never stopped loving each other,” a source told the magazine. “They decided to take a break, but it was really hard on them both.” The couple remained in close contact and eventually realized they were meant to be together. “It was as simple as that.” … He’s a well-respected actor in his own right, but Ewan McGregor finds his acting chops lacking when compared to Daniel Day-Lewis. “There’s a depth to (Daniel’s) work that means I’ve got a long way to go,” the actor admitted in a quote posted to Female First. “I want to make films like his recent movie, ‘There Will Be Blood,’ epic, great films.”
