Vanessa Paradis has been considering the afterlife following her split from Johnny Depp – and admits she would like to come back as a ‘really strong tree.’
The French songstress confirmed her separation from long term partner Depp in June, but rather than let the grass grow under her feet she’s been considering the possibility of an afterlife and who – or rather what – she would like to return as if it exists.
“I’d like to believe in it,” she told W Magazine. “It’s better to think there’s something else after than nothing, you know? But I don’t believe it exists, I’d like to think it exists.
“I think I’d love to be a tree. A strong one, like the baobab. Is it the baobab that has really strong roots? It seems indestructible.”
Despite enjoying a lengthy relationship with Depp – with whom she has two children – Vanessa says she is reluctant to believe in the term ‘soul mate.’
“The fact of putting a title on it, whether it’s your husband or your wife or your soul mate, then it seems like you know the end of the book,” she said. “And I don’t like to know the end of the book or the movie.
“But I mean it’s beautiful when one day someone tells you you’re their soul mate – it makes you feel good.”
