Costar Marin Gerrier, the seven-year-old actor with Down syndrome who plays Jacqueline’s son, Laurent, appears in almost all of Paradis’s scenes. He made for an incomparable acting partner, delivering true surprises upon which she built her performance. “He made me a better actor,” she says with adoration. “And the grace, the truth, and the power of this little boy...It just pushed us to be on a higher level. It is a characteristic of Down syndrome to be very demonstrative with tenderness, with kisses and hugs—everything is pretty much like that. It’s totally pure. It’s not damaged with a way of thinking. It’s very, very honest and very generous.” Vanessa Paradis on cafe de flore
  • She rejected Pedro Almodóvar
  • Won the César (the french equivalent of the Oscar) at the age of 18 for the movie "Noce Blanche"
  • Johnny Depp about having a family with Vanessa: "It took me a while to figure out what I wanted and then I met the woman who made me see what I was missing. But raising a family and spending so much time with our kids is what has really had the most calming influence on me. They became my focus and it put things into perspective. Nothing makes me happier than watching Vanessa and my kids and just realising that they’re my world. It’s pure joy.”
  • “I’m glad I didn’t have children until Vanessa and I got together. I think when you are young you are hoping that this person will be the right one, the one you are going to be in love with forever but sometimes you want that so much you create something that isn’t really there. I went through a number of relationships when I was younger. I was very young when I married Lori Anne and probably it was because I was trying to create a situation. We married in 1983 but it didn’t last very long and that was probably because I wasn’t ready to handle such a commitment. I then got engaged to Jennifer Grey, Winona Ryder and Kate Moss but it wasn’t until I met Vanessa that life started to be real.” - Johnny Depp.
  • Older sister of Alysson Paradis.
