Despite their 12 years and two children together, Johnny Depp says he has no intentions of marrying his French girlfriend Vanessa Paradis.
"I never found myself needing that piece of paper," 47-year-old Depp told TV's "Extra" of why he hasn't wed the mother of his kids, Lily-Rose, 11, and Jack, 8. "Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don't need somebody to say, 'OK, you're married.'"
That said, "The Tourist" star, who was wed to makeup artist Lori Anne Allison from 1983 to 1986, and was reportedly previously engaged to actresses Sherilyn Fenn, Jennifer Grey, Winona Ryder, as well as model Kate Moss, says he would walk down the aisle with Paradis, 37, if she asked him to put a ring on it.
"If Vanessa wanted to get hitched, why not," he says. "But the thing is, I'd be so scared of ruining her last name. She's got such a good last name."
