Vanessa Paradis Is Very Nervous About Acting Alongside Johnny Depp

Vanessa Paradis is still deliberating about teaming up with her American lover, Johnny Depp, for the upcoming Lasse Hallström–directed film, My American Lover. Paradis is set to play feminist writer Simone De Beauvoir and Depp her macho American man Nelson Algren, based on A Transatlantic Love Affair. But Paradis says the project is still in development and she's scared: "They’re still writing the script, but it's a beautiful story," she said. "I don’t know that I could do it ... 'My American Lover' came along and it might happen just because the story is great ... [But] playing in front of one of the best actors in the world and someone I know so well will be challenging." It worked for Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, not so much. [ONTD]
