Vanessa Paradis is in "pain" following her split from Johnny Depp.
The French singer - who is promoting her latest film 'Cornouaille' - still refuses to talk about the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor since the pair broke up in June following a 14-year relationship, but she insists she "wants" to be in her current situation.
She told French Elle: "I don't want to talk about him. Who said that artists should sell their soul, expose everything about themselves?
"It's my duty to promote this movie, and my albums, but can you imagine what it feels like to see people making a business out of your pain. What's happened to us is our concern.
"I don't have the recipe for happiness, but I think the engine is simply having the desire. It's not feeling obliged or forced or repeating yourself.
"I hate, for example, whenever you hear someone say, 'You have work at being a couple'. No, you have to want to be there. And for me, I want to be right where I am right now."
While Vanessa - who has two children Lily-Rose, 13, and 10-year-old Jack with Johnny - is happy for her kids to follow in the pair's footsteps and forge a career in showbusiness, she hopes Lily-Rose doesn't become famous at a young age and sacrifice having a normal childhood.
The brunette beauty - who shot to fame with hit song 'Joe le taxi' in 1987 at the age of 14 - added: "I can tell you that if they decide to launch themselves into this kind of career it will be a good thing for music.
"For my part, although I do not regret what I did, I'd prefer that my daughter takes the time to learn, and, especially, to live her childhood thoroughly."
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis reportedly had "blazing arguments" before they split.
The former model and aspiring singer is said to have resented her partner's successful career, causing huge tension in their relationship.
A friend told website UsMagazine.com: "They'd have blazing fights. Vanessa would take her frustrations out on him. [Johnny, in turn], started to drink heavily."
According to the source, 39-year-old Vanessa, pushed the actor to take up roles which went on the be a huge success, such as 2003's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl'.
The insider continued: "Vanessa started to feel like she'd sacrificed her career for his.
"Nothing Johnny did was ever good enough for Vanessa. When he was working, she wasn't happy. And when he wasn't working, he was called a slob for not doing enough for the kids and her family."
The two are parents to 13-year-old Lily-Rose and 10-year-old Jack and apparently always put their children's needs first.
The friend continued: "It broke Johnny's heart that the family he loves so much was becoming fractured."
The last time the former couple was photographed together on the red carpet was in 2010 and Johnny was apparently "heartbroken" when their relationship began to come to an end.
On June 19, Johnny's representative released a statement explaining that they had "amicably separated."
The source added: "Johnny was heartbroken but they agreed the kids' lives shouldn't be affected. That's why they didn't announce it."
Johnny Depp split up with Vanessa Paradis because he was bored with her.
The Hollywood hunk was reportedly "miserable" in his relationship with his partner of 14 years and ended things because there was no longer a spark between them.
A source told RadarOnline.com: "Johnny didn't want to be with Vanessa anymore. They had grown so far apart, and he wanted to be free and try new things. He was bored senseless with her, being with Vanessa was making him miserable.
"The spark had gone, and there was nothing left. Johnny just wants more from life and believes Vanessa deserves to be happier too. He's not embroiled in some hot and heavy new romance and he has no plans to jump straight into something straight away, but he is keen to have some fun again."
The 49-year-old actor and Vanessa, 39 - who have two kids, Lily-Rose, 13, and 10-year-old Jack, together - are thought to have been on the rocks for some time and Johnny is relieved it is finally out in the open.
The source added: "Johnny has wanted this relationship to end since last year. He has tried to get out of this for a long time.
"Johnny was not handling keeping their split secret too well, it was difficult for him to carry on a farce, so now that it is out in the public he is feeling a lot happier about the situation."
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have split up.
The couple - whose 14-year relationship has been rumored to be in trouble for several months - have confirmed they have "amicably" parted ways and appealed for privacy for the sake of their two children, Lily-Rose, 13, and 10-year-old Jack.
A statement from their representatives read: "Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated. Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children."
News of the split comes just a month after it was claimed the couple - who have not appeared in public together for over a year - were "working on" getting their relationship back on track.
A source said recently: ''For the first time in a long time, he is talking about her. They both want to make it work.''
And the 'Dark Shadows' star recently blasted untrue speculation about his relationship being over.
He said: ''The rumors are not true. They are absolutely not true.'
''No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite. I can't say enough about it not being over.''
Vanessa Paradis, Johnny Depp's piece attended the premiere of Cafe De Flore in Paris, France on January 23, 2012. According to the Daily Mail, the French beauty said: "You know, when I eat three peas, I'm pregnant. When I visit a city, I'm buying a house. In the winter I separate, in the summer I marry. It's been fifteen years since I've been getting married every year. In addition I have to answer all these rumors!
Hmm, no idea.
