Johnny Depp on split: Our kids were'‘incredibly understanding'
"When you have children, there is no room for lies, no room for anything but the truth. Anything other than that is a bad example, I believe." That's how Johnny Depp looked at things when it came time to tell his kids, Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, that things were over between him and their mom, Vanessa Paradis, after 14 years. "We were just very truthful with them, and they were just incredibly understanding, incredibly accepting. I was extremely proud of them, the way they dealt with it," he told Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning" Monday (via People).
On a lighter note, he also discussed the prospect of getting older. "I suppose the only thing at 50 you can really start to look forward to is just total irresponsibility," he said with a smile in reference to his 50th birthday on June 9. "As you get older, you can just sit in a chair, wear anything you want, you know you can walk down; old people dress cool. You know they wear sweatpants. The elderly have it down."
