“My American Lover”

JOHNNY DEPP AND VANESSA PARADIS: LOVERS AND COSTARS

The party’s always better when Johnny Depp shows up. Johnny and his partner Vanessa Paradis looked adorable at the Chanel soiree in Cannes. The pair are preparing to costar in their first movie together called “My American Lover.” It’s the story of the French feminist Simone de Beauvoir and her affair in 1949 with American writer Nelson Algren. Hard-boiled Algren lived in Chicago and wrote about “pimps, prostitutes, drug addicts, politicians, and hoodlums.” In 1950 he became famous for writing “The Man with the Golden Arm.” Sounds like a role Johnny can sink his teeth into.
