Elle MacPherson on Motherhood and Johnny Depp Wants Vanessa Back
22nd OF July 2012
Elle MacPherson says motherhood isn't always pleasant and Johnny Depp reportedly wants ex, Vanessa Paradis back after their recent split.
Elle Macpherson admits being a mother isn't always 'pleasant'. The supermodel raises sons Flynn, 14, and nine-year-old Cy - whose father is her former partner Arpad Busson - and she says having to crack the whip sometimes is necessary but it doesn't make her the most popular mum!
According to Sky News, The Body has said, 'My role as a parent is not the most pleasant one at times. I don't delegate that work so I get a lot of, 'I hate you, mum, you're the worst mother in the world because you're making me do homework when I don't have any.' I say, 'Cool, you're still sitting down for a little while and revising some of the more sticky subjects, or reading another chapter of your book, because a little a day goes a long way and avoids last-minute panic.'
'Then I get, 'But I don't need to, I don't have exams.' I say, 'I understand, so what did you do today?' Let's have a look at your books together and you can work out a plan for when you do have exams.' '
However, Elle, 48, believes her tough stance 'pays off' with her sons' school work. She added, 'I am the worst mother in the world, apparently, but the boys' dedication pays off.'
Johnny Depp is reportedly in the process of rekindling his relationship with ex, Vanessa Paradis. After a very public split and numerous rumours of actresses Johnny has been linked with, it seems he misses the mother of his children.
The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor has flown to the South of France in a bid to patch things up with the model and has given her an antique gold pendant bearing the message 'My heart is always with you.'
A source close to the couple - who were together for 14 years and had two children, Lily-Rose, 13, and 10-year-old Jack, together - told The Sun on Sunday newspaper, 'They are having a family holiday to show the kids they are still a strong family even if those two are split or not.
'But the fact he presented her with such a touching gift, it's almost as if they could make another go of things. Johnny wants to be with his family, he's a very family orientated man. His kids mean everything to him.
'What they need more than anything is to get together far away from Hollywood and that is what they are doing.'
Although they were never married, it had been claimed Vanessa was going to get $150 million from Johnny in a one-off payment. Since their split - which was confirmed in June following months of speculation - Johnny has been linked to actress Amber Heard. But that relationship is currently on hold.
Do you think Johnny and Vanessa will get back together?
