And now she has admitted that the father of her two children is onboard to play Algren. "They're still writing the script but the idea would be amazing because it's such a beautiful story. You only know when you're really actually shooting," the Daily Express quoted Paradis as saying.
"My American Lover came along and it might happen just because the story is great and why not if we can, but we don't push things. Playing in front of one of the best actors in the world that we have and someone I know so well will be challenging. That''s why we don't run after it. But I don't know... why not?" she added.
Paradis and Depp have never officially worked together before.
London, (ANI): French actress Vanessa Paradis has confirmed she and partner Johnny Depp are considering playing Simone De Beauvoir and her lover Nelson Algren in an upcoming flick. The 'Joe Le Taxi' singer has been in talks to play the late writer/feminist in My American Lover for some time.
