Vanessa Paradis has confessed she has reservations about acting opposite her partner Johnny Depp.

The 37-year-old French singer and actress, who has Lily Rose, 11, and eight-year-old Jack with the Hollywood heartthrob has been cast opposite Depp in a film about Simone de Beauvoir's affair with the American writer Nelson Algren.

Vanessa told The Daily Telegraph: "I don't know if I can act facing Johnny, to tell you the truth, we've made music together, but we've never acted together."

But the actress - who can currently be seen in Pascal Chaumier's new French romantic comedy Heartbreaker opposite Romain Duris - is excited about the project.

She said: "It's an amazing story that takes place between a French woman and an American man when travelling wasn't as easy as it is today, and between two very strong personalities. It's a crazy beautiful story. It's a love story."

The film will be directed by Chocolat's Lasse Hallstrom.

:: Heartbreaker opens on July 2
