London: Vanessa Paradis has contradictory feelings about fame as she enjoys the privilege it brings, but hates the impact on her family life.
Paradis, who is mother to two kids with partner Johnny Depp, sometimes feels fame has stolen a part of her life, reported Guardian online.
"I have contradictory feelings about it. It brings me lots of privileges - it helps me to find a doctor in an emergency, or a table in a restaurant. But it also steals my private life, and it`s difficult when it affects my family. My children shouldn`t be touched by it," Paradis said.
But the 38-year-old French beauty credits her mother`s valuable advice to be patient in both personal and professional life.
"My mum told me to have patience. It`s about realising that when things aren`t going the way you want them to, or you don`t have inspiration, it will come," she added.
