Johnny Depp is finally responding to rumors that he and Vanessa Paradis have split after 14 years together.
"The rumors are not true. They are absolutely not true," the 48-year-old actor said in a red carpet interview at the London premiere of "Dark Shadows" on Wednesday, reports U.K.'s The Sun. “No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite," he said. “I can’t say enough about it not being over.”
The breakup rumors began in January 2012, when People magazine reported that Depp and Paradis were "living separate lives."
Though Paradis wasn't at the premiere -- and hasn't been seen with Depp since the rumors started, according to People -- the actress was quicker to refute the reports initially, telling a French TV host in January that the split speculation was "false."
The couple, who have spent the majority of their life together in the southern French town of Plan-de-la-Tour, have two children together, 12-year-old Lily-Rose, and 10-year-old Jack.
In December 2010, Depp explained his and Paradis' unmarried relationship in an interview with "Extra,": "I never found myself needing that piece of paper. Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don't need somebody to say, OK you're married."
The couple's rumored split brings to mind other never-married celebrity couples who stayed together for years, only to call it quits. Click through the slideshow below to see other famous never-married pairs.
Jessica Lange and actor-writer Sam Shepard met on the set of 1982's "Frances." The couple went on to spend nearly three decades together, raising two children, Hannah, 26, and Samuel, 24, all without ever saying "I do." The two remained similarly low-key with their breakup; reports of their split in December 2011 came two years after the couple had really called it quits in 2009, after 27 years together.
Zoe Saldana and entrepreneur Keith Britton announced their engagement after ten years together in June 2010. At the time, the actress told "Access Hollywood" that Britton was the only person who knew "the real Zoe." In November 2011, the actress' rep announced that the two had amicably separated. Despite their split, the pair remain business partners in the website My Fashion Data Base, a fashion industry credit site likened to IMDB.
Charlize Theron and Irish actor Stewart Townsend split in 2010 after nine years together. In 2007, Townsend told People magazine that the pair were "married," despite never officially tying the knot. "We love each other and we want to spend our lives together," he said in 2007. "I don't need a certificate or the state or the church to say otherwise. So no there's no big official story on a wedding, but we are married ... I consider her my wife and she considers me her husband." Theron recently compared their relationship to a marriage as well, telling Entertainment Weekly in November 2011 that "I was basically married for almost 10 years and it didn't work out."
Elizabeth Hurley famously stuck by longtime beau Hugh Grant in 1995, after the star was arrested and charged for indecent conduct with a prostitute. The couple eventually split in 2000 after 13 years together. Hurley, who's since married and divorced businessman Arun Nayar , now calls Hugh her "best friend" and asked him to be godfather to Damian, her 9-year-old son with ex Stephen Bing.
Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon called it quits in 2009 after 23 years together. The couple, who met on the set of 1988's "Bull Durham," have two sons together, Jack, 23, and Miles, 20. In October 2010, Sarandon sized up her decision to never marry in an interview with The Telegraph. "I thought that if you didn't get married you wouldn't take each other for granted as easily," she said. "I don't know if after twenty-something years that was still true."
