Break-ups are hard to handle, and no one knows that better than Vanessa Paradis

The stunning French actress and longtime love of Johnny Depp officially announced their separation in June, after two kids (Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 10) and 14-years together.

Paradis previously told French Elle that she didn't "want to talk about him [Johnny Depp]," but she has since shed light on the demise of her relationship with the 49-year-old actor in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Keep in mind, the magazine sat down with Vanessa just two days before the split was officially announced to the media.  

"Love is the strongest and most fragile thing we have in life," the 39-year-old beauty says. "Nothing is ever for sure, but when something in love doesn't work from the beginning, it's never going to work. Don't push it."

She continues, explaining that it is indeed possible to be in love and unhappy:

"When you meet the love of your life, it's just obvious and natural and easier," she says before adding, "you keep learning all the time. Sometimes you could be in an unhappy relationship; you are very much in love with someone, but it's making you unhappy and you think things can change and you can work it out."

Although Johnny and Vanessa seemingly tried to make it work (rumors were brewing for months before they officially called it quits), both are moving on and leading single lives.

Johnny has since been romantically linked to his Rum Diary costar Amber Heard and has even been spotted jamming with Aerosmith in his spare time.

As for Vanessa? Well, she seems more than ready to find a new man.

"My type is obviously creative," she reveals. "Creative, with burning eyes and a pretty mouth."

You hear that, all burning eyed, pretty mouthed, creative fellas?
