Vanessa Paradis is "intimidated" by the red carpet.
The French singer says she and partner Johnny Depp deliberately shun the showbiz lifestyle and she feels uncomfortable when forced to attend glamorous events or socialise with other celebrities.
She admitted: "The red carpet is not something I really know how to work. It intimidates me. I feel very tiny.
"I don't have famous neighbours and if I did, I'd avoid them. I don't live the jet-set.
"I'm really lucky. I do stay in wonderful houses, hotels and that's amazing but we're not very sociable at all. We don't go to parties or premieres."
Vanessa, 35 - who has been dating the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star for 10 years - also revealed she isn't sure she could treat another man as well as she treats Johnny.
She added to Elle magazine: "Maybe I'm a good girlfriend because I'm his girlfriend. I'm not sure I'd be a good girlfriend to anyone else."
Vanessa and Johnny, 44, have two children. Nine-year-old Lily Rose and Jack, six.
