Movie hunk Johnny Depp refuses to cement his eight-year relationship with actress Vanessa Paradis by marrying her - because he doesn't believe in the institution.

The FINDING NEVERLAND star has two children, LILY-ROSE MELODY, six, and JACK, three, with Paradis and insists they're more convincing proof of their commitment to each other than a pair of wedding rings.

He explains, "We've been together eight years but we don't have ownership tags.

"We have a couple of kids, we just have not got a signed piece of paper."
