Johnny Depp wants to rekindle his relationship with Vanessa Paradis.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor has flown to the South of France in a bid to patch things up with the model and has given her an antique gold pendant bearing the message "My heart is always with you."
A source close to the couple - who were together for 14 years and had two children, Lily-Rose, 13, and 10-year-old Jack, together - told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "They are having a family holiday to show the kids they are still a strong family even if those two are split or not.
"But the fact he presented her with such a touching gift, it's almost as if they could make another go of things. Johnny wants to be with his family, he's a very family orientated man. His kids mean everything to him.
"What they need more than anything is to get together far away from Hollywood and that is what they are doing."
Although they were never married, it had been claimed Vanessa was going to get $150 million from Johnny in a one-off payment.
Since their split - which was confirmed in June following months of speculation - Johnny has been linked to actress Amber Heard.
However, the pair recently decided to take some time apart.
