Benjamin Biolay Vanessa Paradis johnny depp lax airport

How do you say "downgrade" in French?!

Vanessa Paradis dropped off new beau Benjamin Biolay at LAX yesterday, and we hate to be mean, but he's not quite the looker her ex Johnny Depp is!

So who exactly is this new man? He's a 41-year-old French singer who has been divorced since 2009, and although we have never seen them together publicly, he has been linked to Miss Paradis since shortly after her split from the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.

Looks aren't everything, so maybe he has a shining personality? Or else we just don't get this!
