Speaking to Harper's Bazaar two days before announcing her split from long-term partner Johnny Depp, Paradis described love as "the strongest and most fragile thing we have in life".
"Nothing is ever for sure, but when something in love doesn't work from the beginning, it's never going to work," she said. "Don't push it."
The actress added: "When you meet the love of your life, it's just obvious and natural and easier... [But] 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."
Paradis recently appeared to reveal that she is satisfied with her split from Depp, saying: "I want to be where I am right now."
Meanwhile, Depp is thought to be dating actress Amber Heard.
