Yasmin Le Bon has said she and her husband Simon ‘don’t feel the need to renew their vows’ after their ‘ramshackle wedding’ nearly 36 years ago.
Despite marrying Duran Duran frontman in 1985, the supermodel says she is still besotted with her husband – and though she was tempted to walk down the aisle again, the A-list couple ‘couldn’t be bothered’ to organise a party.
In a new interview with The Sun, the 57-year-old has even suggested that Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, 45, should portray Simon, 63, in the upcoming biopic charting the successful career of the hit 80s band.
The British-Iranian model, will celebrate her anniversary with the singer in December.
They have three daughters together – Amber, 32, Saffron, 30 and 27-year-old Tallulah.

‘We thought about that years ago, but now I honestly don’t think I could be bothered to organise a party. It would just be an ad-hoc kind of thing, and we couldn’t be a*****,’ she said in an interview.
‘I think part of the reason that we’re still together is because we had a ramshackle wedding anyway.’
The film, which was announced last month, will detail how Simon shot to fame as part of the new wave band Duran Duran, alongside keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor, and drummer Roger Taylor.
The commercially successful line up previously included guitarist and Andy Taylor, who quit the band in 1986, and there have been many more band member changes over the years.

Duran Duran were considered one of the most successful band of the 1980s, and have seen their success cross over in the last three decades.
The group, who formed in Birmingham in 1978, have had 14 top 10 singles in the UK singles chart, 21 singles in the US Billboard Hot 100 and have sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
Last week Simon revealed the band would order drugs on hotel room service during their eighties heyday.
Speaking on Alan Carr’s podcast Life’s A Beach on Monday, Simon revealed that the band would order ‘substances on room service’ when partying at the Sunset Marquis in Los Angeles.
The Save a Prayer artist went on to say that things ‘quickly changed’ when he married model Yasmin, nee Parvaneh, in 1985, with his hard partying a thing of the past.
Yasmin was one of the highest-earning models during the 1980s and appeared on the covers of about 300 magazines from across the globe including the first issues of British and American Elle and three issues of Italian Vogue.
Along with her stellar career, she has cultivated a happy family life in southwest London with Simon – who she met in 1985 after he saw her photograph during a shoot and asked for her number.
In a previous interview Yasmin said that having a lasting marriage, successful career and three daughters has come at a price – with friends often falling by the wayside.
‘I’ve had to accept that if you work, travel and have a family, you can’t keep friendships up. Anybody who thinks they can, without driving themselves into the ground, is mistaken,’ she told this month’s Easy Living magazine. ‘One day friends will realise why you couldn’t always be there.’
