Lily-Rose Depp divulged that, despite being the daughter of renowned actor Johnny Depp, she was able to experience a relatively ordinary upbringing.
For the cover of i-D magazine’s “The Timeless Issue,” Lily-Rose posed topless, demonstrating her confidence in who she is. In a later interview, Lily-Rose lauded her parents for their unwavering support as she overcame fame and forged ahead with life. The Depp family prioritize authentic experiences which have enabled her to thrive despite living under the public gaze since childhood.
“I’m so careful about these conversations now. I feel like my parents did the best job that they possibly could at giving me the most ‘normal childhood’ that they could. And obviously, that still was not a normal childhood. I’m super aware of the fact that my childhood did not look like everybody’s,” she said.

“But at the same time, it’s all that I know, so I have had to find comfort in it somehow,” she explained. “I’m really lucky that I’ve been surrounded by people who value normalcy and who value real life and I think that’s the only way to exist in this world and not go insane.”
KATE HUDSON, LILY-ROSE DEPP and other celebrities are pushing back against the negative impact of being labeled a ‘Nepo Baby’.
The relentless attention from the limelight can certainly become overwhelming for Lily-Rose at times, according to a reliable source.
“I can’t smoke weed unless I’m in my room,” she explained. “It f—s with my head. I overthink, like, ‘If I leave my house and I look like s— and someone takes a photo, is it going to be, She looks like hell, she must be depressed?’ People are so quick to want to be like, ‘You’re doing badly.’”
She went on to reveal the way she brings herself “back down to Earth.”
“At the end of the day, everybody cares more about themselves than they do you,” Lily-Rose noted. “I bring myself back down to Earth and go, ‘Girl, you don’t matter that much.’ That’s the only way to deal with it. By being like, ‘Oh my God, no one f—ing cares.’”
“We’re having this conversation because I am privileged enough to get to do the job that I’m so passionate about. There’s good and bad sides to everything,” she added. “If I have to deal with a little bit of anxiety to keep doing what I love, then I’m ready.”
As she takes on her first leading part in “The Idol,” created by Sam Levinson of the acclaimed show “Euphoria”, Lily-Rose delves into how she overcomes imposter syndrome. With every new project, this is a challenge she has to face and conquer.
“You just have to jump in and have some kind of faith that, if they’ve chosen me, then hopefully I’ve been chosen for a reason. That’s all that you can do,” she admitted. “By that same token, I think that there’s nothing more exciting than being like, ‘Wow, I’m so nervous. I feel so challenged by this. How on earth am I going to pull this off?’ You could ask for no better fuel to make you want to work really, really hard. ‘Okay, I really don’t want to f— this up, so let me work as hard as I possibly can to make sure that I have left no rock unturned.’”
“If you’re not scared, then what’s the point? I like the fear a little bit.”
In 1998, Depp and Vanessa Paradis met in Paris while the former was filming “The Ninth Gate,” marking the beginning of their love story. Together they had a beautiful daughter, Lily-Rose.
After 14 years together, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis never took their relationship to the next level by tying the knot.
“I love the romance of ‘Let’s get married,’ but then, when you have it so perfect … I mean, I’m more married than anybody can be – we have two kids. Maybe one day, but it’s something I can really do without,” Paradis once told Elle magazine.
The pair split in 2012.
Before embarking on her acting career, Lily-Rose’s first foray into the industry was modeling. At only 16 years old, she became the youngest Chanel ambassador ever chosen by Karl Lagerfeld in 2015 – truly a remarkable accomplishment!
