Johnny Depp Surprised by His Daughter Lily-Rose’s Acting Career


The iconic actor has commented that he wasn’t expecting his 16-year-old daughter Lily-Rose to become famous so quickly. Already after landing several film roles and also becoming known as a model, Lily-Rose looks set to follow in the footsteps of her parents. Johnny says it has been slightly unexpected but he believes she can cope with fame and he is proud:

”What is happening with Lily-Rose is something I didn’t expect this early, for sure. But things happen when they happen. Her becoming an actress was never my hope or dream for her but that’s what she enjoys doing. So I am very proud of her because she is super together and a sharp, sharp kid.”

The actor makes sure he is there for his teenage daughter as she become more famous although he can struggle with her growing up so quickly:

”She tells me everything and if she needs any advice I am there. But yeah, it’s happening pretty fast and when I see her with all that make-up and stuff, it’s disturbing.”

Speaking on Oscar nominations, Johnny commented that he isn’t going to take on roles just so he can win and is happy sticking with the parts he loves:

The idea of winning means that you’re in competition with someone and I’m not in competition with anybody. I just stick to my guns and do what I want to do. Sometimes people don’t like it but that’s alright.”
