She's the daughter of a world famous actor and an international supermodel, she's appeared in a campaign for French fashion house Chanel, and two Kevin Smith movies. She's become a symbol of embracing sexuality, has a mammoth social media following, cool friends, and cheekbones to die for — but according to new kid on the block, Lily Rose Depp, growing up in the spotlight also has its downsides.
While it's easy to look at all the achievements this doe-eyed beauty has made in her 16-years on this planet and scoff at any complaints she may have, imagining all your cringeworthy teenage antics splashed all over the news helps to put it in perspective.
She explains to Love magazine:
“It is delicate being my age, and trying to do all the regular teenager stuff, and then having that in the spotlight.”
Which being fair, is totally understandable. She's also very grateful for her position and fully acknowledges that were it not for her parents, her transition into Hollywood would've been nowhere near as easy, nor as immediately fruitful.
“But I am grateful for what it brings and it is honestly a small price to pay to get to do what I want to do - I am very happy about that.”
In the interview, which is the first she's done on her own, Lily-Rose also discusses plans for her future and it would seem that the apple does not fall far from the tree...
"I can act every single day because I love it; it’s just so liberating. It might be rare, but there are certain moments when you really don’t feel like yourself. When you are in the character so fully, it’s the best feeling ever. I so love it. Even if those moments come just once a day or every other day, they are just worth it."
52-year-old Johnny has previously spoken out about their tight relationship, and while he acknowledges that growing up in the spotlight is hard (he landed his first film role aged 21, after all), he's adamant he's there for her every step of the way.
"And, whatever she is doing, if she needs any advice, I’m there for her. Kids are going to make their own decisions, but I guess that the only thing you can do as a parent is to offer support. And I do.”
