Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis' daughter breaks silence on her father's trial


Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, breaks the silence in a long interview given to the American edition of the magazine Elle. The 23-year-old actress discusses the reason for her silence during the six long weeks of her father's trial against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, as well as the price of fame. Here are six elements retained by Le Journal. 

His refusal to comment on the trial:

After being criticized on social media for not commenting or speaking up for her father during the domestic violence trial (which her mother, Vanessa Paradis, did by claiming that her ex-husband would never have raised a hand on her), Lily-Rose addresses the issue today. “When it's something so private and so personal that all of a sudden doesn't become so personal anymore… I really feel entitled to have my secret garden of thoughts.” She adds that she is not there to answer for her father's actions or “to answer for anyone” and often felt like she was defined by the men in her life.

Relationships with his mother:

The celebrities have to reveal everything?

“I'm not here to give myself to the world and be eaten alive”, launches the actress who does not have a Twitter account and who only shares fashion photos and her work on Instagram. 

Her relationship with social media and screens:

The actress laments people's lack of empathy and meanness on social media. “People think you're a video game character and say all these horrible things about you that they would never say to your face,” says the artist. I think we feel a little too protected by our screens. » 

His role in the series The Idol:

Jocelyn is an unbridled young woman for whom nightclubs, cocaine and sadomasochism are a way of life. In the midst of a pandemic, the actress auditioned via Zoom, reading with the male lead role: singer The Weeknd! “I will always remember the moment when I received this call, it was the most beautiful surprise! »
