Lily-Rose Depp has finally addressed why she’s decided to stay quiet about her dad Johnny Depp’s high-profile court case against Amber Heard. The 23-year-old broke her silence admitting she has avoided weighing in on the controversy because she refuses to be defined by men in her life.

She explained: “When it’s something that’s so private and so personal that all of a sudden becomes not so personal, I feel really entitled to my secret garden of thoughts.

“I also think that I’m not here to answer for anybody, and I feel like for a lot of my career, people have really wanted to define me by the men in my life, whether that’s my family members or my boyfriends, whatever.”

Lily is the daughter of the 59-year-old actor and his ex partner, singer Vanessa Paradis, 49.

They are also parents to her younger brother, 23-year-old Jack.

Being the child of such a high-profile pair, her desire of privacy doesn’t come as a surprise.

From a young age, she said her parents tried their best to protect her and Jack from the limelight, but acknowledged her family life was different. 

She added: “I know my childhood didn’t look like everybody’s childhood, and it’s a very particular thing to deal with, but it’s also the only thing that I know,” she added to Elle Magazine. 

Lily followed in her parents’ showbiz footsteps and got her first acting role in Tusk back in 2014.

She has since starred in The Dancer, Planetarium and The King.

As well as acting, she is known for being a model and in 2015 became the face of Chanel No. 5.

On social media, she has a staggering 6.8 million followers and regularly interacts with her fans.

In the same interview, Lily-Rose shared her thoughts on the term ‘nepo baby’.

The phrase refers to a child of a famous person who appears to have only gained success through their parents.

The model said she is “familiar” with the term but insisted it’s stereotypical.  

She explained: “The internet seems to care a lot about that kind of stuff.

“People are going to have preconceived ideas about you or how you got there, and I can definitely say that nothing is going to get you the part except for being right for the part.

“The internet cares a lot more about who your family is than the people who are casting you in things.

“Maybe you get your foot in the door, but you still just have your foot in the door.”

She went on to say there was still “a lot of hard work” that comes after that first stage.
