Who knew Johnny Depp was such a traditional dad? The actor, who has been more known during his career as a free-spirited, sometime hotel trashing leading man than he has for his paternal behaviour surprised most of us when he spoke to a German magazine and revealed that he’s worried about his daughter.
In an interview with Gala Magazine (the translation was confirmed by The Huffington Post) the actor revealed that he’s a bit worried about his 16 year old budding model daughter. “To be honest, I’m quite worried. What’s happening with Lily-Rose right now isn’t what I expected. Definitely not at this age. But these are her passions and she’s having fun.”
In addition to walking the runway for Chanel in Paris and being named the face of Chanel Eyewear, she’s also featured in the October issue of Vogue Paris and is a budding actress. Lily-Rose is definitely following in her French mom’s footsteps. Vanessa Paradis is also a model and actress and Karl Lagerfeld muse.
So while dad Johnny Depp might be worried, he does go on to say that no matter what, he’s got her back saying “She knows that I’m always there for her.”
I can understand why Johnny would be worried, celebrity teen culture is very scary, especially seeing what can happen when young people come in to fame and fortune so young. It appears that Johnny and Vanessa did their best to keep both of their kids, Lily-Rose and her younger brother Jack, raised out of the spotlight. But a lot can happen when a young person gets a taste of fame so it’s not surprising that she would want to capitalize on it. Hopefully her parents experience in the industry will help her navigate it properly and keep her out of trouble.
Do you think Johnny has cause to be worried? I think any celebrity parent should be worried once their kids hit the teen years!!
