In the past few years, Johnny Depp has had a rough few years. Recently, he has had to put his acting career aside to deal with his legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard. This legal battle includes allegations of domestic and sexual violence, which has taken a massive toll on Depp’s career. However, amid this chaos, his daughter Lily-Rose Depp is navigating still to find her place in Hollywood. In a recent interview, the younger Depp talked about personal responsibility amid the ensuing chaos.

Lily-Rose Depp talks about her own responsibility as an actor
While speaking to ET Online, the 21-year-old talked about growing up in a household where she was always under the spotlight. She said:
You can’t be perfect all the time. Nobody’s perfect. Period. I think that’s just the fact of life. But I think a big part of keeping a good head on your shoulders is just having a lot of self-awareness and never feeling like you take yourself too seriously to put your actions back into question.
Lily-Rose Depp began her young career in Kevin Smith’s movies Tusk and Yoga Hosers. And ever since, she has undertaken a number of roles, the most recent one being in Voyagers. In this interview, she was promoting a sci-fi thriller with Tye Sheridan. In it, Lily-Rose will portray a young woman aboard a spaceship on a mission to a habitable planet. However, the journey will take 86 years to fulfill, as the crew questions whether they should fulfill their responsibility or act selfishly.
As far as her father is concerned, Lily-Rose Depp has mostly steered clear of that controversy. However, she has no issues working with her father Johnny Depp, calling him a “great actor”. She continued:
Never say never. That’s really not something that I consider first and foremost… What’s interesting to me is the particular character that I may or may not be playing and then the story that it’s telling and everything. I think when the cast then starts to fill that story out and everything, those are other things to consider. But yeah, I mean, I love to work with great actors.
It might be a while till we see Lily-Rose Depp and her father in a movie together. Johnny Depp’s legal battles, however, are far from over. He has an upcoming $50 defamation lawsuit set to be heard in Virginia against his ex-wife, after recently losing a defamation lawsuit in the UK against The Sun for calling him a “wife-beater”.
