Lily-Rose Depp: biography
Lily-Rose Depp was born on May 27, 1999, in Paris where her famous parents lived at that period. The birth of the daughter turned Johnny’s and Vanessa’s lives. They created lullabies for the girl; the mother wrote lyrics, and the father was responsible for the music. As a result, the fascinating “La Ballade de Lily Rose” was created. Johnny Depp has a tattoo on his chest: the daughter’s name.
Later, the girl’s younger brother, John Christopher Depp III, was born. The family lived in Le Plan-de-la-Tour for a while and then moved to the United States. The caring parents took their kids to the prestigious Oakwood School that not only focused on students’ academic knowledge but also developed their artistic abilities. Every child realized that adults valued and respected them.
Lily-Rose stood out for her energy and curiosity; the girl frequently participated in the school life. In 2016, she graduated from high school, and the photos from the prom appeared on the Internet. Many people were surprised and even shocked to see the young woman: she was thin and fragile. Later, Lily confessed she had anorexia. She told Elle magazine:
“It hurts a lot and depresses me because I have spent a lot of energy fighting the disease. I was much younger when I faced with anorexia; it was very difficult to deal with it. All who are familiar with this problem, know how difficult it is to return to a normal life”.
When Lily was only 12, the father left the family. Depp and Paradis had no scandals related to their divorce; it happened quickly. It was the young blonde Amber Heard who caused the family break-up; Depp and Heard co-starred in the movie The Rum Diary. Lily-Rose took the news about the parents’ split-up calmly. The paparazzi often saw Amber and Lily shop or have lunch together.
Tabloids published Lily-Rose’s photos right after she was born; the young woman is used to high public attention. The media actively discussed her life, looks, and clothes.
Any child from a family of Hollywood actors lives in the world of art, and Lily was not an exception. While the girl loved her father, she also dreamed of getting rid of the label “Johnny Depp’s daughter”: the relation directly influenced the young actress’s work.
Lily debuted in cinematography at 15: she appeared in the movie Tusk. The father also played in this project. The actor’s fans considered the movie to be weird; one can hardly expect something else from the eccentric actor and his daughter. Overall, Tusk perfectly fits the star family: crazy, surreal, and phantasmagoric.
The actress wrote on her Instagram page:
“It is very exciting to make my little contribution to the film Tusk, where my dad works. I hope you like it!”
Lily took a secondary role: a charming blonde salesperson at a gas station. She was constantly chatting on the phone and did not even try to do her primary job: selling things to customers.
Further on, Lily-Rose appeared in the next part of the trilogy, Yoga Hosers, and collaborated with Johnny Depp again. Harley Quinn Smith, the daughter of the director Kevin Smith, co-statted with Lily. The next part of the True North Trilogy, Moose Jaws, will also star the actresses.
In 2016, the movie Planetarium came out. Natalie Portman who got the lead role chose the actress as her partner: she gave the director her photos, and he approved of Depp’s candidature. The actresses personified two sisters who could talk to spirits.
Lily-Rose Depp is interested in modeling; her unusual appearance is perfect for commercials while she is not tall enough for runways. Lily’s height is 5.25 ft. (160 cm.), and her weight is 88.18 lbs. (40 kg.). Some modeling gurus believe that Elizabeth Taylor herself could envy the young woman’s cheekbones.
Depp started collaborating with Chanel in April 2015. Karl Lagerfeld organized the new show Chanel Paris-Salzburg in New York and engaged several new models including Lily-Rose. At that time, there were many speculations that the young woman was going to become the brand’s new spokesperson. The rumors were confirmed: the next year, Chanel and Lily-Rose Depp signed a contract.
The young woman advertised Chanel №5 L’Eau, the modern version of Chanel No. 5. The model looked as good as famous actresses who had participated in the company commercials: Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tautou, Catherine Deneuve. Lily became the representative of the brand and appeared in the Pearl glasses commercial (fall-winter 2015 collection). Today, many magazines publish Depp’s photos: Vogue, Gala, and Grazia.
Lily-Rose Depp frequently patriciates in social campaigns; for instance, in 2015, she joined Self Evident Truths project aimed at protecting LGBT people. Journalists guesstimated that the actress was attracted to men and women. Lovemagazine posted the photos of Lily and the model Stella Maxwell, and some people believed they were in a romantic relationship.
Lily keeps her personal life private. She is often seen with her colleague, Ash Stymest, who is a popular figure in modeling and music: he participated in Balenciaga show, advertised Dr. Martens shoes, and appeared in a photo session for Vogue. Johnny Depp is not much happy about the couple’s relationship: Ash is eight years than Lily, was married, and has a kid.
The young woman has an Instagram account and regularly posts photos with her colleagues and pets. Willow Smith and Harley Quinn Smith are Lily’s best friends.
Despite the father’s disapproval, Lily-Rose continues to date Ash Stymest; the lovers live together. The model’s career is developing: she appears in Chanel campaigns, and tabloids discuss her style. Lily-Rose has certainly inherited her mother’s Parisian chic.
The young woman chooses monochrome clothes for social events that emphasize her natural beauty. In her daily life, Lily looks just like her peers: jeans, short tops, large shoes, and sweatshirts.
According to Lily-Rose, she wants to master her acting skills and collaborate with Quentin Tarantino. Many critics believe this dream may come true: the actress is talented, and her career is forming.
The artist confesses she has some bad habits: she smokes.
