You probably remember that, some time ago, Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose came out as sexually fluid. Now the actor has spoken on this with the Daily Mail, revealing a wonderful and supporting relationship between them.
When discussing how she came out via Instagram in August, Johnny said: “She’s got thousands of followers on social media, and they were all taken completely by surprise. But not me. I already knew because she tells me everything – she’s not afraid to say anything to me. We’re super-tight and I’m very proud of our relationship.”
Naturally, Johnny is also very proud of his daughter’s accomplishments: “Lily’s really together – she’s a sharp kid and one of the smartest human beings I have ever met. She’s far surpassed myself there – and my friends, too!”
“No matter how grown-up she gets, I’ll never stop worrying about her. It’s a father-daughter thing. She’s got a sensible head on her shoulders, and I trust her to lead a sensible, responsible life, but I can’t ever see the day coming when I just switch off to let her make her own way in the world.”
“It’s such a funny thing,” he went on, “when you see your daughter transitioning from your baby, your little girl, to suddenly being a young woman. […] Her becoming an actress was never my dream or my desire for her, but that’s what she enjoys doing, and it’s her passion and it’s where she ended up. And she’s got the goods – she can certainly deliver.”
