Just when you thought you couldn’t fall more in love with Johnny Depp, he makes a comment about being a dad. The Rango star says his two wonderful kids Lily-Rose, 11, and Jack, 8, with long-time love Vanessa Paradis, helped him discover the true meaning of life.
“The birth of my daughter, my first kid, was the lifting of a veil,” he explains to Access Hollywood, referring to Lily-Rose. “It was like having this fog removed from your eyes… And suddenly you could see things clearly in great focus.” It is wonderful to hear how much fatherhood means to Johnny.
But although he’s found this clarity within his home life, Johnny still struggles to find it within his career. “In terms of being a dad, in terms of being a pop, that’s exactly who I am,” he says. “But, in the context of the world that I work in, I’m still sort of figuring it out I guess.”
Johnny has never been one to embrace the Hollywood hype and that’s why he is still one of the most intriguing actors out there. His main priority is family.
