Poor Johnny Depp is going through normal hardships, like most fathers in his situation — his baby girl is growing up. The Hollywood hunk expressed in a new interview how hard it is for him to watch his daughter, Lily-Rose, become a woman right before his eyes.
Johnny Depp, 52, has feelings like a real dad! It seems that his daughter Lily-Rose‘s, 16, booming modeling career is hitting him where it hurts — the heart. He opened up in a new interview about the difficulties he now faces, knowing she is modeling for both Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld.
The 16-year-old daughter to Johnny and Vanessa Paradis is taking the fashion world by storm, and that’s scary the daylights out of her dad. “What’s happening to Lily-Rose is something that I didn’t expect to happen this early, that’s for sure,” Johnny said in an interview with The Daily Mail. “It’s such a funny thing when you see your daughter transitioning from your baby, your little girl, to suddenly being a young woman. If you’re not really looking for it, you can miss it, and Lily-Rose is on that road already and there’s nothing I can do to stop it.”
The loving father went on to say, “She’s been snatched up by Karl Lagerfeld – which is a coincidence, as he spotted her mother when she was the same age, too – and when I see her with make-up and all that stuff, it’s really disturbing, because she’s a very beautiful girl, and it’s all happening so fast. 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.” Awe, he is so sweet. It’s no surprise he’s Lily’s number one supporter.
Johnny also opened up on his tight relationship with her stunning daughter and not being surprised by her previous comment about admitting she was “sexually fluid”. He told the outlet, “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.” That’s so refreshing to hear him say that. “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!”
The proud daddy added, “And, whatever she is doing, if she needs any advice, I’m there for her. Kids are going to make their own decisions, but I guess that the only thing you can do as a parent is to offer support. And I do.”
