Daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose Depp found herself hated on the internet for a comment about nepotism. After Johnny Depp’s infamous libel lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard, it looks like the actor will have to settle things again.
Facing a Backlash and Being Called Out “out of reach”Lily-Rose Depp’s thoughts on nepotism did not sit well with people.
Lily-Rose Depp’s controversial discussions of nepotism
Lily-Rose Depp is a Franco-American actress with a few small roles to her credit. She began her career playing a small role in Defense (2014). The actress later found herself playing roles in period dramas like The dancer (2016), Planetarium (2016), and, The king (2019).

After playing those roles, the actress recently spoke with She on the current negative trend of nepotism. Lily-Rose Depp has denied claims that she is “privileged” and shared his thoughts on nepotism.
“It’s weird for me to reduce someone to the idea that they’re only there because it’s a generation thing. It just doesn’t make sense. If somebody’s mother or father is a doctor, and the child becomes a doctor, you’re not going to think, “Well, you’re only a doctor because your parent is a doctor.” It’s like, ‘No, I went to medical school and trained.’
Following her statements, people blamed the actress for being “out of reach” with reality. They tweeted about the problems of an ordinary person and their daily struggles that the actress apparently wouldn’t have to face.
This is the problem of the rich born into privilege. They literally have no perspective on what the average person needs to do to obtain the resources and opportunities they were born with.

Nobody in medical school graduates kids early because their parents are doctors. Nepotism actors have their own careers and we can’t deny that if their family wasn’t famous, they would have had a harder time. It’s not a bad thing to admit

girl, you have had all the doors open to play since you were a child. that doesn’t even come close to what a regular actor has to do to get an audition for the roles you basically handed in

Imagine having all the privileges in the world to be a successful model or an amazing actress and yet be a talentless person who is only praised on Pinterest for her outfit inspiration.

During the aforementioned interview with She, Lily-Rose Depp has shared her thoughts on Depp’s recently concluded defamation lawsuit. The actress also added that her view of private life was hazy as the thoughts she felt were suddenly exposed to the wind and known to everyone.
“I know my childhood wasn’t like everyone else’s childhood, and it’s a very special thing to deal with, but it’s also the only thing I know. When it’s something so private and so personal that suddenly becomes not so personal… I really have the right to have my secret garden of thoughts.
Lily-Rose Depp is set to star alongside her father Johnny Depp in the duo’s next French film The Favourite. The film features Johnny Depp as King Louis XV in the French biographical drama. The film is set to hit theaters in France in 2023 and will be available to stream 15 months later on Netflix (allegedly).
