Previously best known as the daughter of actor Johnny Depp and French singer Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose Depp has been carving out an impressive career of her own.
Appearing on Issue 2 of The Face, the 20-year-old model discusses her growing acting career as well dealing with insecurities and growing up in the public eye.
Describing herself as “just a normal person,” Depp tells The Face, “I’ve always been taught that privacy is something you should value and keep as much for yourself as possible. I would rather people think I’m boring than people know too much about my life. I’ll be boring any day.”
Though she might prefer to maintain her privacy, Depp, who will appear in the upcoming film Dreamland, was photographed in September kissing actor Timothée Chalamet in Capri, Italy. It was the kiss that launched a thousand memes – and also created quite a few headlines.
Depp tells The Face her fame doesn’t make her immune to self doubts. “I’m 20,” she says, “Obviously, I have tons of insecurities, just like everybody else.”
But what’s not on that list of insecurities is her body, as she credits her mother for helping her possess a positive body image from a young age.
“I’m not nervous about stuff like that,” she says about appearing nude on screen. “I grew up being, like, topless on the beach. I was raised by a French mother who taught me that there was nothing shameful about your body.” She even adds, “My mum is a trailblazer, truly. She’s taught me a lot about self-confidence.”
