The 20-year-old daughter of Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp has been famous from birth due to her a-list parents, however, Lily is carving out her own career as an actress, starring alongside Timothée Chalamet in the new historic epic, The King.

She has shared how growing up in the spotlight has helped her navigate fame. Lily also confesses that the fact that people recognise her because of her famous family means she's had to work harder to focus more on who she is and cultivate her brain and her knowledge.

Adding that being a smart and kind person is more important than being a beautiful one. 

Lily has also said she likes to keep things mysterious and "values" her privacy. She added that her famous parents have always taught her the value of privacy and have encouraged her to have as "normal" life.

"My parents have always wanted me to have as normal of a life as possible and have really taught me to value privacy and your personal life ... There’s definitely something to be said about not giving everything away," she tells Vogue Australia.

She adds, "It’s complicated enough to navigate being in the public eye when you’re young and growing up under that spotlight. It’s just really knowing what I am okay with sharing and knowing what I want for myself."

And the the Faithful Man star has slammed rumours that she gets roles just because of her famous parents, and in fact, she regrets these parts because she doesn't want to get hired just because of family connections.
