After Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp found heavy backlash due to her thoughts and comments on nepotism, but has recently found support from a fashion model. Ireland Baldwin claimed her support of Lily-Rose Depp and how the people misinterpreted her words, which was the primary cause of the backlash. Lily-Rose Depp has starred in minor roles in her career in Hollywood till now and is the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis.
Ireland Baldwin Stands Up For And Supports Lily-Rose Depp
Ireland Baldwin is an American model and is the child of notable actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger. Sharing similar thoughts on nepotism, Ireland Baldwin held no words back as she firmly stood alongside Lily-Rose Depp. She also called the actress a great icon of beauty and how she can be a model. In one of her statements, Ireland Baldwin also reportedly stated that using nepotism for a chance is good.
Stating the above statements in a TikTok video, the American model also found some backlash after siding with Lily-Rose Depp.
“First of all, I think that Lily-Rose Depp is beautiful. I think that she is very capable of being a model and she’s proven herself in a lot of ways. In anything that I pursue and anything that I do in my life, people are always going to say I have what I have because of my parents, which is true,”
The Grudge Match actress further continued,
“I wouldn’t be where I am, I wouldn’t have gotten where I am and been able to do what I can do if it weren’t for my parents, and I think really where you go wrong is denying that. You can continue to work hard and be your own person, and either you’re talented, either you’re capable or you’re not.”
Ireland Baldwin furthermore had this to say about Lily-Rose Depp and her thoughts on nepotism:
“I do think you get a place where you get really tired of answering questions about your parents because you so desperately want to be someone separate from all of that. Especially when you choose a career that is in the public eye. I think maybe saying what she said is coming out of a defensive place. When things could be a lot more simple and understandable and relatable if you just are honest about what you have and why you have what you have.”
Safe to say, the American model also found some backlash for her remarks as the people asked questions about where the common man would go if nepotism blocked their avenues. Lily-Rose Depp on the other hand found herself surrounded by backlash for her comments on nepotism.
What Lily-Rose Depp Said About Nepotism
In an interview with Elle, The King (2019) actress shared her thoughts on what nepotism meant for her. Safe to say, people didn’t like what she said.
“It’s weird to me to reduce somebody to the idea that they’re only there because it’s a generational thing. It just doesn’t make any sense. If somebody’s mom or dad is doctor, and then the kid becomes a doctor, you’re not going to be like, ‘Well, you’re only a doctor because your parent is a doctor.’ It’s like, ‘No, I went to medical school and trained.’”
Although there seems to be no right or wrong in this scenario, the Depp family faces yet another problem after Johnny Depp recently emerged victorious in the Depp v Heard defamation trial. There have been no further comments from Lily-Rose Depp.
