After acting in these roles, the actress recently talked with Elle about the current negative trend of nepotism. Lily-Rose Depp denied the allegations that she is “privileged” and shared her thoughts on nepotism.

“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 a 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.'”

Following her statements, people slammed the actress for being “out of touch” with reality. They tweeted about the problems of a common person and their daily struggles that the actress allegedly doesn’t have to face.

During the above-mentioned interview with Elle, Lily-Rose Depp told her thoughts on the recently finished Depp defamation trial. The actress also added that her vision of privacy was blurred since the thoughts that she felt were suddenly exposed in the wind and known to everybody.

“I know my childhood didn’t look like everybody’s childhood, and it’s a very particular thing to deal with, but it’s also the only thing that I know. When it’s something that’s so private and so personal that all of a sudden becomes not so personal…I feel really entitled to my secret garden of thoughts.”

Lily-Rose Depp is reportedly slated to star alongside her father Johnny Depp in the duo’s upcoming French movie La Favorite. The movie features Johnny Depp as King Louis XV in the French biographical drama. The film is slated to be released theatrically in France in 2023 and will be available to stream 15 months later on Netflix (allegedly).
