During and even with its aftermath, the Amber Heard v. Johnny Depp civil defamation trial marked the start of atrocious, personal revelations. It is not surprising that certain information about their individual private life has leaked to the public and become public knowledge. One of these includes — Jack Depp, Johnny Depp’s 20-year-old son. Netizens claim that Jack Depp can pass off as his father’s doppelgänger.
Jack Depp, 20, who prefers to keep his life quiet, and Lily-Rose Depp, 22, who we know a lot about, are Depp’s two children from his prior relationship before Heard. Jack Depp is Johnny Depp and ex-partner Vanessa Paradis’ second child. However, when he was just 10, his parents separated.
Johnny Depp’s Son Jack Depp Maintains A Low Profile
While Lily-Rose Depp has been deeply involved in the entertainment industry, particularly Hollywood, her brother likes to keep a quiet profile. Not much is known about him, and yet people on the internet are convinced that the 20-year-old is set on a path to carry out his father’s legacy. Johnny Depp has spoken up about his son’s interest in artistic pursuits in a 2014 interview and he had the following to say:
“He draws very well. He also plays music very well. He has a good ear for it. Apart from school plays and other things, he has not shown any desire to become an actor.”
While the Internet may make claims about Jack Depp following in his father’s footsteps, it is obvious that Johnny Depp has deep admiration and respect for his son’s artistic talents and wants the best for him.
Why Does Jack Depp Stay Away From The Spotlight
Vanessa Paradis, the mother of Jack Depp, has stated that she tried her best to keep their kids out of the spotlight. Furthermore, she had this to say:
“I don’t want our children to be forced to share in our fame against their will. They didn’t ask for that.”
Seems like her son was able to stray away from the path of the spotlight, until recently. The question of privacy and the constant invasion of it seems synonymous to Hollywood. Unlike her brother, Lily-Rose Depp has been under the spotlight for quite a while now.
As opposite as they are when it comes to fame, it’s obvious that Jack and Lily-Rose are incredibly close with one another as siblings. She explained that they both know French and that it was their “secret language” as kids. Following was her statement about Jack Depp:
“When my brother and I were at the same school, whenever we wanted to say something that was going to stay just between us, we could say it in French and nobody would understand.”
For now, Johnny Depp’s 20-year-old son wishes to remain out of the limelight, and only the future knows what fate has in store for him.
