Being the daughter of two famous people, father actor Johnny Depp and mother French singing sensation Vanessa Paradis, it is no surprise that Lily-Rose also is in the spotlights.

Last year she -more or less- came out. However this seems to be a misunderstanding.
She hit the headlines in August 2015 when she posed for iO Tillett Wright’s Self-Evident Truths Project, a photo series of people who aren’t “100% straight”.
But now Depp has clarified the reasons behind her participation in the project, telling Nylon magazine that she never meant it to be a “coming out”.
“That was really misconstrued, that whole thing,” she said. “A lot of people took it as me coming out, but that’s not what I was trying to do. I was literally doing it to say that you don’t have to label your sexuality.”
The Yoga Hosers star went on say that there’s too much pressure on kids to label themselves and that she believes sexuality is “not set in stone”.
Depp said: “I was just trying to say that it’s unnecessary; you don’t need to label yourself. I guess it came off the wrong way, because then everyone labelled me as gay. That’s not what I was trying to say. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course! But I did that literally just to say you don’t have to label yourself, and everyone like like, Lily-Rose Depp comes out as gay!”
She went on: “I’m saying it doesn’t matter! It’s not anybody’s business, because I am going to date whoever I’m going to date. I was just saying, kids don’t need to label their sexualities. It’s not that big of a deal.”
On why more and more people are deciding not to put a label on themselves, Depp puts it down to evolution. “People have completely different beliefs, different mindsets than they had 30 years ago-and they will have different mindsets and beliefs 30 years from now,” she said. “I think life goes on, people progress and evolve, and that kind of thinking changes.
