Lily-Rose Depp explains her silence on the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial

Lily-Rose Depp stated in an interview with Elle magazine why she did not advertise during the trial of her father Johnny and Amber Heard. Many social media users criticized her for not publicly expressing her support for Johnny.

"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," said Lily-Rose. "I also think that I'm not here to answer for anybody, and I feel like for a lot of my career, people have really wanted to define me by the men in my life, whether that's my family members or my boyfriends, whatever.

And I'm really ready to be defined for the things that I put out there." "I hope that my quest to have the truth be told will have helped others, men or women, who have found themselves in my situation, and that those supporting them never give up," he added, sharing that the "jury gave me my life back."

Then she explained what bothers her the most.

"I also think that I'm not here to answer for anybody, and I feel like for a lot of my career, people have really wanted to define me by the men in my life, whether that's my family members or my boyfriends, whatever," Depp said in Elle.

"And I'm really ready to be defined for the things that I put out there." She added that she is aware that she is privileged because she had a childhood that many can only dream of. "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," she said, later adding that fame is a "weird thing to navigate."

"It's different experiencing it firsthand rather than by proxy," Lily-Rose said. "I guess it's something that I've had to make my own way with." Johnny fathered Lily-Rose, 23, and Jack, 20, while in a relationship with Vanessa Paradis. The two dated from 1998 to 2012.
