Hollywood actor Johnny Depp has confirmed that his 16-year-old daughter Lily-Rose is bisexual. The actor admitted that he knew this fact long before she joined the LGBT community, because they have a very close relationships. The actor wasn’t shocked by his teen daughter coming out this August.
“She’s got thousands of followers on social media, and they were all taken completely by surprise. But not me. I already knew because she tells me everything – she’s not afraid to say anything to me. We’re super-tight and I’m very proud of our relationship. Lily’s really together – she’s a sharp kid and one of the smartest human beings I have ever met.”
“She’s far surpassed myself there – and my friends, too!” said Lily’s father. “And, whatever she is doing, if she needs any advice, I’m there for her. Kids are going to make their own decisions, but I guess that the only thing you can do as a parent is to offer support. And I do.” These are really supportive words of understanding father. Johnny Depp really deserves respect!
Lily-Rose joined the LGBT community in August this year, deciding to participate in a photo project called Self-Evident Truths («self-evident truths”). She became one of 10 thousand participants of this photo session, who identify themselves as “anything other than 100% straight.”
Lily’s friend, an American artist, photographer and activist iO Tillet Wright, uploaded his joined photo with Lilly-Rose on Instagram and praised Lily’s decision to come out with the aim to support the campaign’s ‘We Are You’ motto. He wrote below his supportive words:
“I’m so proud of my baby girl @lilyrose_depp. She decided she wanted to be in @selfevidentproject because she falls somewhere on the vast spectrum, and I couldn’t be happier to welcome her to the family. She’s a tiny gem of a good human. #prouduncle#weareyou.”
