Lily-Rose Depp: It happened very fast. I was 15 and I just fell into it. I ended up doing two French movies back to back. Do I put all of my time and energy into the career that I’m just now realizing is my dream? Or do I forgo that path and just do what everybody at this age is told to do: Finish high school, go to college, and then figure out what you want to do. I realized that’s not the path for everybody. And that I had to just follow my gut, and my gut was that I wanted to put all my energy into this and just go full steam ahead.
Lily-Rose Depp: People think that it’s easier for me, that I have a foot in the door already, which I feel is something that has driven my work ethic even more, because that’s just not true. It’s a constant comparison, so I feel that drives me even more to want to show people that I do work really hard because I love what I do, and that I’m not going to take the easy way out for anything.
Lily-Rose Depp: I was a princess for the first 10 Halloweens of my life. I always wanted to be a princess, and so the fact that I got to portray a real life princess, Princess Catherine—one that’s so fascinating, driven, and strong—is just a dream come true both as an actress but also as a little girl.
Lily-Rose Depp: I just love French cinema. It’s not even out of any kind of loyalty or anything like that. I have done more French projects than American projects. That’s where I started out. I think there’s nothing cooler and classier than a beautiful French movie. I feel very lucky to be able to speak both languages, so I feel as long as they’ll have me, I would love to keep doing the French movies for as long as I can.
On this day, December 22, the French singer, model, actress, mother of Jack and Lily-Rose, the stunning Vanessa Chantal Paradis,
turns 47 years old.
