Lily-Rose Depp is the daughter of the famous actor Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. The model became news after assuring that she wasn't a "nepo baby", because she had gotten to where she was because of her talent and with her own effort.
“The internet cares much more about who your family is than the people who are getting you into things. Maybe you get your foot in the door, but you still have your foot in the door. There's a lot of work that comes after that", she explained in an interview with Elle.

As Vittoria Ceretti, who through an Instagram story, sent a forceful message to Jack Sparrow's daughter: "I understand all the 'I'm here and I work hard for it', but I would really love to see if you would have lasted the first 5 years of my career".
