She feels entitled to her secret garden of thoughts when it comes to something that is so private and personal and then becomes less so. Lily-Rose stated that she is not there to answer for anyone. She wishes to be defined and known solely for her merit.

The actress also discussed navigating her life as the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. She explained that it is something she has had to deal with her entire life. She admitted that her parents shielded her and her brother Jack from fame and attention as much as they could. Lily understands her childhood did not look like everyone else’s which is a difficult thing to deal with, but it is also the only thing she knows.

But she knows that it is something she has to deal with on her own. The actress said she is an open book with her friends, but also knows that some things are to keep private. So, she is protective about her life too.
