Lily-Rose Depp has praised her famous parents for her lenient upbringing as she discussed following in their acting footsteps in a new interview.

The only daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, 20, shed light on being a celebrity offspring as she insisted 'there wasn't anything to rebel against' because her high-profile mother and father 'weren't very strict'.

Actress Lily-Rose - who recently starred in The King and is currently a brand ambassador for Chanel - also spoke about the importance of maintaining a 'private' personal life and how she prefers to 'stay at home' than partying at clubs.

French actress Vanessa, 46, and award-winning thespian Johnny, 56, were in a long-term relationship from 1998 until 2012, and share Lily-Rose, as well as son Jack, 17.

The Joe le taxi hitmaker tied the knot to writer Samuel Benchetrit in June 2018, while the Rango star's divorce from Amber Heard was finalised in 2017, after claiming he had been 'verbally and physically' abusive towards her. 

On her early beginnings, Lily-Rose said her parents had faith in her independence, after they both left school at the age of 15.

The model told The Sun: 'My parents weren’t very strict. They’ve always trusted me to be independent and make my own decisions. There wasn’t really ­anything to rebel against.

'They both left school when they were 15, so they can’t really say ­anything. I never thought of university as my goal. I’ve always just wanted to work. I didn’t have any incentive to keep doing all that work.'

The blonde also recalled emulating her mother when she was younger by wearing her mother's clothes, and even thought about pursuing a career in singing.
