The daughter of Johnny Depp is keeping her thoughts to herself regarding the controversy surrounding him.

Lily-Rose Depp will be remaining quiet about her father for the time being.

The 23-year-old was asked some questions about her personal feelings towards the controversy surrounding her father in a new feature for Elle Magazine. Depp, however, is not allowing herself to be defined by the men in her life.

Lily-Rose Depp is the famous offspring of her father, actor Johnny Depp, and her mother, actor, model and composer Vanessa Paradis. Her first big acting break was when she played Catherine of Valois in Netflix's 'The King' opposite Timothée Chalamet. She'll next play the lead female role in HBO's upcoming drama/thriller 'The Idol', from 'Euphoria' creator Sam Levinson. The series co-stars The Weeknd, Troye Sivan, Dan Levy, Hari Nef and Hank Azaria and will premiere in the new year. She's also attached to Robert Eggers' 'Nosferatu'.

When asked about her father, Lily-Rose Depp wished to avoid commenting on the matter: "When it's something that's so private and so personal that all of a sudden becomes not so personal… I feel really entitled to my secret garden of thoughts.

"I also think that I'm not here to answer for anybody, and I feel like for a lot of my career, people have really wanted to define me by the men in my life, whether that's my family members or my boyfriends, whatever. And I'm ready to be defined for the things that I put out there."

Johnny Depp has been embroiled in legal troubles and controversies for many years, most recently his very public case with ex-wife Amber Heard. Jurors in the Depp vs. Heard trial eventually sided more with the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor in June of this year, following accusations of abuse by the opposition. A case where there really was no winner, Depp was awarded $15 million in compensatory and punitive damages while Heard won three counter-claims and was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages. Both actors have since appealed the outcome.

On the subject of Depp only landing roles due to the status of her perents, she "laughs dryly" saying: "I've heard. The internet seems to care a lot about that kind of stuff. People are going to have preconceived ideas about you or how you got there, and I can definitely say that nothing is going to get you the part except for being right for the part.

"The internet cares a lot more about who your family is than the people who are casting you in things. Maybe you get your foot in the door, but you still just have your foot in the door. There's a lot of work that comes after that."

'The Idol' begins on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the new year.
