Johnny Depp's kids, Lily-Rose and Jack Depp, have very different personalities. However, do the siblings have a close relationship — especially given their differing reactions to their parents' breakup and that quickly followed?
Johnny had seemed content dividing his time between a successful Hollywood career and chilled family life at his chateau in the south of France. "[I have] a marvelous family and also an equilibrium which I missed enormously," he told VSD (via ) about his idyllic life in Plan-de-la-Tour. "With Vanessa and the kids, we live in a sort of little village in the south, and I have the impression of being in paradise," Johnny continued. Then, just like that, it was over. In 2013, a publicist told ET (via ) that after 14 years together.
Despite the questionable timing of when Johnny's relationship with Paradis ended and his new one began, Lily-Rose initially seemingly liked Heard. Or so it appeared in court documents that were revealed during . "You've been a better dad to Jack and me since she has been around, and she was helping with the alcohol problem," Lily-Rose wrote to her father when he considered splitting up with Heard (via ). However, Jack has chosen to remain silent on the subject, even to this day. So, do Johnny Depp's kids Lily-Rose and Jack Depp have a close relationship?
Johnny Depp's kids, Lily-Rose and Jack Depp are like chalk and cheese. Lily-Rose followed in her mom, Vanessa Paradis' footsteps, becoming a successful model and actor. Meanwhile, Jack is super private and rarely photographed publicly, let alone in a magazine or on a red carpet. However, Lily-Rose and Jack still have a close relationship. He may steer clear of cameras, but Jack's still snapped sometimes, usually cheering on his sister safely from the sidelines. He was spotted back in 2015 watching Lily-Rose strut down the runway for Chanel during Paris Fashion Week, per .
Meanwhile, Lily-Rose clearly worships her little bro. To celebrate his 18th birthday in April 2020, she posted an adorable series of black-and-white shots of them as kids. "My little baby Jackie is 18. My baby bro, my heart and soul, happy birthday I love you SO MUCH!" she
According to , the two often spoke in their native French to communicate privately (and complain about the terrible orange cheese in a can, probably) when they attended school in the U.S. They don't use it on social media, though. Lily-Rose has a significant online presence, which is no surprise given her high-profile modeling career, while Jack has no official online accounts. However, they do share some common ground in addition to DNA. Both remain schtum on their father's embarrassing court battle, hold dual citizenship (French and U.S.), are bilingual, and appear remarkably grounded for celeb kids.
Even Lily-Rose and Jack Depp's looks are entirely different, with the siblings sharing very few physical similarities. She is the spitting image of her mom, Vanessa Paradis, and they look more like sisters than mother and daughter in some photos. "Oh my God, twins!" one commenter on a black-and-white Instagram pic that Lily-Rose posted of her and Paradis hugging. Meanwhile, the older he grows, the more Jack looks like his dad.
Both parents clearly adore their kids. "My boy, Jack, has always been a very talented draftsman," Johnny boasted to the Inquirer (via the). "He draws really, super well. He also plays music very well. He's got a good feel for that." And Johnny loves Lily-Rose so much that reported he gifted her a $7,000 sofa from "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" because she was a big fan of the show at the time — a thoughtful gesture despite sofas not exactly ranking high among young girls' wish lists.
On the other hand, Paradis strived to give the children as regular an upbringing as possible. "I indeed keep them away from the cameras because I don't want our children to be forced to share in our fame against their will," Paradis told Weekend Knack (via ) back in 2007. "They didn't ask for that. Not yet. The day that they will decide for themselves to do things that might bring them into the spotlights, then I won't stop them."
