While picking up his latest award for Black Mass at the Palm Springs Film Festival this weekend, Johnny Depp took the time to pay a special tribute to wife Amber Heard. Tissues at the ready…
“I have to thank my wife, Amber, for putting up with me, for living with all these characters, which can’t be easy,” he said, reports US Magazine. “It’s hard for me – it’s got to be hard for her.”
Depp has also been opening up about his relationship with daughter Lily Rose in a rare (and sweet) interview.
The 16-year-old is quickly rising up the fashion ranks to become one of the most interesting and sought after young models in the industry. And it hasn’t escaped Johnny’s notice.
‘She’s been snatched up by Karl Lagerfeld – which is a coincidence, as he spotted her mother when she was the same age, too’, he told Daily Mail.
But the A-lister isn’t totally at ease with some of her grown-up looks. ‘When I see her with make-up and all that stuff, it’s really disturbing, because she’s a very beautiful girl, and it’s all happening so fast,’ he admitted.
Naw. Sounds like every other dad on the planet.
The 52-year-old continued: ‘It’s such a funny thing when you see your daughter transitioning from your baby, your little girl, to suddenly being a young woman.
‘If you’re not really looking for it, you can miss it, and Lily-Rose is on that road already and there’s nothing I can do to stop it… No matter how grown up she gets, I’ll never stop worrying about her. It’s a father-daughter thing.’

Johnny also made some seriously cute comments about how close he and Lily are. Speaking about when she came out as gender fluid earlier this year, Depp said:
‘She’s got thousands of followers on social media, and they were all taken completely by surprise. But not me.’
‘I already knew because she tells me everything – she’s not afraid to say anything to me. We’re super-tight and I’m very proud of our relationship.’
He added: ‘Whatever she is doing, if she needs any advice, I’m there for her. Kids are going to make their own decisions, but I guess that the only thing you can do as a parent is to offer support. And I do.’
Sorry, David Beckham. But we think you’ve got a rival for the new Dad Of The Year Award…
