Johnny Depp is said to have mixed feelings about his daughter Lily-Rose’s early start into modelling and acting.

(Cover) - EN Showbiz - Johnny Depp is reportedly worried about his teenage daughter’s modelling career.

The actor, who is married to Amber Heard, has daughter Lily-Rose, 16, with his ex-partner Vanessa Paradis.

Despite her young age, the blonde beauty is already making waves in the fashion world, most recently appearing in a shoot for Vogue Paris.

But while she’s rising through the ranks, her father is thought to have mixed feelings.

“To be honest, I’m quite worried,” he allegedly told Germany’s Gala magazine. “I wasn’t expecting all this to happen to Lily-Rose, especially not at this age. But it’s her passion and she’s having fun.”

Lily-Rose isn’t just hitting the catwalk – she’s also in the process of filming The Dancer, out next year. In addition to the biographical movie about dancer Loïe Fuller, the young star also has films Yoga Hosers, Planetarium and Moose Jaws coming out.

Despite any worries her dad may have, the Black Mass actor will always be on hand with advice.

“She knows I’m always there for her,” he reportedly added.

Lily-Rose has certainly turned herself into the It-Girl of the moment, with 840,000 followers on her Instagram account. Her popularity also bagged her a campaign for French fashion house Chanel. In the ads she models creative director Karl Lagerfeld’s new eyewear.

“(She is a) baby doll in a world imbued with sweetness and femininity,” he praised her.

“Lily-Rose is ravishing, she is a girl from the new generation with star qualities.”

It’s hardly surprising Lily-Rose is doing so well. Not only has she inherited her parents’ good looks, she also has their talent, with Johnny a three-time Oscar nominee and Vanessa working as a singer, model and actress throughout her successful career.
