Johnny Depp: I find daughter's fame bizarre

Johnny Depp says that it is "weird" his 12-year-old daughter Lily-Rose is attracting her own fans now.

The pre-teen has recently garnered a lot of attention after being seen out with her mother Vanessa Paradis.

But the Pirates of the Caribbean star told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper that he is uncomfortable with it.

"It's an odd thing when there is a fan page for my daughter who is not yet 13," he said. "This is a little girl who is quite sophisticated and beautiful and a lot of fun but she's a little girl and a student."

"She just happens to be our kid and she certainly finds it weird. I find it bizarre and somewhat ugly."

Johnny added that he is more guarded about talking of his personal life now that Lily and Jack, 10, can read about him online.

"For a long time I tried to manage an honesty and openness about my personal life because I'm human and I'm normal - well, semi-normal," he explained.

"I have to sit my kids down and say, 'Look, this is an occupational hazard for me and your mum. It's out of our hands, so don't go looking for it.'"
