She was photographed with her mom, flying out of LAX, yesterday. She must be doing classes online, or something.
The kids both attend private school in L.A. and many times in the past they left classes to accompany their parents. I'm sure this school pupils' parents (and possible also the students) work in the showbiz so it's easier to get permission.
I saw a video. The most criticism-worthy to me is the fact that she was without her bodyguard and maybe that's something that Vanessa could do easily, because i don't think paparazzis are interested on her in the way they are on Lily now and she always was with her bodyguard, so why not now? when she needs it more
About the rest as Agus said, her parents also started young and left the school around her age, so likely isn't something that they couldn't handle or to talk with her, etc
My main problem with all these aren't her pictures, nor that she's stepping into the spotlight (because it's something that she want to do), nor even her fans (but take a look to twitter by the way, not all her "fans" are kids!)...it's this kind of new "IT" girl tag the media put on her and not because what it means now, but because what it means in the future...they start loving her, then following her everywhere, to end criticizing her (for all the unavoidable silly things that teenagers do, and she will do more than sure)
But i'm not sure how that treatment could be avoided? I don't think there's a way to avoid it with her on the spotlight (look to what happens with her dad. they loved him and then they hate him with the same force. That could be hard to handle as a teenager and her mother knows it better than any other person)
But i hope she's prepared for the criticism (first, starting with the people comparing her talent to her father in the next movie, that's for sure). The unkind comments accusing "nepotism" and of course, to be questioned to try to get info about her father/parents/family/etc
Natalie Portman and Lily Rose Depp, the daughter of actor Johnny Depp, will play spiritualist sisters in “Planetarium,” a 1930s-set drama to be directed by French helmer Rebecca Zlotowski (“Grand Central”), Variety has learned.
“Planetarium” will mark Portman’s first time working with a French director since her role in Luc Besson’s “Leon” in 1994. She’s been beefing up on her French to prepare for the role.
Although plot details are kept under wraps, Zlotowski told Variety that the film follows the journey of sisters who are believed to possess the supernatural ability to connect with ghosts. They cross paths with a visionary French producer while performing in Paris.
The political context of “Planetarium” will have a modern resonance with the current crisis and rise of extremism in Europe. The character of the producer is freely inspired by Jewish producer Bernard Natan, one of the biggest French film industry figures of the ’20s and ’30s, who eventually died in Auschwitz.
Thanks taip! I gather that this will be a French-language film, so I wonder how accessible it will be to those of us in the US (for instance, most of Vanessa's more recent films have been released here but a number of them, especially her older films, have not). It'd be interesting to hear Lily-Rose speak French There is quite a large age difference between Natalie and Lily-Rose, but perhaps that will be explained and be part of the plot. Interesting. Congrats, Lily-Rose!
I've read so many comments the past weeks about how much Lily resembles to "Natalie Portman" (and AnnaSophia Robb) that it looks like a good casting
I don't want to be disrespectful with Kevin Smith and her other movies, but this project seems as the real start of her career to me (like i could interpret the others two movies a bit as "play thing", like not to serious, like she may or may not continue a career after helping the Dad of her friend with his movie, etc)
