When Lily-Rose Depp posted a photo of her involvement in LGBT activist iO Tillett Wright's photo series Self-Evident Truths, the internet (not us!) prematurely shouted "She's gay!" But that wasn't exactly the 16-year-old actress's intention, she said in a recent interview with Nylon.
"That was really misconstrued, that whole thing. A lot of people took it as me coming out, but that's not what I was trying to do. I was literally doing it just to say that you don't have to label your sexuality; so many kids these days are not labeling their sexuality, and I think that's so cool…It's so fluid and there's so much pressure on kids to label themselves and say, "This is what I am, this is what I like."
And in keeping with her "you don't have to pick something and stick with it" stance, Depp is refusing to categorize herself. "It's not anybody's business, because I am going to date whoever I'm going to date. I was just saying, kids don't need to label their sexualities. It's not that big of a deal." 👏
