Worried dad? Though Johnny Depp rarely opens up about his personal life, a new interview with Germany’s Gala magazine quotes the three-time Oscar nominee as expressing concern for his 16-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose Depp.

"To be honest, I'm quite worried,” he reportedly said (according to translation from The Huffington Post). “What's happening with Lily-Rose right now isn't what I expected. Definitely not at this age. But these are her passions and she's having fun."

The teenage daughter of Depp, 52, and his ex Vanessa Paradis, has been trying her hand at modeling. She walked the runway in a recent Chanel show, appeared in a music video, had her own spread in Vogue Paris’ October issue, and is the face of a French luxury eyewear campaign. 

Depp, who is also dad to son Jack, 13, with Paradis, added of his teen daughter, "She knows that I'm always there for her.” 

There was no response from Depp’s rep when asked to validate the quotes to Us Weekly.
