Johnny Depp Talks About Lily-Rose's Hospitalization in 2007

Johnny Depp is opening up about the “darkest period” of his life, when his daughter Lily-Rose was hospitalized for kidney failure back in 2007.

The 52-year-old actor said that he became inspired to do more hospital visits in costume as his movie characters after the time he spent in the hospital that year.

“For me, they’re giving me the gift. I’ve spent time in Great Ormond Street where I was the parent when my daughter was ill. I’ve known darkness in my life, but that was the darkest period ever,” Johnny said.

“I’d always done these visits, but after that experience the visits became more and more important because the kids, they’re so strong and so courageous, but the parents are the ones who are slowly dying,” he added. “To bring a smile or a giggle to the parents means everything in the world to me.”
