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.”

    By this time in his life, Johnny had lost HST and Marlon Brando plus some other close friends…then this. Anyone who thinks he has had an easy time of it should guess again. After all this, no wonder he just wanted to do fun films and enjoy his life a little more.

    What he says about the parents is so true! :( they are all slowly dying too

    Johnny has such a beautiful heart. That man goes so far out of the way for so many others he doesn’t seem to have much time for himself.

    So true.

  • Lucky Alexander

    Just a thought…maybe Lily-Rose could do some charity work by going to GOSH herself and tell how grateful she is they were there for her. Might be an added incentive for donors. Might go a long way to help distance herself from the flock of models and actresses who seem so entitled. Just a thought.

    Sorry , but I really think they are pulling for past positive references to cover the trash… Why hasn’t there been anything done before now… Maybe there was since 2007 & I didn’t know……. I’m glad he does visit the hospitals and wants to show support… But honestly, I don’t think they would be reporting it so front and center if he had more positive activities going on… No , this is to cover a yuck home life with a ” to hell in a handbag” woman :( This situation is not his “brightest” moment…. Really I’m disappointed that he is working so hard to try to make it look so good… Lying is never appealing and I honestly hope he doesn’t win the Oscar…wouldn’t even want her touching it 😝 Just to see the look on Ambers face or even her dads… That would be INTERESTING….. Glad her piece of junk remade her treasured car… He’ll need that credit.

    she doesn’t have to do anything. if you’re so high and mighty, get off your computer and go volunteer yourself.

  • Lucky Alexander

    Didn’t mean to pee in your Cheerios, ace…I was just pointing out that this is a great opportunity to give a little back. We in America don’t often teach our kids…any of us. to do that. I’m not high and mighty and I do plenty of volunteer work. My parents taught me to reach back and help others. I guess that concept went right over your head!
