Lily-Rose Depp Defends Graphic ‘The Idol’ Sex: “Not Interested in Something Puritanical”

June 30, 2023

“We know that we’re making something provocative and we are not shying away from that,” she said. I was never interested in making something puritanical. It’s OK if this show isn’t for everyone and that’s fine — I think all the best art is [polarizing]. So when it comes to the nudity and the risqué nature of the role, that to me was really intentional. Yet Depp added that she hopes to never really say goodbye to her character.
