Lily-Rose Depp Loves Being Naked on 'The Idol', Has No Desire to Make Wholesome Family-Friendly Show

The actress who plays the female lead opposite The Weeknd on the new HBO raunchy series insists she didn't feel exploited when she had to take her clothes off for the show.

AceShowbiz - Lily-Rose Depp enjoyed getting naked for saucy scenes in her new TV drama "The Idol". The daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis portrays a pop star trying to make a comeback opposite real life musician Abel "The Weeknd" Tesfaye and the show has raised eyebrows with its raunchy sex scenes - but Lily-Rose, 24, is adamant she didn't feel exploited while filming such provocative material.

"There are many women who have felt exploited by the nudity they've done and have thought, I didn't feel great about that. But I'm comfortable performing in that way, I enjoy it. It informed the character. In the conversation around the risque aspects, there's the implication that it's something being consistently imposed upon women. Obviously, that has been true a lot historically," she explained to the New York Times.

The actress also addressed the controversy surrounding the show - insisting she wasn't interested in making a wholesome family-friendly series. She said, "We always knew that we were going to make something that was going to be provocative and perhaps not for everyone. That was a draw for all of us. I don't think any of us were interested in making anything that was going to be, you know, fun for the whole family."

The Weeknd added, "When I first started making music, it was the exact same thing. It was provocative, and I knew it was going to be tough for people. And a lot of people didn't like it. Not to compare it, but I feel that this is kind of like that again. This is not going to be for everybody, and that's fine. We're not politicians."
