Age, Early Life, and Education Background
Jack John Christopher Depp III was born under the Aries zodiac sign on 9 April 2002, in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Paris, France, and so is 21 years old as of 2023. His father, John Christopher II, aka Johnny Depp, has appeared in multiple commercially successful films, including “Edward Scissorhands,” “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” and “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” among others. Moreover, his mother, Vanessa Chantal Paradis, was awarded the Prix Romy Schneider, which is the highest honor in France for her work as a singer and actress. Jack’s elder sister is the model and actress, Lily-Rose Depp, who appeared in the TV series “The King” and “The Idol.” She was born on 27 May 1999, which makes her three years older than Jack.
Jack is bilingual, speaking fluent French and English. His sister has revealed that their parents were very keen on protecting them from the spotlight when they were growing up. His parents were never legally married, parting ways when he was 10 years old, ending their 14 years of togetherness.
Jack spent most of his childhood in France, where he attended a private high school for several months, then later joined another high school in Los Angeles, California. He loved playing soccer and skateboarding when he was a teenager, but also took music and acting classes, and appeared in his school’s plays.
Jack has remained tight-lipped about his career choice – he’s only appeared in one film project, the 2016 Kevin Smith-written and directed horror movie “Yoga Hosers”, sharing the screen with his father Johnny and sister Lily-Rose, and Harley Quinn Smith. In an interview with The Philippine Daily Inquirer, Johnny Depp revealed that his son is a talented singer and drawer, adding that apart from the 2016 film and school plays, he hasn’t shown any desire to pursue an acting career.
Depp has appeared in several commercials, and has also partnered with many modeling agencies. Moreover, he accompanies his parents to award shows and other celebrity events. He’s active on Instagram (@jackidepp), and has around 20,000 followers.
Jack has kept his personal life away from the limelight. It was rumored that he was in a romantic relationship with the French model and singer Camille Jansen, after they were spotted holding hands in the UK in 2020. Camille has a huge fanbase on Instagram, and is a talented musician who’s released several songs such as ‘Sunny Days.’ She shared her photo with Jack on his 18th birthday, in which Jack is seen lying on her lap with a designer hat covering half of his face, and which she captioned ‘Happy Birthday My Love.’ Jack and Camille haven’t confirmed whether they were dating, but as of 2023, Jack is unmarried and doesn’t have children.
Depp shares a strong bond with his sister and father. Lily-Rose celebrated his 18th birthday by posting a series of their throwback photos on Instagram, captioned with heartwarming messages saying that she loved him unconditionally, and even referred to him as her ‘heart and soul.’ Johnny Depp has inked Jack’s tattoo on his wrist – it shows a flying sparrow with the sun in the background and ‘Jack’ written below it; Johnny also has a tattoo of Lily-Rose on his chest.

Jack’s Father’s Legal Issues
In 2018, Johnny sued News Group Newspapers for defamation after The Sun published the article ‘GONE POTTY How Can J K Rowling be ‘genuinely happy’ casting wife-beater Johnny Depp in the new “Fantastic Beasts” film?’ However, he lost the case after the UK High Court of Justice ruled that most of the violence incidents claimed by his ex-wife, Amber Heard, were ‘substantially true.’ He was later asked to resign from the film series “Fantastic Beasts” by the production firm, Warner Bros.
In February 2019, Depp sued Heard for defamation over her 2018 op-ed for the newspaper, The Washington Post, in which his ex-wife claimed that he sexually and physically abused her; he denied the allegations, saying that it was Heard who had assaulted him. He claimed that publishing the prose piece tarnished his name, which meant many production companies such as Disney declined to cast him in their future projects. Depp won the case, and was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages, and $5 million (later reduced to $350,000) in punitive damages.
Height, Weight, and Physical Appearance
Jack bears a striking resemblance to his father Johnny Depp. He’s of white ethnicity and has a set of hazel eyes and dark brown hair, is 5ft 10ins (1.78m) tall, and weighs approximately 150lbs (68kgs).
Jack has a net worth of approximately $1.5 million as of 2023, and is seemingly leading a lavish lifestyle with his family. On the other hand, his dad has made a name for himself in the American entertainment industry and has accumulated a net worth of an impressive $150 million from his well-established acting and singing careers. Moreover, his mother, Vanessa is worth around $100 million, as of 2023.
Jack Depp’s Father, Johnny Depp
John Christopher Depp II is a native of Owensboro, Kentucky, who was born on 9 June 1963, which makes him 60 years old as of 2023. His father, John Christopher Depp was a civil engineer, and his mother Betty Sue Depp was a waitress. Johnny has received multiple accolades such as a Golden Globe Award, and has been nominated for many other awards including three Oscars. He made his film debut in the 1984 supernatural horror “A Nightmare on Elm Street”, and has since appeared in many other movies, including “Sleepy Hollow,” “Finding Neverland,” “Alice in Wonderland,” and “Public Enemies” among others.
He’s collaborated with the acclaimed director Tim Burton on multiple projects. Depp is the CEO of the production firm Infinitum Nihil – his sister serves as president of the company. In 2015, Depp formed the rock supergroup Hollywood Vampires, together with Joe Perry and Alice Cooper, and they’ve released several albums including “Hollywood Vampires” and “Rise.”
From 1983 to 1985, Depp was married to make-up artist Lori Anne Allison. He also dated the actresses Sherilyn Fenn, Jennifer Grey and Winona Ryder. After he ended his relationship with Paradis, Johnny began dating her “The Rum Diary” co-star Amber Heard – they walked the aisle in February 2015, but their marriage was short-lived, as Heard filed for divorce in mid-2016 claiming that Depp was physically and verbally abusive. Their divorce was finalized in 2017, and Depp was ordered to pay a settlement of $7 million – Heard pledged to donate the whole amount to charity.
