Lily-Rose Depp criticized for showing too much ‘breast’ and ‘ass’ in ‘The Idol’

This is what happens when you show your cans at Cannes.

Critics dragged Lily-Rose Depp for showing too much nudity in her new HBO series, “The Idol,” which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday.

The 23-year-old daughter of Johnny Depp — who portrays pop star Jocelyn trying to make a comeback after having a breakdown — was accused of excessively flashing her breasts and bottom in the highly-anticipated show co-created by The Weeknd and “Euphoria” director Sam Levinson.

“Rarely does a scene go by without the camera showing flashes of her breasts or ass,” the Hollywood Reporter wrote about the actress in a scathing review, adding, “You start to wonder if this is building to anything, and by episode two it seems likely that it’s probably not.”

Lily-Rose Depp was dragged for showing “too much” nudity throughout HBO’s new series “The Idol.”

Further, Variety claimed that Lily’s many sex scenes “scandalizes Cannes” in a review published Monday.  

“Revenge porn photos of bodily fluids on Depp’s face, masturbation with ice cubes, nightclub-owning scam artists and vile Hollywood sycophants populated the first two episodes of the already-controversial series,” Variety wrote.

Kyle Buchanan of the New York Times jabbed, “’The Idol,’ or 50 SHADES OF TESFAYE: A Pornhub-homepage odyssey starring Lily-Rose Depp’s areolas and The Weeknd’s greasy rat tail,” referring to The Weeknd’s real name, Abel Tesfaye.

Buchanan added, “Love that this will help launch the HBO Max rebrand, should slot nicely next to ‘House Hunters!’”

Another critic called the second episode of the show “straight-up pornographic.”

“There’s an entire 10-minute scene of The Weeknd talking dirty to Lily while she fingers herself for him, then he tells her to suck his c–k and she gives him head. The worst part is that Sam Levinson originally wanted that scene to be longer, too,” the critic tweeted.

“Rarely does a scene go by without the camera showing flashes of her breasts or ass,” one critic wrote.

The Twitter user added that the show “heavily exploits” Lily, who apparently has sex in every episode.

“I hope she’s okay with it all because it comes off very exploitative,” the critic added.

Others, however, praised Lily for her performance in the controversial show, in which her character meets a club owner named Tedros (The Weeknd) who secretly runs a cult similar to NXIVM.

Deadline called Lily “riveting” and the actress received a five-minute standing ovation after the show’s debut at the French film festival.

The series already faced backlash in April when sources close to production told Rolling Stone that “The Idol” was filled with “torture porn” and “rape fantasy.”

There were also reports that the set was chaotic and toxic during filming.

The show received a five-minute applause after debuting at the Cannes Film Festival.

But Lily denied the claims, telling the Post in a statement in March that Levinson was “the best director I have ever worked with” for “so many reasons.”

“Never have I felt more supported or respected in a creative space, my input and opinions more valued. Working with Sam is a true collaboration in every way — it matters to him, more than anything, not only what his actors think about the work, but how we feel performing it,” she said.

“He hires people whose work he esteems and has always created an environment in which I felt seen, heard and appreciated.”

Both Lily and The Weeknd have defended the show following backlash.

Meanwhile, the “Starboy” singer, 33, savagely responded by posting a scene from “The Idol” to Instagram in which Tedros and Jocelyn agree that her posing on the Rolling Stone cover would be a bad idea because the magazine is “irrelevant” and “past its prime.”

In the caption, he added, “@rollingstone did we upset you ?”

“The Idol,” which has been in the works since 2021, premieres June 4 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
