She became world famous overnight and has today become a role model for other young, Latin American women. She knows who’s going to play her when the movie about her life comes out And then she finds it both disappointing and sexist that people think she’s dating Johnny Depp.

This is what star lawyer Camille Vasquez says in a new interview with Access Hollywood.

This is not the first time she has appeared in a TV interview. But this is the first time it’s about her persona and not about the injury case between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, which came to an end earlier this month.

And the 37-year-old lawyer has certainly also noticed that there has been a completely different attention to both her privacy and her work since she was hired as Johnny Depp’s lawyer in the inflamed case.

‘If anyone had told me that on the first day of law school, I would have said,‘ You make fun of me ’. Of course, there is a bit of luck involved, but it is due to a lot of hard work, ”she tells Access Hollywood.

Since Johnny Depp – and thus also his lawyer – became the big winner of the case in the decision on June 1, Camille Vasquez has been promoted to partner in the law firm Brown Rudnick.

But already during the six-week trial, she became a media star. While the vast majority of lawsuits are notoriously closed, the public was welcomed in the case between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, which was livestreamed online.

That meant TikTok, Instagram and other social media quickly flooded with viral clips of Johnny Depp making the audience laugh with his dry sarcasm during the interrogation, or Amber Heard being grilled by an extremely well-prepared Camille Vasquez.

And that quickly made the lawyer an A-list celebrity on par with the Hollywood clients she represents.

Today, one can buy T-shirts with the caption ‘Camilla Vasquez for president’, just as many are wondering who comes first with the feature film about her life.

“I’m just a lawyer who does her job and represents her client the way lawyers should,” she says humbly in the interview with Access Hollywood, where she also comes up with her own suggestions on who should play her in such a film:

Salma Hayek or Eva Longoria. She is often compared to the latter in particular, she says.

Like the two famous actresses, Camille Vasquez is also Latin American. Her mother is from Cuba, while her father is Colombian. Camille Vasquez herself was born in San Francisco, California, and graduated in law from Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles.

She specialized from the start in civil litigation and has represented Ben Affleck, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lopez, among others, before she became a lawyer for Johnny Depp just over four years ago.

In the interview with Access Hollywood, she says she is moved when other Latin American women and girls tell that they see her as a role model.

For example, she mentions an episode during the recent case where she could not stop crying when a mother came up to her and told her that she had let her daughter drop out of school so she could meet her.

But it has not only been positive to be Camille Vasquez. The famous TikTok clips, which flourished during the trial, for example, also showed clips of Johnny Depp and his lawyer hugging, giggling and touching each other in ways that quickly made them wonder if they were more than just friends and professional.

Speculation that Camille Vasquez has previously called both ‘disappointing’ and ‘sexist’.

“But that’s probably just the way it is when a woman does her job,” she said sharply People.

Fortunately, her boyfriend, Edward Owen, CEO of real estate company WeWork, has not taken care of the rumors, she says.

“He is wonderful and supportive. He loves me and has met Johnny, and he knows I have worked for him for 4.5 years, so it was never a problem. “
