What’s Wrong With Johnny Depp?

Latest photos of the actor show a dramatic change in his appearance.

Fans have voiced their concerns for Johnny Depp after recent photos showed the actor looking gaunt during a trip to Russia.

Staying in St. Petersburg after performing with band Hollywood Vampires, the 55-year-old was happy to pose with fans for snaps inside the Four Seasons hotel, though many couldn’t help but notice that the Pirates of the Caribbean star appeared visibly thinner than usual.

“I think my hero looks ill,” one user said, while another added, “What did you do to our Johnny?”

Others, however, noted that the Depp is set to appear as a terminally ill college professor in the film Richard Says Goodbye, which is currently in post-production and could explain his latest look.

Given his past dedication to characters like Willy Wonka, the Mad Hatter and Edward Scissorhands, we definitely hope this is case.

The star has appeared in headlines of late for his various legal woes, including a lawsuit brought against him by former bodyguards that believe they were forced to work in a toxic environment, as well as a dispute involving his former management over claims they mismanaged his millions.

Last month, he was also accused of attacking a crew member while drunk on the set of the movie LAbyrnth -- a claim which his team vehemently deny.

“Johnny Depp is a consummate professional, great collaborator and a supporter of other artists," Furman said in a statement. "He always treats the crew and people around him with the utmost respect. Movies can be stressful, and non-events often become exaggerated. We all love stories -- there isn't one here," they said.

Let’s hope that Johnny’s just taking his latest role very seriously instead of battling any underlying health issues.
