Johnny Depp fans have expressed their concerns over the actor’s health, after pictures from a trip to Russia have emerged online.
The 54-year-old is seen posing with fans at the Four Seasons Hotel in St Petersburg, but looks pale and gaunt in the shots.
It’s prompted widespread concern from fans, who have flooded social media with messages, some expressing hope that he’s preparing for a film role.
It should be noted that Depp does play a terminally ill academic in an upcoming movie, Richard Says Goodbye but that wrapped last year.
However some fans, who saw him perform with his band the Hollywood Vampires in Hamburg, said that he looked ‘happy and healthy’ when he arrived in Germany.
Rumours of drug use and excessive drinking have swirled around the actor for many years, notably in a number of current legals cases he’s named in.
