Photographs of Johnny Depp posing with fans in Russia over the last week have sparked fears among some that the actor is ‘ill’.
Depp, 54, happily posed for two photographs with female fans before setting off for a performance with his band, The Hollywood Vampires.
The photographs were taken at the Four Seasons hotel in St. Petersburg. The band performed in the city on Wednesday night after playing in Moscow two nights earlier.
The women shared them excitedly on social media afterwards but, among comments from other fans who told them how lucky they were to have met their idol, were concerns over Depp’s appearance.
‘I think that my hero looks ill,’ said one concerned admirer on Facebook.
‘He looks thin,’ said another.
Others did not seem to recognize the Pirates of the Caribbean star at all.
‘F*** me is that Johnny Depp?’ remarked one Twitter user.
In the photographs, Depp appears with a slight smile. He is wearing a hat with the letters ‘FUGLY’ branded across the front and is dressed in a t-shirt and jeans.
His t-shirt read: ‘Stay humble or be humbled.’
In another, taken earlier in the week in Moscow, he was seen with sunglasses on and a hat while posing at a museum. That image provoked more concern with some calling him ‘sick’ and ‘weak’.
