Johnny Depp is reported to be in perfectly ‘good health’. He gave his fans a major scare last week when photos of him looking gaunt, weak and pale emerged. The 54-year-old star posed with fans for pictures in Russia and sparked an online concern crisis.

A source close to the star has told Daily Mail that he is not ill and there is nothing to worry about. The actor takes care of his health and is not suffering for any sort of health related conditions. Depp has not commented on this issue and has instead been taking lots of pictures with fans in Russia. The Dark Shadows actor is currently on tour with his band, Hollywood Vampires.

Depp’s fans have multiple theories about his changed appearance. One of them revolves around Depp’s lack of eyeliner, or ‘guyliner’. He usually always has this on when he makes appearances but has decided to forego it entirely while on tour. However, other fans have reasoned that an altered makeup routine cannot be the reason for his complete physical transformation.

Another theory speculates that Depp might have done this to himself for a role in an upcoming film. However, some quick research has revealed that the actor is not set to appear in any movie that would require this drastic change. Allegedly, though, he may have undertaken this transformation for when he appeared in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2. He also shaved off his eyebrows and dyed his hair platinum blond for his role as Gellert Grindelwald.

Asides from having fans worry about his health, Depp has been busy with other activities. His band is on tour this whole year and they are scheduled to play in Berlin on Monday. After that, they will travel to Sweden for another two shows. Later, they will complete their Euro tour by playing through Finland, Poland, Prague, Germany, Denmark and then the UK. They have three shows scheduled there, and will then return to Germany, followed by Rome. This leg of the tour finishes in July.

Depp went on tour with the band on May 17, 2018. However, his Russian fans are not as concerned with his appearance as others. The gaunt actor took a lot of pictures with staff at a state museum and they were just happy to be around him. Further pictures with fans didn’t reveal any worry on their side either, leading some to believe they might have exaggerated their concern.

However, Depp’s appearance is not the only thing he is in the limelight for. He just finished fighting off a month’s worth of accusations claiming he has been abusing alcohol and other substances. Two of his former bodyguards filed a lawsuit against the actor, claiming they had to babysit him at events and, at some point, wipe off a ‘substance’ from his inert face. There have also been claims that Depp spent his day just drinking and chain smoking on the set of his movie, City of Lies. The movie shows him playing an LAPD detective who is looking into the deaths of OG rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.

His representatives have not commented on any of these claims and neither has he.
