54-year-old Johnny Depp, scared his fans when sick looking pictures of him surfaced online which started rumours that the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ actor may be ‘sick’.
Reports have now revealed that Depps’s weight loss was due to a role as a terminal cancer patient in forthcoming film ‘Richard Says Goodbye.’
Taking to Twitter, one wrote: ‘He’s in post-production for #richardsaysgoodbye which is about a terminally ill man. He’s fine.’
Another added: ‘He had to lose weight because his character was diagnosed with a terminal illness.
‘As this movie is still in post-production maybe that’s the reason for him is so thin. So he is not sick!’
Others believe the star has slimmed down in order to appear in a widely rumoured remake of HG Wells’ The Invisible Man.
‘I bet Johnny has lost all the weight for The Invisible Man. It won’t be because he’s unwell.’
A source also told DailyMail.com that Johnny Depp has no health problems.
