Johnny Depp is currently touring with his band, Hollywood Vampires, and when he left his show at the Tollwood Festival in Munich last week, he looked just like Captain Jack Sparrow with his flowy hair, multiple necklaces, and manliner. It is a big improvement from his gaunt appearance in photos last month, and the latest pics come as the French media is reporting that his 16-year-old son Jack has “serious health problems.”
People Magazine is reporting that both Depp and his son are doing just fine, and once his tour ends later this month, he will be spending time with both of his kids. Then, in September the three-time Oscar nominee will have two movies coming out – City of Lies and London Fields.
THANK YOU SO MUCH JOHNNY DEPP!!!!!

Last month, Depp caused quite the stir when he appeared haggard, pale, and hollow-eyed in pics from the Russian leg of the Hollywood Vampires tour. The famously handsome actor looked like a sickly, weaker version of himself and it horrified many of his fans.
“I think my hero looks ill,” one fan tweeted. “He looks like someone sucked the life out of him, hope he is OK,” wrote another. A third echoed the general reaction to the pics, “F*** me, is that Johnny Depp?”
Compared to how he appears on screen, Depp was basically unrecognizable in the photos, and some suggested that it was the result of him playing the role of a terminally-ill academic in Richard Says Goodbye.
But, he finished filming that movie last year, so others thought maybe it was the angle of the photo. A celebrity makeup artist pointed out that Depp not wearing his signature eyeliner and that made his eyes look “tired and dull” and his skin extremely pale.
But, for the most part, fans assumed the worst when they saw the pics, and that is most likely because of Depp’s history with drugs and alcohol. When he appeared on the Graham Norton Show last fall with his co-stars from Murder On the Orient Express, his slurred words led many to believe he was drunk or stoned.

And, a month ago, Depp allegedly attacked a location manager from City of Lies, trying to punch him and yelling, “I’ll give you $100,000 to punch me right now!” That happened after Depp had been on set all day “smoking and drinking.”
He also has two former bodyguards suing him for unpaid wages and overtime. But, in their claims, the former police detective and private security veteran say they had to wipe drugs off of Depp’s face and were exposed to unsafe working conditions – including illegal substances and loaded weapons.
Johnny Depp himself has said he poisoned himself for years, and his ex-wife Amber Heard has said he is a cocaine addict. He also reportedly spent $30,000 a month on wine, and even though he is the world’s fifth-highest-paid actor, he lives an ultra-extravagant lifestyle that he can’t afford.
