Johnny Depp‘s reps have canceled all of the actor’s upcoming media appearances after recent pictures of his gaunt appearance prompted queries about his health.
The 55-year-old actor was asked about his health by a German journalist, prompting ‘panic among the large Depp camp’ and a subsequent publicity crisis, The Times Magazine reported.
The status of Depp’s health made for a hot topic on social media after the Edward Scissorhands actor was snapped with fans at the Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia while touring with his band, The Hollywood Vampires.

Depp, who’s partnered with rock icons Alice Cooper and Joe Perry in the musical outfit, sported a noticeably thinner face in the shots.
The actor, who’s played Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, wore a black cap that read FUGLY Los Angeles with a black T-shirt that read, ‘Stay Humbled or Be Humbled.’
The actor was enjoying ‘good health’ and did not have any ailments, a source revealed to DailyMail.com earlier this month after the public buzz over his well-being.
The Hollywood veteran has since looked fuller and healthier in subsequent photos slapped in Warsaw, Poland on his tour with Cooper and Perry.

Depp, who remains in demand in Tinseltown, has five films currently in different states of production, including Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Richard Says Goodbye, City of Lies, London Fields and The Invisible Man.
It was not immediately clear if he was shedding pounds for one of the parts.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – which production ended on late last year – required a shaved head and bleached eyebrows for the role of Gellert Grindelwald.
