Gaunt and sunken-cheeked Johnny Depp has suddenly dropped 35 pounds,
and pals fear the party-hearty silver screen pirate has suffered liver damage — or even cancer!
The three-time Oscar nominee appeared frail and sickly at a recent Hollywood dinner party in Venice, Calif.
His wasting, 5-foot-10 stick figure was a shocking contrast to the 53-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star’s pudgy, almost bloated look just 18 months ago!
“Johnny looks like walking death,” says an insider. “He lost 35 pounds in a brief amount of time.”
“His teeth are rotting, his cheeks are sunken, his hair is thinning and falling out and his body is emaciated,” adds the insider.
“Friends of Johnny are very worried that he could be succumbing to liver disease
after years of abusing his body with booze and drugs. There are also concerns about cancer.”
“He looks gaunt and malnourished, like he has terminal cancer,” says New York internist Dr. Stuart Fischer who has not treated the star.
“Friends worry if he doesn’t stop drinking he’ll walk the plank.”
He dismisses questions about his health, saying he’s been under a lot of “stress.”
