Johnny Depp was recently named the Sexiest Man Alive. We are happy to report that he still is. Alive, that is. Well, and sexy too. But very much among the living.
Proving that some people online are complete losers with no lives who really need to get out more (unlike THG readers, who are awesome!) Johnny Depp was faux-killed in France by Internet rumors after a car crash late Saturday.
There's about as much truth to this as his romance with Angelina Jolie.
Yet whoever concocted the story, it apparently worked at least to a degree, as fans have been tweeting "RIP Johnny Depp" right into a Twitter trending topic.
E! News confirms, thankfully, that Depp is alive, well, and accident-free.
"He isn't dead," Depp's rep, Robin Baum, said Monday A.M. "He's fine."
The actor has been linked to death rumors in the past, including an elaborate hoax using images of wrecked vehicles and a fake CNN website reporting it.
Again, too much time on your hands, death rumor-starters.
Johnny Depp is not dead. He is alive and very hot.
Not that he's alone in falling victim to this pastime. Taylor Lautner, Jeff Goldblum, Tom Hanks, Miley Cyrus, and others have been falsely reported dead lately.
