While the Twitterverse was previously abuzz with sightings of the Dark Shadows star in Dublin (even starting the hashtag #DeppinDublin), it appears that Johnny just has a very convincing Irish doppelgänger, because this story is...
In fact, Depp was nowhere anywhere near Ireland this week, as had been reported.
A source reveals to E! News that he's been on location all week at a remote area near Moab, Utah shooting The Lone Ranger, his highly anticipated movie costarring Armie Hammer.
Source says the alleged sightings on Twitter are "totally fake" and that Johnny was shooting "all day and night" out in the desert until Saturday.
A movie source continues, "They have been working crazy hours—shooting nights and days and all scenes are just Johnny and Armie in the middle of the desert."
Which would make sense, seeing as the movie is rumored to be behind schedule already. Which leaves little time for any post-split rest and relaxation. The actor and longtime partner Vanessa Paradis recently separated after 14 years together.
Who knows though, maybe all these phony Twitter reports will inspire Tonto himself to make a voyage to the land of the leprechauns after the movie wrap. The Irish could only be so lucky.
