Was Johnny Depp in Falmouth and Penzance?

Mid Devon Star: Was Johnny Depp in Falmouth and Penzance? Was Johnny Depp in Falmouth and Penzance?

Rumours are rife that Pirates of the Caribbean star and mega-hunk Johnny Depp was walking the streets of Falmouth and Penzance yesterday.

The 50-year-old actor, who was reportedly the highest paid actor in the world last year, was spotted by a number of people - although not all the "sightings" are that convincing.

Danni Callahan was adamant that she saw Mr Depp in Falmouth town centre at 4.30pm.

She said: "We were like, that looks like [him] but we didn't know he was that short!"

West Cornwall community radio station Penwith Radio, meanwhile, said they "heard on the grapevine" that the Hollywood star was in Penzance about 3.30pm.

And that's where the rumour mill started to take over.

Facebook user "Jess Was-Ere" said: "I actually saw him on Sunday morning filling up at the petrol station in Fraddon.

"I knew it was him as soon as I googled him, as I recognised a tattoo he had on his wrist - like a cuff thing.

"I'm about 95 per cent sure it was him," she added, "best hangover ever!"

James Cherry replied: "He's popped over to mow my lawn. He's good like that."

According to "Camionero de Peter" Mr Depp was spotted by "a lad I trust" and Joe Smile added: "He's in Sennen, third caravan from the gate."

But perhaps the most believable of the sightings came from Alison Blayney.

"He just met us at the Waterside Meadery, straight off his boat," she said. "Liked the chicken, drank the mead and was gone!"

The Meadery were unavailable for comment.

Oh, is that Johnny Depp? He slept on my sofa two nights back... said he couldn't find a place to stay.

Without the eyeliner, I just thought he was an aging backpacker down on his luck.

Celebrities generally are a curse on us all, especially the young who seem to be convinced that being self-centred and thick is something to aspire to. Mr Depp is just an actor but the hysteria these film actors generate where ever they is a bit of a pain for us and them, I'm sure.
Cornwall is better off without them. It sounds harsh but when they move in near you it's not good. Believe me.

Good God no! Can you imagine? It would be like living in a paparazzi, screaming school girl, stalking nutter hell. It was bad enough when Brad Pitt visited Cornwall for a couple of days.

I think this was just a lame attempt to generate pirate-related publicity ahead of the Sea Shanty Festival. Fell a bit flat.
Arrrrrrrrr!
