According to local media, the man’s name is Amin Sa’les and he is a professional model. Amin’s Instagram is full of images of him channeling his inner Johnny Depp, and in some photos even wearing dark sunglasses like the actor. The striking resemblance between him and Johnny has also sparked fan theories online, with some wondering whether the actor had left Hollywood after his defamation lawsuit with ex-wife Amber heard. A fan from Iran wrote on Twitter: “Johnny, what are you doing here?” One Reddit user said: “He (Johnny Depp) left his doppelganger in the states (US) to fool everyone”.
The widely shared video shows Amin Sa’les wearing Johnny’s signature haircut and goatee, as well as dark shades, while participating in a ritual. “Iran has its own Johnny Depp,” one Twitter user wrote while commenting on the video. Meanwhile, an Instagram page apparently belonging to Amin Sa’les was full of comments, where people said he looked like Johnny. He seems to style himself after Johnny in most of the photos shared on his account, which has over 23,000 followers. Some reports said that Amin Sa’les has made several appearances at local agencies because of his resemblance to Johnny.
Meanwhile, Johnny recently struck a seven-figure deal to remain as ambassador of Christian Dior’s cologne Sauvage. The actor is working on Jeanne du Barry, in which he will play King Louis XV. The French film, directed by Maiwenn, marks his return to acting after his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
