A doppelganger of Johnny Depp has taken the internet by storm with his striking resemblance to the Hollywood star. Pictures and videos of the model from Iran has left netizens awestruck. The man was first caught during a religious ceremony in Iran’s Tabriz. An internet user recorded his video during the ceremony and uploaded it on TikTok.
In no time, the video went viral with thousands of likes and comments. Soon, he was identified as Amin Sa’les, a model by profession from the middle east country. Just like Johnny Depp, the man is sporting a long distinct hairstyle. He also has a goatee with matching shades.
Social media users soon tracked him and found his Instagram account in the name of Sa'les (username @dr.aminsales). It has been full of comments from people who complimented him for his striking resemblance to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor.
His instagram handle has many pictures of him where he looks exactly like Johnny Depp. Soon, many users posted hilarious comments on his photoshoots and questioned if Johnny Depp had abandoned acting and Hollywood following his legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard and ran away to Iran.
A user commented, "He left his doppelganger back in the states to fool everybody."
Similarly, another commented, "He's learning how to fend off Amber."
Earlier, in June, another lookalike of Mr Depp went viral from Stockholm with over 2 million views on TikTok and other platforms.
Worth mentioning, Johnny Deep won the much talked about defamation case against his ex wife and actress Amber Heard. Now, Mr Depp has got back to work and has started working on his next project in which he is playing the role of controversial King Louis XV.
Meanwhile, if reports are to be believed, Depp will return to the director’s chair for the first time in 25 years, to direct a biopic on Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani, simply titled Modigliani.
