10 months ago

The pair was recently “spotted together” and the rumors started spreading like wildfire. Some fans are assured that 20-year-old Jenna Ortega is dating 60-year-old Johnny Depp. The “news” spread so fast that even the actors themselves couldn’t help but reacted to it.

They were “spotted together”.

It all began with a rumor that started spreading when a gossip account mistakenly claimed that Depp and Ortega had been seen together. The “news” went viral on the internet, and before you knew it, people were speculating like never before. Some were convinced they were dating, while others had theories that Depp might be working with Jenna in Beetlejuice 2.

Jenna addressed the rumors on Instagram.

The actress didn’t waste a second to clear things up about her supposed relationship with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor. She posted on her Instagram story, “This is so ridiculous I can’t even laugh. I have never met or worked with Johnny Depp in my life. Please stop spreading lies and leave us alone.”

Depp’s spokesperson was quick to jump in and clarify everything. Their statement left no room for doubt, “Mr. Depp has no personal or professional relationship with Ms. Ortega whatsoever. He has never met her or spoken to her. He is not involved in any project with her, nor does he intend to be. He is appalled by these baseless and malicious rumors that are intended to harm his reputation and career.”

They both worked with Tim Burton.

Jenna and Johnny both collaborated with Tim Burton, which undoubtedly fuelled some of the rumors. For years, Depp was considered Burton’s preferred leading man. On the other hand, Ortega is a relative newcomer to Burton’s world, having recently starred as Wednesday Addams in Netflix’s series Wednesday. Additionally, Ortega will join the cast of the long-anticipated Beetlejuice 2.

Jenna has tirelessly battled against prevailing prejudices and typecasting. In this article, we share the details of her inspiring journey and reveal how she uses her fame to help others.
