LOS ANGELES, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Johnny Depp's publicist says online rumors claiming the Hollywood actor died in a car wreck in France during the weekend are untrue.

"He isn't dead," the actor's representative, Robin Baum, told E! News. "He's fine."

Depp, 46, is best known for his work in "Edward Scissorhands," "Ed Wood," "Sleepy Hollow," "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," "Sweeney Todd" and "The Pirates of the Caribbean" film franchise.
