Rumor: Johnny Depp dating Ashley Olsen

Would Johnny Depp leave this beauty for one of the Olsen twins?

Do we believe this? Can we afford to believe it without going mad?

Do we believe Johnny Depp would trade in Paradisal Parisian Partner of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis, 39, for that blonde bit of blonde Main Street America junk, Ashley Olsen?

Sure, Ashley is sweet and all, but seriously?

Factor in the age difference -- he's 48, she 25 -- and it's just gross.

(That said, we notice that Ashley and Vanessa do seem to have a similar body type. Maybe Depp has a thing for waifish cuti-pies.)

I might understand if Depp were drawn to Ashley's more artistic, thespian sis, Elizabeth Olsen, who is terrific in her feature debut, Martha Marcy May Marlene, a disturbing drama about a cult whose theology sanctions sexual abuse.

Depp and Elizabeth? Even that would be too weird.

ITW's report is the latest in a slew of rumors which claim Depp and Paradis have broken up.

The couple have two children, Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, 9.

They have said they try to spend most of their time in their manse in Plan-de-la-Tour, a remote village near the Mediterranean coast in southeastern France. They also own homes in Los Angeles, the Paris suburb of Meudon, New York, not to mention an entire island in the Bahamas.

No Olsen could wrench Depp away from all that ...

Could she?
