Hollywood star Johnny Depp has been offered a staggering $10m (€6.3m) to become the face for American condom giant Trojan.

Hollywood star Johnny Depp has been offered a staggering $10m (€6.3m) to become the face for American condom giant Trojan.

According to reports, Trojan bosses believe the 'Donnie Brasco' actor - who is an advocate of safe sex - would considerably boost sales of their Magnum range, and help inspire an anti-AIDS campaign to send free condoms to less economically developed countries.

Although Depp has yet to make a formal decision about the offer, safe sex campaigners have already expressed their approval of Trojan's choice.

A spokeswoman for California's Safer Sex Awareness Campaign says: "We'd welcome seeing a major Hollywood star helping to promote the cause. And there's no one bigger than Johnny."
