Hunky actor Johnny Depp is being plagued by female admirers on the set of new movie The Libertine, who've been hiding in the makeup trailer to get close to him.

The sexy Pirates Of The Caribbean: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL star was not amused when the crew of the period drama discovered two over-amorous women had broken in to the set at Kingston-Upon-Thames, south England nightclub THE OCEANA.

And after forcibly ejecting them once, the resilient fans decided to hide in the make-up department instead.

A source says, "These two girls were very persistent and desperate to get near Johnny. We told them he wasn't there - but they wouldn't take no for an answer.

"We had to remove them twice from the set and once we were even forced to chase them from make-up. Security eventually had to corner them in the Venetian ballroom section of the club and forcibly remove them.

"You can't have a star of Johnny's size being bothered by crazy women running on around the set."
