Conor McGregor and film star Johnny Depp share whiskey together.
McGregor met the actor while on vacation in Rome, and encouraged the former “Pirates of the Caribbean” star to try his “Proper 12” whiskey.
The UFC ace posted a series of photos from his encounter with Depp on Instagram, thanking him for his hospitality.
He said: “Me and John Depp enjoying a fine glass of Proper Twelve on the rocks.
“Thank you for your kindness and hospitality to my friends and family Johnny! A proper gentleman.”
In a series of snaps, Depp can be seen posing with both McGregor and the Irishman’s partner Dee Devlin, while he was seen holding hands with Connor’s mother Margaret.
In the comments, Connor’s sister, Aoife, lamented that she was not there for the chance encounter, saying: “In the depths of it I was not there.”
Despite fan jokes that McGregor was seen forcing Depp to have some of his whiskey, photos show the two enjoying the drink in each other’s company.

In response to his meeting with Depp, McGregor revealed that he dressed as Jack Sparrow – the character the actor played in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise – for Halloween.
Their encounter occurred when McGregor and his family were in Italy for the christening of their son, Ryan.
The holiday ended controversially, however, when he was accused of punching an Italian DJ, breaking his nose in the process.
The DJ in question has since launched an official police complaint against the former UFC champion.
It joins a separate personal injury claim made against McGregor by a different person, which is set to be heard next year.
McGregor has denied all claims of wrongdoing against him.
