Depp, Law & Farrell's Gift To Ledger's Daughter

Depp, Law & Farrell's Gift To Ledger's Daughter (16 August 2008 7:15 AM, PDT)
Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell have donated their fee for completing Heath Ledger's final film role to the late star's daughter.

The acting trio agreed to play versions of Ledger's character Tony in The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus following his death in January and they decided to donate their fees to two-year-old Matilda - Ledger's daughter with actress Michelle Williams - because the star left an old will which did not include the little girl.

Director Terry Gilliam has praised the actors for their generosity, saying: "They didn't take money - it goes to Heath's daughter.
"That's extraordinary! And wonderful... and when you're part of that, you think, 'Ah, this is maybe why I went into the movies in the beginning. I thought it would be full of wonderful people.' And we've got a movie full of wonderful people who did extraordinary things to help.

I've always enjoyed Johnny Depp's acting, as well as a majority of the characters that he takes. He's one of those "pretty boys" that girls fawn over, but he really never takes a pretty boy movie roll - often times taking parts that are less than attractive. Jack Sparrow, Sweeney Todd (aka Benjamin Barker), Willy Wonka, Ichabod Crane, Edward Scissorhands ... none of these are really what one would call a pretty boy part.

And he does each one so convincingly and amazingly that you just can't help admiring the guy.
