It's stories like this that give me hope that we aren't all going to hell in a handbasket. Ok, so remember when Heath Ledger died and they found out he hadn't updated his will to include his daughter? And his family was acting like idiots and didn't put the money in a trust for her? Heath was also in the process of filming another film, and three actors; Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law stepped in to replace him. The three of them have decided to donate their salary to Matilda.
As most of you probably know, Heath was filming Terry Gilliam's "The Imaginarium
of Dr. Parnassus" at the time of his death. Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell stepped in to complete Heath's role, playing different versions of his character "Tim."
When the three actors learned that Ledger's will had not been updated to include
his daughter, the generous trio decided to donate all the money they earned from
the film to little Matilda!
That is absolutely freaking amazing! And didn't I tell ya'll yesterday how amazing Johnny Depp is? I freaking love him! Thank you Johnny, Jude, and Colin for making my day.
