A Charitable Celebrity (6/12)

Depp has two children, a daughter and a son. In 2007, his daughter fell seriously ill with an E. Coli infection that caused her kidneys to shut down. She recovered at Great Ormond Street Hospital and so to thank them he visited the hospital later that year in full Captain Jack Sparrow attire and spent four hours there, reading stories to the children. Not only that, the next year he also donated £1 million to the hospital!

When Heath Ledger passed away, leaving filming for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009) incomplete, Depp along with Jude Law and Colin Farrell played him in various shots and gave their salaries from the film to Ledger’s daughter, Matilda.

Let’s not forget to mention he’s rich enough to own an ISLAND apart from having three homes. He also owns a vineyard in France and co-owned the French restaurant-bar Man Ray along with Sean Penn, John Malkovich and Mick Hucknall, though a recent article stated that he’s done with alcohol and has gone vegan. So much for all the fuss over rum.

He’s also famous enough to be spotted rather easily despite being in so many different skins while being on screen. That’s Johnny Depp for you, the man who was voted one of the 50 Most Beautiful People by People Magazine, not once but twice!
