Heath Ledger’s daughter, Matilda, will likely not have to worry about money matters ever again, thanks to the three stars who stepped in to finish her father’s final film.
Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell, who play different versions of Heath’s character in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, were worried about Matilda’s future as Heath left only an old will which did not include the little girl. So what did they do? They donated their entire paychecks to her!!!
Says director Terry Gilliam: “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.’ “
