So if this isn’t the sweetest thing we’ve ever heard, then we don’t know what is.
The death of Heath Ledger left some pretty big shoes to fill in his last movie, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus—three people are filling those shoes! Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell are all cast as different transformations of Heath’s character as he travels through different dimensions.
The dark, mystical tale tells the story of a father trying to protect and save his daughter. Well, it looks like the trio is getting pretty deep into their characters because they have all decided to donate their entire paychecks to Heath’s adorable daughter Matilda!
After the Oscar nominee passed, it was discovered that his daughter wasn’t included in the will. The co-stars, all of whom are fathers, want Matilda to be taken care of.
Director Terry Gilliam says of his leading men:
“The three actors were totally heroic coming in. This doesn’t happen very often . . . where there’s a tragedy like this, and very famous, very successful actors suddenly say, ‘Okay, we’ll do whatever it takes to help.’ They came; they did the work; they allowed the movie to be finished; they didn’t take money–the money goes to Heath’s daughter. That’s extraordinary!”
Now let's hope Michelle opens up a college fund for Matilda, stat!
