According to the UK’s The Sun, the three Hollywood stars who completed Heath Ledger’s final film role (also featuring Andrew Garfield) have donated their pay to his two-year-old daughter, Matilda.
Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell were worried for Matilda’s future as Heath left an old will which did not include the little one.
Heath’s dad, Kim Ledger, is in control of Heath’s estate. Family members have said they’re concerned that daddy will mismanage the actor’s money.
The three played versions of Heath’s character, Tim, in fantasy epic THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR. PARNASSUS.
Film director Terry Gilliam said, “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.”
Johnny Depp is a father of two, Jude Law has four and Colin Farrel has a son.
Andrew recently did an interview with “VULTURE” and he shared his thoughts on topics like Judd Apatow and Heath Ledger.
“Judd Apatow is genius, I think. He’s defining this decade of comedy, like what Monty Python did for their generation. I’d love to work with him.”
“The amount of stuff he left me with was astonishing. I will never ever lose hold of what he had to offer. He just had this total spontaneity and the ability to do anything at any point: fly off the handle or joke. It was electrifying and I never knew what he was going to do ? like punch me, you know? But how he did it is a mystery to me.”

READ THE INTERVIEW:
“Boy A” is a fictional story starring Andrew Garfield (Lions for Lambs) as Jack. His involvement in the murder of another child means Jack, at 24, has spent most of his young life in juvenile prisons. Released from prison into an unrecognizable adult world, Jack is given a new name, new job, new home; a new life. But anonymity is both a blessing and a curse as Jack has to contend with not being able to tell the people he gets to know, and love, of his true past and the monstrous secret he must keep hidden.
The drama also stars acclaimed actor and director Peter Mullan (“The Magdalene Sisters,” “Children of Men”) as Terry, Jack’s care worker and the only person he can really trust.
Co-starring Shaun Evans (“Teachers”) and Katie Lyons (“Green Wing”), “Boy A” is based on the award-winning novel by Jonathan Trigell, has been adapted for the screen by writer Mark O’Rowe and is directed by John Crowley (“Pinter’s Celebration,” “Intermission”).
The film is set to be released on JULY 23, 2008 in selective theatres. Movie trailer and more information to follow shortly.
