All Class...

The three stars who completed Heath Ledger's final film role have donated their pay to his two year old daughter.

Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell were worried for Matilda’s future as Heath left an old will which did not include the girl.

They played versions of his character Tim in fantasy epic The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus.

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.”

Heath, 28, died in his New York flat in January from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.

well i agree to some point that someone else could have used it more, but still i think this is a very nice gesture and the girl deserves it all the way as long as it actually goes to the girl when she is old enough and not to pay for mommy's new car jewelry or surgery so to speak
