Johnny Depp donates $2 million to hospital



Tbdjohnnydepp011808 We don’t always get to give you the good news, but Australia’s Herald Sun managed to find out that Johnny Depp secretly visited Great Ormond Street Hospital in London on Wednesday to donate about $2 million as a thanks for saving his daughter Lily-Rose’s life.

You’ll remember his 8-year-old daughter spent nine days at the hospital with kidney failure after being infected with E. coli. And as if the money wasn’t enough, Depp last week invited five doctors and nurses to a premiere party in London for Sweeney Todd.

Not enough for you? The paper also says Depp dressed up as Capt. Jack Sparrow, shambled into the hospital in character and spent four hours telling bedtime stories to patients. This is the kind of stuff that makes The Juice* glad it ridicules other worthless celebs for being screwups, savvy?
