Johnny Depp names beach after Heath Ledger

Tbd-johnnydepp060109 Take a break from trying to figure out how to keep your mortgage from being 90 days past due and read about Johnny Depp's 45-acre private island in the Bahamas. If you play your cards right, he'll name a beach after you! Oh wait, no, those are all taken.

In the latest vanity Fair, Depp shows off his patch of land, Little Hall's Pond Cay, and its six beaches, all named after special people: partner Vanessa Paradis, 10-year-old daughter Lily Rose, 7-year-old son Jack, Hunter S. Thompson, Marlon Brando and even Heath's Place for Heath Ledger, whom Depp helped replace in the upcoming The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

"It's my way of trying to return to normalcy. Escapism is survival to me," Depp says of his island, which has several small, solar-powered apartments and a fleet of golf carts. We would maybe buy a bicycle to ride to work, if we weren't all scared about possibly being laid off soon.
