Whoa, Momma!

Another reason to love Johnny Depp -- and those other two



We here at Whoa, Momma! have taken our swipes at celebrity parents for doing dumb stuff. From letting their kids fondle their smokes to giving them crazy wild names to just plain thinking that we are crazy enough to believe that they wouldn't have a nanny for their kids (I'm talking to you J-Lo), we like to keep you apprised of what the other half is doing and saying.

But now we are going to give some celebrities a shout out for doing something really, really nice: Giving their pay to the 2-year-old daughter of the late Heath Ledger.

As you all know, Ledger died earlier this year, leaving behind his tot Matilda, who he had not added to his will (that's another lesson for another day). He also had not completed his final movie, "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus," when he overdosed on prescription medication.

But now Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell, who all signed on to play Mom_johnnydepp versions of Ledger's character to help complete the film, have decided to give their pay from the project to Matilda.

Now, we know all three of these actors have been called bad boys at one time or another, but we give them snaps for doing something good.
