Johnny Depp Shows His Gratitude

January 15th, 2008 // 7 Comments

That shy grin of his kills me almost as much as reading that Johnny Depp recently donated almost $2 million to the hospital, where his daughter Lily-Rose was treated last year for kidney failure. Disney, the studio behind the wildly successful trilogy starring Johnny, “The Pirates of the Caribbean,” more than matched Depp’s efforts by donating about $20 million dollars to the children’s medical center.

As a token of his gratitude, Depp made the donation, and gave out invites to the London premiere of his film, “Sweeney Todd,” to the medical staff. In addition, he also donned his Captain Jack Sparrow costume to read stories to patients last week. I wonder how much it would take to get home to show up to my house in that outfit and…read to me.

    I think this story came out the same day that Britney couldn’t be bothered with traveling across town to the courthouse for her kids.

    Johnny absolutely exemplifies what a celebrity should be!

    Plus, he’s a total hottie.
