There Are Some Good Celebs

Oh a quick post before I go.  Johnny Depp is one of my favorite actors.  Extremely talented. In fact, I think he may be one of the best actors working today.  And now I find out he is also a really nice guy.

Johnny Depp secretly visited Great Ormond Street Hospital yesterday to donate £1 million of his own money to thank staff for saving his daughter’s life.

He arrived unexpectedly at the London children’s hospital where eight-year-old Lily-Rose was treated last year when her kidneys failed.

Last week he invited five Great Ormond Street doctors and nurses to the party for the London premiere of his film Sweeney Todd.

And on November 29, unknown to the public, Depp spent four hours at the hospital telling bedtime stories to patients dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow after having his Pirates Of The Caribbean costume flown over from Los Angeles.

While donating the money is fantastic, and inviting the doctors and nurses over to a party is great, I swear his reading stories to sick kids while in character as Jack Sparrow is just about the coolest thing I have ever heard.

Hat-tip to Blowing Smoke.



  1. I agree !!!

    Unfortunately the first movie I saw him in was “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” … a total dud !!!

    Since then I was impressed with him in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and Platoon.
    I was blown away by him in Donnie Brascoe (if you are a Depp fan you gotta see Donnie Brascoe … Pacino is also in this one … plays an undercover cop).

    Once upon a time in Mexico was also interesting.

    Of course he is now best know for the Pirate’s movies.
    But those are all fluff and special effects.

    Go rent Donnie Brasco if you want to see some great acting !!!

  2. I saw Donnie Brasco . . . great flick. My favorite is Sleepy Hollow.

  3. He’s definitely a class act.

  4. Wow, that is so cool! I never knew he did all that nice stuff…how awesome of him! I mean, I like him as an actor (of course I am a die-hard Pirates of the Caribbean fan!), but man…! Now I love him as a person, especially. Very cool of him. Many thanks for this terrific post!!
