Matilda Ledger’s Guardian Angels
The late Heath Ledger‘s daughter Matilda was spotted skipping along the streets of NYC yesterday with her mom Michelle Williams in the cutest pink sundress. Every time I see a photo of the 2-year-old I can’t believe how much she looks like her dad. He definitely lives on through her.
As most of you probably know, Heath was filming Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus” at the time of his death. Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell stepped in to complete Heath’s role, playing different versions of his character “Tim.”
When the three actors learned that Ledger’s will had not been updated to include his daughter, the generous trio decided to donate all the money they earned from the film to little Matilda!
It’s good to know that there are a few nice guys in Hollywood.
Very classy, fellas, very classy. I’ve got to have a lot of respect for stars who are willing to give up their fat paychecks to make sure that a poor, fatherless child is provided for for the rest of her life. Sure, Michelle Williams is talented, but she really does have her hands full, and I’m sure it’s going to take her a long time to deal with Heath Ledger dying…and to deal with her daughter asking the inevitable questions about her father…and wondering why Daddy is never coming back. I hope that those three, who are all fathers themselves, will take time out to visit with Matilda as well…especially Johnny Depp, as I’ve heard that he’s a good father to his kids.
