Report: Heath Ledger's Co-Stars Donate Film Earnings to His Daughter

Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell have donated the money they made for completing Heath Ledger's final film role to the late actor's daughter Matilda, The Sun reports.

The three actors played versions of Ledger's character, "Tim," in the film "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus."

The stars were reportedly concerned with Matilda's future, because Ledger had not updated his will at the time of his death to include his 2-year-old daughter. So they decided the money they made for the film should go to her, the Sun reported.

“That’s extraordinary! And wonderful," the Sun quoted director Terry Gilliam as saying. "...And when you’re part of that, you think, ‘Ah, this is maybe why I went into the movies in the beginning. I thought it would be full of wonderful people.'"

Ledger, 28, died on Jan. 22, 2008, from an accidental drug overdose in his Manhattan apartment.
