Matilda Ledger is an Ice Pop Princess

Matilda Ledger is an Ice Pop Princess

Matilda Ledger, the 2-year-old daughter of Michelle Williams and the late Heath Ledger licks away at her ice pop while going for a stroll in the Brooklyn neighborhood of New York City on Monday.

And luckily for Matilda, the three stars who completed Heath Ledger‘s role in his final film, The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, have donated their paychecks to her.

Apparently Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell did the fantasy epic movie out of the goodness of their hearts, reports The Sun.

Director Terry Gilliam said: “They didn’t take money — it goes to Heath’s daughter. That’s extraordinary! And wonderful . . . 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. And we’ve got a movie full of wonderful people who did extraordinary things to help.”

    She’s no Suri Cruise, who is the end all and be all of celebrity babies. All babies are cute, but none can compare to the perfect exquisiteness that is Suri Cruise.

    All hail Suri, Katie, and Tom!

    You are right, she is no Suri Cruise. Matilda isn’t a robot. She has expressions, she laughs, she plays, she shows joy!

  • Helena

    I really like the dress. I remember Kirsten Dunst wore it first, though!

    splitting image of her dad :(

  • Lin

    What a wonderful act of kindness! I get tired of hearing all the crap written about stars, it’s nice to hear that these stars were selfless enough to do this wonderful act, which I’m sure is in honor of her daddy. No matter how he died, this child deserves to know that her daddy was an awesome actor!

  • me

    Great news and a classy thing for those guys to do.

    Matilda looks sooooo much like Heath.

  • Lillianne

    Even more than the money I hope Matilda realizes the love and respect these actors have for her father. What a wonderful legacy.

  • deb

    Aw, that’s so sweet. Makes me love Johnny Depp even more, and suddenly I have a newfound respect for Jude Law and Colin Farrell.

    _______________________

    I agree – perfectly wonderful of all three of them. I can’t wait to see this movie. She is so adorable!!

  • str

    adorable? cute? really?! to me she looks absolutle non-adorable and un-cute, sorry…

  • sweetpea

    Matilda is SO cute. The spitting image of her daddy. I can see Michelle is trying her best as a single parent.

  • Matilda’s a cutie but she does

    Matilda is a cutie pie. I do think she looks like a cross betwen Tracy Ullman and Heath.

  • Dina

    Since Jude Collin and Johnny all have their kids, they know what it must be for the little girl to loose her father so soon. My respect and admiration for all 3 of them: they was a very good thing to do.

  • naomi

    Ouch! @ 08/18/2008 at 4:25 pm Oh, so when she grows up she’ll have money for drugs! LOL

    GET A LIFE LOSER!!!

  • Regina

    Good for Depp, Law and Farrell. Plus they’re rich enough!

  • Dee

    She’s got her daddy’s eyes :)

  • Jessica

    wow…..such gentlemen! What a nice thing to do for her :) she’s growing up so fast! :)

  • Liz

    I think this proves what many of us thought about Ledger’s family. His father is truly trash for taking this child’s rightful inheritance. Good for the guys to directly give Matilda the money. More than her piss poor grandfather ever did for her.

  • depeche

    I love Terry Gilliam, he is a real master of film, a true genius. Of course, cause he is a Python:-)))

  • c

    OMG she’s so adorable

    AN OBVIOUS FELLOW SCIENTOLOGIST – FREAK….

    MATILDA IS BY FAR WAY CUTER, MORE ADORABLE, AND PROBABLY MORE DOWN TO EARTH THAN SURI WILL EVER HOPE TO BE IN HER LIFETIME!!!! HAVING MICHELLE WILLIAMS, WHO HAS SHOWN NOTHING BUT CLASS THROUGH ALL OF THIS , AS A MOM, THIS LITTLE CUTIE PIE OF A GIRL WILL CERTAINLY GROW UP TO HAVE HER FEET FIRMLY ON THE GROUND, HAVE INFINITE WISDOM, AND LIVE A NORMAL LIFE AND WON’T GROW UP TO BE SOME WARPED, SPOILED, CELEBRITY KID.

    LOOOOOOOVE THE KIND GESTURE OF DEPP, FARRELL AND LAW. STAND UP GUYS IF YOU ASK ME!!!

  • leggy

    like the baby but the mom is so easy….ofcourse those actors will support fellow druggie Ledger

  • Angi

    She is a sweet little girl, who lost her father. The people who are calling her names and saying nasty things about her need to grown up. If you don’t have anything nice to say(considering she is a CHILD) then don’t say anything.

  • Star

    She looks just like her daddy. Its really heartwarming to hear that Johnny, Jude and Colin have given the money to her and its refreshing to know that there are still people out there who act because they love it rather than for the money.

    Respect to the three of them.

  • Pandora

    I agree Liz — while I think it’s a wonderful gesture on the part of the actors, Matilda’s grandfather should be forking over what is rightfully her inheritance. What a skum bag (assuming what they say is true regarding his son’s estate and the one of the other relative he pilfered away).

    She’s an adorable little girl and Michelle seems like a very good Mom. Nice to see them out and about, as always.

  • Breanne

    Cute! That is so sweet that they all donated their money to Matilda. Shows how great of people they are. Bless them. Matilda looks gorgeous.

  • kim

    She looks like her dad! :)

    It’s sweet that Johny Depp donated his salary, the other two probably felt inspired by him to do the same which is admirable!

  • naomi

    stop comparing Matilda with Suri!! they are babies!!!!!!
    what’s wrong with you people???

  • Mandy

    That’s great! They’re wonderful persons!

    BUT I DONT UNDERSTAND SOMETHING?, THEy ARE DOING THIS BECAUSE THEY WANT(wich is incredible), OR HEATH DIDN’T LEFT HER MONEY??
    Pliss can someone explain this to me??

  • hmm

    #41 I was wondering what that situation was too. I read a comment saying his father took the money from Heath’s estate. Why wouldn’t he give it to Matilda? Even if it was left to his father, you would would think the father would just give it to Matilda.

    Regardless, she’s a very cute little girl. It’s too bad she lost her father so young.

  • 2o0my

    wooow! that was really sweet of them!! that’s really cool what they did!

    God Bless Johnny, Jude, Colin and little Matilda :)

  • michelle

    She’s such a cute little girl!!!

  • Anon

    It’s really not about the money, bcz I’m sure Matilda Rose is well set. It’s the gesture. The idea that this is the very last movie we will ever see Heath in. Ever. And so they dedicated the money to Matilda, as he most likely would have done. So on his behalf they are doing this. It’s as if he were still here. It brought tears to my eyes. I adore all of them but especially now, for this.

  • http://promomami.blogspot.com Becca

    she’s adorable! she looks EXACTLY like her father!

  • isabella

    How does anyone know what Heath’s father has done? I’ve not seen anything pertaining to that whatsoever. I do believe some people just want to spread rumors.

    She looks just like her daddy… how adorable! Best wishes to her and her family.

  • kath

    how incredibly generous and selfless of these men to do such a thing, but they all have kids and have probably thought about what would happen to their own if they had died.
    god Matilda looks like Heath! i think that each and everytime i see her. god bless that little angel.

  • Jewelz

    Man, she looks just like her daddy!

  • hello to all

    This brought a tear to our eye and softened our callous heart!

    According to the UK’s The Sun, the three Hollywood stars who completed Heath Ledger’s final film role have donated their pay to his two-year-old daughter, Matilda.

    Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell were worried for Matilda’s future as Heath left an old will which did not include the little one.

    Heath’s dad, Kim Ledger, is in control of Heath’s estate. Family members have said they’re concerned that daddy will mismanage the actor’s money.

    The three played versions of Heath’s character, Tim, in fantasy epic The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus.

    Film director Terry Gilliam said, “They didn’t take money — it goes to Heath’s daughter. That’s extraordinary! And wonderful . . . 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. And we’ve got a movie full of wonderful people who did extraordinary things to help.”

    Johnny Depp is a father of two, Jude Law has four and Colin Farrel has a son.

    We love it. Dads looking out for one another!
