Depp’s big donation

Johnny Depp is giving back in a big way.

A day after winning a Golden Globe, the Pirates of the Caribbean star on Monday gave a bundle of his own doubloons, $2 million worth, to London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital as thanks to the staff who saved his daughter’s life.

Per Britain’s Daily Mail, the 43-year-old Depp also made a surprise visit to the facility to personally thank the doctors and nurses.

The star’s eight-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose, was hospitalized in March after an E. coli poisoning reportedly caused her kidneys to fail.

Depp and his longtime companion and Lily-Rose’s mom, Vanessa Paradis, put their lives on hold (including filming of Sweeney Todd) for a bedside vigil. Fortunately, after intensive treatment, the child’s health gradually improved, and she was able to go home nine days later.

Depp and Paradis also have a six-year-old son, Jack.

As an extra thank-you, Depp reportedly invited Lily-Rose’s five doctors and nurses to last month’s London premiere party for Sweeney.

And in a gesture that undoubtedly put a smile on every sick kids’ face, Depp also secretly turned up at Great Ormond Nov. 29 and entertained its young patients with bedtime stories in the guise of Captain Jack Sparrow. (He even had his costume flown in from Los Angeles for the occasion.)

Lily-Rose apparently caught a virulent strain of the bacterium at a rented mansion in Richmond, Surrey, where the family was holed up while he was filming the big-screen adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical at nearby Pinewood Studios.

Burton halted production on Sweeney until Depp could return.

Depp told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview that the experience was the most terrifying moment of his life.

"To say it was the darkest moment, that’s nothing," he said. "It doesn’t come close to describing it. Words are so small."

He also added that he wasn’t sure whether he’d be able to make it back to the Sweeney set and suggested Burton consider recasting the role.

As it turned out, Depp did resume work on the movie, which on Sunday earned him his first Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy.
