It’s no secret that sex-on-a-stick, Johnny Depp, has a special place in his heart for Heath Ledger. Depp was one of the 3 actors to finish Heath’s last project, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.” He, Jude Law and Colin Ferrell each took a role in finishing the film and then donated their paychecks to Matilda Ledger.
Johnny also a special place dedicated to the memory of Heath on his 45-acre private Bahamian island, Little Hall’s Pond Cay. It’s his sanctuary and calm from the media storm that follows Depp.
Via Vanity Fair:
“Little Hall’s Pond has six different beaches–named after Depp’s partner, Vanessa Paradis, and their children, Lily Rose and Jack, as well as his mentors Hunter S. Thompson and Marlon Brando–each with a personality and cove of its own, and one patch of water deemed “Heath’s Place” after the late actor Heath Ledger. There are several small residences, all solar-powered, and transportation consists of a fleet of green golf carts.
“I don’t think I’d ever seen any place so pure and beautiful,” Depp tells Brinkley of the island. “You can feel your pulse rate drop about 20 beats. It’s instant freedom. And that rare beast–simplicity–can be had. And a little morsel of anonymity…. Whenever I was getting frustrated about being ‘novelty boy’ and making movies, I told myself, Calm down. I can come down here and disappear.”
That settles it. I want my own island.
