'Depp Donates £1 Million To London Hospital'

Hollywood superstar JOHNNY DEPP has donated £1 million to Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN star gave the money to staff to thank them for saving his daughters life, reports the Daily Mail.

Johnny's daughter Lily-Rose was treated at the hospital last March when her kidneys failed.

Speaking about his daughter's illness the actor has said: "It was the most frightening thing we have ever been through. It was hell.

"But the magic is that she pulled through beautifully. Great Ormond Street was terrific, a great hospital."

The kind-hearted star also invited five doctors and nurses from the hospital to the premiere of his new movie SWEENEY TODD.

The newspaper added that Depp has also made appearances in the children's ward dressed as his most famous character, Captain Jack Sparrow.

Meanwhile, Depp has been rewarded for his performance in SWEENEY TODD with a Golden Globe.

He won the Best Actor in a Musical award for his role as the demon barber of Fleet Street.

The film, which was directed by TIM BURTON and starred HELEN BONHAM CARTER and SACHA BARON COHEN, also won the award for Best Film Musical.

Burton has recently announced he is ready to marry his long-term girlfriend HELEN BONHAM CARTER.

The director told the Radio Times magazine: "Helena and I feel so married we never got around to doing it, but I'm thinking about it.

"I'm a late bloomer."
