Ethan Hawke - Ethan Hawke Impresses With Restaurant Tip

Ethan Hawke impressed staff at a New York restaurant by leaving a generous tip.

The 'Training Day' actor enjoyed a spinach and goat's cheese omelette at the Cafeteria eatery yesterday (11.01.12) and when his $13 bill arrived, he gave an extra $8 tip.

A staff member added: "He was wearing a beanie, scarf and gray peacoat and was quiet and low-key."

Ethan is not the only star known for his generous tips.

Last year, Johnny Depp thrilled staff at a British pub when he left $1,170 in gratuities.

The actor was shooting his new film 'Dark Shadows' at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, which is just outside London, and although he spent most of his evenings eating and drinking at local pub the Thatched Tavern.

A source said at the time: "Instead of choosing from the four hotel restaurants, including one which is Michelin-starred, he decided to hang out at a nearby pub with locals.

"Johnny chose to have dinner and drinks in the Thatched Tavern pub a mile-and-a-half up the road from his hotel. On the first night he left a $500 tip for pub staff, followed by $670 the night after."

Jessica Simpson also recently left an extra 60 per cent on a $500 restaurant bill after dining with her mother, assistant and two other friends at New York Italian restaurant Lavo.
