Johnny Depp secretly visited London's Great Ormond St Hospital yesterday to donate 2 million dollars, the same hospital where in November he spent four hours reading stories to kids while in full character, complete with costume, as Capt Jack Sparrow. Great Ormond, of course, is the hospital where Depps daughter Lilly spent 9 days last March after E.coli poisoning led to the failure of her kidneys. The Herald Sun says:
Depp arrived unexpectedly at the renowned children's hospital where eight-year-old Lily-Rose was treated last year when her kidneys failed.Last week he invited five Great Ormond St doctors and nurses to the party for the London premiere of his film Sweeney Todd.And unknown to the public, Depp spent four hours at the hospital telling bedtime stories to patients dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates Of The Caribbean.This all started when Lilly stepped on a rusty nail. She went home to France where she got sicker and sicker, then was brought back to the London hospital, presumably because France is a land where rusty nails baffle science and kill kids by the thousands. One time they had a broken bottle and it became their king.
