Johnny Depp names beach on his private island after Heath LedgerJune 2nd, 2009 - 3:05 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, June 2 (ANI): Johnny Depp has named a beach on his 45-acre private Bahamian island after late Heath Ledger.
The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star has shown off his island, Little Hall’s Pond Cay, which he calls his “decompression”, in July’s Vanity Fair.
“It’s my way of trying to return to normalcy. Escapism is survival to me,” Us magazine quoted Depp as saying.
Little Hall’s Pond Cay features six different beaches, named after Depp’s partner, Vanessa Paradis, and their children, Lily Rose, 10, and Jack, 7, as well as his mentors Hunter S. Thompson and Marlon Brando.
The actor has even named one patch of water “Heath’s Place” after the Heath Ledger, who died of drug overdose last year (Jan 09).
Depp will be seen playing an incarnation of Ledger in the fantasy movie, ‘The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus’, which is due later this year. (ANI)
