Depp Dedicates Some of His Island to Heath Ledger

Posted by Adam

JOHNNY Depp dedicated part of his private island to Heath Ledger.

The Rum Diary star and his long-term partner Vanessa Paradis occasionally let their pals use their island, which is in the Bahamas, including the relatives of the late Australian actor, who died of an accidental overdose in January 2008.

“After Heath Ledger died, I thought his family could use time away from the madness so they spend a good chunk of time there. There’s a location there that we call Heath’s Place,” he said.

As well as the tribute to Heath, parts of the island are dedicated to Vanessa and the couple’s children, Lily-Rose, 12, and nine-year-old Jack.

The island also has Keef Reef, Gonzo Beach and Brando Beach, named in honor of three of Johnny’s friends, Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards, late author Hunter S. Thompson and deceased acting legend Marlon Brando.

Johnny, 47, has previously admitted the island keeps him sane as he needs the privacy it offers him.

“The island might sound extravagant but I need somewhere I can breathe easily or just sit around and chat without someone taking my picture,” he said.
