Depp went through a particularly rough period in his life in 2007. Lily-Rose Depp, who was just 7 years old at the time, suffered from kidney failure. She stayed at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for nine days, and the actor and his then-wife Vanessa Paradis were frequently in the hospital to look after their daughter. Johnny Depp contributed $2 million to the hospital the next year once Lily-Rose Depp recovered. But that’s not it; he’s been dressing up as Jack Sparrow from his popular Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise and visiting patients ever since.

Johnny Depp would brighten the mood of the patients and make them smile. He even admitted it on the Graham Norton Show, stating, “For me, it’s a gift. They give me the gift. When my daughter was ill in Great Ormond Street it was the darkest period of my life. I’d always done these visits but after that experience, the visits became more and more important. The kids are so courageous but to be able to bring a smile or a giggle to the parents means everything in the world to me.” Johnny Depp truly is a man of his words and his gestures very well speak for why he had thousands and thousands of fans praying for his victory and supporting him throughout.
