Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell have donated their pay from their latest film to Heath Ledger's daughter Matilda.
The trio were brought in to replace the actor in his last flick The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus after he died in January this year.
Johnny, 45, Jude, 35, and Colin, 32, play different versions of Heath's character Tim in the movie.
They decided to hand the money over to two-year-old Matilda - because she was left out of her dad's old will.
'They didn't take money - it goes to Heath's daughter,' director Terry Gilliam, 67, tells The Sun. 'That's extraordinary! And wonderful.
'And when you are part of that, you think, "Ah, this is maybe why I went into the movies in the beginning. I thought it would be full of wonderful people."
'And we've got a movie full of wonderful people who did extraordinary things to help.'
Heath was found dead at the age of 28 in his Manhattan flat after accidentally overdosing on prescription drugs.
Matilda is his daughter with ex-fiance Michelle Williams, 28. Heath's will was drawn up before she was born.
