Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp has paid a personal tribute to late Australian actor Heath Ledger by naming a section of his private island in the Bahamas after the tragic actor.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star owns Little Hall's Pond Cay in the Caribbean and has renamed a prime snorkelling spot there as Heath's Place, in memory of his friend, and admits the sunshine getaway provides the perfect place to unwind and escape from the pressures of Hollywood, reports contactmusic.com.
"I don't think I'd ever seen any place so pure and beautiful. (Pond Cay life) is my decompression. It's my way of trying to return to normalcy. Escapism is survival to me. You can feel your pulse rate drop about 20 beats. It's instant freedom...And a little morsel of anonymity," he said.
"Whenever I was getting frustrated about being 'novelty boy' and making movies, I told myself, calm down. I can come down here and disappear. I spent the Christmas season here," he added.
